As I watched the news last night a glimmer of hope raised inside of me when I found that the Republicans had won in the Virginia and New Jersey votes. This shows that many of those who were seeking “change” with Obama are now seeing that his far left agenda is not right for America as well as with all left leaning politicians. It also reveals that the Democratic methods used to govern these states are not what the people want. And hopefully now realizing that they don’t need to be taxed through the nose to get their economy back on track, but have a leader that will simply spend frugally.

Now that the election is over we are hear from the Obama administration that it was no big deal to lose. With Robert Gibbs saying, that the election of Republicans to the governorships in Virginia and New Jersey was based on “very local issues that didn’t involve the president.” They may think that downplaying their loss will work on the American people, but it was clear to see during the campaigns that the story was quite different.

President Obama spent a considerable amount of time campaigning for the Democratic candidates in the weeks and days before the elections. Obama even said at one campaign rally for Jon Corzine, “I’m going to need you to knock on doors. I’m going to need you to make phone calls,” he said. “I’m going to need you to do the same thing you did last year.” Not to mention the commercials he did for Creigh Deeds, and the extensive hours he and Joe Biden put in just talking to people and rallying for their Democrat comrades.  And now they say it’s nothing, just some local stuff that has nothing to do with the President?

I beg to differ. I think it has everything to do with the President and the way that these politicians aligned themselves with him and his policies. People are finally waking up and seeing that this “change” isn’t working and want to even the playing field. Although it is faint and some what a small victory, it is still hope. Not the Obama kind of hope mind you, but the kind that the American people are becoming informed and will stand up for the liberty and freedoms that have been uniquely theirs for centuries.
