    It's time for a bump. Democrats are running scared and attempting to turn out their base by playing the race card.
    Senator Landrieu says Louisiana is a racist and a sexist state; Charlie Rangel says Republicans want slavery; Georgian Senate candidate Michelle Nunn suggests that white cops will shoot black kids if Republicans win. I find it funny but sad at the same time - funny because panicky, desperate Dems are hilarious but sad because many voters will fall for these tactics.

    I like my earlier prediction of an 8 seat pick-up, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's only 6 seats because Dems cheat and they're very good at cheating.
    I thought Dungeon Master was a jerk for talking in riddles all the time. That's probably why Venger went to the dark side.

    Oh stop with this. There's a ton of shenanigans on both sides, if you care to be fair.

    I can't look at it in black and white terms. At the national level, I'm unhappy because of various things like health care and a flawed foreign policy. So, in my opinion, the Democrats are failing. But on the state level the Republicans are literally thugs and criminals. I have a sign in my front yard for a Democrat running for a seat in the state House. Plus, my sister knows him well. When we vote for him, we know what we'll be getting: an honest hard working person. This is in contrast to his opponent whose cronies in the state legislature have already been arrested for political corruption.

    All is fair in politics. The tactic of using race to incite hatred as a turn-out-the-vote strategy isn't used by Republicans because the Republican base doesn't focus on race or gender identity politics; that only works with Democrats.

    Have you seen these funny clips?

    Joe Biden says Romney/Ryan wants to put black people back in chains; hilarious stuff


    Hillary speaks with an African American dialect. This one is almost painful to watch:

    @sorenx7 It's not black and white or right and left; it's up or down (I'm borrowing from Ronaldus Magnus). Sure there are lots of lousy Republicans (like Charlie Crist and the late Arlen Specter), but the type of devestation on the nation can only be accomplished by a Democrat.

    Please note that I said I thought the Democrats had failed at the national level. The foreign policy failures alone are monumental. Yet when I look at what the Republicans have done here at the state level, I am literally horrified. I'm not making this stuff up, either. I'm seeing it up close and personal.

    I predict you'll get a B- average across the board because your math and biology test scores will improve dramatically.

    It is nothing new that the party of a president in his second term stands to lose the midterm. With an election lacking any dominant theme - except to distance oneself from Obama, regardless of affiliation - most candidates are busy trying to beat each other in who can come up with the most ridiculous election videos, as is the American way.
    ‘Many novelties have come from America. The most startling of these, a thing without precedent, is a mass of undignified poor. They do not love one another because they do not love themselves.’

    ‘And we will have made great strides in equality,
    when few have too much and fewer too little.’.

    Republicans take the senate majority.

    Wait that's not a prediction thats FACT.
    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.

    Of course. Some CEOs make 300 times more than their employees, and some CEOs make 1,000 times more than their employees.
