TODAY'S NEWS HEADLINES for INDEPENDENT VOTERS 7/28/10

INDEPENDENT VOTERS

  • Plain Talk: We only say we want independent pols (Dave Zweifel, The Cap Times - Madison WI) Meanwhile, the independent voters exhibit the patience of a hungry baby, willing to change course at the drop of a hat or buy into the loudest rhetoric, whether there’s any truth to it or not. From the beginning, with President Obama’s blessing, Senate Democrats tried to get Republicans involved in the health care legislation, only to be rebuffed after wasting six months of crucial time trying. In return, Obama’s approval ratings by “independents” plummeted. Go figure.
  • The secret Twitter war for America's independents: #tcot vs #p2 (Yobie Benjamin, San Francisco Chronicle/Hacking Capitalism, Carbon, Politics & Food blog)

Moser, Editor, Crossville TN Chronicle) Cumberland County Republican Party Chairman Aaron Snodderly's call for GOP unity was muted Thursday night when he endorsed the challenge last week of a voter's right to cast a ballot in his party's primary and went on to state he favors closed primaries for Tennessee.
