ran 3.4 miles
It’s been over two weeks since our president proposed his American Jobs Act, a bill with a $447 billion price tag on the backs of taxpayers. It is yet another stimulus package serving as one more ingredient in Barack Obama’s stew that is tasteless and hard to swallow. Even the Democrat-led Senate is reluctant to pass Barack Obama’s jobs bill. That is a statement that demands many questions on leadership. It is a given that the Republican-led House only wants to poke at this thing with a ten-foot pole, but the left appears to be imploding under Barack Obama.

Looking back at the mid-term elections, when so many liberal members of Congress were fired by American voters, based on their support of our president’s actions, one can only wonder how many Democrats are now willing to stand in the front lines to defend their president and quite possibly sacrifice their careers in Washington D.C. while the leader of their party sneaks off to Timbuktu for another extravagant vacation on our ticket.

On a lighter note, I have been compiling stats and facts about each individual state to use as a tool for when the 2012 presidential election finally arrives. Quick facts like how many electoral votes each state has, what their presidential voting history is, who their Congressmen and women are, stuff like that. So, here are some facts about the state of Tennessee:
  • Tennessee was the sixteenth state to join the union on June 1, 1796, seven years before Ohio and four years after Kentucky.
  • Population, as of 2010, is 6,346,105.
  • Senators are Lamar Alexander (R) and Bob Corker (R).
  • Representatives are Phil Roe (R), John Duncan (R), Chuck Fleischmann (R), Scott DesJarlais (R), Jim Cooper (D), Diane Black (R), Marsha Blackburn (R), Stephen Fincher (R) and Steve Cohen (D).
  • Tennessee has eleven electoral votes. Historically, the state voted almost exclusively blue from Reconstruction until after World War II. Since the 1950s Tennessee has trended red with few exceptions. Since 1928 Tennessee has chosen the winning candidate in every election except for 1960 and 2008. John McCain defeated Barack Obama 57% to 42% in 2008.
892.7 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day33.
