John Boehner is now going to have to expand his vocabulary beyond the word 'No'.

If you look at the results of this election it was pretty much a majority of the country telling the current administration no.

Read it & weep, liberals. The GOP won control of the U.S. House & Senate, took over a dozen governors mansions including the biggest states, knocked out Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, the candidates backed by Sarah Palin won, and Brian Dubie is the next governor of Vermont. Republicans are going to balance the federal budget, repeal Obamacare, and switch funding from liberal entitlements and welfare to the military. Face it, you lost, we won. This is a Red country, if you can't deal with it, move to Canada.

Someone yesterday posted a link showing the many bills signed by Obama that (on the surface) benefit Americans. None of those bills would have ever reached his desk if there hadn't been Republican support. This completely destroys the allegation of the party of "no."

You might want to consider stop smoking your breakfast, teabagger.

GOP won the Senate? Can you provide a link for that little bit of news?

Harry Reid was knocked out? Can you provide a link for that little bit of news?

GOP took over the governors mansions in the biggest states? Perhaps you missed what happened in CA and NY?

Wow you must get your news from Fox. The Democrats actually kept the Senate, Reid actually won in Nevada and Dubie has conceded to Shumlin.

Why should anyone move to Canada? Did Rush Limbaugh ever actually move out of the country like he promised to if Obama won the White House?

You were right the republicans were the party of "no" and the democrats were the party of "yes".

Yes we'll raise your taxes and Yes we'll spend it foolishly.

I don't think you will have to worry now that the dems have self destructed like we all predicted...the republicans won't have to be like parents taking care of children and won't have to say no anymore.

Spend foolishly? Oh, you mean like spending and billions and billions to look for non-existent WMD's in Iraq?

How did the Dems self destruct? They hold the Senate, Reid is still Majority Leader, and, of course, the WH.

Problem with the Rethugs. is they are such losers, that when they finally manage to win a majority of something, they act like the own the world. When, in fact, they own nothing.

By the time Boner gets around to deciding what color the drapes should be in his office, he'll be voted out - again.

Well, at least they got far enough to stop Obama's agenda. Dems hurt people like me every time they vote "Yes", so it's good to see that their agenda won't go far.

On to 2012.

Well you may actually see less of that now that they will actually have to take responsibility for nothing getting done instead of blaming the Democrats it.

In 2012, the Dems will take the House back - and little Johnny Boner will have something else to cry about.

For the next 2 years, the Rethugs. are going to have to take responsibility.

So during most of the Bush years according to your logic it was the responsibility of the Democrat controlled House and Senate?

My vote, and I believe the votes of many, were a request to stop the current trajectory of our federal government. If Obama and the Dems wouldn't listen, then let's dump a truckload of opposition into their path, so they can't continue doing damage to us.

Frankly, I don't care if nothing gets done, so long as no more damage is done.

Who do you think will be the first talking head on MSNBC to say that the elections yesterday were actually a victory for the democrats?

Ha, ha! Exactly! Despite loads of evidence that the issues stemmed clear back to the Clinton administration (the failure of the Fed to monitor and regulate derivatives) and that Bawney Fwank was up to his eyeballs in stalling GSE regulation, which led to the housing runup and collapse, Dems insist that it was all Bush's fault.

Well, now it's Obama's fault - and for the next 2 years, it's Obama's fault.

Actually, nothing is Shrub's fault - why, we didn't even suffer a terrorist attack on Shrub's watch.

Rudy 911 - and other Rethugs.- have stated there were no attacks on America while Shrub was POTUS.

For all intents and purposes, the years 2001 thru 2008 never happened.

Except for Johnny Boner, I haven't heard anyone declare a victory. Surely not Sharon Angle or Christine O'Doofus.

We, the voters, lose. Now we will have to pay for Johnny Boners tanning sessions.
