The Grand Old Party

Last night was a colossal victory for conservatism in America; a mere twelve months after the Democrats and the media declared it lifeless.

To their dismay, the voters came out in droves for the conservative movement yesterday, showing the same passion and vigor they had in August at the town hall meetings.

A blowout win in Virginia and an upset in liberal New Jersey, which had gone to Obama by some fifteen points a year ago, has laid the foundation for which conservatives can bring this country back to the right.

Bob McDonnell's campaign in Virginia largely resembled Chris Christie's own fight in New Jersey. They attracted independents and moderate Democrats by utilizing two principle themes: low taxes and job creation.

Their campaign strategy ought to be taught to every potential GOP candidate in 2010. They did not delve into social issues the way Mike Huckaphony likes to campaign to the evangelical fringe of the right. These men spoke to the voters and asked them directly if bigger government was the solution or if they might prosper being released from its iron-fisted grasp.

The Democrat Party is already busily spinning the election in their favor and downplaying its significance (Obama claiming he didn't watch, Pelosi exclaiming the left won) but do not be fooled. Theirs is a party running scared at the moment and every moderate elected official is contemplating his level of job security right now.

In the coming days and weeks, we will hear Democrats boast on the outcome in New York's 23rd congressional district. Bill Owens, a very moderate Democrat, defeated the Conservative Party's Doug Hoffman. Dede Scozzafava, an ultraliberal Republican, had picked up the nomination from the local party. Upon closer examination of her record, it turned out Owens was actually more conservative than she was. Hoffman entered the race to give the voters a real conservative choice.

Although Mr. Hoffman will not be going to Washington this year, it was a big victory for the conservative movement. 30 days ago Hoffman was an unknown, polling at 2-3%. When the residents in NY-23 started to learn more about him they gravitated towards his campaign in swarms. The shift was so powerful that Scozzafava dropped out of the race Saturday. On Monday, she held true to her roots as a Republican-in-name-only, and in the ultimate act of political pettiness, endorsed the Democrat.

Owens went on to win but this election made it clear that this is no longer the Party of John McCain, Colin Powell, and Arlen Specter. This GOP is made up of red-blooded Reaganites believing in American prosperity through lower taxes, more jobs and less government.

Do not be fooled by the likes of Pelosi, Reid, and Obama. There is panic en masse at the DNC today. The leadership in the Democrat Party knows there is no way they can push through radically liberal legislation with Bill Owens as its newest member of Congress.

Independents and moderate Dems make ours a Grand Old Party.

Congratulations to the GOP!!! I must say that our President continues to amaze me. To be so small as to comment that he did not even watch the election results is RIDICULOUS!! Isn't he our President and shouldn't he want to be up on what is happening in the United States.

Then again, isn't he the same person that tried to ban FOX from the interview with AIG. Shall I say, way to go Mr. President; or would that be way OUT!!! Adios.
