    It was encouraging to read these:



    1.Republicans retained control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

    2. Voters in Alabama, Montana, and Wyoming all passed measures limiting Obamacare.

    3. Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, one of the conservative movement’s brightest rising stars, overcame establishment GOP opposition to clinch a U.S. Senate victory in Texas.

    4. Corruptocrat Beltway barnacle Rep. Pete Stark was finally kicked out of office in California.

    5. Despite entrenched teachers’ union opposition, a charter school initiative in Washington state triumphed.

    6. Despite entrenched Big Labor support, a radical collective bargaining power grab in Michigan failed.

    7. Oklahoma voters said no to government race-based preferences in college admissions, public contracting, and government hiring.

    8. Montana voters said no to boundless benefits for illegal aliens.

    9. Washington state approved taxpayer-empowering limitations on its state legislature’s ability to raise taxes.

    10. For the first time since Reconstruction, the GOP won control of the Arkansas state house.

    11. Voters rejected tax hike ballot measures in Arizona, South Dakota, and Missouri.

    12. Louisiana voted to protect gun rights.

    13. Kentucky voted to protect hunting and fishing rights.

    14. Parental notification for minors’ abortion prevailed in Montana.

    15. North Carolina Republicans claimed the governor’s office, congressional gains, and control of the state’s general assembly.

    16. :eusa_clap:

    17. Conservatives won big victories in the Kansas state legislature.

    18. Republicans won historic supermajorities in Tennessee.

    19.Across the country, Republicans reached a post-2000 record number of gubernatorial victories.

    20. Conservatives who were devastated by the national election results demonstrated how to lose with dignity and grace. There will be finger-pointing and recriminations and soul-searching, but committed activists can’t and won’t lose heart. We’ll regroup, recover, and keep fighting for our country.

    ***

    Our friend and commenter SteveEgg adds: “And you missed Rs retaking the WI Senate.”

    21. Wisconsin: GOP wins back control of state government.

    Doesn't count cause Obama got elected even with such criticism and vetting by the media of his first four years.

    That was a joke, right? No human can actually be that un-self-aware, can they?
