    I agree Dana....but I admit it.

    The voters are all over the place and if the economy falters, the GOP could still make major gains. The continued improvement of the economy though will not result in the windfall that the right-wing is hoping for.

    heh! Well no matter what trend you see there will always be individual concerns that can trump them.

    My contention fits with both:

    People are angry at incumbents; and in the primaries Democrats nominate more liberals and Republicans nominate more conservatives.

    Massachusetts did not have an incumbent so it could go either way; but I think there was something different there as well -- the Democratic candidate was terrible! She had no personality, hated campaigning, and insulted people wherever she went.

    Support for Democrats held steady from last week, while support for Republicans dipped slightly.

    In the third week of April, Republicans posted a 10-point lead over Democrats
    Repubs had gained big, and now democrats are reversing the trend. Good news going into the election.

    um, similar things can be said about Brown in MA, as he is not a Conservative. Brown will Conservative on some issues and break ranks on others. Seems to me it is appropriate for the dems to feel about Critz the same exuberance as Reps felt/feel about Brown.

    That all said, the significance of this race was it was a bit of a bellweather about the strength of the Republican offering in November vs. the strength of the Washington outsider offering. The sample of 1 indicates that people want outsiders rather than want Republicans.... which bodes well to Joe Sestek.

    However, I wouldn't read the tea leaves and say that this is good for Democrats. This was just another race, and there will be many more of them come November. My take on it is that neither candidate was part of the establishment, which really leveled the playing field in a year in which establishment candidates are despised.

    Article is here.

    This is bad because again another Democrat who cannot be trusted ran to the right on issues and won and the people were dumb enough to believe it.

    You'd have thought after the health care bill people would stop pretending enough conservatives democrats actually exist.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    No, I am being a putz as I just demand intellectual honesty and consistency. If you considered those elections significant then don't tell me this one is insignificant. If you thought those were insignificant, then your point here has more credence.

    It seems you have admitted the intellectual dishonesty that I was potentially calling you on, but showed considerable honesty in doing so. I thank you for that.

    As to my opinion, for the record, I will tell you the stand-alone state house elections are insignificant bellweather's as they have little to nothing to do with sitting president or the federal agenda. In interim federal election, however, is very significant, as was the Brown victory in MA.

    Interim house races have some national significance when Repubs or Dems win in otherwise safe districts. They are somewhat bellweathers on the coming election in November. The significance of a Rep win here would be that Dems would probably be hanging on for dear life come November and would likely lose the house. The significance of the Dem win yesterday is that Dems, while they will lose significant seats in November, they are in position to defend against a change of control. Of course, this could have been a different election with different significance had an incumbent been running. The key here is a democrat outsider can win a conservative democratic seat.

    obama insults people a lot

    FOXNews.com - White House Move to Collect &#39;Fishy&#39; Info May Be Illegal, Critics Say

    of course, his petty put downs are only part of the explanation for why all the people he picks get pulverized

    and, if you prefer triumph, you must OPPOSE his pet projects

    as proven in the primaries
