Moderate Republicans like me rather vote in Liberal Democrats than Conservative Republicans. So the Democrats will start to have a lock on the White House similar to what the Republicans had from Nixon to Bush Jr.

Then... why... are you a Republican? And how can you call yourself "moderate" if all you ever do is vote liberal democrat?

I think it depends on who the GOP nominee will be in 2012 and 2016

The GOP didn't really have a lock on the White House between 1968 and 2004. Sure, they won 7 out of 10 Presidential elections, but Democrats let 1968, 2004, and especially 2000 slip from their grasp.

It's about expectations and change. Unemployment was still high in 1936, but FDR won 48 states.

And when Franklin Roosevelt had that massive landslide of a re-election, the Republicans were still being rejected thanks to their disastrous predecessor, Herbert Hoover. And that's been a lesson around here, with George W. Bush this period's Herbert Hoover, with a desperate insistence by the GOPs here who think the party can win back the White House as soon as 2012. It's bizarre and delusional.

It goes a little like:

Liberal republicans>Moderate Republicans>Moderate Democrats>Liberal Democrats>Conservative Democrats>Conservative Republicans

i voted for Jim Douglas and Barack Obama in 2008.

We'll see how the 2010 elections go. If Republicans were that much in disfavor and Bush still remembered, Democrats would be picking up seats this year.

I hope you're not serious. Even Obama and Pelosi are preparing to lose the House by asking for money from people to fight off Republican ads. That's a sign of retreat. I'm looking forward to seeing Pelosi handing over the gavel. Plus Bush will soon be more popular than Obama.
