Look, I know all of you Republicans out there are sick to death with what is going on with this country. The reason I know this is because I, as a fellow Republican, feel the same.
However, I started looking at things a little differently lately and I found that I don't feel so bad about the predicament we are in.
Sure, the Dems run the WHOLE GOVERNMENT. Sure, they now have the Super Majority in the Senate so they need not fear any GOP filibuster. Sure Obama is quickly enacting his socialist agenda and probably can't be stopped until much later down the road.
Admittedly, those are all very good reasons to be depressed if you are a Republican or Conservative or both.
However, look at it this way. Now that the Dems control everything, they can no longer blame what's wrong in this country on anyone else.
How long do you think the American people are going to fall for the "it's Bush's fault" argument? Not very long. They might get another 3-5 months out of that one but it is becoming painfully clear that the Dems have become drunk with power, Obama included, and are over-reaching by a huge margin.
American will start to get real tired of hearing them say the recovery is right around the corner and not see any evidence to support that claim. Now they are saying it's 2 years away. When did that change?
Anyway, it is going to be impossible for Dems running for office in the next few years to blame anything on the GOP. That means they will most likely turn on each other.
You'll start to hear things like" Sure, my opponent is a Democrat like me but he is much more conservative/liberal than I am". Just wait and see...it's coming.
So, I suggest that you get involved and start working at the grass roots level to start grooming candidates for future elections. Sit back and gather the ammo that the Dems are sure to hand us as they drive this country into the toilet.
You just know that Al Franken is going to say something stupid. It's only a matter of time. He can't help it. The pressure on him will be too much and he'll break.
Nancy Pelosi is less popular than Dick Cheney. Clearly, she is in deep trouble. She has powerful allies in The House but she'll fall eventually.
Remember, they can't blame anyone else for the angst that future voters will have and are now beginning to feel. They will only have themselves to blame.
The question I have though is this: at what point will the media jump off the Obama boat?
