Election Time Again

Posted: 2014 Nov 01 07:46

2014 MIDTERMS:

Certainly 1/3 of folks have already voted. Voting has never been EASIER!

Colorado is blazing trails with a mail in vote. Shoot, you can even mail in 9 extra votes on behalf of others! Still, Colorado is one of maybe 7 States that could FLIP Senate seats from DEMOCRAT to Republican. Alaska, Montana, South Dakota, Colorado, Iowa, and two southern states, Arkansas and West Virginia. Georgia and Louisiana are in play too and maybe North Carolina or New Hampshire could surprise us though it is unlikely.

Sabato calls it R +5-8 seats.

The GOP will likely gain several, maybe even double digit gains in the House. REMEMBER these House Reps are elected EVERY TWO YEARS. They are our most accountable and CLOSEST representatives in the Federal Government. History will not look kindly on our flailing President and his failings.

Sabato has the GOP +9

Hope you get out and vote Tuesday!!!
:tiphat: Just make sure the machine is in fact "calibrated" correctly when you hit SUBMIT.

WHO? Obama?

Michael Goodwin? Writer and journalist for the NY POST? Registered Democrat? What does he have to say... This article is damning.
What a strong indictment of Obama, and the Democrat Party and the Democrats in D.C. Just WOW. Amazing time we are living in.
So much effort has gone into defending the irresponsible and incompetent growth of the Federal State. We are not being well served.

http://nypost.com/2014/11/02/obama-alwa ... eone-else/ :sigh: Get out there and vote for ED!!

Warner by 10 or more for a long time. Now it may be SEVEN. If Mark beats Ed by 4 it is still a loss for the Rs. That's local, but Nationally?
There are more Rs than Ds in r e f e r e n d u m. By a two to one margin. As well the word ends in DUM which Old Man Coondog won't fail to note.

So many story lines. I hope Brown wins in N.H. I see him ably arguing the good cause with Warner and Warren. Should be fun.
Gotta have a Positive Attitude. Obama has had 6 years to Transform. I hope the r e b u k e is r e s o u n d i n g ! ! ! Remember:

These Senators are supposed to represent their State on behalf of it's People in D.C.
Not rep their Party, not the Federal Government as Sovereign over The People certainly...

....failed to mention the appointment of a few girls to the Sublime Court, sent Bin Laden to hell, saved the US auto industry, is overseeing an extended period of job growth and a stock market at record highs, among other things.

But, of course, these kind of failures are apt to lead to low poll numbers among the stupidest people on earth. One of the most honest assessments by any conservative over the past 20 years is the observation that, "You can't fix stupid!" Coondog is inclined to agree, because as Momma Gump says, "stupid is as stupid does" and people continue to vote against their own best interests. Why?

Stupidity!

Participants in the Red Neck Comedy Tour have no interest in fixing stupid. Neither do representatives in congress. It's who pays their salary.


Tomorrow is another important day in the continued experiment we call America. The results will enable us to determine just how stupid we are.

The smart money is that, regardless of who wins the Senate, the collective representation will mirror the constituency and that the constituency is, collectively, dumber than a bag of bricks! :bricks:

Coondog presents the following supportive quotes for your discernment:

“Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.”
― George Carlin

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
― Albert Einstein

“In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.”
― Napoleon

“The two most common elements in the universe are Hydrogen and stupidity.”
― Harlan Ellison

“I have defined the hundred per cent American as ninety-nine per cent an idiot.”
― George Bernard Shaw

“If stupidity got us in this mess, how come it can't get us out.”
― Will Rogers

“Something reduces the speed of the world and that something is stupidity! Stupidity is a boring friction!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan

“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”
― Bertrand Russell

“In other words, the more stupid one is, the more he thinks he knows.”
― L. Frank Baum

“Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it.”
― Laurence J. Peter,

If the Democrats win it shows ENLIGHTENMENT. If the Republicans win it shows STUPIDITY. This is such SHALLOW observation. Coondog is incoherent.

What rhetoric. OBAMA saved us from economic implosion and the WORST downturn since WWII. OBAMA saved the auto industry. OBAMA killed Bin Laden.
This stuff is as shallow as the war on women mantra! There is no ability to slow down and be honest about events. The Democrats will be rebuked...

The STOCK MARKET is up. The Dems should be HOWLING at that. Those EVIL RICH have been well served by Obama too!! It is crazy-making logic.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Two years ago Romney did not inspire. Two years later is Obama that fails to inspire voters to the polls. :2cent: Get out and VOTE!!!

There you go. Obama did such a great job and the American People in Maryland loved him so much for it they elected a Republican Governor. Shocking.
Obama should send up a different nominee for Surgeon General. Hillary with her "businesses and corporations don't create jobs" rhetoric fell flat. :dontknow:

ILLINOIS elected a GOP Governor. Harry Reid's Chief of Staff harshly criticized Obama for being an incompetent. Tim Scott elected to a full term in S.C. Mia Love elected in Utah. Scott Walker re-elected. We must have fiscally conservative governance. Our national debt is $750,000 per each American.

Sabato had the GOP picking up 9 House seats. So far they have gained 14. He had the Democrats picking up 3 governorships. THEY LOST 3... Record numbers of reps in the House, holding the largest majority since 1928. The Senate flipped with the GOP maybe netting NINE seats in due course. :dontknow:

Last night had a few bright spots, but overall it was very disappointing for Democrats. A mood of dejection is evident among them.

The country seems determined to reward the guys who get us into messes, and punish the guys who work diligently to dig us out.

The causes are an incredibly effective national Republican propaganda machine (Limbaugh, Hannity, Fox-TV, Heritage Foundation, etc.), and boatloads of money from a few crazed billionaire right-wingers to purchase ever more propaganda. It works.

Across America, people voted “R” regardless … usually without knowledge, and sometimes in spite of knowledge, of the relative merits of the candidates. In the southern red states there is no question that Obama-ire is 90% rooted in raw racism. I live among and know these people. I am not fooled by their having cleaned up their public language a bit. Racist hatreds still rage and they still speak naked racist insult when they think they are out of public earshot.

I don’t have the prescription for fixing it, unless it is . Actually, John Sarbanes does have a and we would do well to implement it.

Nikki Haley won RE-election with a 56 to 41 margin. First of all she is a WOMAN. Secondly she is Indian Amaerican, one of TWO REPUBLICAN Indian American GOVERNORS elected by SOUTHERNERS.

MIA LOVE (R), elected by the lily white folks of Utah. Oh those haters!

You know, scores of millions were poured into WHITE traditionally blue union-controlled WISCONSIN to unseat Governor Scott Walker. He won BIG.
In Florida, Rick Scott won BIG. Speaking of Mitch McConnell, he has an able opponent, who was WELL FUNDED and he won by like 15 points. HUGE.

Look to Virginia where Warner was up by double digits even 20 point, fell to 7 late and maybe only won by 4 tenths of a percentage point... ED!!!
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The most accountable House, the House of Representatives, elected every two years flipped in 2010, held and grew their majority in 2012 and 2014.
Obama hasn't had to deal with them, the most directly responsible elected representatives of The People, because he had Harry Reid's STONEWALL.

Well DING DONG the witch was dead in 2010, and now obstructionist King Harry in the Senate is NO MORE. YES, we know Obama was elected TWICE.
He is not a Dictator. This is a Representative democracy. A REPUBLIC. He represents one branch of Government. The LEGISLATURE has a roll to play.

Obama IGNORING the House and Senate Republicans is not COMPROMISE. It is not GOVERNING. It is not BIPARTISAN. :sail:

Wow! One supposes we could find examples of predominate liberal constituencies electing old white men, too.

Exceptions to rules stand out in glaring contrast to norms.

So, now the narrative is that Harry Reid and Barak Obama have been the obstructionists over the past 6 years. A house that passes nothing (record low) but repeal Obamacare legislation (no replace, just repeal) and a Senate that filibustered everything (record high). Well, it is common for the winners to rewrite history. That's done in Texas, by the way, where all the textbooks come from.

If the public with their voter IDs and anger in their hearts thought that putting the lunatics in charge of the asylum was going to get them to shut up long enough for them to find the bathrooms, they were wrong. The blood curdling screams continue unabated!

Fine! We shall now see how manic-depressive children act in an ice cream store without supervision. That be one scoop or two?

Or, maybe voter suppression really does work?

Touting votes that re-name post offices as evidence of bipartisan consensus sounds about right. Congress doing what it does best!

You want to convince progressives to believe you're not really who we think you are, give us some evidence of that. Telling us lies and calling us names just doesn't get the job done.

Since Boehner crawled out of whatever hole he's been hibernating in, he's given us no expectation that whatever it is we're about to step in is anything but the same old Z#!t.

Stupid does as stupid is. Enjoy it.......while you can.

So CHECK. Got it. 3 points to crux. 4 if we count your "racism/racist" crap. Now:

Nominating Charlie Crist in Florida for Governor SUPPRESSED Democrat votes.
Wendy Davis's ugly attacks on her opponent SUPPRESSED Democrat votes.
Hillary Clinton campaigning for the Dem, saying "Businesses and corporations don't create jobs" suppressed votes.
ALL OF OBAMA'S lies and deeds suppressed DEMOCRAT VOTES.
Democrat Candidates who WOULDN'T let Obama campaign for them SUPPRESSED VOTES.
Governmental incompetence suppressed votes.
Negative campaigning suppressed votes.

Number of Democratic Senators who voted for the ACA in 2010 are no longer in the Senate.
3 died and 5 resigned, and 21 voted out.

It is what it is.
