Prior to this election, I'd have agreed with you wholeheartedly. While my hope is "we" re-elected President Obama because we just hate turning out presidents (remember Bush 41 would have won had Ross Perot stayed out of the race) my concern is America really has reached a tipping point. If that's true, then those addicted to entitlements along with those who believe government giving is a good thing will unite against Republicans. We may lose the House again in 2014.
I'm not fear based, but I am well grounded in reality. Do we fall on our swords and hope for the best? Tough call indeed.
