Beyond Being Out of Touch

The big political news of Tuesday was the major Republican upset for the seat of scandal ridden former Congressman Anthony Weiner in the heavily Democrat NYC district that has never sent a Republican to the Congress in its nearly 100 year history.

What makes this story even more significant is that Bob Turner, the novice Republican, was opposed by a career politician who was backed by heavy duty financial support by the DNC.  Despite the odds presented by a congressional district where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by a 3:1 margin, this stunning defeat for the Democrat party is a clear rebuke of Obama policies.

So, how do you save face when confronted by such a rebuke?  If you are the Obama White House, you claim that your candidate lost the election because he ran away from Obama policies.  And then, you have the president say "Americans reject Tea Party ideals". 

The spin is so hard that I am getting dizzy.  I am glad that the President and his party think that way.  In less than 14 months, the electorate will be running away from the progressive bunch whose elitist delusions are blinding them to reality of their policies.  This is not the 1930s anymore.  Americans will not re-elect those responsible for creating unparalleled poverty and misery since the Great Depression.
