Skip to comments.Seventy-Five Seats! Do I Hear 80?
Posted on 10/12/2010 8:13:49 AM PDT by Lakeshark
So much for the storyline that the Democrats have turned the corner in the midterm races. The New York Times tells us:
Republicans are expanding the battle for the House into districts that Democrats had once considered relatively safe, while Democrats began a strategy of triage

They have turned the corner and are now heading south.
The day that overstratched *itch hands the gavel over because her arrogance lost her party the House, I plan on DVR’ing that event so that everytime I am feeling down I can look at it again and smile.
I think you should post it on YouTube and ping all of us there!
I will be dancing!
Just to be able to watch the misery in the newsrooms over and over for a few days.........shadenfreude is a great term.
Polls seem to be a way to allow politicians to count their chickens before they hatch.
Don’t get me wrong, I am encouraged, but it ain’t over till it’s over. Chicken counting time is later.
My minimum several weeks ago was 80 and 8. I’ll not raise that projection but rather on November 2 I’ll enjoy watching myself proved timid and over-cautious.
Will 80 be enough?
If we do not win the congress...I give up!
Dick Morris thinks 100 seats is not out of the question. I hope he doesn’t have his foot in his mouth. (I know, I know....)
Once again, as they did in the clinton years, the Democrats have taken their power and greedily jumped into the sewer with it.
Unfortunately, the usual Republican response has been to join them there.
Let’s just hope we get enough good Tea Party types into office so this time will be different. Above all, we need to repeal or defund Obamacare pronto, before it starts to take effect.
Since the time of Woodrow Wilson and FDR and LBJ, the Republicans have NEVER reversed any of those big government expansions. Will this time be different? We’d better hope so, because time has run out.
Hope it happens and hope they keep their heads and not become power mad when it does or they will find their *ss out of office too.
That’s a great link. Thank you.
I want to watch MSNBC on election night to see how Rachel Maddow, Olbermann, Ed Schultz, the morning Joe crew, etc. handle all the “bad” election night news. They will be seeing their liberal utopian dreams fading away, and have to try to be somewhat professional as they will be on TV reporting the news.
What will liberals do now that their liberal dreams will fade out? They might have to watch reruns of “The West Wing” to see how life should be when you have a good liberal president and liberal Congress, all working together for the common good. I think reality bit the liberals in the butt as we see their dreams didn’t come true, even with a good liberal president and good liberals in charge of both houses of Congress.
Well, I would like to see Melissa Haluszczak defeat the Democrat stooge, Mike Doyle in PA-14 (Pittsburgh).
We’ve had a Democrat stooge here for all of my adult life.
Doyle is the one who convinced the Stupak anti-abortion group to swallow Obama’s “Executive Order” crap. This enabled healthcare to pass.
Melissa is a great conservative. She deserves a chance. But needs a little help (financial). Can you give $10, $20 or a little bit more?
I say shove that gavel where the sun don’t shine and buy a new one.
LOL. If your prediction comes true, I won't be able to get up on November 3rd cause my head will hurt too much!
80-100, been saying it for months.
The best thing that will come out of this election is the neutering of Obama’s destructive anti-American agenda.
It’s gonna take a long time to undo the damage he’s already done, but now he’ll have a hostile Congress to deal with.
Today, Congress. Tomorrow, the White House!
...a big O-hole...
I think on election night I am gonna visit the cemetery just to make sure all the local dead are still accounted for and aren’t out there voting.
I share your enthusiasm, but it is tempered by the knowledge that they will still have Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, agricultural subsidies and even Obamacare. In other words, liberals will still have a huge welfare state.
If the new majority fails to at least phase out these programs, we will still be going backwards.
I plan on putting one tv on CNN, One on PMSNBC and the big one on Fox News...
It depends on all of us. We've to watch them very closely and let them know our thoughts on any "delays, compromises, etc." right at their offices, call them and email them to let them know that the days of waiting till "next" election to throw them out are over.
Any politicians in states that have recall provisions should be aware of starting recall petitions for special elections immediately. No governors' appointments should be allowed.
Watch them like a hawk or fall back to business as usual!
Tomorrow couldn’t come soon enough. When the new congress is seated it ought to be made clear that impeachment is on the table, tyranny will not be tolerated, and that the Republic must stand for Liberty and Justice for All Americans - and those who foresake those principles are making themselves targets, putting BHO, Holder, Geithner and all those others still left standing in the administration and the congress on notice.
What jerk he was with that, and it still amazes me how he basically cast democrats and big government in the role of parents that failed to properly instruct and train us dumb voters and yet he was still able to cast himself as objective. Unreal. He was int he midst of his own erudite and well spoken temper tantrum about his team losing yet he was the one with no dog in the fight.
I taped Little Dicky Gephardt handing the gavel to Newt.
Even Soros now seems less willing to throw money down the RAT hole...
I have 3 days off, Monday (Nov 1st), Tuesday (2nd) (Woot) and Wednesday (3rd). To record and have fun those days! And to record the events for future watching!
Same here. Much as I hate to give them ratings, the 6-8 hour angstfest will be something to remember.
I watched them during Scott Brown's election and the whining, sniveling and barely suppressed condescension for Mass. voters was about 1% of what it will be on Nov. 2nd.
(That's predicated on the hope that we turn out big.)
Exactly. I don’t mean to rain on the party. But we cannot afford to let up. We have to keep pushing and pushing until we get the rats out of office and either reform or, if necessary, replace the Republican Party.
We’re off to a good start!
No dog in the fight. Correct. He wasn’t even a citizen back then.
Good point. Do NOT take a drink every time the conservatives pick up a Dem seat, or you won't make it past the polls closing on the east coast. I'm not betting on a pickup of 108, just four past the number that would get to you, but it's mathematically possible, and it gives us the numbers to override a veto. Unfortunately, the Senate cannot get to that level this year, but the House could be a beautiful thing.
No notice necessary, rather, start investigating the whole crew, including but not limited to, defunding the Czar business. If 0b0z0 wants them, fine, he pays their salaries, their aides and commissions from his own pocket. We'll see how long that will take without taxpayers' money!
0b0z0 should be put on notice regarding his undocumented status! Talking about blackmailing the POTUS, oops, Im a racist, riiiiight!
I think it will be closer to 100 than it is 80.
The Czar business is straight up naked tryanny and should be near the top of that long long list of offenses to the Republic. Amen.
It’s not racist to stand for Justice. If he can’t prove his status, then Justice is not being served. It may have to be served to him at the point of a pitchfork.
If I toed you once, I toed you a thousand times... ;-P
And it IS going to happen if we ALL do our share to make it so.
That’s it, right there.
I was just kidding! I couldn't use the wrong-context "whitemailing" even if 0b0z0 is half-and-half!
I know you were kiddin...I was making a point to the rest that no matter what - Justice is blind. Fighting for Justice is never a racist idea, regardless of how Obama, Holder and company conduct themselves...No matter what they would tell us about ‘social justice’ or other such non-sense memes.
I remember watching in 1994. They all had such sour faces. It was obvious the bias. They just keep repeating the only good news they had, “But Oliver North is loosing in VA” I remember it well. This one will be a FUN one too I am certain. Even more so with so much more internet and the new media.
The Dems have flown a Cessna 150 into a box canyon...
