The folks were apparently just frustrated that progress is just too slow.....
Just keep thinking that when we bury you!
I thought that the “wave” of 2006 was because of conservatives staying home. In 2010, the conservatives went back to the polls.
As an aside, I am so tired of hearing about the “turbulent” Bush years. The turbulence was entirely created and sustained by the media . . . to the point where people couldn’t stand to listen to it anymore and just wanted it to be over. Unfortunately, this attitude made the electorate easy pickings for Elmer Gantry Obama.
I’d have to say this is the best analysis of the election that I have seen. The Republicans should all read this.
Thank McCain Feingold for 2006/2008 and Obama.
Let them ROT in the rat-infested, bed-bug ridden, filthy shit-holes their marxist ideology has produced.
Their only "solution" so far is to drag everyone else into hell with them.
Good take, however, REDISTRICTING will now give Republicans an advantage, even if they screw up!
I don't think so.
The events of the last six months, thanks to the Tea Party philosophy, has energized millions of angry ordinary citizens of all political parties. They are not going away any time soon.
Among other things, I am sure that I am one among many who will keep track of the voting record of all our elected representatives, both at the state and fedral levels, to counter the totally cherrypicked BS we saw in their slick pre-election brochures.
Also evident is the breathtaking amount of cash spent by unions like the SEIU and that Soros doofus and government employee and teacher unions on behalf of certain candidates.
McNerney, Boxer of the Congress and Huber of the California state Assemby, and that total fake Jerry Brown come to mind...
Return to business as usual?
In your dreams. Parasites, both unemployed and on permanent welfare, start planning for a big change. It may take a while, but it is inevitable.
Can't tax what we dont have; and the stuff HAS hit the fan.
Wake up and smell the coffee!
the democrats had a 78 seat majority in the house, not a 54 seat majority. They won a bunch of special elections as well.
it was 256D-178R for the 111th Congress. Now it will be about 239R-196D or something
Our Texas StateHouse went from 76-74 Republican to 99-51, from split to 1 vote shy of 2/3rds majority and quorum. You have to look back past Reconstruction to find a similar advantage.
A return to the Norm? I don’t think so.
Redistricting is coming up, Texas is going to gain 4 new seats, and these 99 Republicans are going to decide how they are drawn.
Let the Dems go hide out of State this go around of redistricting to prevent a quorum: they’ll need every last one of them to do so.
