Democrats Will Take Control of the Senate

Posted on 11/07/2006 10:21:07 PM PST by jern

Looking at the votes still to be counted in MO it is bad news for Talent. He still has half of St. Louis County still to go. MT and VA are toast. 51-49 Democrats

IF i were President Bush I would say, "OK, the American people have spoken and they have voted for a tax increase, they will get what they voted for.. "HIGHER TAXES", across the board and withdraw from Iraq, NEXT TIME they need to understand that voting for Democrats has consequences"

This is a truly disgusting night. Outside of 9-11, I cannot think of a worse day.
I really want to hurt somebody.

Ladies and Gentlemen, break out your checkbooks.... This is coming down to Allen in VA and its going to be ugly all over again. Anyone know if they have or have not counted the overseas military ballots yet? Thats our only hope now. Ironic, the military will have to save our bacon from terrorists and Democrats.

The lawsuits will fly, starting right.... about... NOW!

I know you feel bad. The RINOs are all gone. We lost a good conservative, Santorum. What's left of the GOP is solidly conservative.

I'm so upset, I'm actually ill.

Well .. at least now I can do other things because I surely don't want to listen to the constant smarmy comments of the democrats. They won it - now lets see if they can keep it.

I'm afraid this means we are stuck with an amnesty program - thanks to all those who thought it would be cute to "teach the repubs a lesson". We're the ones who are going to suffer. Great!

I'm outta here!

So much for a conservative SCOTUS appointment in the last two years. I doubt the dem senate would allow any SCOTUS nominee for that manner, unless Bush gets someone from the ACLU.

The thing which worries me most is that a Dem majority in Senate means conservative nominations to the Supreme Court are highly unlikely.

This is going to hurt senoirs, more taxes on s.s. and higher costs for medicare. This is going to hurt all young families with kids, taking away the kids exemption on the income tax, plus tax increases & all the money to pay for s.s. & health care & college for the illegals.

I bet half the people who voted Dem have no idea, they believe what they read in the paper & see in the MSM. Wait til they find out!!

Those DUmmies who want us out of Iraq, will find out Bush was right. The terrorists will come here to kill us. They are in Iraq cause we are, once we're gone, they will be here, all they want is all of us DEAD!

Wow. There is no comparison between today and 9-11. Dems were sloppy, We were a lot sloppier (Allen was up 10 points at one point).

2008 is only 2 years away we can easily recoup and take back the house (and Senate) if necessary.

Today America voted for higher taxes, pro illegal intrusion and weakness in front of the world.

Could the Democrats have been right after all ? Maybe the American people really don't know what's good for them ..

Not necessarily. You got senators such as Nelson from Nebraska that could put a conservative over the top.

Losing is a part of politics. We've been here before. Hopefully, we won't be on the outs for another 40 years.

I'm already through my 3rd bottle of wine! lol

Look, to everyone, this isn't the end of the world. We had a setback. We'll pick up our stuff, get back on our horse, and fight another day. Getting physically ill, or crying, or screaming, isn't going to change anything. What happened happened.

Now, we all need to try and find a way to make this work for our future benefit. That may seem like a tall order tonight, but I assure you that it is possible. All is not lost.

LOL - I would want to say that too, but presidents cannot take the ball and go home. W is lame-duck now, big time. I think he knows he staked everything from 9/11 until today on fighting terrorism the best way he believed. Until tonight it worked and he had faith in the American people that the support would be there. He is probably quite shaken tonight on a personal level but I believe he is strong inside and will still do what he thinks is right. Except now he has no allies (of any power) anywhere. Irony is he cut taxes, help the economy grow to record levels, deposed a dictator, freed two nations, eliminated thousands of terrorists from this world, and put 2 good judges on the court. I suppose he has a legacy coming to him but the present is bleak.

No they voted because they are tired of a perceived arrogant and corrupt party who failed to deliver anything they promised. This was not a vote for Dem's but a vote against the GOP. The average Joe is not a partisan, and when they smell corruption they vote it out, thats how we got power to begin with.

Technically you are incorrect as the most the (D)s can have is 49 seat.

Throw in the honest Socialist & Lieberman then you can get to 51.

The Missouri votes that have yet to be counted are all from the "government cheese" areas -- namely Kansas City and St. Louis proper. Talent is done.

The big thing for Missourians is to watch the Amendment 2 cloning issue.

Another matter is that Dem majorities in the House and Senate mostly likely mean an amnesty for illegal aliens will become reality.

Live to Fight another day. We're bloodied but not beaten. I honestly don't think that this is all that bad for us. Maybe we'll have to struggle again and fight an uphill battle, and remember what we stood for in the first place. Being in power for so long has made too many Republicans squishy where it counts.

Remember what Reagan accomplished. If we can focus our message, concentrate on the positive vision we have for America "The Shining City on the Hill", we will prevail. The Republican party as it stands right now (while better than the alternative) is merely a shadow of what it could be.

Rest up. 2008 is close.
