    I give credit to the GOP. Great job guys, you somehow managed to turn the Auto Bailouts, The Stimulus bill, and Health care reform all into terrible monstrosities used by the Left in order to create a socialist government. Nevermind that the Auto Bailouts and Stimulus bill were for the most part successes and saved/created millions of jobs. The verdict is still out on health care, I'm amazed so many disapprove before it has even taken effect...

    If the Republicans win all this means is that there is more Republicans to bash now. IOW everything stays the same except a letter change.

    Based on what? Have you looked at unemployment lately?

    What are you talking about? The congressmen elected tomorrow will take office in January of 2011. The democrats took control of congress in January of 2007, making it 4 years that they would have control if the republicans gain control in tomorrow's election.

    On the topic that the OP presented, I think that if the republicans take office, it's less indicative of people voting against the democrats than it is people voting against the status quo. If things are going poorly, people assuming that leaving the same people in charge will cause them to continue to go poorly.

    I would actually prefer to see the republicans gain a small majority in one house of congress and the democrats retain a small majority in the other.

    The on demand, what have you done for me today attitudes of Americans are going to ensure quick rapid turnover of Congress from here on out IMO. No party will ever enjoy a majority for decades anymore.

    historic

    a turnover of 60 would be the largest, by more than 10%, swing since the party of lincoln leveraged the roosevelt recession of 1937 to takeaway 71 seats in 1938 from the party of jackson

    since 38, the biggest swing was newt, 1994, a gain of 54 reps

    newt was historic

    never has a modern american political enterprise fallen as far and as fast as barack hussein obama

    he once had it all---both houses, a filibuster proof senate, a crisis his supporters saw as an opportunity, a mandate, an excited and inspired electorate proud of ITS historic achievement, an entire world hi fiving, a media thrilled...

    look what he's brought you to

    sorry

    Wans't it a CBO estimate that said if the Stimulus/Auto Bailouts had not been passed we would be looking at a 13% or higher unemployment rate..don't quote me on that though.

    Ridiculous. The last four presidents have all lost congress during their term in office. And Barak Obama still has a higher favorability compared to his predecesors.

    If the Repubs don't create more jobs in the next year and a half and bring down the debt, guess whose going to win back the house and the presidency in 2012? Hint: it won't be Sarah Palin
