Are We No Better Than Hothouse Flowers?

I know conservatives have an uneasy relationship with Dick Morris but there’s one thing I really like about him that I’m not seeing a lot of from inside the GOP. That one simple thing is…he’s not afraid to be big: to think big and believe big and talk big and act big.

He knows that by setting the bar high, you’ll achieve more than you would by “managing expectations.” Big thinkers sometimes fail to reach their goals, but where’s the harm in that? Are we so fragile that one setback leaves us crushed underfoot and unable to move forward?

Good things happen to and for big thinkers because they expect them to — so they’re always ready to take advantage when fate takes a turn in their direction. We need more big thinkers inside the RNC and the WSRP.

Ten Senate Seats Are Clearly Within Reach

For the first time this election cycle, Republican challengers are leading in ten Senate races in the latest polls.

In North Dakota, Republican John Hoeven leads Democrat Tracy Potter by 43%. (That’s actually trending down a bit!)

In Arkansas, Republican John Boozman leads Democrat incumbent, Blanche Lincoln by 18%.

In Indiana, Republican Dan Coats leads Democrat Brad Ellsworth by 18%.

In Wisconsin, Republican Ron Johnson leads Democrat incumbent, Russ Feingold by 12%.

In Pennsylvania, Republican Pat Toomey leads Democrat Joe Sestak by 7%.

In Colorado, Republican Ken Buck leads Democrat, Michael Bennet by 5%.

In West Virginia, Republican John Raese leads Democrat Joe Manchin by 5%.

In Illinois, Republican Mark Kirk leads Democrat Alexi Giannoulias by 4%.

In Nevada, Republican Sharron Angle leads Democrat incumbent and Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, by 3%.

In Washington, Republican Dino Rossi leads Democrat incumbent and the country’s most liberal Senator, Patty Murray, by 1%.

I thought earlier today about how good it felt when this happened. I literally wept with joy that day. This year could be even better.

That’s not to say we can count our chickens before they’re hatched. Election day is just under four weeks away and who knows what can happen, but at this point, things are trending in the right direction. Dig deeper; give until it hurts and work until you drop.

(H/T @dickmorristweet)

Update 1: The latest Rasmussen poll puts Sharron Angle up by 4%, right at the margin of error.

Update 2: The latest Rasmussen poll puts Dino Rossi up by 3%.

Update 3: The latest Rasmussen poll puts John Raese up by 6%.
