    Alaska now stands to send the 53rd Repub Senator to Congress. Louisiana stands to send the 54th in Jan.

      Last night was a good night for some and a not so good night for some. However it turned out from your perspective, if you voted - you earned your *****ing rights. If not......keep quiet for the next two years. Ya didn't have a say....... ya don't have a say. Just sayin'......

          I like this election, guess it doesn't get much better, and I voted just like always.

              I am so happy that the balance of power has shifted to the right.
              I wish I had the faith in the Republican party to believe that they will do what they were elected to do.

                Me too. We've handed them the opportunity. I hope they use it wisely. McConnell made a couple of interesting comments last night. I hope he was serious.

                  I heard that 27 of the 60 senators that voted for Obamacare are no longer in office. Some because they decided to retire rather than face another election. Others because they were voted out.

                      I wish I could be optimistic. If Paul Ryan were running the House instead of Boehner, perhaps. Or Ted Cruz instead of McConnell. The leadership is weak on both sides of the aisle.

                      If history is any teacher, the President will NOT bend, he will go ever farther left (if that's possible) and play to his base. His vision of compromise is Republican capitulation.

                      If I were running the House/Senate, I would pass a bill TOMORROW to raise minimum wage to $9 and hour and make Obama veto it.

                      I would pass another bill to repeal the individual mandate in Obamacare and allow insurance companies to sell across state lines, and force Obama to veto it.

                      I would pass another bill to grant up to (and no more than) 5 million illegals a "path" to citizenship on a first-come, first-serve basis and include border security measures. But ONLY the first 5 million. And, make Obama veto it.

                      I would systematically prove to the world that he is unwilling to compromise on anything.

                        We should also put a price on green cards, like $1000 for every year they have been here illegally per person...after 6 months to sign up, aggressive deportation.

                      Maybe I'm more optimistic than you Cruiseman, but I believe we will see some similar type compromise bills passed, and done so quickly. I've heard a lot of talk along those lines that I've not heard before. I believe that there will be such measures not only to put the President "on the record", but other congressional members as well.

                        And today, this is what President Obama said:

                        To everyone that voted, I want you to know, I hear you,

                        We shall see...

                          I saw a short video on Fox News of nobama's press remarks this afternoon minutes after Rush's program concluded. Nobama sounded just as deaf to Republicans and as arrogant as ever. He admitted no responsibility for his government's failures, offered no new course of action, and minimized the election results by saying he heard the voters but also heard the two thirds of the electorate that did not vote.

                          Nobama is not going to work with the Republicans or anyone else. The narcissistic fool plans to continue doing exactly what he has been doing.

                          I am guardedly optimistic that McConnell and Boehner will take the bull by the horns. I have been just as frustrated with them as everyone else but I see now that their silence has been part of their strategy for winning this election. I'm not going to speak a word of criticism until they've had a little time next year to begin taking nobama's policies down. I'll give them a fair chance and watch to see if they do the job we expect of them.

                            I wonder if Harry is worrying if the Rs will throw him under the bus now and begin outing him for the massive theft he has carried out over his long career of converting huge parcels of federal lands in NV to private and then brokering their sale to his wealthy developer buddies. Gried has never had a job in his life but is worth tens of millions of dollars now.

                          Folks should be concerned, and even angry at President Obama's remarks on Wednesday:

                          to everyone who voted, I want you to know I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you too.

                          Compare that to what he was saying about this time a year ago (October 2013):

                          You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election.

                          Now, these are all his own words. So, let's see if we can follow the "logic" our leader uses:

                          He said if you don't like a particular policy, go argue for your position and win an election. In the election this year, make no mistake about it, his policies were on the ballot. Those policies lost; and in a landslide. His response - he's going to concentrate on the 2/3 that didn't vote, and pretend he knows their intentions.

                          BTW, if you don't like that response, you're surely a racist.

                            The next couple of years are going to be interesting, and dangerous. Obummer does NOT want the country to succeed at anything. One of the BEST things to come out of this election is to tell that sniveling, crooked, arrogant little thief, Harry Reid.....YOU'RE FIRED!

                              I think millions of us are anxiously watching and waiting for the first Constitutional show down between the muslim communist and the new congress. If McConnell and Boehner backed by their respective members use the powers we have given them to stop the wannabe dictator in his tracks we'll know the next few years will be good ones.

                                I really doubt the election will change a hell of a lot. Once these clowns get to the level of national politics, they are bought and paid for by the huge corporations and their lobbyists. Some serious term limits may help a little but in reality every other great society on the planet died from greed and corruption and this one seems to be following the same path. I'm kind of glad I am old enough not to worry to much as long as I can buy some gas and tires for the bike for a few more years.

                                  Ted Cruz (and a few others in a similar strain) has given me cause for hope. He went in, and did exactly what he promised us he was going to do. He took a lot of heat from it, including "old school" Republicans insisting that his tactics were going to ruin the party. He proved them wrong.

                                  Maybe they've learned something from him.
