Skip to comments.6 Signs a Republican Senate Takeover Is Within Reach
Posted on 01/29/2014 6:10:30 PM PST by SMGFan
Republican gains and President Obama's weakness have Democrats on their heels, preparing to fight for Senate seats they never thought they would have to defend and hoping that 2016 will give them a chance to win back the Senate if they lose it next year.

How will we notice the change?
And then Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski will become “independents” because “the party will have moved away from them” like Jim Jeffords, Arlen Specter, and Lincoln Chafee.
We need a heavy sweep like 1980 or 1994, to counter the moderates in the party who live to help the democrats.
Shamnesty trumps all.
I am reaching the point where I don’t care.
Did anyone read about the GOP(E) response by Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) to the State of the Coup? Don’t want to repeal ObamaCare? Didn’t mention Benghazi or Obama’s overt support of Al Qaeda in Syria? Didn’t condemn Obama’s intentions to govern by fiat?
Why the heck should I vote these wastes of skin?
We won’t. The GOPe will still push Leftist crap off on us complaining they don’t have a super-majority.
And so the Democrats will still rule the day, despite being in the minority. Works in the House constantly...
Ain’t gonna happen if the GOP pushes Illegal Alien Amnesty, and not ending ObamaCare.
Seems every RINOCrat publication keeps pushing a GOP takeover when the GOP is trying to commit political suicide
Republican bathrooms will no longer be obligated to be gender neutral and TG friendly.
Admittedly 'required' is the key word.
More legislation that the Rats support will go through.
Collins, Murkowski, or McCain will "reach across the aisle."
If the margin is very tight, I wouldn't be surprised to see them work out a deal to keep Harry Reid in the "majority leader" chair, even without a numerical majority. Collegiality and comity, my FRiends.
I wonder how much help the RAT Party is going to toss at Cornyn in the TEXAS Primary.
I'm not seriously studying any/all of the races. It's my gut feeling that there will be a weak turnout. The GOP will again bet on the lesser of two evils to work for them. I don't think it will this time.
I didn’t hear the GOP Establishment response to SOTU, but I did hear that it went over like a cold turd on a hot rock.
The official GOP response was pitiful. The GOP speech should directly respond to the BS in Obama’s speech. We don’t need a rehearsed “nicey nice aren’t I cute” low key uninspiring reply. We needed someone who can think quickly and is good at debating, maybe Ted Cruz. I was very disappointed in the Republican response.
“I didnt hear the GOP Establishment response to SOTU, but I did hear that it went over like a cold turd on a hot rock.’
Apt description. The woman should have donned an apron and walked on camera with a plate full of freshly-baked cookies. TG for Rand Paul and Mike Lee.
Actually, maybe having the GOPe turds “move forward on immigration,” could be a good thing, pushing the “Republican Pussies” who support the GOPe (along with the Indies) toward the TP candidates. It doesn’t mean a whole hell of a lot to have the GOP “take” the Senate as long as we have McConnell and the others of his ilk who are standing for election at the end of the day.
If the GOP wins a majority of seats, someone will switch parties again. You can bet on it.
The Pubbies institute a power sharing agreement with the RAT’s, in the interest of bi-partisanship.
Yeah, but WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!?
We won’t. It doesn’t matter. We don’t have the WH. Half the GOP are RINOs. They 100% lose the Senate back in 2016. Talk about a Pyrrhic victory.
She was all smiles and platitudes of "coming together on unemployment benefits, immigration," etc.
She's just the kind of GOPe that we conservatives love to despise for selling us out!
That is exactly why we must help support the Primary Challengers of McConnell, Graham and Cornyn. Get these RINOs out of office!
Two reasons that it will never happen: 1.The Democrat Party’s election stealing m.o. 2. The Republican Party’s lack of spine, backbone. courage, balls, and character.
Once the Rs push for illegal immigration any lead they have will dissipate like a snow flake in a July sun.
I saw Congresswoman McMorris Rogers' response live and wasn't particularly impressed. It was too long on her personal life story and too short on hard policy differences with Obama. The omissions that you mentioned, though, might be excused by the tight time restrictions on her.
Incidentally, there was an alternative Republican response by Sen. Mike Lee, which was more to the point.
F the GOP.
Yes, connect the dots.
Benghazi, Syria, Turkey, Egypt.
Evidence on Mohamed Mursis direct link to terror acts in Egypt (like lawless Obama)
Obama selected Morsi and pushed him into the Presidency of Egypt. Must have also tutored him in how to run a country. Note in the above article, he totally exceeded his constitutional authority repeatedly, not only released but pardoned known Terrorists, made laws up with the stroke of the pen.
When Morsi was removed by public demonstration and threat of civil war, then General Sissi and the military stepped in to avoid the war. Obama then cut off all aid to Egypt and threatened them to force them to put Morsi back in power. (Like he did in Honduras)
Incredible are the similarities between Obama and Morsi in Egpyt.
2 reasons it will happen:
Ted Cruz & Mike Lee
It won’t help him. Have you noticed the number of pre Primary adds he is running. And the lies he is telling trying to make himself sound like a Conservative.
We know what he is.
He will be primaried.
I think the usual milquetoast suckiness of the official “Republican response” is the reason that whatever tea party group is started doing a separate one.
Just more big gubmint with an r next to their names.
Cornyn has plagiarized Cruz’ actual action and attack in his ads.
...and one sign it won’t happen...AMMESTY! The base will stay home again. They aren’t about to sweep, they are about to commit suicide!
I know, but Lee, Cruz, et al, are NOT the GOP anymore...
If the House pubbies wanted a really good female speaker who’d take it to the Mahdi, they’d have chosen Marsha Blackburn (TN) who successfully led the patriotic resistance to a state income tax that was proposed by RINO gov. SUNDWUIST.
