Open Thread… What Happens Next? Or……. Massive Gloating Open Thread!

To start, I believe Obame will push his executive order for amnesty. He has nothing to lose now. Then the Senate Democrats will remove the nuclear option from the Senate – a 60 vote majority to end the filibuster. Remember, we have to “protect the voting rights of the minority party”. Your thoughts and predictions.


Let’s see what comes to mind…..

“We won, you lost. Get over it!”

“I won, you lost. Deal with it.”

“They could come along for the ride, but they would have to sit in the back.”

on and on and on…..

Now, again, they speak of “bipartisanship”, “cooperation” and “working together” – they were not interested when they held the majorities of both houses and even only the Senate.  Amazing what happens after their policies put them in the predicament they find themselves in.

Also…. both environmental and gun control candidates lose big – both victories for common sense and the 2nd Amendment!

    I think that every Dem who would refuse to stand up to Obama would see this as political suicide, and with him being the lamest duck in history I think many will decide to look to their own futures and vote to override any action he might try to take. I would favor a formal legal challenge to his ability to legislate from the Oval Office.

    I understand that there can also be some arm-twisting, regarding appropriations and so on, to put pressure on him or other Dems. He has illustrated that he doesn’t care what happens to other Dems, but there might be something that could be done there.

    Here’s where the folks over at DU think we’re headed. The multi-purpose word, “hysterical” comes to mind.

      Well, if they will calm down a bit, they’ll find that the four States which had a minimum wage hike on the ballot passed it; so it wasn’t totally bad for liberals last night. This is a problem we on the right have to deal with. It is monumentally stupid, but is just as clearly monumentally popular. We need a good message to take to the poor which won’t be “jack up minimum wage” but still shows them that we care about raising their economic level.

    Can’t we re-title this to the “Massive Gloating Open Thread?”.

    Some of the major figures in progtardia and their reaction to the “seizure” of the Senate and a historic majority in the House.

    Enjoy it.

    It was worth the rino/diablos just for this.

      Just to note when obola the Kenyan seized office in 2008 the count was 60 progtards in the Senate and 257 in the House.

      Now it is 46 progtards in the senate and 157 in the House.

      -14 and -100

      How is that hopey changey thingy working for you James?

    It just seems like the sun is a little bit brighter today. I liked what I heard last night from – I think it was Sen. Rob Portman who mentioned two things that might get done right away. A tax break for corporations to repatriate $2 trillion which is currently sitting over seas. And approve the Keystone pipeline.

    Two very good ideas which would be a HUGE stimulus to the economy.

      We elected the first black female House member, a new black House member from Texas, the first popularly elected black Senator from the South, a gay man from California, re-elected thumpingly a Latina in New Mexico, elected a Jewish Congressman from New York, elected the youngest woman to ever serve in the House…and we’re the racist, sexist, homophobic party?

    State of Nevada flips completely Red for State Government. Illinois Senate goes Red. progtardia now only has full control of 6 States. Even the rats lost their super majorities in California.

    It is no wonder I could not get James to give any predictions. He saw it coming and did not want tell us. Bummer. 😦

      It was a stunner in Nevada – as one pundit put it, Sandoval could have slept at his desk and got 55%, but he went out there and worked for a big party win, and he got it. First time since 1929 that the GOP controls the entire State government. Now we’ll see what kind of reforms the GOP will put forward…voter ID is on the agenda, and that has to worry Reid with 2016 coming fast down the pike.

    What’s really stunning is that this will be the graphic for Obama’s legacy.

    • Cluster November 6, 2014 / 5:02 pm

      WOW. Those two maps are a striking contrast. I think Pelosi and Reid have been as big of contributors as Obama has been to this “transformation”
