Democrat Pat Caddell – “We Are Headed For A Tidal Wave In November”
Flopping Aces ^ | 08-05-10 | Curt

Posted on 08/05/2010 7:16:31 PM PDT by Starman417

From a man who experienced all he needs to know about a major f#%k-up of a party during the Carter years:

[VIDEO AT SITE]

And the spin?

Well, its a good thing that we're gonna get our asses handed to us because we needed to get rid of some those hard-headed Democrats anyways:

In an interview with The Hill, the Energy and Commerce Committee chairman expressed confidence that Democrats will retain the House, and suggested he won’t miss some of the Democrats who won’t be back next year.

“I think a lot of the House seats we’re going to lose are those who have been the toughest for the Democrats to pull into line — the Democrats that have been the most difficult,” Waxman said…

“We’ve been trying to get the Democratic conservatives together with the rest of the Democratic Party, so in effect we’ve gotten bipartisan support among Democrats in the House,” the chairman said with a laugh. “Now we’ll have to work on genuine bipartisanship in the future.”

Ace on that bolded part:

Pat is really one of the best and most accurate analysts out there. Back in 06 Cadell said that the democrats would likely take both houses and take big losses in 2 to 4 tears.

Nationally its an insignificant race but the race to temporarily fill the traditionaly democrat held 65th district seat in Michigan should scare democrats. An unknown republican businessman won the seat with 6000 votes over a former democrat county commissioner who only got 2500 votes.

Conservatives need to run on the following issues up to the November election:

1. Cutting taxes

2. Job creation

3. Cutting government spending

4. Restoring states rights vs the federal government

5. Cutting the size and scope of government; putting limitations on government

6. Securing the Southern border

7. Repealing Obamacare and replacing it with something much much better

8. Strengthening the national defense

9. Safeguarding the second amendment

10. Passing a law outlawing anchor babies

11. Making English the official language of the US

12. Reaffirming the Defense of Marriage Act

13. Passing a law that states that photo identification must be shown in order to vote

Really like Pat Cadell but I think he’s really a conservative in disguise and relishes the role as a token Democrat who criticizes practically everything the Dems stand for and do. OK by us if he enjoys playing that subterfuge role. Just a hunch!

We have to rid congress of the RINO population and any Democrat that we can unload, as Nancy said “any way that we can”. There are a few good Democrats and Republicans in Congress, but if our country is to survive we have to replace them all with Americans.

I like Pat. He is a guy who seems really on the ball and with it. His views are both timely and current.

Frankly I think many democrats are in a panic and they are trying to hide it.

I also think they are failing in trying to defend their and Obama’s record with the American people which is yet another reason they are scared shitless and deservedly in a panic.

Look for democrats to run not walk away from Obama and the administration but one thing they cannot run away from is their own voting records.

And that is exactly why the moderate dems will face the ax just like the far left liberal commie dems in November.

Americans in every state want and need to take our country back from these communist fascists.

As the election draws closer in the Fall it will be interesting to witness the dynamics of how the Dems try to inspire and rally their base to vote. We conservatives need a massive GOTV campaign nonetheless—NEVER, EVER underestimate the impact of the vast moron drone voters across the nation. Let 2008 be a lesson to us all.

Absolutely. Every conservative voter in every single state needs to get out the vote, making sure any conservative neighbor or friend they know can get to the polls to vote in November. This is going to be the most important midterm election in US history because it will decide which fork in the road our country takes. The entire future of the country as we know it depends on this election.

Ah, Freeper, I salute you!!! Finally another Freeper gets it!!! Thank for your post!!! Yes, the “Tidal Wave” comes to life in only one way, using lots & lots of water stirred to life by strong winds or forces beneath the waves. So.....we need to harness the strong rejection of the Democrat Party and “Hate America” POTUS Barack Hussein Obama on November 2, 2010. How??? Simple, just come out and vote to destroy the entire Democrat Party to its very core!!! And.....ditto get your friends of all stripes, your family, your work associates, your church members, etc., and get them to come and & vote too!!! Now, if we could just harness a Freeper campaign that ends every posting with a one line sentance urging all of our side kindred spirits to get off their butts and vote, we surely will have a tidal wave of magificent proportion on election day evening. Get with good folks!!! There is no such animal as a good Democrat!!! End of story!!!

Republicans needs to adopt Nancy's tactic of "DRAIN THE SWAMP"...
The pundits should jump on Nancy's bandwagon too..
Except the swamp cannot be drained except by republicans..
Drain all the democrats and Rinos that can be drained..

THEN; back fill the swamp by reduceing federal government completely by 50%..
AND; indite all the indictable... and investigate the rest...

I rcvd today from the House of Representatives, in the name of my Rep., sttijng requirement of “an acceptable form of photo identificationi” in order to be permitted to vote on Nov. 2.
After listing five acceptable forms of photo I.D., this statement” “If you are not able to show an acceptable ID, you have the option of signing an affidavit, attesting to your personal identity. Once that is signed, you will be issued a ballot.”
So much for photo ID.

Yet I cannot understand why any decent human being would still allow himself to be called a Democrat; knowing that an effete cadre of elitist progressives have wrested control of their party and are leading the country toward third world junta government.

This midterm election _might_ be more important than the 2012 presidential election. The next two years will see an unrecoverable amount of damage done by the Democrats and Obama, if they remain in power.

It’s time to take up dirty fighting and run conservatives dressed in flaming liberal garb to get ‘em in.

There is no other way anymore.

It takes 4-6 years to get voted out if you scam your RAT constituency and overturn zero’s plan, anyway, may as well make it count.

He’s not a Democrat in disguise.

Earlier on FOX today someone (I forget which anchor person) jokingly said he regretted working for Carter. And Cadell said, “Never!” with a really warm smile on his face. He meant it when he said that. He is proud of working for Carter.

But Cadell is aghast at what the Democratic party is doing to this nation.

He said that years ago the party liked to be known as the party that helped people, and that today the party is ignoring the will of the people.

Pat Cadell is a Democrat...period. He regrets that the left fringe has taken over his party. He believes that the Republicans are NOT for the people, but the Democrats are. He doesn’t like the role reversal. It means that the socialists in his party have taken over total control of this country...and the Republicans are for the people.

He, also, said...to paraphrase...this is pre-revolutionary.

I agree...

Can we just quit this love fest with Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell already?

These bastards are Democommie strategists that allowed this party to advance to the place they got in the last 30 years. To hell with them

They are sent out there just to tickle the ears of conservatives sucker enough to be lulled in by their sweet nothings. Let's not let them play us. They are DEMS and they are still the ENEMY. Never lose sight of that. They need to be annihilated as much as any Obamazoic out there.

Both of them probably got dissed by higher ups, they continue to carry the baggage of Clinton and Carter, and are on the outs with the Obamoids. They are the equivalent of the Nicole Wallaces and the Peggy Noonans on our side.

Give them all no quarter -- Dems and RINOs alike -- and let's steam roller over the whole lot of them this November!

FReegards!

Pat Caddell was on Fox the other night (don’t recall show) but he appeared to have had some work done, perhaps a peel and eye job. Looked good but the dyed hair did not.

Pat is honest and doesn’t have a problem identifying what is bull for the great unwashed.

Do you, now? By that same logic, would you respect Goebbles, still proud of working for Hitler, admitting to his boss in the Berlin bunker with the Allies bearing down hard on them: "Gee, Adolph, looks like we're going to get creamed,. Where's the cyanide and that gas can anyway?"

I don’t need to be lectured, thank you very much.

Nobody lectured you here, lady, but if you think Cadell is the least bit honest you could demonstrate a whole lot less naivte by recognizing that anyone who still defends his service with Carter is as responsible for political strategy which promoted of ME policy back then, that has ultimately resulted in the US fighting the two wars it is in now.

If your memory has faded with regards to political policy which brought about the fall of the Shah, the rise of Hezbollah, and al-Queda, the bombing of the Twin Towers and state sponsored terrorism world-wide, maybe I'll have my two USMC active duty sons educate you a little bit with regard to what Cadell's political advice to Carter was back then in the '70's, since they deal with it every day.

You have GOT to be kidding!

They have stuck their necks out so far...and are in grave danger of having them lopped off, if that hasn’t happened already.

They were democrats before the commie insurgents took charge, and are trying to get the left back in line with their supposed platform...to be FOR the people instead of against them.

I know this might sound ridiculous to you, but I think they like this country.

As far as the Nicole Wallaces and the Peggy Noonans are concerned...they turned on us...especially Peggy...and went to the Obama side of the aisle.

Those two...I will give no quarter. I wonder if they care about this country more than they care about themselves, and their political clout.

I don’t have those worries about Cadell and Schoen.

Conservatives need to run on the following issues up to the November election

They need to run on something like the 13 issues you broached.

And they need to pass them all in Congress.

Sure, Obama will veto them. But make him do it.

It's called a.) keeping faith with your voters and b.) making him the one who is standing in the way of progress.

Do I take it from your screen name that you've been in the fight only since 2000?

I've been in the conservative opposition since the time when Goldwater ran against Johnson -- 35 years before. I was counter marching the "peace" protesters in the late '60's and early '70's. I participated in 3 Marches for Victory in Vietnam all in Washington, DC. I watched the routine appointments of CFR hacks into the State department and planting of Trilateral Commission operatives throughout the Carter Administration -- of which your present hero Pat Cadell was a proud part.

You're either late to the fight, or your memory has faded too.

Peggy Noonan was valuable during the Reagan Administration as an accomplished speechwriter the same way Pat Buchanan was valuable during Nixon in the same capacity. Both of their values to conservatism faded when they tried to elevate their own self-importance and as the efforts of each in later years only served to bring to power Obama and Clinton, respectively.

Pat Cadell and Doug Schoen are Democrats and they are the enemy. I watched them get us here. Anyone who stood in opposition to Reagan was and is the enemy. Never forget that.

Just because they are out of fashion because their power pigs are out of fashion in the current Administration doesn't make them a friend of conservatism. We should play them against our oppositon and bring them all down.

FReegards!

Knowing the future with certainty remains the sole province of God. True, I expect the dems to try any number of unprincipled stunts to keep their power. But you underestimate the American people. I work with people who are supposedly part of the “parasite” class. It is too easy to write them off as dem drones. They are more nearly economic slaves; they feel it and I attest they are looking hard for a way out, for a leader to lead them out.

One stunt that I heard might be coming down the road is an idea that’s been floated to have Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac forgive all their mortgage debt. That would be a spectacular and devastating blow against conservative objectives in this election, but I honestly believe enough people get the existential seriousness of what’s happening that even that would not derail the freedom train hurtling down the tracks toward November. No doubt some can be bought. But the rest of us will not sell our freedom at any price.

I am way older than that, and was involved way before that.

Pat Cadell and Doug Schoen are desperate. When I said they were trying to get the ‘rats back to being FOR the people...I was relating what they have been saying...not me.

Frankly...the only thing I enjoy about them is their obvious angst. ;o)
