To understand the massive national defeat delivered to the Democrat Party in this election, just look at the areas where the Democrats are in total power. Start with New York, Chicago and California. And there it is.

The 2008 mandate, where the Dems controlled Congress and the White House, delivered a big flaming pile of nothing good.
