Tidbits

Obama fatigue setting in according to Political Radar which is citing Pew Research.


Senate Republicans.
The New York State Senate is passing Initiative and Referendum. If you like reform you will like I & R, which is a powerful mechanism that allows for more voter involvement in the process. This has long been a platform for the Independence Party.
“Initiative and referendum is an extremely powerful reform tool in politics as it gives the people the ability to make informed decisions to directly effect and change the powers and priorities of their government,” said Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos said.
Senate Democrats
New York State Senate Democrats are divided on the property tax cap.

A short time ago the Senate Democrats introduced the legislation that eliminates your STAR rebate, which is a disaster for NNY.

This just in;

Senator Darrel Aubertine Voted YES to Eliminate STAR Rebates for Thousands of NNY's

Senate GOP Majority Leader Dean Skelos replied,
“I don’t think Governor Paterson  has asked us to amend this bill.” He noted that by eliminating the STAR program, 833,000 would lose their STAR rebate, while 623,000 would receive a circuit breaker benefit. 1.5 million taxpayers receive STAR check in 2007.

let's review: a slim majority of respondents say they're hearing the "right amount" or "too little" about obama, and you call that obama fatigue? huh? i think the upshot of the poll is that people realize obama has been getting more media coverage than mccain. couldn't be because obama is just a better campaigner, could it?
