    it means that you're going to suffer massive losses in November and that you are still in deep denial. so if media news makes you happy, have fun.

    It means that people are starting to realize Fox has ceased to be a news source and has turned into the propaganda department of the Republican Party. Hopefully.

    It likely doesn't mean all that much. It is a sign that they are becoming more extremist, but that seems to be a working plan for the Republican party at least in the 2010 elections since the Democratic party has always been a big tent party that inspires lukewarm enthusiasm. Sure they lost 21% of their viewers, but the 79% that remains is basically going to be with them for life, which should be like 10 or 20 years tops.

    I agree. I don't think it means anything in the long run, seeing as they still are the #1 news channel in the country.

    While loss of the majority in the House is within the realm of possibility, massive losses are unlikely. The tide is turning. I am willing to predict that the Democrats retain the majority in both houses.

    Demoscratic party big tent? Surely you jest. Ask any highly placed Dem who supported the Iraq war how "big tent" they are. Likewise any Dem who opposed the healthcare "reform". Sorry but Dems are every bit as dogmatic and every bit as obsessed with "purity of thought" as the R's are.

    That's right. That is why anyone who didn't support those platforms and sign a purity pledge was kicked out of the Democratic party.

    Of course. If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

    In other words . . .

    The democrats would have to susspend elections to retain majorities.

    I suggest you look at the latest polls. Most of the toss up contests are now going Dem (ie Harry Reid's) and many of the solid Reps contests are now toss ups (Rand Paul). And then you have elections like the governor of CA where the Tea Party candidate has outspend Brown by multiples yet still trails by a large margin.

    Between the Republican business as usual pledge and Tea Party candidates that refuse to answer questions Republican voter enthusiasm is waning.

    Since you bring up the Iraq War, I'll remind you as to the roll count who supported it.

    House
    Republicans 215 in support 6 against
    Democrats 82 in support 126 against

    Senate
    Republicans 48 in support 1 against
    Democrats 29 in support 21 against

    So that is over 97% unanimity within the Republican party when authorizing a war.
    About 60% unanimity within the Democratic party in the house against the war, at the same time, the Senate had only 42% of the party voting against.


    Yeah, most of these guys are still in office. The Democratic party is big tent.

    Reid is going to win because he's the senior loon in the senate and that's critical for Nevadans. even I'm voting for him for that reason and that reason alone.

    you're going to lose, and lose big.

    As they say, all politics are local. You list the local reason why you will vote for Reid. But somehow you then a apply nation view to all other races. The fact is that individual race polls show that Reps are generally loosing support and Dems are gaining. Bascially, when voters were asked before about the election it was distant and people voted with emotion and general dissatifaction with Dems. But as the election grows closer and it becomes more and more clear that Reps are offering tired, old non-solutions people are choosing Dems.

    Reps may win the House, but without some serious voter fraud (not that I put that past them) they can't win the Senate. Rove was tossed under the bus for his very accurate prediction that the Delaware primary cost Reps any chance as winning the Senate.

    bottom line, bambi's legislative plans are kaput.

    I'd like to discuss the new budget, but, of course, the democrats can't or won't even pass one at a time when you actually have majorities.

    It will be funny watching the spin when Republicans don't make nearly the gains they think they will or that they should. No doubt they'll pick up some seats - but it won't be an overwhelming tidal wave. The Republicans are running too many radical extremists.

    The biggest problem with the TeaParty/Republican party is that they're so full of themselves that they erroneously believe that the majority of America is with them. But that just isn't the case. They're going to be in for a big wake up call when their far right nutters get creamed (e.g. O'Donnell in Delaware or Angle in Nevada). Their candidates play well to the base, but not to the electorate as a whole.

    who do you think is going to vote to fund the dear leader's programs or pass his bills? you people are gridlocked even with an actual majority in both houses. hint: spending bills have to originate in the house. if the senate tries to do this, the bills usually get blue slipped. which party is going to control the next congress? need more hints?

    the GOP is going to win enough seats to cripple bambi's agenda.

    if you think that "not really badly crippled" is better than "kinda badly crippled", "mostly not very crippled" or "not as badly crippled as it could be", carry on with these delusions.

    scoreboard, losers, scoreboard.

    I means that people are going from a conservatively biased source to a liberally biased source.

    Nothing of value lost or gained.

    It means Fox wasn't bigging up the Tea Party candidates enough.
