It’d be hard for me to bet against that.

Odds for Obama completing his first term?

0bama is going to have a very unpleasant evening of Nov. 2 and morning of Nov. 3. His destructive narcissistic behavior will really kick in then.

I was going to buy share in this when the odds of a GOP takeover were at 5 points. But, I was broke. :)

That’s why he’s skipping town for 12 days in India.

Someone change the locks while he’s out.

Which is why he's leaving the country that evening. He can run..... but he can't hide.

The two months after the election, well, after he gets back from his two week vacation after the election is going to be a race to see how much they can destroy in as little time as possible.

If they try a bunch of crap in their lame duck session,
there’ll be guillotines rolling up Penn Ave.

NB—If I read the contract details correctly, Sanders and Lieberman do not count toward the 50 required to maintain control, and if their support is needed, the result U.S. Senate Neither would be the winning contract. If people read the fine print, I’d think that this would be much higher than it is, and the Dem control much lower.

Would love to see the doors to the Oval office kicked in and a group of Senators, governors and conerned citizens read him a new declaration of independence from his tyranny.

Too French. Give me good old American rope and a lamp post.

But seriously it will all come down to DE, IL and WV. Those are replacement seats so they don't have to wait until Jan 3 for the new senators to take the seat. It looks like we will pick up IL and WV so that alone will limit how much trouble the Dem's can get into.

Filibuster everything until Jan 3.

I am hoping after the win and while he is a gone - the US intel community and the Pentagon brass will drop his real BC or evidence he is an usurper on the US public.

It is just a dream. My guess is the chicks*it brass and intel community is too cowardly.

It would be a good start.

Imagine the courage our forefathers had to have to do what they did to declare independence from Brittain.

We need leaders of similar courage now.

Bid 4.0 Ask 5.5 Dumbo Gone by Dec 2011

Same odds as the GOP retaking the house when he was elected.

There is hope, eh?

The word among the tinfoil crowd is that 0bama’s past is totally made up by our own intel community.

I always ask “to what end”, because I can see no sense in it.

What they’d REALLY be afraid of would be the massive “social unrest” that would follow the removal of “the first black president”.

WOW, I’m not sure if I hope they are right or not. Remember what happened when the GOP took them when Clinton was in the WH. He blamed everything bad on the Republicans and therefore got a 2nd term. We need the Marxist Kenyan out! If losing the Senate this fall helps do that, so be it. Don’t forget, even if we had the majority, the Maine twins will always be there to cross over and help when needed.

I wouldn’t be surprised — outraged, but not surprised — if the Maine Twins switch to Dem after the election.

If the GOP wins the Senate, they would be crazy to do that.

Actually, I doubt either one will switch. The election is going to send a message that the voters want conservatism. Moving to the left is the last thing any politician will want to do.

I am for arming our newly elected class of conservative congressmen and woman with pitchforks and torches.

Imagine what a fool he’d look like addressing both chambers empty-handed. It might just throw him off his teleprompter. He might just be taken aback enough to consider that the American people might be serious outside his little bubble.

I’d love to see that moment on C-SPAN.

“Whoa?! What’s with all the pitforks and torches, people?”

“GRRRRR!!”

You need to be careful with Iowa Electronic Market, also. I think it is their intent to treat a Murkowski win in Alaska as if it were a Democrat win. Now that may not happen; but knowing how the counting will be done is vital in these political markets.
