No Debate, Internet Rules Louisiana Elections

Friday, 23 September 2011 14:15 Written by

mailThere is no debate.  The Internet is continuing to dominate Louisiana elections. 
This domination is even more evident today as political e-mails and press releases fly into the inboxes.  Moments ago, the Dardenne campaign sent out a statement by campaign presser, Jason Hebert who took on fellow Republican Billy Nungesser.  The latter is challenging the incumbent Dardenne for the Lt. Governor’s spot.  The issue is whether Nungesser is running away from debates.

Obama, Bernacke's Movies Defies Bridge To Economic Growth

It was almost like watching a scene in a B-grade monster movie. Just before being attacked by the monster mutant, the victim empties his revolver into the beast and then, in one last futile gesture, throws the gun at the creature before being devoured. That scene captures the plight of Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke as he announced the Fed’s latest attempt to jumpstart the sluggish U.S. economy.

WhopperAfter several lackluster debate performances, it is clear that Texas Governor Rick Perry is not ready for prime time.

In the Fox News debate last night, Perry once again seemed unprepared and unpolished. To his critics who disagree with his position on providing in-state tuition for children of illegal immigrants, Perry said “I don’t think you have a heart.” This whopper insulted millions of Americans who do not want their tax dollars being spent on illegal immigrants. Perry does not seem to understand that lavishing state benefits on people who cross our border illegally just encourages more people to flood into this country from Mexico. As Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) noted during the debate, this policy serves as a “magnet” for more illegal immigration.

BreesNew Orleans Saints news and opinion:
The Saints (1-1) are favored by 4 over the Texans (2-0) and after Drew Brees gets through with them on Sunday at noon in the Superdome, the odds are the Texans won't rank No.1 in NFL defense next week.

The Saints sacked Bears quarterback Jay Cutler six times last Sunday and with DE Will Smith returning, should have an even better pass rush.
