Democrats still searching for a silver lining to the waxing they took last Tuesday can cheer up a bit. According to a new poll, the public may already be experiencing a bit of buyer’s remorse about the choices they’ve made,I submit that there was far more "remorse" prior to the election due to the suicidal spending policies of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama. Basically voters chose the GOP because the suck just a little bit less than the alternative...an alternative that in four years has added more than 1/3 to the national debt, much of that within the past 2 years.

I think the common fallacy here is that the country \"trusts\" the GOP more than the democrats. What it really is that the GOP sucks a little less than the Democrats. That's it pure and simple. Under the GOP when they controlled Congress, last in 2006, the largest deficit was \"only\" $485 billion dollars. That number has been dwarfed by the last to Congresses controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid...who have added $5,000,000,000,000.00 to the debt, that's more than 1/3 of the cumulative national debt of $13 trillion dollars.
That along with a tone deaf White House who pushed a health care seizure that the country doesn't want, led by a Speaker who said \"we have to pass the bill to find out what's in it...\" has led the country to repudiate that agenda. America, whether you like it or not here in the NY Times echo chamber, is a centre/right country. The Democratic Party refused over the past two years to listen to what the voters wanted.
You think this election was bad...just wait until the 26 GOP controlled state legislatures reapportion Congressional districts. You'll see ever more losses of House seats. Additionally, there will be some 20 seats in the Senate that now hold Democrats...more than half of which are considered to be \"vulnerable.\"
If the GOP doesn't FUBAR the next two years, you'll see even more losses in the Senate (10-15, perhaps 18) and another 30 or so in the House...think about that...Even should Mr. Obama gain reelection, the GOP would then hold a veto-proof majority in both Houses of Congress as well as a filibuster proof majority in the Senate.
