Now What?

The Democrats took a beating as predicted, and their fearless leader blames everyone and everything except the policies that his party foisted upon the electorate.  Of course, he’s overseas making more speeches with the aid of his faithful teleprompters.  Why am I not surprised?

Now that the Republicans have wrested control of the House, now what?

I have read the promises to repeal Obamacare, create jobs, and reverse the policies of the outgoing Congress and their leader in the White House.  Dream on…With the Democrats still in shaky control of the Senate and the veto pen in the hands of a Democratic president, that’s not going to happen. 

What the Republicans can now do is defund Obamacare, and otherwise stay true to their campaign promises of trying to undo the damage that Obozo and his cronies have done to the country.  Meanwhile, it seems as though the Democrats are imploding – the party faithful waking up to the fact that the country is paying attention to the antics of the Congress, and not liking it one bit.  Unless the Democrats realize that they work for the Electorate, the Senate will pass to the Republicans, and the “One” will be a one-term president.

And what a blow that will be to the Liberal Democrats, the ones who believe that they know better than the citizens of this country! 

The bad part – we’ve got two more long years of these clowns to deal with.  And I hope the Conservatives that were just elected don’t ignore the playbook that got them elected in the first place.  There is a lot that can go wrong, and I hope that it doesn’t.  Otherwise, we are going to be in a whole hell of a lot more trouble than we are now.

  1. Tom,
    I agree.

    So many of my conservative friends actually believe that the new January 2011 Congress is going to work magic and repeal ObamaKare. It’s not going to happen as a 2/3 majority of both houses of Congress is needed to override the Presidential veto that BHO is sure to be using a lot of should conservative bills make it to his desk.

    Let’s be real. A change in Congress won’t work job miracles overnight. In just two short years, we go to the polls again. I am a realist and recognize that defeating BHO in 2012 will likely be an uphill slog. Say what we will, Obama is a formidable opponent.

    President BO does not believe what we said to him last Tuesday. He thinks he just didn’t communicate well with us.


    You are right, of course. It is doubtful whether the new crew can make the requisite changes…they may not even have the will.

    It’s a wait and see time now. if nothing changes then that means we, the voters did, a poor job of communicating to the government our displeasure to the people elected.

  4. Tom says:

    If the current crop of politicians are as tone deaf as Obozo seems to be, we’ll just have to clean out the Congress a little more.
