WASHINGTON - This has been such an unpredictable political year that it's hard to have confidence in any of the forecasts for November.

Lol
Another Glenn Beck U. Grad, clearly.
What are the "three houses of government" you refer to, professor??
Could you mean the "branches" of government... of which Obama is, and will remain, one?
Or perhaps you mean the "chambers" of Congress-- of which there are only two? And only one of which can Republicans take a majority in?
Obama doesn't need to veto anything-- as the GOP will be unable to get any controversial legislation through Congress.
Healthcare repeal? Meet the filibuster.
Tax cuts for the rich? Republicans can only win there by continuing to obstruct.
It seems like you have very little understanding if how this works.
You are an idiot, the three houses are the Senate, the House of Representatives and the White HOUSE.

All of which are considered houses as Congress is always referred to as having 2 houses by both parties and the white house has always been a...house in govt.

The courts will rip the health care bill to shreds, and when we get a Republican governor and legislature here in Kentucky, we will join the lawsuit(LOL we are using your own tricks against you and you have no way of winning against it).

but we will let you filibuster the numerous bills that try to destroy Obamacare, because that means those are more Senate seats we will win.

As for the tax cuts for the rich(or tax breaks as Democrats like to call them because eventually they will raise taxes period once they think the idiots are back to watching hollywood instead of the news because the economy seems to be doing better), I won't even explain how dumb you have to be to fall for that.

Go back to being an idiot in Chicago, at least you know how that works because you can just watch everyone around you in that city.

I am going to laugh when you refuse to post here anymore after at least 2 of them win, if not all 3 candidates.

When have there been any smart Democratic candidates again?

If we went by IQ or grades in school to determine elections, few if any Democrats would ever win any race at all.

You all have the most idiotic and comical congressional and senate candidates(not to mention other offices) in history.

You do realize you have idiots who think islands can tip over and the earth is a million degrees in the core right?

Blacks vote in order to receive money (Section 8,Public Housing,Medicaid,SNAP,Head Start,etc.)from taxpaying Whites.Unless the Republicans compete to buy your vote,why would you change partys???

There are TWO houses of Congress, moron. And Congress is the national LEGISLATIVE branch. The White House seats the President who is the chief EXECUTIVE.
And in case they no longer teach even basic civics where you went to school, let me inform you that there are THREE branches of government: executive, legislative and judicial.

Your boy Paladino is so f-kd that the conservative NY post endorsed Cuomo for governor. I mean this guy had 1.5 milion dollars and ccreated one job. He bashed the gay pride parade only to have hosted a gay party. Paladino claimed that Cuomo cheated on his wife but never proved it.

Your boy in Alaska Joe Miller refuses to talk about his past. Miller received negative press when his campaign's security guards handcuffed a journalist in mid-October 2010.Miller stated at a town hall meeting that he believed the Berlin Wall was an example of a nation taking effective measures to control illegal immigration

Your girl Christine is the worts, so bad that Karl Rove denounced her. In October 2007 O'Donnell stopped paying on the mortgage for her Wilmington house and the mortgage company obtained a judgment against her in the spring of 2008 for $90,000. The house was due to be sold at a sheriff's auction in August 2008 when she sold it the month prior to her Senate campaign attorney who was also her boyfriend at the time. Several days after the 2010 primary, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington alleged that O'Donnell made false statements on Federal Elections Commission filings and illegally used more than $20,000 of her campaign funds as "her very own personal piggy bank" by claiming campaign expenses during a time when she had no official campaign.[10] The group filed a complaint on September 20, 2010 with the Federal Elections Commission, and asked the U.S. Attorney in Delaware to investigate.[44] O'Donnell responded to the accusations, telling reporters, there is "no truth to it. I personally have not misused the campaign funds,"[47][48] and refused to answer specific questions about her finances asked by CNN

So what, when is the last time you got a job from a poor person?? How on earth do you think a capitalist republic works? It is NOT a DEMOCRACY!! My guess, your not sure what it means to have a republic?

The idea of a utopian democracy will NEVER exist because we are human beings. We are fallable and the Founders knew that more than you'll ever know. The best form of government to allow everyone of its citizens the ability to prosper on thier own is the United States of America. Self-reliance enables everyone around you to improve their lives. Stop worrying about everyone else and start taking care of your own problems. This idea used to be taught in school but now we want to continually worry about what concerns their neighbors have, I believe that's the beginning of communism. Now you see how conservatives reach the conclusion that liberalism leads to socialism which in turn leads to communism.

I agree with a lot of your views, but you really need to review how our government is structured. The White House is not part of the Legislative branch of government. It is the residence and office of the President (Executive branch of government). I am sure the Constitution lays out pretty well how government is structured.

There are avenues for any allegations that come up against a political campaign but they must noe have found anything wrong cause she's still runnin. The PC police are out in force when it comes to Pallidino the vast majority of people in this country believe homosexuality is a "lifestyle" choice and those wierdos shouldn't get any special treatment. Why can't everyone just be Americans and not some classified put-in-a-box category?

Just because Miller doesn't want to comment on his personal life it's not OKAY? You people didn't mind that Obama wasn't vetted properly and that he kept a lot of his personal life out of reach, college grades, etc.

Politicians play these games get over it both sides do it. The problem we have is that our side doesn't play for keeps they are always willing to come across the aisle. Why can't you people came across the ailse? The majority of this counrt happens to be conservative and if they keep getting punished by the left through political correctness and always having to FEEL everyone's pain, there will be a new Revolution and I can tell you who's gonna win. You people don't even have guns for cryin-out-loud, it would be a turkey shoot. I'd just be careful how hard you push, that's all I'm sayin.

Wow. Talk about digging yourself deeper after a stupid post... This is truly one of the most idiotic posts I've EVER seen.

Even if you were right about this moronic "three houses of government" business, you said earlier:

"Your only hope is that Republicans screw up so bad with all 3 houses of govt that they form a real tea party"

Here's a newsflash, dipshit-- Obama is NOT running.

So one way or another, you've totally contradicted yourself in these two posts.

But the larger issue is your painfully embarrassing ignorance about the basic terms and structure of US government. I'd merely assume you were a high school drop-out-- but most kids stop saying stupid shit like this waaay before high school.

Honest to God, stupid shit like this makes me cringe. Good thing you're clearly not smart enough to be embarrassed.

Wow. You might benefit from a little Civics 101 refresher, too. LOL

We were not founded as a "Capitalist Republic" ( whatever that means).

We were founded as ac Representative democracy.

Which means, simply, that citizens don't vet to vote directly on issues. They vote to represent an official, or proxy, who votes on their behalf.

Thus is because the FF's were cultural elitists, who believed, correctly, that the average Anerican was too ignorant to decide policy matters.

A quick glance of this thread shows they were absolutely correct.

This is why the Tea Baggers' complaint of healthcare "being rammed through against the will of the people" was so ridiculous. Because it demonstrated an utter cluelessness about the very basic structure of our republic.

I find it odd how you scary people look at Glenn Beck as your lord and savior, Rush Limbaugh as your speaker and Sarah Palin as your leader. NONE of those people are elected officials and none of them have any desire to be. So in essence, YOU HAVE NO LEADER.

usually because they are unskilled and are doing unskilled work. skilled workers make more money.

that's why cna's don't make as much as lpn's and lpn's don't make as much as rn's and rn's don't make as much as bsn's and bsn's don't make as much as np's etc.....

that's just one field where skill set and educational level increase earning potential.

Well well, I am surprised you even know that.

I said there were 2 houses of Congress idiot, one of your dumb liberal friends insisted that the 2 houses were only called chambers.

and technically there are now 4 or more branches with the massive expansion of govt that has happened since the founding fathers formed it.

Unfortunately most people my age don't even know half of any of this( almost all of those who don't know are Democrats), and my smallest sister is 100 times smarter than many college students in that regard.

I learned all of the basics in 5th grade and then took a very good civics class in high school as an elective to learn all of the process and the history of the offices in govt.

In terms of politics and govt, I know far more than the average college aged person and pretty much everyone here.
