It's not that I'm upset about the outcome. I mean, except in cases of a tie you really can't dispute the people's choices in those contests were there were two candidates to choose from. But in those instances where a Republican ran unopposed, how could you expect anything less than a victory in such cases?
The Democrat Party either failed to put up a viable candidate or any candidate at all in some cases. Overall, I expected to see more Red across the country. I just hope the GOP starts to govern better instead of sticking to stringent partisanship.

That he still believes in what he started in 2008. Trully he is a Narcissist. The signs, behavior and his own worda. Bears that out.
Although.....when he comes back with that Pen line. Someone needs to check his ass with the Question. Do you think you are above the Law? As in whoa Mr President, did you just say you were above the law. Right there in front of the Media coverage. Then watch how much stuttering he does.
I wonder what it was exactly that he thinks he heard from the silent 2/3's of the people who didn't bother to vote? They didn't care enough to get out of bed; they believed the pollsters that it was going to be a Republican landslide and figured 'why bother'; or they silently figured that might be a good thing and why vote against it;.... or what?
The Dems were frantically trying to get Dems registered to vote, and to get out there and vote, but it didn't matter - they didn't care. Losing the Governorship of Illinois, Obama's home State where he and Michelle both campaigned, had to really hurt, but he heard the 2/3rds of the people? Hogwash! He really should think about the millions of people across the country who did care enough to vote, and consider why they voted the way they did! Whitewashing on his part can't change the results. Unusual spinning tactic, though, and a sign from him that he intends to keep doing what he wants to do, and the hell with everyone else! Welcome to la-la land - it must be a comfortable place to hide and ignore reality!
So, yea, 'I hear you, but I'm going to ignore you'.
Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.” A Doctor called to a radio show & said: "That's the definition of a stool sample"
"Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket," Barack Obama January 2008
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
Mornin Lady P. Well, he thinks those that voted only make up 1/3rd of the population and that all 2/3rds were still with him. Downplaying the overwhelming crushing defeat in all areas.....That He and his party took. Someone in the Media should have jacked his ass. Right then and there. Interrupting him and then putting him into that gotcha moment.
Obviously, Republicans had a good night. And they deserve credit for running good campaigns. Beyond that, I’ll leave it to all of you and the professional pundits to pick through yesterday’s results.
What stands out to me, though, is that the American people sent a message, one that they’ve sent for several elections now. They expect the people they elect to work as hard as they do. They expect us to focus on their ambitions and not ours. They want us to get the job done. All of us in both parties have a responsibility to address that sentiment.
Still, as president, I have a unique responsibility to try and make this town work. So, to everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too......snip~
Transcript: President Obama
I think he heard what people said with their votes - he just doesn't care.
The GOP would do best by making Obama's veto pens run out of ink. Let him veto hundreds of bills, regardless if the veto's can be overturned or not.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
