This is a disaster for the Republicans [View all]

The first mid-term for a new president is supposed to be a shellacking by the opposition, and they blew it. Yes, we've taken a few tough losses. But this is no red tsunami.

Just more proof, in case you needed it, that the GOP is nothing but smoke and mirrors. Reality slaps them in the face once again.
