Last night was a thorough repudiation of all things Obama, but none so much as Obamacare. People hate it now, and they're *really* gonna hate it when it hits the employer provided market.

...unless the GOP stops it.

So sure, Obama and his rump caucus can obstruct the congress from implementing its clear mandate, for two more years at most.

They're called basement Millenials. Young people unable to find a job, living at home.

Those are the voters you were counting on to save the status quo? Lol.

This was clearly a referendum on Obama and his administration.

We don't like the government spying on us. We don't like Presidents weaponizing the IRS. We don't like our borders treated like turnstiles, or our health system treated like a child's toy.

We've seen the last of Obama's fingerprints on our lives, And we wish God's speed to those now tasked with cleaning up the harm his toxic policies have wrought.

Gonna be tough to obstruct much from their basement offices.

Franken will be doing the same thing he was (nothing), of course, it's just he'll be doing it in the cone of silence.

Should be a pretty good gig for him, really.

Huh? Did SSM have an effect? Did any faithless Democrats survive in swing districts? Unless I've missed one, they all got their walking papers.

SSM mat be there to stay, but the DFL control of government ain't. Pretty good trade!

Ahh, but you're wrong RB. It already has....it already has.

Myron, I don't live in Minnesota, remember? We elected Tim Scott to the Senate and he's a rock.

Whatever mischief Dayton & Co. manage to slip by the GOP house majority will come out of the pockets of my renters. I'm guessing they are big DFL supporters so they won't mind.

Sure I'd have liked to see Franken lose but he'll spend the next six years working out of the Senate basement. I can live with that.

I'm guessing that's exactly what Wisconson is saying about Minnesota today.

I predicted the GOP would hold the US house, retake the Senate and their SSM vote would cost outstate Minnesota Dems their jobs.

How'd I do?
