© mmxii ittm® Somewhere in Alabama: While I'm at it why not look at the Senate races? Clearly a GOP majority there will be icing on the cake. Without it America runs the risk of stagnation.
So let's have a look. Again I'll preface this piece with the disclaimer that I know no more about the subject than you do. I just choose to voice my opinion.
American Affairs offers a good look at the races in the 2012 Senate.
While I read from this and similar sites I am not "tainted" by their views. I go with my gut. I began my research with a blasphemous Google search.
Funny how Google turns up:
As most informative hits
Where was Al Jazeera? Scroogle! They suck up to Soros.
Any fool can see the Dems are running clear of Baraf Ovomit at warp speed.
23 of the 33 seats up are held by Dems
The GOP needs to retain their 10 and pick up FOUR
The Dems are in trouble with: Florida, Montana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and perhaps West Virginia
The Dems are spending like drunken Sailors (no offense to the you Sailors)
Odds are in favor of the good guys
Missouri - McCaskill is an embarrassment, even to Dems. She's toast!
Montana - They've spent enough on this race to balance the State budget - Denny Rehberg is a TEA Party guy!
Nebraska - Ben Nelson could smell the coffee. He curt and ran. Look for a GOP / TEA Party victory here.
North Dakota - As above!
Virginia - Exit Webb - The bloodbath begins. George Allen should regain his seat w/o TEA Party support.
Wisconsin - Yet another Dem bailing out, this time Herb Kohl (seeing a pattern here?) Feingold knows to stay home. Give it to the good guys!
Nevada - Ah what would a Senate race be without Nevada? - Exit GOP'er (with his pants down) Ensign. The race is a toss up between Heller, who filled the vacant slot of Ensign and Rep. Berkley
Check this transvestite looking chick (Berkley) out!
Mass Of Two $hÏS - The Brown / Lizzie Borden bloodbath. WGAS?
Florida - The Sunshine State loses either way - Incumbent Nelson will spend over $10M to hang on to his seat; Cornelius McGillicuddy the IV will reciprocate in kind.
Ohio - Sherrod Brown will self destruct as Ohio goes solidly GOP
Pennsylvania - I'll let you figure this hat swapping crowd out
West Virginia - I say it's in play with Manchin likely going back in. But then Ovomit could queer the deal!
Open Secrets is an excellent resource.
Even the NYT is forecasting gloom and doom for the Dems:
THE BOTTOM LINE
I see the GOP picking up six seats; good bye HarryRoid!
I think Debbie Stabenow will face a tough fight. Likely against Pete Hoekstra.
Funny, all the boys and girls at DU think they will gain seats in the senate...which would be a hard trick, since 2/3 of the seats up for grabs are current Dem...but they really don’t like to stare reality in the face.
What do you think about CT? I heard that Linda McMahon is running again....and that John Ratzenburger might jump in! I know it’s a heavy Democrat state. And what might happen if a Republican takes the White House as far as the New Administration? I have hear rummors of one of my Senators might be a pic for AG or SecDef(God help us!) Sen. Lindsey Graham(Rino-SC)....So that would be a special election in 2013 I guess
I think CT might surprise especially with the Marxist nuts (aka Dems) running the state. CT isn’t as liberal as MA but I think 2 CD (the 2nd and the 4th) might go Republican along with the Senate.
If Mitt is the nominee, I can hear a huge sucking sound as voters stay home.
The House is reelected every two years, and unless I am six feet under it does not matter who the presidential candidate is I will vote to have somebody represent US. And I cannot wait to vote against my up for election liberal senator Claire.
[And I cannot wait to vote against my up for election liberal senator Claire.]
Who will be running against her do you think? Any polls to show how she matches up?
Anyone of these three would be a vast improvement over Claire.... But BamBamKennedy is still popular in the urban ... (I will hold my peace in describing further.)
So any info on which one of the three is likely to win the primary?
Not yet. To my knowledge I have not heard if any of them have attached themselves to a presidential candidate. That will be key for which one I pick.
