    Wow - while midterms generally favor the minority party, the coming 2010 Election appears poised to show a massive shift in favor of the Republican Party, with a now very real possibility of the Republicans taking back leadership of the House.

    RCP outlines the following:

    House of Representatives: Currently +18 strongly in favor of the Republicans, but with an additional 30 seats currently labeled as toss-up - and of those 30 seats, Democrats currently hold 29 of them., meaning Democrat incumbents are now scrambling to maintain control of many seats they already have. If the Republicans manage to take 22 of those 29 "toss up" seats, they will most likely take back the House - a very distinct possiblity now. Pelosi is bye-bye...

    U.S. Senate: RCP shows that the Republicans will likely pick up an additional four Senate seats, and possibly two more currently labeled toss up, for a total shift of six Senate seats, which while allowing Democrats to continue control of the Senate, would force the Democrats to have to negotiate fully with Republicans to get any legislation passed - and would also likely result in the ouster of Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader. Reid is bye-bye...

    A stunning political tide of discontent appears ready to once again wash over DC, with the current Democrat leadership to be drowned beneath its waters...

    Good luck to the GOP

    Hope you come up with a clear message of what you plan to do once you are elected.

    Should be fun

    The republican party would nuke the democrats in 2010 and 2012 if they would come up with something radical to get votes but I fear they won't and I am not inclined to vote for them until they propose something I like.

    I wish other people would understand that as well.

    Absolutely, they only have 9 months till the Republican landslide

    So pass
    Healthcare
    Cap and Trade
    Fund Stemcell research
    Tough environmental standards
    Green Technologies
    Education reforms

    Then, since Obama is President Veto everything the Republicans do to try to rescind it. Thats what the Republicans did

    Looks like that GOP landslide will do no good. Let Obama veto everything they pass and then we can mock them because they can't get anything done.

    We can also blame the deficit on the GOP Congress

    I'm starting to like this GOP Landslide

    Too early to make predictions. Heck the first week of November is too early sometimes.

    It would be a nice way to castrate the President if he had any balls to begin with
