QUOTES

“It feels bad. [Now,] I’m not recommending for every future president that they take a shellacking like I did last night. You know, I’m sure there are easier ways to learn these lessons… What yesterday also told us is that no one party will be able to dictate where we go from here, that we must find common ground in order to set — in order to make progress on some uncommonly difficult challenges.  And I told John Boehner and Mitch McConnell last night I am very eager to sit down with members of both parties and figure out how we can move forward together. – President Barack Obama when asked about the GOP landslide at his Wednesday press conference.

“We’re humbled by the trust that the American people have placed in us.  As I said last night, our job is to listen to the American people and follow the will of the American people.  It’s pretty clear the American people want us to do something about cutting spending here in Washington and helping to create an environment where we get jobs back in our country.  We’ve got a big job ahead of us.  That’s why you will see us roll up our sleeves and go to work today.” – House Speaker-to-be John Boehner (R-OH) on Wednesday morning.

“The only way to do all these things it is to put someone in the White House who won’t veto any of these things.” – Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Thursday in a speech to the conservative Heritage Foundation in which he called for  Senate votes to repeal or erode Obama’s signature health care law, to cut spending and to shrink government.

“He’s got Harvard problems, and he’s got community college friends giving him advice.” – FoxSports.com columnist Jason Whitlock explaining why LeBron James may be making some questionable decisions.

NEWS

 THREE FACES OF EVIL

John Boehner, Mitch McConnell,  Haley Barbour

(L-R) Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Representative John Boehner (R-OH), Governor Haley Barbour (R-MS) meet the press in Washington, DC on Wednesday.

Election doesn’t end major discord for GOP, Obama “They may have missed the message somewhat,” McConnell told reporters. Democrats “can change now and work with us to address the issues that are important to the American people,” he said, or they can refuse and see that another round of Republican wins “can happen in 2012,” when Obama will seek re-election.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

At least Mitch McConnell is being upfront and honest in saying how he feels about President Obama and his agenda/policies.

Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s shrewdest move this year may have been when she agreed to allow crazier than a loon on LSD Michelle Bachmann form an official Tea Party Caucus. Incoming Speaker John Boehner may have his hands full trying to keep the extreme right of his party in line in the new Congress.

Will Meg Whitman prove that she really wants to help California recover economically by offering to be a liaison to the business community for Governor-Elect Jerry “Back To The Future” Brown or just disappear with her billion-dollar (minus the $150 million she blew losing to Brown) fortune, never to be heard from again?

Bill Clinton can (and will) say, smugly I might add, “Hey, I did what I could but nobody in the White House wanted to take my advice.”

Tuesday’s biggest winner didn’t appear on a ballot – Michael Steele.

Democrats, independents and young voters who turned out in record numbers for Obama in 2008 MUST be re-engaged and that effort must start NOW!

Democrats need to learn message discipline and party unit and do it ASAPLY (yes I made that up).

Charlie Crist and Kendrick Meek blew it in Florida. Rush Limbaugh has a better chance of being inducted into the NAACP Image Awards Hall of Fame than Meek did of being elected as Florida’s junior senator. He should have made the pragmatic, political and exited the race 2-3 months ago and thrown his support behind Crist.

George W. Bush’s saying in his new book that he considered dropping Dick “Darth” Cheney from the 2004 ticket made me wonder how different his presidency, the nation and the world might be today if he’d selected someone else as his running mate in 2000.

Glad to see Greg Anthony, one of college basketball’s best analysts (CBS), has joined NBA TV this season. Now both college and NBA fans can benefit from his knowledge and keen insight.

Kevin Garnett is a horrible excuse for a human being and Isiah Thomas is the most delusional athlete I’ve ever heard of.

Get well soon Aretha.

Don’t forget to “Fall Back” tomorrow night (Saturday).
