I’m Excited!

I am excited. I also feel relief, but I must admit, I also feel a bit disappointed.

I am excited because Democrats have to something now. And everyone knows they have no plan for the dominant issue, the War in Iraq, including Democrats themselves. It’s absolutely stunning to me that Americans were ignorant enough to vote for a party that has no plan for Iraq nor the economy and a only feeble one for immigration.

Democrats know America is a conservative country even more than Republicans do. Republicans took too long in Iraq, though they met tremendous setbacks, they spent too much and grew government – a Democrat trademark – and forgot the conservative stances that got them elected. In essence, we became little Democrats. For those that remain, we can’t afford to continue in that role. We must return to our conservative way.

Democrats fooled conservative voters by running as Democrats because a liberal could not have won many of the races running as a liberal. Eighteen of the House seats were won by less than 5,000 votes. Virginia’s Senate seat was won by less than 8,000 votes. Montana, at this point is still undecided but Tester is leading by only 1,500 votes. That’s one subdivision of voters, folks!

Will the freshmen conservative Democrat Congressmen foul Nancy’s plan? No. She contributed heavily to many of them and campaigned for some. They owe her. Additionally, she will tell them in their orientation meeting that if they have any desire to remain in Congress longer than two years, they WILL vote with her on key issues, or be replaced at the end of the term.

Democrats will probably become over-confident in thinking they won Congress by the whole country, not realizing how very close many of the elections were. Some voters that were interviewed in exit polls did not know who Nancy Pelosi is. Well, they are about to find out. I just hope they realize next time around that “teaching some Republicans a lesson by voting Democrat” is a vote for a Democrat. They probably didn’t know that, but they will soon enough.

Does anyone notice the cries for recount? That’s because Republicans take their losses far more gracefully than Democrats who insist on blame and excuses. Notice also there are no demands in the Senate for equal representation on committee’s with a Democrat majority. By contrast, I can see MSM headlines in the near future: “Democrat Leadership Vaults Economy to Unprecedented Heights” and “Change in Iraq has Troops Coming Home”

Harry Reid, Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and others said they wanted to “restore integrity, bi-partisanship, and civility to Congress.” In the last 2 years these ultra-lib’s have called Bush a liar, said they’ve hated him, and been rather partisan, uncivil, and lacking in integrity.

No other president has come under so much harsh critisism in a time of war than Bush. The Democrat mantra that Bush concocted the war for political gain is now plainly seen as nothing more than hatred of Bush because had it been true, Bush would have gained from it. Instead, he paid the price for protecting our country.

“Stay the course” does not equate to being anti-change. Instead it’s quite the opposite. It means we don’t quit. We don’t raise the white flag. We have spent the last 3 1/2 years changing things for the War in Iraq. We have adapted, planned, and moved forward as best we can. And we have experience many major and minor setbacks caused by efforts by terrorists and insurgents to kill innocent civilians and by Democrats trying to prevent Bush from succeeding by tying up the TSP in courts.

Bush’s speech today included a line directed at terrorists:

To our enemies: Do not be joyful. Do not confuse the workings of our democracy with a lack of will.

Ok. They probably won’t. But they will assume it to mean far less action on our part.

Hot Air has Rumsfeld’s farwell video. And Bush’s speech video. Another here.
Wizbang has blogger reaction. Wizbang, Wizbang, Wizbang, Wizbang
Stop The ACLU, Stop The ACLU, Stop The ACLU
Michelle Malkin also predicts minimum wage increase, Michelle Malkin, Michelle Malkin, Michelle Malkin:

The GOP lost. Conservatism prevailed. “San Francisco values” may control the gavels in Congress, but they do not control America. Property rights initiatives limiting eminent domain won big. MCRI, the anti-racial preference measure, passed resoundingly. Congressman Tom Tancredo, the GOP’s leading warrior against illegal immigration–opposed by both the open-borders Left and the open-borders White House–won a fifth term handily. Gay marriage bans won approval in 3 states. And as of this writing, the oil tax initiative, Prop. 87–backed by deep-pocketed Hollywood libs, is trailing badly in California.

John Kerry’s late-campaign troop smear galvanized bloggers and talk radio hosts, but it was not strong enough to overcome wider bipartisan voter doubts about Iraq.

Captain Ed questions the timing of Rumsfeld’s release. Round up. Final Thoughts.

Rush on why Republicans lost:

The Democrats, he said beat something last night with nothing. They advanced no agenda other than their usual anti-war position. They had no contract ā€” they really never did get specific. Their message was one of “vote for us; the other guys have been in power too long.”

Rush quoted Thomas Sowell as explaining that the latest example of election fraud is actually what the Democrats did ā€” they nominated a bunch of moderate and conservative can
didates for the express purpose of electing a far-left Democratic leadership.

No more excuses. Get to work.
