Day527 Tuesday 02/07/12

ran 2.4 miles
It is still very early but Rick Santorum is leading by double digits in all three states' races right now (8:47 p.m. here in Louisiana). Colorado, Missouri, and Minnesota. Gingrich has the two-spot in Colorado and Missouri, and Paul is second in Minnesota. Romney is suffering third in all three states. Didn’t see that coming, but I like it. Still very early, though.

One story I wanted to point out tonight was the contrast of California's beloved Nancy Pelosi (District 8) to a quote from ex-Representative Kathy Dahlkemper (D-Penn). Dahlkemper was one of the many 2010 midterm election Representatives who was fired by her district for supporting Barack Obama’s health care plan, stimulus package, and all together generally unapproved actions.

As quoted by Dahlkemper:

“I would have never voted for the final version of the bill if I expected the Obama administration to force Catholic hospitals and Catholic colleges and universities to pay for contraception.”


“We worked hard to prevent abortion funding in health care and to include clear conscience protections for those with moral objections to abortion and contraceptive devices that cause abortion. I trust that the president will honor the commitment he made to those of us who supported final passage.”

In contrast, what was it Nancy Pelosi had said?

“Let’s pass the bill so we can see what’s in it.”

This is just the beginning of surprises to come.

I have to believe that unemployment numbers are as easy to manipulate as presidential approval numbers because I cannot wrap my head around the polls I read when they say that Barack Obama has 50% of America convinced that he is working in our best interests.

468.3 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day162.
