Folks, this Presidential race is over
Various ^ | 10/21/08 | Impeached Rapist

Posted on 10/21/2008 6:00:23 AM PDT by impeachedrapist

Obama's numbers in OH stink, and PA isn't much better. He's hurting in FL. McCain's putting on the pressure in NH, WI, MN, IA, CO, VA and rumor has it even MI again. And McCain/Palin are just now employing their ad blitz. Life is good, and barring a major October/November surprise the lightweight Marxist has been defeated.

But we still have plenty of work to do. There are a bunch of vulnerable freshmen Dem representatives in the House. The GOP has about 20 realistic pick-up opportunities. See my list below:

AL-05
AZ-05
CA-11
GA-08
IL-14
KS-02
KY-03
LA-06
MS-01
NH-01
NH-02
NY-20
PA-07
PA-08
PA-10
PA-11
TX-22
TX-23
WI-08
And my personal favorite! PA-12 (tough, but doable thanks to Murtha the Marine smearing racist)

Details on these races (website links, voting percentages, fundraising numbers, etc.) are here spread throughout this thread.

The current count is Dems 233, GOP 202. The Pubbies unfortunately do have to defend a lot of seats due to retirement. To retake the House they'd need to basically run the table on defending those seats and win about 16 of those above pick-up opportunities. Possible, but not likely. However, a solid McCain/Palin win in this anti-incumbent environment could provide enough of a push. And just cutting into the Dems' current 31-seat lead, after months of them gloating, will be very demoralizing.

If you've been thinking about donating your time and/or money, now's the time.

Of course I haven't even discussed some critical Senate and gubernatorial races out there. Please feel free to mention those here, or to bring up House races you feel I've overlooked.

Remember, this race (in my view) isn't really McCain vs. Obama, Palin vs. Biden, or even Palin vs. Obama.

It's regular America vs. the media. And I want them absolutely crushed and humiliated the night of Nov. 4th. Let's replace Chrissy Matthews' tingle down his leg with something considerably less pleasant.

Anybody who says it is over in either direction is being way too optimistic or way too pessimistic. There is still a lot of fight in this race and nobody can let up.

Landrieu can be beaten in Louisiana, but she's dug in like a tick on a coon hound, so it's going to take some work.

Don’t forget Michele Bachmann. She’s in trouble for questioning some of 0bama’s views, and there’s an orchestrated effort to unseat her in two weeks. You can listen to her interview from yesterday, Monday 10/20/2008 on http://www.themarklevinshow.com. She needs cash - the libs raised $2M to work against her. If you can donate anything at all, it’d be great.

Irrational exuberance.

Funny. One of us (you!) provides only emotion. The other (me) provides data. Data you don't like, which is fine. But please don't attempt to lecture me on being irrational until you yourself reach at least a beginner's level of rationality.

Landrieu can be beaten in Louisiana,

I saw where the NRSC had recently pulled back its ads in LA, then changed their minds and went back in. I would love to see her beaten, as well as see the GOP pick up LA-06.

KY-03 Northup (R) vs Yarmuth (D, Communist)

Anne has lots of volunteers working for her. Debate coming up tonight. Last time Yarmuth admitted that even if your home is paid for the government owns it (his opinion). Very vulnerable on drilling (against), spending (for) and the bridges project (against).

We're actually in agreement. There's still time for Obama/Biden to change the momentum, like we saw Gore do in 2000. But I'm hoping folks realize there's more at stake here than just Palin and that white-haired guy winning the Presidency. We're at a major tipping point, and I'd like to see everyone here (I know, I'm dreaming) apply themselves to severely punish the Dems and the media (same thing, I know).

Don’t forget Michele Bachmann.

I didn't forget about her. I only focused on seats currently held by Dems that the GOP has a shot at picking up. Michele is defending her seat, and I wish her the very best. She has to be encouraged by how much time and energy the McCain campaign has put into Minnesota. I'm certain that will help her.

Obama practising his Black Liberation Theology religion for 20 years is the Democrat's and MSM's Mark Foley scandal. They are covering it up and supporting this fraudster. Expose it, and downticket candidates are going to benefit big time.

How is Andy Harris doing in MD-01, normally a solid lock. Gilchest the uberRINO is departing and has endorsed Kratovil. And I just read in the Sunfishwraptoilet paper this morning that it’s a “toss-up” (of course they didn’t provide any polling).

I really, really hope and wish you were right. But come on. We can still win, but the MSM and Hussein’s million$ are going to pull out all the stops over the next two weeks. It’s very hard to be optimistic.

That said, I think we can take Pa., which would be a major coup.

McCain has zero chance of taking Michigan. None.

MI Senator Levin will hop, skip and jump to victory over his GOP challenger, like he always does. He could reveal himself to be the Prince of Darkness and still get reelected.

Scarier still, Congressman Tim Walberg (MI 7th) is facing a tough reelection against dem challenger Schauer, which is absolutely inexplicable to all of us who live in mid-mitten. I've seen a few recent polls that actually put Schauer ahead of Walberg.

Not good. Don't count on any rays of sunshine coming out of Michigan.

And if it’s not close at all, but a landslide, what will happen to all the concern about riots?

I think the ‘riots’ are more the sugar-coated dreams of MSM reporters who fantasize about being ‘on-scene’ during a riot.

Every MSM reporter is looking for their Woodward/Bernstein fifteen minutes.

I live in MD 01 and it does seem to be a toss-up. I think Harris assumed the seat was his and didn’t really do the work he had to do to ensure victory. Kratovil and his lover Gilcrest are all over the airwaves and sending out reams of junk mail, and you don’t tend to hear much from Harris.
