    Why do people view a potential shut down as a bad thing? The cesspool of scum that is Washington DC wont operate for awhile I say ****ing great! It means that the scum cant **** up things more than they already are, in theory. All the doom and gloom speak I hear when I read potential government shut down articles are amusing, talking about that there will be riots and anarchy. What a joke and besides theres nothing wrong with alittle chaos to liven things up.

    Do you have any idea what a gov't shutdown really means? Less than 1 out of 4 gov't employees will not be showing up for work. It won't be some mass shutdown, I hate to tell you.

    There were enough Senate seats up for the GOP to take control of it too... Reid is still in office, and that's pathetic btw

    If you want to play semantics and say it wasn't a referendum, then I can't with a brick wall... The fact is the media was using the word referendum, and Bush remains an embarrassment to the GOP. Where is Bush? He is still hiding out... read the posts on DP, most "Conservatives" say they weren't even happy with him. He isn't successful post presidency, and he wasn't even invited to the national convention... pathetic.

    IMO it was a referendum on Bush and his policies...

    I am not seeing anything historical with your charts or election results yet... It seems most liberals are still standing by Obama, and he isn't an embarrassment or liability to the party... but maybe he will be in the future. Who knows... I just don't see it.

    Wow, you really just don't get it do you? I'm not denying that the republicans won a lot of seats last November. The point is that they didn't win all of those races with 100% of the vote. Most were won with 50-60 percent of the vote. That still leaves a big chunk of the country that supports the democrats.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    The 2010 Elections had 19 Democrat Senate seats up for re-election......18 Republican

    The 2012 Elections will have 23 Democrat Senate seats up for re-election.......10 Republican

    ........and we can bid goodbye to that **** stain of a Senate leader Harry The Body Odor Reid.

    Conservatives werent happy with Bush because he was acting and spending like a Democrat.....

    ......sort of how you want the newly elected Republicans in the House (Who promised to cut spending).........to act like Democrats and pass Obama's bloated Budget to Bankruptcy.

    That's because both parties only seek to appease the voters. So they do as minimal cuts as they can get away with, saying, "we've cut this, that and the other." And in reality, they actually aren't cutting much at all. They have no intentions of cutting programs where they receive their largest kickbacks from etc.
