It's a lock my friend.

We will see. I don't think anything is a lock when the election is a year away. Remember in 1991 Bush had an approval of close to 90%.

Why did Reid do this? It was stupid... it will fail in the House and leave the Republican the ability to do anything in 2013... oh well, I always said liberals couldn't see 2 seconds ahead of them... reap what you sow...

That stupid, it doesn't matter.. its only a matter of time... the Democrats won't hold on forever... eventually the Republicans will take over and its a done deal... why people can't see more than 2 seconds ahead, I will never understand..

Hey random, remember November 2010? Guess what, you're going to hate November 2012. The clueless ones are people like you who pay attention to idiot sites like c-d, huff, kos, du, etc. You really have no idea what's coming. Mark my words.

It is an absolute lock. The numbers are seriously against the Dems.

Which Senators are Up for Re-election in 2012

Way more Dem Senate seats up than Republican.

No serious person believes the Republicans will lose the house. The Dems Re toast. What a dumb move by Reid.

The best part of this insane move, Reid blocked Republican attempts to get a vote on Obama's jobs bill!!! The Republicans will hammer the Dems and Obama with this remarkably stupid move. The Dems are the gift that keeps giving!

I think most sane people like most of us here. Are so disenchanted with all politicians from both sides of the aise. Think we are pretty sick of the antics on both sides also. From the Man in the W.H. To the Congress and on down, people are tired of politicians in general.

The games played and from both sides, the name calling, lack of accountability, just is too much for some too handle.

I ask myself what planets do these politicians come from!

We will see. 2012 is a long way away. In the mean time I will enjoy watching the s*** show that is the Republican primaries. It's like your entire party has ADD.

I also never thought I would see the day when a Republican claimed that Massachusetts was a "pretty solid red state."
