NRSC - As His Fellow Democrats Denounce Largest Tax Hike In American History, Why Is Paul Hodes Standing With Obama-Pelosi Economic Agenda? 

WASHINGTONWith national unemployment hovering near 10 percent, a growing number of Democrats are abandoning embattled liberal U.S. Representative Paul Hodes (D-NH) and their Washington leaders as the Obama Administration prepares to allow for the largest job-killing tax increase in American history.

Politico reports today that, “[D]emocrats are pressuring Speaker Nancy Pelosi to extend Bush-era income tax rates for all brackets.” Democrat Representatives Jim Matheson (D-UT), Glenn Nye (D-VA), Melissa Bean (D-IL), and Gary Peters (D-MI) have voiced their strong opposition to the massive tax hike in a letter addressed to their Democrat leadership arguing that “this is not the time to jeopardize further growth.”

Additionally, U.S. Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Jim Webb (D-VA) came forward today to join the expanding chorus of Democrats speaking out against the President’s tax increase.

“Congressman Hodes’ support for tax hikes on employers only underscores how painfully out-of-touch he is with voters in the Granite State. While a growing number of his Democrat colleagues continue to denounce Nancy Pelosi’s plans to increase taxes for families and small businesses in the midst of a recession, Hodes is still standing with his out-of-touch party leaders in Washington instead of taxpayers in New Hampshire,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokeswoman Amber Marchand. “In just 50 days, Granite State voters will undoubtedly hold Hodes accountable for his reckless, job-killing economic agenda when they elect a Republican U.S. Senator.”

As a reminder, U.S. Representatives Charlie Melancon (D-LA) and Brad Ellsworth (D-IN); U.S. Senate hopefuls Robin Carnahan (D-MO) and Jack Conway (D-KY); and U.S. Senators Kent Conrad (D-ND), Ben Nelson (D-NE), and Evan Bayh (D-IN) are already on the growing list of Democrats opposed to Hodes’ efforts to raise taxes by repealing any of the 2001 and 2003 tax relief measures.

CHQ Endorses Ovide Lamontagne in NH Senate Primary on September 14

CHQ endorses Christine O'Donnell in Delaware Senate primary on September 14 -- CHQ writes that Christine O'Donnell will be a reliable constitutional conservative vote in the U.S. Senate, while her opponent, 'ruling-class' lifelong politician and RINO Mike Castle is part of the Republican wing that gave us President Obama and Democratic majorities in both chambers of Congress, where oddball -- let's be frank -- just plain weird and whacky Democrats are the darlings of the liberal establishment.

Why the 'Ruling Class' is terrified of Delaware's Christine O'Donnell
American Spectator -- You wouldn't perceive her as a threat by merely looking at her, but the powers that be in the Republican Party are sure treating Delaware's Christine O'Donnell as if she's a threat to their wellbeing.  Jeffrey Lord explains why O'Donnell is viewed as so dangerous by the 'Ruling Class.' It's basically because she's never showed any interest in being 'one of them,' so her candidacy instantly represents a threat to their power.

In New Hampshire, principled beliefs triumph over D.C. dictates in favor of Lamontagne
Union Leader -- Publisher Joseph McQuaid on tomorrow's New Hampshire GOP primary writes that establishment favorite Kelly Ayotte's close ties with figures in the national Republican Party won't help her against conservative Ovide Lamontagne. New Hampshire voters are realizing that Lamontagne is the true conservative in the race.  McQuaid points out that even the National Right to Life has recognized its error in endorsing Ayotte too quickly, and the truth is starting to work against her in favor of Lamontagne.

First Living Recipient to Receive Medal Of Honor From Afghanistan/Iraq
All I can say, it is about time that a living recipient has been awarded the Medal Of Honor for serving our country so valiantly in Afghanistan and/or Iraq
The first living recipient to receive the Medal Of Honor since the Vietnam War is Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta, he was an Army specialist in Afghanistan when he performed actions on the battlefield that were above and beyond the call of duty.  Specialist Giunta put his life on the line to save his fellow soldiers when he and fellow paratroopers were ambushed by the Taliban in 2007. Staff Sergeant Giunta recently received a personal call from President Obama and was informed that he would receive the Medal Of Honor.

Horn For Congress - Please Vote for Jennifer Horn on Tuesday, September 14th

Dear Friends,

Tomorrow is Primary day and I am asking for your vote.

As I have traveled across the 2nd District, I've met thousands of Granite Staters who feel as I do that we live in the greatest nation on earth.  The strength of a nation is measured not by her politicians, but by her people, and the American people are strong.

As your Congresswoman, I promise:
  1. Before every vote I will ask: is this Constitutional, is it right for New Hampshire, is it right for American?
  2. I will read the bill.
  3. I will listen to you.
  4. I will be a loud, principled voice for New Hampshire.
  5. I will not back down.
It is time to move our nation forward.  It is time to put an end to the reign of career politicians and Washington insiders and send new leadership and a new energy to represent us.

As a small business owner, radio talk show host and mother of 5 children, I understand how the failed policies of Washington hurt real people every day. Washington has become arrogant and disconnected. We can do better.

We must return to our founding principles:

-         Limited government
-         Limited spending
-         Personal responsibility

We must stand together now and preserve for our children and our children's children the America of unlimited opportunity that our parents passed down to us.

That is why I am running.  That is why I am asking for your vote.


Union Leader Primary Endorsements

U.S. House, 2nd District: Jennifer Horn. If any candidate can claim the Tea Party mantle this year, it is Jennifer Horn. She is a passionate advocate of conservative ideals. We would love to see her in Washington giving grief not only to the Obama administration, but also to her own party's leadership.

GOP contenders clash over experience
By Karen Langley
Concord Monitor, 09/12/2010

Charlie Bass, Jennifer Horn and Bob Giuda tangled over the value of experience and their commitment to reducing government spending in a final debate before 2nd District Republicans select their congressional nominee Tuesday.

Given a single chance to question an opponent, Giuda, a former state representative from Warren, asked Horn, the party's 2008 nominee, why she thought voters would be best served by a representative who has never held office.

"You claim that inexperience is an asset," Giuda told Horn. "We have inexperience in the White House."

Horn countered that career politicians are the problem in Washington. She said the country's founders did not intend for Congress to be the work of a lifetime.

"It's time for some new ideas, for some new energy," she said. "There is nothing about the legislative process that a reasonably intelligent person cannot learn."

Horn also used her question to talk about experience, but from a decidedly different angle. She asked Bass why his 12 years as a congressman would not give the Democratic nominee, Ann McLane Kuster or Katrina Swett, ammunition to sink his candidacy.

Horn pointed to "those 15,000 votes you talk about and all that experience that you talk about in Washington."

"We have two very strong Democratic candidates in this race who have made it clear, here last night and at their previous debates, that they can't wait to run against your record," she said.

Horn said the Republicans must nominate a candidate who can win in November.

There is much riding on result of 2nd District GOP primary


The 2nd District race will be won by either former U.S. Rep. Charlie Bass or Nashua's own Jennifer Horn. There are other, vanity candidates on the ballot who will tell their grandchildren: "I ran for Congress once."

Charlie Bass helped build the problems listed above. Jennifer Horn will join the freshmen coalition dedicated to forcing change.

I hope that many fellow "undeclared" voters will join me and ask for a Republican ballot to vote for Jennifer Horn. Conservative Republicans will do the same. The agents of change will be voting for Jennifer, while the more-of-the-same crowd votes for Charlie.

Charlie claims that he has changed since losing the seat in 2006. That seems a bit fishy. Use John's Politicians Rule #1: Watch what they do, ignore what they say.

Charlie is claiming he knows how to stop out-of-control, congressional spending. That is like an alcoholic advising others on how to control drinking. He might know how to do it but is unable to control himself.

Jennifer Horn does not need to change. Her conservative credentials are well established and unquestioned.
