Dear Republicans – Please Dust Yourselves Off and Get Back in the Fight

Four years ago the Republican Party entered a self imposed funk. Much like they are in now.

So we didn’t knock off an incumbent president. That’s a shame. A crying shame.

But the time for crying is over. Now it’s time to buck up and assess where we are. It seems pretty dark, but we are a long way ahead of where we were in 2008.

Remember Nancy Pelosi? She was the Queen of the House.

She lost the House.

Remember Al Franken? After the Democrats “tweaked” the votes in Minnesota, this moron became the Democrat that negated the filibuster. Vote #60.

And Barack Obama was president.

Obama is till president. (Unfortunately.) That is no different.

But Republicans are the majority in the House and for now, the filibuster is in play in the Senate – although Harry Reid now wants to change the rules.

This is Obama’s final term. He is officially a lame duck.

And if you live in Virginia, we have a very important task ahead in 2013. The Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General will be up for grabs in November. Carpetbagger Terry McAuliffe has announced for the Democrats and Lt. Governor Bill Bolling and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will be running for the Republican nod. And with the Virginia Senate split 20 – 20 the Lt. Governor will be deciding on ties, so that is one of the most important races we will have, at least as important as the Governorship.

And with so many mandates coming from the Obama second term bypassing the Republican controlled US House, the job of Attorney General will be busy in court trying to protect the Constitution.

And all 100 seats in the Virginia House of Delegates are up for election in 2013.

Republicans simply don’t have the luxury of a self absorbed pity party in 2013. So grab some turkey, swill some Wassel, watch some football and let’s get back up on the horse.

Whatever happens in Washington is going to happen. But what happens in Virginia is still up in the air.

And let’s not forget that Mark Warner’s term as Senator expires. He needs to go. We will have another opportunity to win seats and sit Harry Reid down in 2014.

We have a lot of continuing work to do. We are ahead of where we were in 2008, although we are not where we wanted to be.

But we have a lot of work ahead. The good news is that we now have some pretty amazing ground forces in place. Some were Romney teams, but many were not. Our ground game is well ahead of where we were in 2009 in Virginia.

And one thing we have going for us is that we are well aware that Obama is not working. Over the next 4 years that fact will become inescapable, no matter how hard the press tries to hide it. Blaming Bush will cease to work. And we face some really hard economic times.

That will make it easier to win elections. The truth eventually comes out and is impossible to disguise.

We can’t see it yeat because things are going to get darker in the immediate future. But in that darkness, we will find the light.

    I sure hope they got the right message from this election, and it’s not that they need to be more like the Democrats or that they need to pander with a candidate of Hispanic descent. They need to offer a clear distinction between the two parties and stop being afraid to defend conservative ideas. The truth is on our side.

    Obviously, the gigantic hole existing in the Constitutional Republic as the founders designed it, just got much much bigger. Which means we have not hit bottom yet and things are about to get VERY VERY messy b/c at least 50% of the population woke up Weds morning to the reality that everybody is going to be getting VERY uncomfortable in the next few years. And that it is going to be a VERY bumpy ride to the bottom. Buckle up my fellow Patriots, this is going to be a Dog-Fight!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
