It's been a great privilege to serve the people of Pennsylvania. And it's been a great privilege to be in the United States Senate, and I'll be working very very hard for the people of the commonwealth in the coming months. Thank you all.
This movement, this Tea Party movement, is a message to Washington that we're unhappy and that we want things done differently...the Tea Party movement is huge. The mandate of our victory tonight is huge. What you have done and what we are doing can transform America. I think Amer's greatness hinges on us doing something to save the country. The Tea Party movement is about saving the country from a mountain of debt that is devouring our country [and I think?] will lead to chaos.
We now have a president though who apologizes for America's greatness. We now have a president who went to Copenhagen and appeared with Rob Mugabe, Hugo Chavez, and others--Evo Morales--to apologize for the ind revolution.
