Ben Cardin has given up his current job in government to run for another one. Congressman Cardin (D) of MD wants to be a Senator now. Ben Cardin has held political positions in government for 40 years now. The general public would be hard pressed to name one great thing Cardin has accomplished. The Baltimore Sun newspaper announced today that they are endorsing Cardin for Senator instead of Michael Steele. I am not surprised by this at all. The Sun obviously has the "more of the same ole, same ole" ideas in politics as it has in its own world of news reporting. The Baltimore Sun has been fading and fading continually here in Baltimore. Its obvious biases and ultra-liberal slant was a factor in my cancelling my subscription. The Examiner entered the scene in Baltimore and the Sun is fading even more with competition. It was interesting to be bombarded with teenagers at my door that were hired by the Sun to try to attract subscriptions. Each time, I would ask them "why" I should subscribe....and each time, they would respond with "the coupons on Sunday". That is very telling isn't it? A "major" newspaper can't get its salespeople to tell us why we should read their product yet they have the audacity to try to tell us who to vote for. Amazing.
As for Ben Cardin, sorry Ben.....you need to retire. After 40 years you should have accomplished more than just a few things. That we don't even know what those few things are, is an indication those things just are not impressive for 40 years of effort. It's time to give someone else an opportunity to shine.....you had more than a fair share. I have narrowed down my options to Lt. Governor Michael Steele (R) or Zeese the Independent candidate for Senator.
