What should be hanging over the front door of Congress:
Abandon hope all ye who enter here
The GOP took the House. Great.
Are they going to do what's necessary?
But thank God that there isn't a rubber stamp Democratic Congress anymore.
But that doesn't mean the Republicans won't screw it up. Tea Party congressmen don't make up enough of the new Republican majority to matter. It will be up to the establishment GOP, specifically the Speaker-elect, to realize the road were on is not paved with the Fed, bailouts or half measures.
He needs to put up that sign. He needs to tell his people that all they might have is one term. One term to do great things and save a country. One term to turn around decades of wrong.
But I doubt he'll do that.
But at least the Dems aren't in full control anymore.
That's optimistic, right?
