Republicans are widely expected to score big in today’s elections, but unfortunately not big enough to keep the Obama-worshiping media from spinning the results, something like this:
Washington (Nov. 3): Republicans were dealt a stunning rebuff in yesterday’s mid-term elections when they failed to take control of the Senate. Many in the party had arrogantly predicted the elections would result in GOP control of the upper chamber.
Falling short after having had two years to convince Americans it is worthy of controlling the Senate, the Republican Party’s failure to capture at least 10 seats is widely viewed as demonstrating that Americans believe President Obama and the Democratic Party are on the right track and should continue to vigorously pursue their agenda.
The Republicans also failed to capture the 100 House seats that many in the party, and right-wing pundits, had forecast. Although voter ignorance and confusion resulted in Republican control of the House of Represenatives, falling short of gaining 100 seats is seen as a further repudiation of the GOP and an endorsement of President Obama’s biggest accomplishment so far, the health care reform law.
The twin Republican debacles, fewer seats than hoped for in the Senate and failing to achieve a triple digit pick-up in the House, indicates that President Obama is positioned to win re-election in 2012, and may mark the beginning of the end of the Tea Party. The president’s refusal last night to comment on the election results is viewed as graciousness in declining to gloat over the Republican defeat.
It is not known when humiliated and chastened Republican party officials will meet to discuss their crushing electoral setbacks.
