"This suggests that it's a race issue and I don't agree with that analogy."

So why did you make it? You're the one who brought up race, not me.

Face - the voters have spoken. The people who didn't vote can't be factored because we will never know how they would have voted. The fact is American voters are sick and tired of Obama's terrible presidency. Get a clue.

I think what true is pointing out is that obama haters are called racist by democrats because of the hate. It's called playing the "race card". It's deployed in an attempt to divert attention from his many failings.

Americanguy- I will repeat it for you slowly. A. fraction. Of. The. voting. Populace. Voted. A. majority. Of. That. Fraction. Voted. For. Republican. Candidates. (This is taking too long - try to keep up)

you cannot extrapolate that they are representative of EVERYONE. The reality is Most Don't Care That Much. So, of the ones that bothered to speak, about 55-60% voted for a republican majority. Get over it.

I am still trying to wrap my head around the expectation, no, DEMAND by some people that Obama perform like the second coming of Christ & magically bring peace, along with flying unicorns, harps, & bird song. Talk about living in a fantasy world...

Americanguy, Beth knows exact what I was referring to. It's just the same old liberal attempt to spin the discussion and blame Obama's lack of popularity in race.

Wow you really are full of yourself. You have as warped sense of yourself as you have of most other things. I can't wait until the next election when we also have a Republican president.

Americanguy stated the facts and they are correct. American voters have indeed spoken and that's the way our system works.

True, get over yourself. I didn't accuse anyone of racism. You've got a chip on your shoulder; quit trying to blame me for it. If you don't like people accusing you of racism, maybe try not accusing other people of having accused you of it, hmm?

And FacePalm is exactly right. The people who don't have strong feelings about Obama stayed home. They weren't motivated to vote. This is a pretty common phenomenon, so I'm not sure why you feel so threatened by someone pointing it out.

Yes some people didn't vote SO their vote didn't get entered and thus doesn't count! Damn!
SO the people who did vote determine the outcome. The outcome is people are sick of the Obama presidency... Look at is favorability rating!

Tru - seriously, YOU look at the numbers. Obamas favorability rating was in the 40s.
CONGRESS's Rating was in the 10s. Somewhere around 13. This vote was way more about the gridlock there.

Voter turnout was near record lows. That's a fact. But if you want to interpret the National 'Meh' attitude as validation for your passionate dislike of Obama, feel free.

Thanks face! I knew you'd see it my way in the end. And YES congress did have a low approval rating. But let's look at the party most evicted.

I interpret that more as a result of a passionate few who loathe the democrats rather than a "mandate" from an overwhelming majority. Republicans and Conservatives were the more motivated of the few voters who were motivated at all.

Clearly Americans have rejected his Marxist agenda. Now let's hope the Republicans listen to the Conservatives and get things done.

That's going to be the real key. These Republicans had better get it together in a hurry

Which conservatives? The neo-con/social-cons or the true fiscal conservatives. If the former, I hope nothing gets "done".
