It Was NOT "Just the Economy"

While in general elections are decided by the pocketbook, and there is no question that B. Hussein's Socialist Statism did not remedy the economy (nor will it, ever), it is NOT a coincidence that:

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of those who voted in today’s elections nationwide favor repeal of the national health care bill passed by congressional Democrats in March, including 48% who Strongly Favor it.

Socialist Statism and ObamaCare are both failures, and the latter feeds the former's failure. (Alliterative genius, I am, I am.)

Of the 39 House Democrats that voted AGAINST the health care bill, just 12 were re-elected on Tuesday. I believe one of them even switched parties and lost anyway.

"It's the economy, stupid".

People don't vote on health care bills and deficit reduction with 17%+ underemployment. I mean some do, but they're voting GOP regardless.

Just another reason (among a long list of reasons) that a quick return to full employment should be priority number one.

It was not "just" the economy. Yes, the economy had a major role and it may not have been such a bloodbath had the economy been good. But the dramatic overreach by the Democrats, particularly in healthcare and the arrogance with which they went about that work was stunning. Millions were angered by it and voted at least in part based on that. I can assure you Feingold lost because of his (I'm not) Listening Sessions. He treated Constitutents who disagreed with the Healthcare Bill with such disdain that he would never get their vote again. Ever.

J. Strupp said...

So Feingold lost because he wasn't being very nice to people?


Deekaman said...

No, he was a far left idealogue who revealed that he wasn't a "maverick" at all and showed it in his $#!7-ass attitutude toward the wishes of most of his constituents.

Lefties won't get what this election was all about. Bill Maher thinks Americans voted to the Right because Obama wasn't Left enough. It's delusional.

Who's talking about Bill Maher here?

I really do understand how hard it must be for you to make the connection, so just forget about it and go to sleep.
