Re: “Roberts Drops out of Congressional Race

I've seen Vaughn on TV; he is clean and eloquent.

Re: “A City Divided or a City Apathetic

Maryanne lost about 21 precincts, not just one. For an incumbent that's a pretty bad performance. She also did not get the endorsements of BCA and the Police Union. If you contrast the combined challenger votes with the incumbent votes, she lost 20 more precincts than she lost in 2005. The bloom is off the rose to say the least. You'll also notice that the precincts where Litster and Baumbach campaigned is where they won. I give you precincts 82 and 99.
The conservatives lost because conservative precincts, like 93 and 94 only had a ~16% turnout of about 6000 potential voters (because the City tampered with poll location?), whereas in Shealy and Eberle's north-end precincts turnout exceeded 30%.

Re: “Read Pam Lowe's Charges Against Transportation Department

Who does Hansen think he's kidding? He's as corrupt as Otter.
Notice how the Democrats used this as blackmail to force Otter to appoint Democrat, Langhorst. Follow the bouncing ball. The Democrats and the establishment Republicans are in bed together. Kick all the RINO bums and the Democrats out! This is an outrage.

Re: “Minnick to Vote No on House Health Care Bill

I'm thinking about running against Minnick in the primaries. He's a disgrace, pandering to the Republicans and damaging Obama. Or, is Obama just damaging himself? Minnick is an ideologue, like Sali.

Re: “City Council 4

Oh, and Bisterfelt currently has a mobile home on his land and does not have the appropriate permitting for it. To say that he is clean is a bit of a stretch. I'd say he's been working the system to have his illegal mobile home overlooked. Isn't there just a bit too much cronyism in Boise politics? Vern Bisterfeldt is a crony's crony a la crony.

Re: “Some Boise Voters Get Absentee Requests

Baumbach really has all the facts. There has never been a better informed city-council candidate. It's too bad that the Democrat Party has it in for him. He really raises the quality of debate.

Re: “Two Council Candidates Drop Out

-every major Democrat endorsement: no real Republicans support him at all. he's also endorsed by Democracy for America. Google it.
-can TJ release his records so we can see whether he actually worked for NASA, like he keeps saying?
-TJ is BIG corporation and BIG government, look at his record. He's never touched a shovel in his life.
-can he substantiate that he saved a BILLION dollars or is that just pie in the sky?
-can TJ take a position on issues instead of promoting hope and change? you can keep the change.
-why did TJ work the Ada County Republican booth? will he continue to misrepresent himself throughout his campaign? I don't think that he should sacrifice honesty by posing as a Republican, when he is a liberal Democrat.
-what do TJ's supporters think of him pretending to be a Republican at the fair?
-if you don't want more of the same, don't vote for the guy endorsed by the entire Democrat city council.
