Ray Hackett Cancels Election

For the Second Time veteran Bulletin Editor Ray Hackett has called off an election.

According to Hackett the Democrat primary will decide the next Governor. If you thought you were going to have a say, watch a debate, maybe cast a vote for your choice than you were sadly mistaken. It’s over unless you are a Democrat. Your voter card is null and void.

Ray Hackett has made a ruling and if you don’t like it than that’s just to bad.

Evidently the Democrats in the legislature will be overturning the Constitution and crowning the incumbent Democrats. Rell likely will say she disagrees with that but will let the law abolishing elections go into effect without her signature. She will however purse her lips un-approvingly and wag her finger.

Back on August 22nd – 15 months away from the election in November 2010 – Mr. Hackett said the Republicans have no hope on defeating Bulletin Buddy Joe Courtney.

Hackett wrote that very few people could name Courtney’s opponent. Well there is a reason for that of course – he doesn’t have an opponent yet. Courtney himself will not even be nominated until next summer – assuming he decides to run and does not have a primary. What’s more how many people can name Joe Courtney as their congressman? The man has gone into hiding since the furor erupted over the nationalized healthcare. He held one meeting! One! The majority of the people are not happy with what is going on in D.C.

Courtney’s name-rec is not all that wonderful as noted by Ed Munster at the last 2nd Congressional Convention here in Windham. Tellingly on Youtube the Bulletin was doing an interview with their favorite Congressman and it was so long they had to do it in twelve segments. As of right now the first video has been viewed 195 times. Part two has only been viewed 34 times.

Think about that for a moment. What explains that huge drop off? The last one was only viewed just 15 times and the Bulletin staff probably accounts for half of that.
What this disinterest tells me is that people are not interested in what Courtney has to say. That does not bode well for his chances of keeping his job.

It just amazes me that someone who is touted having seen it all twice can say that Joe Courtney is a shoo-in when there has been such a rebuke of Congress over issue after issue but particularly over Obama’s plan to takeover healthcare.

People are afraid that their coverage will be taken away. Seniors are afraid that funds that are presently used on them will be diluted so the government to cover 20 year olds. Dick Morris said they have good reason to be scared to death and evidently ace reporter Ray Hackett is unaware that seniors do tend to vote in elections.

Mr. Hackett’s contention that the election is over before it begins is one born of desperation. The Second Congressional District is always fought over and it has turned over a number of times. Just ask that other Bulletin Buddy Sam Gejdenson about that.

For the record their are currently two (and there may be more coming) candidates for the Republican nomination and they are
