The Connecticut Dumbocrats reportedly are not taking any chances and are already lining up a replacement for CT AG Richard Blumenthal. And why not? It’s what they do best. Let’s see. Their first choice couldn’t remember the truth … and their second choice stretched the truth. Now, reportedly, their third choice is the very man who told all of us we could keep our insurance and our doctor if we passed the Health Care Bill … ummm … also untrue.
Here’s the scorecard on the Dumbocrats … or maybe we should call them. Pinnochiocrats.
- First there was Dodd and his most amazing adventure with the stimulus bill. Remember when he told us he had no idea how the AIG bonuses got into the Stimulus Bill?
- The, of course, we have Dick Blumenthal, the Vietnam war veteran. Oh wait. He’s not. What makes this so incredibly shameful of course is not that he becomes just one more Viet Nam pretender but that it comes two days before the return of the CTANG 192nd Military Police battalions return after a real year in Iraq.
- Now the latest has Chris Murphy stepping into Blumenthal’s shows as the Dumbo’s third choice. This would be the same Chris Murphy that told us on our radio show last year that if you liked your Doc and Insurance company, why, you could keep them, a lie that not only we blew up, but so did President Obama in February.
Yet despite this, pollsters say the Dumbocreats should still win the seat. This of course speaks volumes about Connecticut voters. Anyone but a Republican. Take heart GOP. Sooner or later they have to run out of Dumbocrats.
In early January we polled Congressman Chris Murphy against Rob Simmons and Linda McMahon and he led each of them by seven points. Almost half of the voters in the state said they had no opinion of Murphy personally so he functioned basically as a generic Democratic candidate. If the nominee ends up being someone of comparable quality- or Murphy himself- the party will continue to be favored in the race although certainly not by the stratospheric kind of numbers that Blumenthal was.
