    GOP because of Stupek, a higher %age environmentalists because of offshore leases, a higher %age of anti-war activists because of Afghanistan, a higher %age of free-speech/1st amendment activists because of wiretapping/Gitmo. Truth be told, a high %age of all democrats had axes to grind with this Administration on a long list of grievances. But reality suggests most voters had issues with Geitner and Bernanke. And if this president reacts to these results by shifting even further to the right on social issues important to core constituents of the party, he will get spanked in two years as well.

      namely 23 million voters, didn't show up.

      They were the ones who gave governorships, state legislatures, redistricting power and the House of Representatives to the GOP.

      By giving GOP governors the power to redraw progressive-leaning districts out of existence, they really taught the administration a lesson for decades to come.
