We GAINED 9 seats in the peoples house a couple of months ago, and 3 senate seats.
If not in 21 months, then 100% definitely in 2016 we will take back the peoples house.
Keep running those teabaggers.
You also keep running up the debt, taking down the economy and worry more about gay rights than jobs, and in 2016 you will be out of power all together!

Sounds like something straight from Rasmussen. Because, we all know how tuned in they are.

OK, which part of my comment had anything to do with 2012??? OH, wait, you didn't have a actual rebuttal to my comment so you attempted to divert the conversation your way!..IF you continue to raise the debt and continue the unemployment numbers, even the uneducated masses will have to see the 'plan" ain't workin!

Did I quote Rasmussen or Gallup, or any other poll for that matter? AH NO,! Reread my post then attempt to come back with some logical, factual rebuttal, if you can!

I did not say you quoted Rassmussen - I said it sounds like something from them.

So you want address what I said originally, or are you like the "Professor" just another wacked out liberal who trolls the internet feigning some level of intelligence?

That's what your side said last year too. How'd that turn out for you?

On the other hand, I correctly predicted the President would be re-elected.

Why do you think your predictions will be any more accurate this time?

And where exactly did I make a prediction without a qualifier? I said, If you keep running up the debt, and continue with the high unemployment, you will be out in 2016,,, Speculation, or predicting as you call it, is not a science, a lot depend on luck,,, you know, like Hurricane Sandy!

It doesn't matter WHO is in charge, our debt will continue to be run up for the foreseeable future. Neither the GOPasaurs nor the Dems have a plan to balance the budget for at least a decade.

Btw, I also predicted Hurricane Sandy would hit New York & New Jersey and that they would whine about the lack of taxpayer money to help them rebuild their multi-million dollar waterfront homes.

Am i missing something about Hurricane Sandy?...Here in S. Florida we spend thousands on high, homeowner's insurance premiums, due to our tropical region, having occasional hurricanes....it's simply mandatory for intelligent life.....These Sandy victims, living so closely to the water, MUST HAVE HAD ADEQUATE INSURANCE, CORRECT?....They certainly don't expect the taxpayers to fund their rebuilding and ocean/beach lifestyle?????????

Taking down the economy?

Have you seen the DOW recently? Do you know what the DOW was on 1/20/09, and do you know what it is today? Do you have a 401(k)? How much has it increased since 2009?

Are we still shedding 3/4 of a million jobs a month?

So we will Use Wall Street as the barometer for an improving economy? OK. So all of those on food stamps and in the unemployment lines souls take heart their 401k is improving. Great. Helps me but I am not among those who needs help.

So refreshing to see those that promote the Reich....so absorbed in the wellbeing of those who are on foodstamps or unemployed.....concern, that was actually very rarely seen prior to the election.....concern for the downtrodden, eh?.....

Hey blue balls, it was your liberal buddy that said, Wall Street was better, his 401K was up and we were going to use Wall Street as the barometer, I merely showed the foolishness of this comments by point out the obvious!
