    Re: The Mid-Terms Results Thread

    On a sidenote, CNN has been a joke during this election coverage. They've been so incredibly slow with calling races, so much so that when the other networks had already called Scott to win Governors race, CNN still had it undecided and only gave the victory to Scott when sources were telling them Crist had already conceded. In other words, Crist knew the election was over before all the experts at CNN.

    I also liked at one point where on Fox, when NH had already been called by them but Brown wanted to hold off, Kelly looked at Rove who was to her right and straight up asked him, "You going to fight this again? We going to have to go down to the (room where they call elections)." I really like Kelly.

    How bad must Dem prospects be when they can't admit the obvious party loyalty of an Independent?

I don't like the idea of having all the leaders up there, as it just muddies up the waters, let Obama be on one side and a strong Republcian on the other, and one on one make things happened. Easier to do without having ten people in the room..
    It's not in Obama's nature. He doesn't work with people and he doesn't have the balls to stand on an issue without cover.

    Back in 2010, Obama had his Senate to run interference for him. That's gone now. He has two choices:

    1. Take a hard line, veto everything and EO anything he can.

    The problem with this approach is that,

    1. He doesn't have the courage to buck the Republicans AND Democrats who want to work with the Republicans.
    2. He will do more harm to Democrats than good.

    2. Act like he's working with the Republicans while he uses his bully pulpit and the media to put them and their ideas in a bad light.

    This is really the only good course he can take. Anything else will either make his own Democrat buddies mad at him and/or hurt the Democrats going into the 2016 Presidential election.

    He's a lame duck and he really needs to accept that fact.

    Meh.....its not so bad Eorhn. Works good when round Democrats.....as they look and know one is serious. Doesn't require them to think.

    Blue blue blue Maryland, running the Lt. Governor of a supposed dark horse Presidential candidate, where he was double digit points up in polls just a little while ago....just wow.

    I said the other day that the President showing up in Maryland trying to campaign for Brown, despite his great poll numbers, was a clear indication that something was VERY wrong there. I was largely shrugged off and told it wasn't really anything to worry about for Democrats. But it just definitely smells funny that Obama randomly showed up there so close to the election for a guy who was so far up in the polls.

    That'll be interesting to listen to on local radio tomorrow.
    Honestly, I think the Governors races have been more shocking then the Senate races.

    But still. The man has proven his chops when it comes to predicting these things, at least to me. I would have hoped that his predictions would have received more news coverage than they did. Rather disappointed that they didn't. Really disappointed.

    Regardless of this midterm election results, the business of the country needs to be done, issues need to be addressed, and the business of the people needs to proceed beyond the Senatorial blocked that has existing since Reid has controlled that agenda.

    You might as well go to bed if that's what you are waiting for. With it being within that .5%, that thing is going to get recounted, no matter who "wins" tonight.
