The Republicans have learned their lesson from 2022. A few more blue and purple states with GOP-gerrymandered-and-controlled legislatures will pass some "Shhh, honey, men are talking" laws requiring a woman's ballot to be approved by her husband and/or father before it can be cast.

Dems are going to run out of runway and voters will give up on them. They don't have the votes to pass pro-choice  legislation so even though people turned out to vote to try to restore abortion rights it isn't going to happen.

The Democrats need to stack the Supreme Court. America was cheated by McConnell and the wrong needs be righted.

You're full of sh*t. Not one single sincere person says "pro abortion."

"Pro-abortion" is playing directly into the hands of those that tell their lemming followers that people are so callous and uncaring that they somehow LIKE getting abortions, and that each and every one of these personal decisions is just a shrug of the shoulders and nothing else.

The party in power traditionally loses during midterms. Republicans were expected to win the House and very likely the Senate as well. Holding the Senate was a victory, particularly with wins in Nevada and Pennsylvania and a runoff in Georgia. Winning the governor's races in Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and Pennsylvania were all significant victories. Trump-backed candidates fared poorly, throwing the GQP into chaos. Younger people turned out en masse for Democrats. Predictions that anger over the SCOTUS abortion ruling would be largely forgotten by voters by now turned out to be wrong.

It's a matter of starting with realistic expectations then exceeding them.

Really?

Historaclly the party that holds the White House loses a significant number of seats in the House in midterm elections. There are only 2 exceptions to this trend in modern history. While the Dems still lost the House it was by a margin that was FAR less than historical trends. This is considered, by anyone who understands US politcs, to be relatively a "win" by the Dems even though they still lost the House by a thin margin. Following historacal trends the Dems should have lost many more seats.

This means many other subtle things. For example: If the GoP had taken the House in a "red wave", the messaging could have been (and would have been) that the losses were a madate against Biden and his policies. They don't have that levarage, in fact the opposite happened. The result was blamed on Ttump and the precieved leader of the GoP was called the "biggest loser" by even right wing media.

There is more to it, but that is the 101 version. If you want to understand it better do your own fscking homework. It is not my job to educate you.

It will.  All of the states will fashion laws that are popular in their states; even Florida and Virginia have already done so.  Pretty soon, someone will run on improving the lives of the people who live in states where people are satisfied with their abortion laws, and want more.  Whichever party keeps running on abortion is going to get its butt kicked a lot.

I don't disagree with any of this, aside from the fact that nothing can be done aside from packing the court.

The media was reporting that the most important issues to voters were gas prices and inflation, while exit polling showed that abortion and democracy were actually the most important issues to voters.

Dems need to triple down on pro-choice and free and fair elections, particularly now that the election is over gas prices and inflation are both "mysteriously" declining.

I don't understand how you can just completely ignore Hunter Biden like that.  Guy had a laptop after all.  Maybe even two.  We, the American people, demand answers about Hunter Biden and his history of laptop ownership.  Washington D.C. is clearly out of touch with the American people if we don't have hearings on the very important issue of Hunter Biden.

Plus, the Republicans were fantasizing about impeaching Biden and one of his cabinet members, even though the most optimistic projections didn't predict enough Senate wins to convict. Now, they might not have enough votes in the House to even get to a Senate trial.  They will have to rely on McCarthy's leadership skills (that'sthejoke.gif) to get a simple majority on anything.

You're right. Because things didn't end up exactly the way we wanted we should just recognize we're all doomed and should just kill ourselves.

Nobody's celebrating shiat. There does seem to be a sense of relief that it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I guess every team in the NFL that doesn't have a winning record should just quit since they're probably not going to win a title this year.

Let's maybe remember that the Democrats at minimum held serve in the Senate, meaning the judicial confirmations continue.

Also let's maybe remember the Democrats either held or took control of a lot of states that will be pretty important going into 2024, cutting off any avenue for voter suppression and electoral shenanigans.

But yes. The Republicans have an extremely narrow majority in just the House, so obviously all is lost.

In that analogy, the season is over, with a long off-season during which very little happens.  In reality, the new season begins very soon, and McCarthy has to start showing what he can do with a slim majority, and that will have real consequences in the sort term and leading up to the 2024 election. Keeping the Senate, and possibly gaining a seat, still counts as a win. Plus, we defeated a few really nutty candidates for governor and attorney general.

There were some actual wins along with the losses.

They won the house. I don't understand the Dems consider this a victory? Yes it could have been worse but a loss is a loss. America doesn't care about abortion. The results are obvious. I'm pro abortion but thinking this was a victory is insanity.

It's only a loss if you look narrowly enough, and ignore all the wins.

Did I say something funny?

People here are celebrating like we won the Super Bowl when all we did is beat the spread.

You're right. Because things didn't end up exactly the way we wanted we should just recognize we're all doomed and should just kill ourselves.

Nobody's celebrating shiat. There does seem to be a sense of relief that it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I guess every team in the NFL that doesn't have a winning record should just quit since they're probably not going to win a title this year.

It's more like making the Super Bowl, losing narrowly, and insisting it should be treated like an 0-16 season.


I've never said or implied that it was a disaster like that so nice strawman.

You sure about that? You're mighty invested in convincing other people to consider it an unequivocal defeat.

In that analogy, the season is over, with a long off-season during which very little happens.  In reality, the new season begins very soon, and McCarthy has to start showing what he can do with a slim majority, and that will have real consequences in the sort term and leading up to the 2024 election. Keeping the Senate, and possibly gaining a seat, still counts as a win. Plus, we defeated a few really nutty candidates for governor and attorney general.

There were some actual wins along with the losses.


We largely held the line but two years of Speaker McCarthy is going to be a pretty long two-year off-season.

We need a plan for 2024, and Biden will have a harder time against DeSantis than he did against Trump.  We can't let ego and tradition get in the way if a stronger candidate emerges.
