The House is in Order
Probably the most exciting one I have seen in quite some time.
First congratulation it the Tea Party movement. Their getting behind the likes of Rand Paul and Marco Rubio was a good step in the right direction.
This movement is long from being over, so get use to it being around.
And congratulation to Ron Johnson for his victory in Wisconsin at taking down Russ Feingold. That’s a big move.
One of my biggest interest was the Illinois US Senate race pitting Mark Kirk against Alexi Giannoulias. That was a squeaker, but Kirk pulls it off to take Obama old US Senate seat. Even though Kirk is not the type I really hope would emerge on the IL GOP ticket, the alternative in the US Senate would be hideous, to say the least.
Toomey in Pennsylvania. That was huge
Brown in California Governor race- CA will never learn.
Nikki Haley, SC Governor Race- And they said she couldn't win... ok, right.
John Boozman win over Blanche Lincoln (YES)
Harry (Ass) Reid win in NV- Obama still has a socialist ally in the Senate
Brian Sandoval victory over Harry (Ass) Reid son, Rory Reid- Guess daddy's SEIU buddies forgot about the chip off the old (literally) block.
The Best of the Rest…
Alan Grayson defeat in Florida- No one could shut him up… except the electorate
Some will say this wasn't a referendum on Obama and that Americans have not embraced Republicans.
Part of that would be true. Embracing Republicans.
They have a lot of fence mending to do, nows their chance.
As I see it, it was a referendum to the following
WILD SPENDING and DEBT
CAP & TRADE
GULF OIL SPILL
In that order.
All on Obama’s watch and carried out by the 111th Congress.
