Former US Rep. James A. Traficant Jr and Felon Says He is Going to Run

A true political metaphor …

You have got to be joking … Former US Representative and felon James A. Traficant Jr is going to run for office again in Ohio in 2010. Just what we need a convicted felon running for office. That is of coarse as opposed to all the nonconvicted felons that are presently in the House.

And we wonder why the American people have no confidence in politicians.

“I’m going to run,” Traficant declared before some 35 members of The Biz Society assembled at the Rosetta Stone restaurant downtown to launch the group’s Youngstown chapter.

Traficant said he still isn’t sure which district he’ll throw his hat in, but he has nominating petitions circulating in three congressional districts –the 17th, the 6th and the 16th. And, the former congressman noted he hasn’t decided on whether to run as a Democrat, a Republican, an independent, or perhaps on another party ticket.

“I’m going to run for Congress somewhere,” he said.

Maybe Traficant can run on the Con ticket?

Traficant’s announcement comes just four months after the former congressman was released from a federal prison in Rochester, Minn., where he served a portion of a seven-year sentence for racketeering and bribery. The congressman was convicted in 2002 and became the second member to be expelled from of the House of Representatives since the Civil War.

As NRO states, some OHIO race is about to get real weird … Traficant says ‘beam me up’ in 2010.

First Lady Michelle Obama Shrinking in Polls Thanks to Anchor Hubby Obama


Wow, First Lady Michelle Obama is sinking in the polls too and she has not even done anything. I guess she has her hubby, Barack Hussein Obama to thank. Michelle can’t blame it on RIO; however, she can blame it on her husbands incredibly sinking poll numbers. One would think that there would still be a love affair with the first lady in the first year of a new President.


But as the first calendar year of the new White House regime draws to a close, First Lady Michelle Obama is experiencing the same drop in poll numbers as her husband. She’s not elected, of course, and not charged at least officially with making the tough executive decisions that come out of the Oval Office.

As a result, first ladies have typically fared better in different public opinion polls than their more controversial husbands. And now even as the female Harvard lawyer in the family and the one with the famously buff arms, Mrs. O still remains somewhat more popular than her spouse.

Obama’s sinking poll numbers seem to be affecting not just the Democrats chances in the upcoming 2010 and 2012 elections, but also his own wife’s favorability rating. There will be hell at home to pay for that.

In the latest Rasmussen poll, 55% of US voters have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Mrs. Obama. That is down 7% from last month and the First Lady didn’t even make a comment like “it was the first time she was proud of America”. She is still more popular than her Presidential husband who has hit the skids due to 10% unemployment, Obamacare and the economy.

Look at this, Michelle Obama even finishes a distant fourth in the Gallup “Most Admired Woman” poll, way behind Sarah Palin. With all of the Michelle Obama hoopla, Michelle’s arms, Michelle’s shoes … she even finishes behind Oprah. Rather interesting polling for the First Lady of Hope & Change.

Hillary Clinton and Sarahcuda received 16% and 15% respectively, while Michelle Obama only garnered 7%. What, Sarah Palin basically tied for the most admired woman of 2009. What will liberals say!

Daily Commentary – Wednesday, December 30th, 2009 – Full Body Scanners at Airports, Security or Privacy?

  • There have been complaints in the past that full body scanners are too invasive. They may have stopped the “underwear bomber” from getting through security – so the question seems to be, which is worse?
