Election 2022; Positive Waves From Texas and America

Positive Waves From Texas and America; As the election approaches, the polls are showing the GOP pulling ahead. Not surprising.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Donald Sutherland as Oddball in Kelly’s Heroes, 1970

Last week I posted on the disaster that would be an uncontrolled Biden administration. With at least 52 senators and the house, Biden could run rough shot over Americans in the last two years of his administration.

Well, things are shaping up. As we approach the actual election day, polling firms, concerned about their reputation (and ability to attract future contracts) are starting to use reliable data for their analysis. It’s showing, shocking, the GOP is leading in the generic ballot. While this poll is not meaningless, it is also not the critical stat to look at.

In the competitive house races, the GOP is ahead. From RealClearPolitics, it shows “32 are toss ups, 179 safe for the GOP, 22 lean GOP, and 17 are likely Republican, while 185 safe Democratic, 17 lean Democratic, and 20 likely Democratic.” FiveThirtyEight is showing “13 as toss ups, 195 safe GOP, 14 likely Republican, and 5 leaning GOP. On the other side, it shows 167 safe Democratic, 30 likely Democrat, and 12 lean Democrat.” To retain the house, the Democrats would need to win almost every competitive seat and not lose any leaning seats. With an economy in shambles, inflation, exploding fuel and food prices, the Dems will have a hell of a chance selling, “Like this, I’ll give you more…”

Now in my adopted home state of Texas we’ve had a rough go of it as of late, with an out of control border (Thanks Joe), the administration at war with American energy (Thanks again Joe), and radical judges releasing felons all over the state. But no matter how bad it is, trust me, the Democrats will make it worse. A shinning example of starring into the abyss.

Robert Francis “Bobby” O’Rourke, failed Democratic Texas senate candidate (2018), failed Democratic presidential candidate (2020), soon to be failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate, brought his snake oil business to the University of Houston on Tuesday September 27th. I remember in the 2018 senate election, he vowed to campaign in all 254 counties of Texas, as opposed to concentrating on the large areas where the votes are. Well, he’s going after the wrong people with the wrong issues again:

HOUSTON – On the stump before hundreds of students at the University of Houston Democrat Beto O’Rourke hammered at incumbent Greg Abbott on the Texas abortion ban and his opponents refusal to embrace any form gun reform.

“We are going to win because we prioritize the lives of those kids in that classroom ahead of the NRA or any special interest in this state.. We are going to win because we are fighting for every woman to make her own decisions about her own body, her own future, and her own health care,” said O’Rourke.

Blasted by Abbott, week after week, as soft on border security, O’Rourke doubled down on his call for Texans to extend empathy and compassion to those risking all to come here.

“I certainly understand why somebody might jump that line to be able to be with their families. Honestly, I might do the same thing if I were in the same position, so let’s make sure there is a safe, legal, orderly path for that person to do it the right way, the legal way,” said O’Rourke.

Collectively, the message resonated, on the most diverse campus within perhaps the most diverse city in the entire country…

…With 41 days days until the November 8 election, polling has O’Rourke trailing Abbott by between seven and nine points.

Greg Abbot is no conservative, he is echelons better than his opponent, who may turn out to be the worse of his three electoral opponents (Wendy Davis 2014, Lupe Valdez 2018). One, Bobby O’Rourke is hitting on issues where he is weak. Gun control, i.e., “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” will motivate the conservative, gun owning majority of Texas straight to the voting booth. Two, abortion is not a strong issue, showing up at 6% nationwide.

Three, voters know “comprehensive immigration reform” is a dog whistle for amnesty, letting ten of millions of illegal aliens to become legal. Bobby should remember how Governor Abbot extended his significant poll lead by moving illegal aliens to Democratic sanctuary cities. The liberal enclave Martha’s Vineyard (Population 14,749), aka Obama’s Island, was overwhelmed by 49 illegal aliens. The state of Massachusetts mobilized 125 National Guard soldiers to handle this “invasion of the brown people” in less time it took to bus them from Florida, and before they could disappear into the region.

Another thing about Bobby, and the GOP should thank him for it. He drew a fortune in money and other support in his 2018 campaign against Ted Cruz, and even as it was apparent O’Rourke would lose, he still refused to assist other, more winnable campaigns. A statewide campaign in Texas cost a fortune, and Bobby has so far raised $41 million (Including a cool million from George Soros, $300 thousand from the American Federation of Teachers, and $1.7 million from Powered by People, his own PAC). That is a lot of money not going to support actual winnable races. On behalf of the American people, thanks Bobby.

So, are we out of the woods yet? Not a chance. Never questioned the ability of the GOP leadership to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. But taking the house is looking more certain as the days go on, and several senate races (Laxalt in Nevada, Johnson in Wisconsin, Budd in North Carolina, and Rubio in Florida) make the senate look obtainable. But I must say, as much as I can’t stand this woman, she is dead on. The former Minister of Propaganda for the O’Biden regime, Jen Psaki, in a spasm of honesty:

Yeah, look, I think that Democrats, if the election is about who is the most extreme, as we saw Kevin McCarthy touch on there with Marjorie Taylor Greene — I’ll say her name, sitting over his left side — then they’re going to win. If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose. And they know that.

Here’s to a very bad Wednesday, November 9th, in the White House.

  1. O’Rourke would be a disaster for our state, He’s a flake and a grifter. He’d pull the DPS and national guard off of the border and thousands more people and tons more drugs would flow into Texas and the rest of the country.
    And, thank you for using O’Rourke’s given name. It just galls me when the conservative press uses his nick name, perpetuating the myth that he’s Hispanic.

    PS. I loved Kelly’s Heros.
