A Republican victory in November might hamper the Obama agenda. If Republicans take the majority in the Senate, and of course retain their majority in the House, depending on the numbers, of course, they could give President Obama a run for his money. Polls show that there is a real chance that Republicans could gain enough votes to take the Senate. If that is the case Obama could be in major trouble as Republican work to stall his agenda during the course of the next two years.

The question is just how hard will Republicans push. How hard is hard enough. How hard is too hard. This is an important question because a miscalculation could cause Republicans the White House in 2016. And there is no doubt, when you take all the window dressing away, it’s all about the White mansion on Pennsylvania Avenue. All about power. All this talk about the best interest of the country, Conservative Right, Liberal Left, Obama Care, Health Care, corporate interests, the budget, Foreign Affairs, Wars, Wars on Terror, and on and on, is nothing more than window dressing, and saying just the right thing to get elected. Because in the end, it seems, neither party really seems to give a Rats rear end about you, me, Pa, Ma, brother, sisters, or even the household dog for that matter, because their eye is on the prize. The White House.

That’s a long way from yester-year, when politicians at least had to live up to some ethic, and exercise some form of responsibility. But today they go before an open mic, and promise the moon, a new tomorrow, and a new world order, and just usher in more kaos and then tell us we misunderstood what they said when they proclaimed that there would be a chicken in every pot.

True to form, there are things Republicans do not like about Obama. His Health Care Reform package, Obama Care, as well as his Foreign Affairs, and his actions on, or lack of action, if you will, on the war on terror. The President has been evasive, not forthcoming, and has more or less blamed everybody for everything gone wrong, during the course of his administration. Yet, he seems bent on showing us all how smart he is, while most Americans, it seems to keep trying to figure out what it is, or who he actually represents.

So, Republicans have a lot of fodder they can use against this president. But if they want to use that fodder, they are going to have to take a strong stand on their take of the issues of the day. They will have to justify their cause to the people. The people don’t want to see one attack after another on a sitting president. They want to see a working government getting something done, something done I might add that serves the people.

Republicans have a good chance of winning in November. They might even have a chance at winning two years from now. But, during the course of the next two years they will have to prove themselves. They don’t want to turn this thing into a Race issue. It is a political issue. It is a matter of ideology, a question of conduct, a position of restoration of the power of the United States. They will have to advocate a return of US presence and clout in the Mid East. A strong nation willing and ready to stand up to China, Russia, Iran, ISIS, terrorists, and radical Islamic factions killing people just because of their faith. We will have to stand with Israel, the last bastion of Democracy in the Middle East. In short, they must call for the restoration of the nation we once were, commanding the respect we once had around the world.

But to accomplish this they have to be careful not to alienate the American People, by personal attacks on the president. They must  justify their cause by presenting an honest up front case to the people.

Yes, Republicans could enjoy a victory in November. The question is can they gain the trust of the American people to gain the White House in 2016.  Only time will tell.

Have a great day.  And don’t forget to vote.



I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
