Its going to favor the Cons. Now, the Dems big hope is the Cons shoot themselves in the foot, which they are so good at doing. A little Sept-Oct impeachment talk ought to do the trick... otherwise its a good year for the Cons.

    Conversely, the Cons should get shellacked in 2016 as the the class of 2010 will be up. Between 2014 and 2016, the Cons won't really know what to do with their new found power, because they have no ideas and have no clue how govern, so they will do something stupid with their spare, like actually trying to impeach the President, which will expose them as petty, idea-less and incompetent.... which should turn the Senate handily back to the Dems. Of course, Republican policy pretty much has mathematically eliminate any chance at the White House, so they will lose there as well. So, enjoy November, Cons... it will be your last hurrah for awhile.

    Do take satisfaction, you Cons, as you have pretty much fortified the house through 2021... so you will hold a majority in the house is spite of the fact, as in 2012, most Americans will vote for Dems.
    Impeachment should not be discussed until after the elections-when the republicans control the senate.

    I'm looking forward to it. Obama theideologue won't be able to "pivot" like Clinton. It should be fun.

    They aren't going to do ****. Republicans talk big about getting rid of that tyrant, but then they turn around and say that it's not good for their election chances to attempt it right now.

    As Jon Stewart put it, if your biggest concern in ousting a tyrannical dictator is how it might affect your mid-term election chances, thats not tyranny.

    Today Deuce has a two-for-one sale going on for Straw man arguments.

    Bonus is that one of them is a non-sensical masterwork by Jon Stewart that is meticulously ahistorical.

    Deuce, this may surprise you but getting your commentary from a comedian on a comedy channel is not the best idea.
    First, you bring this type of thing to vote when you have the votes.
    Second, you dont do it when it might help your opponent before an election.
    Finally, its best to do when the senate-which actually conducts the trial-is on your side.

    Lots of reasons to wait but a mere 3 months before revisiting this.

    Dont worry, it wont be far off.
