    I know the hard core partisan hacks are telling everyone that the dems are sucking ass and they're gonna lose but we have to remember that they are the same folks that declared, without a doubt, that Obama wouldn't be elected in the first place.

    Most of the airplay and noise being made since Obama's election has been coming from the right. But let us not confuse that noise with the silence of the majority of voting citizenry that is more or less just sitting back content with the president. Like a high pitch noise, people tend to tune out certain distractions. I think the right, in it's zeal, have already popped their wad and as soon as the pro-Obama masses take their turn and take to the airwaves, the distant Tea party and GOP whines (and insignificant numbers by comparison) really won't do much for the GOP.

    Then there's the unemployment thing. Couple that with the GOP wanting to restrict those unemployed compensation and I think the dems pretty much have it in the bag. Most folks, right or wrong, still put the current economic situation sqarely on the shoulders of the GOP machine of last as well as their predecessors. Many think it is but a domino effect originally started by the republican's in their defense for big-busness capitolism vs. concern for the citizens.

    Add to the mix the impression that the current GOP politicians are nothing more than obstructionist do-nothings hell-bent on defying the winning party at every turn regardless of the affect it has on the nation, and I'd say the GOP is in for a pretty rough ride.

    But, you never know. But one thing I DO know is that the same folks in here that swore to the high heavens that the dems would lose last go around, will be back making claims against the dem's, that they will lose the NEXT go around. It doesn't seem that the words "Neener, neener" mean much to them. And the beat goes on.
    Restricting compensation to 99 weeks instead of well over two years? how long do you think an unemployed worker should be funded by the taxpayer? Most Obama supporters buy the rhetoric. I know you are smarter than that so stop buying the rhetoric and look at actual results. Pay attention and I know you will come to the right conclusion.

    Re: A Turning Point For Democrats?

    Hey, I hear ya man. Can't say that I disagree. But you tell 16 million people, or give them the impression that the party has a "let 'em eat cake" attitude, vs. the other party that wants to keep sending them checks, who do you think they are gonna vote for?

    Man, I'm just sayin'. I am a realist. Sometimes, that kinda sucks. It ain't always the way I'd like to see things go. But I just love being right most of the time. Sticking with reality helps me to that end.

    I predict a backlash on those who are throwing log-jams on to that track. I wouldn't bet a penny on the GOP making any significant gains. And I will only bet a nickel that the dems will still hold the reins. I wouldn't bet a dime on either.

    Anything can happen. For sure. But I can't see the GOP picking up much, if any, additional support and the support they have now just ain't enough.

    i can see a few seats, but not enough to take over. i do think the whole fight over extending the unemployment benefits will cost the repubs ....

    If Obama supporters are correct this country has shifted far left and more towards the failed socialist model of Europe. Obama was elected on the hope and change message with very few, IMO, believing that is the direction he would take this country. I still believe it is a center right country and based upon the legislation Obama has signed we are going to see real change this fall with Democrats booted out of power, at least I hope that is the case.

    You cannot have a robust economy without a strong private sector and Obama is destroyng that. No private sector employer is going to hire anyone with the economic agenda of Obama having to be paid for. The trillions added to the debt have to be funded and that means higher taxes, lower economic growth. The Obama agenda is a prescription for failure.

    My question is why you support an agenda that grows the public sector, saddles the future with massive debt, and creates greater dependence on the govt.
