I’m not completely surprised that the GOP did well. With the country in the state that it’s in that would seem obvious, but of course nothing is obvious these days. The question is now what? Will the GOP play it safe and continue to play political games poorly or will they take control and unite the country with straight forward bills and proposals that no one could honestly deny.
I have little faith. How many times have the Republicans had some control and let it slip away. The fact is many republicans held their noses when they voted. There are only a few the inspire at all. But sometimes you need a tourniquet before you can do any surgery.
So, will weepy Boehner finally find some backbone? Will Tippy Turtle McConnell rise up and lead with conviction? I don’t know but I’m not giving up any ammo just yet.
