He said Republicans are expected to pick up seats from Democrats in 12 to 14 states, but Republicans only need to turn six states to win back the Senate.


And that is why Barrah (black voice affectation) don't know whether to s h i t or go blind.  Although, "there is many a slip, twixt the cup and the lip", we are talking the GOP, Don Knott hands rule the day.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

The question is, does the GOP(establishment) actually want to win. Sometimes I get the impression that they work for the Democrats.
 
I wonder if Soros will invite all the GOPe types to another one of his big Dem conventions. And I wonder how many will show up.

They may want to win but they certainly don't know how to lead...

It is the fissures among the Republicans that will defeat the Republicans, not the Democrats.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Blame becomes tedious to me after a certain point. Too much blame can rob us of living. I tried to convey that to my sons. They seem to have heard.

 The same is so in today's politics. The whining and whimpering does no good once the slate of candidates is set. I hope we figure that out by November.

Most people who vote, don't wallow in political muck 24/7 like forum junkies do.

Based on the amount of time and attention they choose to spend on the election, the just vote and then go on about their business.

Junkies have to fix daily, like a exercise fanatic joneses for endorphins. Gotta live that emotional thing, when worrying about the state of things.

And it is always "the worst ever." Except for those of us who remember the late 60s and early 70s, the draft, the anti-war sentiment, etc. on top of the ever-present fear of nuclear war with the USSR, inflation, gas lines.

Today is mild by comparison. Sure Obama is a scum bag. But he's only got a couple of years left, and chances are good come November we'll trim his wings some more.

Today is a walk in the park. But I'm losing my patience with the fringe deluge, here. Makes this place seem like kooks-ville conspiracy theory nut jobs.

I agree. I do not view today's perils through rose colored glasses or through the lens that "things were worse when...".  My point is that we had better stop dividing ourselves and fracturing along lines of blame. We will not have a perfect line-up of candidates on the first Tuesday in November. My concern is that the outcome will be determined more by our bickering and grievances - and blame - than by the turnout of the left.

Let's smother the Democrats the best we can. Then we get to work with the result.

Me too. Most of the time the best democrat or 3rd party choice, is worse than the worst Republican.

The choices in how they vote are starkly different.

There may be some here who are missing the point. When you have a clear winner in the Republican primary (totally against the will and funding of the GOP), and then the GOP hires and funds the Democrat war-machine to overthrow the will of the people, by calling 'the people' hate mongers who hate Black people, that is a little bit more than infighting, or a conspiarcy. That is just plain actual fact.
 
The GOP funded the overthrow an election, using Democrats, simply because they didn't like the vote.
 
It is unfair to demand that people 'fall in line' with the GOP, when the GOP has open disdain for 'the people'. They are willing to openly subvert elections in the most vicious means ever to get their 'chosen' good-ol-boy elected, then that is sufficient behavior to call into question who they are working for.
 
I may vote GOP as the lesser of two idiots, but they should never delude themselves into thinking that I do not know exactly who and what they are.
 
One day, they will all be gone.
 
Whomever it is, it ani't us. They don't give a damn about us. In so many cases they actually fight against the American people. Again, that is not 'delusion' or conspiracy, that is a fact as plain as the nose on your face.

Indeed, there is nefarious crap going on. No quibble there. But that is not the cause of our "internal" bickering and division.

Of course we want to win.  That is why the GOPe smacked the taste right out of the mouths of the right fringe during the primaries.  When we take 10-12 seats in the Senate the GOPe will have proved they know how to win.  And we will have no obligation to listen to the reckless voices of the defeated.

Sometimes I get the impression the fringe right and fringe left have a lot more in common then they want to admit.

However some of those 10-12, or whatever the count is, will be from the anti-GOPe faction.

There will be winners from both sides of the GOP, and they'll need to unite to thwart Obama's potential to do further harm.

Well...I thought I'd add some intellectual encouragement here, but on both sides of this intra-ideological debate, pretty much everything has been said.  Either getting Harry Reid out of his position as stone wall-in-chief, or lose to principled purity. Personally I'd say to hell with impracticable and unachievable goals (at this pint in time) and settle for stopping this president from at least gaining through legislative machinations.  As a member in good standing of the squishy moderate conservative wing, I say send Harry back to minority leader.  One step at a time.

Who will be from the anti-GOPe faction?  Can you list three?  I'll tell you who is gone next year.  Michele Bachmann, Steve Stockman, and Tom Tancredo.   Those are going to be some big clown shoes to fill.
