The GOP was counted as dead and buried not long ago. Boehner is perfectly capable of giving it all back.

Explain all the bills that passed the house that are still sitting on Reid's desk. For the most part it appears the Dems are the ones holding everything up. There are exceptions to every rule, but it is obvious the Dems have no desire or didn't to work across the aisle.

Very true; we supported an increase here in AR. Like education, each state has certain needs that may not apply to all states. That is why states rights are so important in my opinion.

We can start dismantling some of the onerous and destructive regulations put in place by obama/dems.

What a great night!
and the old lady in me showed up last night. I so wanted to stay awake, but 9pm the eyes went shut. Don't know how long hubby lasted, he is just getting up now. I don't usually turn the TV on in the morning, think I am going to jump back in bed and watch, what else? Fox and Friends? We flipped back and forth last night, from Fox to MSNBC. I do have to admit Chris Matthews can be pretty funny from time to time.

I want Obama to know he has no mandate and to put up his magic pen.

No one is even talking about the pounding that the Republicans put on against the Democrats at the state legislature level.

Yes the, GOP is becoming extinct as they reach historic highs.

Did you ever think that people woke up, or maybe even the ACA, instead of being this big thing in the sky became reality and people said WTF?

Joni Ernst is a bizarre woman. Anyone think her speech was weird and she's just a tad out of touch? Her competition must have been awful in order for her to win.

I slept a little better knowing the Republicans have the control now, though.

CNN still had better graphics and much more easy to read results than Fox News but the people on their panels and reporters at the assorted campaign headquarters...EGADS! I ran back to Fox News for the analysis. Blitzer, King, Cooper and Tapper were fine but Gergen (the worst), the commie from the Obama administration (can't think of his name right now), the former Obama Press Secretary with the commie posters in his kitchen whose name I also can't think of right now (was up waaaaaay too late - need sleep) and those snarly women, whose names (or faces, for that matter) that I never knew, UGH. I saw Newt Gingrich but I don't think I heard him say anything.

I couldn't remember what MSNBC's channel was other than it was in the high 100s so I never even checked them out. How were they?

The thing CNN did that I really didn't like was they actually had reporters inside with the people tallying the votes showing the CNN reporters what was on their handwritten papers. Isn't that illegal to have non-election officials in those rooms where the votes are counted?

Here, I'll start it out. I voted Republican because I know it is insane to love employment and hate employers. Because uneven prosperity is far superior to poverty for all. Because incompetence doesn't work. Because racial and class incitement is not a sustainable governing strategy.

Other than that, I don't know.

If you want some great entertainment this morning, look up the NY Times election coverage and go the "comments" section after the articles. Oh, the humanity! The Dem blimp crashed and burned.
