I'm still amazed Schilling beat Hare in my district.
28 years of democratic control in what has to be one of the most gerrymandered districts in the union (outside of Barney Franks district).
Obama can't like what Illinois is saying tonight.
R - 199
D - 133
I see 2010 just the beginning. 2 more years, we pick up where we left off.
The democrats took office behind anti war sentiment. They could care less about being anti-war though.
If they "compromise" and do another stimulus, that's not what people are saying with this vote imho. If they "compromise" and keep the health care bill in place that's not what these people are saying with this vote imho. If they "compromise" and do away with the Bush Tax cuts right now that's not what these votes are saying right now. If they "compromise" and enact Cap and Trade that's a bit more hampered than Obama would like that is not what the people voting them in want. If they "compromise" and give amnesty to illegals before showing legitimate and long lasting securing and enforcement of immigration laws that's not what these people are saying with this vote.
Do they want this congress to work with the president? Yes. They want them to work with them to get things passed that they are saying they want in regards to the things that these republicans campaign on, but on things they campaigned AGAINST they want them to work against those things not "compromise" to make those things happen.
I agree, Republicans need to come into this saying they want to work together...the tone to take with this though is wanting to "work together" to fix the things the public is upset with by removing them/stopping them and starting anew, and to "work together" to implement the things that the two can find common ground on.
If they go in and "compromise" by not trying to remove this health care plan, allowing a watered down cap and trade to be passed, allow a path to citizenship without tangible security and enforcement happening, compromise in more stimulus type spending, compromise in raising taxes or letting tax cuts go away then they're going to be "compromised" out of office come the next primaries.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Happy to see Cincinnati results as well as that is really home.
