Yes, it’s going to be a cold lonely summer… Senator Bob Bennett R-Utah found out, and it didn’t have to go anywhere past the second ballot of the Utah State GOP delegation. Bennett was an eighteen year incumbent. The influence of the ‘Tea Party’ Patriots was definitely felt here.
It’s going to be a very tough year on incumbents. It will be hard on Republicans, but it’s shaping up to be extremely difficult for our so-called ‘moderate’ Blue Dog Democrats… the ones who had an opportunity to stand up and be counted on the critical issues which came before them, but when the time came, voted against the American people.
All over the country races are shaping up to be a Demarxist debacle, the likes of which have never before been seen in American politics. We’ve been calling it the New American Revolution. That’s what it is. It’s the American people standing up to a rogue regime which threatens our livelihoods, our families, our property, our national security and our freedom.
A quick look at some of the other races is informative. Republican turned Democrat Arlen Specter looks to lose to Democrat Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania, proving that the Democrats didn’t want any more to do with him either. John Murtha’s Pennsylvania seat may be in jeopardy after being a Democratic mainstay for 35 years. Republican Tim Burns is in strong contention for Murtha’s Senate seat.
Meanwhile, the Indiana Senate race looks to be another Republican victory in the making, with newly chosen Republican nominee Dan Coats at 51% to 36% for Democrat Brad Ellsworth, according to Rasmussen. West Virginia Democrat Representative Alan Mollohan is facing his first serious primary challenge in thirty years.
A major voting block of the Democratic party has now seriously split, with many American Jews reacting strongly to Obama’s worse than shabby treatment of Israel and his obviously anti-semitic leanings.
Along with Pennsylvania, there are three other states that have primaries on the 18th of May… Arkansas, Kentucky and Oregon. None of these races look particularly encouraging for Democrats either.
Yes, it’s going to be a very interesting year.
