Sununu For EC - Lynch, Hollingworth Should End Political Tap Dance and Stop Salem Toll Booth

EXETER – Today, Chris Sununu, Republican candidate for New Hampshire’s District 3 Executive Council seat, issued the following statement:
“One thing is clear – as Governor, John Lynch has the power to stop the NH DOT’s pursuit of a Salem toll booth, but instead he is surrendering authority to state bureaucrats on a critical issue for New Hampshire’s commuters and small businesses.
“Governor Lynch first allowed the DOT to apply for a toll booth in Salem, while suggesting he would study the issue.  Now, the Governor says that he’s opposed to the toll booth, but is making no effort to instruct his own DOT commissioner to abandon the proposal.  At every level, the Governor’s position makes no sense. John Lynch needs to end this political tap dance, and stop the toll booth.
“Bev Hollingworth’s role as an Executive Councilor is to provide a check on the Governor’s powers and policies.  But, she has been completely silent on the issue of the Salem toll booth, which will choke off a major economic artery to the southern tier, disrupt commerce, and harm small businesses and commuters. Hollingworth is failing in her job, and failing her constituents who desperately want to be heard.
“Bev Hollingworth and John Lynch are more interested in avoiding responsibility than solving problems.  That is unacceptable.
“As an Executive Councilor, I will not be silent on issues or avoid responsibility.  Voters will know where I stand, and I will make sure that their voice is heard throughout the State House.”

AFP - November is Coming 

Dear Friend,

With the crucial House health care vote most likely coming in 72 hours, I'm asking you to take a new step.

Go to and sign a new petition - which tells your member of Congress that if he or she votes YES on the health care takeover, you will vote NO on them in November.

Please send your message right now.

We've got to make sure in these potential final hours before the House vote that every member of Congress knows that tens of thousands of folks back home will vote NO on the Congressman if he or she votes YES on taking away our health care rights.

Every single member of the House of Representatives is up for election this November. 

They need to know that if they ram this health care takeover through - with all the dirty deals, all the big spending and new debt, all the new government bureaucracy, all the parliamentary tricks - then Americans will vote them out in November. 

This petition is the clearest way to send this vital message.

Let's keep up the pressure!  We are winning with the American people.


PS:  Out across America, your protests, rallies and Hands Off My Health Care efforts continue. Check out our blog for highlights.

Sign this petition now and forward it to your friends and family!

NetRight Daily: New Polls on Democrat Health Care Votes 

ALG Releases New Poll on Democrat Health Care Votes:  Despite the mainstream media's attempts to downplay the national backlash against government-run health care, the word is out and the American people are clearly fed up with Barack Obama's endless attempts to force "ObamaCare" down their throats.

Coburn Puts Out Warning to House Democrats:  If you voted no and you vote yes, and you lose your election, and you think any nomination to a federal position isn't going to be held in the Senate, I've got news for you. It's going to be held.

The Sestak Scandal:  This Is Draining the Swamp?:  In addition to promising an end to Republicans' out-of-control spending, Democrats vowed to "drain the swamp" of corruption in Washington D.C. prior to winning their Congressional majorities in 2006. Of course that was just an entrée for the real "hope and change" to come, as Barack Obama stormed to victory in the presidential election two years later promising to "change Washington" – and cut taxes for a majority of Americans.

Small Government Advocates Must Not Lose Sight of EPA Ambitions:  Even as the public remains understandably preoccupied with President Obama's proposed government takeover of healthcare, it is imperative for free market activists to remain vigilant against environmental extremism.

CHQ - Conservative Activists Overwhelm Colorado's Caucuses

Outsiders win big in Colorado's caucuses
Denver Daily News - Tuesday's Colorado caucuses followed the overwhelming trend witnessed across America as the state's voters sent a message to the establishments of both the Democrats and Republicans:  you're not going to choose our candidates for us.  Grassroots citizens spoke out against a sitting U.S. Senator (Democrat Michael Bennett) and the national GOP-backed candidate (U.S. Senate contender Jane Norton), giving their 'challengers' an excellent chance to prevail in the August Colorado primary.

Principles and Heresies: Frank S. Meyer and the Shaping of the American Conservative Movement, by Kevin J. Smant (ISI, 425 pp., $29.95)

"For fifty years, most American conservatives have stood for three basic propositions: that American foreign policy should seek to end totalitarian regimes; that the domestic functions of government, and especially of the federal government, should be strictly limited; and that the moral precepts traditionally associated with Christianity (sometimes the formulation includes Judaism as well) should be upheld."

LA Times suddenly wary of judicial activism and spouses
Hot Air (Ed Morrissey) - "I really wish the media would get its story straight on spouses and activism. When Bill Clinton ran for President, the media scolded people who began questioning whether Hillary Clinton would use her influence to shape policy in the White House.

"Suddenly, though, the LA Times and Kathleen Hennessey have a problem with activist wives. Hennessey profiles Virginia 'Ginny' Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and speculates throughout the article that Thomas' work as an activist with Liberty Central may cross lines of judicial objectivity."

Toobin defended Mrs. Thomas' grassroots conservative work."
