    I don't know how he could be in the upper part of the list. He has been pretty mediocre in my opinion. As to the worst president in modern American history, Bush has that by a landslide as his foreign policy was an absolute disaster (even ISIS is a direct result of our going into Iraq back in 2003), his administration was riddled with scandals (Hell there were even high level officials in the Department of the Interior doing coke and engaging in orgies with oil company execs and lobbyists), and he left office with the worst financial collapse and recession since the Great Depression.

    As to the topic of the thread, I think its almost a given that the Republicans will take the Senate tomorrow.

    The more we know about Obama and his presidency, the worse he looks. Most of his scandals have come out in the last 2 years, and his senate and admin hasn't exactly been transparent.

    A republican senate will facilitate investigation, but we wont know the worst until he's gone, I think.

    That said, the Dems are banking on Orman going their way. Personally, and its only my humble opinion, I bet that if Orman wins, he does the calculus (actually its simple math) and decides he has a longer career as a Kansas Republican than a Kansas Dem and, if the Senate ends up 50-49 or 49-50, stays a Republican. He certainly will caucus as a Rep if they win outright... King will also like switch.
    Lets find out together. Wont be long now.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but I am anyway. Mitch is just as much an ass as Harry "Jackass" Reid. They are both blowhards and I doubt highly we are going to like what comes out of the Senate if anything. The rumblings already are not good. Don't get me wrong I like that Harry is not Majority leader. I am just saying that in all probability its gona be a "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss." scenario. I have been known to be wrong though.

    Mitch has already said there will be no investigations, so don't count on em. Mitch is a bastard, and holds grudges. He will be out to **** the conservatives for sure.

    He can be influenced, they all can. But first we have the lame duck session and the first 100 days...

    Cool to hear Teddy Cruz say he may not support Mitch. There's always a silver lining and this assclown car should be a riot for two years plus the morons in the GOP Presidential plus the (far worse than the) do nothing Congress of Truman. The echo in the House is already "impeach" .

    Science denying idiot Inhofe will chair Environment--bomb, bomb Iran will chair Defense, Manchin will be bribed to switch parties with a plum chair, Mitch will pay Rand back for his help, Ted will bechung out to dry, Kansas will be in court until Orman is given his seat if he caucuses GOP .

    I am telling ya don't get your hopes up. These ****ers are out to screw us. They are already planning on passing an omnibus spending bill which means they are already throwing out any leverage they have with Obama.

    The GDP today looks terrible compared to six years ago I agree.

    The only thing we know for sure on WED is that the campaign for 2016 begins in earnest that day.

    You've forgotten that Obama halted all Bush probes. Mitch hasn't .
