Election Results and Good News From Iraq Part #12

BREAKING NEWS 11:52 am-- Associated Press is reporting that Rumsfeld is resigning!!!!! Fox News has confirmed that Rumsfeld is stepping down.

Long story (Or night) short, Democrats won the house and due to recounts we do not know about the senate yet. All in all, the American people spoke, yet I still get the feeling from my earlier posts, that our soldiers lost the most.

If you are not sure what I am talking about the read
"The Soldiers Speak up--LOUDLY", "The Soldiers Keep Speaking", "Another Soldier Speaks", "American Soldier Speaks to Anti-War Protesters." and "Confederate Yankee Interviews Soldiers in Iraq". These were comments by our soldiers on the ground in Iraq, that were completely ignored last night.

Michelle Malkin made a few good points about the GOP's losing and conservatism still prevailed.

The GOP lost. Conservatism prevailed. "San Francisco values" may control the gavels in Congress, but they do not control America. Property rights initiatives limiting eminent domain won big. MCRI, the anti-racial preference measure, passed resoundingly. Congressman Tom Tancredo, the GOP's leading warrior against illegal immigration--opposed by both the open-borders Left and the open-borders White House--won a fifth term handily. Gay marriage bans won approval in 3 states. And as of this writing, the oil tax initiative, Prop. 87--backed by deep-pocketed Hollywood libs, is trailing badly in California.
Now I guess it is time to see what new ideas the Democrats actually have and if the new house will make any difference.

The President speaks today at 1 pm eastern.

Now, just because election night is over, does not mean my Good News From Iraq series will end, because our soldiers deserve to have people see the good they do every single day.
