How We Got Here Today
If the GOP wins the election today, the party should remember how they got to this point
While some outlets are predicting a GOP "tsunami," your Examiner is more cautious. As of this afternoon, it is the belief of this writer that the Republicans will gain between 50 and 55 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives-more than enough to take control of that body-and 7 Seats in the United States Senate. While it is heartening for those of us on the Republican side to hear that many analysts believe that the GOP could do much better than that (and admittedly if that happens there will be no complaining in this space), we have to be realistic about the mood both in the country and in Tennessee, which seems to be one of "a pox on both your houses." Such a mentality does not generally produce swing majorities as large as what some are predicting.
