Image via Daily Mail / Via dailymail.co.uk Liberals — let me remind you that we lost the midterm election. So, the fact that you are gloating that the keystone pipeline did not pass in the Senate — by one vote shy is insufferable. I mean really. What are you celebrating? Again — we lost the midterm election, and "not with a whisper but with a bang."Remember most of you were too busy, too lazy, or too disengaged to vote this past election cycle. Only 36 percent of eligible voters participated — the worst since 1942. And congressional politicians up for re-election were too busy running from President Obama's record — you know the one: recovering economy, decrease in unemployment, Affordable Healthcare Act, etc…etc.The end result of the Democratic "shellacking" is in January 2015 Republicans will hold the majority in the Senate and House. Top on their list will be the keystone pipeline — all Republicans support the measure, along with a handful of conservative Democrats. A definite path to victory — though it's imminent the President will veto the bill. Senator Landrieu persistence that the Senate vote on the keystone pipeline was a waste of time for the Democratic agenda. It did liberals no favor.The evidence is clear; this was a political maneuver in order save Louisiana Senator Mary L. Landrieu seat in the Senate. Not only does the President disapprove of the keystone pipeline but so do most Democratic politicians. Not to mention, Democratic supporters and environmental activists overwhelming disapprove of the pipeline. The EPA has major concerns about the pipeline as well. So what was the point? Considering the polls are not in her favor to retain her seat in the Senate. Landrieu is set to lose the runoff election against GOP Representative Bill Cassidy – likely by 16 points or more.Oil is in the DNA of southern states, but overtime these middle class jobs have been subsiding -- cementing Landrieu political battle and what some would call bravado. Due to this landscape of the tight job market in the state -- it's no surprise her political throne is eroding -- and why she is fighting like tooth and nail to pass the keystone pipeline. But strangely, the pipeline is not scheduled to connect through Louisiana much less create jobs for the state. This means, Landrieu posture on the Senate floor yesterday was an empty promise, spearheaded by desperation, not to mention a direct insult to democratic values and principles. Yesterday's vote should have never been, at least not by the lead of a Democrat with a conflict of interest.A better decision would have been to delay the vote and outcome for 2015. Let it be Republicans cross to bear in getting the 60 votes needed, instead of exhausting liberal's energy. Democrats focus should be on filling vacant judicial seats and beginning the process to appoint Loretta Lynch for US Attorney General.Mary L. Landrieu has every right to fight. But let's not dismiss the facts at hand — liberal control in the Senate is coming to an end. Issuing a political vote for the keystone pipeline was irresponsible — an irresponsible tactic, and the end result was a smack in the face.So, still think the keystone pipeline failure attempt to reach 60 votes was a victory for liberals, more so than a waste of time? If the answer is yes, then Democrats you absolutely deserved your midterm election "shellacking."
