Power Trip

May 4, 2009

If this isn’t an example of a major “power trip” I don’t know what is. Dem’s “own” the country now? What? Uh…this borders on slightly delusional.  Sorry, this just makes me feel as if shackles are on my hands and ankles reading this. This is just getting way out of hand and honestly bordering on extreme.  To be this cocky and think a entire group will just disappear after just almost over three months is just plain naive.  This is turning a whole lot of people off:


 The national GOP is effectively dead (4+ / 0-)

I mean, look at the fool that they elected as chairman. The national party is a joke and everybody knows it. Teabagging parties?!? Sarah Palin? Hannity and Limbaugh and Joe the plumber as their spokesmorons? Are they freaking kidding me?!?!?

Clearly, they’re in rebuilding mode, and usually that means going back to the states and even cities. And with as talented a president as Obama, Dems much more popular right now, and all the things that they’re likely to pass over the next few years that are likely to please most of the country, there’s almost no way, short of a national security or political disaster, for them to make a comeback for at least another 5 years, and probably longer. Dems own the country now and smart Repubs know it. And nearly all of them are at the state and local level, and will keep a relatively low profile while slowly building a viable record and appealing public image, and attempt a comeback in either the ’14 midterms of the ’16 presidential election (a la ’66 and ’68).

It’s all a neverending chess game (2D, thank you), and right now Obama and Dems are its masters. If Repubs are smart, they’ll do the above. If not, they’re gone in 5 years, like the Whigs. And at this rate, it’s not that far-fetched. If they implode, Repubs like Huntsman, Snowe, Collins, Crist, etc., will bolt and form a third party with the likes of Lieberman, Nelson and Landrieu, and perhaps Specter, and let the wingnuts self-destruct. I’d almost give it even odds at this point.
