Election 2014: GOP Has Midterm Engagement Advantage
**Posted by Phineas
Discouraging, wasn’t it? Last week, when the Supreme Court’s
exercise in pretzel logic ruling in Sebelius came out and shocked everyone (pro or anti-ObamaCare), my blog-buddy ST took to calling me an optimist, because I was telling anyone who would listen that the fight wasn’t over, that we could still win, that the fight had only just started.
And yet it’s hard not to be discouraged in the face of a Congress that rams a horrible bill down our throats via anti-constitutional means, and then has it saved by a Justice –supposedly one of ours– who rewrites the statute in order to save it, effectively telling the rest of us that our opinions on what is constitutional — what is plainly right– don’t matter.
So, late at night, empty martini glass in hand, even I felt the pangs of despair.
Enter Coach Whittle, who isn’t having any of it:
Let’s turn 2012 into such a landslide, the Democrats look back on the Great Shellacking of 2010 as a golden age.
