Two years ago Obama won re-election and the Democrat propaganda machine (war on women, everybody is racist, global warming, gay marriage, blah blah blah) seemed unstoppable. I was in shock and dismay for a long time.
Yesterday the Democrats got a serious butt-whoopin’ as voters roundly repudiated their tired cliches and failed policies, electing a flood of Republicans. Shouldn’t it feel better than this? Seems like we should be dancing in the streets.
Harry Reid is no longer the Senate majority leader. Hooray! Has there ever been a more corrupt, cynical, dishonest person in such a position of power? The best interests of the country and its citizens never made Reid’s priority list. The accumulation of personal wealth and political power were his only ambitions and he pursued both relentlessly.
Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell won his re-election bid, and will assume Reid’s role at the helm of the Senate. I should be happy . . . I guess.
Mitch McConnell is the face of the Republican insider club who promised he would “crush” the Tea Party. McConnell, John Boehner, and other old-guard Republicans view their sweeping victory as a death-blow to the conservatives – the very same without whose effort and money his Republican party could not have prevailed.
McConnell consummated his re-election by stating that he would not take any extraordinary measures to address our $18 trillion dollar debt.
Asked whether he would insist on more deficit-reduction before going along with raising the debt ceiling, McConnell noted that when the House of Representatives and Senate write their fiscal 2016 budget blueprints, there could be a “mechanism” for addressing this issue. – Reuters
Looks like it will be spending-as-usual in Washington, DC.
I’m trying to crawl out from under my wet blanket. What a joy it will be to have Joni Ernst, the soldier-mom from Iowa, in the Senate. She blew up the Democrats’ pet “war on women” mantra: “I’m a woman, and I’ve been to war. This is not a war.”
Scott Walker, the utterly fearless governor of Wisconsin, won his third election in four years, once more deflecting everything the Democrat machine and the unions could throw at him. He has managed his state prudently and efficiently, and treats his citizens like adults. If that isn’t vetting for a presidential run, I don’t know what it.
In fact, Democrats are job-hunting all over the country as voters continue to replace them at every level from school boards to state legislatures. My new home state, South Carolina, boasts a conservative all-star team that includes Nikki Haley, Trey Gowdy, Tim Scott and my own congressman, Mick Mulvaney.
Yeah, I guess it was a good week. But I have a message for Mssrs McConnell and Boehner:
We conservatives have expended great effort and money to stop the liberal Democrats’ assault on our Constitution and destruction of our economy. In some cases we had to, again, plug our noses as we marked our ballots. We saved your bacon, but not your pork. If you continue to disrespect and disregard us, there’s gonna be a showdown!

Bad dreamer, what’s your name?
Looks like we’re riding on the same train
Looks as though there’ll be more pain
There’s gonna be a showdown.
Showdown – Electric Light Orchestra
Take a minute to enjoy this amazing live performance by Jeff Lynne, the genius who glues together all the magical musical pieces known as the Electric Light Orchestra. As a musician, I marvel at the perfection of his production at every level.
