Last night, in a joyous moment, the old RINO Dick Lugar was taken out by Tea Party voters in Indiana.
Lugar had been their Senator since 1977! It wasn't just that Lugar had gotten old and out of touch with his voters, but he had committed acts of apostasy that voters in Indiana couldn't stomach.
Lugar voted for the TARP bailouts. His votes to seat Sotomayor and Kagan on the Supreme Court drove some voters over the edge. In the end, it wasn't very close. Voters in Indiana gave Lugar the boot. They let him know that values and principles matter.
Barack Obama is the gift that keeps on giving.
Voters who are repulsed by his Socialist agenda have turned to the right politically. Maybe not far enough to the right for my tastes, but much further to the right than they would have been if Hillary Clinton had been President. Hell ... President Hillary Clinton would have been an overwhelming favorite for re-election. Obama is trending at about 47% support in many of the swing states.
This turn of events bodes well for the GOP in the fall election.
When Obama has a jailed felon get 41% of the votes in the Democratic Primary in West Virginia, it is a sign that he is reviled in that state. And no doubt, there are many other states that are prepared to vote the same way in 2012.
