A little foreshadowing was very evident from yesterday’s primaries. Even Barack Obama didn’t bother to follow the progress because he knew what the outcome would be. The GOP was victorious in the states of Virginia and New Jersey for governor. These are the two states the president campaigned rigorously for the Democrat incumbents and failed miserably. Even though the GOP narrowly won in the 23rd Congressional District of New York State, the narrow win would have been realized if the GOP didn’t screw it up by putting a RHINO as their pick. The lack of understanding on the GOP’s part that Conservatism is alive and well is beyond me.
By picking RHINO’s to represent Conservative Republicans got us in this predicament in the first place. Polls have shown that 44% of American views themselves as Conservative, 20% Liberal, and 30% Moderate. I can’t find any studies/poll to show that this country wants to follow the socialist views of Barack Obama. In fact, I would not be surprise if any members of Congress start distancing themselves from an unpopular president when they come up for re-election.
Liberal Democrats on Capitol Hill should be shaking in their boots. Let these primaries show that what ever they do in the next few months will dictate how the American public will vote in next year Congressional and Senatorial elections. The fanfare of Barack Obama has past its peak and it is going to be a downward side from this point on. I can’t believe how 10 months made all the difference to wake America up.
