…And choose you did!

http://www.tsv-warthausen.de/prikotre/4472 A few days ago, I laid out the stakes and knew that the country was up against a choice of what to do and where to go.  We all knew it was in our hands and we made our choice.

http://www.vffl.at/lybistok/489 First and foremost, let’s be clear.  The choice was not in favor of Republicans by and large.  The choice was against Democrats, at least on a national level.  Senate races were anti-Obama and that is why the GOP will be taking over in the Senate come January.  That is also why we will see a few more GOP Congressmen and Congresswomen come January.

Visit This Link Still, this can be a time of defining for Republicans everywhere.  Now that they have both sides of Congress, they can pass things and send them along to the President.  They can then shed the image of the “do-nothing” Congress that has been so pervasive since Republicans won back the House in 2010.

All in all, Republicans can’t take this as a sign that people want to see impeachment or any other things that the extreme right would want to see.  These are not the things that people want.

There is an opportunity here and it is not to make the President look bad.  He does just fine with that on his own.  The opportunity is to govern well and get some things done.  If you can do that, politicians know that you will be rewarded.
