We’re Still Swingin’

This article suggests Pennsylvania will yet again be a battleground state in 2008, because neither party can afford to ignore it.  The big problem Republicans are going to have with Pennsylvania in 2008 is that suburban Republican voters do not like George W. Bush’s brand of conservatism, and I have a feeling a lot of rural Republicans in our state aren’t too happy with him either.  Absent some big issue that will mobilize Republican voters, I don’t see Pennsylvania going red in 2008, but it could happen, and I agree that the possibility will keep the candidates fighting over our state.

    Until Philidelphia’s murder rate becomes part of the nightly news, night after night, and suddenly Democrats stop looking quite so attractive.

    It already is. Democrats in Philadelphia will keep getting reelected, because, you know, the crime problem in Philadelphia isn’t their fault. It’s the fault of the people in Harrisburg who won’t pass tough gun laws.

    It would be great to see good government issues make a come back. Lower taxes, streamlined govt/waste reduction, and maybe say “we’ll find a way to improve roads” without raising taxes, improve the tax climate to stimulate economic growth.
