Skip to comments.GOP Rep. Yoder predicts narrow Obama victory (Idiot Alert)
Posted on 12/27/2011 4:19:42 PM PST by tobyhill
Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.), in an interview published Monday, predicted that President Obama would narrowly win reelection next year but that Republicans would capture the Senate.
"If I had to predict, I would project that the president would narrowly win reelection, the House would stay the way it is and the Senate would go Republican," said Yoder, in an interview with the Kansas City Star.

If Willard is the guy I predict this dude is right.
Disagree. With Obama or Romney, either way we need as conservative a Congress as possible to restrain the White House. We need every possible conservative voter for every House and Senate election.
He’s saying what Intrade says also, and probably because he read their numbers. I hope he’s wrong, but I think he wants to look realistic. I’d prefer someone who worked to change the future instead of trying to look smart for accepting a disastrous future.
Really? What has his voting record been? That's the only thing that counts.
I trust your judgment.
Semper fi, FRiend.
I believe Obama has an excellent chance to win re-election. The circular firing squad that is the republican primary will very likely produce a candidate the true believers will not support giving us another four years of the Kenyan marxist.
Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.)said that in 2012, “the House will stay the way it is.” NO, NO, Congressman; there will be one change for sure. Your a** will be voted out.
Here’s the deal as I see it: sometime in the next three years, the real crap is going to hit the fan in the financial markets, especially the bond market. For those who doubt it will happen, look at how quickly the European bond markets went ape this year. It can and does happen quickly.
This is going to happen to the US now with any POTUS who does not make at least $500 to $1,000 billion in real cuts in the next term.
We know, a priori, that neither Obama nor Romney will make those cuts in the real spending. Therefore, I believe it is best to lay the disaster at the feet of a Democrat. Just as the GOP was stupid to put Der Ahnuld into California and not fix the real problems, it will be stupid to own the problems at a Democrat national level and not fix them.
Obama will lose in a landslide regardless who the GOP nominates. Americans aren’t stupid. The Kenyan is toast.
From your lips to God’s ears.
One more reason: Romney signed an “assault weapon” ban. He is on the record as a gun banner. Way too many “conservatives” seem willing to overlook this. I won’t. Ever. Everyone whom I inform of this fact here in Wyoming changes their mind, if they were in favor of Romney.
Romney will not win the general election, period. Gun activists like me will see to it that his record gets out there. Take away the RKBA vote and the GOP cannot win a general election for POTUS.
The Republican Elite are trying their Best to Blow this Election . Just like the Last One. As far as they are concerned, winning the Senate is enough . But what about SCOTUS picks ? Obamacare will be the doom of us all. And on and On . Mean while our Guys are throwing Rocks at each other ? I have a feeling this May Not turn out well for the Country ?
SCOTUS picks: Lugar and Hatch will be there to guide them through for their friend Obama.
Please furnish evidence for this startling claim.
So that means that our little Republican primary voters will likely destroy the country they think they are guarding!
He is in what used to be ultra liberal Dennis Moore’s seat. He beat Dennis Moore’s wife in 2010 after a narrow defeat over the conservative GOP candidate in the primary.

The current GOP is the rear guard of the democratic party. The progressives completely infiltrated the GOP as they did every single institution in our society. When a cancer spreads it has no borders it does not cross. We need a badly needed purge in our society. Both parties need to be done away with.
I agree. Especially after our moron gets up in the first debate and tells everyone what a great human bean Barry Soetoro is and how he’d make a great two termer.
It could happen, due to the same self-aggrandizing voters of 2008, and the Republican party's public relations fiascoes.
You and me both. And another thing, I simply don't see Obama being viewed in any way as "likeable". Hell, I can't stand to listen to the bastard talk, with his nose stuck in the air like Mussolini. Now I could see people viewing BJ Clinton as likeable, but the Kenyan Marxist? I don't buy it.
I would vote for Mumia Abu Jamal or Vandelrsloot if need be.
A B O !!!!
Amen ! What the hell is this negative talk? So far in the history of United States, a president has not been elected when 70% feel that country is going in the wrong direction.
I don’t like Romney but let us not whine about it ! We could not make up our mind on a conservative candidate ! Romney with a VP ticket of Rubio/Ryan/ Jindal can easily win the election. Do you guys have any idea of swing states like PA, FL, VA? Obama is down so much in these states.
This is not the time to sit in home ! I hate to do this after the debacle in 2008 ! The difference is the economy !
Thank you for that sentiment. May God’s pockets have holes and rain riches on you.
John 126.96.36.199 ( I made this up.)
The responsibility for the destruction of thd country will lie with the third party morons and those true believers who will sit it out if their candidate doesn’t get thd nomination. That way the kenyan is guaranteed a second term
I suspect he’s articulating what most of DC wants...
if it were anyone else fine, but Obama needs to go at all costs, even if it meant voting for the Hillside Strangler
When did “I think that X will happen” become synonymous with “I want for X to happen”?
This is scaring me. Why are so many Republicans coming out and saying Obama will be re-elected???? Is this what they want??? Are they going to actually throw the election.
If you go back to 1984, many Democrat elected officials came forward and said Mondale would defeat Reagan, even though his eminent defeat was clear as a bell.
Why is our side throwing in the towel and we haven’t even picked our candidate yet?
Be careful what you pray for. Romney will not lose if he is the GOP candidate. Obama is done, finished by the economy. That is why we need the most conservative possible GOP nominee. Since the GOP nominee is a lock to win, another RINO is going to absolutely kill this Republic.
Even Rush said that BJ Clinton would probably be a "good guy to have a beer with." whereas Hussein shooting that nose of his up in the air looks like a character skit for SNL!
It's not our side!The system is skewed for low-lifes, crooks and con men.
The campaign finance laws are leveraged against Reagan types.
The media needs to get reamed as much as the candidates.
Perhaps a super pac can do some research into the media darlings' private lives?
“Who are all these supposed people who find Obama likable? They don’t do any useful work. They don’t live responsible lives”
You’re a “detective”, so just look around.
They are legion....
And it is _their_ cohort which is increasing in numbers. Not ours.
“It is very discouraging that so many posters will not vote for Romney under any circumstances. Romney is not my first, second or even third choice. However, in what will be a close election,, the alternative to Romney will be Obama. To me that is an alternative worse than death.”
I agree with you. The individuals herein who speak of not voting against Obama are hypocrites. They say they want to take America back, but will let ideological purity get in the way? It’s dumb and dumber. Barack Obama is a clear and present danger to the USA. Period.
I’m like you. I cannot stomach the sight or sound of Barack Obama. This arrogant jerk turns my stomach. I turn off the radio or tv whenever he comes on. He sickens me at a personal level.
Who is this person? Is he a RINO?
