Impact of anti-incumbency, anti-Obamacare in Landrieu’s race, upcoming Louisiana elections?

landrieu-blueIn Louisiana, in the land where the Affordable Care Act, (Obamacare) has few friends, Mary Landrieu is running for U.S. Senate with the albatross around her neck because of her vote, but is she hurting herself further in her campaign to win a 4th term? 


Despite the public’s disdain for the healthcare law, is the election a shoe-in for the GOP?

What is the political message behind the recent Louisiana 5th congressional district election in which a newcomer beat the old-political machines and apparent incumbents?

Aren’t  republicans being hypocritical over their incessant anti-Obamacare politics when the concept was a conservative idea?

How might the anti-incumbency and anti-DC attitude, displayed in the recent election for the 5th Congressional District race, carry over to the US Senate race?

With the website showing improvement, with the public now being able to compare prices and with the law providing insurance despite pre-existing conditions and caps of coverage, is there a change sea change, or at least a possible wave-change, occurring that might create a better political environment for the healthcare law for Senator Landrieu and other democrats in Louisiana?

Politicos-- Jim Brown and Jeff  Crouere discuss these very issues in Part I of a recent Google Hangout chat with  Bayoubuzz publisher Stephen Sabludowsky.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
