The Gang's All Here
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, November 5, 2014, a date that will live in my mind for a very long time. At last, control of the Senate has been ripped away from the Dems and the feeling is sublime. All of our beloved bugs have gathered at my home this morning to celebrate. Please join Antoine, Buzzy, Chiquita, Harlotte, Manny and Tevya for a breakfast feast that pulls out all the stops. We all hope to see you soon.
Say Good-bye to Harry
Thank you all for joining us this morning. The news that the Republicans now control the Senate landed on very grateful wings and tentacles. We have all suffered through eight years of raging gridlock in Congress and it is time to get things moving. Clearly, a majority of the American people have had enough of President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and every other obstructionist in Congress who bought our nation to a halt. This victory is a repudiation of the heinous policies of President Obama and his cast of socialists in the White House and Congress. Americans are angry and disgusted and they brought their feelings to the polls. Even the phony voting machines and illegal voters couldn't stop the tidal wave. This administration has taught Americans one thing for certain. The American people know they can't trust Washington.
Let's Clean House
With the Republican victory comes a huge challenge that must be met head on. There is a lot of garbage to be cleaned up, so those we elected had better get their brooms ready to sweep away the cobwebs from a Congress that has been asleep for eight long years. First of all, we expect Congress to pass a budget once and for all. Then we expect Congress to take on ObamaCare by modifying it or scrapping it altogether. Despite protestations to the contrary the upheaval of our healthcare system is a disaster and Congress must fix the problem. Next we would like to see our borders secured and our immigration policies refined and reaffirmed. We still have those scandals to deal with and it is time to get the job done and hold people responsible. We can top off the list of "musts" with reducing the ungodly amount of regulations imposed by the Obama administration that have stifled job creation and held the American people hostage for eight years. Let's get the pipeline approved and put Americans back to work.
It's Now or Never
The Republicans are facing a huge challenge that they must meet quickly. Americans have lost patience with politicians. Americans have lost faith in the government. Americans are disgusted and disheartened. Republicans and any sane Democrats in Congress must put America back where it beliongs. We once were a proud nation that was a beacon of freedom for the world. President Obama has managed to lower our standing in the eyes of the world by telling nearly everyone who would listen that we are not exceptional. President Obama is wrong. We are exceptional and it is time to reaffirm that. This election has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the American people are unhappy with the direction this country has gone under the dubious leadership of Barack Obama and his friends in Congress. Republicans and those interested in bi-partisanship have two years to make things happen. GET IT DONE!

The election cycle has become increasingly dangerous this year. Violence is now the new norm. It is a form of protest that should not be tolerated.
The traditional moment of silence on September 11, was moved up by a few minutes. Why that happened speaks volumes about President Obama.
This weekend was a nightmare in our country. We had to endure acts of terror in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota. Our so-called leaders were afraid to call a spade a spade.
