TIME FOR CONSERVATIVES TO SHOW OBAMA HE CAN LOSE
|Move America Forward|
Obamas poll numbers have slipped, his presidential job approval ratings are at their lowest point in his entire administration, and support for his government-run health care plan is dropping like a rock. Conservatives, for the first time since Obama took office, not only have an opportunity to push back, but they now have the momentum to do so.
Because California Democrat Rep. Ellen Tauscher took a position in the Obama administration, California has a special election very soon, September 1st. Because of the unusual way election laws work in California, if the front running Democrat does not get 50% or more of the vote, there will be a runoff between that candidate, most likely liberal John Garamendi, and the top Republican candidate. If he gets 50% now, there wont even be a run-off and he immediately goes to Washington to vote for everything Obama wants.
This seat in Congress was once held by conservative Republican Bill Baker a strong supporter of our military. Even Tauscher, who was liberal on many domestic issues, was more moderate on national security issues because the 10th District includes Travis Air Force Base, a key airlift for the war on terror. So this is a district where we have a chance. But, we wont have a chance if we dont even have a run-off election where the conservative candidate would be on equal footing and have a fighting chance of taking the 10th district away from the Democrats.
A vote for either of the major Republican candidates works because it would deny the 50% to the liberal front-runner. We just need to get ALL of their supporters to vote and not sit home on Election Day.

Oh heck yeah, what are the chances of the conservatives’ winning??
You have a point though.
What with ACORN, illegal aliens voting, and the other assorted voter fraud, it's nigh on to impossible for conservatives to win if something isn't done about all the illegal activity.
But now that Obama has given two billion for offshore drilling (here at home? NO) to Soros to drill off the shore of Brazil, I'm sure he owes another voter fraud election to The King of The World.
ZIP,the only way this will be won is by war/force.It’s pretty sad it’s come down to this but it will happen.You can smell it in the air!
Well that’s a good point, but I don’t live in California so I was wondering on their actual chances of winning (polling, make-up of district..ect)?
Keep pushing the Waterloo narrative. It’s working.
The Left can’t stand seeing their messiah fail and are turning against each other.
Good news, Obama is on the ropes.
2010=1994 all over again.
2012=1980 all over again.
Garamendi has Commanding Lead in 10th Congressional District Race
Anything can happen but based only on THIS I wouldn’t hold my breath...
What on earth is going on here? You've got two Republican candidates fighting against a single "democrat" in the primaries?
Somebody please explain to me how splitting the vote in a party helps defeat the other party, whose vote is not "splitten."
I must be missing something here....
“He is trying to cleverly disguise his liberal record. Because he knows the people of CD 10 are conservative, watch him don this rancher outfit for a campaign commercial. “
I hope people are seeing through the act of liberals dressing up in outfits to be pretend-conservatives.
“Garamendi doesnt even live in the district.”
That poll ignored the Republicans, and also the key point is that if he is at 31% then there WILL be a runoff.
This is ALL about getting the best person into the RUNOFF.
Leftists/liberals/democrats are a wierd bunch.
They have no problem squishing themselves in anywhere they think they can lie, cheat, steal and fraud into
But being as two gopers want to run, if they keep the dem from getting the 51%, hopefully one of the repubs will bow out and back the other one.

“The poll ignored the Republicans”
I saw at least one Republican named in the poll. I believe it showed him at 5%. Harmer? Can’t remember about the other one.
In any case, I know a less-than-50% showing by any candidate brings a runoff.
With that many candidates it isn’t surprising the vote is so split.
Here’s the thing: I was responding to a request by a FReeper for any information on the race. He got zip, zero, nada in reply. I searched and found this poll.
Bottom line: this source indicates no conservative groundswell. This guy is touting his “Democratness” and leading (by this source). When will people wake up to what Pelosi, Reid, Obama and the Dems are trying to do to this once great nation? I don’t know.
Meanwhile, I said anything can happen.
