    Looks like the people of TX don't agree with you. The best state in the nation just got better. What are you going to say when that budget deficit isn't 25 billion? Bet you will run on to some other issue instead of admitting that you are wrong again.

    In Iowa, colleges, espeically community colleges, are bracing for the pain that will come with Brandstad (R) being elected. A lot of unhappy educators in this state. Other than private colleges that is. If his past is any idication, he will reduce funding to state schools and increase funding to private colleges. Private colleges already get funding from the state.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Very true. Texans certainly know how to reduce deficits. People try to slam Bush because he increased the federal deficit more than other president before him, but the man was simply ahead of his time. They will realize his financial genius in years to come.

    Republicans now control 1/6 of the federal Government.

    What I thought was interesting is that the GOP/Tea Party backed a number of lobbyists and former congressmen. So much for all that anti-incumbent/ reshaping Washington b.s.

    This election wasn't about the "will of the people." It was about the will of the wealthy corporate interests.

    Tea Party anger was used and channeled by the power-elite GOP.

    If they were going to 'reshape' Washington, why did they back oil and coal lobbyists for congressional seats??

    The Tea Party is definitely in denial if they can't see how used they were.

    Thankfully, the West stayed sane. Although, I think Whitman would have made a good Gov. Her concession speech was classy-- her supporters showed themselves to be classless.

    I think I got the OP up to date. If I missed something post it and I will add it. Going to leave this stickied for awhile longer.

    LOL, where do you get this stuff? Democrats outspent Republicans by a large amount yet the same old rhetoric from partisan Democrats claiming corporate spending turned the trick. Do you realize how foolish that is in the face of actual results? Notice where Democrats won, large cities where unions control the minds and votes of their members and political bosses run wild. Check out the election map and get back to us.
