Was this Part of the Plan?

GOP sweep: Big governor victories in Virginia, NJ

Independents who swept Barack Obama to a historic 2008 victory broke big for Republicans on Tuesday as the GOP wrested political control from Democrats in Virginia and New Jersey, a troubling sign for the president and his party heading into an important midterm election year.

Conservative Republican Bob McDonnell’s victory in the Virginia governor’s race over Democrat R. Creigh Deeds and moderate Republican Chris Christie’s ouster of unpopular New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine was a double-barreled triumph for a party looking to rebuild after being booted from power in national elections in 2006 and 2008.

That’s great, kid. Don’t get cocky.


  1. Now if only Republicans had some sort of plan with which to govern the nation. Then we’d be onto something.

  2. Yah. While I’m glad to see the Dems lose these offices, I’ll wait and see if we can tell the difference with Republicans in them. Most of the time I can’t, which is pathetic.
