Election 2012: The House of Representatives

Interestingly, the House of Representatives remains strongly GOP. Of course, this doesn’t mean anything because the GOP is becoming harder and harder to distinguish from the Democrats. My bet is that House Republicans will continue what they’ve been doing for the last two years: they’ll continue to puss out on the major issues and defer to and side with the Democrats on the important things. They’ll basically be Democrats Lite. The claims of a one-party system from disaffected libertarians and paleo-cons will increase in both frequency and shrillness. But really, could they have expected a different outcome? After all, the Democrats and Republicans were once the same party. Perhaps they will reunite again.
