    Ignore this at your peril, but be my guest.
    Why so much concern for the left? If the left emplodes, the better for conservatives and the GOP. Let nature run its course.

    When I see a large group making a mistake, I often feel compelled to point it out.

    Issa's Congressional oversight committee is hearing IRS. Did you mean a select committee like Gowdy's?

    The 3/4 of Americans figure I provided was referring to a select committee with an independent prosecutor. I wish the left would agree to that.

    I will give you 5 states in the Eastern Time zone to watch which may determine whether or not the Republicans gain control of the senate. The first two are Kentucky and Georgia, two state which currently have Republican senators. A loss in either one of these two states would doom the GOP attempt to retake the senate. Mathematically it would still be possible, but a trend for the electorateís attitude and mentality would have been shown and the trend would not be in the Republicanís favor.

    Assuming the Republicans are able to win in both Kentucky and Georgia, keeping their at risk seats, the next two states are North Carolina and West Virginia. West Virginia looks like almost a sure thing, but North Carolina isnít. To have a realistic chance of winning the senate, the GOP must take both states. With these two states under their belt along with retaining their two at risk states, which means the GOP has only 4 more seats to go. Probably an 80% of winning the senate from this point on. There are 5 states in which Romney beat the pants off Obama in 2012, Montana, South Dakota, Louisiana, Arkansas and Alaska, all the Republicans would have to do if the first 4 states go their way is to win 4 of the 5. Very doable if the trend is going the Republican way. This is not counting blue states like Iowa, Colorado, Michigan which the Republicans still have hopes of winning, although their chances are not as good as the 5 red states I mention.

    The last state in the Eastern Time Zone to keep an eye on if the Republicans win the other 4 states here is New Hampshire. A loss in New Hampshire would be expected and wouldnít hurt the Republicans 80% chance of gaining the senate. But a win in New Hampshire would mean all of a sudden the GOP has only 3 states it needs to gain control and would point to a Republican tidal wave about to hit. If New Hampshire goes Republican, so too might Colorado, Michigan, Iowa and perhaps even Oregon. Now you would be talking about a 10-11 seat pick up.
    So my advice is if the GOP loses either Kentucky or Georgia, go to bed, there is no way they will gain the senate. If the Republicans lose in North Carolina, go to bed, the odds are about 90% against them winning control of the senate. But if the Republicans win all four of those states regardless of New Hampshire, you may want to stay up an hour longer and watch the returns from the states in the Central Time Zone. Arkansas, Louisiana, South Dakota, Iowa, Michigan could be the states you are looking at to put the GOP over the top. If not, there is the Mountain Time zone and Montana with Alaska and perhaps Oregon to follow.

    Kind of long winded aren't I.
    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.

    Nope! I could listen to your reasoning for a lot longer than it took me to read this!

    Not yet, but the info is slowly making it's way to the surface. Just imagine how much crap Obama would be in if the media went after him, the way they went after Nixon.

    Con mish-mash, the 3/4 isn't for a select committee but a special prosecutor.... but the reason you think probably isn't the one for a majority of Americans. More than likely the majority feel the GOP will just use the investigation to try and gain political advantage. About the same number say job recovery is more important than any of the IRS/Benghazi/surveillance of reporters the Right wing is pushing.

    Only 32% think the Benghazi isn't 'just politics'. 44% say there are concerns over Obama and the IRS.

    The GOP isn't getting any bounce from all their investigating, (50% disapproval) and the TPs get a 28% approval rating.
