Midterms 2010: America's Changing Landscape, Tea Party, and Ground Zero Mosque

The 2010 Midterms are less than two months away, and America's changing political landscape is more and more evident. Recent Tea Party upsets within Republican primaries in states such as Alaska and Delaware goes to show that America is ready for a change.

Christine O'Donnell was a Tea Party backed candidate in Delaware who is vying for vice president Biden's old Senate seat. She won the Republican nomination in the state, and many claim that her victory is really a victory for the Democrats.

Other notable issues include not only unemployment, but also the Ground Zero mosque. Fox News, Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck all cover the issue, which has ballooned into a huge controversy. Recent tensions between Muslims and the western world were further compounded when a controversial pastor in Florida decided to announce his Koran Burning plans.

Support or opposition to the mosque could impact a candidate - so watch for views on this topic as well.

The Mid-term elections are becoming almost as important as the presidential election. Before you know it, it will be 2012 and we will be dealing with a massive re-election bid by president Obama.

    "If you have more than one Bible you will be taken into custody, and if you have a quantity of Bibles you will be given 70 lashes for sure - you could even be executed.
