The Democrats now own the White House and a convincing majority of both houses of Congress. The pressure is on. There's no other party to blame for the persistent stream of Democratic failures and the Axis of Taxes - Pelosi, Reid and Obama - will have to take responsibility for those failures.
It remains to be seen whether the Dems have attained the dreaded super-majority in the Senate. A neighbor tonight said he hopes they do so that there's no question come the mid-term elections who's to blame for everything that will inevitably go wrong. I'm inclined to agree with him.
The American voting public has chosen to elect or re-elect the absolute worst of the Democratic party...John Murtha, Al Franken...God only knows what other dregs of humanity...so the picture is complete. We're stuck with them...thanks, idjit voters, you stupid fuckers!
Update: No, I'm not going to join others in offering faux "classy" congratulations. At the same time, I do wish to acknowledge Obama's unsurpassed political ruthlessness in winning this election by any means necessary, such as abandoning his pledge to accept public financing and opening up his credit card donations to any Tom, Dick, Harry, Franz, Ahmed and Ivan who wanted to donate. New politics, indeed.
I'm also not going to make asinine statements like "not my president", because he is, whether I like it or not. That's just how we, as a nation, roll. Obama didn't steal the election, and he sure as hell didn't make idjit voters in Pennsylvania and Minnesota vote for shitbags like Murtha and Franken.
On the other hand, I will say that the one good thing about this election is that a barrier is broken...blown to smithereens, actually...by electing our first black president. That alone speaks volumes about how far we've come.
Anyway, enjoy your one term in office, Barry.
Update: I may have jumped the gun on the Al Franken thing. The last I saw before writing this post had Franken leading Coleman, but they're now in a dead heat according to Politico with 42% each.
