bleeech. They name Christie and Walker no other indications of anything.

Georgia will be a tough fight but I think will go to the republican.

So much depends upon individual campaigns and local issues

Democrats have no reason to despair. Americans proved that they are stupid beyond words in November 2012. Democrats will benefit greatly from the deplorable electorate.

Yeah I’d like to kick Rick Snyder in the ass most days but that doesn’t mean I’m going to vote for the marxist who is trailing 10 to 15 points in all polling.

I, too, was deeply saddened to hear of the death of President Roosevelt on February 19, 2014...

It depends on how many ‘Oaknuts’ get out the vote!

ANYBODY STUPID ENOUGH TO BE VOTING FOR ANY DEMOCRAT IS TOO STUPID TO BE FREE. Communists, Queers, Muslims, and ILLEGAL Aliens all support the Democratic Party Plantation.

The article is calling Michigan one of the states they plan to take.

It’s BS. The RATS have zero zip notta chance of winning here.

Yup. Mark Schauer is trailing Snyder badly because we haven't forgotten.

I liked it when they pepper-sprayed the little weasel at the union thug protest at the capital.

If Snyder debates him he should whip out a can of pepper spray and hose the little bastard down right on stage.

Exactly. The Mitt campaign's mistakes included overestimating voters' intelligence.

But it turned out that a lot of LIVs believed those absurd Rat attacks were true (such as the war on women, claims that Romney was responsible for a workers' wife's cancer, or the idiotic dog-on-the-car-roof non-issue.)

The Rats win, because they understand their voter base more than the Stupid Party does its own.

No, they are simply grabbing at straws when they have a hard election to face. They ruined America... America is waking up and they are growing more pissed every day. Dream on communists!
