    If that were to happen then the mere fact that Reid would lose his position as gatekeeper would change Washington calculus significantly. All the bills that Reid sits on in the Senate would start moving on to eventual presidential vetoes.

    Because it's a tie in the Senate, courtesy of both Independents caucusing with the Dems, Reid is still gatekeeper. But, because it's a tie, Reid gets his wings clipped.

    Re: Republican David Jolly beats Alex Sink in Florida special election

    Obama's approval ratings currently mimic those of George Bush during the mid term elections in 2006 when Republicans lost control of the U.S. Senate and House: The March 2006 NBC/WSJ poll had Bush’s job-approval rating at 37 percent.

    Some of the erosion in Obama’s numbers is coming from Democrats, with a record-high 20 percent of his party now disapproving of the president’s job performance. Not good for Dems going into this election. There are three things where you find outrage on both sides of the aisle. Obamacare, IRS, and CIA/NSA spying.

    Looks like Lois Lerner may be headed for some jail time and arrest for her contempt of Congress. Her lawyers recently released a letter that Lerner would only testify if she was guaranteed full immunity or ordered by a Federal Court. So much for innocence. I don't care what side of the aisle your political leanings lie, when it comes to crooked dealings with the IRS, there's outrage on both sides. That goes for all the spying being done on Americans as well. All these things are abuses of power whether it be a healthcare bill that was passed and signed into law and no Democrat was fully aware what was in it, to a President abusing his power using the executive branch to legislate changes to the law as it goes along. The abuse of power displayed by our CIA/NSA over invasions of our privacy and thinking they have a damn license to lie over it doesn't sit well with many on the left and right. Yet this White House keeps making excuses for it. It's because of these abuses of power the Democrats will pay the price this November.

    What makes you think that the Dems will gain seats in the House, much less so many?
