      Maybe its false hope but don't forget that the congress has a 9% approval rate. Dems had a much higher approval rate (14% I think, don't quote me) and we still got swept out.

      Also this is a much bigger election which means our message will get out more.

      And OWS is giving us momentum.

      Lets cross our fingers and hope for the best. At the same time we need to GOTV always.

      •  I do hope for the best. And do my part as (0+ / 0-)

        well. But hoping for super-majorities is for someone who likes to hope for impossible things. I set my sights on the attainable. If you've studied the senate races up in '12 you see that keeping the majority will be hard (though possible). Getting 60 seats is absolutely, positively not going to happen.

        •  thats ok (1+ / 0-)

          We got a ton of stuff done without a supermajority from 2008 to 2010. We will continue to get stuff done. They wont be as progressive as we would want, but they will definitely move in the right direction.
