The signs are there. The news is very good for conservatives trying to win back control of our country.
Dozens of House Democrats are facing tough reelection campaigns next year according to Charlie Cook the respected political analyst. Cook’s “Frontline” list of Democrats in reelection trouble even includes some who often run unopposed.
Veteran Democrats like John Spratt SC, John Tanner Tenn. and others who had no opponent last year could be out of office next November; so could South Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan who is trailing his Republican successor by 19 points!
Seeing the light; hearing footsteps
Frightened Democrats are scrambling to distance themselves from Barack Obama in desperate hopes they’ll be spared in the coming political tsunami.
Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton, whom Cook has identified as endangered, has demanded AG Holder explains his decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in federal court citing his “many serious questions.”
New York freshman Eric Massa who bragged to leftwing lunatics he would vote for Pelosicare and against the will of his district lost his nerve and voted “No” after testing the wind.
Dennis Moore of Kansas has announced he will not run in 2010 preferring retirement to defeat.
“Beyond Radio Active”
Cook is so certain November 2010 will see the end of Democrat rule in the House he uses the type of language which ordinarily is scoffed at as “hyperbole” in polite Washington circles. He says Barack Obama will do so much damage to more than 40 Democrats he is “Beyond Radio Active” for them.
While at least 18 vulnerable House Democrats have voted for either the Cap and Trade bill or the Pelosi Healthcare bill, 17 voted for both of these monstrosities and are now virtually dead meat. The Democrats are seeing the light and hearing the footsteps.
Good news in the numbers
We need to pick up 35 seats in the House to win control. We need 10 pick ups in the Senate to gain control. It is quickly becoming apparent that both goals are attainable, the House a bit easier but nevertheless, both Houses can be taken. Will you work to get these things done, or sit and watch?
It is for this reason we must stand and deliver for our own freedoms. As difficult as taking on this fight as a “part time job” may be, each of us has to resolve to step up and give everything we can to this fight.
Get educated. Know the facts and engage people in conversation about the issues that will mean the life or death of our liberties and our nation. If you don’t assume this fight as a personal mission think again. If YOU don’t fight for yourself who will fight for you?
I’m fighting as hard as I can, but everyone who loves freedom has to join in and lend a hand. Those of us who are fighting can’t do it alone.
What have you done to defend American freedoms today?
