In the ferocious struggle for Senate control, desperate Democrats count on candidates in six key races whose chief asset involves famous fathers: Michelle Nunn in Georgia, Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky, Mark Pryor in Arkansas, Nick Begich in Alaska, Mary Landrieu in Louisana and Mark Udall in Colorado are all the children of political icons, trying to mask their own elitist, Obama-era liberalism with frequent references to their more moderate, earthy and populist parents.
It’s no coincidence that the two most prominent Democratic governors on the 2014 ballot—Andrew Cuomo of New York and Jerry Brown of California—are also sons of popular prior governors. The Democratic reliance on political dynasties—very much including the Kennedys and the Clintons—is an attempt to mask present failures with nostalgic appeals to past glories.
Republicans should avoid that temptation.

    The 2015 Congress will begin exactly as the 1973 Congress began, with one goal:

    To end the President’s lawless government.

    The new incoming American Majority in Congress will legally and peacefully restore the rule of Law & Order over the Executive Branch, Senate and Federal judges.

    Barack Obama, his Cabinet, the Clintons, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and all the Democratic Party organized crime Leaders are going to prison for their legion of crimes against the American People.

    I haven’t been this happy to be an American since 1973. It’s winter for Democrats. It’s Springtime for Americans!

    God bless America! America bless God!

      Kick: Please tell me that you don’t actually believe that any of the people that you mentioned will go to prison. How would that work? Would Eric Holder suddenly decide to go after them? Would the next administration break with all tradition and go after the leadership of the preceding one? Lois Lerner might do some time, but it’s more likely she’ll make a deal. As for the leadership, things don’t work that way. If you’ve been following politics since before 1973, you should know better.

    A ‘dynastic temptation’?? Repeat after me: B — U — S — H.

    George H.W. Bush is a great patriot. George W. Bush, although he did much I disagreed with, is a fine man and a competent administrator (spare me the silly comments- everybody makes mistakes, but look at his successor).

    Jeb Bush? Also a fine American, a pretty good guy, a decent governor, but NO WAY would I support him in a primary- the only way I would vote for him is if it were him vs. some Democrat. I do not like the idea of dynasties- not in this country. That is why the founders rejected aristocracy.
