Republicans can thank President Barack Obama for the party's solid control of the Tennessee Legislature, starting with his appearance at the top of the national Democratic ticket in 2008 after losing the state's presidential primary even among Democratic voters and continuing in more dramatic fashion in 2010.
The GOP has used advertising that linked many Democratic state legislators, even some who were staunch fiscal and social conservatives, to the evil national Democrats.
"You'd think Nancy Pelosi was my high school sweetheart and I played golf with Barack Obama every weekend," grumbled state House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner recently.
The ads pictured Obama side by side with the designated target Democratic legislator. And it seems they were very effective, though you have to wonder if they were really even necessary, given the animosity most voting Tennesseans seemed to have toward Obama.
Consider, for example, Jim Summerville, who was rated by all pundits and professional politicians of both parties as a no-hope candidate in 2010. An obscure adjunct professor at Austin Peay State University, he was the only person to file against veteran Democratic Sen. Doug Jackson of Dickson.
Jackson was one of those guys who called himself "a conservative, pro-business Democrat." He was sponsor of the so-called "guns in bars bill" that liberals hated, for example.

There was a story on local tv (OKC) that 41 GOP state legislators are running unopposed in Oklahoma, compared with 20 dems running unopposed. Obama didn’t win a single county here in 2008. One benefit of that is that we are not subjected to any presidential campaign ads.
The impossible dream as both groups foster each other in a symbiotic & proliferating relationship.
He chose to lie down with dogs, now he’s crying because he’s got an itch. Considering the dogs he’s been “lying” with, it ain’t fleas that’s causing it either.
Absolutely no sympathy here. They are complicit in Democrat evil. When you lie down with dogs, you share their fleas.
Heh. I probably should have scrolled to the bottom to see if someone else had pre-empeted the obvious fleas/dogs idiom.
Yep. I am sure he is, until his vote actually matters. Then he will vote commie rat b@stard, just like every democrat out there.

Good Mike Turner, good. Because here is our goal, to destroy the Democratic Party and drive it from political power in this country. From POTUS to Peoria dog-catcher we want you people G.O.N.E.
