THE DEMOCRATIC FRONTRUNNERS TURN CHICKEN!
Democrats: Time To Panic!
What could be worse for the party in power? The president's polls, the Democrats trying to gather support for health care reform, or the fact that members of their party are retiring!
With prominent Democrat retirings, the Republicans want to seize opportunity to retake the Congress.
Senators Chris Dodd (D-Connecticut), Bryon Dorgan (D-North Dakota), Governor Bill Ritter (D-Colorado), Congressman Bart Gordon (D-Tennessee), Congressman Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii), Congressman Brian Baird (D-Washington), Congressman John Tanner (D-Tennessee), Congressman Dennis Moore (D-Kansas), and Robert Wexler (D-Florida) are leaving the political spotlight.
Congressman Parker Griffith of Alabama, is now a Republican. The congressman switched parties after criticizing the Democratic agenda in December 2009. More misfortunes trouble Democrats. The ailing Senator Robert Byrd (D-West Virginia) is not appearing for role call, and Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Connecticut) is a thorn in the Democratic agenda.
The Democratic Party is fearing the political tidal wave of anger from supporters and critics. Right now, Republicans feel the momentum of the tea party protests, the resentment of government spending and the economic woes as a ticket to victory.
Although, most of the problems solely rest on the former President George W. Bush's doorstep, a slew of conservative activists (ranging from Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Matt Drudge, Michelle Malkin, RedState, Fox News, WorldNetDaily, Newsmax, etc.) will continue to press their agenda to the Republicans and then to the masses.
President Obama's job approvals are in the low 50s and some are in the high 40s. That's not good. Some of the problems do reside with reasonable concerns (federal spending, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, high unemployment, economic woes, and lack of interest), the sole reasons for Republican rage is basically racism. And it's so blatant, I even went as far to make a video criticizing the conservatives running around with this "Socialist" crap.
What's your take on the issues?
