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.
