It is shaping up to be an interesting political year. With the 2014 elections right around the corner, both parties are now jockeying for position, chomping at the bit and can’t wait to break from the gate. The Republican leadership is suddenly realizing that instead of just condemning Obama Care, they are going to have to present a solution to the American people. They apparently are beginning to lean toward an alternative measure to entice voters to come their way. Of course staunch Republicans will automatically flow their way in November because anything Republican is good for the country. But there are those this time around that are not going to sway as easily as they have before because they are not in any way, shape or manner in favor of or willing to support health care reform …period.
Then of course there is the dismal embarrassing Government shutdown, enticed by, and pushed by the Tea party gang over in the Republican controlled House that was just out of control last fall. I assure you that if this was not an election year this government would be on the verge once again. I also assure you that if the far right Tea Party members are re-instated and they even gain some numbers next time around we will be watching our government wane down once again next November just after the elections, if not then, no later than February of 2015.

Democrats don’t get off that easily either. There is enough gloom and doom to spread around for them as well. Their lousy dismal foreign affairs performance, Obama Care, of course. Unemployment. Inflated cost of living, job growth vs. lower wages. The systematic elimination of the middle class. All this while the Rich get Richer and the poor get poorer. A president who refuses to accept responsibility for his own performance a lack thereof. as well as the presidents persistent arrogance.
Now, you couple this with a dissatisfied electorate, and angry voters. an economy in the can, and what seems to many to be a nation on the brink, and yeah……you bet…..2014 seems to be setting up for an interesting political year. It should be noted that there is no doubt in my mind that the Republicans could sweep the House and senate next November. There are enough Senators and House members stepping down to bring about some serious change in both chambers. Part of that issues rests right in the lap of President Obama who has some serious issues to deal with. His arrogance, and a perception that he has all the answers. That his vision is all that counts for this country. He thinks that because he won the American people will just tow the line, and do his will. Wrong Mr. President. the people of this nation are not in your corner. Most do not support Obama Care. and your foreign affairs policy, if there is any, is a dismal failure as well as a national embarrassment.. If you don’t believe me……then wait for November.
OK folks…….they are chomping at the bit and ……………….Their off!
2014 Election coverage begins!
That’s my point of view……I look forward to your insights on this and all the issues of the day. Until then have a great day and as usual God Bless America.
And once again….Thank you for your patience during this overly long shut down of The Horton Journal. Coupled with recent family issues and problems with the ol’ PC things have been tough. But I think we are back on-line.
