Skip to comments.The Coming Democratic Midterm Collapse
Posted on 08/02/2014 6:31:18 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
History tells us the six-year itch is a very real thing, and theres little Obamas Democrats can do to stave off a big loss this November.
Time has been cruel to many once-revered political assertions. No, all politics is not local. No, the road to the White House does not lead through New Hampshire. The solid South hasnt been a solid Democratic redoubt since 1944; rock ribbed Republican New England has yielded a grand total of four electoral votes for the GOP in the last six Presidential elections. If youre looking for a truism that remains true, then reach out and grasp this one: the six year curse. With one (highly instructive) exception, the party that holds the White House will lose Congressional seats in the six-year midterms. It happened to Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt; it happened to Ike and LBJ and Reagan. It will almost surely happen to Barack Obama this November.Why? There is no single reason; there are, rather, different forces, any one of which can afflict the party thats held the White House for six years. What makes this November so daunting for Democrats is that almost all of them are at work this time....

Something about counting chickens comes to mind...
As does the GOPe’s propensity for yanking defeat from the jaws of victory.
One can only hope this will be the outcome. Just keep John (Maverick) McCain, Lindsay Graham, Mitch McConnell and John (boo-hoo)Boehner away from the controls. You just know they will try to ‘save’ the Dems from themselves just to get a proverbial ‘star on their forehead’ from the media. The Old Guard simply will not learn and must be gently escorted to the sidelines asap.
The GOPE will do everything it can to throw this election.
The sad part is we have only the GOP to replace them.
If this happens, their first and only priority will be a huge amnesty package. They onslaught to get it passed by the GOP will be extraordinary.
Shadow POTUS and the not so shadow Speaker...
I think everything written is accurate. However, I believe even Obama’s supporters know he is destroying the entire country. They may not vote at all. It is going to come down to specific states where people still support incumbents for their seniority and name recognition. Perfect example is Al Franken. This moron has done nothing. The people of his state couldn’t care less. He is still in the lead and has the added vote fraud factor. I NJ Booker is a shoe in. They could run anyone with a D in NJ and win.
Ahh yes, my good friends, sister Sarah and brother Ted. Long may they talk! Rep. Peter King (GOP) is baffled and flustered as to why Cruz gets so much respect and deference, when Cruz is somewhat new to the political scene, unlike King.
Except that he isn’t. Read his bio:
Obama has Google’s Civitas database for GOTV, electioneering, and selective voter suppression. IRS, EPA, OSHA, DHS and for all I know the Forestry Service all actively participated in the last election. The MSM was openly and very actively working to cover up any information about 0bama and act as a propaganda conduit for The Party. We will have about a half-million new illegal voters shipped primarily to Red states (Blue governors are refusing them loudly). There were allegedly several precincts that voted 100% or even 110% for The 0ne.
It’s a little early to count those chickens.
What difference, at this point, does it make?
The Donkeys may, and most likely will get fewer votes but I dont see them loosing as many elections as people think, Given the fact that the GOP has given absolutely no reason to vote for them, and I wont, The vote will be split between libertarians, others or none of the above ( write in) votes.
The only thing the GOP has assured people is they dont like americans anymore than the dems do but they love the shit out of the Chamber of Corny Capitolism
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
I often consider the GOP winning the Senate and keeping the House. However, I’m certain with this President and the current GOP leadership this election outcome will NOT correct the negative trajectory on which this country travels. In fact, it just as likely will worsen it.
This change must have happened rather quickly. When - and why?
Not so sure...I travel around the country on my job and there are tons of minorities everywhere it seems. Remember the predictions that Romney was going to win fairly big?
If the DemoRats hang onto the Senate it won’t be a big surprise. Morons vote and there are a lot of them unfortunately.
When all the Massholes moved to New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont and took their idiot political habits with them . . .
“As long as Obama has a pen and phone, and gets to use them at will, Congress is redundant for the most part.”
And he will continue to rule unless the Senate has the votes to convict. That ain’t gonna happen. Two very bad years coming up. Veto city.
The GOPe will pick up 3-4 Sin-ate seats. They aren’t interested in winning.
That is the sad reality.
If we HOLD TOUGH on Amnesty, we WIN BIG. If not, we’ll be lucky not to lose ground.
That is the ONLY issue that can hurt us at this point.
I'm going to have to say
no — I say this because of the reaction (or lack thereof) by the Republican party [as a whole] regarding things like the Fast & Furious incident , the NSA's domestic espionage, the IRS's political targeting, or any number of things.
If that's true, look for the GOP to double-down on it.
After all they did push Romney, the only man who could lose to Obama.
...but last week ended well. Boener could have had the Dems carry the day by forcing a vote on that crappy bill, but he chose not to and instead let Cruz run the show.
Maybe something good will come out of it.
We have so much debt that we’re going to pay a heavy price one way or the other.
But, if this country is going to burn, I’d rather it burn with us fighting for it than just roll over and let Fool Sucka play Nero.
We are in the midst of that very coupe right now.
Except, insofar as I know, Art 4 Sec 4 didn't come up in those talks.
As my default position is now cynicism, I regard it a
Maybe something good will come out of it.
I hope so; but I doubt it will.
“or even 110% for The 0ne.”
yes but so did the one precinct in Philly that voted 118% for Clinton’s last election.
Don’t know if you noticed how quickly after the Obama presidential wins that some offices or independent groups or another came forth to say there was NO fraud at all.
Same old, same old and nothing will ever change. And the left has no compunction to feel bad if their people win due to fraud.
I meant the other way around.
I believe the Democrat’s assumption their voters are too stupid to see though them and their deception and manipulation us about to come back and kick them in the butt big time.
> I believe the Democrats assumption that their voters are too stupid to see though them and their deception and manipulation is about to come back and kick them in the butt big time.
“I will not support those who are a weak echo of the Democrats.”
Then you will end up electing Democrats. You may as well just vote straight Democrat then. The result will be the same.
When I first read that line I thought it said "play Negro".
Just as true that way---ha!
"Gotta stop...hatin' all the time!"
Whadda dumbarse he is.
Yeah? I wish the libs I know could see it. My wife's uncle, my BIL and his Jewish NEA wife all think the sun shines out of his butt and that I am a whiny loser.
BTW, I point out his wife being Jewish because it is so creepy to watch Zero crap on Israel and so obviously support the people that want to commit genocide against Jews, and she acts like none of it is happening.
With the level of blatant anti Semitism coming from the Dems and this administration seemingly causing no erosion of the Dems Jewish base, I gotta wonder if there is any hope.
Add to that the daily efforts by the GOP to sell us out, and I think the Pubbies may have more of a problem getting their [former] base to show up at the polls than the Rats. Hell, we all know that if they take control of both houses they are going to ram amnesty through. They're stinking traitors and conservatives know it.
If you follow the link, be prepared for a vomiting chunks pic of Pelosi.
Doesn’t seem like us voting against Thud Cochran will be that big a deal
Notice that good old Jeff, like a tried & true member of the Obama ass-lickin’media, makes not ONE mention of any of Obamba’s illegalities as a reason for the coming national electoral enema.
Something about RINO corporatist who aren’t conservative comes to mind. Oh yeah, they’re 80% of the people the Repukes are running this year. When, tell me when are we going to FUMIGATE this party?!
November 22, 1963
That's only half of it. The other worry is counting votes. The thugs control the vote count, and I expect fraud on an even more massive scale than usual. Decent people need to get involved at the polls, plus we need to make sure the margin is so large that it's beyond the margin of fraud.
