If you ask the Left, they'll give you every excuse in the book for why they're going to get their brains beaten out today. The economy is bad, Obama cooperates too much with the Republicans, the American people are irrational, it's Bush's fault -- it goes on and on.
What you will very seldom hear are liberals admitting that they richly deserve to be decimated today because of their poor performance, terrible policies, and astonishing arrogance. Most conservatives are willing to admit that the American public rejected the GOP in 2006 and 2008 because the Republican Party did a lousy job. If and when liberals are willing to admit that they deserve the beating that they're going to get, then you'll know that they're starting to act a little more like adults and a little less like, well....liberals.
In order to help our liberal pals get a grip on reality, here are 7 quotations that help explain why the Democrats are going to get annihilated at the ballot box today.
1) "As she prepares to step down as President Obama's chief economist, Christina Romer said Friday that she wishes she could redo one of her first official acts for the president: last January's forecast that a big shot of federal spending would save millions of jobs and keep the unemployment rate under 8 percent." -- The Washington Post
Right out of the gate, the Democrats passed the largest stimulus bill in the history of our country. Republicans said the massive bill would run up the debt and wouldn't help the economy. On the other hand, Democrats promised that the stimulus plan would spur job creation and keep the unemployment rate below 8%; therefore, it would be worth it to dramatically run up our debt. Well, guess what? We got the debt, but not the jobs.
2) "But I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking." -- Barack Obama
