Longtime U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu from Louisiana has lost her run off election.

This was predicted because She failed to get enough votes in the regular election Nov 4th.

And, many voters in Louisiana are upset with Obama and Democrats in general.

Chalk-up one more Republican going to Washington in January.

Democratic Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu defeated




BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy defeated Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu on Saturday, denying her a fourth term and extending the GOP's domination of the 2014 midterm elections that put Republicans in charge of Capitol Hill for the final two years of President Barack Obama's tenure.

With Cassidy's victory, Republicans will hold 54 seats when the Senate convenes in January, nine more than they have now. Republican victories in two Louisiana House districts Saturday - including the seat Cassidy now holds - ensure at least 246 seats, compared to 188 for Democrats, the largest GOP advantage since the Truman administration after World War II. An Arizona recount leaves one race still outstanding.



Oh Well.

Obama Has Completely Alienated Senate Democrats
by Bob Woodward


Some MAY consider this September 7, 2014 article ... Outdated?

HOWEVER

I don't.

-
OBSERVATIONS-n-OPINIONS:

Out of 46 Senate-Democrats Remaining, surely, 6 (at least or more) have smelled the coffee and begin voting against the progressive-agenda.

( i.e. drink-to-survive? )


ADDITIONALLY and/or OTHERWISE

State Legislators COULD Take Their Power Back

Republicans and Democrates base jumping



By Van Guilder

Like a thrill seeker parachuting off a skyscraper, the ignorant party line voters of the United States are feeling an adrenaline rush and bracing for impact.

Republicans and Democrats are getting riled up for a battle over the next two years that will leave loyalists on both sides more energized and further entrenched, but frustrate a growing number of Americans into non-affiliation or alienation. While foaming at the mouth for the fight and excited for nonsensical argument, deep down they know that the dysfunction is bad for the country and system.

The jumpers in this case are old and arthritic and, despite the parachute slowing the fall, broken ankles are inevitable.

The midterms was the US people rejecting the Democrats plan of action.

Obama is a lame duck so you are going to have Democrats running away from him so they don't get called out in the next election cycle.

The Democrats, specifically Obama, Reid and Pelosi took arrogance to a whole new level and I think it didn't sit well with voters. Well that and their constant blaming of Bush for everything, even though its been 6-7 yeas since he left office.

The article's posting date may be old but the information was accurate. The dissonance has only gotten worse with time. The monster is growing.

I want to see Republicans do something. Not just sit back, smile and say :We beat the Democrats" then throw out plans they think are good because Democrats didn't make them. Know what I'm sayin'? Do something about healthcare, don't just rant and rave about how bad Obamacare is. Repeal it. It's done more harm than good and is much too complex to "fix". I'm glad the Dems lost, their policies were killing businesses and bankrupting the middle class, but that doesn't mean we're out of the woods.

Obama will amplify his "get even" attitude.

He will use the Executive Branch to the extreme.

In my opinion, every last one of the Democrats should be removed from office. Every single one of them lied to us. They crafted Obamacare knowing full well it was not what most American's wanted. They screwed over everyone. They should all be sent to jail as far as I am concerned. Getting new Democrats may help as long as they do not try to change everyone because they think liberalism works. So far that has proven to be false.

Same story with Cal. Senator Boxer...

A few weeks after the election, her senior aid went to a press conference and was asked is Boxer worried about $147,900 in her re-election campaign filing?

Answer, she may not even run in 2016...

Democrats take notice:


After Democratic losses on Nov. 4 and Saturday's defeat of Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., the number has risen to 30. In other words, half of the Senators who voted for Obamacare will not be part of the new Senate.

Interesting.

I bet Democrats will support some changes.

But will Obama?

Actually, I think "next election season" we'll see MORE democrats 'dumped'; Obamacare will be in full swing by then.

Pretty much which is why 'amnesty' was so all fired important.

When people wake up to their crap. It's amnesty time with the wave of his 'magic' pen.

It's the only way the left stays in power. They have to make people from other countries 'voters'.

Which is why during the past 30 years there have been 7 of them.

Personally speaking I think any government official who supports this amnesty should be charged as coyotes / smugglers and thrown in prison.

I just can't get over his comment about 'it's a problem every time people are not getting treated fairly under the law'.

Says his laws matter, other ones don't.

Which is what led to his midterm defeat .

Looking ahead to who's seat is up in 2016:

www.periodicalpress.senate.gov...

 


I can see plenty of Senators the folks have an opportunity to put out to pasture...

Here are some I would cheer being defeated in the next election:

DEM
Barbara Boxer (California)
Patrick Leahy (Vermont)
Barbara Mikulski (Maryland)
Harry Reid (Nevada)
Charles Schumer (New York)

REP
Chuck Grassley (Iowa)
John McCain (Arizona)
Richard Shelby (Alabama)


Doesn't matter to me who replaces these antiques, I would just love to have new Senators replace them and get back to working for the folks, and not those who line their pockets...

I am adding Feinstein, and Pelosi to your list.


Hell I'd would even agree with your R list.

Personally speaking I think we should go back to requiring the senate to deal with the states they represent and the house deal with the people they represent.

The senate was never intended to represent the people.
