Except for the fact that the other democrats have less than 40% approval ratings, and independents are pissed at them too. Republicans are outraged, and IMO the Dimocrats are foisting this on the American Public, leaving or retiring, and living off the Congressional and Senate Sweetheart health care system for the rest of their lives, at the taxpayers expense.
Now if we could just force ALL retirees and current Senators and Congressmen to live under the same healthcare bill....now, that would be something.

But, it will never happen...

but I disagree with you about Virginia. IIRC, even Democrats thought that Creigh Deeds was a loser candidate “

Nope
You'd better check the graph of the polls at RTealClearPolitics. At one time, Deeds had caught up with McDonnell in the polls, and the Washington Post and the Democratic Party Establishment went after McDonnell when they leaked his university thesis. They tried to “macaca” McDonnell and went after McDonnell with everything they had..and still lost by a massive 18%!
The “D” after your name makes you the target of angry voters. No amount of switching candidates is gong to save them.

I think Blumenthal (sp) D will replace Dodd. The other dyed and true D States will reelect by votes or fraud another D.

Again, rearranging the deck chairs. With this new National ID, dissenters will never have a chance at voting anyone out. Yes, I'm depressed!

bet these are the same Freepers who kept insisting that Christie would never be able to beat Corzine in New Jersey, because “New Jersey will never vote for a Republican” and The Democrats will “bring in ACORN, SEIU blah blah to steal the election”. They kept insisting that Corzine could win right onto polling day, even when it had become clear that Christie had won. Personally, I think there are Democratic Party 5th columnists at FR, who's business it is to be “realistic” by constantly postulating that the Republican's can't win in such and such elections. You gotta take such posts with a great deal of skepticism.

Very true.

How’s she going to get them elected? What will they run on? The economy? Job growth? Success in the war?

Good theory, but most of these old legacy farts are leaving because they aren’t going to put the effort into running a losing campaign.

You have to take a lot of crap in a campaign. Why do it if you are pretty sure you’re going to lose?

Worse, what if you win? You want to be there for the next six years of THIS?

Excuse me Mr/Mrs new fresh face rat, when we introduce a bill to repeal the current Health Care law (assuming it will be), will you vote to repeal the law or not. How about Cap and Trade, how about extending the Bush tax cut. Oh, you won't, just like Reid and Pelosi direct. Interesting you rat bastar.....

I did not call you anything. I was meaning this is what we should say to the new Dems that run in place of the retiring Dems. I am sorry for the misunderstanding. I should have used quotes and been more clear.

We had better start to close the primaries in all of the states we possibly can. They often attempt to control our elections by crossing over. Thats why we have been getting so many candidates that play right into their hands.

When Republicans win by a few points or a little more in all actuallity they may have won by closer to a land slide. It is possible that we would be surprised at what the numbers without the corruption and cheating.
