with usual participants on a local blog I will not hesitate to reinforce my pleasure at the outcome. I am always respectful whereas some of the other participants, not all, use terms like "libtards", "socialists", etc. for progressives and who were as early as today predicting a Robme landslide, I will not be able to withhold myself.
But you are right. We still face a Senate minority that, unless Reid "mans up" and changes the filibuster rules, will taunt and hold the nation hostage with the threat of a filibuster. We still face a House led by Boehner, who tonight said he will never go along with any form of revenue increase if that means a tax increase (the proverbial fiscal cliff), or someone else who might be even more intransigent.
I can only pray the Republicans realize the voters, contrary to what 2010 might have seemed, have decided to leave Democrats in control of the White House and the Senate. And that for them to have relevance they must demonstrate leadership and not obstructionism. But I think the Tea Party, the racist, homophobic, xenophobic haters, will continue to hold the House Republican caucus hostage.
So be prepared for more of the same. I wish it wasn't so.
