As expected, it was a big night for he GOP, as it snatched away control of the U.S. Senate away from Harry “Dingy” Reid, forcing President Obama to have to work with a Republican-controlled Congress in the remaining two years of his presidency.
I highly doubt Obama will behave like Bill Clinton did back in the 90’s, when he faced the challenge of working with a Republican Senate and House of Representatives.
Expect Obama to be defiant, and push back against Congress at every turn.
I think the big question Americans should be asking themselves now is, will the GOP come together and dig the country out of the hole Obama put it into?
But before the GOP can fix the nation’s woes, it first needs to work something out between the warring factions amongst its ranks.
Now-Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, along with moderate Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham, and others, must reach out and embrace those “whacko birds” conservatives in the Senate they have been fighting against since 2010.
The GOP’s biggest challenge of 2015 will be to come together as it gears up for the 2016 presidential election.
Knowing how stubborn the “old guard” in the GOP is, I am not going to hold my breathe.
