I just have to congratulate my US readers (that are mostly Republicans for what I know… 😛 ) on this victory. Let’s see if the Spanish people does this too on the next elections, though here is a little bit difficult, because of MSM and the nearly dead oposition… 😡
Republicans catapulted back into relevance and power Tuesday, taking majority control of the House and winning governorships all over the country. Democrats fell in dozens of House races as voters registered their unhappiness with the recession-wracked economy and the direction of the country.
In a pendulum swing of historic proportions, Republicans picked up at least nine governorships in states now led by Democrats, including many that will be key to the 2012 presidential election, and held on to Florida. They also took Democratic Senate seats in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Arkansas, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Illinois. Republicans needed 39 new House seats to take control; they won at least 60.
House Minority Leader John Boehner, the speaker in waiting, teared up as he said it was time to “roll up our sleeves and go to work.” He and other Republicans had framed the election as a referendum on President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their agenda. Boehner said voters repudiated their ideas and warned Obama to heed the results.
“The American people have sent an unmistakable message to him tonight and that message is, ‘Change course, ” Boehner said. “We hope President Obama will now respect the will of the people, change course, and commit to making the changes they are demanding.”
Let’s see if this changes US counter-terrorism strategy to a much more logical one.
