The Senate battle over the confirmation of judicial nominees reflected the epitome of Republican obstructionism, with nominees who won significant if not unanimous support from the Judiciary Committee failing to receive up-or-down votes on their confirmation. Of the 38 pending judicial nominees the Senate was only able to confirm 19 of them before adjourning for the year, exacerbating the country’s judicial vacancy crisis that is growing so badly that even GOP-appointed judges have called on Senate Republicans to end the blockade.

I tend to avoid writing "what does it mean" posts in the days following any sort of election, mainly because I frankly have no idea what election results "mean" in terms of some larger narrative.

Last week, LifeSiteNews reported that former Sen. Rick Santorum had been speaking to a room full of prominent US Catholic leaders when he was challenged to run for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2012. Santorum responded that, six months ago his anwer would have been "no way," but given that President Obama is destroying our nation, he is indeed "thinking about it" making his own run for the GOP nomination.
