    since you are in Ohio here is an interesting statistic

    Democrats Pillich and Pepper (I Voted for Pepper because I know him and I think DeWhine is a scum bag) both LOST the Vote in Hamilton County. Now Hamilton County went for Obama mainly because blacks turned out in force and without one of their own on the ticket, stayed home in 10, and now 14. but that was amazing that Mandel thrashed Pillich in this area. and a GOP guy won her old seat easily.

    When DeWhine beat former U of Chicago law Valedictorian and Editor in Chief of that uber prestigious law review, RIchard Cordray i was stunned in 2010

    CBS Just called the Senate for the GOP BTW. Kay Hagan is predicted to have lost

    I'd like to see the filibuster blown up. I don't care if the GOP or the Dems do it. The people vote for a party to lead. Let them lead. If the people don't like the direction, that is what the next election is for. just my opinion but I'd rather see direction rather than the directionless which is what the filibuster provides.

    Looks like Republicans will have 55 Senate seats when this is done.

    Makes me wonder how he's going to handle the swing in the congress, and how he'll work with them, or more likely not. He's really not got a strong track record of this.
    Obama is perhaps the lamest duck ever.

    Tillis Wins!



    This could go up to 10 seats, legitimately. Damn. That's..... kind of a wave.

    GOPs invented the threat of the nuclear option last decade.
    Please don't make me use the word lie towards you .

    Re: The Mid-Terms Results Thread

    There's nothing that will turn Americans against Republicans more than the Republicans controlling congress. Throughout my entire life, everybody hates congress, so whoever is in charge gets booted. It's totally true though - congress sucks. It's a group of people who are bought and owned by special interests. Campaign finance reform is our only hope to fix this sham.

    So go on and celebrate, Republicans. It'll only be a matter of time before everybody hates your party because people still haven't figured out what's wrong with our system and will have an easier time accepting that it's all the Republican party's fault.
