I offer these two points about Tuesday’s resounding victory for Republicans
- Republicans didn’t have a collection of candidates who said stupid things (e.g – Todd Aiken, Christine O’Donnell, Richard Murdock, and Sharon Angle)
- Democrats spent too much time running for away from themselves
Looking ahead, I see some questions:
- Now that you won a campaign without stating what you stand for, so what’s it going to be?
- Can you govern?
- Will you give Democrats something in order to get something done (get votes) in order to bypass the obstinate in your ranks?
- Will you do what you should have done long ago – dispose the Congressional leaders?
- Will you become the party of no?
- What will the White House do?
President Obama’s proclamation of moving ahead on immigration via executive order by the end of the year is not a good idea.
Congratulations to Sarah Palin (aka The Nincompoop) for saying something reasonably intelligent. Now, new Republican Congressional majority in the House and Senate, please realize that Americans were not necessarily voting FOR any party; they were voting AGAINST the continued dysfunction and corruption in D.C. … although odds are high that she surrounded his phrase with bountiful rhetoric.
Hooray … no more ridiculous campaign ads … well, at least for now.
Some election notes from The Onion
- Single strip of “I Voted” stickers more than enough for midterm polling station
- Morbidly curious nation wondering how far Obama’s appearance will deteriorate in 2 years
