    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.
    I agree with you to a degree: I would appreciate this IF they took it as a message to work together and craft legislation that actually moves the country forward.

    The Republicans, however, have already indicated that they take this as a mandate to do nothing but further obstruct everything and get Obama out of office in 2012.

    This will be the do-nothing Congress and could result in yet another swing in two years. I know that sounds odd, but let's be honest - we're experience a two-year swing right now.

    I think both parties are strongly misreading the electorate - especially independent and moderate voters (who have now swung back and forth three times in four election cycles).

    If Republicans continue to be the party of "no" then they are the ones who are misreading the mood of the country because the number one priority on voters minds are JOBS!!!

    Jobs have been the top issue all year in nearly every state and congressional district.
    Jobs, economic security top issues before midterms - USATODAY.com

    Priorities

    Public's Wish List for Congress -- Jobs and Deficit Reduction - Pew Research Center

    Repubs can't create jobs unless they fund to stimulate the economy, and they can't do that if they want to reduce the deficit, and they can't reduce the deficit or create jobs if they cut taxes. Oh my, what a pickle the Repubs are going to be in.

    But Boehner thinks repealing the healthcare bill is the number one priority. So if Boehner spends all congress's time trying to repeal healthcare, then he'll actually be destroying jobs and increasing the budget deficit. I think Repubs have seriously misread the priorities of American voters. tsk, tsk, tsk. "It's the economy, stupid."

    Obama is in violation of his oath of office under Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution.

    Obama is in violation of his oath of office under Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution.

    Democrats file first legal challenges - TheHill.com

    Looks like Dems are trying to muddy up the waters.

    This is the same reason they are being kicked to the curb in a grand fashion. They refuse to realize the will of the people.

    Yes! The dems have been controlling the white house and congress for the last 10 years and we are sick of it. They got us in to two messy wars, increased spending to record levels, and deregulated the housing market so the economy collapsed. Time to get some Republicans in there for a change.
