    I hope that this congress doesn't get bogged down with hearing after hearing
    and not move forward with a solid agenda.
    They will lose in the next cycle, if that happens.
    Opportunity is knocking......

    It wasn't all bad for democrats... They did pick up the Governorship of Pennsylvania from Republicans, and they nabbed a Congressional seat in Florida's 2nd district.

    Maybe they could build on that in 2016.

    Clearly, as a Canadian, I don't have any say in the matter, but personally I think McConnell will be a fine Majority Leader. Unlike Harry Reid, McConnell does actually attempt to get agreement on matters and get things done and he is far more likely to pick off some Democrat support, particularly after what happened yesterday, and he's likely to get some forward movement on policy that the country sorely needs.

    Making someone like Cruz Majority Leader would be like winning the Powerball lottery and flushing your ticket down the toilet. Cruz needs to be marginalized and made even more irrelevant than he already is. He's only "known" because the MSM likes to parade Republican imbeciles before the cameras to push their liberal agenda.

    Yeah but Garcia got his ass handed to him by Curbelo down in Dade-County (usually considering pretty blue district too). In fact, Crist won Dade County pretty handily. Interesting result.

    I disagree with your McConnell assessment. I can't stand Harry Reid but McConnell is the idiot on the flip side of the same coin. He's just terrible.

    This I can agree with. Cruz is inflammatory and the GOP has enough of that in the House. If within their control of the House and the Senate... the Senate starts acting as inflammatory as the House as Cruz is wont to do... I think it'd blow up in the GOP's faces come the general election.

    It would be similar to electing an untried Barrack Obama to the Presidency. Chaos would quickly follow.
