Allen Ahead Of Kaine By 1% in VA

Scott Rasmussen gives us his latest look at the US Senate race in Virginia that shows George Allen on top of Tim Kaine by a single percentage point.

George Allen (R) 46%
Tim kaine (D) 45%

This poll was done Aprl 23rd among 500 likely voters. I hope this means we will get some presidential numbers from Virginia tomorrow.

    Damn Rasmussen for not showing us the Pres numbers today like he did w/ MO & OH

  3. GF says:

    “…remember the big picture…”

    Not the best words to use in reference to Christie.

    Bitter, should that happen, the new registration numbers should help you break 20%. I will officially stay neutral in the current race. If Meehan wins, great! If not, you’ll get a check from me when your committee is set up in 2013.

    I hear that former Miss America Erika Harold is thinking about jumping into the IL-13 race. If she makes it all the way through along with Mia Love, the CBC could have its hands full with four black Republicans making noise and grabbing media attention (unless MSDNC tries to ignore them).

  4. GF says:

    “Christie…would swallow Biden whole…”

    Exactly the problem, no? I love the guy but worry about the weight.

  5. jason says:

    I hate to waste a post on a dead thread…

    Look if by the luck of the draw and the law of averages one day I agree with Bunu on something, does that make me an America hating self loathing racist anti-semitic loser?

  6. GPO says:

    14.Forget about Christie, it ain’t going to happen. My DC insider tells me that in fact the NUMBER ONE (numero uno) factor that Romney will consider is the first rule for a veep pick. First do no harm. Romney will not take chances. What he does NOT need is to take the focus of this race off of Obama’s failures and make it all about a 54 inch waistline…or whatever it is.

    sounds like Daniels/ Portman to me

  7. jason says:

    So if you are unfortunate enough to agree with Rockefeller Troll I maintain you are not necessarily a moronic troll who is too dumb to realize he was outed long ago…

  8. MFG says:

    Romney 48
    UnicornJesus 44


  9. Bitterlaw says:

    GF – I know George Badey. I have dealt with him in court. He is successful because he gets 20% of every dollar that goes to Workers Compensation claimants and 33-40% of every dollar that goes to Plaintiffs because of trials or settlements. He makes more money than I do and doesn’t work as hard. I just have no interest in representing the claimants/Plaintiffs. I can’t stand them.

  10. jason says:

    I agree that Romney will be conservative on his pick but I don’t necessarily agree that is the best way to go.

  11. EML says:

    183.Breaking News:

    If this ambulance chaser defeats Pat Meehan in November ( ) I am going to declare that I am running for Congress again in 2014.

    Comment by Bitterlaw — April 24, 2012 @ 12:06 pm
    Not going to happen.

    The district went from D+3 to R+1.

    Badey is a third or fourth tier candidate. The Dems couldn’t find a state Rep or Sen to run against Meehan, so they had to scrape the bottom of the barrel for this guy. He loaned his campaign $127K and has raised a paltry $80K from donors. He is on the bottom level of the Red to Blue list, with a bunch of other losers (candidates in places like MO-04, OK-02, SD-AL, and TN-04).

    Cook, Rothenberg, and Sabato all rate as Likely Republican. I think that’s being generous. Meehan is safe.

  12. Bitterlaw says:

    I understand the concern about Christie’s weight but you can do that with other potential VPs. Ayotte? No – with large breasts, ovaries abd a cervix there is too great a risk of cancer. Rubio? No – too tan so melanoma is urking somewhere. GF? No – with his troubles, the undetected colon cancer is the only thing holding his intestines together.

  13. MFG says:

    Today’s Daily Obama UnicornJesus Art:

  14. GF says:

    11- EML! Stop pooh-pooing our chances here! We’re going to keep the House as it is, and if putting up with an ambulance chaser for two years is the price for installing an HHR caucus in the House, so be it! FWIW, I hope to double the HHR caucus by taking CA-52 in the coming years.

  15. MFG says:


    Men his age that big are HUGE risks for heart attacks

    John Candy et al

    No, let him get the stomach surgery and go for it again in 2016

  16. Bitterlaw says:

    EML – you are killing my dream. I always wondered what it would be like to speak to 10 Republicans at the same time.

  17. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    I always thought Christie might run for Senate in 2014

  18. GF says:

    Bitter, I’m not worried about his actual weight; that his business. I’m concerned with the tripe the media will push for months trying to scare people that their potential VP could fall oevr dead any day, so they should reelect the spry septagenarian Biden instead.

  19. Bitterlaw says:

    GF and Bitterlaw in Congress? The Republic trembles.

  20. Brandon says:

    Christie has no desire to be a senator. He’s an executive. The next step is the presidency.

  21. GF says:

    PA guys, I read that Critz has the unions firmly in hand and is beating up on Fraudmire. Any chance Critz slips by him tonight? Other pundits seem to think so.

  22. Rockefeller Republican says:

    Amusing that many on here base their VP preference on such superficial reasoning.

    Christie’s fat…BFD? Be concerned with his record, not his waistline.

  23. GF says:

    19- As well it should, Bitter. Coupled with your sincerity, I promise to be no less ruthless than any successfull powerhouse has been up to now.

  24. GF says:

    22- It’s not a preference, but rather a legitimate concern as to how the media will brainwash the sheeple. Besides, I’ve no preference in this decision; the only preference that matters is Mitt’s.

  25. jason says:

    I think the main thing going against Christie at the moment is that he was endorsed by the troll.

  26. Bitterlaw says:

    GF – I have a shocking confession. I could not care less about Critz or any other person not on my ballot. In contested primaries, I just see who Jul likes and vote against them. I rely on MD for numbers. If I like the numbers, I accept them. If not, I assume that MD is drunk.

  27. jason says:

    Besides, having to eat all day long at diners and roadside greasy spoons for the length of the campaign would probably kill Christie.

  28. EML says:

    21 – It’s true, Critz has been raking in the union endorsements. Fraudmire has had to move far to the left in the primary as a result. With that said, I still think it leans Fraudmire. The old parts of his district in Beaver and Allegheny counties account for more than half of the population in the district so he has the advantage of name recognition there. The polls show the race tightening, but Altmire ahead. It’ll be close either way for sure. I say 53-47 Altmire.

    Either way, I think we are in an even better position to win this seat. Keith Rothfus lost by just 2 in 2010. He is up again. If Altmire wins – he had to run far to the left to win the primary and lost a lot of his base in Lawrence and Mercer counties where he ran far ahead of Obama/Onorato/Sestak. If Critz wins, it’s almost all new territory to him and the people in Beaver/Allegheny who voted McCain/Altmire won’t be voting for Critz this time around.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if Kelly/Senator Ayotte has followed my political failures as closely as I follow her success. I doubt it.

  30. Rockefeller Republican says:

    LOL @ 25…

    Why worry about the media? They’re doing their best to shaft Romney at every opportunity…

    Worrying how they would react to Christie is downright funny! Christie would have a field day with them.

    If some here are worried about the media, time to get your prescriptions refilled.

  31. jason says:

    No I am worried on why a troll would endorse him.

    Although you ARE a pretty dumb troll….

  32. Bitterlaw says:

    Rock’s love of Christie worries me, too.

  33. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    Meanwhile in the fairy tale world of RV voters, Obama is @ 50% approval and +7 on Romney in Gallup

  34. GF says:

    Rocky Troll, stop playing games; it’s about the stupid people in our country and you know it. They aren’t the swiftest folks around, and many of them are turned off by the qualities we admire such as candor and a willingness to bully the media around (whom most assuredly deserve it). Christie would indeed be the best attack dog by far, but I worry that the people would be turned away by it, more so b/c too many of them buy into the media whores that push this nonsense. red state voters will be just fine, blue state voters by and large won’t matter. It’s the mushy middle in the purple states who think we have to bow down and cater to their whims that are the problem.

  35. DW says:

    Gallup tracking has more troll bait today….Obama up two points and Romney down two…so they have it 49/42..


  36. jason says:

    Ann Romney just called, I guess nobody told her I already voted.

  37. jason says:

    Ahh, the troll probably had wind of the Gallup poll, I was wondering what he was doing here……

  38. SoHope says:

    Obama drawing less half he did in chapel hill in 2008

  39. DrJay says:

    #39 They are busy carpeting the area with Obama signs.

  40. Bitterlaw says:

    When I went to the polls today, I showed my driver’s license. It felt good.

  41. DW says:

    41…I always do that too, and the black lady behind the table always gives me a smirkly look.

  42. MD says:

    6 – Daniels stated no flat out. His wife is also a huge problem.

    Portman is a very strong possibility and not nearly as boring as people think.

  43. MD says:

    If Badey wins Bitter, we are running you for POTUS in 2016.

  44. GF says:

    Only an elephant could do this; a jackass couldn’t possibly be so open-minded;

  45. GF says:

    MD, your thoughts on the Critz-Fraud dust-up? Looks like the unions went all-in for Critz.

  46. MD says:

    11 – I totally agree. For Meehan to lose to this clown it would have to be a Dem wave election. No one sees that happening. Even then it would be razor thin. The Dems would have to win 50+ seats for that to be in play. A better candidate might do something.

    Sestak looked into running by the way. He burned so many bridges in his own party over the last several years that he couldn’t field a campaign team. The rain maker in that area (a very good friend of mine who lives about a mile from Bitter) will NOT and never will help him raise money again.

    It takes a special person to be that hated within your own party when you basically are philosophically in synch with the party.

  47. pitchaboy says:

    As predicted by me yesterday Obama has stalled at 50 today in Gallup and will duly go down tomorrow.

  48. Bitterlaw says:

    MD – I am all choked up at your comment. Your faith in me to lose an election at the highest level is a great honor. Badey is a brilliant political strategist. He realized that the key to winning School Board elections is to talk about stem cell research and abortion.

  49. DrJay says:

    #45 That is incredible.

  50. DrJay says:

    Rubio has also emphatically said no FWIW.

    Just declare victory and move on.

    -This was a great comment!

  52. Bitterlaw says:

    Sestak never seemed to mention losing a star as an Admiral in his ads. As for the biggest, baddest lawyer in the state, my biggest wish is to see Patrick “I won’t enforce the voter id law” Murphy go down in flames.

  53. GF says:

    Did Joe actually lose his 4th star? I thought he was a Vice-Admiral holding a 4-star billet prior to being relieved. Either way, there is no question that he was forced out and despised in the service. I don’t know any East Coast officers that like him at all.

  54. singleNYCmike says:

    I wonder if Kelly/Senator Ayotte has followed my political failures as closely as I follow her success. I doubt it.

    -Actually, she mentioned a lawyer from PA who she went to law school with last night when we were having a cigarette after…….

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    GF – I though he lost a star but maybe he was not awarded a star that should have been his based upon his position.

    Patrick Murphy annoys me more. He used to campaign as a “paratrooper.” he was technically correct because he made the one required jump to be assigned as a JAG officer to serve with an Airborne unit. My brother-in-law did it, too. If I called him a paratrooper he would laugh.

  56. Ex-Mrs. NYCMike says:

    56- Like you could rock that at your age; hah! I should have tossed your NYC @$$ out ages ago! I’m going to Philly where real men live.

  57. GF says:

    I think that might have been it, Bitter. I seem to recall he was due for 4 but retired instead. Just the opposite of McCain; he was guaranteed a star, but chose to retire out as a Captain to get into politics at the behest of his buddies in the Senate (he served as a liaison for several years). Warner, I think, was the one who really pushed him.

  58. jason says:

    I showed my ID but the woman said you will only need to do that in November.

    So I voted for someone named George Bunu and will be back later.

  59. GPO says:

    Daniels stated no flat out. His wife is also a huge problem.

    Portman is a very strong possibility and not nearly as boring as people think.

    Comment by MD — April 24, 2012 @ 1:11 pm

    I think he only said no to the top spot

  60. NYCmike says:

    Didn’t the therapist say role-playing was good? I am playing the role you loved so much before we got married!!

  61. jason says:

    Daniels was interviewed yesterday and did not completely rule out the VP spot, dodge it by saying he could recommend a lot of good names.

  62. Ex-Mrs. NYCMike says:

    62- Only single girls with mommy issues like that kind of guy…wait a minute, then why am I going to Philly?

    Anyway, I met a guy from Texas, or was it Michigan? He can’t seem to make up his mind. Whatever, he told me to tell you to GFY!!!

  63. jason says:

    NYCMike got into Ayotte’s pants?

    Wow, does she have any friends?

  64. GF says:

    Shades of Maxwell…reminds me why I *love* this place.

    You must, you must
    Recall the 12th of August

    I hope that a special blog post is put up that day. Should easily break 1000 comments by lunch.

  65. MD says:

    21 – GF

    One of my college roommates lives in that CD. He is a staunch R but emailed me just yesterday that they are hearing the race is very tight. He expects Fraudmire to pull it out because some R’s re-registered to vote for him.

    Some in our party never, ever learn.

  66. MD says:

    54 – Murphy went nuclear in his ads. I was somewhat surprised to see Rendell support him since he is usually with the Clinton wing of the party. I guess MSNBC (Marxisn, Sure, NUFF, Be Cool) has co-opted him.

  67. Walt says:

    Jason-I have eaten at Yoders.

  68. MD says:

    61 – he said no to the Veep and actually went as far as to say that he would send a list of people more qualified than he to Romney.

    GPO – your history on candidates getting in or out of an election isn’t very good.

  69. MD says:

    Everyone thinks I am a bad guy. I get weepy thinking about August 12th! I may have to re-post the Philly A-Hole bible.

  70. Walt says:

    Was out running errands and listening to the John Gibson radio show on Fox News Talk Radio.

    He had a young conservative, anti-Obammer call in and say he voted in the primary, bemoaned the stupidily of his generation voting lock step for Obammer.
    I think he was from Pa or NJ?
    Was that OUR Brandon?

  71. MD says:

    I love you guys! So emotional…..

    535.Well its time for me to bid everyone here farewell. I have been thinking about this for some time now, as I like to see the glass half full and believe that our best days are still ahead of us, and that we will fix what needs to be fix, right the ship and continue the journey. Some actually posted today that they knew we would get sold out on Obamacare at the Supreme Court, how could they know that? Unknown.

    But mostly I tired of the nonsense of a couple of posters. Now most folks here are great. But a couple can not help themselves with their smarmy and caustic comments.

    Now my brain says, understand they live in a cesspool where crime is rampant and race violence seems to be spiraling out of control. It pervades everything, hell their QB for their beloved football team is a damn convicted felon who did time in the joint. If you had your job handed to an affirmative action candidate or you were stuck in a dead end job defending lawsuits against your employer for contract entered into and wont pay on just cuz the time delay is worth money, that would grind on ya for sure.

    All that is true, and they have my pity. But the truth is I dont want to listen to their ad hom attacks. They are both philly @ssholes, and is it any wonder that such a place populated with such @ssholes could start pelting Santa Claus with snowballs. Its probably a miracle Santa got out alive.

    So I am therefore bidding all of you a fond farewell. I dont intend to return. Enjoy the bitter rhythmic chants of “No Deal” or whatever it will be next time. Perhaps aluminum bats is the correct answer to some as yet unasked trivia question. Perhaps I will run into some of the rest of you somewhere else on the internet. I wont be that hard to find I use my real name.

    Lets kick enough Democrats to the curb to make some real fundamental change in this great country. I am with you in spirit on that task. Thanks for the chance to post here Dave. Bye.

    I loved Bitter’s instant response. I was driving to the shore when it happened and couldn’t respond until a bit later:

    541.Gary – see ya. Since you’re leaving, I will point out that Josh Hamilton is a drug addict who has more human blood on his hands than Vick. Your pathetic farewell is the ultimate self-declaration of victory in every argument. I will not miss your gloating over a team with no real success. As for living in a Northeast City, you couldn’t handle it. Stay in your beloved, sheltered cocoon of Texas. The real world is more interesting.

    According to Tim V it was OK for Gary to tell me to GFY but when I brought his wife into it, that was over the line. It set Gary off on the most classic rant ever here. It won’t be topped:

    571.I won’t GFY. Maybe I will offer myself to your wife. Then she understand what it is like to be with a real man.

  81. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    @82 sounds like a long brewing thing

  82. MD says:

    Art – Gary had(s) a way of just shouting at you on line. He would bold posts and type JUST WATCH! quite often. The odd thing is that I only had a couple of minor dust ups with him. He and Bitter would engage in long arguments on a lot of different topics. He was never willing to hear another point of view.

    For example, I supported the spirit of the AZ immigration law. I have right leaning lawyer friend in DC who felt the same way but said the meat of the bill will be struck down due to jurisdiction. Gary went on a rant about how that was wrong but provided no logic as to why. He was always on the offensive about Philadelphia as well. I like Texas but there are some pretty nasty places in Houston, Dallas and San Antonio to be certain. Gary made it out like we were having daily race riots here.

    Bitter basically set him up for me. The post is beautiful because it pretty much containted everything. In his mind, I am fairly certain he thought Bitter and I would somehow be banned after the community rose up against us. The opposite happened and he has become the longest running joke here.

    After the Phils were eliminated from the playoffs, he pulled the ultimate douchelike move of coming back for a few posts to rub it in. We didn’t hear from him after the Rangers failed to win the WS despite being 1 strike away twice.

    I think that about sum it up, thanks for the recap

  88. jason says:

    I have so many fights under my belt I can’t recall if Gary was one of them. But since he was a fellow Texan at the time I thought he was ok.

    Was he from Ron Paul’s district? That would drive anybody a little crazy.

    “In an interview with “Clerks” director Kevin Smith, Lovitz, a registered Democrat who voted for Obama in 2008, bashed the president for his class warfare rhetoric and the notion that the wealthy don’t pay their fair share in taxes.”

    I’m not linking due to strong language… drudge has a link to daily caller.

    ” I am hoping and praying ooo will not use the waiver clause to buy votes.”

    From what I know of the man, I don’t think he would go that low.

    Still waiting for the lowdown on skyqueen….

  116. Phil says:

    They have the Sky Queen story up over at Hot Air. Seems she must have been, uh, a little desperate for campaign funds.

    SQ – 108

    I have been saying here for a long time that Obama has been abusing his EO’s and basically sidestepping the Constitution. It has been a gradual process and he now seems ready to kick it into high gear. The man simply doesn’t respect the checks and balances in our system. He is a danger.

    Funny, 6 years ago you would find his association with the NPS party all over the internet. Now? Nope. All gone.

    It is scary and it is a real worry. He attacks the Supreme Court and bypasses Congress on a regular basis now. Hey, why worry?

  118. Bitterlaw says:

    MD – I smile every time. Who knew that one post would leave such an impression. I don’t know if Dave will mark Maxwell Day because I think that he probably sits in his house late at night thinking, “I used to have a nice blog. I won a Mobbie Award. What happened? Where did it all go wrong?”

  119. Phil says:

    “He (Obama) is a danger”

    I’ve been saying this for three years. He is the first president to absolutely loathe the US Constitution. FDR just bent it. Obama totally hates it because it keeps getting in his way.

    That is what makes the man dangerous.

    Just wait until he gets past the election. We aint seen nothing yet.

  120. Phil says:

    Watch Obama’s tantrum this summer when Obamacare is declared unconstitutional.

    I can’t wait.

  121. SusyQue says:

    #120…MD…If ooo is overriding the Constitution and/or the Congress, can’t he be impeached?

    His oath: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

  122. MD says:

    Phil – I honestly think they will try to find a way around the ruling. After all, the supreme court, as Obama liked to remind us wasn’t “elected”.

    Wait until Zimmerman gets off. This country is a powder keg waiting to explode.

  123. NYCmike says:

    “Watch Obama’s tantrum this summer when Obamacare is declared unconstitutional.”

    -If that happens, we’ll even let Washington DC, home of the Supreme Court, be the OFFICIAL CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE! (For a day!)

  124. NYCmike says:

    And tell London the Olympics suck, it will rain for 3 straight weeks!

  125. Phil says:

    It takes two thirds of the senate to remove a President. Zero knows that isn’t politically practical.

    He’ll do whatever the hell he wants.

  126. SusyQue says:

    If…ooo…wins the election…there may be big trouble ahead for him, if you know what I am saying. Too many people have been hurt financially and other ways for the last 3+ years.

  127. MD says:

    Obama is basically lighting the fuses with his rhetoric. That is nothing new. “they bring knives, we bring guns”.

  128. NYCmike says:

    #129 – stick to Scripture, leave the conspiracy stuff to Emerica.

  129. SusyQue says:

    128…”He’ll do whatever the hell he wants.”
    There must be a way to stop him.

  130. NYCmike says:

    Ron and Rand Paul will both support Mitt Romney in the race for President of the United States.

  131. MD says:

    We have an office in London and almost everyone is going to leave while the olympics are going on. This is an event we don’t want anymore.

  132. MD says:

    131 – No reason for concern or worry.

  133. singleNYCmike says:

    #134 – if all the Brits leave London for a couple of weeks, it might be worth taking a trip there. The women will be better looking!

  134. DrJay says:

    On the Arizona immigration law, Kagan has recused herself… how is that decision likely to go down?

  135. SusyQue says:

    #132…Read Psalm 109:8
    “Let his days be few; and let another take his office and charge.”

  136. NYCmike says:

    #137 – will this be the wedge with Hispanic voters?

  137. SusyQue says:

    #131…Read post #138.

  138. MD says:

    137 – Doc

    2 things on this:

    1. It is an indirect way to try and pressure Thomas to recuse himself from the healthcare bill.

    2. The court will still rule against the AZ law. It is an issue of jurisdiction. I don’t think the Supreme Court will factor in whether or not the feds are doing their job on the issue. They aren’t btw. That is very obvious. So, Kagan knows her side will still win by at least a 6 to 2 margin. No risk for her at all.

  139. NYCmike says:

    #138 – that’s better SusyQue. How do you feel, more relaxed now? That’s good, now just tilt your head back and swallow this pill, no, don’t fret, it will make everything feel wonderful……

  140. MD says:

    I’ll get to the scripture right after my Satanic meeting ends tonight.

    But I just can’t kill the beast!

  141. DrJay says:

    #141 I was wondering about that, since she did not recuse herself on health care.

  142. SusyQue says:

    #130…MD…Maybe it’s “they” bring guns:
    April 22 – As we recently reported, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), an agency that says its main purpose now is to thwart “homegrown terrorism,” has awarded a contract to ammunition manufacturer ATK for acquiring 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammo.

    The Arizona law will go down. The Supremacy Clause actually means what it says. The correct Constitutional Decision is to strike it down. Sorry. That’s the way it is.

    As for Obama and the COnstitution, all Presidents try to push the limits of their power. All of them. He’s just really, really obvious about it.

  146. DW says:

    80 is good news. Don’t forget that Maffei formerly held this seat, so he has all the name recognition of an incumbant. Some in that district may not even be aware that he lost in 2010.

    This is a seat that most of the usual suspects have as Lean D.

    I wonder if the brilliant Delaware Republican Primary voters who gave us COD will now give us Newt as their winner. Discuss.

    It will blow up if the verdict is ANYTHING less than the death penalty–by firing squad.

    Can Obama Make Up His Jewish Losses?

    In today’s Daily Beast, Michael Tomasky laments the fact that President Obama is running far behind his 2008 numbers with American Jewish voters. Given the unwillingness of most liberals to come to grips with the fact that far fewer Jewish voters are going to vote for the president this time around, such an acknowledgement is refreshing. Realizing that Obama’s current poll numbers with Jews show him 16 points behind the 78 percent he won in 2008, Tomasky admits it will be hard for him to make up that ground even if most Jews are not in love with the Republican option.
