    It helps point out the insidious nature politics. Two people can take the same facts and come up with exactly opposite analyses. Or two people can up with a conclusion and find very different facts to support it.

    But you failed to answer my question, so I guess I'll ask again: "You dont think the Democrats can take back the Senate by 2016 if not then 2020? "

    I know you didn't ask me, but would you mind if I opined?

    Anyone who has observed politics from a historical perspective knows that the political pendulum is forever swinging from the left to the right. Surely, the democrats will take it back. Then the republicans. Then the democrats. Then the republicans. Rinse and repeat.

    The right will continue to whine when their side loses. And so will the left. It's the American way. We are a nation of whiners. That is one thing both sides have very much in common.

    It took every stretch and twist of every trick known to American politics and law, and liberals still had to pass the ACA in the middle of the night. Nancy Pelosi admitted that nobody in Congress even bothered to read it on the Democratic side. Too many silly, stupid Americans didn't even know what was really happening.

    The smoke-and-mirror posturing and blatant lies caught up with them, and now they're paying the price.

    Republicans were just awarded the task of shredding the ACA in its ridiculous form, and destroying Obama's attempt to rig American politics for the foreseeable future.

    Wow, what is it about socialists who believe their ideology is a success? Name for me one socialist country that has ever been successful and define that success in terms of individual benefits?

Too bad that basic economics isn't being taught in today's schools.

    Sure, Democrats can take back the Senate but not with liberal policies and results

    So when the Democrats do take back the Senate or House will it be "the Americans going back to sleep"? Or will they "be waking back up again?"
