Republicans get swept
Posted by thebosun on November 8, 2006
The night began as a squeaker, but it led to a new House speaker. In a historic political evening, Democrats swept Republicans out of power in the House of Representatives for the first since the 1994 Republican revolution that made Newt Gingrich the speaker. WND.
Why we ask? Perhaps politician’s greed, perversion, and gross incompetence came between the Republican party and its constituents.
Lot and lots of pundits on the conservative side of the house woke up this morning with egg on their faces. Howard Dean’s “get it now” activists party won the election. Now we are going to have to live with the outcome.
Folk, the Republican party failed us. Many of our fellow constituents walked away or did not show up to vote. If and when the Republican party decides that morals, values, and ethics are important we will regain our composure. Otherwise, our society and political parties will continue to decline.
I am pissed that the Republican party fell apart. This loss of focus and direction has sent a message to our international allies and also to those who wish for our demise. I am not sure what the coming months and years are going to bring us. To the American people, watch out what you wish for.
The dust has not yet settled and republican pundit heads are beginning to role. Today, President Bush said he need for “fresh eyes” on the situation in Iraq. So, Rumsfeld resigned. Of course President Bush was not forthcoming with the American people; he insisted that Rumsfeld resignation was not a direct result of the outcome of yesterday’s elections. Mr. President are you serious? Your party has lost congress in two short years. This election cycle has been a real joke.
Time for a complete makeover of the Republican party, if you ask me. But then again, most of you didn’t.
