    heyyyyy... that reminds you? You saying you want to kill me? Or call me a name? Being a PC liberal, both would hurt me equally.

    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 .
    Did you see Obama and Pelosi 'gloat' after the 2008 election?
    Nothing you would admit to, huh?

    Good play in already making excuses if they fail.

    Haha. I guess you don't remember when the democrats took over in 2006, Henry Waxman was investigating everything he could, he said they were finally going to get to the bottom of the Bush WH. They got nothing. But you were okay with that, I bet.

    I have not made excuses for them before. Nor am I making excuses for them now. Nor will I make excuses for them in the future. But they cannot be blamed for the failures of the last eight years. They can be blamed for any failures in the next two.

    Well, I understand what you are thinking, but completely disagree (just on Cruz). Also, he is a rock solid conservative, where McConnell is more of a RINO. Not sure how you even see a choice there.

    Re: The Mid-Terms Results Thread

    McConnell just gave a great news conference IMHO.
    This is one guy who really did get 98% of what he wanted.

    I believe GOPs should be more wary of Mitch if they cross him.
    He's extremely intelligent and has a grasp of every issue.

    And he has the job he always wanted--and dearly loves--good luck to him when I speak to honorable people like you and Beaudreax .

    Another whiny false equivalence. Why don't you look up how many investigations by comparison before you say it was so similar. Lol

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.
    Overall how do you think pollsters did?
    Have you come across any good "battle damage assessments" about last night?

    Iowa was double the damage to the Demos. Not only did Braley lose his Senate seat he lost his House Seat too.

    Our Damage assessment.....Losing Pennsylvania but it is minimal. Debbie Wassermann Schultz and Alan Grayson are still around and were not sent out to pasture. This too is minimal. Very minimal.
