Letter to the Editor
Tuesday’s elections are a big wake up call for those who think that America is leaning Republican. In Pennsylvania, the Democrat beat the Republican for Congress in Jack Murtha’s seat. Senator Arlen Spector, Republican turned Democrat, lost to a real Democrat. In Kentucky the Tea Party candidate beat the Republican establishment candidate in the Republican primary. If the republicans can’t even win in a Republican primary I’d say that the Democrats are going to do much better than what the news pundits are predicting.
None of this is a surprise for me because the Republicans caused the mess we’re in and they have tried to obstruct the recovery. While only 1/2 the country agrees that Democrats are fixing the problem, no one things the Republicans are fixing the problem. So of course Republicans aren’t going to win. Maybe Republicans should think about working with President Obama and accomplishing something positive and run on a record of accomplishment.
