The results are undeniable... the GOP took a beating yesterday. If you want anymore of my Nostradomus like prognostications, take the Bengals to win the Super Bowl.
Outside of my underestimated pounding, a couple of things of note; In Ohio, it appears that while the GOP lost the big elections they did not get totally trounced. Steve Chabot, despite being in a 50 - 50 district won by a bigger margin than Jean Schmidt, who looks like she'll barely win in a largely GOP district. Once again, it proves to me that officials who are consistently conservative will always beat a liberal despite any national referendum against the ruling party.
Somehow, people understood enough of Issues 4 & 5 difference to vote their conscience which I believe was to ban smoking statewide.
People in Hamilton County were also astute enough to combine Heimlich and the issue he help craft, issue 12. Unfortunately, they both lost. Just as a note to Heimlich, those Robocalls are obnoxious and are counter productive.
Overall, while I'm disappointed the democrats took over the House & Senate (can you imagine Air America in Washington). The fact of the matter is, I do believe the GOP is in desparate need of a total cleansing. These guys never knew how to govern. As a result, the electorate took it away from them.
Hopefully it will be a lesson learned for the next two years while they get to eat cake.
