Tom Tancredo - Republican elites still don't get it

The following is an excerpt from Tom Tancredo’s September 4th commentary at WND:

One of the oldest axioms in American politics is that "all politics is local." Well, not always, and definitely not in 2010.

When a tsunami rolls a thousand miles and slams into a beach, each little pebble thinks it's a "local issue." The 2010 elections are like that. Local issues are being overshadowed by the tsunami of federal-budget shenanigans and an economic recession prolonged by Obama's mismanagement of economic policy.

Politicians who see only local issues influencing the 2010 elections are like the blind men trying to identify the elephant by grasping the tail and calling it a snake.

Millions of voters who bought into Obama's "hope and change" promises in 2008 have awakened to the realities of Obama's agenda and its impact on their lives. As the classic Bob Dylan song says, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows."

The odd thing is that so many Republican leaders are waiting for the 11 p.m. weather forecast instead of looking out the window. Hey, it's raining torrents. Put away your golf clubs.     More -
