    I don't think so...

    When Obama comes out in full campaign mode, he'll make the GOP look much more childish than they already look. I suspect GOP leaders are very nervous. They should be...

    It'll all come out in the wash. GOP extremists these days are loving all the attention their candidates are getting, and there are times when it bothers me how seriously the media is taking their sometimes ridiculous stances on things....but then I remind myself that this IS the GOP Primary battle and they are the only game in town right now.

    I too think that When the dust clears and the Republicans have decided on who their candidate will be, the extremist nature of what used to be a honorable political party will come to light. When that happens, I don't know how they can win in November. The sound bites (that only appeal to the MOST Conservative among us ) alone will probably destroy them with most voters.

    The record of filibustering and obstructionist politics will hurt them in Congress.

    Now, I am not naive enough to predict a landslide for Dems across the board...there are too many states and regions that are die hard Conservative and always will be to make such a bold prediction. But then again, I can't honestly say that it won't happen either.

    It's going to depend on the mindset of the People of this Country. If you are dumb enough to think that this message board is an indicator, then you'd have to give the nod to the GOP/Tea Party. But as most of us know... the vast majority of the people in this country haven't even heard of the US Message Board. This place draws die hard political junkies from both sides.... it's not even close to a true indicator of the public in general.

    No, it won't be people like you and I that decide this election. It will be Independents and Moderates who will.

    Very good analysis - and I agree. However, I expect to see polls starting to shift left as we approach November.

    Some voters are stupid all the time; some voters are stupid some of the time; however, there aren't enough voters stupid at the same time to give all three branches of government to Republicans in the near future. I predict Obama will win re-election and Dems will win the House and/or Senate (I won't be surprised if Dems win both). People got hoodwinked by Tea Party bullshit in 2010, but I don't expect that'll happen again.

    Amen to that. Many of the wingnuts on this board sound like robo-retards.
