I thought that the “wave” of 2006 was because of conservatives staying home. In 2010, the conservatives went back to the polls.
As an aside, I am so tired of hearing about the “turbulent” Bush years. The turbulence was entirely created and sustained by the media . . . to the point where people couldn’t stand to listen to it anymore and just wanted it to be over. Unfortunately, this attitude made the electorate easy pickings for Elmer Gantry Obama.
The radical left media in America has as much to do with this disaster as the vile little socialists in office!
Yep. 2006 was an ugly campaign, at least where I live. Constant bombardment of negative propaganda. 2008 was even more so. My dad, who's seen his fair share of elections, said that it was the worst he'd ever seen, going back to the 50s.
This year? Not so much. Maybe a couple of commercials a night. Heasrd my first radio commercial on election day. Even the negative ones (all lib) were pretty muted.
Interesting, I thought, that libs win on hosility, and conservatives win on principles.
