Post-Mid Term Election Results Monroe County

Now the Republicans must govern

Unfair and Unbalanced

Everyone is wondering, “What in the world happened last Tuesday in the election?” Democrats were disappointed and Republicans were surprised.  To find the answer to this question, let’s look at the election results in our own Monroe County.

2014 Mid-Term Election

Nathan Deal       Jason Carter

67.81%               30.24%  

David Perdue     Michelle Nunn

68.43%               30.00%     

Now look at this:

2012 Presidential Election

Mitt Romney        Barack Obama

68%                     30.7%

Nothing happened! That’s what! It’s as clear as black and white.

Wise up Georgia Democrats! The statewide results are similar percentages as Monroe.  This reminds me that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The Democrats had high-quality candidates but ran away from the message that defines Democrats.

My biggest disappointment election night was Michelle Nunn losing to David Perdue. I have always said that women are a woman’s worst enemy.  Women comprise 52 percent or more of the registered voters in Georgia; yet, Michelle got very little support from white women.  We had a chance to elect a smart, educated, down-to-earth woman who has spent her life consensus building. Someone more like us, the average person.  Michelle was someone who would have voted for our middle-class interests.  Instead, we elected a man who lives in a gated community within another gated community on Sea Island. This man has no idea what it’s like to be us.  Do you think this man, who is proud of outsourcing our jobs and paying women less than men, gives a rip about passing laws to help people like us?

I truly hope that the Republicans are now satisfied and can set about governing.  It’s a relief to me that the onus is now on the Republicans to fix all the problems they were so quick to tell us about in their campaign commercials.

They say some good comes from something bad.  It’s good that Fox News may actually have to report the news now, even if unfavorable to Republicans. It’s good that the Republicans and Fox News don’t have Harry Reid to kick around any more.  It’s good I can sleep without having nightmares brought on by those scary black and white ads accompanied by menacing music warning me of terrorists, Isis, and Ebola.

But the best good thing is that Mr. Davis and Mr. Daniel finally found out what name Michelle Nunn will use after the election.
