I'm not surprised by the posts about the election thus far. The American People spoke loud and clear last night, and that message was against the progressive agenda. Yet it seems that folks like yourselves, and I believe the President (even though for now he is trying to seem flexible) are throwing tantrums. I believe the Republicans have learned from their past mistakes and from those made by Democrats these past 2 years and we will see some real fiscal conservative ideas to get this economy and country back on track. The question is will you and the President be willing to listen or are you going to insist that you know better than the majority of Americans and seal your fate in 2012?
The Dems/Obama made a huge mistake in 2008 not realizing that the vote was a rejection of current Republican leadership and NOT an endorsement of the progressive/liberal agenda. So far I feel the Republicans/Boehner realize that this is not an endorsement for them but a rejection of the big government run amuck. I think they realize if they revert right back to the Bush years in 2012 the pendulum will swing right back. So instead of throwing these temper tantrums why not see what the next year holds and see if maybe fiscal conservatism and smaller government IS the answer we've been looking for, because it’s been made crystal clear by most Americans that the progressive/liberal big government is NOT the answer.
