Congrats to the American voter (except for MD, CA, NV) who rejected Obama's socialist agenda. The voters in MD, CA, and NV are still focused on a one-party power grab with the adverse results of Democrats in charge without any limits. Harry Reed and Barbara Boxer deserved to be tossed out of the Senate. Maryland is a great state, but the voters are blindly voting for liberal Democrats who are raising taxes and destroying our rights.
Neither rookies nor seasoned veterans were spared in Tuesday's House Democratic bloodbath, which saw Republicans defeat three major committee chairmen and at least seven lawmakers who claimed 20 years' seniority or more in Congress. This election should demonstrate to the public that term limits are now necessary due to the drawing of Congressional districts. Elected officials serve the people, not the other way around.
While the losses of 16 freshmen "Obama babies" — those elected during the president's 2008 sweep — were expected, the number of long-serving Democrats who lost re-election this week is staggering, and suggests a widespread dissatisfaction with Washington.
All told, with about a dozen races still uncalled, Democrats have already shed 376 years of congressional experience, and that could go as high as 430 years if five other Democrats lose races in which returns show they are trailing.
Losing outright were 18-term incumbent Minnesota Rep. James L. Oberstar, chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee; 14-term South Carolina Rep. John M. Spratt, chairman of the Budget Committee; and 17-term Missouri Rep. Ike Skelton, chairman of the Armed Services Committee. The victorious Republicans in these races said voters were tired of the Democratic agenda and the length of time these individuals have served. The longer one serves in Congress, the more they are not in touch with the voters.
Appropriations Committee Chairman David R. Obey, a 21-term incumbent from Wisconsin, retired this year rather than seek re-election in his Wisconsin district, while Rep. Alan B. Mollohan, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, lost in a primary. Republicans won in Mr. Obey's district and appeared likely to capture Mr. Mollohan's old seat in a very tight race.
And 10-term Rep. Chet Edwards, a chairman of one of the Appropriations subcommittees, lost his re-election bid in Texas.
Republicans now have the chance to move the country forward in an adult way of "hope and change". We are tired of Obama and the liberal left's socialist agenda.
Congrats to the voters who understand that our country does not want the Obama agenda and policies.

Democrats in Maryland fund CASA of Maryland to register illegal immigrants to vote and support them. They are just like ACORN. These liberal get-out-the-vote organizations are a threat to our democracy and our free-market system. The US Department of Justice must form a special unit to go after these organizations. Why do Democrats and black or Hispanic elected officials vote against a picture ID requirement to vote? Why do they not want proper documents verifying the person is who they say they are? Why do they want liberal voting laws and procedures?
