In the aftermath of the midterms, if you need more proof to convince yourself something stinks in Washington D.C, you are indeed developmentally delayed! Perhaps a more accurate appraisal, made repeatedly by no one other than that distinguished MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber-, stupid ( Hey Mark and Robin, perhaps your son opting for Georgia Tech over MIT had more merit than I originally thought!). How can this lame duck administration, the Democrat Party in general and it's legion of ultra-liberal, politically correct minions possibly conclude otherwise.They lost the Senate, failed to gain any ground in the House, got clobbered in the State's gubernatorial elections, yet arrogantly, smugly, blatantly continue to profess their agenda is consistent with the will of the people, best for the country. Give me a break! Apparently the ballot box doesn't speak loudly enough for these people to get the message. Confident that their leader, our president's phone and pen are mightier than our constitution. Is there no deceit, malice, sedition and unmitigated gall these people can heap upon us? Yet, we the loyal opposition seem to endlessly ponder, what to do..., what to do to stem the tide. Why are our leaders so timid, our opposition to these affronts so divided in mounting a course of definitive action.This president, his administration and their cadre of so called public servants are stealing our birth right, sapping our economic strength, diminishing our dignity as citizens and as a nation right out from under our very noses-, all in but a tenure of six short years.The doomsday clock for this Republic of ours continues to tick loudly and ominously for me! This great-divider-president intends to continue to wreak great harm upon us in his remaining two years in office-, of that we can all be sure! Please, you Senate and House leaders, you legislators at-large, you governors of like concerns and minds give me a straw to grasp, a comprehensive plan of retaliation and recovery to buoy my ebbing spirits.......

A rigid, egocentric, uncompromising ideologue hell bent on following to the letter Saul Alinsky's teachings to a socialistic end for these United States. That's what we are saddled with for the next two years if not more. Let's face it we Americans do not have a president committed to our fundamental democratic way of life, an upholder of our Constitution, a president dedicated to the proposition all men are created equal, one who will establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. We have instead, as said an ideologue of seditious intent, abundantly demonstrated by his near every word and action. You heard what he deduced from the midterm election results....he still has his phone and pen....nothing has changed! The people may have spoken, even shouted but Mr Obama didn't hear them. As for Messrs. Boehner and McConnell being potential bearers of bad tidings for he and his administration....bring it on he says in his confident arrogance! It's above their pay grade to really do anything about it he portends. As for the threat of impeachment....who would dare think of impeaching the first American president of color-, what an assure the first equally incompetent woman president in 2016! This is no quandary we are in, we are strung up on our own politically correct petard, our own naiveté and stupidity, swinging in the wind of our own impotence! We should be elated in the results of the midterms but I for one am not. Why, because our primary adversary, the leader of this subversion is not constrained by his oath of office, by our Constitution, by any reasonable and lawful respect for we the people's pleading to be unencumbered by his inappropriate, unilateral, oppressive misguided governing practices-, yet we the same people and our leaders stand by transfixed in flummoxed disbelief it is happening to us! We are lending a new dimension to flummoxed and impotence. I search in vain for a sign this is not the case....

I remain skeptical. Yes "We" won in a manner of speaking, by a mud slide in comparison to the avalanche I thought deserving! For me, too many of us failed to grasp the enormity of the dire straights our country is in, the tumult and turmoil our world is in and expressed our displeasure and concerns in this pivotal election accordingly! In my estimation we did little more than take our frustrations out with but a slap on the wrist of our President Barack Obama. I think it best said by Vaclav Klaus, former Premier of the Czech Republic, who so poignantly captured my sentiments of this moment, when commenting on Barack Obama's presidency a while back: "The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgement to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president".
We seem to lack the intelligence, the grit to get by politics as usual, adhering to the absurdity of the purveyors of political correctness; succumbing to the promises of something for nothing; racial, ethnic, religious and gender dividing differences. We've become our constitution's prescribed un-American Americans. I was hoping for so much more from these mid-terms, a ringing profound awakening of the nation as a whole. Are we now destined to limp along to 2016 having a determined uncompromising lame duck president obstruct, circumvent, impede, veto any efforts of the House and Senate that conflicts with his agenda. Do we once again find ourselves wavering haplessly down the middle of the road of uncertainty surely to be run over by the inefficiencies of a bloated, ponderous bureaucracy consumed by self preservation, questionable mores, bent on socialism and a lacking sense of country? All to the further detriment, if not the foreseeable end of these United States of America as we knew it! Was our victory at the federal level, touted to be by some, a clear mandate for the right kind of change? We shall see.
