Democrats running scared for 2010 elections
Examiner.Com ^ | December 19 2009 | Dwight L. Schwab Jr.

Posted on 12/19/2009 8:41:56 AM PST by GonzoII

It’s hard to believe that just 11 short months ago, the Republican Party was all but declared a non-entity for the next 50 years in American politics. Now it seems by all poll indications, the Republicans are back and they may make the 1994 off-year elections look tame compared to what may be in store in 2010.

The early scent of a future landslide defeat usually begins with the party’s own starting to withdraw as candidates.

Early reports show Reps. Dennis Moore of Kansas, John Tanner and Bart Gordon of Tennessee, Brian Baird of Washington and Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii (quitting to run for governor) retiring from the House. It might be noted that all come from districts beginning to lean toward the Republicans in growing numbers.

There are also Democrats that have chosen to stay and fight that are in serious danger of being ousted next year.

At the top of that group is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. Not only is he behind in every state poll in Nevada, both his Republican challengers are ahead of him almost a year before the election. Senator Reid and House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are the poster children of President Obama and his ever-growing unpopular domestic policies.

Every major national polling organization has found the Republicans growing a lead over their Democratic rivals of four points and growing by the month. The premature prediction that the Republicans were finished for years to come was just that; premature.

Democrat’s real problem is coming from Independents. They comprise approximately 19% of the electorate. Whereas Obama corralled most of their support in the 2008 election, his unpopular stances on health care reform and carbon taxes along with the almost invisible stimulus money is shifting a vast majority of those votes to...

It sure as hell doesn’t seem like it! They keep passing more Communist Legislation.

It’s like they all have plans to have some kind of back door job once they get booted from Congress.

They should all be in prison!

These scum not only will be out of office, but their names will be synonymous with TREASON and TRAITORS. In the future, every time their family name is mentioned, the American people must associate them with Treason to their country. Benedict Arnolds of the future. May they all rot together for eternity.

It’s all theater, just like Ben Nelson’s “ethics”. If there IS an election in 2010, Amnesty will save them. Personally, I don’t believe they will even bother with the farce.

Frankly, I don’t think Republicans regaining control in the House or Senate (very unlikely) is even relevant any more. The Dems have won the debate and will get their health care bill and it will never be rolled back. It will, however, be expanded. I also don’t believe there’s the landslide coming that everyone now expects. As Rush has repeatedly said, the stimulus bill is nothing more than a monster slush fund which Dems will use to their advantage next year. If I sound pessimistic it’s because I am.

This data is a reflection of utter rejection of the Democrats, not of approval for Republicans.

I look for reasons to believe the GOP will do better than they did nine years ago, and see nothing.

What is pessimistic is that until the punk president is gone, we will not be able to reverse this crap. 2010 will just stop it.

The Dems are not running scared. If 2010 scared them, healthcare would be dead. They’ve heard the public doesn’t want it but they aren’t afraid to pass it. They know something that we don’t. Bet on it.

A major network commentator stated: “When a President’s poll numbers are this low in his first two years in office, his party usually loses 40+ seats in the House at mid-term elections”.

Ohaha has become very toxic. He is poisoning the chances of Dem candidates.

DO WE NEED FURTHER PROOF? 2009 gubernatorial elections in Va and NJ clipped the wings of Obama's plans for a permanent Democratic realignment. Winning Repub candidates in NJ and Va (the only two 2009 statewide races) won Independents by a 2-1 margin, (66%-33% and 60%-30%, respectively); McCain lost Independents in each state to Obama a year earlier.

====================================

Any fool can plainly see that Obama and endangered Dems are frantic----rushing to get govt billions into the hands of ACORN, SEIU, immigrant groups, and others, BEFORE the Nov 2010-12 elections.

Even stupid Dems know that, for them, it's curtains in 2010-12---unless massive voter fraud takes place. They need to buy votes, and are pulling out all the stops to get billions into the hands of their operatives---ACORN, SEIU, immigrant groups, and others.

=========================================

OBAMACARE UPDATE The US Senate may break their own rules-----and go against the will of the vast majority of US Citizens----to pass their health care bill.......by using the nuclear option.

Obama's healthcare gimmicks are legion:

(A) The first four years of ObamaCare is to amass $$billions. Period. Free govt healthcare does not kick in til 2013.

(B) Pushes much of the healthcare costs from the federal budget and onto the private sector by requiring individuals and employers to purchase health insurance....or pay a hefty fine or go to jail (only illegals are exempt from this provision).

(C) When the bills force somebody to pay $10,000 to the government, the Congressional Budget Office treats that as a tax.

(D) When the government hands that $10,000 to private insurers, the CBO counts that as government spending.

(E) But when the bills achieve the exact same outcome by forcing somebody to pay $10,000 directly to a private insurance company, it appears nowhere in the official CBO cost estimates — neither as federal revenues nor federal spending. That’s a sharp departure from how the CBO treated similar mandates in the Clinton health plan. And it hides maybe 60 percent of the legislation’s total costs.

The Obama Enron tricks have only one purpose: to accrue massive amounts of govt money into campaign accounts to elect/reelect Dems. That is the one and only reason to frantically push ObamaCare on a recalcitrant citizenry.

======================================

Obama already has huge slush funds:

(a) 80% of the trillion dollar stim is unspent and under his control, being hoarded for Dem campaigns.

(b) June 9, 2009 Obama announced, "Several financial institutions are set to pay back $68B to taxpayers." Taxpayers assumed that would be returned to the general funds from whence it had come .......in order to pay down the debt. The truth, however, is that the money returned is finding new life as part of what amounts to a Treasury Dept-controlled slush fund.

ITS ALREADY HAPPENING 2009 elections clipped the wings of Obama's plans for a permanent Democratic realignment. NJ and Va gubernatorial candidates---the only two 2009 statewide races---won Independents by a 2-1 margin, (66%-33% and 60%-30%, respectively); McCain lost Independents in each state to Obama a year earlier.

=========================================

AFTERMATH According to Ohaha's slimy Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, Ohaha was "busy with other matters" election night 2009 and "wasn't really concerned" with election results...an indication the WH is sucking up valium and vodka in order to anesthetize themselves from the aftermath.....trying to convince themselves the election was not a referendum on Obama.

The tsunami is ahead---in 2010-12.

========================================

THE OBAMA SLAPDOWN Ohaha was heavly invested in the 2009 NJ gubernatorial race. His carefully-laid plans----for installing a permanent Dem majority USING ILLEGALS' VOTES----went haywire. Pulling out all the stops made Ohaha a VERY good target for voters disgusted with Ohaha’s policies.

The New Jersey race was considered a "squeaker" that would go on till all hours. But two hours after the polls closed, the Repub was declared the winner with a comfortable 4-point margin (would have been higher were it not for Dem voter fraud).

OBAMA WAS DESPERATE FOR NJ's CORZINE TO WIN. The NY Times reported:
(a) every TV ad Corzine put on the air was screened by Obama's WH team.
(b) Corzine's aides gave the WH daily briefings.
(c) Obama’s pollsters took over for Corzine’s polling team,
(d) White House operatives were on the ground for internal strategy sessions,
(e) White House operatives were orchestrating obscure pep rallies with Latinos (kept secret from voters),
(f) Ohaha campaigned in the state three times, Biden was there twice.
(g) Ohaha TV ads ran relentlessly in costly NY media markets.
(h) The crooked NJ Democrat Machine was also running at warp speed.

The New Jersey race was considered a "squeaker" that would go on till all hours. But two hours after the polls closed, the Repub was declared the winner with a comfortable 4-point margin (would have been higher were it not for Dem voter fraud).

Other pertinent facts:

>> Incumbent Dem Jon Corzine (the wealthy loser) outspent the Repub winner Chris Chirstie about 4-1.
>> New Jersey has a huge Democratic registration.
>> Corzine bragged he had 20,000 paid union helpers on the ground election day to get out the vote.
>> There was a third party candidate siphoning off Republican votes.
>> Corzine had the power of incumbency.
>> Corzine had the power of a crooked Democrat Machine cooking the vote.
>> Ohaha hid $17.5 BILLION stimlulus in New Jersey.....for Corzine's reelection campaign.

And still Corzine lost decisively.

===========================================

DEMS SUCKED UP BIGTIME TO FACILITATE AN ILLEGAL TAKEOVER. :

(a) Incumbent Corzine promised illegals ‘driving credentials’ & in-state tuition.
(b) Corzine REFUSED to enforce current immigration laws.
(c) Corzine formed a Blue Ribbon committee of latinos using tax dollars to mine hyphenate votes for Corzine.
(d) Also sucking-up was Democrat US Sen Robert Menendez, a Spanish-speaking Corzine campaigner.
(e) Corzine appointed latinos to the Supreme Court and to other high profile state jobs,
(f) Corzine had a "Peruvian Pac" endorsing him,
(g) Obama's operatives were orchestrating obscure pep rallies with NJ Latinos (kept secret from voters).

AND THE WINNER IS The winning Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate----a County Sheriff----was lacerated by latino groups. She had applied for the federal 287(g) program, to question every inmate coming into the County jail about his/her immigration status, regardless of the offense for which they are incarcerated. The Sheriff had sought to ensure that "criminals" are not unduly released for fear of further harm to the community. The 287(g) program would provide the Sheriff with personnel and tools to punish individuals being held at the County jail (this was in contrast to the criteria set forth by candidate Corzine). Illegals lacerated the Sheriff for political pandering and for scouting incidents of indictable offenses such as driving under the influence by undocumented immigrants.

NEW JERSEY IS "IDENTITY FRAUD CENTRAL" FOR LATINO IDENTITY THEFT.

Two Texans busted in bogus ID operation in NJ ----NORTH BERGEN, NJ -- July 21, 2006 -- Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, authorities said. The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker.

The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses for any state in the US, passports and resident alien cards, said state police. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot. Authorities wouldn't identify the NJ hotel by name for fear it would spark retribution. The Drug Interdiction Task Force, regularly runs checks.

The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. Authorities approached the Texas brothers when they returned to the NJ hotel and questioned them separately. The Texas brothers consented to a search.

Police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs. All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street. Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 Social Security cards.

But the Democrats do have a game plan and they will spend what’s necessary to advance their objectives no matter if it’s taxpayer or private money. They’ve proven over and over that they can buy support when necessary. Unfortunately, the Republicans have no plan and virtually no platform on the table that anyone can buy in to. The Republicans also have no leadership, and have not shown themselves to be a party of principle. I’ve been a Republican for many years, mostly because I don’t like the Democrat’s socialist agenda. The Republicans are constantly hitting on me for money to support the party, but what am I supporting? Now is the time for the Republicans to define a platform based on principles that made the country strong and proud in the past, and in turn strengthened the Republican party. A Republican spokesman and leader is desperately needed to restore sanity to our country. The Republicans won’t loose because the Democrats are that good. Republicans will loose for the lack of a coherent and principled platform, and for the lack of leadership.

You may be right. They don’t seem that scared to me. When you have Acorn to cheat for you and recounts (except for the 2000 election) seem to always find more votes for the democrats and people can vote multiple times because they don’t have to show i.d., go to other states and vote as in the case with Ohio, I really don’t think they’re all that worried. We’ve got to figure out how to change all that or Democrats will remain the permanent majority. I can’t believe there has not been more outrage over the stolen elections in 2008. Cheating doesn’t faze them when there are no consequences. I don’t like sounding negative either, Republicans have the advantage, but we’ve got to figure out ways to keep them from stealing the next election. They have managed to work things out too much in their favor.

John Tanner just turned 65 and Bart Gordon is 60, so they aren't that old. Not sure why they are retiring, but Tennessee was one of Obama's worst states last year, and I don't think there is a high number of illegal aliens in either district, so they wouldn't gain many votes from amnesty.

Maybe it would be useful to have a map showing the number of illegals per Congressional district, and see how the FIA districts (few illegal aliens) match up with the districts where Democrat incumbents don't run for re-election.

“They tend to rally behind Moderate Mitt Romney”

Well, I for one, and the vast majority of the other freepers are not a part of the “they.”

It’s insane that they keep preaching “broaden the base, broaden the base, expand the tent, expand the tent,” when that has been attempted and it has proven nothing but disastrous.

Haven’t they gotten the message? NO MORE RINOs!!!

So-called “moderates” don’t help the GOP, they poison it. They don’t vote with us and they backstab us at every single chance they can get (need I mention Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins?)

In order to win back Congress, we need to have CONSERVATIVE candidates, not just anyone with an (R) next to their name. RINOs are unacceptable and intolerable.

As for Romney, all we need to say is “RomneyCare” and he’s done.

Seems to me as is they’re acting as if they’ll never have to face another election.

Yep. So if thier future is bright, then this is just them pushing forward into victorious totalitarian rule. But if their future is dark, then this is like Hitler ordering Paris and Berlin to be destroyed out of sheer spite over losing the war.

Personally, I don't think God will abandon America - at least, the principles of freedom which America represents. How, exactly, it will all shake out, however... remains to be seen.

So you don’t think the bill will pass? I’m having a hard time understanding exactly what you’re trying to say (except that I’m wrong). Last chance. Tell me where I’m wrong. Saying I’m wrong again won’t cut it.

The bill may pass, but you said that the Dems have won the debate...which is like saying that Roman Polanski seduced the 13 year old...and yes, it is exactly the same thing...

They had better be scared, their health bill is nothing but a hugh tax hike with very little chance it will be spent on healthcare.

I believe you may be correct; it may come to that to restore the Constitution and rid the country of the Nazi socialist democrat party.
