    I think it's more like a 1 in 2 chance that Republicans will lose control of the House.

    You should bet on it then. Intrade has the odds of the Republicans retaining control at 3 in 4.

    Seems like a bit of Wishful Thinking. No more than a 25% chance of it happening.

    I wonder what craziness they are going to pull this year to beat the debt ceiling disaster of last year and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? Someone is going to be a jackass if not the whole bunch of them. They always have to ratchet up the stupid stunts in an election year.

    The UNEMPLOYMENT rate may hold the answer.

    I think he's trying to fire up the base; there is NO chance of the GOP losing the house. Mitt will need every vote and then some.

    I agree, the president takes the heat during bad economic times, not members of the House.

    You're right about that.

    Why do you think Gingrich should still get SS protection? You said because he's in a Republican primary? How does that warrant SS protection?
