Skip to comments.Senate Democrats are in big trouble in 2014
Posted on 02/23/2014 8:36:59 AM PST by Libloather
Midterm elections are often a reflection of the approval rating of the incumbent president and now President Obama stands at 42.8%. And elections in the 6th year of a Presidents term are usually not good for the incumbents party. To make things even worse for Democrats, the issues of a weak economy and Obamacare make November look bleak for Harry Reid and his Senate Democratic cohorts.

Proposed Constitutional Amendment:
They, the EXEMPT, and their EXEMPT portfolios,
should be held accountable for the pain and suffering
they administer through “laws” which do not hold
for them (and Moslems, of course).
The more RATs and RINOs that can be taken down this November, the better.
Both Houses of Congress need an industrial strength enema to flush out as many turds as possible.
What reason have the Republicans in either the House or the Senate given people to support them?
We’ll just go to Hell more slowly with GOP-e majorities?
Well, so are senate republicans, think “endangered RINOs”...
I wish it were true. Not that it would be a huge improvement, but it would help.
November 2012 taught me not to underestimate the stupidity of the American electorate.
“Making Dingy a back-bencher.”
I would prefer to see this little reprobate become an inmate assigned to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
Messrs Pearson and Smith left one off the list:
◾South Carolina, linda graham, “Republican by day, Democrat by night.”
His wiki bio implies that Harry has never held a private sector job in his adult life.
My guess is he’s one of those who goes from the Capitol bldg to the mortuary about 20 yrs from now.
Ha! Community Organizers everywhere will be on their government supplied phones making sure Senate Democrats have plenty of support...
If our prayers are answered and the Dems lose the Senate,Harry Reid may retire. He is a power junkie and couldn’t stand to be irrelevant. And besides, he has more money from his shady land deals than he has years left to spend it.
I’m wondering just how the Republicans will pull off a game plan that will not only destroy their advantage but also cost them more seats. I know they have it in them.
I heard a radio news report earlier this week that Rep. Tom Cotton (R) is even with Sen. Mark Pryor. The survey, however, showed 15% undecided, so there is still room for surprises.
The last time Pryor ran for reelection, the state had 3 Dem and 1 Pubbie House Representatives and another Dem Senator.
This time, the state has 4 Pubbie House Representatives and the other Senator is also a Republican.
The people are losers as well because though you may get some Republicans in there, you will not get many elected yet who have a pair and will stand up for common sense government.
Well, that's a start. What would you propose, go to hell more quickly?
I wouldn’t count on South Dakota to help make dirty harry a back bencher
Larry pressler is running as a independent.
I hope that we can take back the seat stolen from us by Davison and Shannon counties.
hopefully the outrage over the Dems bs will overcome the money the Tides foundation is sure to pour into this election
Your pessimism is well founded.
Even a GOP “win” would be an imaginary victory.
Im wondering just how the Republicans will pull off a game plan that will not only destroy their advantage but also cost them more seats. I know they have it in them.
Pubbies have long and undistinguished track record of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and in turning advantage into capitulation. My money is on a repeat performance.
Republican by day, Democrat by night.
That is a good one. I will probably steal that line.
For the last 6 years the gop-e have managed to hand everything over to the dems. Unless the Tea Party steps in again, I’m sure the gop-e will continue it’s downward spiral.
There, fixed it.
“A Republican majority won’t be enough. We need real conservatives with the balls to reverse this Obama nightmare. “
For the first time, it appears that we are poised to do both. To rid the Congress of both RATs and RINOs. We may not be successful in each instance, but you can bet that the RINOs are quietly crapping their pants as this is written. Further, even if Conservatives aren’t 100% successful, the 2014 elections are going to be a wakeup call for the remaining RINOs. getting functional control of both Houses has to be the primary goal, with getting control of the Party Leadership a close second. We need to be successful this year, because in 2016 Republicans will, for the first time, have more seats on the line in the Senate than the RATs.
Pryor’s page was full of negative responses. I’m sure he didn’t expect that with his Bible in hand pic and comments!
Kick em all!
Harry's dam lucky he reps Nevada----if he repped Alaska, he'd be on an ice floe w/ the rest of the useless Eskimoes, floating out into the frigid Arctic Ocean, clad in a sealskin coat, bearskin shorts and a pair of mukluks.
He looks like a doddering old fool but he runs the senate like a mafia major domo.
I think that’s the difference today. Republicans put in a nice guy country clubber (Boehner) and the Dems have a shark.
If a plane is losing altitude quickly and looks like it’s going to crash into the ground, the recovery needs to be a steady arc to level off the craft and then focus on gaining altitude. Same with politics. First we get out of the death spiral by purging as many democrats as possible, then we focus on gaining altitude by replacing the RINOs with constitutional conservatives. To try to immediately regain our altitude might only serve to damage the plane or lose control completely. It needs to be a process and not a single immediate jolt or else the people will freak out due to shock to their normalcy bias. Step by step we can win this thing. Hang in there.
Never underestimate the RINO’s ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Harry’s just a lab specimen (genus Democrat)-—soemthing smeared on a glass slide.
To think we could have gotten rid of Reid a while back. Thanks Sharon Angle, and thanks people of Nevada.
I would have to say incumbents are in trouble
I have heard that as well. Note that he is quite wealthy now. What does that tell you?
...or morons elected by the GOP. Indiana and Missouri had a pair of idiots. Clearly nobody prepared either of them to answer very common questions designed to trip them up and to avoid topics they know would/could be twisted. If they were not prepared for that somebody was not doing their job; if they were, and still got it wrong, they were idiots.
To many on FR, the Democrats are never in trouble, they never lose.
At his age? Why in the world would Pressler do that?
Not if we win some crucial Primaries!
How does one say they are a Democrat and still a Christian?
Cornyn was responsible for that treason!
No...what happened was two morons answered questions about abortion/rape in ways that made them look ridiculous and allowed their opponents to shift the focus of the reelection debate. Had they been as bright as Cruz or Lee, it never, ever would have happened.
They were looking for an excuse to do so, since their candidates had been defeated.
They did the same with the candidates from MD and Neveda, who defeated their handpicked'guys'.
I remember MSNBC going after Rand on if he would have voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act!!!!
Since he said he wouldn't have, they tried to tar him with that!
Precisely. SOME people forget that even Rinos can be persuaded to occasionally do the right thing when they can be convinced that enough people care. The 100% GOP vote against THE initial passage of ObamaCare was a case in point.
The GOP is likely to give it back in 2016.
The RINOs will work very hard to ensure victory for the Republicans does not occur. E.g., Former Senators Lugar and Warner campaigning for Sam Nunn’s daughter in Georgia.
That would probably be me. You see, I believe in fighting every step of the way, every inch.
The rinos will get their's in due time, but first we need the majority in the senate in order to set the agenda. Let's not forget the federal judge appointments over the next few years.
I think the dems have a picture of him and a Dem mascot but I always thought there was something funny about pressler and the abscam operation.
Perhaps he is a convenient fall guy like I think McCain was
That was actually said by linda. Sorry the link to that revelation no longer works, from 2005.
I’m sorry. The link does work. Here it is:
