For the midterms, a tilt to the GOP

Democrats hoping improvements in the economy's course and the Affordable Care Act's implementation would level the playing field for November's elections should brace themselves.

A nationwide USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll shows the strongest tilt to Republican candidates at this point in a midterm year in at least two decades, including before partisan "waves" in 1994 and 2010 that swept the GOP into power. Though Election Day is six months away — a lifetime in politics — at the moment, Democrats are saddled by angst over the economy, skepticism about the health care law and tepid approval of the president.

How do we keep the loudmouthed knowitalls and the purists from bashing republicans day in and day out.  This only serves to suppress the vote in the hopes of enhancing tv or radio ratings.

We need a super majority in the senate to over ride the predictable veto.

Republicans running for office must get a broad segment of their district or state to vote for them.  This seems to be lost on the purists.

Absolutely correct. The knowitalls and the purists are more dangerous than the libs. They make it very expensive for the GOP primaries, leaving the eventual candidate handicapped in the general election. Worse yet, they often favor candidates based on a good sounding speech or two, and leave the GOP with a black eye to defend, whether that candidate won the nomination or not.

We beat the fringe primary candidates against the GOP leadership.  We win the Senate and retain the House in Nov.  We show them we can win without the extreme right.  We show the media (talk radio too) that adults are in charge.
