And the way things are going, it's going to end up
in a mess pretty much like it did after Bush's 8 years.
See Dems and Repubs really have a lot in common; they spend money they don't have.
And now that they both have the same foreign policy - the sky or should I say cliff, is the limit...

Don't forget white women and just women in general. The only demographic the GOP is still winning is white men over the age of 50. Everyone else has rejected them.

I had planned on ranking this one somewhere between 4 and 6 - disappointing, but not as much so as 1964, or the 1958 midterms; about on a par with the 1970 midterms.

But I have no intention of participating on a stunt run by a smug, self-important, and very immature individual just seeking one more opprtunity to crow lika a bantam rooster.

The conservative movement, as oppposed to the Republican Party, is deeply divided; has been since a much-younger lIbertarian movrment broke away in the early Seventies, Rick Santorum's rants at the height of his surge in the polls awakened old memories.

That split has yet to be repaired; but be repaired it will.

Good point. Obama essentially swept the floor with every single demographic group except white men. He is a true man of the people.

Neither. Some elections go your way, some don't. That's a cause for a lot of things, but pain isn't usually one of them. I used the word bewilderment but, to be fair, I'm sure a lot of Obama supporters were/are equally bewildered by the support Romney got.

Maybe as painful as it was for you Libs when G.W. Bush won his second term. Huh?

LoL, whatever makes your future seems less bleak I guess. Going by the reaction of your friends on the right, it might as well be the end of the world. I find that pleasantly amusing.
