Op-Ed: Bob Ehrlich: The 1st Tangible Evidence of a Big Red Wave Coming in Nov 2022



Two dramatically different takeaways from the off-year elections in Virginia and New Jersey are playing out in Washington, DC

On the Democratic left, the hardcore types are doubling down on their agenda changes (apparently believing that their most recent nominees were not progressive enough to rally the Democratic base).

All the while, they attribute the additional blame for their election debate to a secret but ubiquitous army of “white supremacists,” including now a growing number of African-American enlistees.

Here, the political playbooks do not seem to change. But at what point will the political appeal of an overplayed race card disappear?

For the rest of us (even those who live in the real world), the results are a definite indication that America’s passion for true progressivism may be short -lived, despite the best efforts of MSNBC ideologues on the contrary.

The reader does not need to take my word for the final conclusion, as it appears that a growing number of hesitant Democrats today want to pursue a more “normal” policy course going forward.

In fact, the adjective exploded from the lips of moderate Democrats who suddenly inferred their increasing vulnerability in the immediate result of the twins. election surprises.

All of this is good news for the country – if the advocates are serious and if the advocates are willing to endure a heavy dose of vitriol directed at them from woke bleachers.

But what exactly does “normal” mean in the context of today’s policy debates? Consider that key question as you consider the following:

Will there be a red wave in 2022?

Does “normal” mean restarting our domestic natural gas revolution that only two short years ago produced America’s energy independence?

Does “normal” mean that the Biden administration will stop nominating candidates calling for the collapse of our oil, coal and natural gas industry?

Does “normal” mean that Washington will now recognize the quality-of-life killer known as inflation is it here for the expected future?

Does “normal” mean Washington will stop spending money like drunken sailors? (With an apology to the drunken sailors.)

Does “normal” mean Washington will finally recognize a threat to the stability, chaotic and dysfunctional southern border – and do something about it?

Does “normal” mean that Washington will reject the notion of (megabuck) reparations for migrants who illegally crossed the border?

Does “normal” mean that public local education boards will respect the concerns of public school parents when it comes to the educational welfare of their children?

Does “normal” mean that our armed forces will once again embark on their primary mission of protecting the national security of the United States?

Does “normal” mean ridiculous proposals like “defund the police”Is appropriate to be thrown in the trash of history?

Does “normal” mean that cultural elitists and the legacy media will stop their campaign to discredit the values, concerns and attitudes of American workers?

Does “normal” mean that the masking requirements are not consistent and vaccine command who disagrees with real science can (finally) be repealed?

Does “normal” mean to acknowledge that the awakened and undisputed leadership is only inviting more Chinese, Russian and Iranian aggression?

I could go on, but you got the point.

Indulging in the strongest element of its progressive wing has yielded embarrassingly poor results in two trusted blue states in just one year into the Biden administration.

Whether adequate support can be formed for a course correction back to “normal” will be determined by whether the pre-midterm results are interpreted as only a crossroads, or recognized as the first visible evidence of re alignment next November.
