    It is a natural love. Numbers do not lie unless one manipulates them to do so. In my hobby trends are most important. Of course this far out it is anyone's guess what will really happen. Once names gets placed one can be more certain. But needing a net gain of 6 seats, having a 50-50 shot of obtaining that objective this far out is encouraging. But in 2012 it was right around this time of the year that another 6 or 7 seat prospective gain for the GOP started falling by the wayside and they ended up losing two seats. Names and candidates are what count, how many Aiken's and Mourdock's will emerge this year that turn victory into defeat? Stay tuned as they say.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Until this whole scandal with Christie I really liked the guy. Now I don't know about him. I think Jeb Bush is the Republicans best shot in 2016 because he is smart, well spoken, not crazy, and he might have a shot at making it through the primaries. Take it from someone born and raised in Arkansas, Huckabee would be an absolute disaster for the GOP in 2016 if he were there nominee. Aside from his extreme social conservativeness which would hurt him with a lot of the electorate, he has his own Willie Horton with Wayne DuMond. Wayne DuMond - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The problem the GOP has these days is the base has a few too many nutters in it, so they don't get quality candidates to even try for the nomination (instead its largely a clown show). Until they figure that out and quite moving so far to the right, they are going to have a hard time winning a national election again.

    That is correct.

    I thought his claim has been that he didn't order the closures. Am I mistaken?
    I can't imagine him doing that.
    His people certainly didn't serve him very well.
    It'll take a lot to get me to back him again.
    Would have been my first general GOP vote since 1980.

    What equipment scandal...Information overload here...I can't keep up!
    It could be pretty messy.

    I consider Jeb Bush to still be alive since he hasn't said no.
    He has kept himself active.
    He must be careful with hot-button issues with the TEAs.

    Mr. Rubio is booed and poorly treated by the TEA-party after his immigration bill and should just focus on being a consensus Senator.

    Throughout this Christie thing, DEMs have been faking an on-side kickoff as far as giving up on the House.
    Granted, the GOP folks have been doubling the spending of DEMs with House hit ads on ACA.
    Our GOP colleagues plan to continue this during Sochi.

    Hehe... I think Christie's only hope is declare to be a democrat and run against hillery in the primaries. We'll see how much the "left" really loves him then.

    I too liked Christie, perhaps I was done in by the media into thinking of him as a golden boy. I must admit he was media's golden boy up and until bridgegate. but with 2 years to go before the first Republican primary, Christie if he is telling the truth does have time to regroup and pull it together. I am not writing him off yet, although I doubt he will ever get my vote.

    When I go down the list of perspective GOP candidates, I see a lot to be desired. Ryan, Huckabee, Paul and Cruz I do not think could draw in enough independent votes to come close to winning. Jeb Bush might come close and given another year for things to settle down he just may end up being the Republican's best hope. But like bridgegate, no one knows when another shoe will fall. Hillary keeping an enemies list could really hurt her and she was never much liked by independents if one looks at her favor/unfavorable ratings.

    Still, I would like to get 2014 in the books before starting on 2016.

    I heard on the new that Landrieu gave a rebuttle to Boxer on the Keystone pipeline. This is what I keep talking about, Boxer representing the people of her state by being against it and Landrieu representing the people of Louisiana by being for it. I have no problem with the stance either of these two senators have taken, in fact I am quite happy to see both representing the views of the people of their state. To me that is what counts the most, not what side you are on.

    I know that is hard for any die hard Republican or Democrat to understand. I think both of these senators are doing the right thing, representing and fighting for what the people of their state want them too. This is how the framers envisioned our representative democracy to be.
