President Obama made a quote several weeks ago that stated that " I am not on the ballot, but make no mistake, all of my policies are......"
The pollsters were predicting a close one and it wasn't even close. The vast majority of the voters don't like the direction of the country is going and the President is so ideologically biased he can't change his course. The Democrats I have noticed every election cycle, find some issue to inflame the black community to get them to the polls.
Now the President has stated that despite GOP winning the senate in grand fashion and increasing the house majorities and picking up some governors races. he is still bound by his beliefs.
I was and am suffering from "election burnout." The cycle starts to start up earlier and earlier, the politicians will start running for election right after they are sworn in, perhaps sooner. The 2016 Presidential election will prove interesting, the Democrats will probably go with Hillery, I can see the campaign slogan now "We need to elect a women to fix the mess the men made." and they will run her.
The democrat party machine normally have their candidate already lined up to avoid a bruising primary that might dig up a bunch of dirt they normally have a complicit media squelch for them. The only time I saw differently was in 08 when Obama came out of nowhere and bumped Hillery off. The only reason it was tumultuous was because you have 2 groups inside the party fighting, you had the groups that wanted the first black president vs the group that wanted the first women president. Remember to a democrat, it is group identity that matters. the problem is that Hillery has been a fixture since the early 90's and people have Clinton burnout.she has several scandals hung on her and her proclivity for distortion and deception and outright lying is known..so I am expecting a fresh face to make a go. Just my crystal ball...but it can get hazy.
The GOP on the other hand will have a bunch of candidates to field from and it will be as nasty as the 2012 election cycle was. The GOP don't work the identity politics like the democrats do so by nature it is more rambunctious.
I am glad that the cycle is over...Now I can watch tv..when I have time....and not see this:
