House Editor David Wasserman writes: At the outset of Congressional primary season, the battle for the House is at cross-currents. Atmospheric indicators are suddenly looking surprisingly favorable for Democrats: a National Journal poll showed Democrats leading the generic Congressional ballot 48 percent to 37 percent, and a recent Washington Post poll put President Obama ahead of Mitt Romney, 52 percent to 43 percent. But as Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler's retirement reminds us, the structural impediments to a Democratic majority continue to pile higher, and for every seat on the minus side of Democrats' ledger, the stronger the wave they will need.

It sounds as though communism is starting to sink in with the garbage dump bears living in this country. “...and freebies for all...”
They’re citing a faulty Washington Post poll that polled only adults, not likely or even registered voters, to make the case for the Democrats having momentum towards winning the House? Get real. And I don’t believe that generic ballot poll cited for a moment. Rasmussen has shown it either even or with a small edge for the GOP for a long time.
Even without BO....Imagine Romney as President...Pelosi in charge of the house again and Reid with the Senate....Socialism by any other name(still STINKS!)
I see they mention my Congressman, Shuler, in the article. He got redistricted out of his seat and that means we’ll have a Republican and conservative here in WNC. Good riddance Heath!
