The end result of the elections yesterday turned out even worse (or better, depending on your point of view) than expected. Republicans retook the Senate and shored up their advantage in the House. They won numerous governor's races. How did this happen? Why
did this happen?
For months, this election was being sold to us as an indicator of President Obama's approval rating. Never mind that Congress's approval rating (you know - the people actually
running for election?) was way lower than the president's. Never mind that taxes are lower than they've ever been, that gas prices are lower, that unemployment is lower than when he took office, that more people than ever have health insurance, that the whole "ebola" infestation never actually occurred. Never mind that anyone with a modicum of sentience knew that it was Republicans in the House not passing any bills and Republicans in the Senate filibustering everything that lied at the root of our dysfunctional government.
