    So long as the GOP doesn't learn from their mistakes and the Democrats don't make a massive, blindingly-stupid mistake, they're never going to retake anything. The GOP doesn't field conservatives anymore, they field neo-cons who are fundamentalist Christian Democrats. They don't believe in fiscal responsibility and keeping the government out of our lives, the GOP hasn't been like that in 20+ years. They've sold the party out to the evangelical Christian right-wing and until they actually become real conservatives again, I really don't want to see them in office ever again.

    They haven't earned it.

    You mean... like Rush and Beck and the rest of the Republican mouthpieces are doing right this second with Obama?

    Pot, meet kettle.

    The GOP has no room whatsoever to claim the moral high ground, they've put their foot in it more times than I can count and they're always quick to point out when someone else even remotely slights them. Yes, they do need to take a breather and reassess their priorities, they had that opportunity after they lost the Presidency, but instead of learning from their mistakes, they rededicated themselves to the same mistakes that cost them the election in the first place.

    They're just not that bright these days.

    Certainly not the incompetent empty skulls we had in the Bush years. I'd be more than happy to find non-empty, entirely competent skulls, but those people know better than to run for high public office.

    Re: 2010 Midterm Election Predictions

    The behavior and records of almost the entire house and senate has been deplorable. If I could get the result I most desired it would be for each and every incumbent to lose his/her seat. Pelosi and Reid et.al. should be tried for their actions against the US in a time of war and exiled to Cuba.

    Could it be that deep in their psyche they know that they are wrong, but are unable to change??

    How in the **** did this thread manage to get 688 votes in it?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but the Republicans are acting like they really don't want to re-gain control. When they start choosing candidates like Paul (KY), Martinez (FL), Angle (NV) and Buck (CO), they are unduly challenging themselves (perhaps shooting themselves in the foot) in otherwise gimme races....

    You left out the whackjob Fiorini in California. Tom Campbell would have beaten Boxer. Instead, the GOP in California chose a woman fired from Hewlett-Packard for her incompetence. Is that really the best the GOP has in California?
