    44 - GOP Rep. Bachus: 'Sarah Palin cost us control of the Senate'


    By Emi Kolawole
    Alabama Rep. Spencer Bachus (R) told members of the South Shelby Chamber of Commerce that former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was probably the reason for the GOP's failure to take control in the U.S. Senate in last week's election.

    "The Senate would be Republican today except for states (in which Palin endorsed candidates) like Christine O'Donnell in Delaware," Bachus said. "Sarah Palin cost us control of the Senate."

    According to the Shelby County Reporter, Bachus made the remarks Nov. 4, at the local chamber's monthly luncheon meeting. But Bachus didn't stop with Palin, he also weighed in on Democrats continued accountability when it came to the power balance in Washington. "If you think Republicans are not in charge in Washington...," Bachus said. "Democrats are in control of the presidency and the Senate. It would take 67 votes to override any veto."

    Yeah...And I'm sure that Partymanhack Junky is all broken up about republicans not being in control of the Senate. :rolleyes:

    When ole Spencer starts carping about career squishy sellouts like Snowe, Collins, Graham and McQuisling, then his babblings might become relevant.

    :cuckoo:

    Bachus is a dork. And, more to the point, he's wrong.

    But for the TEA PARTY movement, it is clear that the GOP would not have had as much success in the midterms as they had. They likely would not have taken all the Senate seats they did take. If there was a trade-off -- in running candidates like Angle and O'Donnell -- that's fine by me.

    But on balance, it is evident to most thinking people that there was a net GAIN in the Senate for the GOP precisely because the Tea Party movement fostered the ramping-up of a very justifiably disgruntled electorate.
