Which explains why the republicans knew they had to gerrymander districts or else lose complete control:
In the memo — titled “How a Strategy of Targeting State Legislative Races in 2010 Led to a Republican U.S. House Majority in 2013” — RSLC boasts that it “raised more than $30 million in 2009-2010, and invested $18 million after Labor Day 2010 alone” to ensure statehouse victories in states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.Which explains why the person that "We the People" actually elected is at an all time high approval rating, while Congressional approval ratings(and the guy who ran against Obama) are lower than: A cockroach, traffic jams and Nickelback!
“The rationale was straightforward,” reads the memo. “Controlling the redistricting process in these states would have the greatest impact on determining how both state legislative and congressional district boundaries would be drawn. Drawing new district lines in states with the most redistricting activity presented the opportunity to solidify conservative policymaking at the state level and maintain a Republican stronghold in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next decade.”
Thank Goodness it is President Obama being inaugerated monday!
