Mixed results tonight with Mittflop, Santorum and Gingrich winning some states ensures the comedy tour of buffoons should continue. Priceless

Childish name calling won't change these facts: It appears Romney will win. Once he does, every GOPer will rally behind him. When it comes down to voting for Romney or 4 more years of Obama, only the far left and blacks will stick with Obama. All the polls have the Independent vote swinging toward Romney and no one can win the presidency without the Independent voters. Hanging over Obama are 12 million unemployed people, high gas prices, foreclosure rates, hundreds of billions lost in "green" jobs that didn't pan out, Catholic voters, keystone pipeline, lack of domestic drilling, ObamaCare and many other issues.

After more than 3 years in office, "inherited" doesn't cut it any more and claiming to have pulled the trigger on bin Laden is just silly.

According to you, only the far left and "blacks" voted for Obama in the first place. That ignores women, the young, Hispanics, the moderate left, independents and some Republicans. What polls do you claim show independents swinging toward Romney? Obama has a clear lead, approximately the same spread as he had against McCain. You don't care about facts. If you did, you would have looked them up and cited them, like I did.

That Obama inherited the worst economic situation since the Great Depression, including major structural problems that cannot be corrected in four years, isn't an excuse but a fact. Childish, knee-jerk reactions won't solve our country's problems, which are a product of decades of neglect, characterized mainly by the country's shift to the right since Reagan took office. We forgot the lessons our parents and grandparents learned the hard way during the Great Depression, and adopted policies that led to the same conditions: deregulation of banking and finance, which led to speculation, along with false prosperities and unearned wealth. These factors caused income and wealth redistribution toward a few people who leveraged the system for their own private gain, causing 99% of us to fall behind. This was government picking winners and losers, and redistributing income, through laws that favored a few people on top. And it wasn't the people who were producing things or creating jobs in the USA who got the benefits: it was speculators, who destabilized our economy and sent American jobs overseas. So when the right wing complains about attempts to restore a sustainable balance in the distribution of wealth, they are being complete hypocrites, manipulating gullible people like you who don't understand what they've done and are continuing to do.

And if you want to talk about domestic oil production, it fell under Bush and has risen under Obama. Yet again, your claims are completely opposite from the facts.

Now you want to elect someone who epitomizes the worst and most dangerous elements of right wing philosophy. Romney was an executive in a hedge fund company. He thinks that the auto industry should have been allowed to collapse. He has a history of closing down companies and putting people out of work. He thinks government should do nothing to keep people from losing their homes. His philosophy when the economy goes bad is to let it happen. Eventually an equilibrium will be reached and everything will be fine - from his perspective, it will, because the wealthy can afford to ride out the storm. But that ignores the millions of people who will suffer if it happens that way. Romney doesn't care. He thinks that if a few people have a lot of wealth, they'll share it with the rest of us. He doesn't understand what it's like to live modestly, let alone from paycheck to paycheck. And he doesn't care about our long-term future because all he thinks about is the corporate bottom line in the short term. If we elect him, we will put off development of new energy technologies yet again - we're already forty years behind where we should be. If you think Romney is the answer to our problems, you're crazy.

I hate to burst your Kool-Aid bubble but the GOP is favored to take back the Senate as well as keeping the House. If that happens zerO is finished even if he

does manage to con enough people into re electing him. Without his government checkbook he'll be harmless.

You're not bursting any bubbles. The Republicans could win everything this year but if they do, we'll be right back in the same situation that caused the problem in the first place. And if Obama wins but the Democrats lose the Senate and the House, nothing will get done.

You may not like it but without the government and its checkbook, the unemployment rate would be well over 10%, if not in the 20s. It's easy to blame government for everything that goes wrong - until people want an answer, then they expect government to fix the problems. You can't have it both ways. That doesn't mean that the people always think these things through.

They were in articles from last year. Not so much now. They SHOULD be heavily favored-the Democrats have 23 seats up for grabs while the Republicans only have 10, and most of the Democrat seats are in swing states that flipped in 2006-but with a Brown victory looking less and less certain and Snowe's retirement it certainly isn't as certain as it should be. The Republicans have a steep hill to climb. They certainly could do it, especially if the economy sputters between now and then, but it is far from certain. They will likely lose some House seats, but it will stay Republican for now. Barring some unforeseen disaster that humiliates Obama, if Republicans do win the Senate you can expect them to lose big in 2014 though so you should probably be hoping for things to remain where they are.

Remain where they are?? Let's see, 4 more years of zerO would put the debt at about 24 trillion. That spells bankruptcy
