    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.

    I don't want to be militant, but make no mistake, we aren't looking for a bunch of compomise.

    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.

    I think those that are voting in the Republicans in the house right now wants their people to find the common ground with Obama on things they can, but doesn't want them to just go along with the President with token compromises or compromise on principles that were the BASIS for their vote just for the sake of compromise.

    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.

    Richard Cordray-endorsed by every paper and every major LE group (I gave him several hundred) is losing to RINO and former Senator Mike DeWhiner-a f'ng disgrace IMHO

    David Pepper-also endorsed by every major paper-son of PG Former CEO JOhn Pepper (David's a moderate dem with lots of country club GOP support-he went to cincy's best prep school (same one Portman-senator elect) went to as well as Yale and Yale Law is losing to Yost.
    Ohio was just called for Kasich and I couldn't be happier. I grew up in Ohio and it was depressing to go back there the last couple years and see the malaise, high unemployment, and so many discouraged people. It is great to see Ohio returning to conservative values and talk about a repudiation of Obama. How many times did he visit Ohio to try and pull this out for Strickland? Should be an interesting press conference tomorrow.

    Happy to see Cincinnati results as well as that is really home.
