Daily Democratic Wire 12-28-2009

George Wenschhof

This morning, President Barack Obama will speak on the recent attempted terrorist attack on an airplane -
he is sure to emphasize he has already ordered the review of the "watch lists" used by security personnel assigned to airports and the heightened security he ordered upon learning of the incident. He will speak to reporters covering him while on vacation in Hawaii.


Senator Joe "The Hawk" Lieberman (I-Conn.) says U.S. should act in a preemptive manner toward Yemen -
replacing the cry to stop the spread of communism is the new cry to stop the spread of terrorism. Lieberman feels the U.S. should act against Yemen after the latest terrorist action taken by a young man who allegedly acquired the explosive device in Yemen. has more here.


Chris Van Hollen, chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) says no more party switches expected -
the Maryland Representative made this statement on the heels of the recent defection to the Republican party by Alabama representative Parker Griffith. Look to see Griffith be defeated in the Republican primary which will serve him right. I liked it when Chris Matthews said recently "that no Democrat has two last names anyway". has more here.


Many of next year's 37 Governor races are competitive -
so far, neither incumbent Republican or Democrats are spared close contests. made a list of what they feel are the top ten races with Florida, California and Texas among those states vulnerable for Republicans. Democrats were vulnerable in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan. You can read the full article here.


The Republican party of "No" responsible for over 200 pending nominations by President Obama to high posts being held up
- only 75 of the 200 have gotten through a committee review and they were being held up for various reasons in the senate. Another example of how the republican party in partisan foolishness, is working against finding solutions to the problems faced by Americans today. The NY Times has more here.
