Hell Bent To Lose

The Democratic party is in the process of losing the November election, and the 2008 presidential election as well.

I know that flies in the face of the conventional wisdom as expressed in the Washington Post that there are a "Growing Number of GOP Seats In Doubt" for the November election.

GOP strategists worry that with approval ratings for President Bush and congressional Republicans at a low ebb, they could lose even their traditional military-dominated suburbs such as Virginia Beach.

What they aren't factoring though, is the Democratic party's rush to liberal-land suicide.

Governing is setting priorities and working on those priorities.

According to polls, the top two priorities of the voting public are the handling of post-invasion Iraq and illegal immigration. Iraq, while a thorny and divisive issue, has no clear-cut answers. The assault on our nation's borders, language and culture strikes at the very heart of every voting citizen's daily life and well-being, and for the majority the priorities seem clear-cut.

Yet the Democrats are going hell-bent-for-leather to support amnesty for illegal aliens as a priority, even before solving our porous southern border problem. They balk at making English the official language of the country. They call racist anyone who disadvantages the illegal alien, even if it places a heavy burden on the taxpayer.

The voting public wants to see a "U.S. Citizens First" party, and in my opinion by failing to see this, Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass), Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and their ilk are leading the Democrats down the well-worn path of defeat.

Good post. I have concerns about the outcome of the midterm elections. Politicians are all alike; they like to mouth off. The
Republicans are vulnerable but
that does not make it a walkover for the Democrats. If they fail to
feel the pulse of the nation they will pay the price.

Musafir, Thanks for the nice comment. Although I was until recently a "yellow dog".... I am now disgusted by all the pols in D.C. Bush and his mob are leading us to ruin, and the Dems just don't seem to have a clue. In November it is the Dems to lose, and I'm sure they are quite capable of doing so.

In my youth, we used to laugh at the Soviets’ sham elections because only Communist Party members were permitted on their ballots, while we had a choice between two major ideologically distinct parties, and several minor ones. At this point however, I truly fail to see any difference. We effectively have one Incumbrepublocrat Party. It consists of two caucuses with little allegiance to any coherent ideology; each representing several loosely cobbled together self-interest groups, all competing for government largess. They have rather minor disagreements over how much of our earnings to confiscate, and where best to spend them to buy reelection votes, and make a lot of perplexing partisan racket in the process, but they always agree to do whatever it takes to keep the system rigged for incumbents.
