    Staggering notion here...

    Republicans may end up with 54 seats along with taking governorships in Massachusetts, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, and Wisconsin.

    It'll actually be really interesting to see how this election compares to the 2010 election.

    I don't see him being that corrupt though man, at least no more than other president.

    Congress is fine. The American public is what divides it. Special interests are also good for the country. It's just that people whine about the other people's special interests.

    In time, yes. But this can be a significant short-term victory for Republicans if they take the White House in 2016. They would have a short window to replicate the reforms pushed by President Obama and the Democratic Party. After that point, I would not be surprised in the least that their majorities start to fall thereafter.
    Congress doesn't seem fine to me. Special interests are terrible for the country. Do you know how much federal money is wasted because institutions like for-profit colleges fund congressional races and ensure that there are no rules preventing them from exploiting grants and military benefits? Education, health care, and defense are all incredibly bloated because the people who are supposed to keep them in check are more or less their employees.

    It's true that this could be a significant short term victory. But the trend is obvious: blame whoever is in charge instead of blaming ourselves for allowing our government to be owned by special interest groups, bureaucrats, and billionaires.

    True, I don't think anything can trump his ideology.

    The Press should be all over that dingbat.....and letting her hear how wrong she was and totally out of touch with reality.
