Labor Day…Political Tidbits

Labor Day…a traditional start of political campaigns…something better start this special election for Governor…or no one is going to vote…there is no enthusiasm about this election…it appears even party activists are quiet.

WHAT IS GOING ON…State Republican Committee members should be furious when they read the memo sent by their paid staff to Secretary of State…the resolution passed in July was specific [how delegates to 2012 national convention would be chosen]…the memo in no way reflects the decision made…click & read the highlighted sections of the RESOLUTION [which is the formula passed] and the MEMO [Binding of Delegates prepared at the party headquarters]…does that look like what party officials voted 79 to 24?  

Seems State Chairman Stuart…will need to firepunish/disciplineask for a resignation…let’s hope Stuart did not “sign off” on this MEMO…if it is learned he did…then he should resign immediately…what was done is just plain dishonest…and disrespectful to state GOP committee members.  Talk about a serious breach of trust!

 HOW TO TREAT OTHERS…a story about the kindness of the people in Gander, Newfoundland…as the world faced 9/11…provides an example…that should not be forgotten.

Here is some Labor Day readingMaureen Dowd’s Sunday NYT column “One and Done?

Gov. Perry & then Gov. Manchin…signed a letter in October, 2008 urging Congress to pass an economic recovery package…[now-Sen. Joe Manchin] at the time served as chairman of the Democratic Governors Association…nothing unusual here.

WV Education will get a boost…from former First Lady Laura Bush…she will address the annual fund raising dinner…of the Education Alliance…November 9th in Charleston…information @ 304.342.7850 or www.educationalliance.org.

Here is your chance to have lunch with Dick Morrisclick here…I do it every day

Gear-up for a real fight in WV Senate…if Tomblin removes Acting…from his title and become the real Governor.
