DEMOCRATS TAKE HOUSE MAYBE SENATE

As the old saying goes, "give the devil his due, " they pulled it off you've got to hand it to the Dems the results are in and with the exception of the Montana and Virginia Senate seats and a handful of undecided House seats which have yet to be figured into the final results last night was a Democrat night. The Dems now have the House and unless there are a good number of remaining votes in Virginia and Montana that can shift either state the distinct possibility of taking the Senate also is within their grasp. Many are calling this a backlash against incumbants yet if that were the case then the Democrats would have suffered in the House as did the Republicans. So far all House Democrat incumbants have been re-elected. Actually I think that this election became a two fold turn around. First a general discontent with the GOP Congress and the slide over the past several years from the conservative platform that they were elected on and a general trend of a war weary America. Second a powerful Democrat spin machine headed by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Howard Dean with the continual assistance of the liberal media that convinced much of the electorate that the war is lost, not just Iraq but in general, the economy has tanked inspite of numbers that show otherwise and that the President has lied since he first took office in January of 2001. I had thought that generally the country had not bought into this spin but last nights results show otherwise. I will be the first to admit that the GOP majority in both chambers were weak in following a conservative agenda and failed in holding the very principles of less government and spending that they were elected on as far back as 1994 and even to the Reagan years. I will also admit that mistakes have been made in the war but the continual negativity that has been portrayed by the media and the Democrats without showing any of the progress and played down victories has turned much of the country against the war and brought with it a false sense of security concerning the enemy whose goals of destruction have not changed.

What does the future hold ? Nancy Pelosi will become Speaker unless a rebellion among the incoming Democrats takes place but politically I do not think this likely. Those who have been elected to House majority are beholden to Pelosi for orchestrating this victory and this very savvy politician will not let them forget it which should bring about her election to Speaker. Though they try to attempt to preach a moderate game plan she holds the power and control of all House legislation and you can bet that she will use that power to her advantage. Democrats have already promised that one of their first orders of business is to increase the minimum wage by more than $2.00 which will slow the economy upon its implimentation. Employers who have people on their payroll who are on minimum wage, ( a starting wage and not a living wage as the Dems try to spin), will make cut backs and raise prices to pay for the payroll increases which will change the employment picture, slow job creation and quell consumer confidence as prices rise to meet payroll demands. The next order of business will be to follow Charlie Rangels promise as Ways and Means Chairman to repeal all Bush tax cuts. Which equates to this and I will give but one example. A family of four making $50, 000 dollars which is not rich by any means now pay $1300.00 in taxes without the Bush tax cut that same income will have to pay$3300.00. Though the tax cuts are in place until 2010 because they have not been made permenant the House does have the means to repeal them as Rangel has promised.

Concerning the war Democrats now have the capability of defunding the war if the President does not follow their direction on how to prosecute the war. Their redeployment ideas range from going to Okinawa to being station just outside of the borders of Iraq thus in truth pulling out of the country. The insurgents and the terrorists would then have a free hand against a still unstable Iraqi Defense Force and gain a strong foot hold before troops could be moved back into the theater thus costing more American lives trying to quell the promised actions by insurgents and terrorists. Senator Biden has also been pushing for a four fold Iraqi government with each tribal faction governing their own with four distinct governing bodies and not the centralized government with all factions participating which is what the Iraqis have voted for. This plan will cause tremendous division and anarchy in the governing process which will totally destabalize the country and much of the region. Far more than what is already happening.

These are just a few issues that I see changing with the House take over and a Democrat majority or evenly divided Senate as now seems the case. On the bright side for conservatives and the GOP, Republicans now have the opportunity to re-establish conservative ideas and leadership within the party and to eliminate those who have grown drunk on political power and cause the slide away from conservatism. This will enable the GOP to once again position themselves with the electorate as they did in 1994 and with what will be happening in the House especially under Democrat control usher in a truly conservative GOP leadership in 2008. The next two years will remind Americans why they ousted the Democrats in 1994 as they in thinking that this was a mandate for Pelosi, Reid and Dean legislate from the left and their true colors finally shine forth.

Tough night last night to be sure. But defeat for us has always sown the seeds of greater victory down the road. Hopefully, we;ll allow some of the second tier leaders with fresh ideas and a renewed committment to take charge. I was disappointed we didn't do another contract with America and nationalize the election on OUR terms. But squeamish Republicans in the House were afraid of that and look how their cautious approach worked out.

So now, let's lick our wounds and allow the Democrats to have their time to celebrate. After all, it must SUCK to lose so often. But we'll come out of this defeat stronger and ready for 2008.

All of those so-called conservative Democrats who barely won this time will have to explain to their constituents why they had to vote with Nancy Pelosi on so many issues that are strongly opposed in their districts.

Conservatives will push for the leadership change if the current crop does not do it for themselves. We will be stronger and learn from the mistakes and we will not take for granted effect of liberal spin machine anymore. 2008 is still a ways off and the Dems will shine their real colors before its over which to will work to GOP advantage.

Ken, I hope and pray to the good Lord above that you are right! I'm taking this graciously publicly, but I don't really feel that way inside. This feels like a crushing blow... I hope to see it the way you do soon. Bless you for being so optimistic. I've always said I was an optimist, but now I'm beginning to wonder.

We got what was coming to us. We were not beaten by the opponent we lost because of the numerous scandels that mired different candidates throughout the country. The Dems will f@#k it up and the door will be open in the near future for the Republicans to take back the house & Senate. I hope when that happens that they actually do something with it. As a person who has consistently voted Republican unless the Republican was not prolife and their opponent was I am saddened at the state of our party. The RNC and many of the state & local republican party machines need to look in the mirror and make a decision to stop being hacks and greedy creeps who are only concerned with taking care of themselves. Just my $0.02

Gayle remember that Reagan was the eternal optimist. The GOP will realize the problems and conservative leadership will regain what has been lost. It has already started as Hastert is not seeking the Minority Leader position.

Dan, as you can see I agree with your comment. The GOP blew it because they drifted from the conservative ideals that placed them in office. Now they will revamp and the Dems who see this as a mandate for their agenda rather than a GOP backlash will show their true liberal face since they now have the power to use it and the Pelosi and Reid agenda will show the country who they are and remind them of why they voted them out in 94. The economic numbers that we have now, when they change for the worst as Dems push their agenda they will have no one to blame and the coutry will see this. Only problem is that the nation will be who suffers for it.

Result of 6 years with conservatives:

Smaller government - Nope - Spending bigger than ever

Taxcuts - Yes - While still increasing spending forcing a ballooning deficit. Hello! All you are doing is passing the buck. So much for fiscal responsibility.

Family values - puh-leese - Corruption, sex scandals

Increased security for America - Yeah right - All but the die-hard neocons recognize that foreign policy has had the opposite effect.

The only reason this administration has been able to get away with this for so long is a conservative congress turning a blind eye, looking at their own power as job 1.

I especially like how Cheney and Bush said the day before the elections 'The republicans will hold both the House and the Senate'. This in a nutshell reflects how out of touch the neocons are with what is going on in the real world.

In neocon land - Iraq is going great! There is a slight uptick in violence because '(insert arbitray reason here)' but soon it will all be better

In reality - Iraq is a quagmire created by a failed policy and a poorly planned military action

In neocon land - The more Americans that die in Iraq, the more worthy the cause. Sure there were no WMDs or whatever the original reason might have been for our act of aggression but now that we have sent almost 3000 American men and women to their deaths it would be unpatriotic (not only unpatriotic but aiding the enemy!) to even suggest that we might need to be doing something differently.

In reality - ... Uh, you can't be serious????

I think what sums up the failure of the neocon movement the best, the one thing that really sums up how failed an idea it is, is Cheney's remarks a couple of weeks before the elections:

- If he knew then what he knows now he would do the exact same thing again!

The exact same thing!

Madness!

Not surprising - prime characteristic of neocons is that they are very brave when it comes to sending other people's sons and daughters off to die - but when they have the opportunity to serve their country in harm's way they scuttle off leaving a big yellow streak behind them - Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz & all the rest of the disgusting chickenhawk crowd.

Just got the senate...now we dems can really clean up the mess. And we've got two years to do it.

Don't worry you Henny Penny's, you did all right in the Clinton years, in fact you probably made out like bandits.

Damn boys ya'll lost in an absolute tidal wave of voter dissatisfaction. The conservative movement is officially dead, killed by the neocon thinktanks that hijacked true conservative ideals. Reagan was the last good uncorruptible man ya'll had and I do not see his successor in your current ranks. If the dems keep running to the center ya'll are looking at least the next decade out of power. You guys had a golden chance and you blew it with corruption and hubris.

The conservatisim is not dead, nor will it ever be dead. You are confusing the rightwing, the Bush administration, and the republican party with conservatism.

Nor will liberalism ever be dead. They will both be locked in an eternal dynamic.

OK, look, I thought I was a bigger, better person than this, but after the heartbreaking defeat in '04, I figure I get to do this...

BOOOYAAAAHHH BABY!!!!! HAAAAA!!!!!!

IN!!! YOUR!!!! FAAAAAAACE!!!!!

Man, that felt good. OK, there. I did it. I'm done.

Couldn't be happier that now there will finally be some sanity to our nations government, some oversight, some accountability, some reason. May this balance of power continue for a long, long time.

And by the way, I honestly have never seen people concede defeat as graciously as you guys. Here's to many more spirited debates!

Our national nightmare of Bush in office is coming to an end - thank god for yesterdays's overwhelming defeat of the republicans. They are cheering all over the world for this and hopefully, this is a beginning to the end of the evil empire that bush and you crazy right wing republicans have started. You all have left us in an insane mess and now the democrats need to clean it up, but the cost to our generation and generations to come will be insurmountable. Bush's legacy will will live in shame as the worst president to ever hold the office and to cost this country its heart and soul. May god have mercy on those who will suffer the consequences of his wreckless actions.

Good and evil will always be locked in struggle. Truthfully, no one, no one lost. Oh, "no one = political organization, and America in general. Strife and chaos is where change takes place. Nothing grows where nothing moves. What was it that Woody Allen said about sharks having to move ahead or they'd die? Well, that's the US. So long as America is vibrant, everything is OK.

So the U.S. is a shark. Now that's right wing thinking for you. (yes I'm familiar with the Allen quote...)

I prefer soaring eagle, lion, or other some such. Not a shark.

I guarantee the republicans lose the next three elections because of this administration.
In a three party system with a real free press the republicans would have been run out of politics.
The phrase neo-conservative is not really accurate in characterizing this administration. Real neo-conservatives actually think defense as well as offense. This adminsitration and advisory team are what's called plutocratic fascist naziesque orwellian roveianlly infanticidal americans and they cost the republicans the next three elections without the democrats doing anything. The nasty economy before the next Presidential election will cost the republicans hugely, watch the numbers roll in, sorry all you conservative economists out there but the republican party in power now has really screwed you until at least 2016.
