Hodespocrisy –‘Chamber Of Commerce’ Edition

Paul Hodes gets an ‘A+’ for toeing the Pelosi/Obama Party line, and a least an ‘A’ for recycling the party talking points. For example, Barack Obama has been wandering around claiming the Chamber of Commerce is using foreign money to affect local elections. Paul Hodes has been wandering around New Hampshire saying the exact same thing.

Happy Thanksgiving eh?

In recognition of finding the Bahama’s, public service union employees all across the fruited plain, get a paid day off. I’m not sure we need to “explore” this any further to get to the nexus of thought on the why’s and what for’s in this decision making process.

Destroying The Future Of America

Democrats continue to insist that they created jobs.  To do this they extracted trillions from our economic future in an effort to create jobs that did not yet exist–that perhaps were  not needed yet.  Looking at similar exercises, cash for clunkers–which moved car sales forward a few months but has since resulted in a collapse …

John Lynch Must Go!

New Hampshire Democrats, and John Lynch have seen their own policy goals mirrored on the big screen in Washington DC and they could not be happier.  Every time the feds have a handout, no matter what the strings, Lynch grabs it with both hands, pimping out the Granite State for one time Federal dollars with …

Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em

Greene Shaheen, Carol CO2-Porter, and Paul ‘Carbon Credits’ Hodes, all support massive taxation on emissions becasue without them, we are doomed…doomed I tell you DOOMED!

The Only Possibility For A Jobless Recovery

To use my sinking ship analogy from last year, for every 1000 folks he’s got bailing out the ship that were not helping before, ten thousand have slowed down or stopped bailing altogether. Paint all the rosy pictures you like, the end result is that the same. Obama’s economic ship is sinking faster.

What About Union Campaign Ethics

Bill O’Brien, the next speaker of the New Hampshire House, has drafted a bill for next session meant to resolve the conflict of interest that exists when state employees campaign for state politicians. Mr. O’Brien’s motivation, as reported in an article in the morning UL by John DiStaso, is Pam Walsh who collected thousands in political consulting fees from Teflon John Lynch while employed by the state.

Shea-Porter has amended 27 Seperate FEC filings.

If FEC disclosure amendments are really that big a deal, then why are we not discussing the fact that Carol Shea-Porter has had to amend her FEC filings 27 times. That’s one filing amended for ever 1.6 months in office. Is she that sloppy? Maybe she took advice from Nancy Pelosi instead of reading the filing rules herself –we know she’ not very good at reading things.

Hey, Hodes Campaign! Riddle Me This…

The larger problem for Mr. Bergman is this; if in fact, he has evidence to prove his otherwise vague remarks, he might be subject to investigation for violating federal law himself by obstructing, concealing, or failing to promptly report legitimate violations of federal election law.
