Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry will announce his retirement sometime today. He is now the sixth Democratic House member not running in 2010. Berry joins fellow Arkansas Rep. Vic Snyder who also announced that he would not seek re-election.
At this rate will there be any Democrats left to vote out? I am sure in the coming months we will be seeing more Democrats taking the easy way out, rather than face the blistering anger from the electorate.
On the bright side, with each announcement not to see re-election, the Republicans get one step closer acquiring the 40 seats needed to gain control of the House. I sincerely hope that as Republicans approach that magic number the do some serious soul searching and begin figuring out whom they want as leadership. Quite frankly, I am not so sure John Boehner is the man for the job.
