So, the mid-terms are over, and the R's came out with more victories than the D's. No surprise -- when the electorate gets unhappy, they throw the incumbents out. In this case, I think the cure is worse than the disease, but the D's had the Presidency, the House, and the Senate, and when people vote their pocketbooks, as they always do in a recession, it costs the party in power.
The party of "no" gets to say it louder now.
I think the D's flubbed on several fronts, not the least of which was making it clear that climbing out of the deep hole we were in wasn't going to be easy, nor quick. Once again, the victors did not win so much as the losers gave it up.
Be nice if it made a real difference. I don't think it's gonna.
It is what it is. The people have spoken, that's how it works here, you casts your ballot and you makes your choice. We get to do it again in two years, and I'm already not looking forward to the blitz of TV ads ...
