I have to tell you that the news that Webb won in VA is sickening. Hopefully all the horney military women will not have to face this man too often. And to those like the caller I heard call in on a radio show and say he voted straight Dem because Reps did not give him enough conservative policies fast enough I have to ask ‘how dumb can you be?” Blogging may be light because I am waiting to see if the Dems start to open up with the investigations. But I also cannot help but be sickened by the response from the right. I said a year ago this race was impeachment vs the war on terror. But somehow the right decided it was about hispanics working in the US illegally – and the war on terror took a back seat. Like I said – we needed those ‘legal’ immigrant votes (also known as naturalized citizens). Threatening to round up their friends and neighbors was probably not the best way to impress them.
I like the ‘No Child Left Behind’ Bill because now we test the schools and require them to perform. I like the tax breaks because the economy is growing. I liked the fact Bin Laden cannot coordinate attacks on us over the phone – again (it is important to note that was key to 9-11). And now they are at risk. All Bush has left now is his veto. But if the Reps feel like punishing him for their mistakes, we will be the ones paying the price.
If I read one more RINO comment or ‘squishey’ middle tirade out of the right I will go back to being a democrat. I dare any conservative to match my passion and my optimism. But I see no reason to ally myself with insulting sore losers. We have sore winners who are painful enough to deal with. Why do we need sore losers as well? The right better slow down and take a deep breathe. Bush is still trying to win the war and hold the line. If you stab him in the back from the safety of the peanut gallery, all you will do is set up the Dems for 2008. The country rejected the right this week because it went too far. If the response is to call them dumb, then they will feel VINDICATED in giving the Reps the boot – and they will be a long time coming back again. Can we keep it civil? Or is the Republican talking establishment trying to see what depths they can plumb in defeat? Please. Stop blaming everyone because the right failed. The right failed because it failed. When the right is on the proper path and drawing support it wins despite the media, despite the liberal slander machine. Iraq is not the reason the Reps are out of office. The country has never once been for cut and run, and even the Dems knew to never vote for it. Insulting those you disagree with is not a winning strategy. You want votes? Try not insulting the voters and see what happens. I have the feeling it just might work better.
