Election Night 2010

November 2, 2010

Tonight Obama and the Democrat’s adgenda of hope and change that has been shoved down the throats of hardworking, taxpaying Americans was resoundingly rejected.  For almost two years they pushed policies disapproved by the public.  Cap and Tax, socialized medicine, and an apologetic foreign policy that projected weakness instead of strength.

The Democrats’ deafness to the public outcry spawned Tea Parties. People who never before had been politically active picked up placards, flags and expressed their unhappiness at the path the nation was following.  The protests were met with smugness by the Democratic elite who looked down their noses, and thought they knew better than the citizens of this great country.

November 2, 2010 is the day when people all around America were finally able to go to the polls and put a stop to Pelosi, Obama and Reid’s plans.    Some tried to characterize it as an anti-incumbent wave, but those pundits are disingenuous, it was an anti-Democrat wave.  Having a D next to your name today almost meant certain defeat, and many entrenched Members of Congress were given an opportunity to pursue life in the private sector for the first time in decades.

Watching the election returns was more fun than Super Bowl Sunday as more and more races went for conservatives.  I was especially happy to see that Monticello’s own Allen Boyd got throttled by Steve Sutherland.  Boyd’s game of trotting out his “conservative credentials” during election season and then serving as Pelosi’s do-boy finally caught up with him.  The defeat was historic as it marked the first time since Reconstruction that the district had elected a Republican to Congress.  Allen will now have plenty of time to tend the grass on his sod farm.

It was also wonderful to watch Charlie Crist go down in defeat to Marco Rubio.  Crist has served as our Governor for 8 years and during that time has shown he is a man of flexible principles that will do anything to remain in elected office.  Rather than take a beating in the Republican primary he jumped ship and became an “independent”.  Thankfully Florida did not believe his act and in 2 short months he will be out of a job.

Overall a Republican majority is assured in the House.  The Senate is still controlled by Reid but the super-majority they enjoyed is a thing of the past.  Once the elation of this amazing Election Night dies down the Republicans will have to formulate a plan to highlight the differences between them and Obama.  I hope they send a bill to repeal Obama care each week to the Oval Office for him to veto.  The more America realizes that Obama is not what he said he was on the campaign trail, the better it will be for the GOP in 2012 when the attempt to take back the White House.
