Math: More Accountants Headed to Congress

Americans are gradually concluding that Tea Party hatred of Barack Obama played a bigger role than concerns over deficits or dislike of big government. Hatred, very likely driven by racism, is what brought the Tea Partiers together, and they haven't betrayed that hatred. It's still raging.

And parroting Chris Matthews isn't helping your cause.

The Left long ago found it could get away with synonymizing disapproval with hate. Disapproval, even intense disapproval, of Obama's policies and actions only looks like personal hate to those who worship him, of which there are too many still smitten by the charm and charisma of the man, still unwilling to take him down from the pedestal and take a properly critical eye to his presidency thus far.

Get off it. You can dislike someone's politics, even hate them (though that is far over the top for the Tea Party) without hating the man.

Although last week's election seemed like the end of common sense when it comes to fiscal policy, there is a silver lining. More certified public accountants are headed to Congress and the ones who were already there, are staying.

All eight CPAs currently in the House won re-election, according to the Journal of Accountancy, including John Campbell, R-Calif., Mike Conaway, R-Texas, Bill Flores, R-Texas, Lynn Jenkins, R-Kan., Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., Collin Peterson, D-Minn., James Renacci, R-Ohio, and Brad Sherman, D-Calif. Several of them won re-election after fierce contests in recently redrawn congressional districts.
