    It will be indeed. The political pendulum has swung once again. At least we have a pendulum that swings. Better than an Autocracy or Theocracy.

    lets take your steps.....

    1......it was already predicated long before the election that the GOP would take the senate......so you cannot claim any credit for that.

    2.....any legislation which passes the house and senate , will be labeled "right wing", by democrats.......so that is not a prediction by you.

    3......you have stated "Obama needs to grow a pair"......i myself do not believe this even needs to be said.......i feel with most certainly, that after last night" the democrat party and the president will continue to dig in their heels and become more defiant" so if you wish to say that's growing a pair, ...no that's his [personality].......as to the last part of 3....its just a "rant" on things not going your way as you expected.

    4......this is just a "hope" and another rant on the GOP.

    5....its not going to matter, who the GOP picks, anyone they pick, will be categorized as a "right wing extremist" by the left.

    6.....a "hope" of your own thinking is hardly ..........a step in any direction.

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    No, I can't think of anything that's happening now that they'll get less of w/the extra right wing kooks in the Senate. So please tell us all. We're waiting. . .

    The GOP will have to deliver something substantial within two years - seems like a lifetime in politics, but it's actually not a huge amount of time for legislation to make the rounds. Reconciliation will be a big deal. Just my thoughts. I could be way off base. McConnell had better hit the ground running, and he better be very careful about the direction he chooses.

    You won't have too long to wait. Patience. Some elections have yet to be decided. Which right wing kooks in the Senate are bothering you?

    WOW!!!! Where do you jump to the grand canyon conclusion that I am taking credit for the GOP taking the Senate? That is just amazing for you to say something like that!



    2.....any legislation which passes the house and senate , will be labeled "right wing", by democrats.......so that is not a prediction by you.
    Why in the world are you using this as some sort of really lame attack on me instead of discussing the actual post?

    If the wrong label is placed on something which does not merit it - it is something that could hurt the Dems so they have to be careful - and accurate about this. And I suspect they will not apply the label to "ANY LEGISLATION " as you state.

    3......you have stated "Obama needs to grow a pair"......i myself do not believe this even needs to be said.......i feel with most certainly, that after last night" the democrat party and the president will continue to dig in their heels and become more defiant" so if you wish to say that's growing a pair, ...no that's his [personality].......as to the last part of 3....its just a "rant" on things not going your way as you expected.
    Again WOW!!!! You chose to attack instead of discuss. This morning on many of the shows there is already talk of a WHite House that wants to work with the GOP in Congress and is willing to compromise. So my doubts about his resolve are already valid.

    I personally hope that we learn from the last six years of GOP behavior and do unto others as they have done unto you.

    But I doubt Obama will have the stomach for that even though his supporters would be overjoyed to see a warrior in the White House for a change.

    4......this is just a "hope" and another rant on the GOP.
    no - its a prediction.

    5....its not going to matter, who the GOP picks, anyone they pick, will be categorized as a "right wing extremist" by the left.
    and hopefully by the majority of voters. But your assumption is false EB. If the GOP would nominate a moderate with a solid moderate record, any attempt to paint them as right wing extremist is going to fail and backfire. If it is a right wing extremist whose record and statement bear this out - then its a fitting label.

    6.....a "hope" of your own thinking is hardly ..........a step in any direction
    WOW!!!! Again you opt to be involved in a petty attack on me instead of recognizing a scenario for future events that I laid out long before last night ever happened.
