I am very happy with most of the election results from yesterday. There were some disappointments, several incumbents I would have liked to be rid of ...but overall, I am pleased with the loud and clear message we, the people, sent to Washington in this election. Whether the newly elected crowd becomes part of the solution or part of the problem, remains to be seen. All politicians at every level of government should take note of the mandate the people have voiced at the polls yesterday. I believe Washington DC was put on notice that no politician is exempt. This was not a partisan victory, this was a victory for patriotism. I just hope we can maintain and build momentum for 2012.
The next two months will be a measure of whether the incumbents are listening. The four to six months following will be a measure of whether the newly elected will remain true to the principles that got them elected. Only time will tell.
