All Politics Are Local ... Except When They're Not

The Governorships of Virginia and New Jersey have passed on to the Republican Party, and already the spin-meisters on the left are trying to downplay the election results.

Very interesting that even though all the President's men, as well as our CEO and Chief campaigned for the Democratic losers in these states, the WH and media are proclaiming that this was not a referendum on President Obama's policies. They claim that Tip O'Neill was correct when he stated that "all politics is local".

Actually, except for the grammar, the former speaker was correct in his assumption. The problem for the Democrats is that the policies of the sitting President effect the ENTIRE NATION. So we now have 50 local states that are hurting. This does not bode well for the Democrats in the 2010 mid-term elections. This also does not bode well for the President's Health Care over-haul. Democrats in conservative districts will be running as far away from any new administration policy in the hope of saving their jobs next November (remember ... every seat in the House is up for re-election next year).

Republicans, don't start feeling too happy with yourselves just yet. The policies of the previous administration, along with the spend-thrift ways of the GOP-led Congress helped get us into this predicament. Republicans can't be seen as just politicians that oppose everything that the Democrats try to do. They must have their own plans for bringing this Nation back to prosperity, based upon Conservative economic principles. Right now the GOP has a chance to win back the support of the Nation ... but I fear that they will just waste it as usual. We need a new "Contract with America". Where is the next Newt Gingrich?

Nice blog. Adding you to my blogroll and don't be a stranger.

The fact is that as much as libs gloat over the recent democrat takeover, it isn't going to last long. Obama said the right things at the right time, offering tear jerking speeches of change at a time when our country was in crisis. That honeymoon is over, as his approval ratings have swan dove in the past 10 months like I've never seen before, and the democrat congress is somewhere around 21%. Everyone is wondering exactly what it is they voted for.

You are right about what got us into this situation, Republicans in name only, acting like liberals, crossing the isle,...

We should not get too excited, because a lot can happen between now and the next elections. I am encouraged that so many independents turned their backs on Obama and voted Republican.

Paul, Great post and it looks like you are wondering the same thing many of us are asking where is the next Ronald Reagan????We sure need one, I was looking at knute,,,but he showed his colors without investigaing the same as the RNC,,,,That doesn't flush....stay well....

highboy said...

The closest thing to a great conservative in my view would Ron Paul, but he's still a relatively unknown politician in today's society.

I wonder how many people Bush campaigned for during his first term? And look what happened there, he was re-elected but republican candidates for congress weren’t.
