That’s the note I woke to this morning,
My wife was still up at 2am, I had gone to bed early as I had a 4:15 Wake up for day watch; but I wandered out a couple hours to go; but Ls note said a lot; how happy and relieved she was the Pres got re-elected; she was Terrified 'Obama care' would be repealed; and the insurance company would call her up to inform her, "Mrs Murphy, you are a preexisting condition; and the fact our lives go on, shopping still needs to be done, the car will still need gas, and the rent will still need to be paid.
But I think she and I are both a little happier today, happy the GOP has been chastised for promising Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! And then delivering only anti choice legislation and gridlock.
One hopes that congress will now pull its head out of the sand; stop blaming the President for the cuts they insisted on prior to the last debt ceiling deal and actually take a step towards governing responsibly; it would be nice to meet the Ostra Bunny too.
No I very much expect the GOP will double down, they will insist to themselves Romney was not conservative enough and only a pure, radical, republican agenda can save the country and salvage their electoral prospects; so I for one expect less cooperation from the Congress; but hopefully now the Dems have learned their lessons; and will put aside fluffy talk about reaching across the Aisle; put the bully pulpit to use and hammer the GOP for their obstruction on the Fiscal Cliff, on the Debt Fight, and on every other issue between now and 2014.
Hopefully the Pres will put aside his love of Lincoln and Wilson and channel a little FDR this term; if they hate you, "Embrace their Hatred."
