Al Franken’s conservative opponent Mike McFadden is closing in the polls as he makes the rounds of rural Minnesota. McFadden met with a small but enthusiastic crowd in Rochester to talk about health care Friday. The opponents met for a debate in Duluth on Wednesday. You can see the full debate on You Tube here. 

The latest polling from Real Clear politics has McFadden closing within 8-9 points on the incumbent Franken. In 2008 Franken trailed his opponent Norm Coleman but about the same amount but won by a slim margin of 312 votes after a long legal wrangle and vote recounts.

    Health care would be a topic Franken may want to avoid.

    So here we are and Obamacare turned out exactly like us right wing nutcases predicted it would. Let’s summarize the lies and disaster of the rollout.

    People massively lost their insurance. Huge amounts of people in every state were told that they could keep their plan when in fact they couldn’t. And let’s see what the Progressive’s answer to this lie is: “Not uh.” Brilliant Pelosi.

    Premiums have gone up for anyone with a decent job. Huge increases. And forecasted next year to go up even more to pay for the less successful or those who don’t work at all. Pelosi’s answer? “Not uh.”

    How’s that website enrollment? Smooth as the U.S. Post office, Barry? Actually the Post Office is going bankrupt and your enrollment protocols have been a disaster. Your answer? “Not uh.”

    ACA. Completely unable to sustain itself. Youth doesn’t think you’re nearly as cool, Barry, once they realize they have to pay more so someone else pays less. Again let me hear your response?
    “Not uh.”

    ACA may very well end our economy as my fiction predicts if someone doesn’t admit out loud that the emperor has no clothes. Then again, maybe that was Barry’s intent in the beginning.

  2. Perhaps this will be “The Year of the Conservative” after all….Considering ‘how’ Franken won last round it might be prudent to put GPS trackers on ballot boxes. I’m in Texas but have looked at McFadden’s profile and it appears that he is interested and adapt to restoring some dignity, honor & confidence to Washington. To me, that’s an excellent place to start…
