    If they can not find a way to stem the tide with Latinos and Woman. Yes, they are done as a Party that can win National Elections.

    Welcome to the 1 Party Dictatorship. I sure hope I have been wrong, and Dems really do have all the answers, because they are going to be running things for some time to come I am afraid.

    Big time, tonight's election was a monumental blow to the right wingers and especially the teabaggers. Mourdock lost, Akin lost, Walsh lost, and West looks like he will lose as well.

    We are just two years removed from a historic electoral shellacking of Obama in the midterms, and Romney either won or nearly won the popular vote.

    Yours is wishful thinking.

    No sorry, yours is flawed. The Beef of that GOP wave was in the house. Which are local elections. What tonight is showing is the GOP has serious problems winning national Elections at this point.

    If nothing changes the WH is going to be a very tough nut for them to crack for a long time.

    No, I am pretty sure I am correct in my facts.

    Look it up if you want to challenge me, and then come back with the facts.

    The GOP only holds the house because they gerrymandered it so effectively after the 2010 redistricting.

    That will work for a while. But when you've created a large number of R+4 districts and the electorate finally shifts left past that +4, the whole thing collapses.

    Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock ... here that? It's the countdown clock for the GOP. Oops, another old white guy dead. And thus shrinks their base.

    The GOP is based on lies these days. Wait till O-care actually starts. 80% approval and epiphany for USA.
