Boyda brings in the big dogs

Seeing Congresswoman Nancy Boyda's seat as one of the most important to protect in the upcoming election, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will be the guest of honor at a fundraiser for her on November 9.

Events like these in Kansas, headlined by such famous faces, allow Nancy to continue to raise her money exactly the way she said she would: from Kansas donors.

(Also, please note, in the comments on the above blog post, none other then Christian Morgan, E.D. of the KS GOP took time out of his busy day to promise a "comment" from the party. Gee, Christian, perhaps if you spent less time posting on blogs you're party wouldn't be in such dire straits).

Why would you bring Nancy Pelosi for a fundraising? Nobody will pay to see her. She's boring. I'm not going to pay my hard-earned money to listen to some politico whine about stuff that nobody understands. I want to hear somebody who is entertaining, inspirational and uplifting.

I recommend that Nancy Boyda invite Posh Spice Victoria Beckham for a fundraising. I'd buy a ticket right now. Or, how about somebody really funny like Larry the Cable Guy? That would be worth paying to see.

If Nancy Boyda wants to raise money for campaign, she should go on hungry strike. We could post a live feed on this blog w/ online contribution form. Nancy Boyda refuses any food or water until people send her $1 million dollars.

There's a little button at the bottom of the screen that shows where blog visitors reside. I noticed that this blog receives visitors from NIKE in Oregon. This clearly proves my theory that Nancy Boyda is nothing more than a puppet to the footwear oligarchs. She's owned by BIG SHOE.

What do you mean "Boyda drings in big dogs"? Are you calling Nancy Pelosi a "dog"? How rude! Sure, she's not the most attractive woman. She could use a lift-and-tuck and maybe spend some time on the thigh-master. But, I wouldn't call her a dog.

Voters' views of Pelosi, Congress have dimmed
By John Hill - jhill@sacbee.com

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's own party is turning on her, apparently because of a perception among California Democrats that she has not done enough to shake up the status quo in Washington, D.C., according to a Field Poll released Friday.

Congress overall is doing even worse with California voters, with an approval rating sagging to 30 percent or below for only the seventh time in the past 15 years, the poll of 1,201 registered voters found. Both Pelosi, the San Francisco Democrat who became speaker this year, and Congress as a whole have fallen short of voter expectations since taking over both houses, poll director Mark DiCamillo said.

"I think the reason for her decline and the low ratings Congress is getting is that voters here are not seeing any change," DiCamillo said.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein's approval rating of 51 percent is down 10 percentage points since March, but consistent with her average over the years. Sen. Barbara Boxer's rating also has slumped, from 54 percent in March to 44 percent. Both Boxer and Feinstein, however, still enjoy the approval of more voters than disapproval of them.

For Pelosi, it was the first time the poll showed more people disapproving than approving of her performance – 40 percent to 35 percent, with 25 percent having no opinion.

Other polls since 2003 have shown larger numbers of voters with no opinion, but Pelosi always won more approval than disapproval. As recently as March, California Democrats approved of Pelosi by a 5-to-1 ratio, DiCamillo said. Now it's less than 2-to-1. Nonpartisan voters also have soured on her.

Only 22 percent of voters approve of the job Congress is doing, the poll found, while 64 percent disapprove.

The six other times that congressional approval has dipped to 30 percent or below can be tied to specific events, such as the impeachment of President Clinton or the economic downturn of the early 1990s that hit California particularly hard, DiCamillo said.

During tough times, he said, voters saw Congress as a convenient target. "They were taking it out on anybody and everybody," he said.

Still, the Democrats now in charge of Congress fared better than Republicans, with a 34 percent approval rating compared to 20 percent for the GOP. California Republicans are more critical of their own party, the poll found, with only 29 percent approving of the performance of congressional Republicans.
