With the first unofficial midterm elections over, Obama has received a resounding smackdown. Many pundits, myself included, think that yesterday's election was the first opportunity for voters to voice their displeasure with Obama and the Democrats' mishandling of the country. Chris Christie won the governors' race in New Jersey. Virginia rediscovered the joys of Republicanism in their gubernatorial race with a win by Bob McDonnell.
Although the Democrat won in New York's 23rd district, a message was sent to the national GOP: only fiscal conservatives need apply. Dede Scozzafava's endorsement of the Democrat in that race shows why she was a poor pick for conservatives in the area. She was just a Democrat, as her endorsement of liberal policies proved. How she wound up as the Republican is a mystery to a lot of folks. Perhaps the national GOP will remember who endorsed her and actually offer up some genuine fiscal conservatives in the future.
Naturally, Dems will disregard any win by Republicans as something far less than it is. Look forward to the spin machine running at full speed in an attempt to minimize the damage to liberals and their agenda to destroy the country.
