    The omnibus passed last DEC by Paul Ryan saved the GOP from itself this year with no gov't shutdowns.

    Stupid DEMs didn't pound GOPs starting last NOV, while the GOP did start pounding DEMs last NOV over ACA .

And at the end of a bitter and massively expensive campaign, it appeared the Senate might be slipping from Democrats’ grasp as well.

    Looks more and more like its going to be a bad day for dems tommorow.
    The House is out of the Dems reach until 2022, even more out of reach than the White House is to the Reps..... The Senate will be the Reps to enjoy for 2 years, until the exact conditions that put the wind at the back of the Reps reverses and favors the Dems... Enjoy divided government. It will be with us for half a generation. Hopefully the Reps can grow up (propose workable legislation) and do some serious work to show they can govern....

    I'd rather they play golf. None of them have enough intelligence to be able to accomplish anything worthwhile.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    I hear you, and I know what kind of republican "turtle head" is. With these "moderate" repubs my hopes are not up.

I have been known to be wrong though.
    No bubble to burst here. I don't like ole Mitch either. I hope that doesn't disappoint you.

    There's no guarantee that he will survive as Majority Leader if the GOP takes the Senate. In fact, I hope that he doesn't. We need a person in that position that can cross the isle and get things done. Not a person that will completely give up their principles, but at least a person that understands the definition of compromise.

If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Let's see what happens before we condemn an entire party NIMBY.

    The echo you hear regarding Impeachment is from a loud but small group. I wouldn't concern myself with it if I were you.

    If calm heads prevail (which is not guaranteed either) then the action will be for Obama to either sign the bills or veto them, that the GOP held House and Senate put on his desk.

    At that time, we will see who is the real obstructionist. So far, Obama has had ole Harry to do it for him in the Senate - now he may not have that hedge to hide behind.

    Edit: and as for Ted Cruz, I pay more attention to kids in a kindergarten class than I do about what he says.

    We had a chance to do that last election. But... the GOP nominated a person to run against him that was, well...

    If she couldn't beat him in that election climate, she could never win anytime. I feel that the next time he comes up for re-election the GOP will get a better candidate, and, he will be calling a moving company.

    You're a great GOP Beau, one who I respect for not running from your positive, centrist GOP brand. I hate Reid and hope Schumer gets Minority Leader if that is to be. You know how much I support Durbin in spite of your feelings--he's been a leader of the gangs of 14 with good GOPs like Portman, Collins and Alexander.

    It's laughable to hear anti-Reid "independents" who've been silent on McConnell now trashing McConnell--who I want to do great things if he's Majority Leader .
