The Right and Wrong Lessons from Tuesday’s elections.

Some Right and Wrong Lessons from last night — any others?

Right Lesson: The voters turned away from the Obama administration and its handling of the economy.

Wrong Lesson: The candidates won because they “soft pedaled” their conservatism, as National Review and others in the MSM: alleged.

Right Lesson: DeDe Scozzafava was a disastrous candidate for the Republican Party and proved it by endorsing the Democrat in the race.

Wrong Lesson: Conservatives were the troublemakers in the race and cost “us” the seat. They should have left this to the GOP elites to handle. (In fact, the seat was lost with the Scozzafava nomination — and conservatives were trying to win it back.)

Right Lesson: Republicans have an opportunity to redefine themselves as more than a party of opposition.

Wrong lesson: This election was bad for Rush and Beck and Palin and others. (It is never wrong to stand behind principles, and I’m so glad they did.)

Right lesson: Republicans can win in Democratic-leaning states.

Wrong lesson::  We need to elect anyone who calls themselves a member of the GOP.:  It’s about winning.:  (That’s what they said about Arlen Specter.)
