    So I was just wondering, once the republicans "take their country back" next week, how long will it take for the country to turn around completely? I just want to know what to expect ahead of time. Good times are coming, right?

    Probably around the same time all the Hopeandchange (TM) is supposed to happen.

    Don't get too excited:

    Barak Hussein will still be president until 2012.

    Just expect 2 years of Repubs trying to stop complete government control as much as they can. That is all your going to get. Watch for Government Departments like EPA for Cap and Trade and so on.. to continue with their Marxist agenda.

    The GOP isn't taking it back. The GOP is the beneficiary (for now) of the Tea Party and the resentment of the American people over what the liberal Democratics have done.

    But if the Dems lose the House alone, the GOP will be able to achieve almost nothing EXCEPT to serve as really good BRAKES on the Obama agenda. That's really the point of this present exercise.

    IF the Dems were to lose BOTH the House AND the Senate (a longer shot), the GOP still wouldn't control much of anything since anything they pass will likely get vetoed by the President and the majorities will not be able to accomplish an override.

    AFTER two years of HARD braking, the full term elections will take place. At that point, not only will any of the remaining driftwood in the GOP be tossed out, but many of the more incorrigible liberal Democratics will get unseated. Roughly another third of the Senate will get challenged in a fashion similar to what happened to Castle in Delaware and what Reid is presently facing. And, crucially, the election WILL be an absolutely crystal clear referendum on the Obama Administration's policies, actions and behaviors.

    With ANY kind of luck, President Obama will follow Jimmah Carter as another failed one-termer Democratic.

    Considering it took from January of 2007 till August of 2008 for the Democrats to send the country into a tailspin, and that recovery takes longer than destruction, I don't see too much positive happening until the spring of 2013
