I understand it is exciting for Republicans to win so many seats but why are you celebrating? Republicans were voted in because they are the lesser of two evils.
This is nothing like 1994 when the Republicans had the "Contract with America." Remember that only two years into Clinton's term, which he won over dissatisfaction of Bush's mild recession, voter's voted for a well defined vision of the same party that they voted Clinton to oust.
2014 is very different.
People are invested in Obama emotionally like a religion or ideological like Nazism. Yes like Nazism. The lefties that don't like children saying "under God" in "the pledge of allegiance" or even saying "the pledge of allegiance" had kids singing praises to Obama. That is really sick.
This man who had never done anything in his life promised that the people would have 30 days to view laws online before he signed them but signed the A.C.A., a.k.a. Obamacare, even after Pelosi said "we have to pass it to find out what is in it." Not only did the people not get to read it but the politicians didn't. In addition all of his promises on the A.C.A. turned out to be lies. Now people are losing their health insurance and those that can now buy health insurance find that there are no doctor's accepting it. They are buying something compelled by law with no one providing service at the other end.
Let us not get started on how racist he has been or his administration. We were expecting healing.
The people saw most of this trouble when they reelected him two years ago. It took all of his promises turning to lies and start hurting people to start losing faith.
The people have been spooked by the crushing lies and the Republicans only have one year to make changes because they did not offer a plan like in 1994; the Republicans just were not Democrats.
A year from now when the presidential race starts up the Democratic nominee will ask if Republicans made things any better. They will ask the people to remember how bad things were under Bush. Yes they will invoke Bush and blame the housing bubble and economic crash on him even though it has roots dating back to the 70's. Obama will probably not be mentioned.
The Republican presidential nominee will be framed in the Bush financial crash and the single year of Republican rule in Congress which will probably not end in success. Don't forget the sexism charges that there will be if Hillary is the nominee. Get Condoleezza Rice to run for president to slap down social issues but especially because conservatives love Rice; she is awesome.
The next two years up to the next election will also have an incredible amount of racism heaped upon the Republicans for opposing Obama. That is just modus operandi.
I am not saying that it is bad for the Republicans to win as they did. Republicans must man up to the task ahead.
Otherwise this is pre-2016-election-exultation.
