Pro-Obamacare Senator Blanche Lincoln Down 65-27 in Arkansas Senate Race
Gateway Pundit ^ | 8-20-10 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 08/20/2010 10:18:30 AM PDT by Justaham

Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Arkansas) is trailing her Republican opponent John Boozman in Arkansas by 38 points.

Rasmussen reported:

Support for incumbent Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln has now fallen to its lowest level yet as Republican John Boozman remains on track to shift Arkansas’ Senate seat to the GOP column.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Arkansas shows Boozman capturing 65% of the vote, while Lincoln earns 27% support. Four percent (4%) like some other candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are not sure.

Boozman has been ahead in this race for months. In July, he posted a 60% to 35% lead. In surveys since he won the Republican Primary in May, Boozman has earned 60% to 66% of the vote in matchups with Lincoln, who in turn has picked up 28% to 35% support.

Let’s hope that Obamacare vote was worth it. It would be interesting to discover what goodies were promised this democrat for her vote to nationalize health care. Good-bye, Blanche.

Turns out Bill Clinton was wrong when he told congressional democrats
that voting for Obama care was the secret to winning the 2010 midterms.

If the Republicans take control of Congress, they should do everything in their power to see that those Democrats that were voted out of office will never hold a job in Washington.

These people should be banned from any government-related job for life.

What they should do is bring every chairperson of every committee up on Ethics charges. And not let up.

Don't give them any freakin' ideas, people!! In 2008, when sitting Sen Toricelli was polling behind the Republican challenger in NJ (due to a - get this- "ethics controversy"), he dropped out. Unfortunately for the Dems, it was after the explicit deadline for another candidate to be added to the ballot. The Dems aded Frank Lautenberg anyway. Unfortunately for the Rule of Law, the NJ Supreme Court went along with it. Lautenberg won.

Same thing happened in 2000 in Missouri, when sitting Gov Carnahan died (plane crash) just before the election. His wife was allowed to take his place, despite election law. She won.

There is no shortage of recent election recounts where the recounts did not finish until the Dem was ahead, and then the counts stopped immediately. Washington, Ohio, Florida, Minnesota, etc.

Never, NEVER forget that they do not have to follow the Rules!! The power-hungry do NOT give up power willingly... and the Hard Left is in charge, and hungrier than anyone we've ever seen in this country.

YES! Getting elected is just step one - it's going after the commies hard and often.

It is the battle of the Patriot vs. the commie.

Welcome to my Health Care Resources web page. I hope you will find this information useful.

I believe one of the most important things we can do to help rebuild our economy and right our long-term fiscal imbalance is to fix our broken health care system.

SPRINGDALE, AR — Republican US Senate Candidate Jim Holt called Senator Blanche Lincoln’s announcement today that she would be voting against the Healthcare Reconciliation Bill a “fraud” and a “Fig Leaf” to cover up her crucial 60th vote to proceed with Obama Care. Holt said:

“With a single vote she has divided our Nation right down the middle and we are poised below an avalanche that can only be stopped if we act now. Lincoln’s comment that the House Package ‘includes matter unrelated to health care’ is imbecilic. The package that the Senate originally sent back to the house was full of this ‘unrelated matter.’ The Federal Government is bound by article one section nine of the Constitution to not favor one state above another.

Blanche Lincoln lit the match that burned the Constitution. Her crucial 60th vote for cloture last December sent a clear and undeniable message to the American people that she will continue to adhere to Washington’s liberal agenda despite what the voters in Arkansas want, or what the supreme law of the land says.

Same thing happened in 2000 in Missouri, when sitting Gov Carnahan died (plane crash) just before the election. His wife was allowed to take his place, despite election law. She won.

Actually, Mel Carnahan remained on the ballot. Shortly after the plane crash, new Gov. Roger Wilson announced that if Carnahan was elected, he would name his widow as Senator.

In the two weeks following Carnahans death, there was really no campaigning. But there was a lot of sympathy and a highly publicized funeral, of course. Ashcroft lost by about 2%, or 50,000 votes. It was all done legally, but the sympathy factor had a whole lot to do with it.

Two years later, after we had discovered that Jean Carnahan was slightly dumber than a box of rocks, she was defeated by Jim Talent in the special election.

and of course the legacy continues with more little Carnahans looking to feed at the public trough. It is amazing how many little leftists one family of school teachers can begat.

A waste of money either way though.

Right you are! I remember that awful U.S. Senate election in Missouri in 2000. They were interviewing one dingbat (whose gender I will refuse to identify) who said its vote was to show one coworker who told it that being a U.S. Senator could be a difficult job and just because someone was married to someone who was qualified didn't make them qualified. It took said remark as a sexist put-down of women and voted for the box of rocks just to show him.

She should call “Dandy Dale” Bumpers out of retirement to save her seat. People in AR have never repudiated Bumpers though they did Clinton twice.

I know a person (state employee) who voted for Carnahan because his (the dead guy's) opponent on the ballot had once voted against a COLA raise for state employees. He said his vote was a gesture of contempt, a way to say,"See? I think a dead guy would be an improvement over you." (But I don't doubt that most of the Carnahan voters did so out of sympathy for his widow.)

They should be tried for sedition and treason with immediate punishment after the verdict. This will reduce the likelihood another government coup attempt for the next couple of decades.
