    He apparently used some $13 million of his own, personal "ill-gotten" gains and I've heard that made a big difference in getting out the vote.

Looks like it will be 9 Senate Seats won. 10 House seats with 2 pending.....and we picked up 3 governorships with a couple pending. We will hold 34.

    Also the Demos lost 4 house Seats in New York and the Governorship to Illinois.....now that was awesome.

    Very interesting election. From watching CNN this morning on exist polls one sticks out, 33% of Americans are dissatisfied with the Obama administration, 27% are angry at Obama for a total of 60%. Only 37% are satisfied. One other item that stuck out was 47% of all Americans think their kids will have it worse tomorrow than they do today.

    CNN's figures showed the Republican Party leadership much lower than Obama, but the president was the face of the election.
    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.

I don't blame you for that, since incumbency is a pretty valuable factor in close races - just look at Roberts "shellacking" of Orman in Kansas when many were claiming it was very close and Roberts may lose.

    I enjoyed your take on the subject and hope both you and I are still around for 2016's fun.
    I plan on it. Kansas was another miss. But on the polls, here is a good article. One can only work with the numbers given. Not an excuse, just a fact. I feel good on missing only two considering there were a lot of close races. At least in the polls.

    The voters chose to elect a Republican Congress. Just as they chose to elect a Democratic president.

    It is both their job to put differences aside and finally end the gridlock.

    Obama won the election in 2008 with 53% of the vote. His JAR today is 41% so he lost 12% of his supporters. People are waking up to the Obama arrogance and lack of experience along with an agenda that has generated disastrous results. Leadership is about working with the opposition and Obama has failed in that responsibility and doubt he has the ability to do it now. Maybe now we will see all those House bills sitting in Harry Reid's desk actually get a vote. The party of "no" was really the Democrat Party, not the Republicans. It was Harry Reid that created gridlock and now that obstacle is gone

    Well, McConnell hasn't shown that he will stand up for us, so I doubt he will start now. I sure hope he does.

    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.
    I think Cruz is exactly the type of leader that is needed now. To call him an "imbecile" just tells me you really don't know much at all about Ted Cruz. Far from an imbecile, he is probably one of the smartest guys in the Senate (but there is not a lot of competition there) and knows the Constitution as well as anyone.

    Besides his intellect, I like him because he will do what he says and stand his ground. It also helps that he stands for the Constitution, which means he stands for the people v. government. I don't need someone in there to fight for government.

    McConnell? He said that if he was leader, job one would be to get rid of Obamacare. Now, he claims that 60 votes are needed and we can't do it. Where was he when democrats were able to get it reconciled with only 51 votes? He is wishy washy and doesn't even know the rules. No thanks, let's at least get someone competent in there for God's sake.

    At least now they can do joint investigations with the House, instead of ignoring all the scandals and then calling in Apple and scold them for following the tax laws that Congress makes.
