FOXNEWS just called West Virginia Senate for Manchin

Republicans will not reach 51 and take the Senate. 49 seems the most likely outcome now.

Very sad IMO, because now Ginsberg will have the opportunity to resign in 2012 (or earlier) and Obama will get his pick, whoever it is.

Pray that a conservative justice does not fall ill or die. We were ONE VOTE away from being stripped of our 2nd amendment rights.

I cant see myself ever voting for a Liberal, but with the exception of the tax cuts, Bush, was far from Conservative. And what did Obama do? Took every one of Bush's policies and continued or expanded them. In addition, he gave us nationalized health care...

The Republicans enacted the policies, the Dems are continuing them, to whom does one turn?

Under Bush we had:

First banker bail out.
Near doubling of the national debt from $5.6 Trillion in 2000 to $10 Trillion in 2008.
The wars.
NSL's
Domestic spying.
Warrant-less wiretapping.
Warrant-less sneak and peak searches.
Establishment of "free speech zones".
Torture.
Suspension of the Geneva Conventions.
Secret renditions.
Suspension of habeas corpus, holding people indefinitely, incommunicado, without being charged for any crimes...



That having been said, RAND PAUL MOFOOOOOOOOOOOOSSS!!!! F YOUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The winners always believe.

And then there's 2000, when the winner was ousted in a coup.

Lincoln goes away, and we gain Rand Paul and Marco Rubio.

That alone makes the whole day worth it.

Closing in on perfect government for gridlock - big R majority in House, balanced Senate, D in White House. Two years of arguing and posturing, very little in the way of scary, BOHICA laws.

Wrong. SCOTUS prevented the liberal Florida Court from being able to rewrite the law post-election to help Gore steal it.

Furthermore, 2 post-election recounts of the ballots by liberal rags, one following state law AND one following the Florida court's ruling, both gave Bush INCREASED victories in Florida.

And, had there been a controversy at the electoral college between Kathleen Harris' certified vote tally and one put forth by the Democrats, the vote on which vote tally to accept would have gone to each chamber of congress by law, requiring each to pick the same tally for it to go through. Republicans controlled the house and would have voted for Harris's certification. Al Gore would have been the tie-breaking vote in the Senate, and obviously would pick the other tally. Since each chamber would NOT have picked the same tally, by law the next step would be a combined vote of both chambers. House is larger than the Senate, Republicans had the house, ultimately Kathleen Harris's tally would be accepted.

The way things went, Bush won.
Following state law, Bush wins.
Following the Florida Supreme Court, Bush wins.
Following U.S. law governing disputes over certified results, Bush wins.

Bush won the election. Bush, in REALITY, won more votes in Florida. Bush would have been the winner no matter which way SCOTUS ruled.

But thanks for showing your insanity again.

Nothing you said is relevant to a liberal. They don't care about law or procedures. They think they are superior and therefore have an inherent right to rule. If they are denied that then it is because some #?*! stole it.

Will be interesting to see how that plays out.

I haven't seen any numbers yet on governors, but it looks like quite a few have R behind their name.
