Well this doesn't bode well for the liklihood of deposing Obama in 2012....
From MSNBC -- In a special House election carefully watched by national political strategists, Democrat Kathy Hochul won what had been a Republican seat Tuesday in upstate New York, lifting Democrats’ hopes for the 2012 campaign.
As her campaign’s centerpiece, Hochul attacked changes in the Medicare program proposed by House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan.
The smear campaign against Ryan's budget proposal has already begun with an ad that shows a republican literally pushing grandma out of her wheelchair and off a cliff. If NY-26 is any indicator, republicans have an uphill battle to get seniors to not buy the tried-and-true, Medicare scare tactics employed by the democrats and the media heading into election season.
The problem America faces now is that everybody agrees that the federal budget must be slashed if we are to even think about approaching solvency and avoid defaulting on our national debt, but nobody wants programs that are important to them to get altered in any way. That craven democrats use this fear to convince less than intelligent voters to side with them is beyond reprehensible and dishonest. But then, to call a liberal reprehensible and dishonest is to repeat myself.
