A competition for the bye week.

A large conservative revolution is predicted. What say you?

Yup, people like the OP don't understand this. They also don't understand that this has very little to do with "conservatism" and very much to do with anti-encumbency and populism.

Well, in 2006 we voted the Republicans out because they spent too much, the lesson the Democrats apparently learned was to spend four times as much. Now we're going to vote the Democrats out because they spent way too much. We'll see if the Republicans actually get it and cut spending, but I have my doubts.

How about a prediction:

87 seat gain in the House
9 seat gain in the Senate

"Conservative?" What is conservative about any of these candidates? The last time the Republicans had control they spent like drunken sailors and collapsed the economy. And now they're conservatives? Okee dokee.

Dems are poised to take it in the shorts, which is getting off easy given what they've brought to the table.

Repubs are poised to gain control of the House, maybe the Senate, which is nothing more than Americans telling them 'we hate you less than the Dems at this point, go out there and try not to lose the game.'

There will be great weeping and gnashing of teeth and a whole lot of noise signifying not much. America is not serious about fixing this regulatory democracy.

It's all relative. The Republicans certainly don't fit my idea of a fiscal conservative, but Obama and the Democratic Congress' approach to spending the last two years have made Republicans look like Libertarians.

The real answer is here:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...s_opinion_main

Voters don't want to be governed from the left, right or center. They want Washington to recognize that Americans want to govern themselves..

Well, in 2006 a lot of Republicans lost, those people are not the same people running this time around.

BTW, the economy tanked in 2008, 2 years into the Democrat congress.

Yeah. I'm sure it will all be different this time.

I'm pretty hopeful on the new crop of the incoming Reps/Senators, what worries me is that they will still empower the same idiots who screwed up before. I don't want any of them to go-along-get-along. We'll see, as I said above, I am doubtful.

A Republican win here points to an Obama 2nd term in two years.

whatever happens in the election - the USA needs to do 3 things:

1. Quit caring about "bi-partisanship". Let the politicians fight until they bleed.....maybe schedule UFC political fights.

2. pass a one paragraph law entitling Americans to go back to politically incorrect speech (aka-ye olde freedom of speech)

3. Limit laws to 2 pages. If it's too long for 2, it gets to be another law - a pork-sausage free republic.

It kills me how the republican candidates are now pissing & moaning about big government spending. It sure as hell wasn't a problem for them during the better part of the last decade when they were ruining, err running ****.

I'm glad O'Donnell isn't going to win. That anti-masturbation law would have been tough.
