The battle for the U.S. Senate: GOP candidates steer clear of Romney comments

It wasn't long ago, just a few months ago in fact, Republicans were optimistic they could reclaim the majority in the Senate. They only needed to flip four seats.

Romney's effect on Senate race

There are eight states Republicans were optimistic they could keep or carry. Now a number of those states are toss-ups with Democrats actually leading in several of the states including Virginia, Missouri, and Massachusetts.

    Mitt Romney has a 4 part plan to get elected and every one should be aware of it.

    1. Get a few white rich men to pay for everything--CK

    2. Get all the bigots and raciest----------–CK

    3. Get all the stupid people ( lots of them)(Bush got elected twice, Palin is rich, Rush is super rich, Beckman keeps getting re-elected) which all proves

    that there are a lot of stupid people. so-CK

    4. Get voter laws changed just to put him over the top in case it's close and just to be sure and just because those on the right don't really have a back-

    bone to really speak-up especially the "white house".........so.....CK

    Will it work...time will tell and lets be real, the other side has done a lot of good things......but they are just the "lesser of two evils".
