    Wow what a difference two years makes huh? Even i didn't think the Republicans would come roaring back to life the way they did on Tuesday. I really did think it would take them many more years to come back. I didn't declare them Dead & Buried like so many others did but i did think it would take them awhile longer to come back. They really did achieve some massive and historical gains on Tuesday. I think winning the majority of Governorships back might be their biggest Win. It doesn't get as much publicity as the Congressional Elections do but having the majority of Governorships will be huge for them in future Elections. So to all those Democrats who were out there boasting about the Republican Party being Dead,i simply say...Not so fast my Friend! :)

    I think people understimated the width and breadth of American opposition to marxism. I think when it became obvious that the lunatics were running the asylum, the people strongly reacted, and showed that, after all, the lunatics do not represent, nor are they a part of, the majority or really anything else that has anything to do with this country.

    Their back but they better pay attention to why their back. If they think going back to the bush/ neo-con Republican Party is why their back they will lose big in 2012. Their back because of the TEA PARTY and we expect things to change. Now it's deliver or be dead forever because the TEA PARTY isn't going anywhere. It can work within the Republican Party or the Republican Party can die and we will form our own party. So Republicans now it's become a real Conservative Party like your supposed to be or be gone forever. They can join the ranks of the Whig's and the Bull Moose Party.

    Interestingly enough, however, were it not for the fact that the teabaggers nominated nutjobs like Angle, O'Donnell and Buck, the GOP would have won back the senate as well!

    I am sure that the teabaggers must be quite proud of THAT! :lol:

    The GOP has a second chance here. Now they need to be fiscally conservative and cut spending. If they do it - they will enjoy large majorities for a long time. Next step -unwind Obamacare....
