  •  NM-Sen; anyone catch the debate? (0+ / 0-)

    I happened across the debate between Heather Wilson and Martin Heinrich.  My conclusion?  

    Heinrich was pathetic.

    The last poll I saw had him comfortably ahead.  I hope so, because Wilson came across as intelligent and reasonable. (!) Heinrich came across as a lightweight, and he never responded to Wilson's repeated emphasis that Social Security is completely separate from the regular budget.  (Duh!).  All he had to do was point out that the slashing of SS taxes in the last few years has changed it from a net positive to a net negative, and mention the $2.5 trillion that technically resided with the SSA before the tax cuts.

    I do want to see Heinrich win, but only because he's the lesser evil.  I think his voting record stinks, mainly because he's been a consistent supporter of war spending.  

    This is one case where I hope no one watched the debate.

    I am become Man, the destroyer of worlds
