The stats are in and according to this, the left isn’t fairing too well. My question is why considering the fringe element that is at the front of the Republican party.
We have the Tea Party, libertarians and Conservatives which include Sarah Palin, who is the fringe element. President Obama will probably go down in history as one of the greatest orators of our time as she goes down as the worst. Ex-half term Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin is pimping herself out by endorsing candidates most Conservatives in private would not justify as being legitimate leaders in any way shape or form.
FiveThirtyEight’s projection for the U.S. House shows little change from last week. Republicans are given a 73 percent chance of taking over the House, up incrementally from 72 percent last week. During an average simulation run, Republicans finished with 227 seats, up from 226 last week; this would suggest a net gain of 48 seats from the 179 they hold currently.
However, there is considerable uncertainty in the forecast because of the unusually large number of House seats now in play. A gain of as large as 70-80 seats is not completely out of the question if everything broke right for Republicans. Conversely, if Democrats managed to see a material rebound in their national standing over the final two weeks of the campaign, they could lose as few as 20-30 seats, as relatively few individual districts are certain pickups for Republicans.
Here’s the worse news. So far, 35 of her endorsements are tied to the Tea Party. She’s endorsed the very worst of the fringe element, such as Michele Bachmann and Sharron Angle. Why is Palin backing so many politicians if she did indeed quit her governorship of Alaska to ‘be with her family’? She said she did it for Alaska.
It’s a possibility that this is more political posturing to enforce a win for the presidency. If this doesn’t scare the #hit out of fellow leftists, I can’t fathom what will. Our party is not the party that accepts just anything out politicians do. We hold them accountable. That said, President Obama’s “Buck Up” speech didn’t go down too well on the left, and the right took advantage of our reaction to insinuate a weakness.
I get it. We don’t like being barked at by our elected officials, but do you want our country led by President Sarah Palin? If that title before her name doesn’t scare the hell out of you, then we should give up, relax and let the country be run by a hoard of Tea Partiers who want, teeny tiny government, no public schools, no medicaid, or social security and hell, why have public roads either? Let’s just drive down dirt paths before we take the TARDIS back in time so that we can then say hello to 1776 all over again!
Doesn’t that sound patriotic? We could continue their version of patriotism and just go full wingnut by taking down the American flag and flying the Confederate flag, after all, Republicans are the only people that condone the disgrace and insult the Confederate flag represents.
