Morris says Republicans could pick up 100 House Seats in 2010
FOX News | August 24, 2009

Posted on 08/24/2009 6:14:41 PM PDT by Lucius Cornelius Sulla

On the Hannity show, Dick Morris just said he thinks the Democrats will lose as many as 100 seats in 2010. Hannity was so shocked that he audibly gasped.

I know, it is Morris, but this is a stunning prediction.

Remember this night: August 24. If Morris is right, we need to give him props.

Let the Dems nuclear option ObamaCare into passage and Morris may not be as far off as some may think.

Lets be fair, Morris said that if we hit a “double dip” recession, which is blamed on the Obama deficits, including this health care stuff, then ——

Well, then it would be a no-brainer, the Dems would be in big trouble!

What is the current make up? Would that switch the majority?

But have the Repubs actually chosen some candidates with better morals than the dim-crats? If not, what good is it?

The Rats won’t care. They will have socialized medicine and if they no longer fear being thrown out, they will figure they have nothing to lose and will ram all sorts of crap down our throats.

They know that the sheeple are stupid and they will just be out of power for a decade or so. In the meantime, we are screwed.

We have many fantastic Republicans in the US House. This is a great base on which to build a majority.

A lot can happen in the year and over 2 months till the mid term elections. But a change of 100 seats seems very high.

Don’t Dems. have about 255 seats now in the House? It takes 218 to have control.

Historically the party in power loses seats in mid-term elections. I just hope that healtcare, cap and tax/cap and trade, or other Porkulus type bills don’t get passed while the Dems. still have their big majority.

It would give the GOP a bigger majority than the current Dem majority, and bigger than they have had since before the Depression, IMHO!

I can't say I am surprised. I have have made a few posts in other threads, predicting a total clobbering of the Dims come 2010 elections that will make 1994 look like the Boys Scouts.
I have never seen Americans so incensed over anything like they are over this deadly 0bamacare right now.

Frankly, if you are looking for Saints in your politicians, you are really never going to be happy.

“Put not your faith in princes”

The objective, in every election, is voting against the most evil person on the ballot, since we must start with the proposition that everyone on the ballot is a sinner.

This is true.
Also with the Republicans becoming the majority again,
this means having a Republican as Chairman of each Committee and being able to call the shots.

The Democr@p National Socialists know this. It is obvious from the hard turn by independents against zero.

Does anyone really think the SEIU brownshirts, ACORN, other union thugs, black panthers, statists, and obamabots will let this happen? They’ll wreck the country and (further) trash the Constitution first. Or at least they’ll try...

My Rep will not have meetings, will not take calls and will not show up anywhere.

What say we start a movement to have all Americans of good conscience go down to the various state buildings and start requesting info about entering their names for state and federal positions for the races in 2010?? It would bring some recognition of the problem, we could count on the movement getting some media coverage and MAYBE the Reps and Senators would get the message that pitchforks aren’t too far behind.

Imagine if 30 million people (just RUSH listeners!) swamped all the state offices demanding papers to run for the offices that the Congress people seem to think are theirs for life??

Yeah.
Like 0bama trying to pass even more of his super expensive, far left radical agenda, which will piss Americans off even more. Americans are still seething over the first porkulus bill, and the ever rising massive deficits that 0bama is racking up.

Current House make-up:

257 Democrats

178 Republicans

A 100 seat swing would look like this:

157 Democrats

278 Republicans

Very BAD idea.

Divide and conquer, the OTHER side!

Do not divide OUR ranks!

Conservatives would hold far more seats if we were not so bull headed and did not split the votes so often, by running against each other in the Primary.

It is stunning. I wonder if the Dems peruse the nuclear option if it may not come true. Possibly more.

33 or so seats in the US Senate will be on the ballot.

All 435? seat in the US House will be on the ballot.

Punditry? Amazing isn’t it. I would say the Congress will go Pubbie as in past history of mid-term election ... however this time is a real unknown.

Dems might push things to hard. Pubbies show a distinct lack of leadership and aggressiveness. 15 months and counting!

Will never happen. It's impossible with the way the districts have been gerrymandered the last 60 years, especially the last 25-30 years.

The most seats lost in the last 100 years was by the Republican in 1932 at 101. And, that was remarkable considering just two years before (a year after the stock market crash), the Republicans lost 51 seats. In the 1932 election, the Republicans had squandered a 100+ seat majority it enjoyed just four short years before, and had a deficit of 113.

It was because of those tremendous swings - which were the completely reflective of the reactionary nature that the Founders intended the House to have - that gerrymandering became as prevalent as it did. Politicians didn't want to have such volatility in the careers.

As it stands today, because of the industrial nature of professional politics, it makes it virtually impossible to have such explosives changes - like another 100 swing in the House. It's really too bad.
