GOP Wins Blogosphere Battle

This story is from James Richardson from the RNC and is posted at GOP.com - Cyber Pastor

All in all, the liberal blogosphere should take heed: You're not as powerful as you think and it's about results not PR.

The results are in and not in the favor of the liberal bloggers who were anticipating victory all last week. The voters have spoken and there just wasn’t a "Latta" love for Robin Weirauch’s extreme agenda. Robin Weirauch, if elected, planned on joining the most liberal ranks of Congress and the liberal blogosphere tried to enable her sad, third attempt.

For the third time voters rejected Weirauch’s “MoveOn Agenda” deciding to support a committed Republican. Article after article poured out of the liberal blogosphere. In fact, here are a few of my favorite quotes: “There's widespread discontent;” “The Republicans have done what they can to try and raise money on the Intertubes;” and “I feel kinda sorry for how incompetent these guys are.” I'm sorry but I must have read that wrong, Markos.

Make no doubt about it, Republicans have a strong web-effort but we, unlike extreme liberals, don’t need to constantly brag about it – we aim for results. The DCCC and liberal blogosphere gave this everything they had, it just wasn’t good enough. For weeks the Democrats have been claiming “As Ohio goes, so goes the nation.” Well, I have to say I agree with them. They discredited their own claim and failed in proving that Ohio and Virginia would provide fertile ground for expansion of the Democrat party.

Weirauch had heavy support from the DCCC, Daily Kos, Act Blue, Nancy Pelosi, Charlie Rangel, Harry Reid, and EMILY’s LIST. We were severely outspent in Ohio and Virginia and this is what they have to show for it? We came to the game to win. All in all, the liberal blogosphere should take heed: You’re not as powerful as you think and it’s about results not PR.
