Election Time

Now is the time when Republicans have to stand up, put their heads above the parapet and get shot at, are there any big political names out there who are prepared to have their personal lives ripped to pieces and examined in excruciating detail.

After the mid-term elections Nancy Pelosi and Barney Franks have been moved to the back burner, no longer are they competing with the President, bringing forth their own policies, a Democrat President can work well with a Republican House, expanding his own policies not fighting against the extremist in his own party, he has moved to the middle ground and looks good for a second term, so, who is going to take him on? 

I believe that most main stream Republicans will keep their powder dry untill 16, hoping that Sarah Palin will make the running, with the strong desire that Obama will destroy her and the tea party at the polls. The Republican party does not like fighting internally, who can go furthest to the right, and become completely unelectable. You have to speak to all of the country not just your own groupings, get people back to work, that is what will get you elected, dont just fill in the pot holes, build new roads.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.

    Republicans have to wake up & decide on a platform that is in line with the wants & needs of “We The People”. Then they need to get behind the candidate that can best present this to the voters without any wiggle room in their message. They must challenge everything the Dems say & not allow white-washing the issues!
