So What Changed? NOTHING.


Before you go to bed tonight wondering what the heck happened to your America, let’s review the message the American people sent tonight — and more importantly, review what has changed.

How things look in 2012:
President?  Barack Obama
U.S. Senate?  Democratic hands.
U.S. House?  Republican hands.
Virginia’s Senator?  A Democrat.
Sequestration?  Happening.
Budget?  A mess.
Spending?  Out of control.
America?  In trouble.

How things are gonna look in 2013:
President?  Barack Obama
U.S. Senate?  Democratic hands.
U.S. House?  Republican hands.
Virginia’s Senator?  A Democrat.
Sequestration?  Happening.
Budget?  A mess.
Spending?  Out of control.
America?  In trouble.

In Richmond, there was a gentleman who threw his hands in the air outside screaming “it’s all over!  America is done!” — or something to that effect — outside of the Allen/Cantor Victory party tonight at the Omni.  Similarly, there was a group of about three hipsters at a local restaurant who clearly had no clue what they were supporting or why they were supporting Obama… but made rather daft comments about “those damn farmers” as the explanation as to why the American map looked so overwhelmingly red in a county-by-county layout.

Hyperbole abounds.

…but nothing was lost tonight folks.  

Everything remained tangibly the same.  Just like the week before when you felt good about America.

So… buck up your spirits.  The hard work officially begins.
