John Adler, a South Jersey story


While strolling through the Cranberry Festival a few weeks ago down in Chatsworth NJ, I come upon John Adler the Democratic Candidate for the 3rd Congression District.

Adler is in a very close race against Chris Myers to succed Republican Jim Saxton in Congress.

He was very cordial and polite, we talked for several minutes and he mentioned how he was in Middletown a few weeks earlier to see Barack Obama at the home of Philip Murphy.

Below is a short bio that tells you a little bit about John Adler

>House GOP leader uses expletive to describe Obama

>From Yahoo News

House Republican leader John Boehner has used a vulgar expression to refer to Democrat Barack Obama and his voting record in the Illinois legislature.

While campaigning for Republican presidential candidate John McCain on Wednesday, Boehner told a small crowd at a bar in the college town of Oxford that failing to vote “yes” or “no” on an issue meant a lawmaker was a “chickenshit.”

The Ohio congressman said the last thing the country needs is to have a “chicken” in the White House.

McCain supporter turns away children of Obama supporters during trick-or-treat

A Metro-Detroit Michigan woman refused to give candy on Halloween to children of Barack Obama supporters.

Shirley Nagel of Grosse Pointe Farms gave out treats Friday evening, but only to those who share her support of John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin.

Fox 2 News reports a sign posted outside Nagel’s house, about 12 miles west of Detroit, served notice to all trick-or-treaters. It read: “No handouts for Obama supporters, liars, tricksters or kids of supporters.”

Nagel told a Fox 2 reporter that “Obama’s scary.” When asked about children who’d been turned away empty-handed and crying, she said: “Oh well. Everybody has a choice.”

The following video is the Halloween night report live from the home of the McCain supporter who turned away sad, crying children and toddlers.

What the Next President Inherits

What could be more important than the upcoming election? What the next president actually does once elected. While a feverish media dissects Palins wardrobe and plumbs Joe Wurzelbachers biography, real challenges for America are piling up. Domestic struggles over marriage and abortion rights will define who we are, and our response to global conflicts and crises will define our place in the world. The end of the campaigning is just the beginning.
