Raleigh Metro Magazine Editor Bernie Reeves announced this week that he will challenge Congressman Brad Miller in the fall.

In his latest monthly column in the magazine, Reeves discusses what he calls the “coup d’état orchestrated by the Obama administration,” and points out that David Horowitz says that the term progressive is the word that communists use to “cloak their operations.”

Just a couple of months before the 2008 elections Reeves said on a WRAL-TV talk show that the Democratic Party was like the Soviet empire in 1991, teetering on the edge of collapse, and sneeringly pointed out that part of the problem was the nomination of a “multicultural” candidate for president.

What a lovely use of code words.

As for his political prognostication skills, Reeves predicted on the show that Republican John McCain would carry North Carolina with 70 percent of the vote.  Not quite.  Obama won North Carolina of course.

Reeves apparently can’t get over it so he is now running for Congress.  This ought to be interesting.

    45% of Americans think Obama is a “failure”, not just that they disprove of his performance, but that he is an actual “failure” in his first year in office.

    So much for hope and change.

    November will be a blood bath, especially if healthcare reform passes. The majority of Americans are opposed to the legislation in Congress, see few personal benefits from these bills, and believe they will raise the cost of healthcare. Even more interesting is that more Americans trust insurance companies more than they trust government to provide healthcare.

    Just is interesting is that people don’t trust Republicans any more than Obama or Democrats. On health care more Democrats trust Obama than Republicans trust Republicans.
