Move along, no scandal here

Fox News’ anchor Megyn Kelly has been hot on the case of the Black Panther voter intimidation. She had a lengthy interview with J. Christian Adams of the Justice Dept. who told about the slam-dunk case being more or less dropped by the DOJ.

Yesterday she debated Democrat strategist Kirsten Powers and she didn’t hold back. Check this out:

Voter Intimidation

Watch the Fraud and Show Your Worth

It is well known that Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty (R) has aspirations for the presidency. He has been visiting Republican conventions, such as the recent one in Nashville, and setting up fund raising pacs.

However, if he lets the alleged voter fraud that elected Al Franken to the Senate  continue, Pawlenty will not be a candidate worthy of consideration.

In the six month post election  recount, Pawlenty trusted the Democrat Secretary of State to fairly ascertain what went on even though he was funded by the George Soros project to elect Democrat Secretaries of state.

Now the Minnesota Majority has conducted a study of the recount that finds at least 341 convicted felons in largely Democratic Minneapolis-St. Paul voted illegally in the 2008 race between Franken and Coleman, the Republican incumbent.  Their final recount “showed Franken beat Coleman by 312 votes – fewer votes than the number of felons whose illegal ballots were counted,” according to their study. Furthermore, the report charges that efforts to get state and federal authorities to act on its findings have been “stonewalled” according to Fox News.

If Pawlenty can’t conduct an honest review and won’t stand up for a fellow Republican, in my opinion, he can’t be trusted. I’d like to see what his next move is.

CA backs Haslam

In the primary, that is.

Their rationale, however, has me begging to differ.

“Haslam projects the capacity to work with members of both parties to confront the very serious fiscal problems that will confront the next governor in 2011,” the editors write. OK, except that the next legislature looks to be solidly Republican, so that isn’t exactly my No. 1 concern.

They continue: “He has a sense of perspective and a level of maturity that lift him above his competitors in the GOP race.” How about Wamp’s 16 years in Congress and Ramsey’s many years at state government?

“He has the disposition to work well with members of the Tennessee congressional delegation, members of the General Assembly, local officials, business leaders and the public.” Red flag translation: He won’t confront Democrats but will try to appease them.

The newspaper goes on to say “it is troubling, however, that Haslam has declined to make full public disclosure of his personal income tax returns  related to his family-owned Pilot Oil Corp.” I guess that means in the general election they are free to bring this up ad nauseum to the detriment of the Republican and benefit of McWherter.

Sometimes an endorsement is anything but, wouldn’t you say?

Gubernatorial Debate tonight

Haslam, Ramsey and Wamp will face the debate moderator tonight at 7 on Channel 5. I hope many Tennesseans watch it. The dirty little secret – well not that secret – is that whoever wins the primary will win the governorship. Reading McWherter’s answers in The Commercial Appeal yesterday, I couldn’t help but think how lame they were. He seemed to be trying to tell Democrats and Republicans what they want both want to hear. I felt he tried to disconnect himself from Obama, but I don’t think any Democrat can successfully do that this year.

Go Read This

There is a great article over at www.americanthinker.com that I consider a must read.

“Are You an American, or Do You Just Live Here?” is the title. Sadly, I think most people just live here.

Years ago someone said to me, “I pray for our  country every day. Don’t you?” I was taken aback. I had never even thought to do it. I just assumed that everything would go along as it had. The more I thought about it, the more appalled I was at my own complacency.
