    Significant? Of Course it is. The debatable part is what does the significance means.

    I don't think it is anti-Obama as much as it is anti-incumbent although neither can be proven to be the sole cause and can only be assumed.

    Either way it is significant and will be interesting how it all plays out in the long run.

    I believe it's about punishing the Democrats for Anthony Weiner. In addition, there is a lot of frustration towards Obama, and that is also a factor. Face it - Obama promised to lead, and he didn't.

    That seems to be what Obama supporters want to believe. Wonder what is it about liberalism that creates such loyalty in the face of actual results that destroy credibility?

    Liberals need to face the fact that the Obama resume showed zero leadership or executive skills thus we are getting exactly what that resume showed. He is a community agitator and that is all he knows how to do. All that campaign rhetoric is now being compared to the results generated and the disconnect is huge thus elections like NY 9

    Yeah, I already brought up exactly this point. They're not going to buy it.

    He certainly ****ed up. But so did Congress on the whole and not just the Democrats. We'll see if this is an "anti-Obama" thing or an anti-incumbent thing. Regardless, there's a lot of frustration and someone is going to get hit. I just hope we get all of them.

    I don't know if it's that or an ability to use logic and understand data. But believe as you like, no skin off my teeth.

    How am I destroying credibility by saying we can't prove either of our interpretations as absolutely true? I think you are the one losing credibility when you say absolutely it was because of Obama.

    Your foaming at the mouth hatred for Obama blinds you from seeing any other interpretations. You are now blaming Obama for practically everything. I do hope you seek help for your ODS.

    Conservative need to face the fact that President Obama will likely win re-election. They also need to realize the fact that in either Romney or Perry they have two very flawed candidates for President. Plan on Obama leaving office Jan 20, 2017.

    Save your breath, I barked up that tree already. They don't see it. They won't see it. You'll find more success in using Taco Bell to treat indigestion/diarrhea than trying to explain data analysis.
