Meet the haters.
Were talking about the voters whove had it with all Washington politicians: President Obama, congressional Republicans and congressional Democrats. Despite their distaste for, well, everyone, when push comes to shove, these voters are lining up squarely behind GOP candidates for Congress.
Its encouraging news for a Republican Party eyeing midterm elections now only about 11 months away. Why? Because it suggests the image problems the partys congressional members have experienced which have been worse than those suffered by Obama or congressional Democrats dont translate to a death knell at the ballot box.
Seventy-two percent of voters who disapprove of the job Obama, congressional Democrats and congressional Republicans are doing say theyd vote for the GOP candidate for U.S. House in their district if the election were held today, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday. Just 14 percent say theyd vote for the Democrat.

If the Republicans can’t come up with conservative candidates, expect more people to stay home.
So sayeth the Washington Compost.
BUT, what they said flies in the face of reality. In the Primary, RINO season is truly OPEN, and there is no bag limit. Past that? It is up to the GOPe. If they want a real war, they can certainly have one. I am a loyal GOP voter. Have been all my life. But I know a despot when I see one, I can smell them. Any am direct in telling them what I think.
No, no I'm not. I'm trying to get Cornyn primaried and regardless of how that works out, I'm not voting for Cornyn ever again.
> Just 14 percent say theyd vote for the Democrat.
Translation: Wahhhhhhhhhhhh! Mommy!
They have a point. I hate Sean Sullivan, Scott Clement and the Washington Post.
Besides "who else they gonna vote for?"
Birth of Obamacare overshadowed GOPs negatives.
All the haters I ever see are Democrats
Haters, meet the Haters!
There a page right out of his-tor-y.
>> these voters are lining up squarely behind GOP candidates for Congress <<
Yeah, I think the Washington Compost has a little trouble with terminology, “conventional wisdom” and their agenda-driven dfalse narrative.
The RATagandists are trying to persuade the public that the TEAparty is dead, and that anyone running under a Republican brand should be labelled as GOP.
The WaPo would of course rather help RATs than RINOs, but when TEApublicans enter the conversation...RINOS RULE!
The republicans don't feel they need to waste energy earning votes.
Besides "who else they gonna vote for?"
Waste my vote on the Whigs? Not bluiddy likely!
You mean the KKK, the Neo-Nazis, the Skinheads, the Segregationists, the Union-Thugs, the militant vegetarians...all traditional RATs are going to vote Republican? What about the Mooselimbs?
Ah yes, but it's 11 months to the election (roughly), and Obamacare is NOT going to be getting any easier to swallow.
Sean and Scott — projecting hatred courtesy of WaPo.
None of the above will win hands down.
If amnesty is passed next year, and I believe it will be, voting is a waste of time. The country is dying and giving birth to an new banana republic ruled by despots and their corporate collaborators and nothing short of revolution can save it. BTW revolution is useless given the growing hostility to civilians in the military and police leadership. They will happily kill any one open revolt.
We will all be slaves soon
I don’t vote Republican. I vote Conservative.
Don't count on it. If they are not staunchly conservative I won't vote for them.
Well, the race card wasn’t working.
So let’s try the hate card.
ONLY IF WE GET SOME DECENT CANDIDATES THROUGH THE PRIMARIES!!!
I must say that I wonder how we will maybe see a conservative nominee again, without a party machine willing to build one and back one.
No organized discussion is happening yet concerning the balcanized primary system that sets up a majority of conservative candidates, injects only one Establishment “moderate”, allowing only the super funded, super endorsed “moderate” to break out.
The crickets we hear says not much will change but the number of sanctioned debates and no outright Lefty moderators. I hope that’s enough.
Also, the Tea Party with no organization, is unlikely to play the Establishment game, where we are willing to agree to coalesce around one or even two conservatives, EARLY. Our money, endorsements and support is divided against the house again, squabbling.
So if you disapprove of the job that the president and Congress are doing, that makes you a “hater”? How convenient for incumbents if they can get the media to psychoanalyze their critics.
Yep, the Tea Party are the only ones offering to work on our problems.
It’s a great time for third parties too.
If there were a severe drug shortage even a Libertarian could get elected in 2014!
So all those people who say they hate Palin and hate Bush and hate Republicans and hate conservatives and hate bigots and hate the Koch brothers and hate the NRA and hate the 1% and hate televangelists are going to vote Republican? Who would’a thunk it?
“... expect more people to stay home.”
I don’t think many people will stay home in 2014; too many people are already getting hit in the pocketbook and people vote their pocketbook! Democrats are going to look like creamed peas.
True. But the left defines the word “hate” as anything they do not agree with.
Me, too! I despise Cornyn.
The Washington Post is a hater organization. They just hate a different group...
If these voters will vote Republican, anyway. Think how much better their chances would be IF the GOP would actually stand up and fight for once!
(I don’t put much faith in Paul Ryan, but if the GOP actually does fight and gain major concessions on the debt ceiling, then that’ll be step 1).
DO YOU want Nancy Pelosi as speaker again?? Because if not, primaries are SADLY our only options-here’s to hoping that they make an impact in 2014!!
“Haters Gonna Hate”
You know what I hate?
White guys who use Ebonics.
Dems are buried under a political avalanche of toxic O/Care debris...it keeps spilling out, fouling the political air.
There is no political slogan more powerful than this: "Obamcare is the only legislation in political history passed on a straight party-line Democrat vote."
Plus the media laid the Top Three Lies Of The Year at the WH door...b-i-g lies ....ALL connected to Obamacare, all negatively affecting millions of American voters.
Conman Boobamba figured he could get away w/ repeated lies about O/care---like keeping your plan, and your doctor.
But the conniver showed his true colors when he said enrollees would "save $2500"....THE biggest line a sitting president ever fed to the American people---which he knew not to be true (said as a re-election ploy---to regain power).
This is prolly the same line by which he duped gullible people on welfare, food stamps and SSI, conning them into believing they could payoff mortgages.
The Chicago conman----as "community organizer"..... even sued banks to get these subprime mtge disasters------the same banks he's now suing for "predator lending"---b/c they burdened the poor with mtges they can't possibly payoff.
Obamas 2008 verbatim debate statement was as follows: No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.
I believe Obama also said, "I never had sex with that woman."
OBAMA: "Mandela was my idol and mentor."
INTERPRETER "He never had sex with that woman."
The belly-laugh kicks in when you consider Obama threatened to destroy the Republican Party....and made calculated (possibly illegal) presidential moves to strengthen the Dem party.
"Wrongway Boobamba" screwed-up---he needs a new GPS system from Santa.
At the 2008 presidential debate in Nashville, Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted into the monumental fraud known as the “Affordable Care Act.” No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.

When and why did ‘hate’ become such an all encompassing bad thing?
I hate Sean Sullivan & Scott Clement. I hate the Washington Post. I hate Obamanation and the socialist pile this nation has become. I hate spineless GOP politicians and all the PC yes-men. I hate the fact that we seem to be willingly allowing the destruction of our culture/nation. I hate...
I’ll be voting for actual conservatives in the primary. If they don’t win, probably won’t be voting in the general. I’ll not give my approval for a party that is racing to destroy this country hand in hand with democrats. No more CINOs.
WTF is ths? R u on sum wrd wrd bgt or smthng?
DO YOU want Nancy Pelosi as speaker again??
Bonehead and the republicans authorized more spending than Miss Nancy and at least she has some balls and loyalty to her peeps. All the republicans offer is back stabbing drunkards.
And they both hate conservatives ...
flip a coin
Never forget you are dealing with people who have no connection to reality when you are dealing with liberals. They epitomize what is meant by such comic slogans as, “Stomp out Hate”, “I can’t Stand Intolerance”, etc. They preach about love and tolerance and all that but won’t really lift a finger to help anyone and literally talk about how they would like to see all conservatives killed. These people are nuts, plain and simple. If they ever realized that they are the exact opposite of what they keep telling themselves they are, they would have to commit suicide. It sounds weird to talk about half the country being crazy but I don’t think I am exaggerating.
According to the word coming from Chicago, Barry could say he never had sex with that woman and be telling the truth, unlike Slick Willy.
You are exactly right, We live in an age of insanity
You may have just coined a new word: "dfalse", as in "Democratic lies/lying/liars".
"I hate, therefore I am"? " ..... therefore I am, chordate"?
Thanks (although it was just a typo)
Now that you've brought it to my attention however, let me try a proper spelling "defalse" or D-false. I like the second one.
I'll use it in a sentence:
Although the facts are obvious, MSNBC persists with their D-false position.
