My bet is another F curve

That's my expectation as well. I suspect that the odds of ever having a republican,  let alone a conservative majority in either the house or the senate are getting pretty slim.  No consequences for blatant election fraud undoubtedly leads to even more fraud.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

ABC News said the dems will keep the house and gain up to 4 seats in the senate.
But then deleted the tweet for some reason

https://twitchy.com/samj-3930/2022/06/19/what-sort-of-fckery-is-this-abc-news-busted-deleting-tweet-claiming-democrats-will-hold-onto-the-house-and-take-4-seats-in-the-senate/

The article in question (also linked by twitchy.com):

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/bidens-optimism-collides-mounting-political-challenges-85480788?cid=social_twitter_abcn

I wouldn't go all  [tinfoil] just yet.  It appears to be an unfinished article (which would explain why the tweet got deleted), and the first paragraph could be what Biden is predicting for the midterms.

If the Democrats don't lose a bunch of seats in congress coming up soon, I predict they will do much much worse during the presidential election.  I don't think things are going to improve much.

Not that it can be controlled, but in many ways, it would be better to have a "red wave" in 2024 rather than now. Usually what seems to happen is that a midterm red (or blue) wave comes in, then it is moderated with a new president stuck with a majority from the opposite party after the following presidential election.

Though we do often make the argument here that gridlock is the best option.  =)

I've been seeing that. They seem to be selling it as the young, hip, Kennedy-like pretty boy. I really don't know what dems nationally (like a NY or FL or TX dem voter) think of him.

And yow, this is a new level of desperate entirely!

Media Pundits -- Don't let gas prices or inflation influence your vote in November! That would be wrong! WRONGGGGGGGG!

https://www.foxnews.com/media/msnbc-wapo-abc-figures-warn-voters-against-gas-prices-influencing-vote-november

You have GOT to be kidding me!

""The president does not have some super-secret special dial on his desk that can adjust gas prices, but many voters believe otherwise," (WaPO columninst) wrote."

I guess that "I'm going to stop the Federal gas tax dial" isn't such a big secret then!  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


She completely forgets.... no, she's completely ignoring the inconvenient truth that St. Barak, First of His Name, the Glorious Obama, once told us with gravitas and certainty "You can't drill your way to lower prices!"

And yet, that's EXACTLY what America did.

And, as I have repeatedly said over the past 2 years, Biden is on a mission to PUNISH the United States for having the temerity to prove St. Barak 100% wrong...

And that's what these idiots don't want us to see.

IMO, the President does not have a "gas price dial".  IMO, it is more like an economic brake or road block on the energy market.  The executive branch controls permits for oil leases, oil drilling, and all sort of other environmental restrictions and distribution restrictions.  All the President has to do is take his foot off the brake and let the market move freely.

Really makes me wonder what sort of tune these pundits would be signing if it were a Republican in office in similar economic times...

Oh, silly me, we ALL know what the tune would be...

VOTE THE RACIST, FASCIST BASTARD OUT! HE'S CRUSHING YOUR ECONOMIC HOPES AND DREAMS! IT'S HIS FAULT, PERSONALLY!

No real mystery there.

High gas prices benefit crony capitalists while impoverishing underserved communities of color. Vote D for an equitable energy market pan for all.

That’s about how it would go.

^^^ Yeah, well.  Once she is elected her tune will change yet again.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Sorry, I should have said "re-elected".

More loving and tolerant Democrats. I'm surprised they didn't bring another shooter with them this year. Just so they could blame Republicans for not passing gun control.

In the last few years (or maybe decade) I've seen the rise of what I call "The View women". They all portray themselves as "strong, smart, beautiful women who are all that ("you want to date us!")", who are actually a herd of stupid, fat, waddling cows with an IQ of 74 in their head and a 5lb box of bonbons in their hands.

Linda Sanchez is one of their star players.

And the desperation continues, with less than half of Hispanic Americans now backing the Dem Party.

The guy he's interviewing wrote the book that popularized the Democrats' Great Replacement Theory, back when they thought Obama was at the vanguard of a permanent, left-wing majority of color. They thought brown people couldn't think for themselves.

There is no way she has significant daily contact with anyone but other Democrats.  I didn't know that was a common policy position with Democrats.
