2010 Mid-term Election Series
Just as the election of 2008 was about change….so was the 2010 mid-terms…the American people impatiently wanted change and did not get it quick enough and they once again voted for change…..will they be disappointed yet again…..you bet your butt they will!
If you are a Repub I would not be thumping my chest like some sex crazed primate…..why? As pollster Charlie Cook has said…..the GOP were not winners, but rather beneficiaries…….the people did not vote for them in particular, but rather voted against the ones in power at the time……
So….what can we expect from the new Congress in January of 2011? They will work 3 days a week and spend the other four raising money for their next election….they will work about 14 months total in that 2 year time frame…they will spend time on their knees in front of special interests begging for cash……so far not much change has come with the new crop of veggies…..
Today’s vote shows such promise, but the promise that the 2008 election showed was just the typical illusion of American political activity. After the voting there will be the same song and a slightly altered dance in Washington….the GOP will be looking at 2012 and the general election….so the politics will be about securing a win for the GOP and the country will just have to wait another two years for it to be important anough for actions coming out of Washington.
If you think the the last two years have been silly or absurd……then you will just love the next years for partisanship and obstructionism will be all the rage…..the only difference will be that the Dems will have someone they can actually run against…..John Boehner and his colleagues foolish promises will they push….it will be intersting to see how many jobs the GOP can pull out of its butt….
As I have said….”Here we go again”!
