Word to the wise.
If you are in the world of politics, don’t use the word slave, plantation and surely not the N-word.
One would have thought that Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy would have learned from his prior mistake. Apparently not.
The nightmare at the border shows no sign of abating anytime soon. Thousands of illegal aliens, including children, have crossed the border this year.
This year has seen a massive spike in unaccompanied children crossing the border illegally. Not surprisingly, 90 percent of the illegal minors do not show up for their court hearings and prefer to escape onto the streets of this country, knowing there is very little chance they will ever be deported.
In an e-mail, Col. Rob Maness’s campaign manager Michael D. Byrne writes that “the choice in the Louisiana Senate race is becoming clearer and clearer.” He argues that Bill Cassidy misrepresented the NorthShore Republican Men’s Club Meet the Press Dinner as a “meet and greet” for himself on Facebook. This choice, Byrne asserts, is evidence of “the stark contrast between the politicians and the people.” Unlike Cassidy, Maness, he writes, supported and valued the efforts of his local Republican Club, asking his campaign staff to promote the event to area Republicans.
Media bias strikes again?
According to a Baton Rouge group of democrats, the answer is "yes", but in a way it is calling the "untold story"
The political scene has plenty to discuss today as the oil and gas industry has filed suit against Louisiana AG Buddy Caldwell, the Democratic Party (at least throughout the nation, but likely not in Louisiana) seem to support Democrats handling much of government, except for the all-important economy and Tea Party favorite Rob Maness has taken a shot against his competition Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy on the flood insurance disaster issue.
With Congress and the White House still negotiating over whether to keep government open, the public relations campaigns continue to attract the eyes and minds of the Louisiana voters.
The fallout from the government shutdown debacle has been devastating to the Republican Party. Poll results show the party is viewed negatively by 70% of the American people. In addition, Congress has only a 5% approval rating, the lowest in history. While Democrats control the Senate and are also unpopular, the media has focused their blame for the shutdown on the Republican Party.
The shutdown of the federal government is coming.
The Louisiana republican Party has issued a statement applauding their efforts along with a conservative coalition business groups, the Jindal administration and lobbyists to repel the coalition of Republican fiscal conservatives and Democratic leaders to compromise on the budget.
First, it was the political agenda of the moribund Louisiana Democrats that the so-called “fiscal hawks” may revive. And dependingon what they do this week in the Louisiana Legislature, Gov. Bobby Jindal’s prospects may be brightened as well while they destroy theirs.
