Get a Job

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

The whining by individuals who feel a need to be on unemployment in perpetuity gets real old real quick.   So in an effort to help promote job growth, I am using this blog space to help promote U.S. Senator Dan Coats’ job fair next week. It’s Lafayette, but worth the drive.  There will be more […]

For What It’s Worth

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

My political colleagues have started dropping predictions, so I figured I may as well get on the bandwagon.  My predictions are based on what I’ve been picking up this morning as well as over the past several weeks.  Of course, things can change if we have a late surge after 3 p.m. U.S. Senate – […]

Political Predictions

Friday, October 29th, 2010

I’ve got some work to do this morning, so I have to take a little break from the usual political discussion.  In the meantime, I’m opening up the forum for you to make your own political predictions.  Feel free to throw in the percentages. U.S. Senate – Dan Coats v. Brad  Ellsworth v. Rebecca Sink-Burris […]

Ellsworth: “It’s Not Over”

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

U.S. Senate candidate Brad Ellsworth tells me that any Democrats who think he is giving up and conceding the race to Dan Coats are mistaken. At a breakfast meeting  this morning with the Marion County Democratic Chairman’s Club, an organization for large contributors, sources say Ellsworth virtually admitted the race for the Senate was over.   […]

Poll Positions

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

The latest polls on Indiana’s U.S. Senate race and Secretary of State’s race are revealing some bad news for Democrats.  According to the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics, if the election were held today Dan Coats would return to the U.S. Senate and Charlie White (at least for now) would be Indiana’s next Secretary […]

Two Week Notice

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

“Hey, maybe you haven’t been keeping up on current events, but we just got our asses kicked, pal!” It’s not everyday I can use a quote from the 1986 film Aliens, but after talking on background with several  Democrats across the state Monday, I seriously think, for the first time this election season, we could […]

Mo Money, Mo Money, Mo Money

Friday, October 15th, 2010

The campaign finance reports for the latest filing periods are up.  Here’s how the candidates are doing and what they’ve got left to spend for the last two weeks of the 2010 campaign. The Dan Coats campaign tells me they raised more than $2 million in the third quarter and have more than $1.3 million […]

Thursday’s Thoughts

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Wow, there’s nothing like two weeks before an election to have multiple story lines pop up all over the place.  So let’s get started. Indiana Democrats continue to accuse Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dan Coats of lying about when he began to pursue his lobbying career.  State Chairman Dan Parker has another news conference slated […]

Another Day, Another Political Attack

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

When you see an opening, no matter how small, take advantage of it.   I am sure that slogan is on the wall right now over at Indiana Democratic State Headquarters.  For months Democrats have been pushing the issue of Republican Dan Coats’ ties as a former lobbyist.   To date, I would argue, that charge has […]

That Didn’t Impress Me Much

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Dan Coats was a lobbyist.  Brad Ellsworth supports the Obama-Pelosi agenda.  We need smaller government. If you missed Monday night’s debate from the IUPUI Campus I just told you in 15 words virtually everything that you missed.   I was expecting more from 8th District Congressman Brad Ellsworth, former U.S. Senator and Ambassador Dan Coats and […]
