The LuLac Edition #3187, April 10th, 2016







Bernie Sanders has ads running on local radio station. Heard him on Magic 93 this morning. More to come from all the candidates as the primary race nears in Pennsylvania.

Senate candidate Joe Sestak (
The Philadelphia Inquirer – our state’s largest newspaper – endorsed his candidacy today. It’s not the endorsement of our candidacy, but what The Inquirer wrote about it that matters:
• “his willingness to put principle above party”
• “the best credentials and experience to immediately serve Pennsylvania and the nation”
• “he can maneuver beyond partisan politics to help the middle class rebound from years of stagnant wages”
• “Sestak’s refusal to be put into a partisan box”
• “a deep understanding of government and foreign policy that Katie McGinty and John Fetterman cannot match.”
Quite frankly the endorsement comes as a surprise to me given the support being generated for former Wolf and Rendell official Katie McGinty. Sestak who has not been funded as well as McGinty needs the boost. The three Senate candidates were on WVIA TV last night and I was impressed with Jon Fetterman as well as Mr. Sestak. We’ll see how this shakes out on Election Day a few weeks away.

Governor Tom Wolf (Photo:
Gov. Tom Wolf’s approval rating is submerging even though he let pass the budget supported by the Republican-controlled Legislature. According to a new Quinnipiac University Poll, Wolf’s approval rating among voters dropped 6 percentage points.
Released Thursday, 35 percent of voters approved of Wolf, 52 percent disapproved and 13 percent had no opinion.
Back in October of ’15, 41 percent of voters gave Wolf a decent rating but 44 percent disagreed and 15 percent had no opinion. After this election year, there will be a municipal, county and city wide elections. That is usually the time an incumbent governor starts making his case for re-election and potential challengers start to make some noise.
Wolf seemed nonplussed by the numbers and continues to govern with initiatives that he could get through in his first two years. Wolf is not the first Governor in his initial term to have lower numbers at this point in his term. But he hopes to avoid the same narrative that plagued his predecessor Tom Corbett.

Good morning students,
First of all, I hope that your first weekend of baseball betting went in your favor and that you are not in hock to your respective bookies. Judging from the several black eyes I see, I fear that is not so.
The work of this classroom moves forward….
Students, as promised I am going today to attempt to review the current chaos (and it is CHAOS) in the Republican party. As you know, the liberal in conservative clothing, Mr. Trump is going to enter the GOP Convention with a majority of the delegates. Not enough for the nomination, but statistically a guaranteed majority. Unfortunately, the GOP power brokers waited too late to do what they could have done last Fall and now we have the guaranteed contested convention that we feared. So, what do we do?
First off, as you ingrates would put it, no way , no how can Trump come out of Cleveland as GOP standard bearer. How can we, as a party nominate a man who wants to preserve the giveaway Social Security and Medicare programs that were created by socialist presidents???? Give me your answer!!! If we do that, then we may as well put Bernie Sanders on the ticket (you may laugh).
Here is how I see it. As we shall go beyond a first ballot, it is necessary for the alternate candidate to be up and ready by the time the second or third ballot is presented. I see no other way out of this but to place an outsider into nomination. Nominating Cruz or Kasich would only create chaos with the bitterness of the remaining two camps who also campaigned. We need a candidate who did not campaign and that man is no other than Willard Mitt Romney.
Gov. Romney has the experience, the drive and the compassion needed to go onto victory in November. And he has shown remarkable leadership in this entire debacle known as the 2016 GOP Primary Race, serving as a calming influence amongst the chaos.
If there was ever a man who can provide a needed boost to a fractured party, inspiring those now shaking their heads and wondering where it all went wrong, it is the good Governor.
Therefore, I am as of this morning placing the name of Willard Mitt Romney into nomination as GOP standard bearer. As I said several years ago, Willard Mitt Romney will be the next president of the United States. If the GOP takes my advice, that indeed will be a fulfilled prophecy.
Something to think about this morning…….
Class Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Professor, I said that Romney would be the man in November of 2015 on WBRE TV.

Sure, Romney's the man but not a winner. He would be the poster boy for Same Ole, Same Ole. Milqtoast. Better than allowing the far left to,appoint judges and continue the crash course we are on. Damn this is not going to be pretty. I'll dose up on pepto bismol before entering the booth and hope no one sees me.
