American Elephants


Did Someone Mention a Wave Election? by The Elephant's Child

Well, the morning after! You must be prepared, however, for our friends in the media. They will be claiming that the American people have spoken, and they want more cooperation in Congress. The American people will be ‘demanding’ bipartisanship and a Congress that puts the American people before nasty partisan ways. Time for the Republicans to stop being so partisan and just get along. Uh huh.

You can plan on hearing a lot of a lack of an agenda on the art of the Republicans, but cautiously because too much emphasis would call attention to the fact that it was Obama’s policies that were opposed by the American people.

Congress did not pass much legislation. The House of Representatives did, they passed 384 bills, which Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid stuck in a drawer or put in a cupboard, or at least refused to allow them to see the light of day in the Senate. The Senate passed just 59 bills, last I heard. A budget was prominent among the missing bills.

President Obama’s team is trying to craft the president’s response to the election while carefully avoiding any offhand remark like his use of the term “shellacking” which he said in 2012, and is regarded by his aides as a big mistake.

Here’s the headline from the Huffington Post.
