Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

Boehner Continues to Spin Nov. 6 Results

Speaker Boehner can always be counted on to make himself look like a simpleton.  Today, his spin on election results:

“I’m proud of the fact that our team, in a very difficult year, was able to maintain our majority.”

A “very difficult year”?  That’s quite a different story than the GOP pundits were telling all summer and fall.  Unemployment near 8%, a huge federal deficit, supposed faux pas in handling foreign affairs, a President with approval ratings of 50%.  The Republicons hailed all this as evidence that voters would soundly reject the Democratic Party.  It didn’t quite turn out that way, of course.  Now, in retrospect, they say it was a “difficult year”!  It wasn’t difficult until the American  People soundly rejected the GOP agenda and tossed a dozen right-wingers out of Congress and returned President Obama to the White House.
