70 House Democrats May be Vulnerable in 2010
I know that people want to take a break and not think about elections for a while after what was probably the longest campaign cycle in history but there is not any time for letup. That is why I have already written at least two posts about the mid term election of 2010, and here comes another. Conservatives do not have the luxury of taking time off now that the presidential election is over. Now is the time that conservatives need to start looking forward and rebuilding for the next election, there is no time to waste. Democrats are already looking at holding on to their majorities and Republicans need to concentrate on making gains RIGHT NOW for 2010.
Democrats are already telling their constituents not to rest easy because of the gains that they have made in the last two elections. There is a belief by some Democrats that as many as 70 Democrat seats could be vulnerable in 2010 and conservatives need to start focusing on them immediately. There is no time to waste.
Harry Reid is already feeling the pressure and now it appears that he is not alone.
We have a daunting challenge ahead in the 2010 midterm elections,” Democratic House campaign chief Chris Van Hollen says in a year-end Web video thanking supporters. “Many of our new members are from conservative areas with long histories of Republican representation. We are looking at potentially 70 — 70 — threatened Democrats who will need our support
Now is not the time to lick our wounds, now is the time to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and start all over again. It may be a long road but the journey must start and it must start now. You may be tired of elections and of politics but to delay starting will just delay results and we cannot afford any delay. Literally or figuratively.
Conseravtives need to get the message out there and it must start now. It isn’t too soon to look towards the next election, on the contrary, it is imperative that we start looking forward to the next election. Liberals are and we can’t fall behind once again. We need to adopt the liberal practice of attack, attack, attack.
If we sit idly by now we will be wondering how we lost yet another election in 2010. The time for action is now. Democrats know it and we must learn it.
