Here's what the Republicans have left us:

Two wars we should have never engaged in, states that are bankrupt, schools that are laying off teachers, home foreclosures, castrated unions, a health system inferior to European countries, a shrinking middle class. The U.S. is becoming Mexico!

Vote straight Democrat!

The US becoming Mexico? Who allowed the Mexican president to bad mouth America?
.
Which president said in 2008 Americans had it too good?
.
Which party put through endless social welfare programs that caused the states to go bankrupt?
.
The cost of the 2 wars is great, but will be nothing compared to the endless of expense the Democrats have cost us.

The democrats had control of the senate, only to be rebuffed and filibustered by the minority party of no!
Even if they keep control of the senate, the republicans will use every trick in the book to stimy the democrats in any attempt to help the American people! Only morons and idots believe this to be a good strategy in order to gain support! The GOP liars and hyporites will continue to sit on the sidelines whiole average Americans struggle to eek out a decent living with the meager scraps that are tossed to us! The real winners will always be the wealthiest that control everything! The republicans know who to cater to, and clearly it's not the poor, the disenfrenchised nor the average middle class Americans!
Folks, the Star Chamber is flexing it's muscles to ensure that their interests are served above the rest of us by using their republican shills and showering them with millions of dollars in illegal foreign donations!
This will ensure their puppets, the GOP, will do as they're told!
A scary and dangerous situation indeed!
This election is not a referendum on president Obama, as the GOP would have you believe, but rather it's about a choice betweeen those that are with US, or those that are against US avegarge middle and lower class Americans!America, it's your choice! Do you want to turn over the reins of our democracy to foreign interests, the plutocrats and oligarchs, or keep it ours?

fedup - stop with the lies........BTW: BO is not part of the GOP.

"My name may not be on the ballot, but our agenda for moving forward is on the ballot, and I need everybody to turn out," Obama said Tuesday afternoon during an appearance on the Rev. Al Sharpton’s radio show.

Oh please, enough of this "obstructioist" crap. What part of "Super Majority" don't you get. Your arguement false, "Super Majority" mean fillabuster proof and with Obama as the rubber-stamp there was limitations as what could be passed by the Democrats that is until along came Senator Brown.

Obama should spend more time worrying about his future unemployment than about losing control of congress. The house is a foregone conclusion and even if the senate doesn't go completely this year then it will by 2012 if the Republicans keep their word to America. Of course Obama won't matter by then anyway as he disappears into the annals of history with that other total loser Jimmy Carter. Even if the Republicans don't get a majority in the senate Obama has to deal with a terrified bunch of democrats who will want to put their own re-election interest above Obama's brand of marxism. Stick a fork in them, they're done baby! And you some of you Republicans better be listening too, you can be sent down the road just as fast!

Keep dreaming Republicans. You all are talking about avalanche and waves. Well nothing could be further from the truth because the GOP is associated with leaving the country in chaos every time they go the White House. Come Tuesday you all will have a wall of Dems stopping your destructive political policies and your dreams of taking over Congress. The choice is clear: vote for chaos or vote for keeping the country moving forward.

Uh don't think so. I think it's you who should prepare yourself, you worst nighmare is about to come true. The only thing that would stop what will happen on Tuesday is..If Obama declares marshall law and installs himself as the ruler...that won't happen either so. Get ready, you people are out and you won't get another chance for a very very long time. You are more than welcome to leave our country and live somewhere more suitable say..Cuba..Venezuela or maybe Greece. Have a nice Day

Fight for the Senate...one of the closest races! Raese will be sworn in and seated immediately to join the LAME DUCK- SHOVE EVERYTHING THROUGH congress...before the conservatives get there! In West Virginia, John Raese is in a close race with Governor Joe Manchin, perhaps the most inconsistent politician in America. Manchin supported cap-and-trade, the stimulus bill, and Obamacare but now he's running away from all three. He's desperately trying to convince voters that he's a conservative. This kind of dishonesty cannot go unchecked. We must fight to help Raese win this race. He's the only candidate who will stop the spending, repeal Obamacare, and defeat job-killing tax increases. The most recent Rasmussen Reports survey shows Raese down just three percentage points. Let's help him close the gap.

Support John Raese (WV)

HOW would anyone vote for a republican that is bent on destroying the recovery?!

Absurd how they campaign negatively, fearmonger, and don't do a dang thing except dig the country in debt, pollution, spending for billioniare interests, and a phony oil war Obama is having to clean up after.

GOP is party of No responsibity and billioniare interests and they ride into office off really ignorant people who believe their nonsense.

We are still trying to dig out of GOP financial meltdown and job losses, mortgage meltdown, derivatives robbery and Bush's banker $700 Billion TARP bailout.

Ok, Let me address this: 1. All or most of the job loss happened under the Obama watch. While the country was bleeding jobs at an enormous rate, What was Obama and the Democrats doing? Oh yeah..working on "Healthcare". As for Obama creating jobs ( you know...Quote "shovel ready" ones), We got "Stimulus", which hasn't brought down the High unemployment rate. So Question; "Where are the jobs?"

Fearmongering: Well if weren't for the fact that in this country we have the highest Poverty rate in 60 year ( all under the Obama and Democratic watch), I really can't justify why citizens would fear what Obama and the Democrats are doing.

The there's national debt ...nuff said
among sueing states who are trying to protect themselves from more debt and protecting their citizens from crimminal elements crossing our borders. This list is getting long and Topix doesn't allow for all the characters , but I hope I gave you some kind of insight into why the country would turn away from the agenda Obama and the Democrats. Have a nice day...See ya Tuesday or NOT

Have you ever actually had a thought of your own or does every thing you say come straight out of the "party" handbook?

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure you're a nice little drone...as far as drones go...but it's a little late in the game for this kind of mindless propaganda to make a difference...don't ya' think?

The dems are probably going to hold the senate. So what? They've had the majority for a while now and still haven't figured out how to use it.

The house will go republican and that, my friend, will be the end of this little "progressive" experiment.

You may not understand it...you may not like it...but this election is very much a referendum on Obama and the democrats agenda and if the party doesn't get the message, 2012 isn't going to be a pleasant experience for you loyalists either.

So, when the dems lose the house will you have the fortitude to come back here and admit you were wrong...or will you simply slink away?

I'm not a republican and I don't support either the policies or the world view that I see in the majority of that party, but if I have to give my vote to a few republican candidates to stop the Pelosi/Obama agenda...I'M THERE!

Sure sure. This country is dominated by media induced fear than anything. We will see rupubs do the same thing they have done over and over, nothing. Perhaps some more fear, but nothing of substance. Then again, when was the last thing a regular person had any substance? Not often. The lame repubs are the mirror image of the public in general-lame.

Sadly, the Obama bashers don't look at the numbers before and at the beginning of obama's administration and believe everything was hunky dory when President Bush left office. Facts and figures to the contrary don't help them. It is a lost cause!
