Yesterday saw a whipping that made Adrian Peterson wince. Ok, maybe that wasn’t right, but the Dems got waxed off at the polls without the common courtesy of a wax on.
I’ve been laid up on sinus meds, so I could hear the pundits all talking nonsense about the election. My assessment can be summed up in one sentence. The Democratic Party has the collective spine of a bowl of jello.
They ran from Obama like politicians running from a whore house. They let the Republican party control the message throughout the entire campaign. It basically looked like the Democratic Party tried to run a two-minute offense with only a center, quarterback, and a single receiver. I think the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man has more testicular fortitude at getting his thoughts, ideas, and beliefs across when compared to the entire Democratic Party apparatus.
One thing I realized with this election is that I’m tired as hell of politics and politicians. More than anything else, I’m tired of my fellow Americans who allow this crap to continue like this. I saw these notes from a Yahoo article that talked about preliminary exit polling, and it really makes me wonder if anybody takes voting seriously, or is it just an exercise in picking the opposite party every two years.
4. 53 percent have an unfavorable view of the Democratic Party and 56 percent have an unfavorable view of the Republican party.
5. 53 percent say the government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals.
6. 54 percent of voters disapprove of Barack Obama’s job performance as president and 61 percent are dissatisfied or even angry with the Republican leaders in Congress.
7. Seven in 10 voters say the nation’s economy is in bad shape, fewer than in 2012, 2010 and 2008 — but still seven in 10.Source: Yahoo
So, if I read this right, the Democrats are favored more than Republicans, Obama has a better disapproval rating that Republican leaders in Congress, more people think the economy is better now than it was in previous elections, but the voters that went to the polls thought that Republicans were the better option? If these numbers don’t show how weak and ineffective the Democratic Party is, then I’m not a middle-aged Black man raising a family in the South.
I wrote that I loathe some things about the current GOP, but I do have to say congratulations to them anyway. They tapped in to the fears or concerns of people and got them to vote them into office. Kudos to Tim Scott who became the first Black Senator elected in a Southern state since Reconstruction. The only party that has elected Black Senators in the South to date has been the Republican Party, so I’m interested to see how they work with Scott. As the party is far more conservative than it was when Hiram Revels was elected right after the Civil War, I’m also interested to see how welcoming all conservatives are towards him. Mia Love of Utah also became the first Black Republican woman elected to the House of Representatives, so I tip my cap to her.
Can we get off the seesaw long enough to allow one group the opportunity to straighten things out? I don’t see anytime in the near future where both parties are going to work together.
I’m glad the Republicans won majorities because they have to govern now. Show us what conservatism does for America. The last time the GOP had control over most of the government, we were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs every month. We’ve had slow, anemic growth under Obama and the Democrats, but we’ve had growth. I’m waiting to see what the GOP has in store for me. I’ve already seen what the Democrats could do, and I only wish they had the testicular fortitude to stand behind what they’ve done. I’ve only seen spineless slinking away from the tough road and battles thus far, and I’m one that likes to have leaders with a spine.
