There will be a lot of potential candidates dying to run against Obama's record. Republicans will have a lot of choices. I hope they don't choose to run a dumb campaign again, because the Obama years will take a lot of effort to clean up and another four years of the same will be hugely destructive to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Unfortunately, it's already starting. A former republican in South Dakota announced he might run as an independent, and the TEA PARTY is challenging John Coryn and Thad Cochran because he voted to confirm some people to keep the government running.
Cochran's seat could be up for grabs if he loses the primary, and if we lose that seat and SD, we may well lose the Senate.
I don't think people understand how important it is to win the Senate in order to boost our chances at the White House in 2016.
It would enable people to finally see what the republicans are putting in front of Obama, it will put him in the hot seat meaning he won't be able to campaign much in 2016.
As for idealistic conservatives and independents, if they want 30 and 2 seats respectively because of all these principles---- which frankly I don't think most of them aren't willing to make once things really do get bad-----the progressives who want to make the Catholic Church pay for contraception and force Christians to make cakes for gay "weddings" will take that every single time there is an election.
It's like a team in football that's down by 14 with 5 minutes to go and they are running the ball to get the running back better stats. :rolleyes:
