For Democrats, this midterm election was A MESS. In my home state of Illinois, which is traditionally blue, we put a Republican in office. Bruce Rauner is the first GOP governor that we’ve had in 16 years. Republicans gained 7 seats in the Senate and are now the majority there too, giving them control of Congress (they run the House).
Where did we drop the ball, liberals? WHAT DID WE DO OR NOT DO? Who do I blame?? Did we take naps and forget to vote? I know we lost because of a combination of voter apathy, voter suppression and who the heck knows what but this tantrum I’m throwing is well-earned. We dropped the ball so hard that I think it was punted out the park, ran over by a car and again by a truck.
One thing that’s obvious, though, is that President Obama is going to have an even tougher time getting things done in the next two years. He was already having to pull teeth to get Congress to do their jobs. Now with Republicans running thangs, he’s going to have to use all his Executive Orders and vetoing power. Barack needs to order ALL THE PENS, crack his knuckles and get to signing things.
