Overall, Tuesday was a huge step away from Obama and his leftward lurch.

Virginia was a total blow-out in a state in which Obama won a year ago; by a 60-to-40 margin, the GOP retook all the statewide offices. A huge step back to the right.

New Jersey was a definitive rejection of Jon Corzine and Barack Obama — no matter what the liberal so-called experts say. Obama threw in with Corzine, and they got creamed.

Here in New York State, with a moribund state GOP, we have won back local offices and county legislatures. It is a good sign — especially in a blue state.

The only negative from Tuesday was the loss of the 23rd Congressional District for the first time in over a century. That loss occurred because the GOP and the Conservative Party disagreed over the nominee — something that should not happen. We Republicans and conservatives need to be on the same page against the left.

What impact will these off-off-year elections have nationally?

You can bet that moderate and conservative Democrats in the House and Senate are going to now back away even more from Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, especially on healthcare. That bill may never pass the Senate now.

Nervousness abounds now that the left might drag the Democrats over the cliff in 2010 the same way G.W. Bush took the GOP over the cliff in 2006 and 2008.

Yesterday is a sign that voters are worried to death over the economy and jobs, and they have no confidence that Obamanomics is the answer.

The GOP and conservative movement now need to do more than just oppose Obama. They need to tell the American people how they would solve these vexing economic problems.
