    I've often wondered about Sen. Hatch (R). He has been publically prominent a number of times over the years in sponsoring legislation, especially dealing with children, with Sen. Edward Kennedy (D). Sen. Hatch has had a history of both conservative and moderate positions. It seems that this latest survey bears out some of my suspicious I've held for many years. Though, I know many Democrats who really feel he needs to be voted out of office and has been a real problem for Democrats, particularly as to comes to judicial nominations where he holds vast political influence.

    I would not take that as a compliment! Going from a man who was the strongest defender of the Constitution to working closer with the Democrats than his own party is pretty sad. Now he votes to help destroy the Constitution. He also does not seem interested in representing and listening to his constituents.

    I remember many years ago when Hatch was running for office against Senator Moss, his theme was
    "What do you call a Senator who has been in congress too long? You call him home"
    Time to retire the Hatch man.

    Hopefully, some brave conservative Republican candidate will help us get rid of him in the next primary election.

    Christopher Dodd has spent too much time in Washington DC and has forgotten who his constituents are. Instead of campaign contributions from CT residents, Dodd has decided to turn to corporations who think that CT residents are so stupid that our votes can be bought. 80% of his campaign contributions will come from special interest groups outside of CT looking for payback from 2011-2017 at the cost of the tax payers.

    While this country has term limits for the office of President, Senator Dodd has managed to stay in Washington DC during the following Presidential terms:

    Reagan 1981-1985
    Reagan 1985-1989
    Bush 41 1989-1993
    Clinton 1993-1997
    Clinton 1997-2001
    Bush 43 2001-2005
    Bush 43 2005-2009
    Obama 2009-2011

    Thats 7 Presidential terms. If our elected officials cant pass laws limiting the terms of Congressman and Senators, then its up to the people.

    It doesnt matter your race, party affiliation, sex, or religion Its time to send a message to the politicians, NO CT RESIDENT SHOULD VOTE FOR CHRISTOPHER DODD IN 2010
