On Poll indicates close Brownback-Davis gubernatorial race


Brian Hall 4 years, 8 months ago

How come our state GOP spokespeople always conclude that Brownback will win because of the way Kansans voted in 2012, 2010 and 2008? What about the way Kansans voted in 2006, 2002, 1990, 1982, 1978, 1970 and 1966 when Kansans voted for Democratic governors? While the state legislature and our federal reps will remain Republican, the governor's office, as of right now, is up for grabs.

Exactly. Only twice in the past 50 years have Kansans re-elected a Republican governor. Interesting to see how the GOP will try to show Brownback as being cut from the same cloth as John Anderson and Bill Graves.

There is yet hope for Kansas yet. Vote for Mr. Davis if you value the reputation and welfare of the State of Kansas.

The New York Times like the Kansas City Star has been blasting Brownback on the school funding issue. He followed up with a lie or two.

First he blamed Sebelius/Parkinson for the school funding situation.

His second lie was his undying support for the public education system.

Plus he was trying to pass off his tax programs as fiscally responsible such as this one. Worker's taxes siphoned off by their bosses. http://www.jimhightower.com/node/7723#.UkS9vBaTOX0

De ja vu all over again.

Republicans failed to believe the polls when Obama was re-elected, too.

That's okay. Let them stay in their state of denial. The truth will win out.

We're all going to talk about Paul Davis and Jill Docking to everyone we know so that the name recognition thing will be solved.

In fact, the Koch's money will put out enough lies about them that by election day their names should be well known, anyways.

So we just need to make sure we talk bout the Koch boys and how they have enough money to tell the biggest lies, louder and longer than a couple of decent, honest moderate Kansans named Davis and Docking.
