BREAKING: Democrats Admit They Wont Take Back the House, Election Is Lost Posted on October 25, 2012 by Kevin DuJan // Breaking News, Featured Content
I invite anyone who can find fault with my logic on this to chime in below because I want this to be a teachable moment for those out there who keep reading the Doom Reports that the Ministry of Truth in the national media churns out claiming that Democrats are confident of victory on November 6th.
Folks, Democrats know they are going to lose big. Ive been telling you that for months now. It all started with Obama making the You didnt build that; somebody else made that happen statement in July because after that Democrats realized they needed a miracle for Obama to overcome a public statement even worse than his one about Pennsylvanians being bitter clingers back in 2008 (which was made in a private San Francisco fundraiser inside the fabulous Getty Mansion, but it went public soon after that). But, after his disastrous debate performance in Denver the election has really and truly been over for this man and the only thing left to resolve is just how big a win Mitt Romney is going to have. Democrats are under no delusion that Obama can still win:
* a home has been purchased for the Obamas via a blind trust on the island of Oahu that will serve as the Obamas temporary residence beginning in January of 2013 until a grander, custom-built mansion can be completed for them in the next few years; this is very similar to what happened to Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos when they, too, were exiled to Hawaii after being ousted from power.
* Obamas bright young thing staffers are shopping their resumes and trying to land jobs in Chicago, New York, Philly, DC, or LA because they know they will be unemployed come January 2013.
* aggressive fundraising is underway in Chicago (led by Penny Pritzker) for the nascent Barack Obama Center for Social Justice and presidential library which will constructed at the University of Hawaii near Honolulu; the University of Chicago has publicly admitted that the Obama library, museum, and Center for Social Justice will not be built in Illinois (which means it is in fact going to Honolulu).
* the Obama campaign has booked McCormick Place instead of Grant Park for his election night event on November 6th; McCormick Place is an isolated and fortress-like facility thats not conducive to large throngs of supporters assembling unwanted and is the polar opposite from the seat of Obamas 2008 cult rally in the heart of Chicago that was designed to host a victorious crowd of many thousands. This is not the election night event of a candidate who thinks he has any chance in Hell of winning and is instead the plans for the Obama concession speech.
A new harbinger of the Democrats doom emerged today in the form of announcements that Nancy Pelosi is preparing the terms of her retirement from Congress; its my personal belief that after this election she will retire to her vineyard in the San Francisco valley (which I like to call Vultures Nest, with apologies to Jane Wyman and Lorenzo Lamas).
Long gone are the days when Pelosi talked of regaining control of the House and reemerging as Speaker after November 6th.
Democrats are instead circling Pelosi and preparing to oust her as Minority Leader and send her packing back to Vultures Nest. In all likelihood, Pelosi will of course win another term in Congress but dont expect her to serve it. There will be a special election to replace her next year and shell unceremoniously retire from Congress rather than accept marginalization to a position of irrelevance after having called the shots more or less for the last 10 years. Its well known that Nancy Pelosi behaves in private like a bad imitation of Fay Dunaway-as-Joan-Crawford-in-Mommie-Dearest, and anyone whos seen the movie knows how well Joan took it when MGM decided to cut her from her contract and remove her from the peacocks throne at the studio. This is how Pelosi is most likely taking the plans to maneuver a new generation into the Democrats leadership ranks.
You need to read between the lines here but this is damage control that the Democrats are doing now. Its also the first signs of the Democrat Civil War that will emerge on November 7th and continue through 2016, when two factions engage in open hostilities against one another in the aftermath of Barack Obamas sound defeat twelve days from now. It will be the Clinton Restoration versus the Obama Remnant the centrists versus the leftists in a battle for the soul of the Democrat Party and its future.
I have no idea who will win, but I can already spot the sides aligning and the battle lines being drawn. It is going to be ugly, caustic, and wildly entertaining for the next four years and the first political casualties will be people like Pelosi who will be blamed for going too far, too fast and allowing Americans to see clearly that the Left controls the Democrat Party and thats a bad thing for the country.
I am going to put this in bold because I think its something that a lot of conservative writers do not understand (which is stupid on their part): If Democrats have given up on winning back the House then they have realized that Obama is not going to win reelection because if Obama won reelection they would also win the House.
Please try to correct me if I am wrong (but Im not) because I do not see a scenario where Obama would win the election but Democrats would also not win the House; its actually not possible because the exact same factors needed for Obama to win reelection are the same ones at the state level that Democrats need to take back the House and reinstall Nancy Pelosi as Speaker (as she insisted would happen up until, oh, around the time of the Denver Presidential Debate). What conservative writers are largely missing (and Minitru will never report) is that Democrats plans for winning scores of seats in Congress in this election have gone up in flames because they stupidly have been working under the assumption that 2008 was a transformational election and not a giant, hysterical fluke that pushed what people thought was a magical black man into the presidency. Democrats have spent the last four years assuming they were wildly popular and had a stranglehold on power that would last generations but instead they went too far, too fast with Leftist agendas and were rebuked in 2010 by voters. Democrats then assumed that this was a minor hiccup and they believed their own hype and lies that the Tea Party was not real, or if it was that it had peaked and had receded. Mintru enabled this thinking because it, too, wanted the Tea Party and revolt against the Left to not be real in the slightest.
Thats why all the polling has been so wrong: the Lefts been insisting to the pollsters that Americans love Democrats more in 2012 than they did in 2008, but that is just not true. Its the complete opposite of reality. Never before have Democrats been more perceived as Leftists and been more unpopular with the voting public. Party insiders see the harbingers for Democrats doom and are making the moves expected of a party that knows it is going to lose.
The Ministry of Truth will not acknowledge this because the news business is first and foremost and ad business and the viewers who remain with MSNBC, CNN, and the like want to hear stories about Democrats winning this election even if those stories are just fantasies and lies. They might as well be showing cartoons. Meanwhile, you have conservative writers like Allahpundit at HotAir.com, Erick Erikson at Redstate.com, and Ben Shapiro over at Breitbart.com who see opportunity to generate hits for themselves by peddling fear porn which is picked up by lefty sites who want to say to their own readers, See! Obama really will win! Even these conservative writers think so!. I dont believe for a minute that Allahpundit, Erick Erikson, or Ben Shapiro really think Barack Obama has any chance of winning but I think they write the way they do because they are purposefully trying to make conservative readers anxious and panicked so that people keep rushing back to check their site for the latest updates. More site traffic equals bigger bonuses for these guys and a higher profile with which to command a better gig in their careers after the election. Theyre all counting on the fact, of course, that conservatives will just be so euphoric to have Obama removed from office that everyone will just forget about the Eeyore-breeding and anxiety-creating these guys did in the last two weeks of the presidential race. This amnesia happens every time Republicans win where people willfully forget how much conservative writers panicked or depressed them for no reason. There never seems to be any professional consequences for Allahpundit, Erick Erikson, or Ben Shapiro but there should be.
I really want to ask you to avoid any natural tendencies toward depression or panic that you might have as an individual and remind yourself that 80% of politics is psychological warfare. We really and truly are up against both a Ministry of Truth in the national media (which exists to promote Democrats and the Left at all costs) and a garden of Tokyo Roses in our own ranks (who believe the path to career advancement is writing subtly negative articles about Romney might still having a chance to win this! even while Romney is clear very much winning this because these guys know the Left and Minitru like when they do this which is like them banking chits for future redemption in the form of better paying gigs on bigger sites that have more prestige for themselves). So, weve unfortunately got nonstop propaganda aimed at us to benefit Obama while at the same time we need to be aware that not every writer on conservative sites can be trusted to write free of a subtle pro-Obama agenda.
You need to take charge of your own information, folks.
Keep asking yourself if Democrats behavior really seems like people who think they are going to win.
* Why on Earth have wealthy bankers bought a new home for the Obamas in Hawaii that will be occupied in January 2013 if these people think the Obamas will win?
* Why is the fundraising for the Barack Obama Center for Social Justice starting now and not years down the road?
* Why is Walt Disney World already at work on a Mitt Romney figure for its Hall of Presidents when Disney didnt make one this early for Dole in 1996 or for either Bush or Gore at this point in 2000 (and never bothered to start one for Kerry or John McCain, either)?
* Why was Gloria Allred dispatched to make a desperate attempt at attacking Mitt Romney yesterday when that blew up in her face?
* Why are Democrats so eager to push any crazy thing they can think of for attention be it Big Bird, Binders of Women, or the game Battleship and not instead telling Americans what Barack Obama would do in his second term that people would enjoy or appreciate hearing?
* Why is Nancy Pelosi preparing to abdicate her remaining power willingly and begin her own retirement plans to Vultures Nest when previously shed bragged that shed be restored as Speaker soon?
None of the above makes any sense if you listen to Allahpundit, Erick Erikson, or Ben Shapiro and believe that theres only a chance Romney could win still win this. Time to prune the Tokyo Roses, folks, because this race is actually all about how big Mitt Romneys win is going to be not whether Romney can win it as these fools keep saying.
Democrats just dont behave the way they are currently behaving when they know they are going to win; they only act this way when they see they will lose and are preparing to pick up the pieces to rebuild starting November 7th.
I hope you can see this and if not chime in below and tell me whats still not clear to you and we can work through this. But, honestly, for your own emotional and mental health you need to take a long hard look at everything thats happening and you really need to start calling out the supposedly conservative writers who are deliberately putting out negative-tinged columns on this election because I truly believe at the very least that Allahpundit, Erick Erikson, and Ben Shapiro are at least marginally working on behalf of the Left to mess with your heads and prevent you from seeing the obvious: that Barack Obama is losing and Democrats have now given up any hope of his pulling a miraculous victory at this point.

Maybe after the election, the witch Pelosi will retire and ride her broom back to California.
If she rides it back to Los Angeles, I hope it breaks over Utah.
What color prison cell curtains should she pick ? pink or gray ?
I suspected this, so the Senate has been my emphasis.
I wonder how we’re doing there? A simple majority would be enough for now, although I would like a super-majority.
Irrational and idiotic.
Like this latest Obama campaign ad.
Never-mind. I found it.
Outstanding! But, I’d suggest that the “magical black man” in question is The Honorable Allen West.
Hillbuzz has a PS about Allen West
“PS Please make Congressman Allen West either your Secretary of Defense or Secretary of State because he is beyond awesome and is a future president himself. I am grateful to you for picking Mr. Ryan as your VP because he is a future president as well so now please position Congressman West for his own rendezvous with destiny too.”
Awesome op ed from Hillbuzz!
That was an interesting tidbit!
Kevin Dujan knows Chicago and he’s pretty wise about politics too.
They thought that 2008 reflected a permanent shift. Fortunately, major shifts don't happen that quickly. 2008 may go down as a turning point, but the ship is still right of center.
If Romney doesn’t pick/position West for higher office, it’ll be a serious mistake. SOD works for me, I don’t see him as SOS and that’s not a negative, doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work. I just hope Romney does the right thing with West because West’s a potential Superstar.
Blast! I had just snagged the img src for that book!
That old b!tch rides a Hoover, not a broom!
i never read tea leaves, polls, prognosticators, or the entrails of political pundits during an election
they are no better than crystal balls and ought to be ignored
if you want to get excited about a candidate then get excited for what you know and not because of what anyone is predicting
I would rather GOPers woke up election day with a scared, angry, excited and vengeful mood than a condfident one
it should be one of “no one stay home” not “oh well it’s over”
maybe someone at Hillbuzz prefers to make their own analysis proven wrong on election day, as they look back at the exit polls and ask themselves “what happened to all those GOPers I knew were going to vote”
wake up people!!!!!!!, NOW is not the time to celebrate
How about gunny sacks as she does not deserves any color in the curtains.
Good op ed
I want the dems humiliated. I want a historical defeat so huge that it will be deeply implanted in the American democrat mindset that socialism is a losing agenda. That socialized medicine is a new “third-rail”.
I want those who voted for Obama in 2008 on the sole basis of his skin color (and I cannot think of another reason to vote for him) to realize that reverse-racism is still racism.
I want a robust and immediate post-election economic recovery that will put Keynsian economics to rest forever.
I could read this article over and over and over again.
I don’t think West would be good for SOS.
Secretary of Defense is it.
But, Romney has a lot of well qualified military supporters backing him.
I agree that we cannot rest until Zero is out of office but what the pundit wrote does have some very interesting point, no?
I have been praying for God to take Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Biden, and a slew of other miscreant non-patriots out, to keep them from further causing harm. However He decides to do it is fine. We need them to be gone.
And there truly is a God. He slammed that door so nicely in Gloria Allred’s face that I know it had to sting. WooHoo!
The Romney election is a red herring. It is ion the bag for Romney. The blood and guts will occur in the fight for the senate and what happens between between Nov-January 13. This is where the real fight is and most people on our side don’t get this.
Why is it that when I read about the Barack Obama Center for Social Justice I picture a boarded up liquor store on Chicago’s West Side?
“but what the pundit wrote does have some very interesting point, no?”
if I were that pundit, I would have saved my gleeful expectations, put them in the vault with todays date on them (so I could say “I knew it”) and then tell everyone “it’s awfully dam close but we have a chance, a good chance, if all of us, ALL of us, just do our duty on election day”
actually, when I hear things like what the pundit wrote, I get angry; I just see lines of complacent, over-confident voters in the lines at the supermarket not the polls
do I care how smart the pundit is, or thinks he is? No.
does he make me more confident?
he makes me believe he will make too many people complacent; more than he realizes; and that does not make me confident
I think the dems/facists/comunist/thugs are going to have a hangover after this election and scratch their heads going “What the hell just happened?” ROTFLMAO!!!!!!
There is little chance that the Colonel will be in either of those posts. I don’t even know if he would think himself eligible for them. He still needs a lot of seasoning and has never been an executive has he?
Those posts would take him away from speaking out as he wishes too, which reduces his ability to educate other Blacks on a daily basis.
Not going to happen. West has one term in the House and is not a large enough figure (only here) to command any such job. I doubt he would even want an executive position at this time.
We have only been seeing Half-assed Keynesian economics, nothing Keynes himself would recommend.
If they ever bring back the House Committee on Un-American Activities, West should be chairman. They can start by investigating the Mainstream Media.
Dems going down big indeed. 15 more house seats, the senate, and Obama down by 7 points.
I think it is at Pulaski and Madison.
Don’t be silly, there is not one person here who is going to not vote or not do as much as planned to get this Disaster out of office.
Every piece of positive news just makes us more determined to ensure its accuracy.
Allen West would not be eligible for SecDef until 2014. He left the Army in 2004. By law, ten years must pass before anyone who was in the military can be SecDef. I do not know if that also applies to any Deputy Secretary or Undersecretary positions within DoD.
Alexander Hamilton would be proud of his paper.
Crow if it doesn’t happen, he’s more qualified for a cabinet position in a Romney administration than the current POTUS was for his office. Don’t bother me with your anti-West diatribes arrogantsob/slob.
That is too beautiful an idea to even conceive.
Don’t be a fool, you won’t get any “anti-West diatribes” or anything else from me. Don’t confuse my rejection of YOUR idea to be against West in any way.
The Disaster was more “qualified” than West, he had served several terms in the Illinois legislature and most of a US Senate term. This was nowhere close to sufficient experience but is more than one term in the House.
From what I have heard of West’s military career he was more of a fighter than an executive. That is where we need him.
