    Fabulous that Reid won, but please don't send a Republican anchor to cover a Democrat party. She actually nearly said, "I'm sorry to say!" that Reid won. Her personal views totally covered everything she said. Anyway, send the Repubs to cover their own and the Dems to cover their own. Or at least news anchors who can do a better job of hiding their personal feelings.

    This is the guy who believes it's okay for Legal Tax Paying Americans to pay for the Birth, healthcare, education, welfare, foodstamps, child care legal representation, court costs, criminal incarceration and all the other social programs for ILLEGAL aliens, when our own families are discriminated against. Shows how smart Dems are. Unbelievable.... Unbelievable.

      I believe that the Rebuplicans had conrol of house, senate and Presidential seats from 2000 to 2006 and President Obama had the worst crisis in 60 years for only 2 years. What the hell are you talking about. Nothing was done but a wall bandaid in 6 years what did you really expect in 2, non-thinking, short memory obvious right?

    Ugh, every silver lining has a cloud. America gets six more years of Dingy Harry. Better that he had lost, and maybe returned to Searchlight and taken over servicing his mother's laundry clientele (what a role reversal that would be!).

    Reid's a turd. And he certainly didn't receive a mandate. If the Republicans had just run a little better candidate he would have got his butt trounced.

      Bush rigged his. Dems didnt have to. Sharon Angle is so right and undecisive it wasnt hard to beat her. Henry has got the message. Nothing will get done, yu thought it was gridlocked before. People will suffer even more. Repulicans are not that bright. And Rand Paul is proof of that, Kentucky what are you thinking?

      I totally agree 'All of America' – Reid is a loser! And to 'Scottish Mama' – What are YOU thinking? You must be thinking with something other than your brain...Your comment to 'Tory' isn't even worth responding to, it's that stupid. Don't know where you get your info, but it is sadly lacking.

      @Scottish Mama...I love the "gridlock" argument. The Republicans were the party of no. The Democrats tried to force through all these bad bills and the Republicans did what they could. They stood up for us. And, in case you didn't notice, the Republicans had huge wins across the board. So I guess the polls were not wrong. I guess Americans have spoken on who they believe are "bright"

    The dems are always wrong , that's whats right about them.They would stop at nothing to get reid reelected. In two years ,obama and his corrupt dem followers have trashed the U S economy and showed their true colors. Now that the republicans regain some control , obama's socialistic agenda will be stopped in it's tracks.

      When Bush was sworn in on January 20, 2001, the national debt was $5,727,776,738,304.64.

      When "W" left office on January 20, 2009, the national debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08.

      The growth in the national debt during his eight years in office: $4,899,100,310,608.44.

      The average yearly growth in the national debt during Bush's presidency: $612,387,538,826.05.

      During much of Bush's tenure, he had a Republican majority in both the House and the Senate.

      You should educate yourself on who really caused the meltdown we are surviving today. As well, the bailout and financial crash was during George Bush's office. He let it all crash then his time was up, time for a democrat to come in and take over to make sure that George's legacy did not destroy us all. Then, the Republicans are so simple that they have brain freeze and blame Obama for things that happened by a Rebulican President and Republican House and Senate. It is amazing how the Republicans say they are taking back America to "fix it" when the last time they "fixed it" we will be decades recovering from. Get an education, actually deal with facts rather than blind ignorance.
      By the way, I am an Independent. I refuse to be subjected to blind loyality to any party that will twist the facts simply to win. Wake up America...stop backing one party or the other, begin to vote for honest politicians that actually deal with the facts.
      And Ziggy, please list yourself as the most ignorant comments yet on this blog.

    To the republicans and fox news. Slow down take a breath. This was not mandate or a referendum on president obama or a historic election. This was a typical midterm election. Party in power lose seats. It would have historic or special if the democrats had won seats or retained seats.

      You should research before you post Richard ... this is more seats lost in a midterm than anytime since Harry Truman was President ... and the second-most seats lost by a party in midterms ever ... obviously an historic occasion and clearly a mandate.

    As for Reid beating Angle, she did that to herself by not answering questions and when a question was answered it nothing but empty retoric and bumber sticker slogans.

    too bad the democratic citizens chose to stay home or not vote. the democratic party would win every national election if they only got out. to those voters who stayed home and allowed such a wide margin of victory by the idiot party of no, in states we couldnt afford to lose, i hate boehner, you have only yourselves to blame. the rest of America thanks you for being lazy and selfish. get out next time if you want your country to move in the right direction. you let the tea party racists and the no party repubs get back in power. stay clear headed and get some interest in politics and this would never happen.
