Democrats Go Into Hiding

Is it any surprise that Democrats are going deep into the bunker tonight? The results will not be any good for them anyways. And why even stand in front of the cameras and acknowledge the defeat?

According to ABC:

House Democrats and Republicans are each holding various press events today, but Democrats have been careful to control media access on election night, in anticipation of a vote count that analysts have predicted will result in a tumultuous evening for the Democratic Party.

That’s in stark contrast to the celebration kicked off when then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats won control in the 2006 midterms and celebrated their victory in front of a throng of media and supporters.

n 2006, Democrats rode waves of anti-Bush and anti-war sentiment to the polls, picking up 30 seats in the House and six more in the Senate. For the first time in United States history, no Republican captured any House, Senate, or Gubernatorial seat that was previously held by a Democrat.

“Today the American people voted for change, and they voted for Democrats to take our country in a new direction,” Pelosi said after Democrats won big in 2006. “The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C. and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.”

But that was then, and this is now. When the wall-to-wall media coverage drags on into the late hours of the evening and into the early morning, Democrats will be noticeably muted as the election results are realized.

That is a stark contrast to this day four years ago:

Americans are voting today for change. Will Pelosi acknowledge this result? Or will we be seeing her resignation over the coming days?
