WOW! You've GOT to be kidding me!

This is a HUGE change in just a week!

It looks like Hoffman may pull it off!

If Hoffman wins and the GOP gubnatorial candidate in Viginia wins as big as projected, it will be a huge repudiation of Obama AND the Republicans that those on the Right call “RINOS”.

If I were a Democrat in Congress or worked at the Democratic National Committee..and Hoffman and the GOP candidate in Virgina win.. I would be afraid of 2010..VERY afraid.

Maybe Obama and Pelosi better back off from the extreme agenda..before they destroy the Democratic Party?

The Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot, if Hoffman wins this election it will be a big, and deserved, kick in the pants to Obama and the Dem leadership. And the Republican Party had better take notice as well. History has shown us that they fall on their faces every time they turn away from their principles….

Tales of Hoffman, Entr’acte « Submitted to a Candid World
Pingback posted October 30, 2009 @ 8:31 am

[...] Last night, finally, saw Doug Hoffman, third-party candidate endorsed by Sarah Palin, meet his opposition, including Republican Dede Scozzafava, the woman he’d pledged to endorse. The results weren’t pretty. The highlights, both in Part 3, reveal a candidate visibly out of depth on local issues (on water rights, he spouts platitudes while Scozzafava & Owens explain specifics), and plainly with an eye towards a national career first, while the district remains a distant second. We’re all well versed in the idea that “earmarks” — or district “pork” — are too often corrupted. Congressmen score overpriced rewards for political gain, and the taxpayers are left picking up the check. Fine — that does happen  (“Bridge to Nowhere”). But “pork” exists for a good reason, and part of a representative’s job is improving her district, responsibly. By swearing off all earmarks, Hoffman is making a promise he can’t possibly keep; threatening military families dependent on local Fort Drum; and foregoing, as Scozzafava points out, a chance to not improve, but build the north country’s infrastructure for the first time. Dede’s pushback nails the point — Hoffman isn’t just about “principle before party.” He’s “principle before district.” It’s a sad commentary on democracy when an irresponsible, dangerously uninformed candidate can poll in the 30%s.
