upcoming congressional races: are there 10 more scott brown’s out there?

upcoming congressional races: are there 10 more scott brown’s out there?

with the big wins in virginia and new jersey governor races, gop’ers were beginning to really hope that change might be coming in 2010. and then hell froze over when scott brown won ted kennedy’s seat in massachusetts.

with that incredible senate race, coupled with the now widespread populace opinion that obama’s policies suck, (R)’s now seem to have a new confidence in running for elective office around the country in 2010 — even in areas that are normally quite democratically ‘blue’.

time mag has pulled together a list of 10 gop contenders that promise to give dems a run for their money in the fall. i’ve picked out a few of them below that i am watching closely:

1. marco rubio, florida – my favorite up and coming young gun conservative! he stands for bedrock conservative principles. i blogged about him here. marco needs to knock off rino charlie crist in the primary before he meets the incumbent, kendrick meeks.

2. kelly ayotte, new hampshire – she’s running for retiring judd gregg’s seat. she was the state’s AG until stepping down to run for the senate against democrat paul hodes. some have likened kelly to sarah palin.

3. sean duffy, wisconsin – assuming he wins the gop primary, sean would go toe-to-toe with david obey, the all-powerful head of the house appropriations committee and well known for his personal and political moonbattery. sean is a successful district attorney who also happens to be a former star of MTV’s The Real World (Boston), a champion lumberjack competitor, and an ESPN commentator. oh, and did i mention a pro-life, pro-2nd amendment conservative?

there is no doubt that barack obama and his radical policies like healthcare reform and bloated spending bills, has created a very loud pushback from an energized gop and others across the country. the much aligned tea party movement? is real, viable, and with a big political impact. independents and even rino (R)’s, who put obama in office, are now rejecting The One these days. will this all result in some gop landslide in the 2010 elections? i’m not so sure but there is a sea change coming with more and more good gop candidates stepping up — and we can thank barack obama’s hopechangery for it.

    I’m having a hard time deciding if I want conservatives to gain back too much power too soon. I’d like to give the dems a little more time and opportunity to leave no doubt in the minds of voters just what a bunch of screwed up morons they are so that theres no doubt in peoples minds that a conservative repubkican is going to be what the country needs.
    Then again out of love for my country I’m not sure how much damage I’d be willing to .allow just to make that point. By the time this next election arrives me might be pretty close to some serious anarchy

  • Ken says:

    There’s no doubt that the Republicans will make more gains, forcing Obama’s arrogance further and further into hiding. I don’t think the Republicans will take control of the House or Senate, but they will make enough gains, and that’s a start.

    Completely oblivious to the losses of New Jersey, Virginia, and then Mass. the dems will continue to ram their ideology down the American people’s throat, further alienating them.

    This has taught me a valuable lesson though. I don’t want ANY party to have the “supermajority” in politics.

  • PenniePan says:

    I think it’s interesting that you conservative foot soldiers are not very excited or really interested in controlling the Government. You clearly don’t trust your own leaders. That right there is one main difference between D’s and R’s: We want to Win at all costs. You don’t. We want to govern. You just want to talk abou t governing. You aren’t willing to fight hard. We are.

  • lisab says:

    “We want to Win at all costs.”

    that is the problem

    you sacrifice your integrity and honor

    and is why you cannot be trusted with power

  • Riley says:

    “the much aligned tea party movement? is real, viable, and with a big political impact.”

    Not in the Illinois primary today. For the Republicans, the Tea Party candidate, Pat Hughes, was routed by Mark Kirk who is a moderate Republican. It wasn’t in Mass. either. Brown is a moderate. Where is their impact?

  • lisab says:

    brown is a redneck for massachusetts.

    the massachusetts election was a very strong tea-party organization.

    the whole election largely centered on the populist howie carr, a talk radio personality during the 3 to 7 rush hour.

    he was a MAJOR factor in getting out the vote for brown. it was a complete popular uprising against the dems.

  • lisab says:

    in Illinois it looks like brady will be the next govenor.

    quinn is pretty much doa.

    brady is also a teapartier.

    “…the now widespread populace opinion that obama’s policies suck…”

    Only according to you brainless conservatives! The President’s first year was rough but at least he has the balls to do something new and different to make things better for all of us. That’s a lot more then any republican president we’ve had ever did or democrat for that matter. If you were such spoiled obstructionists, plans could be put into play to help all Americans. But no. If you can’t be in charge, you want to stand in the way. Why don’t you slink back to that rock you crawled out of until you can write about something factual and interesting.

    Also I make a prediction: in the end, Scott Brown will vote often with Democrats. Just sayin.

  • micky says:

    Wow pennie, your inability to grasp what is a functional government is simply astoudingly ignorant

  • micky says:

    nice try bobby, but even your own base is turning on the shmuck.he neck in neck with carter after only one year for being the most useless president ever. no ones numbers have crashed in such short a time like his have

    Think mass a chews it

  • lisab says:

    “That’s a lot more then any republican president we’ve had ever did or democrat for that matter.”

    obama had an awful first year

    even carter had a more successful first year

  • Ken says:

    “I think it’s interesting that you conservative foot soldiers are not very excited or really interested in controlling the Government.”

    Once again, Pennie, you are completely clueless. My point was that nobody should have absolute power, NOBODY. Nothing good ever seems to come of it.

    “You clearly don’t trust your own leaders.”

    On the contrary, we trust them much more than the current bunch of power hungry, moronic socialists that are currently in power. Of course, if you go by the polls, most of the country doesn’t trust them either.

    “That right there is one main difference between D’s and R’s: We want to Win at all costs.”

    Agreed. Lying, cheating, and stealing are all in the democrats playbook. Obtaining and holding onto power is the only thing they care about. It’s stunning that you are so incredbily stupid that you think that is a good thing.

    “You aren’t willing to fight hard. We are.”

    That’s good to know. If only you left winger would want to fight the terrorists as hard as you fight your fellow Americans. Truly pathetic, yet not surprising at all.

    “Only according to you brainless conservatives!”

    Right on Bobby!!! The Republicans took the seat in Mass. that was held by the king of liberals for over 30 years because it is a very conservative state, right? People LOVE Obama’s policies!!!

    “The President’s first year was rough but at least he has the balls to do something new and different to make things better for all of us.”

    First of all, his balls are in his wife’s purse. Second, please tell us all Bobby what has he done to make things better for all of us. Please quote one thing. I’d love to hear it!!

    “If you were such spoiled obstructionists, plans could be put into play to help all Americans.”

    Again, please tell us exactly what we have ‘obstructed’ that is so good for Americans. You Obamazombies are all the same, you come here spouting your “Obama is the savior!”, yet nobody can name anything he is doing that is going to make things better.

    Here’s another tip moron, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, G.W. Bush all passed legislation without a “supermajority”, why can’t Obama? His arrogant “We won” attitude is coming back to bite him on his priviliged ass, isn’t it? Demanding Republicans do what Obama says is not working with him, it’s submiting to him. I realize that all you O-bots would hurl yourself off a cliff if Obama said to, but not all of us are as stupid as you.

    “Why don’t you slink back to that rock you crawled out of until you can write about something factual and interesting.”

    Ooooh, sounds like someone needs some free mental health care!! Of course, I don’t expect Bobby to come back and answer any of my questions. Like the typical democrats he will spew his lies, hatred, and anger and then disappear back under his bridge. So sad.

    “Also I make a prediction: in the end, Scott Brown will vote often with Democrats. Just sayin.”

    Yeah, weren’t you dolts also saying Brown was going to lose? Good call!!

  • Jane says:

    I don’t know how I missed this yesterday. I know from years of politics watching and participation that the GOP has no stomach for the fight. The GOP buckles under their own platform issues an have a history as a fractured party who never ever stands by their own or closes ranks to protect one of their own. It’s interesting that you are not wanting domination. That is a real flaw and will ensure victory for us. Thanks!

  • Ken says:

    “The GOP buckles under their own platform issues an have a history as a fractured party who never ever stands by their own or closes ranks to protect one of their own.”

    Excellent point, Jane!! The dems are more than willing to close ranks and protect the corrupt in your party. Another Pennie clone! Too stupid to realize what they are saying.

    “It’s interesting that you are not wanting domination.”

    Even more intersting that you are wanting it. It seems to have done wonders for the country so far! Which is probably why you are going to lose it come November. Nice work!!

  • micky says:

    Ken.
    These idiots will never learn the perils that a one party state brings. To them a “one party state” probably makes them think of Vegas

  • Great blog! Will you add me to your blogroll? I’ll add you to mine!

    Where is Dade????? What’s that old saying about rats jumping off a sinking ship????

  • Ken says:

    I prefer the saying “Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.” 🙂

  • David says:

    “If you were such spoiled obstructionists, plans could be put into play to help all Americans.”

    Dude, the SENATE and the HOUSE have enough “D” members in them that they didn’t need ANY help from the Republicans to pass ANYTHING. Do you not understand that?

    For the ENTIRE LAST YEAR the DEMS have been in COMPLETE and UTTER control of Congress – yet THEY COULD NOT PASS this sh*t that they say was sooooo good for the country. Why is that? It’s not the R’s fault. They were HELPLESS OBSERVERS, not problematic obstructors. THEY HAD NO POWER to speak of because of the DEMS supermajority. What do you not comprehend about that?

    It’s the DEMS who shot THEMSELVES in the foot!! Even (some) of THEM couldn’t stomach the cr*p that the President is trying to shove down the throat of the American people.

    Got any response to this, dude? OR are you going to hide?

  • Jeff Banning says:

    I am supporting Jane Norton here in Colorado. Bobby says that Obama had the balls to try something great for this country that will help all Americans.” More rhetoric. What do those Americans owe me? Jobs created, none. Socialist agenda of failed 1930’s policies is balls? Really? Giving money back to the American people takes…I’ll clean it up…guts. But he doesn’t want poewer to go to the people he wants Power to an ever-expanding Government. After theis I will crawl back under my rock because that is all I can afford after the Government took control of my House. Where is the 600 or so Billion dollars of the stimulus that isn’t spent? Where is all the funds that were paid back by the “evil” banks? In a Liberal slushfunds that’s where.

  • David says:

    BOBBY? ….BOBBY?

    Where aaaare youuuuu??

    Looking for your logical, level-headed response to my posted points….

    …or are you going to hide?

  • micky says:

    Dave, this place for some reason attracts the “drive by ” that rarely can back his claims

  • Ken says:

    Yeah, Dave, waiting for a “logical, level-headed response” from one of these liberal trolls is like waiting for Obama to accept responsibility for his failures!!!!

  • scott says:

    Ken, you just said it all on Feb.4, 2010 at 7:39pm.
    and Kate, you rock on, girl!
