  1. Well, he made the elections about his policies. Now he knows what America thinks.

    He needs to blame someone. I wouldn’t want to be the Demokrap base who did not show up and disappoint him and Michelle — no fried chicken for them!

    All those Dems running from Obama. Now what will they do?

  2. I guess that the Presidential Daily Briefing will be a very short and gloomy affair. Oh, sweet morning, I rejoice over here !!! The Emperor is finally losing his clothes.

  3. It’s a state seat, but just to add to the GOOD news – Adios, Sandra Fluke. Maybe she and Wendy Davis can get jobs at Planned AbortionHood

    No Fluke: Sandra Loses State Senate Race in California

    LOS ANGELES, California — Sandra Fluke, the feminist icon who rose to national prominence after being called a “slut” by conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, and after urging that Obamacare require religious institutions to cover abortion and birth control, has failed in her effort to win a seat in the California State Senate.

    Fluke was defeated by fellow Democrat Ben Allen, a school official who dominated local endorsements. Early returns showed Fluke losing by a 2-to-1 margin.

    The race to fill the 26th district seat being vacated by incumbent Democrat Ted Lieu was down to the wire, with both Fluke and Allen–who won the primary in June–raising well over $1 million each.

    Local Republican-turned-independent businessman Bill Bloomfield backed Allen with large independent expenditures, including mass mailings to Republican voters in the district that urged a vote for Allen without identifying his political party.

    Fluke had briefly considered running for the 33rd congressional district seat left open by veteran Democrat Henry Waxman’s retirement, but was talked out of it by party elders who urged her to aim for more modest political goals.

    Fluke’s national profile helped her raise money but could not substitute for the deep roots enjoyed by Allen, who grew up in the area and had cultivated extensive relationships among party activists.

    Though the race for the 26th district seat came down to two Democrats under California’s “jungle primary” system, and will not affect the balance of power in California, it is significant for symbolic reasons, and may mark the end of what had been Fluke’s meteoric political career.

    For Fluke to lose in a conservative or swing district would have cemented her trailblazing image. To lose in the liberal haven of West L.A. is a harsh verdict.

  4. I went to sleep just fine, but when I woke up the first time at 4:00, my brain told me to get up and find out if last night was but a dream.

  5. Angus King, Maine’s new senator, ran as an Independent. Fox has reported that he has said he will caucus with the GOP. So, that raises our margin to 53 seats.

    • King has been hinting about that for several weeks now. I doubted he would actually make that move (he’s basically a soft progressive, votes with Obama about 96 percent of the time and thinks ObamaCare is the best thing that ever happened). But it looks like he’s going to do it. We’ll be watching his votes closely.

  6. I’m still in shock that the voters of New Hampshire would vote for someone who used the full power of the IRS to target New Hampshire citizens.
