A few more thoughts on last night’s election…

Now that I’ve gotten my eeyore post out of the way, I am coming around to more positive thoughts on the election last night.

While it’s true that Republicans won’t make much good progress in the next two years and that is disappointing, it’s also true that last night could have been much worse. In fact it’s what the left was hoping for, as Geraldo Rivera points out:

True. They were hoping they’d win enough races to even impeach Trump. But instead all they won was the House and they didn’t win it by much.

Another good point was made by Ari Fleischer:

I think he’s right. It was difficult enough to get significant legislation passed in the House with the majority we had.

As Jon Gabriel points out…

They did win power so they will bear this as a responsibility. But I also think many Democrats will give them a pass for the most part because…Trump.

So yeah, from a defensive standpoint I admit this was a big victory, as Geraldo pointed out. And perhaps I was a little too eeyore this morning.

Cup back to half full.
