Tom Robertson at the American Thinker has some suggestions for how the Tea Party might apply its efforts to accomplish its goals:
Now that the midterm elections are over, Tea Party energy is at risk of dissipating due to the lack of a pressing goal to work towards. If the Tea Partiers are going to become a long-term, serious force, they must be willing to tackle serious problems without an immediate payoff like an election, else they risk going home and becoming a flash in the pan. This is exactly what the establishment hopes will happen. Read the rest of this entry »
I haven’t been on top of the blog for a bit, and hence have not gotten around to commenting about the 2010 elections yet. So, here goes.
The election results have been out for a while, so I’ll give them little attention. The Republicans won fairly big, and by a decent margin. The GOP now controls the House and has a good standing of the Senate. The big win was over 600 state legislature seats around the country, meaning that conservatives have had major successes in local campaigns and offices.

Well, thanks to the typical efforts of Leftists to manipulate the vote, it won’t be as bad as it should be. With advance voting taking off this year, voter fraud has already become evident. Read the rest of this entry »
Alexander Bolton at the Hill outlines five major weakness that the Democrats face in November. Well, besides the fact that they’re completely ignoring their constituents and demonizing anyone who questions them as Nazis and racists.
Democrats feel they have grabbed political momentum, but the party still faces several dangers that could wipe it out in November.
Democratic strategists and independent political experts identify roughly five stumbling blocks that the party must overcome to avert big losses: history, jobs and the economy, an apathetic base, ethics and anti-Washington sentiment.
Almost every Democratic strategist acknowledges the party will lose seats in Congress this fall. The question is whether the loss will be moderate or severe, or even enough to give Republicans control of the House.
