Looks Like a Turnaround
We’ll hear all sorts of contradictory analyses, in the days to come, among which will be assurances that there are no broad conclusions to be drawn, but key votes up and down the East Coast, yesterday, certainly don’t disprove the notion of a turnaround toward our nation’s Republican, conservative strain:
- Republican Chris Christie took the New Jersey governor seat from Democrat Jon Corzine.
- Republican Bob McDonnell took the Virginia governor seat from Democrat Creigh Deeds.
- Democrat Bill Owens narrowly won a New York Congressional District race, with 49% of the vote, against Conservative Doug Hoffman’s 46% and RINO Dierdre Scozzafava’s 6%. Had the Republicans not gone with the “Republican who can win” and attacked the Conservative, it isn’t unreasonable to suggest that they would have won that race, too.
- Voters in Maine nullified the legislature’s imposition of same-sex marriage, for the state, making it the 31st of 31 states in which the people have affirmed the traditional definition of marriage, regardless of the imperious maneuverings of judges and votes bought by ultrarich left-wing activists.
Actually, looking at that last bullet point, it mightn’t be accurate to characterize the national results as “a turnaround.” After all, President Obama supported traditional marriage, as a candidate, and ran overall as a centrist, even a fiscal conservative in some fevered minds. If there’s a lesson in this for the president, it’s probably that the people of the United States of America have figured out that he lied.
