    Obamacare possibly overturned.

    Obama possibly overturned.

    The senate may become controlled by the gop.

    The Tea Party may remain intact in the house.


    Things may become very volatile on USMB come 12 months from now. I wasn't here in 2008 to witness such a drastic change so I'm not sure what to expect.

    With Barney Frank and now Ben Nelson announcing retirements I would expect to see more Dems giving it up rather than get kicked to the curb in an election.

    So do it. They have the choice of running...having Obama come speak for them (which they don't want because he's poison)...having thier asses kicked out by the people...or take the coward's way out and escape.

    Just the retirement of Frank is huge in my book. Like I called for earlier for the gop to get fresh blood with new ideas I hope the left goes through the same change. Get rid of all the old war horses. With Pelosi first in line.

    The potential for disaster in the republican camp ought to be giving you nightmares. Next to some of those loose cannons rolling around in an election year, any party specific problems the democrats have are minor.

    Wait till we see what's in Obama's bag o tricks. There was a reason the residents of Romania would impale the corpse of a suspected vampire with a cross shaped wooden stake. Obama is not stupid, and far too devious, cunning, conniving, and duplicitous to be counted out so soon, no matter how joyous and fortuitous the news may be at the time

    Have no doubt I'm aware of our slim pickins for potus. If we lose my only hope will be that it becomes a turning point for the gop. Worse yet if the opposite of my op happens it will be my head exploding on YouTube.

    What are you suckers going to do if you're wrong? I certainly don't think anything's a lock. Long way to go.
