Jerry, you have succinctly encapsulated my thoughts and concerns. The pundits are saying that this election was about liberal emotion trumping conservative facts. Rather, to my thinking, this election was a referendum on accountability. Or to be more pointed, THERE IS NONE! The Republican party has shifted from the Party of "No" to the Party of Blame, and soon to be the Party of OMG.
As my dad used to say, "Sometimes, you just have to vote with your feet." God rest his soul.
