If the the gop loses all three houses it will just make for a dramatic comeback in 16.

If it falls to filibuster proof, it may well be over for the gop, as we know it.

I'd say the dems finally fracture along the liberal progressive lines, and liberal dems become a new gop unless the libers can mount an offense of some kind with the remains of the gop.

It's basically over now anyway. the dems push amnesty, they get the votes they need to push texas ans Az blue

There will be no more back and forth of the 2 party system, one party will finally destroy the fundamentals of America and our children will be left with little more than a monarchy.

hopefully disappear ... or (maybe) stop hating women the elderly the poor and minorities.
and with Bauchman quitting the House does seem to have come into play.

And stop liking dirty air and dirty water.

Forcing out MB this early (and other TPM reps are leaving also, believe me, before the end of summer) gives the Republican Party a decent chance to hold the House.

However, if the House rejects an immigration reform bill, the GOP will most likely lose House by 40 seats.

The GOP, do to Senate Rules and the recalcitrant minority leader have all the control they need. That you don't understand that reflects poorly on all self described conservatives.
Technically, you're wrong. That's not surprising. The senate is comprised of 53 dems, 45 repubs, and 2 independents who caucus with the dems. Dems have control of the senate but can't make a compelling case to pass any laws because there is no substance in them.
Nice try; your spin won't turn. Anyone who passed high school civics understands why.

What will the Dems do if the Republicans keep the House and take back the Senate? Which the three current scandals make more likely though no means certain to happen than the Republicans losing the House my best guess is they will cry racism, blame Bush why I don't know that just seems to their first instinct and finally claim the elections were stolen.

Yeah, right. That's about as likely as you supporting a tax cut.

There's already a decent chance that Obama only took the Presidency because folks did not see either McCain nor Romney as likely to make a good President.

And when there is a 'questionable' or seemingly somewhat 'radical' President in the White House, the American People tend to put the opposing party in the dominant position in Congress (or a piece of it) to act as a brake or check-and-balance upon such a Presidency.

The Dems are on razor-thin margins with the Senate already.

It seems quite likely that the Republicans will (a) regain the Senate and (b) retain the House, so that the President will be even more of a Lame Duck after the 2014 General Election.

But that's still 18 months in the future and anything can happen.

Given the state of American politics today (not to mention historically), what on earth would give you the idea that such a thing is likely?
