Skip to comments.GOP has tough road to win House
Posted on 09/21/2010 6:51:10 AM PDT by paudio
For the past month, most of the national press has been uncritically swallowing a steady diet of Republican propaganda: The race for the House is over; the Republicans have already won.
As someone who has been involved in congressional politics for more than 30 years and served as Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman for the 1996 and 1998 cycles, I questioned this. Instead, I took a state-by-state look at the electoral map, particularly after POLITICO published a bipartisan Battleground Poll on Sept. 16 that showed the generic ballot between Republicans and Democrats to be a 43 percent to 43 percent dead heat nationally.

Ha Politico shilling for its masters.
and just yesterday Rasmussen had the generic ballot at 48 to 38...so Politico is cherry picking again as usual.
I think a huge pub win is being built up so that the bar is very high. If the pubs don’t win big, they will just say “the pubs under preformed”
I don’t call it pollutico for nothing.
we’ll see won’t we
They say that, regardless.
“uncritically swallowing a steady diet of Republican propaganda”
A real neutral observer there. NOT!
Frost got his A** kicked out of office and he is still po’d.
Get a life Frost. No ONE cares what you think.
GOP cannot coast now. It would be like doing a victory dance on the 10 yard line.
There is truth in that. I get nervous when we think it is in the bag and done. It is never over until you are salting the scalps.
You got it! Remember the mantra of the DC cabal:
“Less bad is the new good”
“Less bad is the new good”
Really funny thing is he site a Politico commissioned poll to validate his claims. So Politco is citing itself as the source of it “Facts”.
“I think a huge pub win is being built up so that the bar is very high. If the pubs dont win big, they will just say ‘the pubs underperformed’.
And we’ll see more and more of this as we get closer to Election Day.
Politico isn’t shilling, just publishing a guest column by a former congressman who got whupped and hasn’t gotten over it. Frost held that seat for decades, probably still as bitter as Murkowski.
Frankly, I like reading what the Dems are saying and thinking. It’s always good to get inside the head of the opposition.
I actually agree with Frost. Every one of these takeaways will be a fight... it should always be viewed that way.
Haha! Someone has been freebasing “hope and change” again!! LoL
This just in an email from a good friend in Alabama..pass it on:
“Just thought I would share with you a little bit of what we heard at last night’s Republican dinner here in Crawford County, Ohio . John Kasich (running for Gov. of Ohio) was the keynote speaker. Also present were many politicians, most notably, Bob Latta, our U.S. Congressman. Mike and I walked up to Bob and thanked him for his conservative voting record and voiced our concern about what is going on in Washington. He made some funny botox remarks about Pelosi and then agreed with us that we have every reason to be concerned.
As there were others waiting to talk to him, our time was brief. Although what took place later that evening should make chills run up and down everyone’s spine to hear. He asked to speak a few words at the end of the night and went up on stage. He proceeded to tell the crowd how bad things really are in Washington. He said if he could tell us even half of what the agenda is and what this administration plans to do to our country we couldn’t sleep at night. He said he only gets 4 to 4-1/2 hours of sleep a night and worries constantly about what they want to do to this country.
He said that Pelosi, Reid and Obama have to be stopped. He said, “You know, you always hear this is the most important election blah blah blah, but I am telling you people...whatever you have to do to wake people up you need to do! We have got to vote them out in 2010 or with the things they have planned for this country we won’t even be a country by 2020! Ten years.”
You could see the look of almost desperation on his face.
He talked about the huge debt. He talked about how the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) gets their “figures”. He sits on the finance committee and listens to the ramblings of Geithner and Bernanke. He said, “If you think that the Chinese won’t hold this over us with all our debt you have another thought coming. Our children will have nothing.”
“I don’t care if you have to go out door to door, tell at least 10 people who will then tell 10 people. We have to do this. This is the single most important election ever in the history of this country. The change that Obama promised us is NOT the change people thought he meant.”
WELL, IVE JUST SENT THIS OUT TO EVERYONE ON MY DISTRIBUTION LIST! WILL YOU DO THE SAME? WE CAN GET RID OF MOST OF THE BAD GUYS IN CONGRESS THIS NOVEMBER, INCLUDING FANCY NANCY . LETS DO IT RIGHT THIS TIME.

End of fwd msg.
When one recalls back to November of 2008, when the One was held in such high regard the pundits were writing off the Republicans as being as dead as the dinosaurs. Now less than two years later Obama has done more to help the Republican cause than anyone since Ronald Reagan.
