    Ex_Mil8 saidRomney's problems seem to have spread to other Republican candidates. In at least three closely watched Senate races, in Wisconsin, Massachusetts and Virginia, Democrats have suddenly snatched a lead. A few weeks ago, Republicans were pretty sure of making the net gain of four seats to give them control of the Senate. As matters now stand, they won't. And they could conceivably lose their majority in the House as well.

    Is it too much to hope for?

    In Virginia, George "Macaca" Allen (R) is playing it safe this time and keeping his mouth shut. You wouldnt know there's a Senate race going on here.

    ... and that was the end of his chance for election six years ago.


    Both candidates are former governors here and both did well.

    The latest Senate race polling from Real Clear Politics. And here is the House map, but I've noticed that they have not included the LA District 3 race, which is likely GOP.

    Early on, I was sure we (the Democrats) were going to lose the Senate, but Romney and Ryan are the gift that just keeps right on giving. They are dragging down a lot of Republican Congressional candidates, with them.

    Now, I'm sure we'll hold the Senate.
    I think it would be a miracle if we took back the House.
    But, if Romney and Ryan keep talking out of their asses, who knows ?

    Your obsession with American politics is puzzling to say the least.



    I think the citizens of the UK and many other places possess enough brain power to stay informed of not only their own politics, but of other nation's politics too. It's a well know fact that the people of many other countries know more about our own government than we do. So I'd keep my mouth shut....otherwise, he might educate you on a thing or two about your own government.

    Sheesshh! Today I was watching a little bit of CSPAN and they were showing footage of a public policy group, I think Annenberg, do a focus group study of undecided Virginia voters. There was one person who thought it was Obama who was 2 weeks late in surveying the damage from Katrina!

    Exactly. And the sad thing is, that kind of ignorance is very very common here. Australians know much more about our government that most of our citizens. They always astound me at how educated they are on American politics.

    from the SNL sketch:

    "AS AN UNDECIDED VOTER, I've still got questions.

    For instance, WHO ARE THE TWO CANDIDATES RUNNING?-----and please be specific.

    Also, WHEN IS THE ELECTION? "


    Too funny and Too TRUE!

    Voters who are undecided at this point, are the ones who will vote on the basis of the last silly ad they see before walking into the voting booth.

    And this is why I kind of love Romney. Definitely voting for him. I completely agree with his economic policies and I really feel that he doesn't give a rat's ass about social issues, which is kind of where I am in life too.

    Tax cuts for the wealthy. Myself, and especially my parents are in the so-called 1% and Obama is a bitch for wanting us to pay more than we already do.

    Satire, or died-in-the-wool GOP greed?

    FAILURE TO "give a rat's ass about social issues"

    has the unfortunate effect of giving you impaired judgement in all things

    related to the society in which you so resentfully find yourself.

    That is precisely why Gay Republicanism should be classified as a

    Social Pathology.

    THE CURE begins with disassociating yourself from other selfish,

    self-involved, self-serving people. Instead of the next GOP bitch session...

    ...JOIN a neighborhood clean-up effort, FIND a local charity that needs you.

    DO anything that puts you in touch with those Ann Romney refers to as
    ......"YOU PEOPLE".

    Soon you will not only give a rat's ass again.....but you'll find others care

    more about you too.

    GOOD LUCK IN YOUR RECOVERY.

    Not satire at all. The more money people like us have, the better it is for others. We spend more.

    Statistically, 'you' don't. Those on middle and low incomes are far more likely to spend a higher percentage of their income than are rich people. Conversely, rich people are far more likely to squirrel away a higher percentage of their income in tax avoiding schemes than are those on middle and low incomes.

    Of course. However, any increase in our spending is in raw terms, much larger.

    Either way, we are all taxed too much.

    Newsflash: We already saw how that worked out in 2008. It doesn't trickle down.

    Most Americans say rich should pay more taxes, according to new survey
    August 27, 2012


    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57501245/most-americans-say-rich-should-pay-more-taxes-according-to-new-survey/


    UNITED BITCHES OF AMERICA!

    Even among those who describe themselves as "upper class" or "upper middle class," more than half -- or 52 percent -- said upper-income Americans don't pay enough in taxes; only 10 percent said they paid too much.

    This means that DaBulls and his parents are not the 1%. They are the One-Tenth Percent!

    Whatever, I'm just voting in my self interest. Obama is not a very bright individual. We need someone like Mitt, a successful businessman, in charge.

    DaBulls, even if your tax bracket were higher, you'd still have a lot of money left over for spending. That's why Americans don't buy the trickle-down hype.

    That's a lie. He donated $10,000 to anti-gay hate group NOM, so clearly he does care about social issues. He supports a federal constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

    His economic policies are terrible for 99% of Americans.
