Michael Steele, Chairman, Republican National Committee, knows how things are done.

He says: The most important election of our lifetime is less than 4 days away. This is a battle for the heart and soul of our nation — and it’s a battle conservatives must win.

He knows that this is not about the Congress, but about the Governorships and State- Houses. This is about Gerrymandering and winning for years the big prize starting 2012. The papers do not say it – most media does not speak his language and shy away from the real thing.

Steele says: “Democrat lawyers, liberal shadow organizations and Big Labor are gearing up to challenge our Election Day victories in the courts. They plan on following their 2008 playbook when Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman was ahead by over 700 votes election night, only to have his victory ripped away from him by Al Franken and his lawyers in a lengthy court battle.”

But he knows “Big Labor” – that is the Labor of the old technologies that are dieing and will be replaced by new technologies – if not here then overseas – are voting Republican in order to stall progress, and keep their jobs for another year or two – damn the World and the Nation.

We are sure he knows about BIG MONEY tipping the scales – about David Koch and his brethren – but Steele calls fore – $25, $50, $100 or more contributions to support RNC Victory’s final 72 Hour voter turnout operation.

But really, who stole by lawyering the 2000 elections and might now plan for the gerrymandering campaign of 2011?

YES – THE US IS UP TO A GREAT AWAKENING ON NOVEMBER 3rd – AND IT WILL NOT BE CONGRESS – BUT THE REDISTRICTING THAT FOLLOWS THE 2010 CENSUS, AND THE NEW OWNERS OF THE STATE HOUSES WILL DO IT.

Charles Krauthammer, the great right-wing OP-ED columnist for the Washington Post, sees the coming reality clearly:

He says- “Over the next two years, Republicans will not be able to pass anything of importance to them – such as repealing Obamacare – because of the presidential veto. And the Democrats will be too politically weakened to advance, let alone complete, Obama’s broad transformational agenda. That would have to await victory in 2012. Every president gets two bites at the apple: the first 18 months when he is riding the good-will honeymoon, and a second shot in the first 18 months of a second term before lame-duckness sets in.”

Over the next two years, the real action will be not in Congress, but in the bowels of the federal bureaucracy. Democrats will advance their agenda on Obamacare, financial reform, and energy by means of administrative regulation, such as carbon-emission limits imposed unilaterally by the Environmental Protection Agency.
And we at www.SustainabiliTank.info say – better late then never. That should have been the way in the past two years but President Obama was too nice to do it.


But major congressional legislation to complete Obama’s social-democratic agenda? Not a chance. That’s why Republican Senator McConnell has it right. The direction of the country will be determined in November 2012 when either Obama gets a mandate to finish building his “New Foundation” or the Republicans elect one of their own to repeal it, or what (by then) remains repealable.
