    Na..

    We won't lose the House. We could lose some seats yes, but over all will still hold the house.

    Senate is leaning GOP. This is how.

    Montana Senator Max Baucus is retiring. Montana leans very strongly conservative. Supported Romney by almost 10% in '12. Big gun rights state.

    Iowa Tom Harkin is retiring. Iowa is down the middle, but we have a GOP Gov. and congress.

    South Dakota Tim Johnson is retiring. Another super strong GOP state. Went for Romney by almost 20%.

    West Virginia Jay Rockefeller is retiring. Went for Romney by almost 30%.

    That is all the Dems retiring. Ours is Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga. 8% for Romney) and Mike Johanns (R-Neb. 20% Romney). Both likely safe seats.

    Then look at who's at risk. There are;

    Alaska Mark Begich a freshman Senator who squeaked in; he wonít survive a rigorous challenge.

    Louisiana Mary Landrieu supported Obamacare, Gun Control, Immigration reform. All unpopular in her state. Got the medicare deal her state was furious about.

    Minnesota Al Franken, who doesn't believe he's gone? He won as a protest vote against Bush, and only barely. 255 vote difference total.

    North Carolina Kay Hagan. Very very red state. Freshman Senator elected in the wave of protest votes that put others in office like Franken. Supports gay marriage, Gun Control, supporter of Obama.


    All very red states, all high risk to lose.

    Currently the GOP has NO Senate seat that is considered High Risk.

    21 Democrats and 14 Republicans. That is whats up this cycle. We only need 6 to take it.

    Don't forget, no sitting presidentís party has gained Senate seats in the midterm of a second term. Ever!

    I said that we lost interest (in national politics)......I didn't say that we were not going to vote....we vote in every election, even the local ones.

    That he would be. I'm not saying we will have it. But we should make strong gains. Even enough to force the left even if they keep the Senate to make concessions to do any thing, opposed to the dirty dealings now.

    If we get the Senate and keep the House. I could see Pelosi retiring. Her party will have a no confidence vote if that happens and oust her. She won't stick around if she is forced into a small chair, a nobody.

    Problem is there are enough rino's in the senate(even if we take the senate) to allow obama to nominate whatever USSC choice he makes. So we have to hope we get a Republican President after obama our the USSC could move to the left

    I can see what you say, but I still think the Dems will win the House in 2014. I guess we will have to wait and see.

    True this.


    As for Pelosi retiring? That will never happen. She is too much of a power hungry socialist to retire.

    If the dems lose congress she will retire. Hell, youd retire too if you were over 2000 years old ... mummification and botox can only sustain you for so long.

    She no longer uses a plastic surgeon, she has a taxidermist.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Its not just losing Congress for her, for she will just hold on for 2 more years in hope of re-covering it. For her, it must also be the loss of the Speaker-ship. If she is no longer minority speaker, she will have no reason to stay. She'll pout back to her looney district and have some one else appointed to her seat.

    I seriously don't think she will retire. Obama will just bend her over his desk, while Mooch-elle watches, and talk her into staying while he is plugging that whatever you call it. Pelosi would just love that. Have you ever seen the way she looks when she talks about him? I know she drips wet with excitement. She is in love with Obama.
