    Well, congrats to the GOP I guess but it really doesn't mean much.

    We were ahead in the presidential race until the litmus test of the stimulus plan showed our resident politicos were retards.

    If Obama pulls his head out of his ass and mellows his ham-fisted approach the dems will still have a decent chance, and he could even get a 2nd term.

    Personally, I think he's looking for kingship. I think he will self-destruct, and the dem party with him.

    Of course, that's what both sides have been saying about each other for the last 20 years. Or more.

    Somehow, republicans winning by default smacks of how we got into this mess in the first place.

    Pardon me if I'm not terribly excited.

    Figure it this way dude if the Reps don't head off the Dems by 2010 this is going to get one hell of a lot worse before it ever gets better.

    Confidence in Obama's ability to manage the economy has seriously eroded and as a consequence:

    It's not even clear that he will get his party's nomination in 2012.

    With what republicans have shown me since '94, I have zero faith in their ability to make anything better.

    Might as well just issue the ammo and let's get it over with.

    Obama would have to become seriously unpopular to not get the nomination in 2012, but I do believe he is vulnerable to be a one-termer IF the Republicans can emerge a more unified and fiscally conservative party who has a charismatic figure to represent such a platform.

    As of yet, the Repubs are a long ways off from that...

    However, with the Republicans in control, we wouldn't have the stimulus, cap and trade or this insane health care bill. Wouldn't that be better?
