Does it look like the Dems have made such a mess of things, all of their dastardly plans are crashing down around them? Dem congressmen are jumping ship like rats, and the 2010 election looks like a huge blowout for the Republicans?
Don’t get overconfident. Things may look good for us now, but things can change quickly, and always remember; Dems don’t play fair, they will lie, cheat, steal and throw their grandmas under the bus in order gain or retain power.
Pamela Geller, writing for Big Government, thinks she’s got a handle on what they are up to, now:
Many capitalists, freedom lovers and individualists are gleeful about all of the early retirements of statists and crooks in the Democrat party. Rats bolt a sinking ship. They believe this indicates victory. It does not. While Republicans are rubbing their hands in glee at the sheer number of Democrat incumbents not running for re-election, I am not.
It is often said if the Democrats are the vicious party, the Republicans are the stupid party. What the Republicans lack in malevolence, they try to make up for with earnestness. But make no mistake: the Democrats never back down, never give up, never give in. They don’t. They are pit bulls. And while the Democrats are devoid of good ideas and good governance, they excel in abhorrent and detestable tactics in winning. They work by stealth.
And in this case, the retirements don’t indicate defeat. They indicate a new Democrat strategy. The retirements are part of a plan: everyone under the bus for the good of the party and the socialist state it is constructing. The Democrat strategy for 2010 is to make the failure of Barack Obama and the Pelosi/Reid Congress all about the incumbents, not the party itself. They are going to make the failure of this Administration about the candidates, not the party, when in fact it is party, party, party. Take the rancid Dodd, for example. He will be replaced with an attractive statist who does not have the ugly history of Dodd’s graft, corruption and racketeering, but who shares Dodd’s collectivist bent.
I expect the Democrats to pull their moderate ruse again by throwing up bunches of blue dogs to con the people. Then they will continue to ramrod the American people with their collectivist, statist agenda. They will run new faces without records that are soiled by the horrendous anti-American, anti-business, anti-national security, anti-individual, anti-small government, anti-tax cut record of the Democrats — and they will sucker the American people, yet again.
I expressed my own concerns about the Democrats’ odd, and incongruous overconfidence, here and here. I hope we’re wrong. I really do. But if the Dems do try to pull these ruses, the Republican message for 2010, and 2012 should be: Don’t get fooled, again.
