To keep everything even we have the president on the left, the house makes up the right, and all the folks in black robes sit at the top. As each one has their own angle, there is not one corner that holds more power than the next. It keeps one branch from having too much power, or accomplishing too much of their own agenda.
The triangle was lifted on November 6, allowing the voters to break the rack and scatter balls. Game over until 2016 on the executive branch. However, in 2014 we’ll have another shot at the legislative branch. Those we select to represent our state, play a part in electing the president and confirming the judiciary branch. Choose wisely.
Democrats and Republicans are scattered about our ballots. For each hole we fill, we’re that much closer to sinking the eight. As of today, that means 4 more years for President Obama, our third two term president in two decades. For all those complaining, keep in mind who you voted into the senate, as these are the woman and men who make up the Electoral College.
The pocket pool we’ve seen from the house over the last four years was more of an individual sport, than a two player game. There was the huge delay in passing the “First Respondent’s bill” near the end of 2010. The "Veterans’ Jobs bill” was recently blocked, and the talk of the house has remained on tax breaks effecting those in the house, rather than the ones who save lives and fight for our freedom. At least they keep the most important issues in the forefront. These cue balls are necessary though, to put another set of important balls in the white house.
If you ever wonder who’s calling the shots, one must take into consideration the media plays on the political arena. Use of spin may be the best way to place one in a better position for the next shot. Fox and friends, “Arrrgh you kidding?” segment, because President Obama was talking with a man in pirates outfit as opposed to focusing on Israel. “So much for peace in the middle east,” says Steve Doocy. CNN did a full segment on how they are fairer and more balanced than FOX against Obama, or MSNBC on Romney. They just want everyone to know you can get the real news from them, and the others are just cable talk shows as CNN discussed in their segment, “MSNBC’s War on Romney.” The media kept the run to the white house tight, no matter what their spin.
When one misses a shot, the next player takes over. As for now though, the new rack appears to look a whole lot like the old rack, with the small difference that the democrats bought themselves a few more seats in the senate.
