    I was going over some of the polls for the upcoming elections and , well, if you are a lefty, do not pack your bags for D.C.

    It Looks as if the GOP/conservatives/Libertarians/Tea Partiers (or whatever the right is calling themselves these days) have regrouped and are making a very enthusiastic and highly energized campaign to rid America of "Progressivism"

    I am starting to think that the Democrats are facing a mighty hard fall. How did this happen? Was it UHC?? Was it the cigerette Tax?? Was it Glen Beck??

    Will the Republicans capture the entire Congress? What do you think?? I am a little flabbergasted at how a political party that was in the dumpster just a year ago came back with such vigor.


    It is as if George W. Bush never occured!! What are your thoughts??

    They have? They are? Who leads them? What is their message?

    In my HUMBLE opinion, any incumbent, regardless of party affiliation is in trouble. The people elected Obama to get things fixed in Washington. The people are now upset with Obama and everyone else in Washington for accomplishing exactly SQUAT in 2009.

    Not only that, but douchebag RINOS, like Charlie Crist, Huckster and Tim Pawlenty, may well no longer find their squishiness and willingness to accept leftist kook premises in terms of legislating welcome in the party.

    If the GOP doesn't pick up at least 30 seats in November, they have failed.

    You have it all wrong.

    The GOP isn't going to kick the progressives out. America is. It is unfortunate that the GOP with their liberals are going to be the recipient of this good fortune. Unless America rids the GOP of its progressives as well, not much is going to change.

    I think that what is going to happen is both houses are going to return to being almost perfectly split, right down the middle. A good thing all things considered.

    BTW. George W. Bush has nothing to do with it. He is last decade. This is now.

    Bush is less than 10 years ago so he is most of thos past decade.

    Of course I can understand many's desire to erase the past and start over after having voted for Bush twice :D

    Yes, that will happen, but it's interesting what's going on in the world of politics. I got this email from Blanche Lincoln today:

    My guess is that the President included these cuts in his proposed budget so that Blanche could write emails to her constituents like the one above. She is bound to get additional support and contributions because of this email. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of Demo politicians are writing similar emails.

    I'm not sure even that will help her much.

    The GOP is going to get another chance to lead in 2010. Let's hope they get it right. They need to stop this crazy deficit spending and balance the budget. Then they need to cut up the credit card forever by passing a law that legally mandates and requires a balanced budget. I'd also like to see a law that limits total Federal expenditures to a maximum of 20% of GDP. Government is too big, they need to get out of the way.
