The problem is, you've got wild socialists running one party. I wish I was wrong, but watch and see, dems will only obstruct. They won't work with Republicans. Their idea of compromise is 90% what they want and 10% what the other side wants.


But that also describes republicans with a democratic president. Do you remember Obama. Congress did nothing but obstruct him.

That's about the size of it.

He needs to put out his hand, not his fault if they bite it.

It's there to be done. All that needs to happen, all he says, is for ideological blinders to be taken off, and actually sit down and talk like adults.

But... That's bucking long odds, indeed.

Well...

In his defense, it would come out rather badly if he said something to the effect of "I'd actually prefer anyone but Pelosi as speaker, say someone like Gabbard..."

You know how well that would go over. It'd be tantamount to a declaration of war. Not good, imho.

First and foremost, I wish all people elected the best, and hope they do great for the country, though my gut tells me most on both sides will suck as usual.


I think so too Gram


I get that us anonymous posters online made all sorts of crazy predictions, and it will be fun to see if anyone eats crow.


The present scenario seemed most likely to me too, but I went ahead and made an optimistic prediction. Plenty of crow left to eat here


I hope the Dems will use their new power to unite the country and compromise with the Senate/WH in order to make government work for Americans. I doubt they will. But we can hope!

So there was no wave of any color, so it looks like no surfing for us.


Small wave in the governors race. 7 dem flips to 0 repub flips.

But yes I agree it is now purple.

They way I like it.

I wouldn't call it a wave ether (except the governors races) but if you look at this map here:
www.bloomberg.com...

The house map looks like a red country just got filled in with a bunch of large blue lakes. lol



Personally I would rather see purple then all blue or all red.

Does the absence of either wave imply that voters are distinguishing between Trump and the Republican party?
The result being that thinking Trump is wonderful doesn't necessarily translate into a Republican vote, and thinking Trump is horrible doesn't necessarily translate into a Democrat vote. The Trump issue was simply irrelevant.

Pretty much.

That, and/or, people like myself find the idea of a split Congress appealing. I do not like the idea of one party, irregardless of which, having control of legislative branch, executive branch, and, though it's not supposed to be partisan, judicial.

That's not true at all. That describes Republicans with a socialist president. The Republicans worked well enough with Bill Clinton.

Yeah, but they didn't work with Obama at all, all they did was obstruct him. Did they even get anything done? Not really.

You call obama a Socialist, but He really wasn't that much different than Bill with his policies. What was the difference?

Hell, are there any major Bush-era policies he didn't continue?

I think people are tired of lunatic fringe politics. It would be good to have a return to moderates. Its been pretty tumultuous
these past couple years. Its time for progress instead of arguing. Lets hope that happens.
