Americans Voted Against Obama's Policies

Tuesday, 11 November 2014 01:04 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Last Tuesday I watched what the academic experts would have called a “wave election” if the Democrats had won.
Unfortunately for them, this election was won by Republicans, which automatically means it could not have been a “wave election,” since the GOP is the party of angry, white racists that are being swept aside by the tide of history.
Instead the mainstream media and Democrats are trying to convince disenchanted voters that their vote was a demand for more bipartisan cooperation in Washington “to get things done.”
Meanwhile, President Obama is suffering from the delusion that the two-thirds of the electorate that didn’t bother to vote really supported him, so he wins again!
Yet if Americans wanted bipartisan cooperation, why did they defeat all those Democrats?
Republicans are on track to win 9 of the 10 Senate seats that were up — which is a result no one predicted — they added at least 11 seats to the existing House majority and Republicans captured 11 legislative chambers from Democrats.
Obama was correct about one item regarding this election. And that was when he said, to the dismay of Harry Reid and the Democrats up for re-election, that all his policies were on the ballot. For once he was in total agreement with the American public.
His policies were on the ballot along with the candidates that supported those policies and all were unmistakably rejected.
This ridiculous attempt to persuade voters that the results are a call for unity and action on the Obama agenda are either dishonest or delusional. Take your pick.
As Rush Limbaugh has already said, this election had a simple goal and that was to get things stopped: namely the Obama big-government agenda. Voters don’t want rule by imperial decree from the White House or bureaucratic fiat from government agencies.
They are angry that an unaccountable and out-of-control IRS investigates citizens based on their political beliefs.
Voters are angry about Obamacare legislation that was passed based on a lie and implemented to favor Democrat interest groups.
And voters are angry and anxious about an administration that refuses to implement common-sense Ebola quarantine measures because someone at the U.N. or EU might not like it.
Finally, voters are tired of being treated as if they simply aren’t intelligent enough to make their own decisions independent of government interference.
And that’s why the only cooperation Americans wanted in the wake of the 2014 election was cooperation between the House and the Senate to stop Obama, which is why they gave control of both chambers to Republicans.
