Am I disappointed? Yes! Am I disappointed that we did so poorly with the US Senate? Yes! Yes!
So what happened?
Let's give Pres BO credit for getting his voters out. At the same time, he also ran a very negative campaign that divided the country with class warfare rhetoric.
Also, the election is basically a tie on the popular vote! Pres BO is the first president reelected with lower numbers, i.e. 49 vs 53% in 2008 & less EV's too.
The question is where do we go from here?
We have a very divided country and a president who has shown no desire to work with those he disagrees with.
Am I pessimistic tonight? No but we are in for a very tough time.
