Yo Momma and the Ford Poll

Harold Ford Jr. has the newest poll showing he's ahead by a nose. Well that's good but there's millions left to be spent and how do you notch those last few percent that nail the coffin shut for your opponent? I think the answer is right here in Ford's poll:



QUESTION: Of the following issues, which one do you feel will be most influential in your voting decision in the November election for national offices, such as the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House:

21% The war in Iraq
16% The economy
12% Homeland Security and the War on Terror
9% Immigration
8% Moral issues & family values
7% Health care
7% Taxes and government spending
5% Gas prices & energy issues
6% Social Security
2% Education
7% Other/Not Sure

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Of all those issues there's an argument to be made except for two of them.

Republcans would go down in flames with the Iraq war going so well, if it weren't for their Fox news friends covering up for them by confusing the issue so badly that the average American can't tell what's going on.

Social Security is a different issue all together. Grover Norquist wants it dead. He's the Bush economic advisor who has his own struggles right now with the Jack Abramoff scandal hitting the fan. Saint William Moyers has a three part documentary that will hit PBS this Wednesday that will lay out in stark detail the sordid relationships between Abramoff, Norquist, Tom DeLay, Ralph Reed and others. With Republicans openly claiming that they will kill Social Security if they retain control of the Senate...Why isn't Social Security a slam dunk issue?

Health Care is huge but the solution is murky. Folks don't understand the single payer system and can't be educated in a sound bite. Social Security? Republicans will kill it and your Momma, and her new boyfriend, will have to move in with you. That's pretty simple.

Even Bob Corker doesn't want his Momma moving in with him.

Peace,

Steve
