“13) In 2014 election Reid and Pelosi get back the same numbers they got in 2009.”
I’ve also predicted this in some previous posts.
Typically, the president and his party -lose seats- in a midterm election. Those are — or at least those used to be — the usual results.
But in the new Entitlee America, the conventional wisdom and rules no longer apply.
If they still did, a president with as horrible a record (particularly in terms of economic performance) could not have been re-elected. But Obama WAS re-elected, and the “old rules” have been tossed out into the street.
We can no longer assume that the Republicans are automatically going to gain seats in 2014. We can’t even assume that they are going to easily “hold what they have”.
I believe the Republicans may be setting themselves up for a defeat in 2014. By that, I mean they may barely hold their seats in the Senate (or even lose a little), and they may lose their majority in the House.
If Obama and his ‘rats succeed in their strategy (and right now I see little from the Republicans that will halt that strategy), they may be able to turn 2014 into a crushing defeat for the Pubs.
If that happens, the Republicans will become “the incredible shrinking party” — slowly but surely fading away as did the Whigs before them.
Then it will become “third party” time.
Only in this case, it will be the _Republicans_ that have become “the third party”...
It’s looking that way .
But we love losing don't we?? After all look how much fun it is complaining about the MSM, rigged polls, rigged elections and voter fraud. Man that is fun :)
My favorite I keep reading:
“ The MSM will blame Rs no matter what so the R House should work as hard as they can to p... voters off so badly that Rs will never get control of the congress or WH again. That will teach them(those stupid voters) for re-electing O. ”.
my paraphrasing obviously.
Obama is always many steps ahead of the Rs and his traps can be seen miles away, but I keep hearing, :
Lets jump right into that trap on principle. If O demands tax cuts then we must oppose them. He cant tell us what to do. ”
my paraphrasing obviously but this is what voters hear.
