Actually the Senate plays a bigger part than the House does. Just because the House has more members doesn't make it more important.

Wow, I didn't think I'd ever read such a justification for liking the village idiot.

Sure, put a village idiot at the helm, so he can talk to the yahoos of our society, while being a bumbling, stumbling, blabbering, bungling imbecile, whose policies cause the country to bleed to death.

I prefer President Obama. Supremely gifted orator, exceptional class, integrity, character, and most importantly, the most effective President in history. His policies, both foreign and domestic, have been a great success. He resuscitated this country from 8 horrific years of Republican policies and Bush.

A deeper perspective is more relevant here.

Obama wins.
True but not due to anything Obama has done.

Bush's foreign policy resume ranks among the very worst in history. A complete disaster on every level.
And of course Clinton's years were fueled by the mother of all tech bubbles, but you refer to them as impressive growth. You just never stop with the ridiculous spin spin spin.

You'd do your cause more benefit if you engaged in less intellectual dishonesty.

You sound just like Nancy Pelosi in 2009, 2011, and 2013.....
What is this Democrat surge going to be contributed to?

You don't make sense here, what are you talking about? Pelosi is in the House, not the Senate or President.

You don't want it to make sense.
Again, you sound just like Nancy Pelosi in denial that she would lose the speaker, and her prediction about taking the House back in 2012, a presidential year with a bigger turnout. Then her prediction of keeping the senate in Democrat control, in 2014.

What is this Democrat surge going to be contributed to?

Now that Harry Ried is no longer controlling the Senate, Obama will be the one held accountable.
Pelosi was held accountable. She lost her control
Reid was held accountable. He lost his control.
Now it is time to hold Obama accountable, and show the nation that it is in fact Progressive policy that is the cancer of freedom & prosperity.

While totally ignoring the ineptitude of Congress
