    I'm setting the over/under at 54.

    Some are saying it could be as high as 90, or as low as 25.

    What's your thought? Over? Under? Should we start a board pool?

    And what about the Senate? Will the Dems lose the 10 seats needed to give control to the Reps/Tea Party? I think they will. Over/Under there is 10 on the button!

    There's really no need to add the Tea Party to the ticket ... it's been obvious from the jump that they are Republicans.

    Dems keep the Senate and the House is a coinflip, IMO.

    You're right. It really isn't as much about the Republicans gaining control, as it is the Democrats being removed from power.

    And I agree with your predictions, but I'm not going to be surprised if the Dems lose the Senate also. They have grossly underestimated how badly they have pissed of the voters.

    Oh, I'm sure they see the writing on the wall. You got guys like Evan Bayh not running and Scott Brown's election was a giant neon sign. They know they are in trouble.

    I just hope this phase the country is in where both parties essentially switch having a controlled gov't is just a phase and not a full retard cycle from now on.

    Without Gerrymandering and with a robust Contract with America type of National campaign, Republicans would pick up 100-120 seats.

    At present, because the RNC would still rather lose than abandon Statism, it's more like 30-50.

    What difference will it make if you replace their ranks with neocons? They're no better than liberals.

    40 seats in the house
    6 in the Senate.
    Gridlock = less damage

    Just what the Republicans need, another Contract with America. That way, in less than another ten years, they can betray the entire contract again and pull the same thing on the fools who vote for them in even less time next time. :thup:

    Don't blame us, blame "Hope and Change". You were in charge, you fucked it up.

    I am glad to see you give them 10 years, considering it is starting to look like the dems are only getting 4 :) 4 controlling congress, and 4 in the white house at this rate.

    That is why the next 4 months are so crucial. The Dems see the writing on the wall. Obama knows he is going to be a lame duck, and knows he may only be a 1 term president. so they have settled on pushing every controversial agenda Item they have through as fast as they can, while they can. So hold on to your asses people the next 4 months are going to be a generational ass raping like none you have ever seen. They will do as much damage to capitalism, and the constitution as they can before we kick their asses to the curb again.
