  •  I agree they were in tatters in 2008, but by 2010 (0+ / 0-)

    they came roaring back with a vengeance, sweeping Dems out of office in statehouses and Congress both.

    Being in tatters following one election doesn't portend much at all for the next election.

    We should not be too complacent about the ability of some demogoguing person or organization (see, 'Tea Party') to stir up emotions and another resurgence.

    Yes, demographics are against them, but if enough people do not vote in midterm elections, there are still dangers to be faced from right wing radicals.
