2014: Democrats’ Disaster?
National Review ^ | December 27, 2013 | John Fund

Posted on 12/27/2013 9:41:38 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

If a panic button existed in the offices of vulnerable Democrats in Congress right now, they might be pressing it so often it wouldn’t have time to reset.

A new CNN poll this week found that support for Obamacare is down to an all-time low of 35 percent. That helps explain the dramatic partisan reversal in another question CNN asked — about which party respondents would vote for in their congressional district. Two months ago, Democrats had a 50–42 percent lead on that critical “generic ballot” question. Now, Republicans have taken a 49–44 lead. Other private polls taken in the last few days confirm the trend of the CNN poll.

[snip]

What worries Democrats the most is that their base voters will be unenthusiastic about voting in a year when President Obama isn’t himself on the ballot. The CNN poll has some evidence backing up that fear. It finds that only 22 percent of Democrats are currently extremely or very enthusiastic about voting. At the same time, 36 percent of Republicans can’t wait to find a polling booth and register their discontent.

President Obama is, as of now, a drag on Democratic candidates. A full 55 percent of adults say they are more likely to vote for a congressional candidate who opposes Obama than for one who backs his program.

Numbers like that can have a real impact in swing states. Take Colorado, which was a key to Obama’s victory in 2012 when he won it with 51.5 percent of the vote. But this month’s Quinnipiac poll found Obama’s approval in the state at just 36 percent. That has helped make Democratic senator Mark Udall’s seat competitive. His “deserves re-election” number has tumbled down to 41 percent, with 47 percent now saying he doesn’t deserve a second term.....

John Fund is well-known for his research and publications on vote fraud.

But for some reason he doesn’t account for the millions who are granted amnesty will be immediately registered to vote regardless of citizenship.

Amnesty is Obama’s trump card.

The fact that even NPR, this morning, was discussing how the 2014 election is gonna be a bad one for the Democrats is significant.

Interesting, even in reporting it, their main thrust was, “yeah, we (oops, I mean the democrats) are gonna get their buts kicked in 2014, but it will be reversed and more in 2016.

That also was very telling.

Democrats will lose significantly in the RED states....US Senate seats in places like SD, MT, AK, AR, LA,WV, NC.

If strong candidates are recruited the GOP could also pick up US Senate seats in swing states like IA, VA, NH, CO.

If the stars are aligned properly even a few US Senate seats in blue states like MI, MN, OR, could land in GOP hands.

Problem is that generic polls do not translate well into results for specific races plus the next round of bad news for Obamacare has been shuffled back to 2015. Only Heaven knows what other events that may shape the election will occur in the next elven months.

Every last RAT up for election in the Senate was the 60th vote for owebamacare.

They may be right. The minute the GOP takes over the Senate, Janet Yellen will pull the plug on QE and Great Depression 2.1 will commence. EEEEEEEVIL Republicans will of course be blamed.

Well, yeah, but even if representatives of the Democratic [sic] party lose, we can count on the Vichy Republicans to pass 99% of their agenda, anyway.

All this excitement is being generated for what???

The victory of Boehner and Ryan’s “budget deal” Republicans in 2014 to what end.

A lot of football game emotions here that will change nothing about government getting bigger, spending and debt going up and taxes increasing.

This country needs to move in a real conservative direction and that isn’t going to happen unless all Republican Senators are like Ted Cruz and all Republican House members are like Justin Amash or Louie Gohmert.

People like those need to win the primaries ahead and if they don’t, there’s not much to be voting on other than emotions in November when the choice is between RINO’s and Dem’s.

"The common and continual mischief of the spirit of Party is sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it." G. Washington

"Tyranny is always better organized than freedom...the strength and power of despotism consists wholly in the fear of resistance." -- Thomas Paine

"..it does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.." --Samuel Adams

My reason for leading with these 3 quotations will become clear as you watch the maddening 20+minute video at the link below.  It will most likely cause you to recoil and shout "bulls**t", "that CAN'T be true", "these guys are NUTS," "I LOVED Bush. Why would he have been involved in this stuff," etc., etc...  The answer to that last one is simple: He -- as have been so, so many of the others -- was either BORN into it, tapped later in life to become part of it, the scam pays VERY, VERY well (both emotionally and monetarily) and they wish to continue breathing!  Think JFK for that last one.

Then you will ask the same question I ask myself when more of this information pops up: How is it that guys like Jones and others are not "taken out" for trying to blow the lid off this -- and there's no other word that works here -- conspiracy?  Your reaction to this information is a micro expression of why it continues:  You either don't BELIEVE it (cognitive dissonance) and/or think to yourself that it's so BIG that there's no way any sort of critical mass could be assembled to do anything about it so WHY BOTHER even thinking about it further.

Then there's the "conspiracy's" understanding that their control of the mass media prevents any but a small fraction of the people around you from even HEARING any of this.

Add to that the growing numbers of dumbed down suckers at the government teat and you have your answer.  We have allowed the main actors in this treacherous, treasonous theater to bring the process to the level where they really don't CARE if we know about it as we will do nothing substantive to stop them.

If you remember the film "The Manchurian Candidate" you now know where we are.  Except this time OUR "candidate" came to us from Chicago (but you can insert a number of place names here).  The bad news is that given our current trend, there's less and less difference between Manchuria and Chicago every day.

The REALLY BAD news is that if something isn't done to arrest that process, it is spreading to the entire nation.

Might want to start preparing an answer to a question your kids and grandkids will ask you: What was freedom like?

If I were a Republican running for office, my political ads would be, “Two years ago, the Democrats passed Obamacare and joked that they hadn’t even read it. The joke was on you. Don’t let them get away with it. Vote for ______________, Republican.”

The Senate is the most important house to capture. With six year terms, those who are elected will “transcend” the next presidential election. A GOP conservative Senate could significantly help a Republican president and thwart a RAT.

Generic polls like this actually bode well for the GOP.

If most swing states the Congressional districts are gerrymandered so that the Democratic base is concentrated in the urban rat-holes that have been their strongholds for years. As a result of this, even heavily Democratic states have a lot of Republicans in Congress.

Take New Jersey, for example. This is one of the most liberal states in the U.S., hasn't had a Republican Senator in decades, and hasn't voted for a Republican presidential candidate since the 1980s. And yet exactly half of the 12 House districts are held by Republicans. The typical House election results in New Jersey will have a Democrat win the densely-populated urban toilets by an 80%-20% margin, a Republican wins the sparsely-populated rural areas by an 80%-20% margin, and the suburbs become the swing areas for elections. So if a generic poll shows a slight Republican edge, this means there is a major shift toward the GOP in the suburban "swing" areas.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi told a conference call with reporters this week that the bill she once said had to be passed “so that you can find out what is in it” was “worth the trouble, it’s going to be a glorious thing.” She insisted it would help Democrats pick up House seats next year.

I did not know this. I was under the impression that John Boehner was the Speaker of the House since the 2010 elections. I do understand how John Fund could be confused, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between Pelosi and Boehner.

To: All
The persistent Democrat drumbeat--- "keep your plan" ---- is still ringing in our ears---as the historic straight Dem party-line vote for Obamacare commenced.

INCONVENIENT FACTOID As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act:

OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.”

Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

DEMOCRATS CHIME IN:

SEN. HARRY REID (D-Nev.): “In fact, one of our core principles is that if you like the health care you have, you can keep it.” (Sen. Reid, Congressional Record, S.8642, 8/3/09)

SEN. RICHARD DURBIN: “We believe — and we stand by this — if you like your current health insurance plan, you will be able to keep it, plain and simple, straightforward.” (Sen. Durbin, Congressional Record, S.6401, 6/10/09)

SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): “If you like your insurance, you keep it.” (U.S. Senate, Finance Committee, Bill Mark-Up, 9/29/09)

SEN. PATTY MURRAY (D-Wash.): “Again, if you like what you have, you will be able to keep it. Let me say this again: If you like what you have, when our legislation is passed and signed by the President, you will be able to keep it.” (Sen. Murray, Congressional Record, S.6400, 6/10/09)

SEN. MAX BAUCUS (D-Mont.): “That is why one of the central promises of health care reform has been and is: If you like what you have, you can keep it. That is critically important. If a person has a plan, and he or she likes it, he or she can keep it.” (Sen. Baucus, Congressional Record, S.7676, 9/29/10)

SEN. TOM HARKIN (D-Iowa): “One of the things we put in the health care bill when we designed it was the protection for consumers to keep the plan they have if they like it; thus, the term ‘grandfathered plans.’ If you have a plan you like — existing policies — you can keep them. … we said, if you like a plan, you get to keep it, and you can grandfather it in.” (Sen. Harkin, Congressional Record, S.7675-6, 9/29/10)

THEN-REP. TAMMY BALDWIN (D-Wis.): “Under the bill, if you like the insurance you have now, you may keep it and it will improve.” (Rep. Baldwin, Press Release, 3/18/10)

SEN. MARK BEGICH (D-Alaska): “If you got a doctor now, you got a medical professional you want, you get to keep that. If you have an insurance program or a health care policy you want of ideas, make sure you keep it. That you can keep who you want.” (Sen. Begich, Townhall Event, 7/27/09)

SEN. MICHAEL BENNET (D-Colo.): “We should begin with a basic principle: if you have coverage and you like it, you can keep it. If you have your doctor, and you like him or her, you should be able to keep them as well. We will not take that choice away from you.” (Sen. Bennet, Press Release, 6/11/09)

SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D-Calif.): “So we Democrats want people to be able to keep the health care they have. And the answer to that is choice of plans. And in the exchange, we’re going to have lots of different plans, and people will be able to keep the health care coverage they need and they want.” (Sen. Boxer, Press Release, 2/8/11)

SEN. SHERROD BROWN (D-Ohio): “Our Democrat bill says if you have health insurance and you like it, you can keep it…”(Sen. Brown, Congressional Record, S.12612, 12/7/09)

SEN. BEN CARDIN (D-Md.): “For the people of Maryland, this bill will provide a rational way in which they can maintain their existing coverage…” (Sen. Cardin, Congressional Record, S.13798, 12/23/09)

SEN. BOB CASEY (D-Pa.): “I also believe this Democrat legislation and the bill we are going to send to President Obama this fall will also have secure choices. If you like what you have, you like the plan you have, you can keep it. It is not going to change.” (Sen. Casey, Congressional Record, S.8070, 7/24/09)

SEN. KAY HAGAN (D-N.C.): ‘People who have insurance they’re happy with can keep it’ “We need to support the private insurance industry so that people who have insurance they’re happy with can keep it while also providing a backstop option for people without access to affordable coverage.” (“Republicans Vent As Other Compromise Plans Get Aired,” National Journal’s Congress Daily, 6/18/09)

SEN. MARY LANDRIEU (D-La.): “If you like the insurance that you have, you’ll be able to keep it.” (MSNBC’s Hardball, 12/16/09)

SEN. PAT LEAHY (D-Vt.): “[I]f you like the insurance you now have, keep the insurance you have.” (CNN’s “Newsroom,” 10/22/09)

SEN. BOB MENENDEZ (D-N.J.): “If you like what you have, you get to keep it” “Menendez is a member of the Senate Finance Committee, which is expected to release a bill later this week. He stressed that consumers who are satisfied with their plans won’t have to change. ‘If you like what you have, you get to keep it,’ he said.” (“Health Care Plan Would Help N.J., Menendez Says,” The Record, 6/19/09)

SEN. JEFF MERKLEY (D-Oreg.): “[E]nsuring that those who like their insurance get to keep it” “The HELP Committee bill sets forward a historic Democrat plan that will, for the first time in American history, give every American access to affordable health coverage, reduce costs, and increase choice, while ensuring that those who like their insurance get to keep it.” (Sen. Merkley, Press Release, 7/15/09)

SEN. BARBARA MIKULSKI (D-Md.): “It means that if you like the insurance you have now, you can keep it.” (Sen. Mikulski, Press Release, 12/24/09)

SEN. JAY ROCKEFELLER (D-W.Va.): “I want people to know, the President’s promise that if you like the coverage you have today you can keep it is a pledge we intend to keep.” (U.S. Senate, Finance Committee, Hearing, 9/23/09)

SEN. JACK REED (D-R.I.): “If you like the insurance you have, you can choose to keep it.” (Sen. Reed, Town Hall Event, 6/25/09)

SEN. BERNIE SANDERS (I-Vt.): “‘If you have coverage you like, you can keep it,’ says Sen. Sanders.” (“Sick And Wrong,” Rolling Stone, 4/5/10)

SEN. JEANNE SHAHEEN (D-N.H.): ‘if you have health coverage that you like, you get to keep it’ “My understanding … is that … if you have health coverage that you like you can keep it. As I said, you may have missed my remarks at the beginning of the call, but one of the things I that I said as a requirement that I have for supporting a Democrat bill is that if you have health coverage that you like you should be able to keep that. …under every scenario that I’ve seen, if you have health coverage that you like, you get to keep it.” (Sen. Shaheen, “Health Care Questions From Across New Hampshire,” Accessed 11/13/13)

SEN. DEBBIE STABENOW (D-Mich.): “As someone who has a large number of large employers in my state, one of the things I appreciate about the Democrat chairman’s remark is — is the grandfathering provisions, the fact that the people in my state, 60 percent of whom have insurance, are going to be able to keep it. And Mr. Chairman, I appreciate that. That’s a strong commitment. It’s clear in the bill … I appreciate the strong commitment on your part and the president to make sure that if you have your insurance you can keep it. That’s the bottom line for me.” (U.S. Senate, Finance Committee, Bill Mark-Up, 9/24/09)

SEN. JON TESTER (D-Mont.): “‘If you like your coverage, you’ll be able to keep it,’ Tester said, adding that if Medicare changes, it will only become stronger”. (“Tester In Baker To Discuss Health Care,” The Fallon County Times, 11/20/09)

SEN. TOM UDALL (D-N.Mex.): “Some worried reform would alter their current coverage. It won’t. If you like your current plan, you can keep it.” (“What I Learned: About Health Care Reform This Summer, By Your Lawmakers In Congress,” Albuquerque Journal, 9/8/09)

SEN. SHELDON WHITEHOUSE (D-R.I.): “..it honors President Obama’s programs and the promise of all of the Presidential candidates that if you like the plan you have, you get to keep it. You are not forced out of anything.” (Sen. Whitehouse, Congressional Record, S.8668, 8/3/09)

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) the 60th vote on Obamacare: "people who are happy with their current plan, wouldn't need to change it."

I’ve had instances where I copied something from a web page and it doesn’t “take,” and whatever was previously on my clipboard gets pasted. Sometimes you have to do it twice.

It’s like that old Steven Wright joke - “I bought some batteries, but they weren’t included, so I had to buy them again.”

No but Reagan proved that with the right approach and presenting our Conservative case in a concise and easy to understand manner... even the “stupid” can be educated. Reagan was successful because he truly believed in what we believe in... today’s gop/e leadership believes in power and wealth at any cost and by any means needed.

Excellent post.

You are so right.

Now is the time to fight (not just November 2014), for the reasons you state.

Support the Senate Conservatives Fund, Madison Project, Club for Growth, and FreedomWorks and replace Big Government Republicans with conservatives.

For those conservatives challenging weak-kneed Republicans who haven’t yet been backed by any SuperPacs, donate directly to Joe Carr in Tennessee, Lee Bright in South Carolina, and Greg Brannon in North Carolina.
