The Kumbaya Temptation
Columnist Pat Buchanan
Pat Buchanan was right on the money on what he said about Tuesday's election. Tuesday's election was a repudiation of President Obama and his policies. This election doesn't give the mandate for the GOP to "work together" with the Democrats to continue the same old policies that the American people rejected when they voted for Republicans at the polls on Tuesday. The American people didn't vote to give President Obama the authority to issue an executive order to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. The American people didn't vote to continue the same strategy in Iraq to supposedly fight ISIS. I believe the majority of American people prefer we leave Iraq unless we unleash all the firepower and manpower necessary to win this war and the American people don't want a long, protracted war in Iraq. It was the war in Iraq in 2006 that resulted in both houses of Congress regaining Democratic control in 2007 and it was the current war in fighting the Islamic State which resulted in the Democrats losing the Senate, which is my opinion. If the GOP doesn't listen, then they'll lose control of Congress again, maybe in 2016 if they're not careful.
