Despite the Democratic Party’s marginal increase in its House numbers, party supporters remain concerned that the new Congress could be rendered unworkable due to the prevailing GOP mindset.

Worried about their 2014 mid term prospects, Republicans are busy distancing themselves from the stench of their Party’s defeat in the 2012 Presidential election.

Not surprisingly elements of the GOP remain captive to a plethora of flawed social and economic ideas as supporters of Paul Ryan, Romney every other day, and the Tea Party recipe so resolutely and recently rejected by the electors.

Regardless of the improved Democratic vote, America’s confidence and sense of itself will continue to be measured by the grudging state of the economy and the real possibility of another obstructionist Congress.

After 4 years of conspiring to employ blocking as an anti Obama strategy, Republican congressional leaders John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, regardless of their public statements to the contrary, still fail to exhibit a genuine desire to work with the White House in the National interest.

Meanwhile, Congress remains compromised by the pork barreling practices of those engaged in vote buying and election funding in providing financial grants as ‘earmarks’ to home states regardless of the need or the impact on the National economy.

For Democrats the mission is clear. Control of both Congressional chambers is paramount for 2014. The importance of this cannot be exaggerated. Having raised the bar, with more to achieve, the President’s legacy already guarantees a sound foundation upon which his successor could constructively build.

Should the Democrats fall short in 2014, the blood, sweat and tears expended by supporters in the previous 6 years will account for little.

The general election of 2012 is over, but the mid term race for 2014 and America’s future has just begun.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    While the Republicans are infighting about who's fault their loss is we ( Especially per my emails encouraging me to get more involved in the party.) are focusing on building on our success and the need to stop republican's moneybaggers steamrolling over our libertys.

    Our money system is not what we have been led to believe. The creation of money has been "privatized," or taken over by private money lenders. Thomas Jefferson called them “bold and bankrupt adventurers just pretending to have money.” webofdebt
