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.

    Yeah it was.....and I didn't just have Silver either. Those In-state polls were accurate there at the end. Especially with Colorado and Iowa. The Numbers that the Repubs won by is whats rockin all the pundits and the Demos themselves.

    While happy with the election returns of course, I also admit to some serious apprehension. The GOP is dealing with an ideologically extreme, narcissistic, incompetent in the White House. Newt Gingrich and the GOP reformers put into power in 1994 had six years to turn it around and were dealing with Bill Clinton who did have some intelligence and leadership/management skills and who desperately needed a legacy after the Monica fiasco. So after several vetoes, he saw the wisdom of building a legacy by agreeing to the GOP's concept of tax reform, welfare reform, and a balanced budget. And it saved his presidency.

    The current GOP newly in power has only two years to accomplish the same thing and have to do it with Obama in the White House and a much more incompetent and ideologically focused media reporting to the public. And if they don't accomplish some major improvement in those two years they will be punished.

    Hillary Clinton has not one single thing on her resume that she can point to as a qualification to be President. But neither did Obama.

    Re: The Mid-Terms Results Thread

    You're the only one of the posters on my notifications I am responding to at this moment.
    None of them has a clue why.
    I'm watching Larry Sabato with Wolf Blizter on CNN right now plus others.
    I hope gloating from people like Rand Paul on all of the "Clinton losers" is the first shot of the 2016 election.

    I noticed a few days ago when you were secure in McConnell taking over--that you began to bash him.
    Your feelings on the filibuster play into that--always have the minority have their "rights"

    I hurt today but I won't walk away from my Democratic party like
    Republicans have done for the last eight years until they rediscovered who they were last night.

    I'm out to the great outdoors right now and the Sun to help my local committeeman pick up signs.

    With comments as I just saw from RNC chief Priebus gloating and bashing Obama,
    the bad part of me hopes Obama and the DEMs stymie the GOP every step of the way just as they did to us.

    Talk to you later and let's break the new records set by McConnell the last 6 years using the filibuster.

    We got beat on a local level here in Illinois as well as on a County, State and Federal level.
    People who think Illinois is a Blue state are nonsensical know-nothings.
    I've lived through the politics of this state for 48 years .

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.

    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.
    Just to be clear, I call Cruz an imbecile in a political sense. I don't doubt he's an intelligent man - many claim Obama is an intelligent man - both men, however, haven't a clue how to leave their over-sized egos at the door and get the business of government accomplished. That makes them both imbeciles, in my book, and unfit to lead.

    This is McConnell's legacy time.
    He's outmaneuvered Reid, Obama and the rest and that's all good for you and others.
    Mitch now has the toughest job in Washington as Boehner has proven himself a spineless coward .

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
    I'll bet you believe that the lack of enthusiasm for Obama has nothing to do with anyone believing him to be too willing to cave. Go ahead.

    This electoral defeat may be just what the Democratic Party needed to wake the hell up, but not at all in the way you want us to. #seeyouin2016

    Democrats will wake up because they are ALWAYS asleep in the midterms. Bunch of lazy, apathetic bastards.
