    Media singing the same post-election tune

    Media singing the same post-election tune

    2014 is no guarantee of 2016 success, okay?!

    Desperate to find a silver lining in the 2014 Midterm shellacking, the media has come up with a new mantra: “The GOP’s victory is short lived.”

    2016 is the GOP’s to lose, and I would never put it past the Republicans to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory; but to act as though a Republican loss of the Senate in 2016 is a forgone conclusion is premature at best.

    Yes, the map will be different, and yes, the GOP has no policy agenda carved in stone, yet neither of these ensure defeat in 2016. The truth is very simple: no one knows what will happen in 2016. And yet…

    “We were destroyed in the Midterms, what do we say?! What should we write?!”
    “I know, let’s tell everyone that there’s no way Republicans can win again in 2016.”
    “Brilliant!”

    And then they got to work:

    AP, Reuters, the WP, and the two Times are also busy writing articles to create friction between the mainstream GOP and Tea Party. They will continue using these and other themes to see which one works best to produce in-fighting or discouragement among party members. After all, it’s their job.

    Yes, the Senate is the GOP ‘establishment’s to lose — if we allow them the opportunity to be in charge. Key word here: ‘we.’

    This is OUR party. WE fire and hire.

    It’s time to do some firing.
