    Looks like its going to be another year of big turn over in the House and Senate in next years vote. It looks like the anti-incumbent trend starts right when the Democrats took over. Then really took off under Obama.

  2. 2010 broke a 60 year old record for Congressional turnover.
    Only 89% were reelected.

    The polls for congressional approval mean very little. So many districts are gerrymandered to protect incumbents.

    Pelousi had an approval rating of 15% and won her district by 20 points. The whole system is corrupt
  3. Funny thing is people always think congress is doing a bad job EXCEPT their congressman.Because of this the same fools get elected over and over again
  4. been voting Sen.Lugar since 1982, this cycle, nope. Time for new talent.

    Funny thing is YOU are going to vote for Obama - again. It's the same thing genius.
  6. I'm sure as hell not voting for Newt or Romney

  8. The poster may have not checked the mirror --- There is funnier: what about those who may have tried to vote for W. in the last election (He was not running at the last election BTW!)?
