First lady Michelle Obama shares a very dangerous belief with her husband when it comes to transforming things: that it is most important to be seen as the driving force behind over-reaching changes no matter who they hurt. Toward that end, Mrs. Obama has pushed hard for what has euphemistically been called a child nutrition bill but is in fact a $4.5 billion attempt to implement a high-end solution to unhealthy school lunch programs by stealing future funding for food stamp programs.

Did Illinois US Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias lie to voters or to the IRS? Those would seem to be the only two possibilities considering the Democratic candidate for President Barack Obama's old seat took a $2.7 million tax deduction for working hundreds of hours at his family's failed Broadway Bank in 2006. But the candidate has been telling voters he left the bank by late 2005.

US Senate candidate and Congressman Joe Sestak (D-Pennsylvania) decided to skip a debate against Republican Pat Toomey Monday night.

West Virginia Governor and Democratic Senate candidate Joe Manchin supported the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) before it passed. He's on video at a union event both praising and defending President Barack Obama and clearly stating "I am totally behind Health Care Reform." He was still in favor of Obamacare after it was pushed through Congress while the majority of Americans and West Virginians were against it. But now that he's facing the possibility of losing his Senate bid because voters believe he would be nothing more than a rubber stamp for the unpopular Obama agenda, Candidate Manchin is suddenly in favor of repealing at least some of the new law.

According to Senator John Kerry (D-Massachusetts), the reason his fellow Democrats are facing what could be unprecedented losses in the upcoming mid-term elections is that the majority of voters are uninformed, easily swayed idiots. He'd be right if he were referring to the elections of 2008 but unfortunately for him and his party, it's 2010.
