This is truly a joyous occasion for all of us. Basically what happened is We The People let our servants know that we weren't happy with them and the way we let them know is by replacing them.
This wasn't a victory for the Republican Party, it was a victory for We The People. The Republicans just happened to be handy and talking the talk we wanted to hear.
But you Republicans need to listen up - you have 2 years to back up the shit you've been talking. It's not very long.
If you can't back up your mouths, We The People will vote your asses out too. Think I'm kidding? How do you think you got to where you're at?
WASHINGTON – Claiming power beneath the Capitol dome, resurgent Republicans gained control of the House of Representatives on Wednesday as the 112th Congress convened in an era of economic uncertainty. Dozens of tea party-backed lawmakers took office in both houses, eager to cut spending and reduce government's reach.
"The people voted to end business as usual, and today we begin carrying out their instructions," said newly elected House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, replacing Democrat Nancy Pelosi and transformed instantly into the nation's most powerful Republican in a new era of divided government.
