A very good day indeed.
For the 2nd time in history, the GOP swept Virginia's statewide races, picking up Governor, Lt. Governor, and Attorney General.
But the biggest story of all is Republican Chris Christie's win as Governor in New Jersey over Gov. Corzine. Unbelievable. Pres. Obama went all out for Corzine.... and this is NEW JERSEY! A blue state and Corzine with more money than you or I could count.
The pundits can argue whether this is a referundum on Obama. I don't care. I'm just glad for good men/women to win.
Honestly, I think Americans are uncomfortable when either party has too much power. With that in mind, 2010 looks good for the GOP.
Also good news, buzz on the hill is that Democrats are saying there will be no Health Care Bill this year. The fight continues in 2010.
Update: I was going to write a separate post on the NY-23 race, but since so many libs here are going with the talking point that this district has been Republican since cave men times and what a loss this is for us, I thought I should address it here because, honestly, you guys don't have a clue.
Let's go back to my post last week on NY-23, which was probably the first you had heard about it. I wrote:
"People like Newt say that splitting our votes will only give the victory to the Democrat, Bill Owens. Maybe. But maybe the Republican establishment will realize if they don't back real conservatives, they LOSE. We just aren't going to take it anymore. If that means we lose a few races to prove our point, then fine. We may lose the battles, but we will sure as hell will win this war within our own party."
This district may have been Republican, but it wasn't conservative. Only LIBERAL Republicans have been elected there. What good are liberal Republicans? They don't vote with us, they vote with the Democrats. It's pathetic and we are going to put a stop to it.
We were totally vindicated with this. The Republican Scozzafava turned out to be the backstabbing betrayer we knew she would be. On the day she quit she says she will be forever a loyal Republican, and 48 hours later she switches to being a Democrat.
A better "I told you so" to the RNC could not have happened.
Here was this no name nerdy CPA with no political experience and no charisma AND running on a 3rd party ticket and he almost won??? Incredible.
Imagine if the RNC had picked someone ready to be a candidate. Imagine if they had run a conservative like that, and thrown $900,000 at him like they did Scozzafava. Imagine that, and you have a winner.
This was a message to our party. We didn't expect to win. We are amazed this guy go so close, especially since the Democrat was a goodlooking charasmatic guy whose Republican opponent BACKED him in the race.
Come on. Don't let you partisanship blind you from the truth of this.
Like I said in my post at the beginning, we will lose some of the battles, but we sure as hell are going to win this war in our party.
We are the party of Reagan. When we act like it, we win. The RNC is going to learn that.....or they lose.
Oh, and one more thing. For those who think this was telling of Palin. Yeah. She took this guy from 13% to 46% in a few weeks.
I have to add this too. Obama did get a win last night. Since he is against same sex marriage, he won in Maine. So..there is that...;-)
