Annihilating the GOP? Not just wishful thinking of liberal Democrats but delusional dreaming. As Barone pointed out, the GOP was not overwhelmingly defeated by Obama and the party held the House with a comfortable margin. It's unlikely Democrats will have the kind of support they had last year in next year's midterm elections. Even if they did, it wouldn't be enough to take back the House (they couldn't do it with BO on the ticket). As for the Senate, nearly twice as many Dems are up, many in red states (AK, AR, LA, WV, SD) and the liberal agenda being pushed by BO is not going to be of much benefit to them. IMO, Obama & Dems are at their "high point" now, and until 11/2014, it's all downhill!
