    Adding a D to "anger" gives us the word, Danger.

    The anger? Our by and large centrist electorate has been angry for years. It showed in 2006 and 2008, sweeping the Democrats into strong majority power because they promised change and appealed to that anger.

    But when it became clear that "change" was actually, much much more of the same, this electorate stayed angry. And is really really angry now.

    The Danger? Voters voting out of the strong emotion of anger instead of with a healthy dose of rational thought -- look what happened last time!

    The problem now is, the centrist electorate now knows at whom to direct their anger. It's not the President -- it was actually never the President -- it's the Congress.

    People by and large are waking up to the fact that no President can really give us any type of real change if he has essentially the same Congress his/her predecessor had.

    People by and large like President Obama. It's only the small but vocal, rabid extremist partisans who either worship him or hate him. That's not representative of our electorate, which by and large is center-right centrists.

    Democrats, you mis-read the tea leaves in 2008. The election really wasn't a sweeping endorsement of far-left policies, wasn't a mandate for your decades-old wish-list. It was anger at the Washington establishment which you promised would change. No change, more anger.

    You're about to lose Teddy's Senate seat, the people of MA are re-taking it. It was never Teddy's, it was theirs all along but you forgot that. The reminder comes tomorrow.

    Change will finally come, in 2011 when the new Congress is seated, one which will more closely represent the electorate and one which I believe will ensure President Obama's place in history as a truly great President, just like Bill Clinton shined best when he had a opposing Congress.

    Because ya see, the executive branch and the legislative should always have a adversarial relationship -- not a co-dependency one like we saw for eight years, and certainly not a marriage like we see now.

    The electorate in their anger, forgot that. Thanks for reminding us!

    Gimme a D! "DEEEEE"
    Gimme an A! "AAAAAA"
    Gimme a N! "NNNNNNN"
    Gimme a G! "GEEEEEEEE"
    Gimme a E! "EEEEEE"
    Gimme a R! "ARRRRRR"

    What's that spell? "DANGER"
    What's that spell? "DANGER"

    It starts with a D, and ends with a R. Learn it, live it, love it because it's the future. Because you squandered the "mandate." Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to see repeats.

    I wonder how they'll spin their defeat in MA?

    Will they play little political games and hold up the certification?

    To me it's not all the same but skates around the issues those I talk to hold important like curbing overseas trade, (China). Great post.

    Scot Brown winning in Massachusetts would be a good start to the halting of the Socialist/Democrat assault on our Freedom & Liberty. The tide could now be turning. It's time for some push-back on the Socialist advancement. I think most Independents have soured on the Democrats and their extreme Socialist agenda. 2010 could be a great year for Freedom & Liberty. Lets hope so.

    Yea i really do believe that most Independents lean Conservative. They are going to play a big part in the coming 2010 elections. I think they're going to vote for the more Conservative candidates for the most part. This will of course benefit the Republican Party. I guess we'll see.

    This nation's population is center-right. I haven't seen anyone try to dispute that.

    Indys' votes will waver between Dem and Rep depending on alot of factors. We're not married to nor do we have any emotional attachment to a brand name or an idealogy. Therefore you never know where we're going to end up. And, it won't be a unanimous choice among Indys.

    That's why tight elections are always in doubt and you can't really give polls too much clout.
