    Why's that? They don't have a veto majority. Obamacare is still not going to go away.

    I'm laughing that you actually believe it was an act of God the Republicans won the senate.

    re: GOP seizes Senate

    I'm going to write down what I predict the outcome of the Republican controlled House and Senate (and Supreme Court majority) -- what they'll do...and won't do. Then I'm gonna safely put it away and in two years I'll break it out and see how accurate my predictions are.

    So now the day of reckoning is here. With a majority conservative Supreme Court. The majority House and Senate. It's time for the Republicans to put up or shut up -- and stop crying like little snots that they are perpetual victims to the devious liberal media and those horrible Dem dirty tricks that's held them back from taking the Congressional throne.

    Liberals have arrogantly declared countless times here that Republicans are done as a legitimate party.

    Midterms are when the adults vote. Democrats better find a dynamic personality somewhere if they expect the kids to show up in '16 like they did for Obama.

    Yep. One day in, almost, and they've done nothing. Nothing.

    I'm laughing at the notion that anyone believes there are still Christians left in the Democrat party.

    In fact, anyone who votes for a liberal democrat on religious grounds these days, may as well paint a pentogram on their living room floor.

    As I stated long before yesterday, a necessary GOP win this year is but the first step towards landslide victories for the Democrats in 2016 all over the country. It simply had to happen as part of the taking back of the country and burying ring wing ideology.

    re: GOP seizes Senate

    The sad truth here is the blame is on the American people. We vote for 8 years of GWB then swing far away for 8 years of Obama. Now we swing for the Reps to dominate. So the question is what good is putting a band aid on an wound that has been open sine the days of Tip O'Neal and Reagan talking face to face. What have we solved? This is like constantly searching for athletes to form a winning team but we still wind up out of the playoffs years after year. Does any single person here actually believe the slime balls in Washington will suddenly work together? The ONLY thing this proves is the current two party system is the noose around America's neck. It simply is not and will not ever work again.

    Unfortunately for Hillary, she doesn't play basketball and nobody cares what's on her iPod. How does she expect younger voters to turn out in droves?
