After a bruising year and a half battle and maybe a billion dollars later, the U.S. Senate is about where they were the last two years but with two additional Democrat seats. Tuesday's final election results give the Democrats 55 seats to the GOP's 43. Independents still hold two seats in the Senate.
While most of the attention was focused on the battle for the White House, political insiders and Wall Street types were carefully watching key Senate races in hopes that cumbersome bills such as Dodd-Frank could be overturned.
For the past two years Democrats held 53 seats in the Senate to the Republicans' 45. Senators Bernie Sanders (Vt.) and Joe Lieberman (Conn.), both Independents, voted with the Democrats most all the time. more >>
Former "Saturday Night Live" star Victoria Jackson has grieved the loss of the presidential election and blamed Christians for "not showing up" to vote for Mitt Romney. It's not the first time Jackson has let her religious and political beliefs be known to all.
"I can't stop crying. America died," Jackson initially tweeted after the election was called in favor of President Barack Obama. "The Democrat Party voted God out and replaced Him with Romans 1. In the Good vs Evil battle…today…Evil won."
But Jackson wasn't finished there. Her most accusatory tweet, however, came just a bit later: "Thanks a lot Christians, for not showing up. You disgust me." more >>
The two daughters of Barack Obama have celebrated their father's reelection as the 44th President of the United States and have already returned to the White House this week.
Malia, 14, and her younger sister Sasha, 11, were poised yet jubilant alongside their parents as the presidential election results arrived Tuesday night. The young girls donned fashionable skirts as they hugged President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
"I'm so proud of you guys," Obama said during his acceptance speech early Wednesday after his reelection, according to The Washington Post. "Sasha and Malia, before our very eyes, you're growing up to become two strong, smart, beautiful young women." more >>
Evangelical Christian voters turned out in record numbers according to a national post-election survey done by the Faith and Freedom Coalition. However, despite a 78 to 21 percent split in favor of Mitt Romney among white evangelicals, the coalition's leader implied that Barack Obama's win was catapulted by votes from youths and minorities.
"Evangelicals turned out in record numbers and voted as heavily for Mitt Romney yesterday as they did for George W. Bush in 2004," said Ralph Reed, chairman of Faith and Freedom Coalition. "That is an astonishing outcome that few would have predicted even a few months ago. But Romney underperformed with younger voters and minorities and that in the end made the difference for Obama."
Reed added that the election was a "tale of two cities" and said, "Evangelicals and faithful Catholics turned out in large numbers and voted overwhelmingly for religious liberty, the sanctity of life and marriage, and limited government. But younger voters and minorities turned out in even larger numbers [than] in 2008 and delivered Obama to victory." more >>
As Christians, it is our duty to pray for our president and for all those in positions of authority. (see 1 Timothy 2:1-4) As Christians, we obviously are deeply concerned about the sanctity of human life, the institution of marriage between a man and a woman, and the moral necessity of paying off our national debt for the sake of future generations.
With those matters and other moral issues in mind, here is a prayer which many of us can pray regularly in sincerity and in truth.
Almighty God, more >>
