    Cotton would be up if he had not been honest that he would have bombed Syria, whether you like his position of not..Also, The two clintons factor cannot be discounted..Linc has this one a draw..
    I am also leaning to keep MT a Dem Hold although I would be disagreeing with both Cook and Sabato.
    I would like to call MT a draw but if I took my heart out of it, this one is still a lean R.

    Evening AP, what I expected was not to have the House try to defund the ACA attached as a rider to an already negotiated deal. I think I expected them, Republicans as a whole, to let the ACA kick in with its almost full force as it wouldn't be fully impletented due to the numerous presidential exemptions and extensions to let the people have a full year under it before next November 2014 election. Then use the ACA as a campaign tool to win back the senate.

    The unintended consequence of this shutdown and the defunding rider is that it made the ACA more popular. Prior to this battle there was a 13-19 point gap between those who opposed the law and those in favor. The gap was on the oppose side. Now that gap is between 4-10 points. The majority of Americans still oppose it, but not as nearly as much before this battle took place.

    Also instead of having the failure and all the problems HHS is having to get people registered and the other scandals like the IRS, NSA and Syria making the headlines, those have been all but forgot and the public attention is on the battle of the shutdown which the GOP is losing big time. My thoughts.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I am not sure where this is coming from. What you seem to be responding to is about the HHS comment and that seems to be part an parcel to the potential agreement.

    Thanks Polgara..
    I posted earlier for Boehner to run for your Governorship in 2018 when Kasich is term-limited..
    I'd like to see him run for one of your State offices in 2014, right after he trashes Ryan and Cantor for back-stabbing him all along.

    There was never any deal, and they could not override the President's unilateral changes to the law's timeline. The defunding rider was later replaced with three other offers which were all summarily rejected by Reid. The position of the President and majority leader of the Senate has been that we want what we want and there will be no negotiation...

    Good evening, AP.

    I'm beginning my third week of furlough. Mrs. Hays is ready for me to go back to work.

    I will keep my eye on these two, the good thing about doing a monthly is I can change them when I feel like it.

    We'll see what happens. But so far it hasn't been good for the Republicans. But I think come Feb of next year this shutdown will be long forgotten, replaced by other issues, events and happenings. From the reports I seen and heard, there was a deal made prior to the shutdown for spending to be at 986 billion and then the rider was attached after the two side agreed to the spending deal.

    I love the blog Pero..
    You can move McConnell to 'likely' or even 'solid' Republican..
    I can't explain it yet, but something about the two races in South Carolina has been sticking with me for a while..
    You must admit that Reid and McConnell are currently the two grown-ups in DC right now.
