About Last Night


So what do the results from last night's primaries really mean?

Politico: "President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party, who have been starved for good news through much of 2010, finally received a generous helping Tuesday night. Republicans, meanwhile, were left with several new reasons to wonder whether all the favorable national trends showing up in polls are enough to overcome local candidates who are inspiring little confidence about their readiness for the general election 12 weeks from now."

First Read: "Lost in the White House's and DSCC's big win in Colorado, the likely second round of overtime for Republicans in Georgia, and perhaps the Democrats' best primary night of the year was this key development: The Tea Party won yet another key primary."

2. Thank Goodness For The Tea Baggers
Dem losses will be mitigated and I won't be surprised if every single Tea Bagger candidate goes down to defeat.

5. I hope so but it does make one wonder how the teabaggers are getting it done.

6. Getting What Done? Winning Primaries?
That's not hard to figure out. They run on hate and enough Repubs are fueled by hate. But it won't translate into general election wins.

8. Again fingers crossed you are right but it is just so frustrating how hard it is that
anyone with a progressive or liberal slant can't get it done.
