HA! I have to laugh, the pubbies are angry that our President is not taking their win too

seriously. Did they think he was going to stand up there with tears in his eyes and cowtow to them? Their win is no mandate, Citizens United aided them and to tell the truth I really can't see much of a change coming in the operation of the Senate. Cruz will be snipping at Mitch's ankles and much of the same nonsense will still prevail...

When they lost in 2006, 2008 and 2012, Republicans were very forthright about how they weren't going to knuckle under, and indeed, they have done everything possible to grind the government to a halt. After winning in 2010 and 2014, they demand to get their way. Sorry cupcakes, it doesn't work like that.

See you in 2016, mofos. And you'd better bring more game than you did this year, when a pitiful 36% turnout carried the day for you. Any way you want to slice it, 20% isn't a mandate.
