      I never thought this would happen.  What has gone wrong?  How could this guy turn a country so proud?  It's over.  Carter would be better…

          It's obvious. The people have spoken!

                Yes, they may have spoken, but I don't think they have any idea what they actually said. Like parrots, just repeating phrases they've heard over and over.

                    God Damn LV is smart. 

                    I went through Reagan and it was a business experience never forgotten.

                    The pudding is can we handle the truth?

                        spoken as the true elitist holier-than-thou Messiah complexed person you obviously are, oh wise one.  I think for MYSELF, why don't you SPEAK for yourself –  instead of demeaning others who may not vote in lock-step with you.

                            LV, glewis is a self described "T-partying *physchodelic* Republican"…doesn't that just say it all?  So, really,  you were speaking for yourself…he just thought he HEARD you speaking for him :) 

                              A "wise, true elitist holier-than-thou Messiah complexed person" ? How DO you know this glewis character? Pffft…he's a little wordy,why not just call you a snarky bitch and get it over with? I hate the idea someone might be honing in on niche— if someone's going to go on and on,  all drugged up with horrible spelling— I'd rather it be me!

                              If anyone should be hearing things as a result of psychedelia, it should be me! (I don't believe his 'psychodelic' claim, though. Most of the acid-heads I knew turned out to be quite nice.)

                              But no, I've not made his acquaintance, and now he'll be so disgusted at my politics (Liberal! Pinko!) I probably never will. Another one scratched off the list for cause. I'll just be another snarky bitch to rail at.  I can live with that.

I sure wish they could fix it to auto copy the "reply to" name, at the very least…once replies move on down you just can't tell.

                                                                                Of course, the idea that God wants anything implies less than perfection, but that's a topic for another day.

I sure wish they could fix it to auto copy the "reply to" name, at the very least…once replies move on down you just can't tell.

Despite what we see here by BG and similar commenters- this outcome wasn't about turning against the Liberal agenda or taking back the country from that "bit…er Nancy P" and that " where's the birth certificate Kenyan!". [Of course, I refer to him with reverence as" the President"]  The election was about the economy and the worry it hasn't recovered enough. Only 9% this year !!…which is more than her party produced in 8 years and the prior 2 of congressional majority. Her winners and incumbents contend they will deal with their residual devastation in the same manner and with the same policies that created the mess. Perfect, it couldn't' get any better for Democrats…..and they've added the Teabagger movement!

                                                                                                      After the nation coming around in 2008 I have more faith in the intelligence of  'rational' Americans …the ones who are not prompted to jump and down in heaven or this hell on earth about Nancy and the Kenyan "getting theirs".  I read [ somewhere ] this vote amounts to the American people throwing the Republicans  keys to the car and saying…let's see YOU drive us out of this mess. I have no worry that Republicans can or will do anything that will be vote worthy come 2012. AND I'll be very happy for BG if the Republicans run her personal fav –  TV pundit Arkansas Huckaabee and the Tina Fey Doppelganger . This vote was a test drive and Republicans are America's crash dummies.  The more wacky they get, the more I relaxed I am.  They're bat-shit crazy and it's a beautiful thing for America.

                                                                                                          So My Dear Bonnie, I'll tell you the truth!!  DT and I know you CAN handle the truth! =)

Nancy Pelosi is gone as Speaker of 'da House!! *smile*
