Tuesday is a turning point ...
The backlash begins Tuesday November 3rd, 2009 ! That is the day that average, hard working, tax-paying Americans begin to take their country back ! Virginia and New Jersey appear ready to replace Democrat Governors with Republican fiscal conservatives. In the special election in New York's 23rd congressional district to replace Rep. John McHugh, who was named secretary of the Army, it now appears to be moving to the Conservative party candidate in the race, Doug Hoffman. If these races go the way the latest polls indicate they are trending, it will be a "watershed" election, the "beginning of the end" of the Democrat's brief time as the majority party in Congress.
I have been predicting for at least 6 months that the Republican's have a good shot at picking up the 40 seats needed in the 2010 congressional-elections to regain control of the House of Representatives. A sweep on Tuesday in the bellwether "off-year" elections would be a good start towards regaining the majority in the House next year.
It's a classic case of the party that was out of power regaining the majority and over-reaching once back in power. Obama tried to change too much the first 6-8 months of his administration, and it appears to have backfired. His smooth campaign rhetoric had reassured voters, but his radical socialist agenda once in office has snapped them back to their senses. Voters are now paying closer attention to Obama's "actions" instead of his words. And they are scared. Scared for our country, it's traditions and our values.
Tuesday they will begin the process of trying to undo the significant damage that socialist Barrack Hussein Obama has done in less than a year in office. It's amazing how much damage the Democrat's have been able to do in such a short amount of time, thanks to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid. But Tuesday is just the beginning. Republicans must produce good candidates next year in the congressional elections and then govern responsibly to regain the public's trust.
