    My goodness, such a show of pique! Someone might think you were pouting about the results last night.

    I guess Obama agrees with the American people on this...
    In 2008 Obama had 79% approval ratingsfor his presidency and gained control of the House and Senate for two years. Then he lost the House, now he lost the Senate, and his approval ratings are in the dumpster.

    Incompetence has consequences as well.

    He does not need to be a democrat to support the democrat party. Maybe take your own advice?

    I hope gloating from people like Rand Paul on all of the "Clinton losers" is the first shot of the 2016 election.

    I noticed a few days ago when you were secure in McConnell taking over--that you began to bash him.
    Your feelings on the filibuster play into that--always have the minority have their "rights"

    I hurt today but I won't walk away from my Democratic party like
    Republicans have done for the last eight years until they rediscovered who they were last night.

    I'm out to the great outdoors right now and the Sun to help my local committeeman pick up signs.

    With comments as I just saw from RNC chief Priebus gloating and bashing Obama,
    the bad part of me hopes Obama and the DEMs stymie the GOP every step of the way just as they did to us.

    Talk to you later and let's break the new records set by McConnell the last 6 years using the filibuster.

    We got beat on a local level here in Illinois as well as on a County, State and Federal level.
    People who think Illinois is a Blue state are nonsensical know-nothings.
    I've lived through the politics of this state for 48 years .
    If the Republicans are reading this as a mandate, they are 100% wrong. This was a hold you nose and vote for the least disliked party/candidate. At least that was my take on it. Watching CNN this morning, they stated the President's approval rating at 44%, the Democratic Party at 42% and the Republican Party at 39%. Approval of congress at 13%, I forget the exact favorable rating for Boehner, Pelosi, McConnell and Reid, but they were in the teens and twenties percent.

    CNN went on and on. The fact was neither party and the president, congress is well liked. But the president was the face of the election. Then according to the exit polls Republicans won the white vote 60-38 vs. Romney receiving 57% back in 2012. Republicans lost the black vote 89-10 but in 2012 they had lost it 94-5. Hispanics, Republicans lost them 36-62 whereas Romney lost them 27-72. Women went Democratic 51-47 vs. 53-45 in 2012 and so it went.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Please. That has nothing to do with it. We're just trying to find a group of politicians that aren't complete sacks of ****. This latest crop? Sacks of ****. So, next cycle, it'll be back to the other party, for different smelling sacks of ****.

    The younger generation is catching, though. How many more cycles are the sacks of **** gonna get, before they get serious problems?

    I agree on Boehner, but I hope the GOP chooses someone else besides McConnell.

    I disagree. I think McConnell was made for this moment in history.

    He's extremely intelligent and has a grasp of every issue.

    And he has the job he always wanted--and dearly loves--good luck to him when I speak to honorable people like you and Beaudreax .
    About the only politician in Washington I trusted less than Reid was McConnell. I heard some of his press conference picking up the grandkids from school. I told you a long time ago that I hope the first thing he does is to revoke the Nuclear Option Reid put in place and return 200 years or there about the tradition of the senate.

    If both parties are willing to work together filibusters can be eliminated for the most part. The filibuster use to be a tool to stop the majority party from going too far in one direction or the other. To prevent wild swings. Dole and Mitchell knew this, Lott and Daschle too. You could go back further if you like.

    McConnell isn't anywhere near the RINO Tea Partiers sometimes make him out to be. He realizes what makes sense for getting things through the Senate. Him "being made for this moment" is a bit much, but he is certainly a smart choice for Republicans.
