My candidacy for the United States House of Representatives was unsuccessful on Election Day. I wish to thank the more than 50,000 voters in the Third Congressional District who supported my candidacy with their vote.
The good news is that Republicans across the nation added to their majority in the United States House of Representatives and Republican Senate candidates were able to win a majority in the United States Senate for the first time since 2006. The message from the voters across our nation was that they wanted to go in a different direction away from the Obama disaster.
The day after the mid-term elections, Mr. Obama addressed the nation concerning the results of the election. Even though he stated during the campaign that “his policies were on the ballot, every single one of them,” he refused to admit that the vote of the people was a repudiation of his policies and his agenda. He seemed to be intransigent to the fact that his Democrat Party took a shellacking at the polls. He was still speaking about his agenda. His tone was defiant and gave the impression that he blamed the results on “two-thirds of the electorate (who) didn’t show up.”
Mr. Obama stated a few months ago, “I don't really care to be President without the Senate.” He has now lost the Senate. He should keep to his word now and simply resign from his office and go play golf every day.
