White House spokesman Robert Gibbs suggested Sunday that Republicans could take control of the House in the November elections.
People are going to have a choice to make in the fall, Gibbs said on NBCs Meet the Press. Click here to learn more!Click to learn more!Click here to learn more!
Gibbs stated that theres no doubt theres enough seats in play to allow Republicans to take control in the 112th Congress.
The fact that the Obama White House is acknowledging that there is even a possibility that Democrats could lose their majority in the House should be read as a tacit admission that their economic policies have failed in the eyes of the voters, Ken Spain, communications director for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said in a statement Sunday afternoon.
Gibbs also said that Democrats would play up the possibility of House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) becoming Speaker and Rep. Joe L. Barton (R-Texas) becoming the chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee as a strategy for rallying voters against a GOP takeover this fall.

ahh...yeah. Because your boss is a nutcase.
Boehner as Speaker, ugh. Only slightly less worse than Pelosi. I wish that someone like Paul Ryan was in the running for Speaker, but the Repubs always seem to give it to whoever’s “turn” it is - hence that worn out RINO, McCain, in 2008.
If “Baghdad Bob” Gibbs says the Republicans “have a shot”, the ‘rats internal polling must show they expect complete and total annihilation on November 2.
Ahh, so Gibbs strategy of trying to scare y’all with Boehner is working....

Don’t get me wrong, anyone is preferable to Auntie Nan, but one could wish for someone better than the Orange Man.
Know what? If we will follow the example of the young people of Iran who used Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to connect to others and get information out to their communities then we can switch many Democrats to Republicans.
We have the chance to reach out. We need to take advantage of that. Unlike those kids in Iran, we don’t have thugs and police threatening to beat us for opposing the government — not yet, at least.
They don’t call him “Gibberish” for nuttin’
At first I thought Gibbs made a mistake and actually told the truth for once, which is clearly against administration policy.
But I am wondering if he has to start saying that it could happen in order to motivate the MSM and other Dems to step up and start working to sway the vote. (by any means necessary?)
ransomnote....I think you hit the nail on the head.
This is merely a way to gin up the “oides” that don’t normally get out of bed for a mid-term election.
Everyone with a brain needs to either volunteer at the polls, looking for the voter fraud that is guaranteed in November, and/or write to their Secretaries of State and let THEM know that WE know Pelosi sent TWO different Documents of Certification for the “Won’s” eligibility.
No sh*t Sherlock!
As a fan of the bible, I think this crap is just plain dumb. It says no such thing.
Now, that is deep. And funny as hell.
Obama and Co. think that warning Americans about Republicans possibly taking back the Congress will work in their favor, given the unpopularity of Republicans just prior to 2008. This could backfire, however.
