BREAKING: White House Admits Democrats Will Lose the Senate
redstate.com ^ | 4/10/14 | Erick Erickson

Posted on 04/10/2014 4:54:37 PM PDT by cotton1706

Put another way, Kathleen Sebelius has resigned and “Senior Administration Officials” are telling the media it is because of healthcare.gov.

You do not have a celebration event last week to celebrate 7 million sign ups and have Sebelius there to get credit then this week throw her under the bus because of a screw up that happened last October.

They have been standing with her since last October. They stood with her when the President’s polling was nosediving and throwing her under the bus could have stopped the bleeding.

They are doing so now. Sebelius actually resigned last week and the President already has a nominee ready to roll out tomorrow.

Why?

Their internal polling must be terrible and they want her gone and the issue treated as “old news” before the GOP takes the Senate in November.

Sebelius leaving now is a pretty direct admission against interest that the Democrats expect to lose the Senate and do not see any events on the horizon to change that momentum. Now, they’re just trying to slow the momentum down.

Hey GOP: Like Hans Solo tells Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: “Don’t get cocky, kid!”

It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.

It will be a hat trick if the senate is taken, along with the canning of both McConnell and Graham.

Make certain everyone in your household is registered to vote and will vote. Obama’s cult will try to steal the election again, so the numbers of patriots will have to be staggering to overcome their ballot stuffing, particularly the fraudulent absentee ballots that lets Democrats vote at least twice.

Her alleged replacement is Sylvia Burwell, who was responsible for a lot of (if not all) of the nonsense that went on during the government shutdown. Barricading off the WWII Memorial, for instance.

I want to see Burwell completely raked over the coals over that at her confirmation hearings.

Correction...Obama did NOT thank Sebelius...he thanked Pelosi, Reid and the Dems. There was speculation something was up with Sebelius because he essentially snubbed her.

Obama will keep a jet on reserve just in case he needs to escape to a private destination.

He and Reggie will wave to the Mooch in the rear view mirror.

EVERY Obama wh*re is an ex-Clinton official (male and female).

As I’ve said before, IMO Bill and Hillary are still the power in the democrat party—Obama is merely a competent placeholder, and doing excellent bidding for his heavily-encumbered bosses the Clintons, by the way. The depth and pervasiveness of the Clinton evil within the democrat party, even now, has facilitated the otherwise impossible gains.

Obama is their Second Reich. Hillary is their Third Reich.

Good triumphs over evil eventually, and this Clinton cabal will pass someday too.

Exactly. Plus all bets are off if the GOP passes amnesty.
If they do, I would not hold my breath waiting on a Senate Majority.

Most people won’t notice. Obama butt lickers will praise his leadership. And democrat politicians will say it’s all Sebelius’ fault.

Keep reminding your Liberal friends that the 2014 mid-term elections, due to expected high volume, will be held on two days based on an odd-even basis, like winter parking with Republicans voting on Nov. 4 and Democrats voting on Nov. 5!!!

Remember, Democrats vote November 5.....................

If Conservatives are cheering the demise of Kathleen Sebelius as if she’s the Wicked Witch of the West who just got a bucket of water thrown on her and vaporized into nothingness, Leftists who still strongly support ObamaCare must be feeling just the opposite.

By resigning, Kathleen Sebelius has abandoned her not-yet-fully-formed baby, ObamaCare, as if she realized it is hopelessly deformed and will never reach a healthy maturity. The Leftists must be outraged at this public abortion of their socialized-medicine dream.

It goes without saying that if Ms. Sebelius thought ObamaCare was a good program, she would be happy to stay and defend it from its critics. But she knows it’s an indefensible disaster. That’s why she’s leaving town, and leaving all remaining ObamaCare supporters bereft of a defender of their favorite program.

She’s dumping that meager $200k govt salary and heading for the multi-millions per year in lobbying or consulting.

Gotta pad her retirement a bit.

.... The GOP and Sibelius are about to become the poster children and scapegoats of what went and is going wrong with Obamacare. Obama will be portrayed as now being on a righteous mission to fix what Sibelius and the GOP have been trying to sabotage. ..... And yes ..... With the undying help from the media ..... The GOP will be in the unenviable position of trying to explain why they want to take the proverbial "Candy from the Baby."

They get to choose her replacement now, without Senate opposition. Probably not the case next year.

I think we would be better off letting Dem retain control of the Senate. If Republicans take control, this administration and their enablers in media will blame everything that has gone wrong over the last 5 years on Republicans and the American people are too stupid to know otherwise.

Obama is already forced to advance his agenda through executive fiat, taking control of the Senate will gain us nothing but will give Progressives more canon fodder to blame Republicans and the Tea Party for EVERYTHING!

Mock my words, this is not a good thing.

GOP Takes the Senate and Keeps house—watch as people flee the White House before the special prosicutors and Impeachment Trial. The books that will be written! The new scandals, maybe deaths! Its will be bad for the Progs—but Good for the Tea Party—it maybe be called “The Tea Party Strikes Back” or “The Revenge of the Tea Party”

Exactly - they are trying to get their sworn enemies to relax and lose focus. Not a hard thing to do if history is any indicator. Meanwhile, the fraud and corruption machine is in full swing to continue the theft that we keep allowing.
