Looks like Republicans take the House, Democrats keep a small majority in the Senate. Any thoughts? Whom voted, and for who?

EDIT: Does anyone even still go on Origin?

Obviously I didn't vote, but I sure as hell hope that the republicans change strategy and cooperate instead of obstruct everything.

I voted for weed, against eBay and even more against an HP f*ck up.

My thoughts?

You got whom and who backwards. Nice try, though.

Fiorina was the only statewide candidate I actually liked in California.

I don't really much care for Whitman, and certainly none of the Democrats.

So my ballot was Fiorina, and a bunch of third party candidates (BTW, I voted for Nader in 2008).

I am mostly satisfied with the way the Propositions went, though I would have preferred to see Props 23 and 21 both pass—personally, my priorities are saving endangered parkland instead of spending billions on global warming propaganda and paving desert tortoise habitat with solar panels...but that's just me.

Obstruct everything? That's a pretty broad sentiment. I think it's just another way of saying "they won't vote for what we want them to."

Isn't tension/stalling/long-winded compromise supposed to be what's great about deliberative bodies? Reason is never arrived at on whims, and certainly not on Obama-starpower-whims.

I couldn't bring myself to vote for Fiorina because:

1. Cancer card

2. She used HP and her experience there to somehow portray that she did something good. No she didn't. She came in, moved jobs, butchered the HP way and tried to force a merger that no one wanted -- and wrapped it in a package and called it "business experience"

You know what I call that?

Bullshit.

Thank God she didn't get elected. She can go back to getting cancer treatment.

Actually, that was something I was trying to troll Brian with, but looks like he's not around.

I agree that the statewide candidates in California generally sucked, but Fiorina was among the worst of them for many of the reasons Al mentioned. She did not demonstrate competence at the helm of one of the most prominent companies in the silicon valley. She demonstrated excess, lack of discipline and an inability to build consensus.

I'm sick and tired of politics being run by dropouts or failed executives. I want the the country to be run by rational economists, engineers and scientists.

And I want the country to be run by poets, philosophers, and environmentalists.

Beside, who is to say whose economics is right? There is profound disagreement among the economists of this world. And, really, the country is kind of "run" by an economist...Ben Bernanke. Control the currency/debt, and you control everything.

+1

But you know, as they say -- B's and C's run the country, people who get A's merely work for them. Now how do you think that happened? I'm willing to bet only the dumb and wealthy (though not directly related) are willing to take the leadership helm because they lack the understanding of opportunity cost with respect to sanity, time and effort to govern a country of idiots.

I voted for all Republicans and Libertarians in NY. It's a pity that Chuck Schumer won. "Yeah! Let's get rid of that silly old 2/3 majority rule in house and senate!" Next, let's do away with the Constitution.

I believe in a more balanced government. Great leaders should have advisors with opposing political beliefs, that way compromises can be made and good bills can be passed. If you don't have someone there to judge your plans, how will you know if they're good or not?

Then do you think McConnell should go around saying the best way to fight Obama is to reject everything he throws out?
