Where to begin. My postings are way down because I am making sure I keep my contracts alive and have an income in this wonderful economy the Democrats have created.
But more than that, a malaise has set in that I wager is spreading throughout the country. A realization this sucky situation is not going to change because the Democrats are still in deep, deep denial – except they are scared to death of allowing the cost cutting the conservatives and Tea Party masses want passed. They know (subconsciously) if conservative reforms passed and the economy turned, the verdict on liberal, big-government-only solutions would be in.
Of course, they are naive to think delay will help them. It only digs the hole deeper, creates deeper and broader frustration in the electorate with their dug-in ignorance. By waiting until 2012 for whole sale replacement of Democrat control of the federal government, they only increase the penalty for their mistakes.
So the playing field is set and it is stalemate. No one is willing to go back to the mad spending of Obama, Reid and Pelosi – so kiss that plan goodbye for 2012. All you need to know is Obama is somewhere between 41-44% for reelection in PA to realize he has very little chance of a second term. PA is a swing, light blue state that the GOP has had trouble winning in the past. If Obama is low 40’s there, he has no realistic path to winning 2012. And I doubt he can gain support from here to November 2012.
So, we wait and hope the GOP can find a candidate from outside the beltway and not pushed by the party’s DC establishment (i.e., fuggatabowdit Mitt). Someone aligned with the Libertarian streak now running from left of center to the right of center and feeding the Tea Party movement. We need to dismantle government. There is no other priority out there.
And stay away from government run health care, bailouts, targeted tax cuts and the fantasy of man-made global warming cult. Those are now the new 3rd rails of politics.
