I wasn’t going to blog about the midterm elections. I know they are important and I voted. But I have no patience for pundits and their speculation of what the next two years will look like for the U.S. But I was shocked this morning when I heard what Republican Senator Mitch McConnell (Ky.) said yesterday:
“Our friends on the other side can change now and work with us to address the issues that are important to the American people that we all understood, or further change obviously can happen in 2012,” he said.

How does this kind of threat help the U.S.? How does it help bolster the economy? create jobs? fund healthcare? strengthen our schools? find solutions to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars? support our veterans?
Not only did the majority of American voters show Congress that they were unhappy with the Democrats, but their votes also showed that they are fed up with the bipartisanship of Congress. Come on Congress, get to work! Work together!
