The Promise of a Rose Garden

Today can be a big day for our nation.  Today may be the day the message gets across to incumbents in each of our 50 states that regardless of who they are, what party they belong to, or what their own political views are, their jobs are not safe.

So far in our primary elections this year, we have defeated one incumbent, Alan Mollohan of West Virginia, and we have seen another incumbent, Bob Bennett from Utah, refused the nomination of his party for reelection.

We have also seen approximately 69 incumbents retire, reach term-limits, or leave the office they hold to seek a different office.

Those who may get pink slips in today’s primaries are: (alphabetically by state)

  1. Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR)
  2. Mike Ross ( D-AR4)
  3. Ed Whitfield (R-KY1)
  4. S. Brett Guthrie (R-KY2)
  5. John Yarmuth   (D-KY3)
  6. Geoff Davis (R-KY4)
  7. Harold “Hal” Rogers (R-KY5)
  8. Ben chandler (D-KY6)
  9. Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR)
  10. David Wu (D-OR1)
  11. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR3)
  12. Senator Arlen Specter (D-PN)
  13. Kathy Dahlkemper (D-PN3)
  14. Jim Gerlach (D-PN6)
  15. Paul Kanjorski (D-PN11)
  16. Charlie Dent (R-PN15)
  17. Tim Holden (D-PN17)

The defeat of Senators Blanche Lincoln and Arlen Specter would be HUGE!  Both are Obama puppets, as are the other Democrats on this list, but these two come from a body of only 50 Senators.  If Republicans can take those two seats in November, the balance of power in the Senate would begin to shift.

Can you imagine the sweat that would pour off the foreheads of The Great Opologizer and Vice President Hair Plugs if Conservative Republicans could win ALL 17 of these seats in November?  That doesn’t include the tears that will fall when “Don’t call me Ma’am” Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid each get their own pink slips from their individual primaries.  Oh! How delicious!

You know there are other Senators and Congressmen who may get their pink slips in the primaries this year, but they face that prospect later than today’s three primaries.  I will discuss them closer to their primaries.

For now, if these 17 can be put out of our misery tomorrow, it will go a long way to taking our country back – one vote at a time.  That is just the way it SHOULD be done; by the American voter; one election at a time.

Maybe they would understand it better if we tell them this way…
