When the Tea Party movement began about 18 months ago, the so-called "elite media" basically told them to "sit down and shut up" with Katie Couric famously calling us the "great unwashed middle" of the country!
But as Michael Goodwin writes in the New York Post:
Nothing short of a revolution. That's the only way to describe the public upheaval that took place yesterday. Nancy Pelosi has been fired, the Senate is far more balanced and President Obama was resoundingly rebuked. Republican governors could control upwards of 30 statehouses when the smoke clears. That's what you call a consequential election. As predicted, the explosion of government cost and the economic slump were the driving factors for voters. The results immediately reinvigorate the checks and balances inherent in the two-party system and bring a needed dose of fiscal sanity to Washington and the states.It was evident from his news conference today that the President doesn't understand what happened yesterday. He still thinks he's in control of the world he sees around him. Unfortunately, he is afflicted with a severe case of reality myopia! The American people, for whom he works (this is the part he never understood - he works for US, not the other way around) resoundingly rejected all of the Obama agenda, particularly Obamacare. We rejected Barack Hussein Obama's administration and all its works. We rejected socialism. We rejected the manipulations of such as George Soros, Andy Stern, the SEIU and ACORN. We voted YES to American exceptionalism and we voted NO to apologizing for our country's magnificence.
Now let's get back to work and start to rebuild that which 20 months of a trifling popinjay have wrought!
