It’s fine. 2 years of unfettered liberalism will result in 12-16 of rebounding conservativism. It’s happened before, and they won’t be able to control themselves this time either.
The pump is primed for disaster anyway, and they have no clue how to avoid it.
It was SO important McCain handle the bailout situation properly & I'm afraid he didn't/isn't.
Sixty Democrats in the Senate with Obama in the White House is the end. They will lock the system down so totally there will be no getting rid of them.
Interesting Rothenberg uses the “perfect storm” analogy, implying that rising support for Dhimmis in the Senate is a very, very, very bad thing! Probably an unintentional image, but I like it.
So the Democrats cause the crisis and CNN expects them to gain from causing the crisis. That’s circular reasoning if I ever heard it.
Everyone I talk to knows what has happened it’s up to Republicans like Chris Shays to explain the whys ...
Here is a video of Rep Shays explaining, pass it around http://10ksnookers.blogspot.com/2008/10/corrupt-democrats.html
“In the face of an economy in crisis and a deeply unpopular president, some analysts believe the situation is ripe to give Democrats a 60-seat filibuster-proof majority in the Senate in November.”
The economy tanked from Democrat congressional leadership and corruption.
The Democrat Congress’ approval radting is even lower than the President.
Republicans disapprove of President Bush for different reasons than the Democrats do. The Left thinks Bush is too far to the Right. The Right believes he isn’t far enough to the Right.
Republicans disapproval of Bush won’t translate to a rejection of Republican Congressmen. Bush is leaving office but the Congressmen will remain. RINOs in Congress and personal rejection of Republican congressman may be a factor in Republican congressmen being rejected by GOP voters.
And what of the 2/3rds “supermajority” the Democrats wanted on votes?
So where are the Republicans? They sure haven’t been out there blaming this Fannie, Freddie thing on the Dems which would sure make it tougher for the Dems. There are so many things the Dems have hung around the neck of the Republicans and they have done little to fight back. Sorry, but that is the way I see it.
Barack Obama recently said, The first thing Id do as president would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, This legislation would wipe out all state and federal abortion restrictions including the partial-birth abortion ban.
I think there is no question that they pick up seats. The pins are positioned right for that. That said I highly doubt they hit sixty. I think 57-58 would be a more likely number.
If the Democrats are so proud of attaining a majority and no longer opposing a president (I thought that was the Democrats complaint of a Republican President and Republican Congress), why aren’t they so open with what their agenda items on Iraq, taxes, drilling, abortion, homosexuality, and health care will be?
I’m prepared for it if it happens. My wife and I will make the following changes to my finances and spending habits:
1. We will not do business with anyone who donates or supports Dems, regardless of how much we like their product or service. We will look up contributions even for a furnace repairman or plumber. We won’t give a reason why we have suspended our business with them.
2. We are in the process of establishing an offshore account for a portion of our assets. I am concerned that the Fed and the Dems will impose capital/currency controls at some point. It happened in Venezuela, Russia, and Zimbabwe, why not here?
3. We will SHARPLY curtail our discretionary spending, and will only pay cash for the little that we do consume- credit lines will exist only for an emergency.
By 10pm Pacific time on November fourth two things will have happened. McCain will have been declared the winner. Obama and company will be rushing more video to a studio for the next expose on stolen elections that will be played hundreds of times before the election in 2012.
Right now they are playing the last one. And they are also playing Bobbie over and over.
Jack, Martin, Bobbie, the liberals are saying, “Let’s win this one for them.” Gag me with a pitch fork.
Even the cable services are in the tank for team stank!
Should the Dems fail to win 60 senate seats on Nov 4, on what date will they file some charges against or float some scandal about a GOP senator from a state with a Democratic Governor?"
How anyone could possibly want one party to be in charge is beyond me. When we had both house and senate I knew we wouldnt do anything (we never do). These yahoo’s will go to town!
This is such utter BS. I have never been so angry at the mainstream media in all my life. They have lied again and again for Barack Obama and for the democrats.
Now, we have an old asshat of a candidate who doesn’t know how to fight and may have refused negative campaigning until ti was too late.
The only upside of the Dems being veto and filibuster proof is that they won’t be able to pass off their failures on the GOP. It’ll all be on them.
NM, VA, CO seats are gone.
NH, OR, NC are currently D leans.
AK, MN races are wild, let’s say they are tossups.
On a really bad day we may lose all 8.
Which means we need to hold all of MS, GA, KY. Looked easy a week ago, not so easy now.
The DEMs will be lucky to pick up 5 seats and 2010 looks great for the GOP when one looks at who is in play that year - We are likely to pick right back up 4-6 Senate seats in 2010 -
Great job, Republicans! Your short-sighted greed and corruption completely “trashed your brand” in a short 4 years!
They don’t call ‘em the STUPID party for nothing.
