It's 46D-43R right now, and these are the tossups. It was 47D-43R, but even RCP concedes that OH is now a tossup.

It is important that Ryan keep up the pressure against Vice President Hairplugs in the coming debate. Some might say it's only the VP slot, but it's really a battle of ideologies.

We need the Senate to advance the Right agenda.

A recent poll showed Mandel (R) leading 46 over Brown (D) with 41% in Ohio

Pretty sure Sherrod "I'm a Nimrod" Brown (D - out of Cleveland) will loose ... based on the Republican increases throughout the state and Rat voter registration losses especially in Cleveland and throughout the state in Absentee Ballot numbers.

Three more debates like the last one would almost certainly produce some coat tails. The more R the Senate the better. RINOs can be lead by the nose if you’ve got momentum and a winning hand. And a really big win this year will put fear into large bunch of Rats there up in 2014. The easier to get to 60 votes the better.

I am usually reserved in my political prognostications, but for 18 months I have said to my wife and grown children and close friends that I am as sure as one can be that Obama would lose this election. And as sure as I was that long ago, I have only become more certain over time.

I know that this level of confidence is foolish, but there it is. I have tried to look at the data and the unfolding of events and be more reasonable, and to anyone other than my closest family/friends I have been confident but guarded. But I have become ever more convinced. And it’s not just a gut feeling. It really is based on what I read and see and hear.

Anyway, recent events have not simply validated what I have long felt. Rather they suggest to me that this could be the greatest shellacking in electoral history. Among the many reasons:

* Dems across the board are trapped. Now that the poop has hit the fan, finally, it’s too late to walk back from the egregiously hard lines they have taken for 4 years, and that with all of the recent hubris have actually hardened. The are all stuck taking what now are transparently obviously bad positions on a wide range of issues; and they have no choice but to stand by a president who looks to be melting down.

* The MSM are not trapped, and will do all that they can to be the first in the life boats to get off the Titanic. Bill Maher is talking about BO using weed. David Brooks is in the NYTimes today with a piece on drafting Hillary Clinton in 2016! The list goes on. These smarmy know-nothings do not want to be the last ones off of a sinking ship. Watch them turn!

* Even the biased polls show markedly less enthusiasm recently for “divided government.” Voters for decades have thought it would be wise to have D’s hold one branch of government and R’s to hold the other. But that has been a disaster for awhile now, and voters no longer believe it. If Romney’s lead grows, I believe that we’ll have even more than the usual coattails down the rest of the ticket.

* America’s adversaries around the world do not overlook opportunities to make the US look bad, and this is their best chance for years to come. I predict more embarrassments in the coming weeks.

I could go on. Now ... maybe Biden won’t be as bad tonight as I anticipate. Maybe BO will find a way not to have a second and third debate as bad as the first. Maybe there is too little time left for Putin or the Pakistanis or Iran to p*ss on the US again. On the other hand, ...
