    I don't think you were watching the same elections we all were.

But we didn't need Obama being able to blame the GOP for every screw up that happens starting in January. Reid is still senate leader and a big target to paint with the brush of failure and taint Obama by association
    excellent point.

    Oh, how I hope the Dems will be making similar claims. It will only make them appear more out of touch with reality than they already do. How about Pelosi's inane assurances that the Dems would retain the house? LOL - I wonder how many of those that got the boot are thinking back to when she assured them over the healthcare vote and are thinking "well, damn."

    Mike Lee won by 30% in utah in the senate.

    Rand Paul won by 10% in kentucky in the senate.

    Tim Scott in SC's race for a house seat won by almost 40%

    Nikki Haley won the SC governor race by 4%

    Maine hasn't been called yet but LePaige is currently winning in the Governor race.

    Jesse Kelly is down in the house race in Arizona but its too close to call at the moment

    Ken Buck is down by .4% with still 13% left to report and the race is too close to call

    Marco Rubio won by 20% over a former republican indepdendent and almost 30 over the democrat in the senate.

    Ron Johnson won by almost 5% over a long time and well known member of the senate in Fiengold.

    Your big losses so far is Angle, Miller, and O'Donnell. O'Donnell wasn't exactly expected by most reasonable observers, including the reasonable oens in the tea party, to take the seat. And Miller essentially lost to a Republican.

    I know this may come as a stunning shock to you Disney, but just because the media and democrats were obsessed with Angle and O'Donnell and tried DESPERATELY to make them the face and singular focus of what the tea party is because they were the best fodder for attacking them to create ratings and/or political advantages, doesn't actually make them the whole of the Tea Party let alone the main ones.

    Johnson, Rubio, and Paul into the senate are all big ones. LePaige and Haley (and while not as much Tea Paryt specifically backed, Martinez in NM as well) are big ones in governor seats.

    To suggest there was an "across the board repudiation" is nothing but an incredibly ignorant comment and I suggest you actually look at the results and educate yourself on it before speaking on it again.
    Actually, when you look at the statistics, the races that the tea party candidate won were for the most part in ultra-red districts where anyone with an (R) behind their name would have won, with few exceptions.....in competitive districts, the tea-party candidates lost across the board.

    and I hope that the GOP doesn't recognize the lesson this election as well....however, I suspect that there will be a big move on the part of the GOP to silence Palin and the teabaggers before 2012...it will be interesting to watch.

    It's funny to see you all weepy and whiny, You haven't used the term "Teabaggers" recently until the election, are you really that sad panda? feel like you were teabagged this election?

    Re: Gallup poll points to GOP rout

    I rarely talk about the teabaggers at all....and I'm not weepy at all. I'm actually very happy for the most part....This election reminded me once again why I moved to California. Most all of my candidates won. The one that looks like he is going to lose is the one Republican that I voted for.
    The reality is....by losing the house, the Democrats probably just reassured winning the whitehouse in 2012. If the economy improves, Obama is likely to benefit in 2012...if it doesn't, the GOP is not going to be in a good position to say "hey...we did so well with Congress....give us the whitehouse".
    All in all....I don't feel bad about the election at all.
