[quote]sam brownback[/quote] You're correct. And why did he leave the Senate? Answer: [quote]On April 1, 2010, news sources reported that Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) had urged an ethics investigation into a possible violation of the Senate's gifts rule by Re...

re: How bad was Caldwell?? - adono
[quote]To all the people saying JBE is going to raise taxes...you are correct. However, Vitter would have raised taxes too. There is no way to fix the budget problems in the State without raising taxes or a constitutional convention to get rid of all the mandatory dedicated funding. There isn't ...

[quote]I would like to hear the logic of someone who voted for Edwards and Landry.[/quote] OK, I'll play. JBE vs. DV: Vitter's arrogance and character flaws went against the grain of the majority of voters...especially female voters. JBE is short on executive experience but his West Point b...

How bad was Caldwell?? - adono
It's almost unheard of for a sitting Attorney General, who is endorsed by the Sheriffs and District Attorneys, to lose a race. The political indictment on Caldwell's ineptitude is amplified by the fact that the challenger/winner has no real civil or criminal legal experience. ...

re: Why did Vitter do so poorly this time in a statewide election - adono
[quote]The tipping point was the lies and deception used by Vitter to keep Angelle and Dardenne out of the runoff. Their supporters were independents and republicans who hated Vitter for disparaging their candidate. In the runoff all of Angelle and Dardenne key supporters jumped on the JBE bandwagon...

re: Vitter NOT RUNNING for Senate - adono
[quote]He never liked the Senate, it was just a job to hold while waiting to become governor. [/quote] That really doesn't make much sense. First, Vitter was in the House for many years before ever running for the Senate. He knew what the Senate job was before going for it. If he was simply "...

re: Why did Vitter do so poorly this time in a statewide election - adono
[quote]Voters cared more about Vitter's ties to Jindal than they did about JBE's ties to Obama. Jindal has become toxic in Louisiana. I also think that Vitter's craven attempt to score points off the Paris attacks backfired once people had a chance to calm down.[/quote] These 2 points were pa...

re: Vitter NOT RUNNING for Senate - adono
Win or lose he wasn't going to stay in the Senate. I said months ago that something is definitely wrong with the Vitter for governor picture. A senior U.S. Senator doesn't run for governor...unless someone in DOJ whispered in his ear that he wore out his welcome in D.C.....

re: Changing my vote to Vitter - adono
[quote]So if a no-tax increase pledge is "snake oil" and "BS", would you advocate raising taxes as the only solution to balance the budget? Does spending play no part at all?[/quote] The only area that can take a hit is the capital improvements budget. Not really sure where that stands right now ...

re: Changing my vote to Vitter - adono
[quote]Nevertheless - that would be quicker IMO than calling a convention[/quote] The problem is that there are so many areas that would have to be repealed and there's a 99.9% chance none of them would ever get out of committee. It's not realistic to think that legislators aren't going to succu...

[quote]The other option is to have the legislature repeal each one of the amendments and locking in the dedicated spending. I'm not a lawyer so I do not know if you can repeal multiple amendments with only one new amendment. [/quote] The legislature can't repeal a Constitutional Amendment; that...

[quote]Isn't the Constitutional Convention the exact definition of a shortcut? [/quote] Absolutely not. You must not have around the last time we had one. It'll take more than a year to seat a Convention and have any reasonable product; it's then sent to a ratification vote by the people...
