Don’t be overconfident, GOP: A razor may be sharper than an ax, but it cannot cut wood

Mid-term election fever is high. The polls predict a gain of seats for the GOP and a loss for Democrats. For sure, in a bad economy, the party in power suffers.

Two years ago, George W.Bush was blamed for everything. Now, the Democrats can’t use him as an excuse for their collective failure. To be fair, the Democrats are not the reason for this bad economy but rather they are the victims of George W. Bush’s eight years of mismanagement of the economy with the blessing of the GOP.

How can we define a victory for the GOP? The control of the US Senate and the House? The gain of more Senators?  For sure, the Democrats sound like a party who already conceded a loss. On the GOP side, there is a joy and confidence of winning more seats. But there is no guarantee of a significant gain of seats and winning the majority. As the Mongo of Congo say, “A razor may be sharper than an ax, but it cannot cut wood.”
