Fear Not Brave Christian Soldier!

What have the liberals won? Tax Increases?

Sure they want to jack up taxes but Bush will veto, tear up, burn and scatter any tax increases the liberals manage to pass to the four winds. I am not sure the Congressional liberals will with the presidential elections coming up. They have a very slim majority. They may not have the votes in their own caucus.

They know they can't win so maybe they won't try. But I hope they do try.

I am not too worried about losing Congress. We have Bush as a firewall. I am more upset about losing my individual member of Congress. Rob Simmons was the best congressman Connecticut has ever had and we replaced him with a lawyer.

That’s like throwing away a million dollar diamond ring for something fished out of the toilet bowl.

I feel we are in an excellent position to win it back Congress (won’t take much) plus the presidency in 2008. The Republican Revolution will continue. It will even continue while we are still in the minority.

Like Winston Churchill once said

"The Americans will always do the right thing …--after exhausting every other possible alternative."

Losing elections is in fact a consequence of leadership. The voters need not be grateful.

Gratitude is not the reason the Republicans did what they did. We enacted our policies on issues like Partial Birth Abortion, tax cuts, good judges and especially the War on Terror (the Iraq war included) because those things were right for America.

And still are. Losing the elections should not be seen as a rejection of all that. All that we have accomplished will not easily be undone.

If the Devil himself popped up and offered I would not trade positions with the liberals for they still don't have any ideas.

Republicans were very effective all those years in the minority and we will be just as effective this time around.

They have already started eating their own – Murtha. They get elected supposedly to rout corruption and this is who the new Speaker wants as Majority Leader? And not a word from the Norwich Bulletin. No editorial and no charges of hypocrisy from former news reporter Ray Hackett.

We conservatives have to consciously refrain from sore loserism. Let them and their buddies in the press have their victory party. They earned it.

..Sort of.

But I can't resist pointing out the spin the liberal press put on the Democrat take-over verses the Republican take-over in 1994.

2006 was heralded as a great victory while the Republican take-over (after 50 years, not 12) was characterized by the late Peter Jennings:

"Some thoughts on those angry voters. Ask parents of any two-year-old and they can tell you about those temper tantrums: the stomping feet, the rolling eyes, the screaming. It's clear that the anger controls the child and not the other way around. It's the job of the parent to teach the child to control the anger and channel it in a positive way. Imagine a nation full of uncontrolled two-year-old rage. The voters had a temper tantrum last week....Parenting and governing don't have to be dirty words: the nation can't be run by an angry two-year-old."

I distinctly recall the press saying over and over that the small margin was going to make it extraordinarily difficult for Newt Gingrich to govern. They embarrassed themselves with their feigned empathy at Newt’s task.

There was all this chatter about what a polarizing figure Newt was.

How crazy their ideas were.

This Contract “ON” America was spun to be some kind of evil doctrine and was almost never termed “reform”.

There were predictions that this majority would be swept out in 1996 or the time after that.

Clearly the voters made a mistake and are now horrified the next day.

“What have we done!” the press imagined the voters thinking. Media liberals were sincerely perplexed that the voters did not turn the GOP out until now 12 years latter.

You hear none of that now. You would think the Democrats won all the seats by the coverage.

Pelosi is the first woman Speaker of the House! Whoopee!

You hear nothing of how difficult it will be for her. She is not a polarizing figure. They bristle when conservatives call her a San Francisco liberal --- which she literally is.

The press has never been on our side. They are a chess piece on our opponent’s side only pretending to be a free agent, above the fray. That’s just the way it is.

We with the New Media will challenge them and overtake them with the force of our ideas over theirs.

We can do this because they are not good enough at spinning the news to stop us.
