You know very well that I'm not deeply immersed in Capitol Hill seat numbers. But I was referring to the movement, not the
congressional reps.
Well, in our system, without the congressional rep, it ain't a movement, it's a constipation;) what ain't going nowhere.

In less than 2 years, I believe this Prez will either screw up on an enormous scale, or have a series of screw ups of a lesser degree.
Whichever happens, I think it'll be enough for at least a repeat of the 2010 midterms, but much more of a Republican edge this time. And that'll obviously be to reduce Barry to a lame duck, until he can finally be sent packing.
Well, your pre-election predictions didn't lose me any money, but that might be more about how I arranged my wagers. But I was thinking. It'd sure be nice to hear people talking about working within our tried and true system to move the nation forward rather than m-o-o-ore hyper-ventilating focus on naming the President's moles. I got a strong impression that that was big part of last Tuesday's Memo from the Nation (ka "Da Boss"), saying, "There, now, we fired the rabble-rousers. Now quit the sh*t and git to work."

You guys need to decide if you want the party just to make your faction feel good, or if you want back in the game. I'm telling ya, people are sick of the dirt. Do a quick study on how backlashes work. You're due...

First of all, I live in the L.A. area, not San Francisco.
Nor do I appreciate the generalization. It's like Romney's, about the 47 percenters.
And it's remarkable that you put down somebody for making a good living through dedication to hard work.
As for the divorces, my experience is that it's the parties, especially the ones with lots of dough, who drag it out endlessly and for no reason other than to make sure the other spouse suffers, while the attorneys attempt to reach closure. Oh yeah, it's a windfall, but hey, if the husband is willing to spend millions (yes, I have had that) for a lawyer so that the wife gets nothing....
Anyway, yes, I do well, but nevertheless I'm a liberal and proud of it.
What precisely is it about liberalism that makes you proud to be one?

Sean Hannity on Fox last night. Was complaining about the ugly smear tactics the Obama used to tear down this "good man" Mitt Romney. This from the hypocrite that has called President Obama a socialist, a Marxist, a communist a fascist a foreigner a racist. They have compared him to Stalin and Hitler. They really can't see how hypocritical that is and how much it turns American voters off to the Republican party. if you are going to do that and then complain that they called your guy a "vulture capitalist" - that just shows you as completely out of touch with reality. And those tactics hurt the cause of the GOP more than they help it. They push more voters away than they pull in. That is why the GOP lost among "cosmopolitan conservatives." According to exit polls, more young, urban, educated people who identify as moderates and conservatives voted for Obama than Romney.
It's always funny when liberals spend so much time telling us how much what we say is hurting our cause, when in fact, it's their feelings that's being hurt by the truth!:)

I believe one of the following two scenarios will play out.
1. The Republicans come to their senses and work with the President to solve our problems and good things and great accomplishments are made. The economy moves forward faster than most thought possible. As a reward the American people keep things largely the same in 2014 with a split Congress and America wins.
2. The Republicans remain obstructionist and America suffers. In 2014 the American people continue trying to vote commonsense into the Republican Party and they lose the House and more Senate seats. Ideally, the Republicans retain 40 seats in the Senate to keep the Dems from getting too stupid. After this election, the Republicans decide the American people want progress instead of obstructionism.
Do you think Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats have enough people to submit a budget this year? As everyone knows, creating and maintaining a budget is always the first step when you're trying to get your finances in order.

" If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.-John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

<quoted text>I don't need comfort Hip, nothing will change much for me and i still bask in the glory of what has been accomplished in America. And in 4 years well we'll see. But let's be frank. You aren't exactly a big city guy though you like to portray yourself as worldly, I just don't see you that way. It's not a slam just a comment.
Boy, which way to go first?

Worldly? I sure don't recall "portray"ing myself as worldly. If I've "portray"ed myself in any way it's been as a working class family man from a long line of working-class families. But worldly? Now that's fun-ny.

As for the "big city" - first, I have no idea what's supposed to be gleaned about some difference whether one lives in a city in America or in the country, in America. But apparently you "city folk" see something superior about living in a city. >shrug<

But what's funny is your broad assumptions about people based in your own self-penned script after "meeting" people in an anonymous social forum. I think this has very often lead you to misconceptions. Then when somebody doesn't adhere to your script, you get confused and huffy. Not a slam just a comment.

Case in point - I was born and raised in what was then the 2nd-largest city in IL. Ours was a working-class neighborhood. We played, fought, and went to school with diverse people. We even reached out to a few white folks, just to show how progressive we were. I've lived from the projects to the suburbs. For some in here, minorities are some monolithic group referred to as "the ones I know". For others of us, minorities are among our family, friends, and neighbors. Even after moving out of town, we've never been more than an hour away. We still have our family and friends there, and a good portion of our business. We go to Chicago as often as we can too, to see old friends, like Bill Ayers and such.

So, yeah, I've lived in the city, the burbs, and now my address happens to be rural. See what I mean about assumptions?

Let me ask you something. I know you feel proud that we have a black president. So am I.
Well, here again, I think you're misapprehending my thoughts. Yes, you recall me being proud of the fact that this nation jumped that hurdle. That was election night '08. Many agreed, from both sides of the aisle. Beyond that night, you won't find a post of mine that references his heritage for it's own sake. The election of a black president was an historical milestone, while the President is just a man, who happens to be black. As a friend says, "It ain't no thang."

C'mon, say what you like but at least be honest.

You're overly long response convinces me I'm right. You really have to talk yourself into it don't you, that somehow you and your liberal colleagues take the high road. If it werent so pitiful it'd be funny. I asked you to be honest. Why do you tolerate for instance Biden. he was on that ticket and you are obviously okay with all the racist things he's said.
I don't quail and I sure don't shake my fists. I'm just amazed at your hypocricy.

"Pre-election predictions"...whoooee yessir ya got me there! Good one.

But regarding the rest of your msg, I was never much to conform to SOP. Didn't drink alcohol when it was the cool thing to do. Started smokin' pot 5 years after everyone else. Skated thru HS instead of getting an education. You know some of my HS pals had jobs after school, and some were eventually able to buy their own homes?

My strongest ambition back then was figuring out some way to get a gal's pants off, without the police being involved. But I joined a top-40 band a few years later and it all worked out.

So you can see that I really don't care if the Obama voters are sick of the "dirt", sick of hearing about the "moles", sick of hearing about how badly Obama is ruining our country.

Not that it has much bearing, but I was sick of the nearly EIGHT YEARS of Bush-bashing in here and across the globe, and some of it even continues to this day.

So I'll GLADLY be highlighting each & every blunder that Obama trips over, as long as I'm not in a coma and still able to work this here dadblasted desktop contraption.

What I thought was funny? In the run-up to the election, obama was talking about his PLAN to get america back on its feet.
What plan? And when did he come up with it? More, Why didn't he tell us about it? He kept Saying he had a plan, but never gave any details of it.
Well, could be he was using the french prison term for 'plan'. A 'plan' there is a small metalic vial that screws together, with a hollow center. It's used to smuggle cash, and other small valuables into or out of prison. How? Well, you stuff your valuables into the 'plan' screw it together, and shove it up beside bush's or in this case, obama's head.
Don't get it? BB will explain it to you.

OR Obama's incompetent, the MSM buried the stories until AFTER the election, and Romney ran a conservative campaign after winning the the 1st debate. The MSM admitted after Romney failed to challenge
Obama on Benghazi in the 3rd debate, "if Romney's not gonna bring it up, why should we"?
As for the congressional seats, pay attention. I'm not a political junkie, only a street urchin. I'll leave the ins and outs of CSpan I and II to those who're more interested.
Benghazi was doing Romney more harm among independents than he was gaining off of has adoring base by discussing it. For the most part, his adoring base stayed in a bubble unable to see things objectively which led to their shock and dismay the morning after.

They did Romney a favor not talking about the drone being shot at. All that would have done is remind independents and the military already weary from war how anxious Romney was to go after Iran.

The bubble is kind of like you just ignoring the fact that the Republicans lost seats in the Senate and the House. It allows you to just focus on one Presidential election where you can't see what it is really about.
