    The republicans are going to have a grand old time in 2010 with good election results reflecting the coming disgust Americans will have with the direction Obama is taking this country. It is a good time to be a republican! I predict that after the republicans take the presidency back in 2012, they will control congress and the executive branch for at least 20 years. The country does not want a bunch of crooked Chicago democrat socialist machine politicians ruining this country.

    “I predict that after the republicans take the presidency back in 2012, they will control congress and the executive branch for at least 20 years”

    Then how will they blame all the problems they create on the Democrats?

    Just remember, Criswell used to predict things, too. (And the tone and style of the post in question has a new name, but a familiar feel.)

    Commentary:

    I am glad to see the NC-11 Republicans take steps to incorporate some tech in their presentations and look forward to seeing them begin to utilize social networking.

    As a conservative Republican who is an active member of several social networks, I hope that this just isn’t a passing fad where people just go online and talk amongst themselves in an echo chamber and pat each other on the back. I want to see it translated into boots on the ground in conjunction with online planning that is cooperative in nature.

    From what I have observed on the state level and national level Republican parties, the social networking has been driven by, and for, the party leadership and supporting power structure. I hope that the NC-11 party does not go that route.

    I am hopeful that several of the local county parties do get it, and have seen several already quietly at work…

    Criswell was able to predict the future, because that’s where he and the rest of us will spend the rest of our lives.

    I’m still waiting for Denver to turn into Jell-o.
