Way too early to call. Democrats have a 60% chance of taking the house.

What is with the doomsaying? The GOP will control the presidency and senate.

There just needs to be more give and take. Obama did fine under far more difficult circumstances (GOP controlled both the house and Senate).

Have some faith in Trump.

"Obama did fine under far more difficult circumstances (GOP controlled both the house and Senate)."

You do realize that Obama spent his first two years with Democrats in control of Congress and six years with control 9ver the Senate, right?

Wharever happens this election, there are some pretty basic mechanics at work. After all the years of kabuke that we've witnessed, youd think that UPers would have developed a sense of pattern recognition by now.

Countdown to how long Trump goes before blaming the government spending deficit on the Democratic house of representatives.

More likely how long before he vetos their budget for having 'a chicken in every pot' listed.

Was flipping channels listening. Someone on FOX News commented that with Democrats taking the house things would change. Another person asked what had changed and pointed out President Trump didn't get his wall, couldn't get rid of Obamacare and one other big issue I forget now. He went on to say nothing will change President Trump still will not be able to build a wall and all that other stuff.

The Dems were insisting they would impeach Trump and Kavanaugh both.

they insisted neither, that was Faux News and Traitor Trump claiming that was the Dem position

Not sure a single person said it of Kavanaugh in particular

Trump is about to have a victory celebration... i'd like to note again in the Senate:

R's were defending 9 seats (some uncontested)
D's were defending 26 seats (including red states)

R's gaining seats not that shocking

"Not sure a single person said it of Kavanaugh in particular"

There's not really any other reason to promise to subpoena Mark Judge.

investigating is not impeaching, no one promised to impeach Kavanaugh (unless you watched Fox News where they pretended it was a promise)

Trump claims the record # of Republicans retiring from the House was because they were losing their chairperson positions from term limits (rather than the likely reason of being disgusted by the direction the party going w/ Trump)

i'm going to guess the # losing chairperson positions due to limits is <5... (# of retirees was in the 40s)

Some Democrats have been insisting the would proceed with impeachment of both President Trump and Kavanaugh so it wasn't just FOX News making shit up. Democratic leadership though is trying to walk that backwards because they know it would end bad for them. The Democrats I saw (actually heard them speak the words) said they would go after Kavanaugh believing he has committed perjury. Again probably not going to happen because the leaders of the house know how messy that would get.
The house can bring people up and make them testify but I doubt anything will come of it. They will either take the 5th or just dance around and not tell us anything we do not already know.
If the house does decide an investigation provided enough evidence to proceed it will go to the Senate and die there.

find me anyone promising to impeach Kavanaugh

saying they will do investigation properly and then impeaching if Kavanaugh found to have lied is not the same, that what Rs should want as well in that case

I saw with my own eyes Faux News pushing the claim they would impeach Kavanaugh... NO evidence to back it up

you are really stuck on that word promise. None promised they would impeach. Some did say they would begin the process to impeach as soon as the new congress takes session.

Who?... who said they would begin impeachment? (For Kavanaugh)

impeaching Trump is justified and recommended (but that isn't going to happen either)

Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif and Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, D-Ill have been the most vocal. Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York was even before confirmation said if the house wins then he would start an investigation looking into perjury charges. So far he hasn't backed away from that.

I know it doesn't matter one bit but it is amazing how many online petitions there are calling for Kavanaugh to be impeached. Bunch of grass root idiots thinking clicking on a button is making a difference.

saying they would investigate is not saying they would impeach... impeachment comes when the investigation finds a cause for impeachment

if there is cause for impeachment then what is wrong w/ impeachment? (plus actual removal requires 67 Senators, an impossibility even if D's had won every senate race)


Faux stressed impeachment, not investigating


Faux tweet: "Trump: Talk of Kavanaugh Impeachment Is an 'Insult to the American Public'"

Faux chyron: "Some Democrats Threaten to Impeach Kavanaugh"

Faux article: "Justice Kavanaugh may be headed for impeachment if Democrats win a House majority"

while on the topic of lies...

Trump was asked about his 10% tax cut today that was just about to be passed according to him... he said no point in bringing it to congress as they don't have the votes (that's even now, under current congress)

so it was NEVER happening... not that his fans will give a shit about his total made-up lie for the x,xxxth time

...and the idea he even checked to see if he had the votes is a lie too... just his excuse since it was a total fabrication from the start

Paul Ryan's office had referred media questions about the fictitious tax cut back to the White House... obviously not what would happened if there had been discussions

this guy is such an obvious disgusting fraud, yet so many people don't see it...
