I hope you Dems get used to seeing these reults....GOP candidates across the board will begin pulling away from the Dems....until which time the Dems move back to the center and away fro mthe far left agenda.

Aren't you always preaching about how the economy is the driving factor in elections? As in, "the democrats only won because the economy was bad"?

So shouldn't that lesson also apply here: in a (still) bad economy, the incumbent party will suffer? Seems a lot more logical than your claims about some non-existent far left agenda.

Based on the organization doing the poll, I am not surprised; I was expecting the Rep to he ahead by 20 points. The Dems can prevent 1994 again, and if they can't close the health care deal than I think we are headed towards long term anarchy. The third world here we come.

Well, if they run with their tail in between their legs (which it seems they are doing now in the house), it will be a disaster in November.

They have to stand up and not be cowards, but that is asking a lot of the Democratic caucus.

Now we dems should be ready for a repub sweep because we failed to govern with 60 filibuster proof majority. We're now ready for tea party country. We're doom for the forseeeable future. The paty that got us into this mess will be rewarded and this country will sink into the amiss.

Yeah that just gets me IdahoMulato. Americans have memories of 2 year olds to go back to the failed policies that got us in this meltdown to begin with. Americans rather be miserable than listen to smear campaigns about tax & spend liberals. Well frankly, America deserves what it gets now. There'll be no hope and change with a Republican party that is clinging to failed economic Reganesque policies of yesteryear.

Hey, I hope you guys don't listen to me....I hope you keep on cruising with the far left crap....it will just further marginalize your party and you will cotninue losing elections....even in blue areas like MA where you thoguht you would never lose....so please don't listen to me....keep pushing left...that is the ebst strategy the GOP could dream of!

Hey, America. Is there such a thing as amnhesia? Remember Iraq everybody? Remember no weapons of Mass Destruction everyone? Remember days before the election when Tom Ridge elevated our terror levels just to scare people into re-electing Bush? Remember the response to Katrina? It took 6 years before people voted the GOP out of power before. I think a majority of Americans are so stupid, that Mccain bombing Iran would have been caused less of an uproar than Obama trying to pass health reform and eventually universal care. About 50 other nations have universal health care or something close to that. In America, it is viewed as tyranny.

So Repubs you don't like Obama care. What other plan did you ever come out with to cover all Americans, cut costs so that people with lower incomes could pay reduced rates? Why didn't you invent the idea of insurance co-ops? When people purchase a individual health policy it is expensive as hell, but when a group of 14 individuals buy into a cooperative it cuts costs significantly? Why haven't the Repubs favored that?

National Debt: America had a surplus when Clinton left office and under Bush we have the biggest debt in our history. How can people be so stupid by not getting this through their thick head? The IRaq war was put on a credit card and no other Republican I can think of other than Good Ol Ron Paul has had a practical answer to cutting spending.

Xeobian: I didn't spell it right, but I couldn't agree with you more. Memories like two year olds is right. Nevertheless, the last three elections the GOP is celebrating about are not typical. VA, NJ and Mass. In 2010 there will be ballot questions, mayors races, governors races, and it will bring out a lot more younger voters and inner city voters, and college students. To put a positive spin on it, Mass was an election for just one candidate.

We need to all pitch to get X some meds...he is having a hard time accepting the MA results yesterday..............and its effect on HCR.

You would need universal care to get me those meds. Sad to be a victim of your own hubris on such a subject. ;)

I am a New Englander and yes I accept the loss yesterday in Mass. I campaigned for Coakley and let me tell you, I have never campaigned for a weaker candidate. I knew her personally and thought she would be a good candidate, but obviously as a campaigner she was horrible. I do think Mass is one of the most male dominated states; Coakley would have won in VT or maybe NY, but something about Mass voters, they don't like female politicians.

Medicare would just reject you for those drugs. Single-payer would just not buy them and not acknowledge they exist.

Just yesterday, my grandmother fell going to get the mail. She hit her head fairly hard on the curb. The doctor wanted to give her a CAT scan to rule out bleeding in the brain. Medicare rejected her because they thought it was unnecessary. Luckily, she had Humana AARP private insurance that said they would cover it.

Pathetic that you libs still believe the kool-aid you consume,

You are right. Dems have been cowards since the 70s.

Yeah, Jimmy Carter was a good man, but was a very inaffective president. IF bill clinton had gotten this close to signing a health care Bill, he would do what it takes to talk common sense into the house and senate and get something passed. I don't think Obama is as agressive about getting things done as Bill.

LOL, I laugh at you Dems.

You just lost an unloseable seat all because of HCR yet you still live under the delusion that if you pass it 2012 will fare better.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Are Dems now insane?
