Off-course there is disillusionment, there always is when there is a loss,but truth be told the Dems ran from their own successes a number of them ran as rightist Dems and lost and I say good for them,why should any dye in the wool progressive show-up for them if they smelled like their opponents, the Progressives need to start fielding and targeting rightist and wishy washy Dems with much better people, they simply did not do their best either policy wise for the last 6yrs or running the midterm politics.

I'm confident all the press releases will be true and accurate and not conflicting.



Harry Reid might be present by tela-conference however.

McConnell will be fun to watch. He called in every favor he could and promised tons to people. He's probably the must bought and paid for politician in all of human history.

All House seats are elected every two years.

The Senate does 1/3 every two years.

www.telegraph.co.uk... few more

A black woman has been elected to Congress as a member of the Republican Party for the first time. Mia Love, a 38-year-old former small town mayor, electrified conservatives in Utah with her promise to take on “the Godzilla that we call the federal government” and won in the state's fourth congressional district. She will join Tim Scott, a black senator from South Carolina, as one of just three African-American Republicans in Congress. The Democrats count 43 members in their current Congressional ranks. Mrs Love's path to Utah - and now to Washington - is an unlikely one. Mrs Love was born in New York to Catholic parents who had immigrated from Haiti just two years earlier. The family worked hard, saved money and eventually moved to more prosperous settings in Connecticut.

Republicans will take over all committees.

Is it Gulp !!

I doubt it. Most Republican politicians don't like Ted Cruz. The Tea party is to Republicans what communism is to Democrats.

One minor correction there. Mia Love won a House race, not a Senate seat. Regardless, I imagine that one is driving the far left nuts this morning. That, and Tim Scott winning big in the senate race in South Carolina. Guess those Republicans aren't quite as racist and sexist as the Democrats keep insisting, huh?

Well IMO the timing couldn't be better for this. DC passed legal pot but because of the weird system there it has to be OKed by congress so will the republicans live up to their state rights rhetoric or will they show some different colors?

Will big government get in the way or respect the people?

Anyway the only people I voted for who won were Judges for everything else I voted for Libertarians, Republicans, and Democrats or Independents. I don't favour any party.

Sheldon Adelson the Casino billionaire swung the race for Rick Scott and effectively killed legalization in Florida it had to pass by 60% and got the majority by 57.58% so it lost by 2.42% that $75 million in attack adds from Adelson will probably buy Scotts favor to opening Card games up in Florida like he has been trying.

Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson is bankrolling Florida campaign against medical marijuana

Scott won with 1.1% of the vote over Crist so he owes Sheldon Adelson for that big time because Scott was tied to the no vote while Crist was tied to the Yes.

Unfortunately Pam Bondi held her Judicial seat.

The only good thing that happened was amendment 3 failed that would have granted more power to the Governor's office.

Lets see how more gambling works out here in Florida its not like that is addictive or destructive to anyone. (end sarcasm)

Here's my take. I hated Republicans my whole life and came from Democrat stock. I believed that Democrats served the common man and the Republicans served the rich. I learned that this is an oversimplification. Both parties have demons, made deals, and as professionals play both sides of the line. Voting for what serves them to retain their power. In recent years I have sometimes voted Republican. Neither party is perfect. What I did see with the emergence of Obama was a shift to socialist if not communist tendencies that could bankrupt the country...particularly in uncertain financial times. If the country is flush with cash...we can do more for the world and more in entitlements and charitable work for our own people. When the economy is tanked, we need to do more to encourage capitalism, invention, job creation and entrepreneurship. The last several years have watched the run up of entitlements in a time where there was no money to fund it and a punishment of business owners (most of them with business of $1M and under) which only serves to punish job creation. Forget the 1%. Those companies and those people are fine with whatever party is in power because they have the cash to navigate around discomfort. It's the 80% plus of companies that live in that $1M or so territory, when their owners are punishes or not incentivized that REALLY sink us. I am glad that the Republicans have taken it only because I hope to see things that help the middle class business owner and his middle class employees. The Uber rich (often named Republicans) only help the uber rich of either party and continue in either party to keep the lower class in chains. It is only those that will help middle and upper-middle class families and business owners that can help raise the tide that could help lower and middle class americans. IGNORE the 1%...it's a media stunt. The real money that changes hands in american is smaller businesses, smaller business owners, and those that employee regular Joes. Those are the people I hope to see served in the new GOP lead House and Senate. If it doesn't happen....the lower class is doomed anyway because we can't continue to fund them ad-infinitum. And the top 1% of businesses are going to do what they want to do anyway. Please, may those granted the power last night focus on the job creation engine of America.
