Music to my ears: Dems could face double digit losses in 2010

From Politico:

After an August recess marked by raucous town halls, troubling polling data and widespread anecdotal evidence of a volatile electorate, the small universe of political analysts who closely follow House races is predicting moderate to heavy Democratic losses in 2010.

Some of the most prominent and respected handicappers can now envision an election in which Democrats suffer double-digit losses in the House — not enough to provide the 40 seats necessary to return the GOP to power but enough to put them within striking distance.

No surprise here. The Democrats are living out almost every stereotype conservatives have ever uttered about them. Elitists – check, spend thrifts – check, tax hikers – check, closet communists – check and on and on they go.

I never thought Americans elected the Democrats because the nation shifted left. That is why all that earlier chatter this year about the GOP needing to move to the center was total bunk. The reason why Americans dumped the Republicans was because Americans wanted a better class of Republicans, ones who actually support conservative principles like cutting spending, lowering taxes and not supporting new dictates from Washington. The only way to get there was to usher in more Democrats, albeit temporarily.

Unless Democrats can get a hold of themselves and cut spending, reduce the alarming debt and create new private sector jobs, they are going to take a major drubbing in 2010.

Clifton, I agree: the election of Obama and more Democrats was a public gut reaction to the tanking economy, as well as the fact that politics are cyclical. Dems like to believe that the country finally realized that liberal politics are superior to conservatism -- but it isn't true.

Every once in a while the public needs to test the desirability of one party over the other; this time, they touched a hot stove and learned that it hurts. Now they are beginning to realize their mistake.

This is exactly why I am perplexed that the Democrats would come out as such hardcore leftists. At least wait until after 2010 before showing America their backsides.

But I see this administration as being so full of themselves, that they _believed_ the *Coronation* stuff. So they moved right ahead, as if it were true.

Which has to be good, in the long run. Let everyone seeeeeeeeee and feeeeeeeeel "the hot stove,' quickly. -hehhhh-

Imho that is.

That is the exact quote my mother used when I was being a hard headed little boy. You know what? She was 100% correct!

These turn of events favoring the GOP wouldn't even have been possible if Republicans would have been stupid enough to listen to people like Colin Powell and Tom Ridge. Being the Party of No has turned out to be the strategy of opportunity.

You have to give Rice some allowance. She grew up in the era of Civil Rights, thus for her there are a few less than conservative things she may be stuck on (i.e. affirmative action and Obama as first black president). Other than that there is a tremendous amount that I admire about her.

Ding, ding, ding, give the man a silver dollar! You are so right, had the GOP listen to the squishy RINOs they would be feeling as much heat as the Dems.

the Democrats won because of a very successful, steady media campaign against the Republicans. They had the money they needed to get the word out, thanks to Soros and his minions.

But times are changing and the truth is coming out. Democrats are worse than the Republicans...
