Democrats Are Losing Independents Support

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

Congress returns from a summer recess on Tuesday.  President Obama will address a joint session of Congress mid-week.  He must believe another speech or a more “prescriptive” health care plan will put his Democrats colleagues at ease.  Well, he may be too late.

Democrats should be terrified by the loss of support from Independents according to a politics column written by Charlie Cook for The National Journal.  The blame is squarely placed on President Obama. 

It is not too late for Republicans to give careful thought to the impact Independents can have on their success in 2010 & 2012.

Democrats Can Retreat On Healthcare

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

Columnist Dick Morris offered an interesting perspective on how Democrats can retreat on healthcare.  His theory comes from a criticism Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) offered on the Obama healthcare initiative.  I thought I would share the Morris piece.

In the meantime the passing of Senator Kennedy I believe will be a turning point in the Senate and in the resolution of the healthcare issue.  There will be no retreat.
