    The ultra Conservative, Southerner Republican wants to challange Arlan Specter in the Republican primary and I say "You Go Pat!!!"

    The state that fired Rick the prick Santorium will surely not elected the Southern Politician Toomey and that means yet another Democratic Senator!!! :clap2:

    Well, if the Republicans continue to act in an extreme partisan manner, 2010 may well see a 70 Dem Senate.

    If Rush Limbo is allowed to keep his leadership post in the GOP that may very well happen

    The Republicans won in 1994 because the President was a dickhead. 2010 appears that it will be a repeat.

    It will be interesting to see Jeb Bush running in 2012 as the odds on favorite to unseat Obama and the Dems. Honestly, I hope that doesn't happen, because if it does, it will mean that things have become dramatically worse. But I wouldn't be against it.

    One good thing; Jeb would make a much better Prez than GW.

    The Republicans seem to be returning to their roots as a true conservative party. They lost their way when Reagan was elected.

    If they were truely conservative instead of religious right, tax cut and spend nut balls, I might vote for them.

    Sorry they were only spend thrifts under GW Bush. Reagan if You'll recall had a Democratic Congress and like it or not Congress is the people responsible for the spending especially state side. The only Budget that Reagan came close to getting through the Democrats who dominated the House for all of his eight years was his first one in 1981 that was for 1982 after that the Democrats in general spent aboput 50% more than Ragan requested every year and then bitched about the deficit they had created.

    Hell I'm beginning to wonder if Obama can find enough quasi honest Democrats to fill his cabinet.

    I believe the opposite is true. If people like Arlen Spector get their way, there may well be 70 Democrats in the Senate by 2010 simply because more and more conservatives will abandon the GOP. Toomey may get the nod anyway since Spector has disgraced America by supporting the deficit-spending bill.
