Stay Positive

Despite the election results last night, now is not the time to go wobbly. Keep a smile on your face, like one of my alltime heros always did. Perhaps he's rolling over in his grave, but he never wallowed in self-pity.

Stay positive folks. It is time to go on offense.

So the Democrats won? Fine. Scrutinize every move they make, but do so positively and constructively. Do not act like the babies on the left, who are sure to be sore winners.

This is not permanent. We have elections every two years. Let's look at the Senate races and the presidential race for 2008 and focus on winning.

I know, it will be difficult to avoid slapping gloating moonbats. But turn the tables on them.

Be gracious, smile, congratulate them and remind them they now have to act like adults and govern, and they will be subject to criticism and accountability.

Acting like them is not the solution.

They only know how to take the low road and after a couple years of their ugliness, people will reject them.

There will be plenty of time to assess the damage as to where things went wrong. But give the Democrats credit for being smart about recruiting moderate candidates in red states. They tired of being in the House minority since 1994 and did something about it.

The GOP needs to regroup and target districts that were close this year, recruiting strong conservative candidates. Mushy-headed moderates and RINO's are not the answer.

You try to run in the middle of the road and you get run over.

Ignore the media pronouncements about the end of conservatism, work hard, keep you chins up and proceed ahead toward 2008.

I will live my life, practice capitalism every day and focus on the positive. I hope you all will do the same.

Just wanted to say how much I thought of your words on LGF tonight - and I'll comment here because my words will get lost amongst the hordes of lizards there now

You are so positive and after reading about your tragedies at such a young and vulnerable age my heart went out to you

You have made me feel so much better as now here in OZ we have to put up with the gloating, gleeful lefties of the media who will be having a great time now

And the heat will now be on our PM so I'm hoping he hasn't lost touch with his conservative base

I thought I had posted a comment on here earlier... but don't see it. Hmm, well, I had a good point, I think. Which basically agreed with your post.

It's not over. It's not the end of the world!

No need to lay down like Mike al Moore in bed for days! (as some of the lizards seemed to be doing)

Great blog! I'm adding you to my favs.

Great picture, excellent thoughts.

We lost. Fair enough. No time to act like the screaming weenies would.

now let's see what the left's plan for Iraq is.

And the American people often don't like to aware both the Congress and the White House to the same party (though we were granted it for the last six years). So this could bode well for '08.
