Keep in mind that your heroes won mainly in the House and they won just a few seats in the Senate. There was no "mandate" in this election for your party.

Poll: No mandate for Republicans

Now, I want to see the Republicans clean up their own mess and fix all the problems they created during the Bush years. Also, the midterm results were quite telling in the numbers who did not vote at all....and why they did not vote. I was actually glad to see so many Bluedogs in the House sent home.

This was an election to fire, not an election to hire. Two messages came across loud and clear. First, “Throw the bums out,’ was the battle cry. The Democrats in charge were not doing their job. But secondly, there was a veiled threat to Republicans. It was not “we love you guys,” but rather “we are going to give you one more chance. Don’t blow it, or we will look for options again in 2012.”

A new Rasmussen poll finds that 59% of voters indicate they will be disappointed with Republicans in Congress before the next national election. Voters are saying that Republicans don’t have their trust, but they are going to have to earn it. Obama has not been a bargain for American taxpayers, but neither was Bush.
Has the President lost his mojo? Democrats are saying there was a failure to communicate. But it really was a fundamental disconnect in not understanding the priorities of many Americans. The healthcare debate crystallized this lack of understanding. A majority of Americans favor the new healthcare plan. But for those who are over 65, 56% oppose any new healthcare proposals. They have Medicare and they don’t want to rock their boat with the threat of cutting Medicare spending.

The only ones talking are radical baggers and Repugs. The average turnout across the country was about 42% of registered voters. This means that about 22% of registered voters decided for 100% of the country. That given with the fact the number of registered voters is never near the number of eligible voters bodes badly for our country’s democracy. For this election, the numbers were estimated at 210 million eligible with 65 million not bothering to register. That reduces the 22% to about 15% of the population controlling the election for all.

Not at all! :lol: The subject content of this thread, which you started with your little graphic, buckshot, is about the midterms, not about the 2008 election. :lol: I thought by now that we wouldn't have to educate you but I see that you're the same old buckshot who doesn't come out to play unless his team is winning and then makes faux paux all over the board. :lol: :roll:

Actually, the turnout for the 2008 general election was historical in many ways, so fyi, buckshot:

Quote:
The electorate in last year's presidential election was the most racially and ethnically diverse in U.S. history, with nearly one-in-four votes cast by non-whites, according to a new analysis of Census Bureau data by the Pew Research Center.1 The nation's three biggest minority groups -- blacks, Hispanics and Asians -- each accounted for unprecedented shares of the presidential vote in 2008.

Overall, whites made up 76.3% of the record 131 million people who voted in November's presidential election, while blacks made up 12.1%, Hispanics 7.4% and Asians 2.5%. The white share is the lowest ever, yet is still higher than the 65.8% white share of the total U.S. population.

The unprecedented diversity of the electorate last year was driven by increases both in the number and in the turnout rates of minority eligible voters.

This was an election to fire, not an election to hire.

Boy, isn't this a typical right winged remark. Always on the "offensive," but when it comes to taking the "bull by the horns," they're usually taking a shit behind the barn. (and undoubtedly, drying off their little buns with our constitution... hence, the party of no, no,no,no,no,no,no,no, AND HELL NO!!) Seriously dude, when has the American people, hired the Republican Party to do anything constructive? Most of them, have been scared into having "Big Brother" hold their little hand, while their favorite evangelist, sleeps with their spouse!! If Boner was as serious about passing some decent legislation, as he is playing golf, most americans may go down to working just 40 hours a week, and possibly, have enough leisure time, to get a good suntan like him.

However, I MUST ask you, what are you on, and will it pass a breathilizer?

Two messages came across loud and clear. First, “Throw the bums out,’ was the battle cry.

Oh Christ Buckshot, not another God damn war!!

The Democrats in charge were not doing their job.

Boy, I agree with you there big fella!!... (and I'm a damn proud Progressive too) But you know what a real Progressive would of done in office, to make sure the Dems didn't lose the House? They would of gathered warrants, for the arrest of ALL of PNAC, found guilty of murder, and had ALL of them swinging back and forth like little wind chimes, playing "Amazing Grace." Can ya figure the rest out, you little Patriot (act)?

It was not “we love you guys,” but rather “we are going to give you one more chance. Don’t blow it, or we will look for options again in 2012

It was not “we love you guys,”

Oh come on Buckshot, what's not to love??

but rather “we are going to give you one more chance. Don’t blow it, or we will look for options again in 2012

Possibly one of your past "right wing pedophilia politicians" perhaps?

Don’t blow it,

You should of warned them about that, before they committed the crime. (but great advice nevertheless)

O.K... Put Sarah Palin out there!! (God, at least she's over 18)

Don't wait so long between elections Buckshot!!
Come back and "vomit" here, a little more often!!

...but since you won the house, please clean it up before you leave.

We'll be "waiting on the wing." (or under the house, in our bomb shelters, or under the pew at our local church, waiting for the messiah!!)

(I just hope I can count all the wars you "war pigs" are gonna restart, on only one hand this time)
