    Here is what liberals want to ignore, check the employment box and put in whatever dates you want and you will see employment in this country by month. What you will further see is that the employment today is over 4 million LESS than it was when Obama took office and if you check the unemployment box plus discouraged workers box you will see that there are over 16 million not paying much in Federal Income taxes because they aren't earning much in income because they are out of a job. These are the results the majority in this country are seeing and feeling thus why Democrats suffered historic losses in the Nov. 2 elections

    quinnipiac today: 43% of americans say obama deserves reelection, 49% opine he doesn't

    Obama's 2012 re-election prospects uncertain: poll | Reuters

    only 39% of men, 34% of whites, 35% of independents, 38% of more mature americans over age 35...

    gallup today: obama's generic job approval is 42, a point above his all time low last summer

    Poll: Tea Party support grows; USA divided - USATODAY.com

    on his handling of the economy, the overwhelming concern of our times, he's reached a new nadir, 35% approval

    also:

    1. thirteen dem senators in play in 2012, realistically only one republican

    2. republican domination of redistricting, a generic advantage of about 20 seats

    3. the expectation of a dozen or two dem retirements, creating plum openings, easy pickings, like brian baird's WA3, bart gordon's TN8, john tanner's TN6, marion berry's ARK1, vic snyder's ARK2, david obey's WI7, brad ellsworth's IN8, allan mollohan's WV1, admiral sestak's PA7, bart stupak's MI1, eric massa's NY29...

    4. a net gain of 17 red electoral votes for the presidential, courtesy of the 2010 census

    5. gop control of political machinery, governorships, congressional districts, assemblies, in key battlegrounders---FL, PA, OH, MI, WI, MN, IN, VA, NC, NH, MO, IA, AZ...

    6. nancy pelosi and harry reid---the difficulty of RECRUITING candidates

    Lowest ever: Obama job approval sinks to 39%, as even Democrats' support melts away | Top of the Ticket | Los Angeles Times

    Obama's job approval rating as calculated by the Zogby Poll has now sunk to 39%, a new low for his 22-month presidency that began with so much hope and excitement and poll numbers up around 70. As recently as Sept. 20, his job approval was 49%.

    A whopping 60% now disapprove of his job, up from 51% disapproval Sept. 20.

    Obama now trails in hypothetical 2012 matchups against Republicans Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and the next Bush, Jeb.

    And Obama has even fallen into a statistical tie with none other than Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor.
    support among youth is down to 42

    he's lost 6 points amongst our more mature dems in one week, now at 72%

    more than a quarter of dems disapprove

    and what is there to turn it around?

    the economy, his party's punt on INCOME TAXES, his rodney dangerfield moment in seoul, this phony taliban negotiator (the peter sellers moment), these tawdry tsa instrusions, his quacking lame duck, his ostrich approach to dadt, his 2014 drop dead date in afghanistan, the 600 billion dollars of quantitative easing, the crucifixion of charlie rangel, the triumph of nancy pelosi, this mad provocation from kim mentally ill, or his son?

    it's surprising 7 in 10 dems stick with him, they must have sold their self respect...

    for what?

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    dan maffei conceded today, NY25

    in the last week, solomon ortiz in south TX and melissa bean in IL8, affluent jewish northwest suburbs of chicago, gave up

    that makes SIXTY THREE republican pickups, most seats to switch sides since the year after the great roosevelt recession of 1937

    there are 3 more districts still being counted---jim costa in the southern central valley of california, stockton modesto, merced, fresno, almost down to bakersfield

    my home district, CA11, jerry mcnerny, east bay suburbs and delta, is also still in dispute, but expect both CA seats to go blue

    the third unsettled seat is tim bishop's NY1, eastern long island, suffolk county, including george costanza's estate in the hamptons

    yesterday, the incumbent dem bishop pulled ahead of challenger altschuler by 15 votes

    the republican has led narrowly by about 400 since the day after tsunami tuesday

    there are still 5000 absentees from brookhaven to be booked

    altschuler outballoted bishop in brookhaven

    An absolute historic election Nov. 2, one that Obama supporters understandedly want to ignore but cannot. The Obama approval ratings continue to tank.

    The defections underscore dissatisfaction with the Democratic Party - particularly in the South - and will give Republicans a stronger hand in everything from pushing a conservative fiscal and social agenda to redrawing political maps.
    Dem State Lawmakers Defecting To GOP Post-election - CBS News

    4 in alabama came over, giving my side a shiny new SUPER MAJORITY

    a dem in louisiana switched sides, granting the gop OWNERSHIP of the house

    6 in georgia

    1 in maine, 1 in north dakota

    state rep alan powell in georgia, who turned from blue to red, called tsunami tuesday, "an effective end, at least for the foreseeable future, to the two-party system in state government"

    "in most cases, those who've jumped ship said the democratic party abandoned them, not the other way around," observes cbs

    an elections expert with the national conference of state legislatures opined, "you will probably see the wave continue with even more democrats moving over as the impact of the election settles in"

    my team picked up a whopping 690 seats nov 2, the largest shift since 1966

    we control outright (both houses and gub) TWENTY ONE states

    ie, REDISTRICTING

    the ny senate hangs on a recount

    surprised?

    don't be

    and thank you, keep up the good work

    concerning the 2012 senatorials, where dems have 12 to 14 genuinely endangered vs only scott brown on my side:

    quality knuckle draggers are declaring their candidature at breakneck speed

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...120504279.html

    post grad politicos appreciate the powerful part played in congressionals by RECRUITMENT

    that is, specifically, with nancy and harry and barry at the head of the party STILL in power, it is going to be very difficult to get a kennedy or clinton to cast a line

    RECRUITMENT---a huge part of the 2012 landscape

    and an even bigger problem for the party of pelosi

    party on, progressives, seeya at the polls

    ok, make your call now since you are so focused on 2012; tell us who will lose their seat
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
