He won by like a couple fractions over an accused child molester. My goodness, deep southern whites have absolutely no moral compass whatsoever.

Just want to make sure we're talking about the right guy.

As I'm sure you are aware, during Obama's presidency, Democrats lost over 1,000 political seats.

If I spent my time celebrating every one of them, I wouldn't have had any time to do much else.

Celebrating a 1 point victory over a guy who may or may not be a pedophile...

right but most of that was over Obamacare which republicans lied to everybody about and intentionally sabotaged. ACA's approval rating has skyrocketed since the GOP botched their repeal attempt and had no solution. People are slowly coming to terms with the fact that the GOP doesnt do anything to help the common people. And the media sensation of Trump has made people who never gave a shit about politics suddenly start caring. He puts every republican sham on full display and attention for everybody to see so the tide is turning.... BIGly!

The senate swinging in 2018 would be far more helpful for Democrats than the House. The supreme and lower courts must be protected from Dump. Hopefully, it does for both. Can't wait for 2 more years because there are many old farts there in the supreme court.

yup...senate is the last stop and final say for all major legislation. GOP now has a 1 seat advantage and they couldnt pass squat with more so it aint looking good for them.

The ACAs approval rating has skyrocketed because there are more people living paycheck to paycheck (or rather, handout to handout) who don't pay a dime then there are people who have to go bankrupt to afford it.

People are always going to approve stuff that is 'free'.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

Roy Moore's time has come and gone. He shouldn't have won the primary to begin with but he had enough evangelicals snowed to get past Luther Strange. Once the pedophile crap came out it was game over. It would've been a mess if he had won. An immediate congressional investigation would've followed and he more than likely would've been forced to resign.

Doug Jones winning will be good in that the House and Senate can finalize the tax bill and get it to Trump's desk before Jones is seated and they won't be bogged down in an investigation of Moore.

Just because Moore is a Republican doesn't mean all Republicans wanted him to win, despite Trump throwing his support at the last minute.

Trump supported Moore the whole way through... almost everyday giving a public endorsement.
