When Chrissy Matthews says the Democrats are going to lose the Senate they are going to lose the Senate. They would discuss their internal polls with him. As more, and more people lose their healthcare, and even Democrats discover they cannot afford the Government scam they will turn on the Democrats in huge numbers. Not one Republican voted for Obamascam. Democrats can't say we voted for it without reading it. That would sound stupid, so they have to let the people think they thought it was a good thing. And that really makes them look stupid. They are between a rock, and a hard spot.

There are 35 seats in the Senate up for reelection. 23 of them are Democrats seats. I am sure Republicans can pick off enough to take back the Senate, and the House was never in jeopardy. Obamascam doesn't look any better today then it did last year. It won't look any better in November when we go to the polls. Democrats will pretend all is well with their scam, but you will know, and vote accordingly.

And Democrats have to run on their vote for ObamaScam. That is the one that is handing the Senate to the Republicans. They can't defend it. All they can do is admit they didn't read it, Shame Shame, and swear to fix it.

Some times it takes people a long time to figure out they are being swindled. If they have not figured it out yet, then the progressives will retain the senate. The problem with Republicans is that if voted in we don't even know if they are Republicans.

Well, first of all, I believe American voters have more common sense than that, except for those most devoted to the Fox/Limbaugh/Beck/Hannity insanity machine.

Of course, knowing that this is the case, the formerly GOP has gerrymandered voting districts in their favor as much as possible in those states with the most right wing extremist governors, and structured elections laws to make it difficult for citizens to vote against them. Due to these unfair practices that directly defy the basic values of American democracy, it is inevitable that some will get elected. However, they're on the wrong side of history, as demonstrated by their flying in the face of the values of the majority of Americans on most issues, and as a result will not enjoy extended tenure in significant numbers.

Simply stated, Americans will not tolerate a one-party dictatorship oligarchy of the wealthiest few and will prevail by voting in everyone's best interest.

Notice you spout the same names all the time. The rest of the 99.9 per cent of the whole broadcast spectrum is progressive. Tina"sluts" Fey became political in a 2008 skit with one sentence that hurt a vice presidential candidate during an election. And she is a pimple on the diseased progressive azz. Let her move back to the "old neighborhood" if she so concerned for others. Of course she won't. She is the rich. Just making sure everyone else pays for the peons. So many examples. We can go on for decades. But tell us the same names.

Even Democrat strategists, like Celinda Lake is admitting the Democrats cannot retain the Senate. At best they can hold Republican to only a 9 seat pick up, and only if they lie about voting for Obamascam. It is amazing how many people are furious about Democrats destroying the Healthcare system, and for what? They can't even say they gave them something better. It is a mess. On the last day to sign up, the system is down. It is a joke. It is Affirmative Action healthcare. You don't expect much from Affirmative Action people.

That means Obama becomes a "TRUE LAME DUCK" president. His agenda will stop dead in its tracks and he will play the victim card. Which is a huge change from "I won ,you lost" "shut up and get in the back" ,"it is my way or the highway" , "I will not negotiate" ,attitude from past years.!! See how many job bills will pass Congress and he will threaten to veto! I hope there will be a 2/3 majority to go over is veto. See if Democrats interested in keeping there job will support the nation and not the party. Are there any of those left?
