Seems like a good day for California. Michigan is completely Republican. I hope for the best for Governor-Elect Rick Snyder. He talks a good talk and seems to be a moderate. I hope he is sincere and leaves us some clean air and water. Our AG, Secretary of State, and 4 of 7 State Supreme Court Justices are Republicans. Republicans officially OWN Michigan.

Our country on the other hand is like I expected, more CENTRIST than ever. The promised revolution was a sizzler. Republicans have to put up or shut up. No more party of no.

i do not know how she would govern, but i do know a weasel whose ego like so many others is more important then the movement. I do not know how this will end but I have always had a belief that Alaskans were a rugged bunch. I guess not. What a joke. But the joke is on us by the world government people. I hope she is not like McCain, with his head up Lieberman's ass, who also won re election being a sore loser after a primary. Sometimes I wonder if these elections are fixed. The second American revolution is alive. The battles will continue but there are not to many more election cycles left to gain it again. Tyranny's tentacles have been spreading like a Janet Napolitano bath house carpet cleansing by double enema with extra fragrance for the sewage treatment smell. Goodbye freedom...

You do not understand. I believe in one thing or the other. It's a heaven thing. I will vote as long as I can for freedom. But as the same crap people run, there will be hard line people introduced to politics that will get support. I will vote for them if they are for me. Tipping points....tipping points. Drama baby..I still think we have a couple of election cycles at least. so don't worry. But you are not anyway. I will give yo an example of the problems in America. I live in Florida. My home is worth half of what it was. If I want to sell it it will sit for a long time. So I might have to cut maybe another third of the price off of it. Then I might want to buy somewhere else. America is in decline now. So I look at other areas of Florida where industrial districts or government areas are eliminating thousands of employees and viola...I make out on putting a jackbooted foot on a former owner of a better home at a much cheaper price. How do you like my kobeoshi marou. A star trek can't win simulation. One that I did not cause. The last depression had a reduction of up to 90% in home prices. In real terms. This is my revolution, jitt bagg. It is me. It is survival. It is not the inner city anymore. Tell me different. Convince me. I want near ocean property with high level building accruments at a cheap price. Do you thinK I can get it? Ask Barney Fwank and the boys....

Bernanke Finally Faces Greater Scrutiny After Republican Election Gains

By Joshua Zumbrun
Nov 3, 2010

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke may have to renew his battle to preserve the central bank’s independence after Republican victories in yesterday’s congressional elections.

With Republicans reclaiming a majority in the House of Representatives and eroding Democrats’ hold on the Senate, Tea Party candidates who campaigned in part against the Fed get an opportunity to call Bernanke to task for taking part in the unpopular financial rescues that helped propel them to office.

“There’s certainly going to be more hearings and more pressure,” said Mark Calabria, a former Republican Senate Banking Committee aide who is now director of financial- regulation studies at the Cato Institute, a policy research group in Washington that favors free markets.

One new Fed opponent in Congress is Kentucky Senator-elect Rand Paul, who has criticized the Fed for imposing “the sneakiest tax of all -- inflation.” He joins South Carolina’s Jim DeMint, an advocate for Tea Party candidates who backed an unsuccessful bill to subject the Fed’s monetary policy to congressional audits.

Republicans ride voter unrest to control of House

Associated Press Calvin Woodward,

WASHINGTON – Republicans reaped a windfall from independent voters and tea party activists to seize control of the House in midterm elections, gained seats in the Senate and served notice Wednesday they will confront President Barack Obama with a conservative agenda to cut government and spur private-sector jobs.

Voters hit the reset button on American politics Tuesday

By DAVID VON DREHLE
TIME

There is no more Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, no more one-party control of the Federal Government, no more Obama landslide map. The country awakens this morning to all the same problems - but the menu of solutions is up for grabs. "Yes, we can" has collided with "Oh, no you don't." And the future - including the 2012 presidential election - starts right now.

The swing voters who flocked to Barack Obama two years ago turned against his agenda, electing a tidal wave of new Republican members of Congress, and shaving the Democratic advantage in the Senate to a hair's breadth.

As the number of House seats captured by the GOP climbed toward 60, Democrats pondered a loss of historic scope, exceeding the 52 seats captured by the GOP in the 1994 Gingrich revolution.

If you take the President's 2008 victory map and subtract the states where his fellow Democrats were obliterated in major races on Tuesday - Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida - you discover that Obama's 2008 landslide has evaporated into a dead heat.

The results were a million light-years from the airy promises that Pelosi delivered Tuesday morning, namely, that her party would hold onto power. As it turned out, the Democratic losses in the House of Representatives may have been the largest since 1932.

GOP seizes control of key state legislatures

Jennifer C. Kerr, Associated Press
Wed Nov 3

WASHINGTON – Republicans seized control of about a dozen state legislative chambers Tuesday night, delivering a major blow to Democrats and picking up key redistricting powers along the way.

The GOP scored decisive wins in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. In all three states, they knocked Democrats from the majority in the state House chambers — putting the split legislative bodies into full Republican control.

In Ohio, former Rep. John Kasich also ousted Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland, and Pennsylvania's governorship went to Republican Tom Corbett over Democrat Dan Onorato — putting the GOP in the driver's seat for the upcoming redistricting. Ohio could lose two congressional seats and Pennsylvania may lose one.

Adding to their wins, Republicans pulled off double upsets in four states by wresting the state Senate and House chambers from Democrats in Alabama, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin.

The GOP also took the Iowa House and Minnesota Senate from Democratic control.

In New York, Republicans were seeking to take back the state Senate, but it was still too close to call.

More chambers were expected to fall from the Democrats, as voters registered their disenchantment with an anemic economy, high unemployment and an overall gloomy national mood leading up to the midterm elections.

Several states, including Montana, had races that had yet to be called.

Still, Republicans put their total take of chamber flips from Democrats at 19 early Wednesday.

Did my part in Florida.

With the control of the Senate still held by democrats and the President has his veto pen, let's see how much the senate and Obama move to the center.

Will those democrat senators and representatives still serving, but up for re-election in 2012, move to the center, acquiese to support change and vote with republicans?

Honestly must say that I thought more senate seats were in play for republicans.

BUT! congressional and governorships are heavily republican and that's where some movement will begin.

Obama was too far left. If he wants another term, it is within his power. We shall see.

If republicans want to hold on to their seats or gain more seats, they need to deliver.

Steny Hoyer could have made the difference. Nancy Pelosi was TOO alienating.

So glad she will be gone. The democrats need to bid her farewell and show the people, they have changed their path. Pelosi needs to fade away fast.
