Blah, blah, blah. The exact same words that were spoken by the left before the 2010 elections where the people turned the leadership of Congress back to Republicans, and it's still Republican leadership today. Not to mention 30 of our 50 states elected Republicans to lead their states. Wishful thinking that the Republicans are gone forever.
Rethgs don't have leadership of Congress - they have the House. Congress is the House AND Senate. Not too smart, are you?

So, let's see, in the last election the Rethugs lost 8 House seats and 3 Senate seats.

Nancy Pelosi is already measuring the drapes.

20 months and counting !!!!!!!!!

I do hope she's not measuring that accurately. Take note of the decreasing approval rating of the Communist.

Pelosi measured the drapes in 2012 to, but it didn't pan out, The last time the Democrats got this cocky, 2010, they lost 46 sets. So they are doing the same thing all over again.

A poll found that 49 percent of respondents have a negative view of the GOP, the highest negative marks for the party in the poll since 2008. Just 26 percent said they have a positive view of the Republican Party.

In contrast, 44 percent of adults surveyed said they have a positive view of the Democratic Party, while 38 percent have a negative one.

The Tea Party also found earned strong negative marks, with 47 percent viewing the movement unfavorably.

Recent polls have showed similar trends in the weeks since the fiscal cliff agreement between the White House and Congress. A Washington Post/ABC poll released last week found that most Americans disapproved of how House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) handled the deal, while a Pew survey found "abysmal" marks for the GOP, with just 19 percent approving of how Republicans handled the fiscal negotiations.

Teabagger ratings are in the toilet.

A comfortable fit for them.

Poor teabagger.

It's like the GOP circus parade of 2012 all over again, theme, "Send in the clowns".

I can't wait. That GOP campaign was so suspenseful, so amusing.

Right !!!!!!!! Because you are so knowledgable. Aren't you the one who said Etchy was going to win a landslide? And aren't you the one who said the Rethugs would win the Senate?

Except for the fact most people don't even pay attention to Congress nor does their leadership affect the outcome of their party. The President is different. That's who everybody focuses on. When the President is looked on unfavorably, it does have an effect on elections with people of his party. Hillary Care is a good example. The housing crash when GW was President that led to a leadership switch in Congress. Commie Care that switched Congressional leadership back to Republicans. Everybody pays attention to (and blames) the President.

Liberals ignore news that makes them "feel" bad so thy don't keep up wth the real news. Unless you are talking about American Idol, or DWTS, they don't know what is going on.

Most conservatives are looking for a 3rd party they can vote for, as the Democrats, and Republicans are equally useless as far as protecting the American Constitution, and Bill of Rights. Neither party truly represents the people, or their interests. They are both controled by special interest groups. It will take the 2014 election to prepare a 3rd party for a winner in 2016. Rand Paul looked too good to be true, and then he initiated the idea we can somehow legitimize the illegal aliens.

Rand Paul is just another fake to make it look like just maybe you might have a choice.

You'll never have a third party President in this country. That's why you go with a person like Paul unless he gets a bit kookie like pops. Most people in our country vote on a candidate to keep the opposing candidate out. So you have a third-party guy who leans to the left. Think Democrats will risk getting a Republican President if their third-party candidate loses? Not in our lifetime. Same thing holds true if the third-party candidate leans right.

The Republicans were a 3rd party when they were first elected. Yes, if Americans get tired enough of taking care of the lazy, and shiftless, and criminal politicians, and illegal aliens they will form a great 3rd party.
