What will be the political fallout of the various scandals in which President Obama is ensnared? Chris Matthews thinks it will be huge.

Appearing on today's Morning Joe, Matthews mused that the IRS scandal alone would be worth 5-10 points to Republican candidates. He specifically mentioned Mitch McConnell, Tom Corbett and Ken Cuccinelli as Republicans whom the scandal would aid in their 2014 races.

For once Mr. Tinglelegs has it right.

We Tea Party folk will be crawling over broken glass to seek retribution at the ballot box.

If, and it’s a big if, the Pubs win control of the Senate in 2014 and maintain control of the House, could Obamacare still be repealed after its gone into full effect? The Pubs would WANT to do that in the first place. But could it be done?

Same with ole Howie Fineman. Has anyone noticed that Fineman now has a blue rinse in his beautiful steel gray locks? He looks like Quentin Crisp.

Must be veto proof or the reps grow a set (highly unlikely in both cases).

Tingles is clueless. He has no problem with the Zero’s actions, just that, once uncovered, it might have political fallout.

What a Maroon.

5-10 points?

Fix the voting machines accordingly and bring out the dead.

These Obama-suck ups are dazed and confused, hoping their abuser will change into a caring person.

Delusional liberals in denial all of them.

“...could Obamacare still be repealed after its gone into full effect...”
-
Any law passed by one congress “can” be repealed by another.
The question is not “can they?”; it is “will they?”.

Anything that government gives you; government can take away.
(government did not “give us” our “inalienable rights”; and can not take them from us)

This is textbook "abused spouse syndrome". No matter what Obismal does to the liberal media (and to this point he's objectively out-Nixoned Richard Nixon) they will continue to love him.

Old "tingle leg" will be tingling again shortly, I'm afraid.

Funny...where have I heard that before? That's right,October 2012.But the "true believers" fooled everyone...they weren't about to vote for *either* of the Commie atheists on the ballot.

Matthews is gonna PRAY for another hurricane in ‘14. After all, as he once gloated, the disaster put Obama in the White House.

Yes, and THAT is why the media refused to cover it before the election.

I think most politically active people voted. It was the squishy middle that did not like Romney’s personality or religion that swayed the election. Well, there was a lot of fraud too, but Robot Romney did not do himself any favors with his lackluster campaigning and chameleon-like flip-flops on matters of principle.

From the DNC-run media in America's playbook .....

When a scandal involves a Republican, the SCANDAL is the story. When a scandal involves a DemocRAT, HOW REPUBLICANS WILL USE the scandal to benefit them politically (i.e. POLITICIZE it) becomes the STORY.

What an A$$hole. A huge felony crime perpetrated on America, coordinated by someone in the current administration, and all he sees are political points? Someone needs to deport this idiot on the next cruise to nowhere.

Chris Mathews realizes that the 2014 midterms is going to be a replay of 2010.

Hey Chris!

Read Byron York’s column this morning!

When folk realized how much more intrusive the IRS will become, as the details of Obmacare unfold, you might up that IRS factor to 20% at the polls.

The 2014 midterms will dwarf 2010 — if Tea Party groups are ever allowed 501(c)(4) status, so that our GOTV efforts can compete with the Lib/Progs, whose tax exempt applications during 2009-2012 were approved within nine months, on average.

This IRS scandal blew the whole long dragged out process wide open, thanks in part to Fox News, talkradio, etc. I predict 2014 to make 2010 look small by comparision.

This is one of the rare times I hope Chrissy is dead-on right. Whether it will be or not will depend on how the fumble-prone GOP handles it.

Unless the Democrat Party marches down to the White House and gets Obama to resign, the Democrat Party will be massively defeated come the mid-term elections in 2014. It now or never, Democrats. You gave us this traitor and criminal...now you get rid of him, immediately!!

Someone needs to inform Tingles that it’s not 5 or 10 points we’re looking for (although that is likely anyway), it’s 5 or 10 years in prison for the perpetrators.
