I'm Sick and Tired...

I’m sick and tired of liberal news pundits trying to make excuses and avoid the reality of the historic losses Democrats suffered at the hands of Republicans (or was it at the hands of Obama).

There is only one reason the Democrats were shellacked and his name is Barrack Hussein Obama and his extremists in congress and their sticking the American voters in the eye with their extremist bills.

Not only did 63 (so far) of all congressional seats held by Democrats turn Republican, but Republicans won 19 state legislative chambers while Democrats won zero. Around 680 legislative seats turned Republican last week. Only about 430 state seats turned Republican in 1994. Wow!!!

This midterm election was the worst Democrat defeat in history. You could argue that there would have been Republican momentum in this election just due to the economy, but there is no denying that what pushed this wave over the top was the extremist policies of this president.

Republicans picked up eleven governorships from the Democrats. This is an unprecedented and historic party turnover.

National news anchors (liberal pundits) and Democrats bring up irrelevant subjects like the Delaware and Nevada Senate races, the Tea Party, exit polls and other distractions. The fact is most of the Senate seats lost by Republican challengers were already held by Democrats from almost exclusively Democrat states.

All of this is just to distract attention away from the extremist Democrat party and the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Barrack Obama and Obamacare. When will we have an election where liberal extremists will not refer to the electorate as angry, hormonal teenagers, emotional and the like? These people just don’t get it.

The 2010 midterm election was a referendum and repudiation of Barrack Obama and other extremists and not for love of the GOP. We just don’t have anywhere else to go. If voters just thought that it didn’t matter which party they elect the outcome would be the same, then we wouldn’t have seen record voter turnout for a midterm election.

Instead independents and conservatives that don’t believe in extremist policies turned out to vote out every Democrat possible and not necessarily to vote for GOP policies.
