There will definitely be gridlock. America will not toss the Republicans after two years: we gave the Democratic Congress four. I don't expect a big change in the House in 2012, but the Senate will be interesting. 21 Dems (plus Lieberman and Sanders) vs. only 10 Republicans up for re-election. Many of the D senators are from Dixie and the Midwest, the 2010 killing fields. Gridlock won't help the economy, and 2012 will be about replacing Obama.

The ideological divide between Dems and GOP will deepen. There will be no major 3rd party challenge in 2012, as the new crop of Republicans will be seen as an alternative.

At least you're honest enough to admit that "2012 will be all about replacing Obama." It's the one and ONLY priority the GOP has for 2 years, which is why I'm predicting a failure by your party in the next big election. Americans will eventually realize you have nothing to offer but hot air and hatred of the President, and will react accordingly.

I rather like the idea of gridlock during the next two years.

Because it will take a long time to undo the damage Obama has done already.

Control of just one house of congress does not allow the Republicans to run the government.

Dems have the senate and Obama has the White House.

But just getting rid of Obama is time well spent.

No, c'mon, no lame excuses! You guys took the House and have practically equalized in the Senate, no 60-vote majorities for Dems anymore, you're running things! The balls in your court, Repubbie. FIX things.

Waste the time with your Obama fixation, and you're toast in 2012. Mark my words.

We are not running anything except the House of Reps.

Dems still have the White House and the senate.

I think the Republicans will send a lot of good ideas to the other two bodies, but how much we can force Obama to accept remains to be seen.

The GOP is not my party. Last of the independents here.

Still, voters have some patience. We will see how the balance of power plays out, much as 1994, or 2006. If Obama works with the Republican House, like Bill Clinton did after 1994, then he might be re-elected. Another factor is who the GOP nominates: I am guessing it will not be an old DC insider like Dole or McCain.

The biggest difference I see is that Clinton was a centrist and a savvy politician. Obama is a leftist ideologue. Gridlock will be disastrous for the Dems, as the people will want to give the Congress they just voted in a chance. I'm not making any predictions beyond 2012, but the anger by the productive class toward BO and the welfare-statists will be the final nail in his coffin in two years.

I just get called cracker by Will, I'm sorry to see you reach that depth of depravity now.

Just kidding, I'm a cracker, whatever that is. Being from the South, and being called a cracker is about the same as being a yankee, it's local.... What should I call you? And Will, if he's watching?
