Virginia is still out, but it looks like Warner will pull it off, so too in Alaska, Begich seems gone but it will take a few more days to make sure.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    No. I know what happened ten years or there about ago. I didn't like it then as I am pro filibuster if pro is the right word. I believe in protecting minority rights to include minority party rights. But I do think a lot of Democrats look at things through Political correctness eyes. It is words that count, not actions. Under PC rules of today you are better off just walking up and killing someone than calling that someone a name. Which reminds me, I owe Power Rob an explanation why I think the filibuster should stay.

    North Carolina was a tough call and I said so. I gave it to Hagan, you Tillis. But all in all things went pretty much like I said it would. You did have NC right, but I got NH.

    There should be room for humor even in politics.

    Based on the outcome, not only with the Senate races last night, but also reflected in the Governor's races, America sent a strong message in my opinion to Obama, and progressives...And that is that his/their policies have failed.

    I am also excited to see the Republican plan for reforming Obamacare. It is going to be an exciting year of putting your money where your mouth is.

    I think you've used the correct terminology there..."reform"....There has been lots of mischaracterization of just what it is leaders like Boehner, and McConnell will do now given the power they have. Will they start using the power of the purse like they should have been all along in the House, or will Boehner be cowed by the temper tantrum cries of racism that will ramp up from the supporters of Obama when he doesn't get his way? Will the Senate under McConnell grow a pair and reel in the out of control, power grabbing POTUS?

    We shall see.

    What I find interesting is in states where a sizeable majority (55% plus) of its citizens were against Obamacare and the Democratic senator ignored the wishes of the people they supposedly represented in order to vote for it, most are pretty much gone.
    AK Begich – is losing and when the results are final, he will be gone
    AR Lincoln & Pryor – Both gone, defeated in the next election after the ACA was passed
    CO Bennett & Udall – Bennett survived, Udall is gone
    IN Bayh – He retired without seeking re-election
    LA Landrieu – In runoff in December at which time she will be gone
    MO McCaskill – she survived only because the Republicans ran a nut in the form of Aiken. She had a 62% disapproval rating, Aiken had a 71% disapproval rating. With anyone but Aiken running against her, she would have been long gone, but such is life in politics.
    MT Tester survived, Baucus retired instead of facing re-election
    NE Nelson – retired instead of facing re-election
    NC Hagan – Defeated by Tillis
    SD Johnson – retired instead of facing re-election
    VA Warner – looks like he will survive by the skin of his teeth.
    WV Byrd and Rockefeller – Both retired instead of seeking re-election
