  •  Don't underestimate McConnell (3+ / 0-)

    He's a turd, but he knows how to keep winning elections, despite NEVER having been popular in the state. I received my yardsign for Alison Lundergan Grimes, yesterday and I have high hopes. It's been a LOOONG time since the Turtle has been in a close race.

    But he has more money to spend than a Walmart-heir and knows how to drown opponents in negative ads. When his ads outnumber yours 10-1, tons of people go to the polls not even knowing who McConnell's opponent is!

    And, YES, the ACA is working in KY as KYnect . But tons of people don't know that KYnect IS "Obamacare." If they did, they might refuse to sign up! McConnell's decision to talk "Obamacare" nonstop could work for him--especially if he refuses to debate Grimes.

    He's beatable, but people need to quit talking like it will be easy. If it were, we'd have gotten rid of him back when Wendell Ford (D-KY) was still KY's senior senator.

      I came across sounding like that for sure , I should have been more specific and mentioned " IN THE FUTURE "  

       IMO a lot of these "term limits" GOP will be carried out of congress in coffins , they are not going any where
