    What I think you're thinking of is the announcement by the National Bureau of Economic Research that the recession ended in 2009. However the NBER is a non-government non-profit think tank and isn't controlled nor does it represent the President.

    in 1938, reds picked up 71 seats, in 94 newt nabbed 54

    a pickup of 60, should it happen, and a change in control is really rather rare

    The NBER is considered the "official arbiter of economic contractions and expansions."

    Recession has been over for a while. We're in a period of (very slow) recovery.

    Regardless if actual control changes, it's almost as inevitable as the ****ing tides that the outed party tends to clean up post-presidential election. It's happened in every first mid-term election since the Civil War except for two distinct occasions IIRC.

    Very true. Remember when the Dems took the house in 2006? There was all that talk about how the mighty "pendulum" had swung to the left, "the end of the Reagan revolution," and all that. I'm sure most dems assumed it would take a lot longer than 2 terms to swing back to the right.

    Four years also makes for the quickest turnaround in almost 60 years. In 1955, there was a brief, 2-year stint of Republican control coinciding with the election of Eisenhower.

    When liberal CNN starts singing its over for the dems.

    Its lining up to be a huge landslide.

    Remember liberals, "YES WE CAN" "HOPE" for "CHANGE"!

    It is so amazing that people want to defend Obama and blame everyone else and if anyone opposes Obama it's because of race or personal hate.

    Liberals can't face the facts or truth and they prove it every day here with the attempts at divert attention away from issues they don't understand or the go right for the name calling. Because they lack that ability they never stop to think the reason for our outrage is Obama and the Liberal Anti-American plans, policies, and legislative agenda.

    People see things as going bad because they are and the Liberals have been playing into the hands of Obama who unworthy of any ones trust.

    I love it.. I predicted 75 seats changing hands, and 9 in the senate. I stand behind that.

    Go America!
