    party is coming apart at the seams, and nothing could be more satisfying...

    it is a blight on American progress, from foreign policy to destruction of the environment to oppression of women to the perpetual myth of "infinite growth" .... to constant intellectual dishonesty overall.

    So they should stick with a party pledge, at the detrement of America?

    Only a Lizzy Warren supporter would take party over country !

    Our country is on the edge of fiscal disaster, and it is time people put away
    their blue and red party lines and focus on our countries red, white, and blue.

    I applaud any republican who favors raising taxes on the wealthiest americans. I think they should first look at reducing deductions.

    I suggest a 75% tax on any bonus over a million dollars to start.

    I would also applaud any democrat who favored a cut in spending.

    It is time put party lines aside and get something done that will benefit our country
    for today and tomorrow.

    She would be a great fit on the banking committee.

    My biggest problem with Liz Warren is her statement that she would be voting
    with Barack Obama every step of the way.

    I hate partison politics.

    They should break ranks if it means cutting spending. The new proposed tax hikes fund the. Govt for like 8 days. Can we all get serious about this defecit. I am for bipartisanship, but who really thinks we can get by with just raising taxes, seriously.

    You do know that they'd find a way around it, right? Besides, with a 75% tax and local taxes it wouldn't make sense for anyone to run a large corproration.
    If it were me, I'd quit and live off my investments.
    You might as well just call for communism and get it over with.

    BUAHAHAHA......yes, at the seams. Progressives take delusion to a whole new level.
    I can still remember the elction of 2008. The Republicans were done. The party was no longer a national player....so on, so forth, blah, blah, blah.
    Then came along the 2010 elections....lol. So much for that.

    You're going to see just which party is coming apart at the seams in 2014. Boy, are those elections going to be fun. :D

    cool story... in other words "we'll be back! with more men!" ... Yeah, see you then. When even more of your old base is dead and buried.

    zzz

    Don't act b-hurt because your party alienates every non-white, non-male sector of the American public. That's no one's fault but your own.

    You may have a chance in 2014, if 1) the economy finally tanks that your heroes of deregulation poisoned long ago, or 2) you completely revamp your party platform from top to bottom.

    Otherwise, the GOP's dead ideas don't stand a chance.

    Low taxes were the core of your team's entire message, the most unabashed position you guys have taken for many years. Now look at them.

    We don't make anything anymore, so there's a revenue problem. ... Due to your side's eagerness to ship jobs overseas. You know, so rich dooshbags can "avoid taxes." LOL....

    Awwww... Stupid math.... It wins every time.

    My point was that Wall Street and the Big Banks are opposing her, why do they have a voice in this selection to this senate committtee???

    Liberalism is here to stay.....

    Conservatism is here to stay....

    And BOTH side not only better used to it, they must accept it fully and without question because it's rock solid fact.

    End of story....

    :rolleyes:

    Um, actually we have enough men now to do the job. We still own the House....easily.
    And historically and consistently, the party of the President takes a big hit in the mid terms. So lets take a look at some math.....if you look at the last 12 Presidents in their last term, on average, they lost 28 seats in the House of Representatives and 4 seats in the Senate. That is actual math.

    The only reason that the economy will tank is because of Obamacare and more government regulation.
    Ask job creators what they think of Obamacare. Ask them how they feel about a second Obama administration.....lol.
    Job creators.....geeez....what do they know? :rolleyes:

    Bring on 2014!!

    I didn't think he would win easily. In fact, in this forum I clearly stated well before the election that he would lose, Elizabeth Warren would win, and that Republicans would continue to control the House.

    History is clearly on the side of the party not in control of the Presidency in the mid-terms. Far fewer people vote during the midterms and they tend to be older and "whiter". That's one of the reasons why Obama was historically annihilated in his first mid-term (along with Obamacare). Why, with significantly less support this past election, would u expect a better outcome for Obama in his second mid term than his first?

    Well, you must have been the only sane wingnut then because PF13, Triumph, Patradamous, et. al were all sure the polls were wrong and that Obama was going to lose.

    I'm aware of the historical significance of midterm elections. Though I think it rather presumptuous (even before I've had a chance to examine the Senate races that are up in 2014) to predict the Senate will flip.

    Obama will have a better outcome in 2014 because the economy will be in significantly better shape than it was in 2010. That's really all there is to it.

    If the right keeps putting up polarizing candidates like Walsh, Akin, Mourdock et al.. there will probably not be much of a change..

    If the economy continues in the right direction and we are out of Afghanistan things may be more optimistic..

    Talk about being presumptuous....lol. If you are aware of the historical ramifications of mid terms then you'd know that it is very reasonable to expect a 6 seat pick-up for the Republicans in the Senate and a 28 seat pick-up in the House. In fact, if you look just at Democratic Presidents in their mid terms they lose even more seats than Republican Presidents on average (33 versus 21).

    Looking at the races up in 2014, I simply don't see it happening. Unfortunately for you, the Republicans won't be able to run against the backdrop of the financial collapse this time, either. And if the economy isn't stagnant, the GOP's entire platform of "let's oppose anything Obama tries to accomplish" won't resonate as it did in the past.

    I do agree that the GOP is likely to hold to the House for the foreseeable future; they've been quite capable in gerrymandering themselves into an advantageous position in the lower chamber.

    Anyone that actually pledged to not raise taxes with America being where it is financially... well they really do need to be kicked out of office.

    The truth that pretty much everyone knows is that we have to raise taxes (and not just on the rich) and start cutting like crazy.
