This thread is for all who would like to express joy at the election result.
I invite you all who are either:

republican and are glad they gained control of the house,

pragmatic demarcates who knew they'd lose that but are just glad the big tea
partiers lost like O'Donnell,

people like me who are glad that there 28 some year incumbent is finally out (Boucher) and new congressmen can finally come in,

or you might even want to post because you happy a canadite proved that you can still win on a write in vote.

Huzza!

Why are you Americans always this happy about elections? At first you love your president, then you hate him as much as possible. The most rubbish thing is that you think that one party is more loyal and transparent than the other.

How it works is if one person gets his favorite person in office, the person who wanted the other person in hates him. And the other way around.

Not really. The opposing party usually always dislikes the president while the incumbant party likes him. However, as time goes on, even the incumbant party loses support, but doesn't resort to hating him.

The most rubbish thing is that you think that one party is more loyal and transparent than the other.

Uh, I didn't realize the "loyalty" or transparncy of a party was to be valued in the first place. In fact, to many, loyalty to a party is looked down upon.

That is the logical presumption, but it does not work here; rather, the president enters his office while his electors support him, but once they find out that he promised what is beyond his head, they start hating him. The problem is that the American people hardly see beyond the dull promises of the various politicians. Had it been to me, several of them should be sentenced to death.

After he gets elected, even his own supporters turn their backs. George Bush is a good example, and so is Barack Obama.

Do people want to vote for secrecy and lies, perhaps?

Stupid people, or stupid presidents? Or presidents who do nothing to keep promises? Or presidents who cannot keep all their promises?

After he gets elected, even his own supporters turn their backs. George Bush is a good example, and so is Barack Obama.

Maybe its cause they [bush] are war mongering incompetent idiots who care more about their bank accounts than the People, American and otherwise. Or that they [both of them] have been shoved in a negative light, with some facts, usually by those who do not support them, and some lies, almost always by those who do not support them, to make them look even worse than they already are and are known for being.

I would link to video of enemies trying to make bush look bad, but I am unaware of what exactly to look for.

Bush deserves to be shunned and condemned. My point was that people liked him, elected him twice, then regret it.

When Barney Frank was asked who his base was he responded: "My base are those who vote for me even when they know i'm wrong". Says it all.

We didn't do so well in mass.

So bush, and other war mongerers.

Yeah. I only know of two people that voted in favor of him the second time. my aunt (not the cool one) and my dad. They regret nothing to my knowlege, and blame the war and debt on Obama.

I would link to video of enemies trying to make bush look bad, but I am unaware of what exactly to look for.

I was going to say that but didn't want someone (idk who) to get mad about that and start talking about how I'm too biased or whatever.
