The Dems are operating at a disadvantage, as the party in power during continued hard times, they are the target of gripes. The wars seem to be going on forever, the economy hasn’t recovered quickly enough. But the Dems have one, great big advantage — the GOP. Any prediction that the GOP are going to have great gains in the 2010 elections ignores the fact that the GOP keeps shooting itself in the foot. By appeasing the Tea Party crowd and seeking a very, small, tiny, tent of like-minded people, the GOP is alienating the woman vote, the African-American vote, the Hispanic vote, and with GOP chairman Steele recent racist “Honest Injun,” remark, the GOP is thumbing its nose at native Americans.
But I have a 2010 election prediction: Victory in the 2010 mid-term elections will go to the candidates who have a plan to increase jobs. This is obvious. Shall I repeated it? Jobs means victory in the 2010 mid-term elections. Victory in 2010 mid-terms will mean more Jobs.
Democrats plan to return to their core strength and to get a Jobs Bill bill passed in the next few months. The focus according to Senate leadership sources will be on Small business job creation, infrastructure jobs, green jobs, and public works jobs. This Dem emphasis on jobs, and the GOP emphasis on “Party purity” will result in success for the Dems.
