GOP Rep. Yoder predicts narrow Obama victory (Idiot Alert)
The Hill ^ | 12/27/2011 | Josiah Ryan

Posted on 12/27/2011 4:19:42 PM PST by tobyhill

Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.), in an interview published Monday, predicted that President Obama would narrowly win reelection next year but that Republicans would capture the Senate.

"If I had to predict, I would project that the president would narrowly win reelection, the House would stay the way it is and the Senate would go Republican," said Yoder, in an interview with the Kansas City Star.

If we continue the circular firing squad, he will win in a landslide.

Democrats say that Republicans are to blame because they won’t move off their stance to tax the rich. Do they have a point?

I think that the fact that Democrats make that point makes me wonder why they continue to put those types of things in legislation. I think it’s frustrating for me when one side says, ‘Look, we’re not going to accept a certain provision in legislation, no matter what, and the other side continues to put them in there.’

We know 95 percent of Republicans signed the no-tax pledge. They’ve made it very clear. I don’t know what we benefit ourselves from continuing to go down that road.

I have to disagree Toby. For one reason. The republican establishment. The establishment is so petulant that they’re going to continue to undermine any conservative candidate from now until the nomination.

And should a conservative get the nomination, whoever that conservative nominee is, is going to have to defeat simultaneously Obama, the DNC, the RNC, and the media.

Conversely, what if the republican establishment successfully forces Romney upon us?

Many of us conservatives will stay home and others will go third party. Obama will then have defeated McCain for a second time.

Can someone please teach these Republican that if reporters start asking you questions and you don’t have anything interesting, useful or constructive to say then just STFU.

Sometimes I just feel like bitch slapping these people.

he might be an idiot, but right now. so am i...that's how I’m seeing it right now. Notwithstanding his dismal performance numbers. Obama’s personal likability continues to poll in the high 70’s low 80’s.

To me, Gingrich\Romney look\sound like they're constipated.

I won’t stay home. But I won’t vote for the Commie lib posing as a republican Mittens either. I’ll skip the top of the ticket or write in.

I gotta make sure Michelle stays in the house after all ;)

(and hopefully send Amy K packing from the senate)

The problem is that he makes his prediction then claims it's because the GOP signed the no tax increase pledge.

In other words, he wants to compromise because he believes he will have some Rat friends.

It’s reassuring that my congressman (Yoder) is listening to the RINOs in his leadership, the RINOs at the RNC and all of the other “Establishment” in DC. (/sarcasm)

I couldn’t agree more. While the Pubbies circle each other like sharks in a feeding frenzy, Jug-Ears merrily vacations our tax dollars away with his “What, me worry?” attitude. Is the fix already in and he knows he’s going to win? Dems foist no-starters off on Republicans in the primaries and the real conservatives give up and stay home assuring another term for ol’ Jug-Ears.

I agree. As much as I despise the rats, with the lame brained Republican candidates we have, I think Obama will win another term. I hate to say that, and I surely hope I am wrong, but until election night, I am sure Obama will win again. It happened with Clinton, it will happen with Obama.

No news here, Yoder (my 3rd Dist.) congressman, voted for every tax increase when he served in the KS House of Rep., along with his other RINOs representing KS voters.

They always claimed "it's for the children" don't you know.

It is very discouraging that so many posters will not vote for Romney under any circumstances. Romney is not my first, second or even third choice. However, in what will be a close election,, the alternative to Romney will be Obama. To me that is an alternative worse than death.

I agree with Rep. Yoder except for the ‘narrow’ part. I believe Obama will be re-elected quite comfortably because the GOP old-turd establishment is bound and determined to have Romney as the nominee. The damnable neo-cons like Karl Rove are trashing conservatives at every turn and I am so stinking mad at them I can’t find words to express just how mad I am. But I can say that if these rotten SOB’s get their way and nominate Romney there is no way in hell I will vote for Romney. Screw Karl Rove and screw the establishment GOP! And by ‘screw I really mean %$@*!

A real leader does not predict his side’s defeat, even if that’s what he’s thinking. We need more leaders, fewer politicians.

Unfortunately, I'll walk across broken glass to vote for the GOP nominee - anything to get the Obama's as far away from ruining (running) this country as possible.

Mittens probably qualifies as a "progressive" but Obama is pure Marxist and the question of progressive vs Marxism, I'll vote for progressive then work to get all RINOs out of Congress so that Mittens can inflict little harm.

He's not a Conservative, he's another RINO telling Conservatives to submit to the GOP establishment and just accept Obama for another 4 years.

Well then, the GOP should have thought of that consequence when they decided to cram Mittens down our throats.

The only way to get a message through their thick skulls is to see Romney lose. If they bamboozle conservatives into voting for Romney, then they can cram all manner of non-conservative crap down our throats, just as Bush did with medicare part d, the TEA, TARP, etc.

“Obama’s personal likability continues to poll in the high 70’s low 80’s.”

I don't know of a single person who is honest, responsible and intelligent who likes Obama.

Who are all these supposed people who find Obama likable? They don't do any useful work. They don't live responsible lives. I think these polls are phony.
