Skip to comments.GOP cancer: Party could lose 20 more (House) seats
Posted on 05/15/2008 2:55:58 PM PDT by jern
For the past 18 months, ever since the 2006 elections, congressional Republicans have been like a hospital patient trying to convince visitors that he is not really all that sick: a bit under the weather; actually feel better than I sound; should be up and about any day; thanks for asking.
Suddenly belatedly all pretense is gone.
The Republican defeat in Tuesdays special election in Mississippi, in a deeply conservative district where, in an average year, Democrats cannot even compete, was a clear sign that the GOP has the political equivalent of cancer that has spread throughout the body. Many House GOP operatives are privately predicting that the party could easily lose up to 20 seats this fall.
Combined with the 30 seats that the GOP lost in 2006, that would leave the party facing a 70-vote deficit against Democrats in the House a state of powerlessness reminiscent of Republicans long wilderness years in the 1960s and 70s.

Too bad it has signed on to this euthenasia.
But Captain, I can't hold her together much longer... Scotty.
I just don’t understand how this can happen since the leading GOP candidate supports open borders, Cap and Trade economics, restrictions on free speech among other enlightened ideas.
At least it’s not 1936 all over again...
And ... Along with all 3 branches of Govt, The Dems will probably have a filibuster proof Senate, 3 more Liberal Supreme Court Justices. Its going to be a long generation for some ... !
Anybody got a fork? I think we’re gonna need it.
Good! They deserve all the grief that get. I am tired of supporting a party does not have my values anymore.
More money to the national republican party.
I WILL NOT VOTE FOR JUAN.
“Suddenly belatedly all pretense is gone.”
It’s about f____ing time!
I hear it every day from people who ask breathlessly, "why doesn't some good conservative Republican make a speech and set things right."
Well the truth is, many Republicans do offer solutions and make comments.
But the 'reporting' media, the AP, ABC news, Reuters, Breitbart, Yahoo News, Google News, UPI ---- will not report any good thing a conservative says.
If a tree falls in the forest, and no one hears it, did it really happen.
In the world of Republican vs Democrat politics.... the answer is a resounding NO.
Uh yeah, but the GOP has not been able to admit where the onset of the cancer lies.
They will soon, but they are too brain screwed to admit it.
Hint....dump McCain and the stupid Rockefeller nitwits. You will win.
Hint....wheres the money?
Not only that, but if the party listens to Tom Cole and friends, the candidates we will run will be in the "McCain mold." So that means Democrat supermajorities competing will solidly left-wing RINO minorities.
Newt gave them power on a platter - and they threw it away. Hope all the liberals they cozied up to will be there for them...
It’s going to take a rhino-ectomy to get rid of the cancer.
What the hell are you gonna do about it?! Fix it.
I believe the dems have their own version of Operation Chaos. And it’s working. With RINO’s like McCain as our choice, no wonder the news is rife with these reports.
But you know... If America survived the Carter years and the Clinton years, then the Obama presidency won’t destroy us.
It's going to be a democrat landslide IMO. Plus, in addition to McCain's moderate beliefs, he has no energy...
Yep, it was done in 2006, they just ain’t figured it out yet.
...for as long as the eye can see.
The Davis loss has a bit less to do with the national problems, of which there are many, than it does with his having to run against a RINO who unloaded the kitchen sink and fed ammo to the DNCC. The taint did not wash off and Childress was able to take advantage of it.
