Political Tidbits….End is near

Midterm election excitement is growing…..but not because of the election….but the end of it…..readers have emailed…..what can be done about all the nasty TV ads…..the answer is…..end our democracy.

Look for a nasty polarized Congress after November…..it appears the ideological center will be gone…..moderate to conservative Democrats are in trouble…..looks like liberal Democrats are escaping…..and House Republicans will be pushed to the far right…..and the ideological center in the Senate will suffer as well…..reaching across the aisle could be dangerous to a political future.

Did you know…..18 states will gain or lose representation…..due to the recent census …..in the House of Representatives…..a change of 24 seats?

With all the attention on the control of Congress…..gubernatorial races have been overlooked…..to control Congress over the next decade…..parties must elect a Governor of their persuasion…..they have veto over redistricting…..required by the U. S. Constitution every ten years.

Look for tea-party advocates…..to start immediately to help keep newly elected conservatives in Congress…..likewise to focus attention on the 2012 nominating process.

House GOP leaders are preparing…..POLITICO reports GOP wants insiders to staff outsiders…..75 to 80 names are on a list of potential chiefs of staff…..the goal is to help freshmen navigate Washington…..and guide them through future election cycles…..it does not stop there…..it is necessary strong knowledgeable staff directors lead committee panels.

To end on a positive note…..for Republicans…..an awful fight will likely develop within the Democratic party…..about the direction of the party…..now a positive note….. for Democrats…..Republicans will have to navigate an obstacle course as it prepares for 2012.
