Should we care if Kelly Ayotte is reelected?



New Hampshire Republican Kelly Ayotte is facing a tough challenge from Governor Maggie Hassan. Polls show the two are virtually tied. The question I need you to help me with is... should we care?

Polls have showed the popular Hassan running close with Ayotte in early matchups; Ayotte had a 3-point lead in an NBC News/Marist poll in early September. But Ayotte starts with a $5 million head start: The Republican will have raised $1.6 million in the third quarter, according to a campaign source. That's a slight uptick from the $1.4 million Ayotte raised in the second quarter.

"Unfortunately, Sen. Ayotte has stood with special interests," Hassan said. "She has voted to cut Pell grants for college students. She has voted to make Medicare a voucher system and to erode Social Security benefits. And she's voted to defund Planned Parenthood. She has stood with special interests rather than the people of New Hampshire. I'll put New Hampshire first, and that's what this campaign will be about."

If only. Ayotte may have well voted for these things in symbolic, stand alone votes, but she never voted for these things when they mattered, when real budget bills or debt ceilings were being debated.

Ayotte welcomed Hassan to the race with a statement that avoided criticism of her new Democratic rival. "We have lots to talk about," Ayotte said, "including confronting the challenges facing our state and how we can best deliver results for New Hampshire families."

What a lame response. She talks like a typical phony politician. If she really wanted to deliver results for NH families (and what about the single people?), she would not have voted for funding for Obamacare, the illegal amnesty, and yes, budgets with Planned Parenthood funding in them.

Kelly Ayotte recently sent a public letter to Ted Cruz belitting his opposition strategy, asking him how he hoped to proceed when he couldn't get 60 votes in the Senate. She acted like if there were a dispute over funding, and Republicans didn't want to fund something but Democrats did, that Republicans had no choice but to agree to fund it. In reality it should be the other way around--the party who wants funding for something should be able to be blocked by the party that doesn't. But Kelly Ayotte is the ultimate accomodationist.

Ayotte gets an "F" from Conservativereview.com. She voted in favor of Marco Rubio's amnesty bill and is on record as supporting amnesty for illegal aliens. She has voted consistently to raise the debt ceiling for fear of a non-existent default. (The government always has enough money to pay interest on the debt, if it prioritizes debt repayment over current spending). Ayotte voted to allow the goverment to continue to monitor all citizen communications without warrants. And she voted with Harry Reid to continue Obamacare funding.

She has done a few good things. She voted against the Omnibus spending bill in 2011. She voted to cut funding to the IMF. Ayotte also voted to end ethanol subsidies.

But it's fair to say that she has been a passive participant in most of the problems going on in DC. The question is , should we care if Maggie Hassan beats her? If Republicans lose the majority, than Mitch McConnell won't be the majority leader, but as we have seen McConnell has provided funding for all Obama initiatives, including the illegal amnesty and Obamacare and the Iran deal.

On the other hand Hassan will certainly be even more liberal. Can we expect better from a Republican in New Hampshire? NH used to be quite conservative, but since refugees fleeing liberal tyranny in Massachusetts have voted for Massachusetts-style liberal tyranny in New Hampshire, it has become much more leftist.

Exit question: Is Kelly Ayotte the best we can do now in NH, and if so does that mean we want her to win?

Mark Levin asked his listeners on Friday who should be supported for Speaker of the House. There is Kevin McCarthy, Boehner's #2 who Mark Levin calls "Eric Cantor with ten fewer IQ points"; there is Daniel Webster, who is said to be very conservative but isn't really, and now, apparently, there is Jason Chaffetz, who is somewhat conservative, but also, as one of John Boehner's loyal minions, temporarily booted Mark Meadows from a committee assignment to punish Meadows for disloyalty to Boehner. McCarthy is said to have most of the votes he needs to win.

"Stuff Happens"... like Bush possibly at 0% in the polls


In a poll with a margin of error of about 5%, Jeb Bush is polling at 4%. That means, statistically speaking, that it is very possible that Jeb Bush is at zero percent in the polls. The last time I wrote this about a candidate, he ended up out of the race shortly thereafter. I hope the same does not happen to Jeb, because then the amnesty crowd will be forced to pin their hopes on Marco Rubio, who has the same sweaty nervousness giving speeches as a first time bank robber handing a furtive note to a bank teller.

Legislatures should be security free, gun free zones like college campuses


Our kids deserve the best. On many college campuses, they are not allowed to carry guns to protect themselves. If that's the best, I think our state legislators should share in the best. Whether students can carry guns on campuses is often decided by campus officials, but state law is the ultimate decider. That's why I think state legislatures should be declared "gun free zones" and their security guards and metal detectors should be withdrawn.
