Yesterday’s Primaries Signal the End for Progressive Democrats

The Tea Party smoked in Nevada and the Progressives smoldered in Arkansas. Blanche Lincoln (D-AK) defeated the Progressive’s choice who was backed by $10 Million in Union money. Lt. Gov. Bill Halter’s massive influx of money was not enough to overcome even Democrats disdain for the Progressive failures forced on the citizens of the country.

High, sustained unemployment and more debt than we can ever repay has angered the voters. The people of Arkansas showed that the only thing they like less than a Democrat that has lead to this economic crisis are the Progressives that put us in this mess.

While the Mainstream Media tries to focus in on voter anger at incumbents, the Arkansas results make it clear that the anger aimed at incumbents is directed at anyone that has voted for Tarp, bailouts, and the wasteful spending going on in D.C. The Republicans that resisted are safe.

America is anxious to restore fiscal sanity and controls on the runaway spending. Gridlock is a welcome thing.

Lincoln will feel the voter’s ire in November as she ends her political career.

    Wasn’t Bill Halter to the right of Blanche Lincoln on most issues (save Health Care)?

      According to the lefty blogs, this election was supposed to show that the people are angry with Lincoln for being such a moderate. That Halter was a true Progressive and his victory would show the country that we need to spend more money and give away more free stuff to be prosperous. Check with the Kool-Aid swilling and very delusional “Richmonder”. His blog says it all.

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