The vote is in. After billions of dollars and years of uplifting or demeaning speeches, the country is in the same place it was four days ago. President Obama cobbled together a constituent-driven electoral victory while half or more of all Americans don't trust him or his policies. Americans have voted for more gridlock. The U.S. House, despite low approval, was returned. So was the Senate. The previous “Hope and Change” has become “No Change and Less Hope.”
The new hope is that the president, after four years of pandering to his base, will turn his attention to all Americans and spend more time at the table and less in personal endeavors. God Bless and help America!
