They better sharpen their pencils if they even THINK they have a chance.
Gee! And yeah, they did so well in the 2012 elections!
Gonna need more than math.
They’re going to need a positive message and actual plan for American restoration.
stupid party wishful thinking is not mathmatics.
has the gop had any math problem correct?
Dole, Mccain, Romney?
Republican majority or not. The GOPe Senate largely suffers from a fatal case of appeasing, backstabbing, lying, sniveling, deranged, snakebelly betrayal to conservative Americans. Without a strong Conservative leader, either in the Senate, or in the White House, these country club Senators will continue to sell us down the river for a dinner party invitation with media a$$holes, meetings with the opposition, and the power they still have to feather their own corrupt nests.
Yeah, that’s what they said the last time. And every one of the establishment nominees went down in flames.
Although, this class of seats is a good one. This is the same class where the republicans held their ground in the Clinton reelection, and took back the senate from the democrats in 2002 after Jim Jeffords betrayal. The 2008 tide was a well-funded fluke. Most of the seats either have freshmen or retirements.
The keys to a senate majority will be good candidates defeating moderate establishent nominees. Oh, and for an actual majority, we need to defeat Lindsey Graham. And getting rid of Collins, McConnell, Corny, Enzi and Alexander in primaries would be nice too!
—don’t count your chickens before they hatch-—
A Republican Senate majority. So What! The Republicans don’t know how to use a majority. And if they should gain the majority they would be embarrassed and apologetic about it and trip over themselves trying to please Obama and his Democrats — not to mention the Democrat News Media in America. And then there are RINOS — Democrat Party collaborators among them. Nothing much would get done.
A five vote pickup would lead to a 50/50 tie that would be broken with a Biden vote for the Dems. Based on past performance (2012) this looks like a tall hill to climb. But, as always, fingers crossed.
Keep in mind GWB was president and had majorities in both the HOR and US Senate. He started a lot of the initiatives that Obama followed through on during that time.
We really are dependent on a conservative HOR inspiring Senate conservatives.
The Republicans need to revisit their analysis. The immigration reform fiasco is having the same effect as the McCain nomination and the disastrous Romney scorched earth primary campaign - too many conservative voters are more than happy to sit out the election rather than tacitly supporting the lesser of two evils.
In the long run, that’s what the establishment wants. It allows them to retain control of the party. It’s the country that suffers as a result. Thank you Karl Rove.
What would they even do with it if they had it?
Whatever. They will have idiots like Murkowski and McCain and Graham and Collins who vote with Democrats...so what use is it to have more Rs than Ds if so many of the Rs are just Ds in disguise?
They thought Romney would win.
Who cares. I hope the whole thing implodes! Better yet, let’s just get Jeb Bush’s advice on this, after all, that’s who they plan on seating as the next POTUS with or without the peoples vote. Haven’t we learned anything since 2012 election? Unless there is a revolution, it will never be resolved, and even a revolt won’t really solve it, it will just set up another situation for greedy power mongers to set themselves up to be the next set of idiots.
Look at my post dates, it’s been a long time, because it’s out of our control.
It all depends on how many get off their lazy a$$ and vote.
The last two elections prove that.
Unless the majority is made up of Ted Cruz clones, it’s no improvement.
