This is my 100th post! wooo hooo
So Election Day is behind us (pretty much except in VA and MT). Am I deliriously happy like the Lady Lorraine? No. Am I completely bummed like, er, okay, maybe finding somebody bummed about the results is going to prove a little difficult but the still answer is: No.
Actually, I'm relieved. Quite honestly, and I say this as a proud liberal Republican (oxymoron, no?), I am VERY OPTIMISTIC. Seriously.
Maybe I'm going to finally show all of you how not smart I really am but common sense just seems to dictate that we got two things going FOR us:
1) A "lame duck" President who MUST find a way to work with the Democrats who outnumber his party. If he doesn't work it out and figure it out, he may as well pack his respective s*** and move out of the White House this weekend. I think it is a tremendous opportunity for him to be a president to our ENTIRE country, not just the GOP-registered citizens.
2) The Democratic leaders who now find themselves out from behind the eight ball can really start putting some of their words into action. Independent energy sources? Bring it on! Raise the minimum wage? About dadgum time! Putting a stop to the gushing wound of America that is RIDICULOUSLY high prescription drug prices? Amen!!
Though there are certain issues that I absolutely wholeheartedly disagree with Democratic stances on, I can say the same about certain Republican stances. Like I said before, I am very optimistic about our nation's future.
