It is my birthday today, so I get to post the live thread. :)
Some places to watch:
Politico SenateReal Clear Politics
The Dems has every advantage and this is all they came up with.
I keep telling people, the kids are gonna be alright.
McCaskill took the worst @ss whipping of the night.
Wallace is hysterical to watch when you consider how much he detests Trump and tries so hard to hide that. I like watching him squirm and divert, twist and avoid, whats obvious to everyone!
Its not conservatives fighting RINOs, its RINOs fighting conservatives. They are the ones who betray us, they are the reason we don’t stand as a voting bloc.
They are the reason we lose elections, the establishment.
Right on, right on, right on.
6%? The Texas general elections site has it down to 3.5% with Beto almost at 48%. That’s disturbing.
3 unless Bratt pulls it out via the absentee vote. 435 congressmen; our 216 would leave the Dems 219. The Dems won’t get anything done with that kind of “majority” and look for infighting within that congress...the Occasios will want communism fast and hard and the Congessional Republicans can sit back and not support the Dems in their schemes and let the Dems flail against a balking Senate.
Somebody mentioned a “Pyrrhic’ victory for the Dems...they may well be right.
mitigating losses mean you still lose $$$$ belongs to the house
Now he can fire Sessions.
She will. Trump will run rings around her.
THANK YOU BIG. It’s frustrating feeling like a non-person on such a thread. LOL.
Maybe these are just sour grapes, but its not like Trump and Republicans had this great legislative agenda for the next two years anyway. There was talk about entitlements reform, but we all know that was never going to happenTrump has shown no appetite for it, and they couldnt even repeal Obamacare with control of both houses when that was a unanimous Republican position just a few years ago.
Democrats cant pass any of their agenda without the Senate or White House, and Trump doesnt need the House to continue cutting regulations and appointing conservative judges. This probably doesnt change much policy-wise.
I’m with you, I don’t understand all the histrionics either. Usually midterms are much more of a blood bath for the party of the sitting president. I can only hope that Nancy gets speaker, she is such a blathering fool these days it will be a laugh a minute.
Righteous! Thank you for raising them Right.
Cruz has been declared the winner.
“I was skeptical when Fox called it AGES AGO when dems had only taken 2 seats off us.
But I gave up some time ago. Its BAD. Rats could top 230.”
Yep. The MSM was right. Numerous FReepers were wrong. The Dems now have control of the House and they WILL impeach Trump. Sure he won’t be convicted in the Senate but Trump will join Johnson and Clinton in the history books as an impeached President. Plus — none of Trump’s agenda will get passed. Not a good night.
