      •  Not sure. Some weeks I think poorly (0+ / 0-)

        of their chances in the House. Some weeks I look at the Democrats like on the jobs bill, and I think- wow, do they want to lose on purpose?

        I don't think there's a chance of the GOP taking the Senate.

        Ultimately, if the choice is between two people screwing you over for jobs, many voters, who are facing economic hard times however may think in the scheme of things- what's the difference other than two tears in a bucket.

      •  By the way, I hope that your comment (0+ / 0-)

        is not meant to instill fear.

        Mostly, I try to deal in reality rather than what I would like voters to be. Yeah, I would like them to be reasonable, and logical. But that'snot always the case. Part of it is that they are given a irrational system in which to work- how do they, for example, say to Congress we are displeased with your lack of action on jobs if the Dems aren't acting, and their other choice is nuts? The rational answer should be that they would choose the Democrats over nuts, but again, they are losing their jobs anyway, so they may think what's the difference other than the two tears? Your admonishing them to fear the GOP is not going to be enough to motivate.
