    And/or the Senate.

    What will be their strategy then?

    The GOP doesn't even have control of the senate. How could they lose it? They're defending 14 seats while the dems are defending 21. It's very likely that the R's will win the senate. What will the dems do when they lose control of the senate for the first time since 2006? Dems have to flip 18 seats to control the house.

    Demand an investigation of course.

    I'm assuming everything is up for grabs.

    hopefully disappear ... or (maybe) stop hating women the elderly the poor and minorities.

    and with Bauchman quitting the House does seem to have come into play.

    Too soon to predict our reaction at the worst possible outcome for this country.

    However, the plan now should be to ensure that all voter rolls are updated and accurate. Someone needs to explain to some Dem poll workers that getting over 100% of the possible votes is impossible. This is a matter that should not be ignored and it wouldn't be had Romney won.

    Look at the numbers. If there are 9 illegitimate voter registrations for every 100 legal ones, either people are registering twice, using fake names or there are illegal aliens registering. The election results in some places mirrored the registrations, with Obama getting 100% or more of the votes in certain places. Needless to say, this is impossible without cheating going on.

    The same. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    The GOP, due to Senate Rules and the recalcitrant minority leader have all the control they need. That you don't understand that reflects poorly on all self described conservatives.

    Technically, you're wrong. That's not surprising. The senate is comprised of 53 dems, 45 repubs, and 2 independents who caucus with the dems. Dems have control of the senate but can't make a compelling case to pass any laws because there is no substance in them.

    The far right will double down, and say the candidates who lost were all RINOs.

    The Republican establishment will make plans on how to rid their party of the lunatic fringe, if they haven't already.

    Off years usually indicate losses for the President's party. I don't see anything that precludes that pattern from continuing. But I also don't see major changes overall.

    That's it. They'll be FORCED to do so. They should be doing it already, but they aren't because they feel paralyzed by the far right that's been doubling down.

    .

    We'll see what the economy looks like.

    I'm not yet convinced the GOP will be able to effectively marginalize the loons. They're still the primary source of energy within the party, and that matters. So if they have a lousy election, they may just argue that it was because they weren't loony enough.

    The obama regime is collapsing and democrats are thinking about republicans losing in 2014! Democrats had better be giving out bonuses for that.

    You gotta give the left wing credit for their ability to fantasize about the political process. Hussein is on the ropes and the A.G. might be facing prison time and they dream about a time of total left wing radicalism without that pesky Constitution getting in the way.
