Ting’s Garden

This was last year, but it will be like this again in about 2 weeks.  I get lots of zinnias (thousands, I am sure) from about $10 worth of seeds.  I plant them in 2 week intervals because they like it to be nice and hot to germinate and thrive.  If we get a cool snap before they get going well they stay sort of puny all season, so I stagger the planting.  The little house was my daughter’s play house made from old windows we tore out of a house we were renovating, and odds and ends of left over construction inventory.  Now that she is grown and gone I store my garden equipment in there.  I miss the tea party days, though.

This poll may explain why Barry has suddenly decided to Bring Our Troops Home, over his general’s objections, but just in time to get him lots of free press for his re-election campaign. How I feel about this is best left unsaid.

The poll, however, I can yap about with verve and perhaps a touch of panache.

Gallup notes that polls from June-of-the-year-before are not highly predictive of election outcomes.

In two cases (both Bush), there was no distinct opposition front-runner by June-of-the-year-before and both presidents polled WAY ahead of the “generic Democrat.”  One won the election. One lost.

In the other three cases, where there was a specific front-running opposition contender, the opposition candidate polled ahead of the president in the June-of-the-year-before Gallup poll.

Two of those – Clinton and Reagan – won re-election anyway. The third – Ronald Reagan – beat the incumbent.

None of the five is quite like this year’s situation, but there are clues in three of them that I find very cheering.

In both of the “Sitting Presidents v. Generic Opponent” polls gave the PRESIDENT a HUGE lead. Obama is behind.

And, in the one case where the weak, appeasing, Democrat president, Jimmy Carter, was running, his strong, conservative, Republican opponent, Ronald Reagan, polled slightly ahead of Carter, then won the election by a landslide.

Dear God, may we have another Reagan taking the Oath of Office in January 2013.

This man and the lapdog Left Stream Media that helped get him put in charge of MY loved ones are beneath contempt. I’m trying not to hate, but this particular thing hits so close to home, it’s a real struggle.
