Schwarz is a no show because she think she has it in the bag. She is one Democrat that Corbett could beat for sure.

I can see his mailers about the abortion clinic operator. that will play well in Pa.

Visionary mayor Ed Pawlowski hsa been gaining momentum and certainly has the respect of those whose analysis isn't clouded by hate blogging misanthropes that live outside of Allentown.

A-town Dem

Since when is a cell phone a free item necessary for survival if you are a low income person on subsidy from the state? Will one of these Governor hopefuls agree to CUT this waste of my taxpayer monies?

Yocco said...

Mayor Ed Pawlowski's convincing re-election this past November is a reminder that those who sow seeds of discontent but offer no vision for the future will be rejected by the voters.

The executive experience he has gained as mayor of Allentown will allow him to stimulate action in the legislature by consensus building and a passion for good government. He has my vote.

The vote of someone who does not identify himself? If you did, you would probably cost him votes. And, no, Blog Mentor, Ppawlowski's win against an unfunded independent candidate who was out of the country all Summer, was very low. The polling indicates that, outside of Allentown, everyone recognizes that phony for what he is.

Like how he got to get JB Reilly and Joe Topper to steer $50k to support Republican Brown against Dem Callahan. That alone should condemn him amingDs and I am suprised he even his the gall to show his face in Bethlehem.

But he has sign-stealing snakes like you, telling him he can do no wrong.

Yocco said...

O'Hare when Pawlowski's polling numbers start to spike and your hatchet jobs become more unhinged and desperate the members of his election team will relish in the spectacle but stay focused on the march to Harrisburg.

Bernie O'Hare said...

I think we'll be waiting a long time. After attempting to steal from surrounding municipalities, alienating Bethlehem Dems and calling Nazareth the "boonies", I'm sure everyone will be jumping in his bandwagon.

Yocco, you keep smoking high grade marijuana or doing LSD and all will work out the way you want it to!

Schwarz the libtar4d Dem's are pushing he and she will go, right over the cliff. A terrible candidate that Corbett will probably secretly fund.

What are they going to do? Fill out one gigantic form?

Chris Casey said...

Great. Once again at a a time (5 PM) when people who actually work for a living can't attend.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Chris, aren't most people who work for a living Republicans?

Sorry, i couldn't resist that.
