Skip to comments.Democrats hope GOP chaos in fall will help them win back House
Posted on 08/23/2013 7:26:34 PM PDT by Innovative
Democrats are banking that a chaotic autumn will convince voters the GOP is damaging the economy and help their party pick up House seats in 2014.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has been pushing the chaos theme, arguing House Republicans are willing to shut down the government and injure the nations credit in order to win ideological battles in Washington.
It is intended to highlight what Democrats believe are a series of GOP blunders that stem from the partys Tea Party-fueled conservative wing.
A major focus will be the push by some conservatives to force a government shutdown unless the White House agrees to defund ObamaCare.

Not bloody likely.
Exactly! It's not going to happen with this current House leadership. John Boehner should have been gone long ago.
Whoever coined the phrase: “Republicans are the Stupid party and Democrats are the Evil party” is being proven right again and again...
I think that we will lose the house.
We need another Newt Gingrich, who united Republicans, had a plan and succeeded in taking back the House from the Democrats after 40 years of Dem control.
The Republicans hope the same thing.
Hopefully the demoncrats take the House. Why settle for neo-marxist-lite.
’ Let it Burn ‘
Was watching the Scott Brown RINO puke fest before I turned it of before. Subbing for O’Really.
Most Washington Republicans love being the minority party. All the Perks, None of the Responsibility. Nice work if you can get it.
The Republicans haven’t had a message in years except that “Conservatives” are bad.
Chaos is the wrong c word.
Cowardice is the word they are looking for.
Even if the Pubs tried to control the message...the msm will not report their side.
It’s one of those “if a tree falls in the woods” things.
We the People should throw all the bums out, Democrats and Republicans, and elect some Americans.
We do have the power to do that.
All that is missing so far is the will.
Not one constructive response or idea, the “Stupid Party” indeed.
Dumb voters are the Marxist’s base.
If amnesty passes the House will be overwhelmingly democrat after 2014.
Boehner can go back to crying and golfing with Obama.
Ryan can go ice fishing with his illegal alien friends.
Cantor and Goodlatte can give graduation speeches in Spanish at once-American universities.
All Republicans should step down from office, all taxpayers and the evil rich quit working and lay around doing nothing. Let's see how far they get without us.
America looks more and more like "Atlas Shrugged". Ayn Rand was a prophet.
Three words will prevent them from winning: Speaker Pelosi returns.
Immigration will win the House back for the Dems. The GOP, the Stupid Party, should never have let this issue get out of the Senate. I am staying home in 2014 if the Reps pass any immigration bill out of the House.
Praying Psalms 58 and 59 on all of them. God, not I, will decide what is appropriate.
You think wrong, them gaining seats at all (like the 5 the rats gained in 1998) is very unlikely, to actually gain a majority would be unprecedented in modern history. There is no need for hysterics.
There they go again. If anybody is going to shut down the gvt, it will be nobama. The pubs in the house don't have the wherewithal to shut it down, but nobama does.
Bump, precisely, amen.
The last I read..Reid would not sent the Senate bill to the House.
Has something happened? I thought they were all on vaycay...and hoping they would stay there....for a really long time.
I do agree, if immigration passes (I fear it will) we will lose the House. And any future elections. I have never cared for cooked goose...in any form.
Wow, the reporting here is sooooo bad.
Conservatives ARE NOT pushing a shut down.
They want to put together a CR that includes normal gvt funding, but does not include funding for nobamacare. If nobama vetoes the CR, HE will be the one cancelling the gvt funding and causing the shut down.
You F’n rat traitors best find a real deep hole to crawl in.
Obama and Holder are publicly speaking about their plan of the week that are just more smokescreen distractions to divert attention away from the incompetent manner Obama has handled his day job.
The best indicator of a PHONY ADMINISTRATION is the number of its REAL SCANDALS.
Commie Tyrant Obamas current talking points are thus smokescreen distractions for the products of Obamas first 4 years in office:
* Refusal to close US Southern Border to Mexican illegal alien invaders
* No known un-forged records of Place of Birth
* No known un-forged records of University grades
* Benghazi Massacre
* Dereliction of Duty as CIC during Benghazi Massacre
* Cover up of Benghazi Massacre
* Destruction of Seal Team Six
* Cover up of Fast and Furious murder of US Border Agent by Exec. Order
* IRS-Obamacare Commune Death Grip on Wealth and Health
* NSA-Gestapo Death Grip on all citizens communications
* Use of Courts against News Media
* Use of Supreme Court to install Un-Constitutional Obamacare Tax
* Destruction of the US Coal Industry
* Refusal to permit XL Pipeline construction
* Trillion Dollar a year Federal Overspending
* Monthly violations of the US Constitution by Obama
* Use of Exec. Orders to bypass Congress.
REPLACE sniveling coward Speaker Boehner with a FIGHTER!
It is time to IMPEACH Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro.
Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.
Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?
Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?
Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?
The main thing that Speaker Boehner is afraid of is being blamed for doing his job.
Speaker Boehners job now is to shut down the NON-ESSENTIAL parts of the US Federal Government until Obamacare is ABOLISHED, however long that takes.
If they get the House and retain the Senate with 0bama in office, you might as well sell out your US assets and burn your passport on the way out, because America as a constitutional representative republic will be over for good. It’s the end of the American experiment.
“We need another Newt Gingrich, who united Republicans, had a plan and succeeded in taking back the House from the Democrats after 40 years of Dem control.”
Are you talking about Newt 1.0, or Newt 2.0 who says that gay marriage is the way of the future?
‘’Atlas Shrugged’’ is way above the intellect of the American people, but they seem to have little problems following complicated plots and voluminous characters in films and television series.
You just never know which Newt will show up at any given time.
This needs to be corrected. It’s the media who is raising the flag that the GOP is going to shut down the government and thus bring the house back under democrap control. Of course the democraps are happy the media is doing it for them.
I don’t believe they believe it will hurt the republicans. If they did they’d be pushing them to go ahead and shut everything down. Republicans never had time to learn the lesson of BR Rabbit.
The Rats will keep the Senate and win back the House. With each passing day that is becoming clearer to me. I can only hope that I am mistaken, but nothing has happened that would indicate it.
The Sheep seem to think that the Slaughter House is a Castle on a hill. How this Country could go from Reagan to Obama in less than thirty years is simply astounding to me.
The only answer for those of us who oppose Elected Tyranny is non-compliance, as much as that can be accomplished in today’s NSA Society.
So why do we think reform will emerge from the institutions and people who profit so handsomely from the system they corrupted?
It is time to make an end run around the consolidated national government. The framers gave us an out. It is an Article V state amendment convention.
The RATS are not going to win the House unless Boehner caves on immigration.
And, yes, the Senate GOP allowing ANY immigration vote to occur was a selfish, nasty, and stupid thing to do to their House brethren. The Senate GOP had the votes to filibuster the entire monstrosity and should have told the MSM and this lawless administration to go to Hell.
And when that fails?
Democrats are banking that a chaotic autumn will convince voters the GOP is damaging the economyThe Republican Party can run on dropping gasoline prices due to fracking, repeal of Obamacare, and the foreign policy disasters of Zero's regime, and take both houses and the presidency.
Though I support several amendments to the existing Constitution, far more dire than the need to make those amendments is our need for representatives who will consistently keep their sacred oath to support and defend the Constitution we’ve already got.
I have no confidence in the outcome of any convention to amend the Constitution. Too much ignorance of the nature and character of the document out there right now. Even Levin can’t get it right, in my opinion, and he’s better than most.
No. First things first: elect men and women of understanding, those who will keep the first obligations of their oath to support and defend the Constitution, as is, and THEN, when the time is right, we can tweak the document appropriately.
History has shown since then, that waiting for superman is a losing attitude.
You tell me.
It did. And the first step in returning to it is by choosing only representatives who understand this, and rejecting all others.
waiting for superman is a losing attitude
Sure is. I never counsel that, ever.
My advice is to return to principle.
They just might win it.
If House Republicans let any form of ObamaCare or Amnesty pass, I will never vote Republican again.
I've been threatening to stay home on election day since Richard “RINO” Nixon ran for a second term in 1972.
I always cave.
I always vote a straight GOP ticket.
2014 is make or break for me.
I'm tired of fighting the GOP when we ought to be fighting the Democrats!
