Can Mike McIntyre (NC-7) really claim to be “blue dog?”

Posted by

A recently released Associated Press article on the Operation Counterweight race between David Rouzer (R) and Mike McIntyre (D) has echoed a common assertion regarding Mike McIntyre’s political status. A member of his party’s conservative Blue Dog caucus, McIntyre casually quotes Scripture, rails against illegal immigrants, touts his votes against “Obamacare” and…

People who work in sales often rely on leads.  The better the source of the lead, the better the lead itself.  So when your lead comes from the President of the United States and his Secretary of State, you’d be foolish not to follow up and close that puppy. The leader of…

Because one of the symbols is an Indian peace pipe. And you are supporting someone who falsely claimed to be Indian, and who used that false claim in the most cynical ways in her career. Every one of her claims to actual ancestry has been proven false.  Every one of them, including the…

I don’t have much to say about last night’s debate—other than to describe the image that came to mind every time Joe Biden smirked and laughed and interrupted and bullied.  It was the image of Obama, watching on TV, alternately pacing and standing still, hand over his eyes except for a…

Optimism is sweeping the country unexpectedly (via Drudge): U.S. consumer sentiment unexpectedly rose to its highest level in five years in October as consumers became more optimistic about the overall economy in a possible boost to President Obama’s reelection hopes next month….

Remember the “fairy tale”? And the race card? Remember how Hillary was “likable enough”? Why are ANY supporters of Hillary and Bill supporting the person who is about to throw Hillary under the Libya bus? You mean nothing to him.  Why does he mean anything to you?

Assessment — Not sure how to rate this. I wonder how Biden’s constant laughing, smirks, and bombastic language (“bunch of malarkey”) played with the viewers. Biden also talked over Ryan constantly, and the moderator often cut short Ryan’s answers. Ryan also didn’t get a chance to respond to many of…
