“Democrats, in charge of the White House, The Senate, and the House of Representatives, introduce their 2010 midterm strategy: Point at Republicans and say "it's their fault"
“Can we get this trash deleted?
There's a bunch of Democrat Hating threads already, stove could have recycled any one of those.”
“Poor little troll needs attention”
“So that's why you started this thread.
“The troll must be a Moonbat Democrat.
“lol. Remember that when you get that nice little white screen yourself.
It's only a matter of time.
“No, very relevant.
You just wait and see.
“Please go red plus some other thread, troll.”
“I thought he was going back to take a class in shovelling horse #&%!$.”
“There goes that TT naughty word censor again.”
“Anybody up for a friendly wager about the results of the midterms and which party ends up controlling which house?”
“Ever since the 30's, the party in power loses the House, along with a handful + of seats in the Senate.
What odds is house giving?”
11 Reasons to vote for Democrats in November ”
“Moonbat Rep. Hank Johnsonís fear of the island of Guam tipping over due to overpopulation stands in a class all by itself.”
“What state was he from again?
“Must be Mississippi.
Horse#&%!$ maneuvering is a Master's level program at Mississippi State.
“BARK, moonbats, BARK.
Rep. Hank Johnson is from Georgia.”
So we agree that the Senate isn't really in play.
I'd bet with even odds that the Dems retain a narrow majority in the House.
What's your wager?”
“I don't think the Senate is in play. The Dems should loose at least a couple of seats; but since the Republicans are having a hard time forming their message, the Dems may buck the historical trend.
Based upon historical trends, I fully expect the House to go back to the Republicans.
Betting? lol. You've been around here long enough to know how I always come out on bets. Is that why you're offering? lol.
Sure, I have no idea what could be in the pot, but I'm usually up for a bet; even if it's against my best interest.
Even odds, I'm good with that. Any ideas about what the wager should be?”
“Based upon historical trends ...
How about based on the Tea Party is making waves across America and the libs are going
“lol! Of course the Tea Party would take credit for something that has historically happened.
“Who cares, nothing meaningful will happen either way, the corps will just have paid whomever gets elected more than the last puppet and the pay back will be more Biz favorable laws.”
Well there's your problem....
“THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FACING AMERICA

There is no doubt that the absolute #1 issue on people's minds right now is the economy ... and, as we've just pointed out ... that little issue of jobs. That was a gimme. But what rates after that in terms of the problems facing our countries? A recent Gallup poll found that Americans now believe that government and politicians are bigger problems for the country than illegal immigration, health care, disaster response or even the federal debt.
They're right. Politicians. Government. These people are the problem .. they are not the solution, nor, for the most part, do they have the solutions. The problem is that these politicians have the executive power of government to enforce their "policies" and "solutions" on the people. And it takes a really large, huge ego to even run for office, let alone serve in Washington. So these big egos are going to use their precious government police power to implement policies that will get THEM the credit for trying to create jobs. Their egos are so overblown that they find it impossible to believe that someone else out there - an entrepreneur, a business owner, an investor - could do a better job of creating job than them .. after all, they were elected by the people to go to Washington and solve their problems! But that leads back to the Gallup poll .. these politicians are so full of themselves that they can't even realize that THEY are the problem. They are so set on being the ones to get the credit for saving this economy that they are willing to let businesses and worker suffer, just so they can say they tried. If they succeeded, that would be great. But they aren't. So move over, get out of the way and let the private sector do what the private sector does best!”
“somebody nixed the snicker
If the Republicans take the House I have to uncheck fuego for a month.
If the Dems retain control, you have to start a different admiration thread for Sarge every day for a month - and it has to appear sincere.”
“lol. While tempting, that's no good. Ped the Moderator has already said on this site that he would immediately vote to ban someone for posting threads similar to that, and I'm sure he isn't alone. I wouldn't want to take the chance over a fun bet.
We could just make it "unchecking" fuego for a month for both, and the loser has to post on this website a detailed trip report of their best trip.”
“It'll be a bloodbath for the progressive communists Democrats....”
“The gov is not the solution, but as always they don't have a clue of what the solution is themselves. Pure; Rush, Becky, Neil, Kudlow -never one solution, only blame the gov. Year after year their only solution is tax breaks and all have seen how well that's works just until the money collects in the hands of a few and they won't let go.”
“Sadly...regardless of who controls the house and senate...nothing much will change. Both parties are bereft of leadership.”
