Republicans Lost but Conservatives Won on Election Day

Many of our misguided friends on the Left think the mid-term elections were a resounding embrace of the Liberal Democrat agenda. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The Democrats won because the Republicans abandoned their conservative principles. There is an old political adage that says when Democrats act like Republicans; they win. In races all over the country, the Democrats ran conservative candidates to pull their left facing party more towards the center. They did a good job, but they'll never be able to hold because their underlying liberalism has to creep out.

Liberal Speaker Pelosi and her leadership team has already had to reign in uber-Liberal Charlie Rangel after he went left and started calling for a resumption of the draft.

George Will wrote an article which sums it up quite nicely.

The questions is--Will the Republicans learn a lesson in '08 and dance with the conservatives that brought them???

Stay tuned.

Comments:
Republican leadership has been less than stellar for the past four years. As Mr. Markum said, the Republican faithful abandoned their party. After spending like the character in Brewster’s millions, a minor league baseball player has to waste $30m in 30 days in order to inherit $300m. Our leaders wasted billions in so many years. I had so much faith that the Republican leadership would do so much better than the Democratic administration that preceded it. It is very disappointing to be let down by those that you trusted to be great leaders. Who now will lead us out of this mess?
