Rooting for economic failure

Finally, a Republican brave enough to speak the truth – we are rooting against the economy. (I am paraphrasing. Click on the video below.)

Conservatives have made their position extremely clear. They have stated their position in multiple different ways. You have Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stating that his number one priority was to prevent President Obama from having a second term. We know that leading Republicans met in an exclusive Washington DC restaurant on the day of Barack Obama’s inauguration and decided that their number one priority would be to oppose the president on every front. Their priority was not to negotiate to help the country. Their priority was not to try to push the agenda to be more conservative. Instead, their agenda was to oppose anything the president proposed, whether is was good for the country or not. Finally, we know that this “new breed” of conservatives have no interest in compromise. They were willing to bring down the government and our economy over the debt ceiling debate. There were willing to have the government default in order to make a point. Therefore, it is not that hard to imagine that Republicans are actively rooting for the economy to fail.

Chambliss wins

This was a race that the Dems weren’t all that whipped-up about. Democrats needed a great candidate and Jim Martin wasn’t it. Saxby Chambliss has won. This doesn’t mean that Barack Obama doesn’t have coattails and it doesn’t mean that the country is leaning back(wards) to the right. It means that we are all tired of Election 2008 and that Georgia has a long way to go before it turns even a slight shade of blue.

BTW, Al Franken, in the race that will never end, has picked up 37 votes.

From AP:

Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss won re-election Tuesday in a runoff, dashing Democrats’ hopes of capturing enough seats in the U.S. Senate to thwart Republican filibusters.

Chambliss’ election to a second term gives the GOP a firewall against Democrats eager to flex their newfound political muscle in Washington. The monthlong runoff battle against Democrat Jim Martin captured the national limelight, drawing political luminaries from both parties to the state and flooding the airwaves with fresh attack ads.

Minnesota — where a recount is under way — now remains the only unresolved Senate contest in the country. With 92 percent of the recount completed, the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s tally had Republican Norm Coleman leading Democrat Al Franken by 340 votes, with nearly 6,000 ballots challenged.  (more… )
