    Well shucks! At least they won that special election in NY-23, I mean- wait. You mean they didn't win? So wait? The GOP, the party of fiscal responsibility and spending money wisely spent $90 million to go 2-5?

    :eek:

    If NJ is any indication, don't hold your breath on election day. The dems have less money than the GOP, whats up with that? Where's all that internet cash??

    Just because the party in power doesn't historically bold well on the off year elections doesn't mean the party not in power does not have crappy leadership.

    I would be pissed off if I were a Republican. Seriously, you spend $90 million dollars to win two governor races but lose five congressional races. And it's going to be six once the Democrat wins back Ted Kennedy's seat.

    I'll ask you the same question I did in my OP. If the Republicans want to be back in power but cannot even show fiscal responsibility with their own donations then are they going to show it when they're running Congress again? Because they didn't last time.

    Hell, Steele just went on record saying that the GOP has fucked up since Reagan (though Reagan and George H.W. Bush weren't that much different.)

    You're trying to apply logic to a case where the voters simply want to throw the party in-power out. Its not that complicated. Obama won because the GOP screwed-up. The GOP will win because Obama and the dems screwed-up. Its becoming harder to see either party doing anything positive for the middle-class. Look at SS & Medicare, both going bankrupt, In my area hospitals won't take medicare patients, they keep losing money on them. Obama's UHC is a non-starter, like most of his initiatives & policies. How about prosecuting Navy Seals and the CIA instead of terrorists? Any wonder terrorists are having a field day?
