AZ Congressional Races – survey says – GOP leads!

Yay! Dave Schweikert is ahead of Harry Mitchell in our AZ-05 :0)

AZ-5: “Despite Representative Harry Mitchell having 97 percent name ID (with a 42 to 46 percent favorable-unfavorable rating) compared to challenger David Schweikert’s 77 percent (33 to 18 percent favorable), Schweikert leads on the ballot by a 50 to 44 percent margin.”

AZ-8: “Despite Representative Gabrielle Giffords having 99 percent name ID (with a 52 to 41 percent favorable-unfavorable rating) compared to challenger Jesse Kelly’s 78 percent (33 to 25 percent favorable), Giffords and Kelly are currently tied on the ballot at 46 percent each.”…

Health Care Action: Speak Now or Forever Hold Your…Prostate

IMHO, TOTUS’ ego will not allow him to let this go. Especially after he gets a load of the WaPo piece by Matt Welch and Nick Gillespie that points out Obama is nothing like Big Dawg, (which is how he sold himself, as a pro business moderate Dem). He is instead Carter – on Steroids (something we have been saying since the primaries):

…Barely six months into his presidency, Barack Obama seems to be driving south into that political speed trap known as Carter Country: a sad-sack landscape in which every major initiative meets not just with failure but with scorn from political allies and foes alike….Obama must be furtively reviewing the history of recent Democratic administrations for some kind of road map out of his post-100-days ditch.

So far, he seems to be skipping the chapter on Bill Clinton and his generally free-market economic policies and instead flipping back to the themes and comportment of Jimmy Carter…

…According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, more than 80 percent are concerned that health-care reform will increase costs or diminish the quality of care. Even as two House committees passed a reform bill last week, the director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office warned that the proposal “significantly expands the federal responsibility for health-care costs” and dramatically raises the cost “curve.” This sort of voter and expert feedback can’t be comforting to the president….

When TOTUS reads this part, he will eat his liver and insist Health Care be put through so he can declare a pyrrhic victory over Hillary:

…Finally, it’s time to connect the poster boy for hope to the original Man From Hope. After Bill Clinton bit off more domestic policy than even he could chew, leading to a Republican rout in the midterm elections of 1994, the 42nd president refocused his political intelligence on keeping his ambitions and, as a result, the size of government growth, limited. Though there is much to complain about in his record, the broad prosperity and mostly sound economic policy under his watch aren’t included.

This shouldn’t be a difficult task for Obama. As a political animal, he has always resembled Clinton more than Carter. This might help him avoid the Carteresque pileup he’s driving into. Far more important, it just might help the rest of us.

Let us note here that when Hill pushed for UHC in ’93 there was NO SCHIP. Millions of American children went without health care. When her UHC plan failed, Hill got SCHIP done and now millions of American children that need coverage get it. I am not willing to give up my family’s health care and health insurance as we know it to enroll 15 million people who are already eligible and simply not enrolled while bankrupting the country and killing the economy with tax hikes in the face of a sustained recession with a flat recovery. That is what this plan to GUT Medicare and redistribute the health care to other people will do.

It is unacceptable and should be defeated in Congress. (I support Wyden-Bennett (see our write ups here) which will actually expand coverage with free market principles and not gut Medicare or kill the economy and in particular small business and jobs and change the delivery of health care as we know it while failing to control costs which are generated, as CBO acknowledges, by DEMOGRAPHICS…

Look at this chart one more time:

This is so important for our economy and our children and our parents and our lives (literally) that I am linking Dick Morris

From PoliGazette commenter Klegan, via Instapundit:

“Seeing his popularity draining away rapidly, President Obama has cynically decided to ram through the complex health care legislation in two weeks, without debate or amendment. He is going to give up the attempt to win sixty votes in the Senate and will use the budget reconciliation procedure – which is only used for budget bills – to push it through with fifty votes.” http://www.dickmorris.com/blog/
