Democrats … what ever gave you the idea that you would lose the House?
With an economy tanking and in complete disarray, unemployment at near 10% nationally, new home sales at a 40 year low, existing home sales at record lows, record amount of Americans on food stamps, more people being added tofirst time unemployment benefits, the Obama stimulus passed by Democrats a complete disaster and the Congressional Generic Ballot polling having Republics up 9% over Democrats heading into the midterm elections … Democrats are now finally worried.
Democrats actually are now starting to believe that they might lose the US House of Representatives this Fall and Democrat House Speaker will be out of a job, what ever gave them this idea? Certainly not the VP turned cheerleader and head Obama Admin “denialist”Joe Biden who previously stated that, “the death of the Democrat party has been greatly exaggerated”. It would appear that Democrats are not finding the VP’s words very credible.
Top Democrats are growing markedly more pessimistic about holding the House, privately conceding that the summertime economic and political recovery they were banking on will not likely materialize by Election Day.
In conversations with more than two dozen party insiders, most of whom requested anonymity to speak candidly about the state of play, Democrats in and out of Washington say they are increasingly alarmed about the economic and polling data they have seen in recent weeks
They no longer believe the jobs and housing markets will recover – or that anything resembling the White House’s promise of a “recovery summer” is under way. They are even more concerned by indications that House Democrats once considered safe – such as Rep. Betty Sutton, who occupies an Ohio seat that President Barack Obama won with 57 percent of the vote in 2008 – are in real trouble.
In two close races, endangered Democrats are even running ads touting how they oppose their leadership.
Hmm, they oppose their leadership eh. Maybe they would like to explain their voting record and being in lockstep with their leadership? Also, if the sun did fail to rise in the East and they did retain the House would they continue to support Nancy Pelosi, their leader, as Speaker? Against the will of the people they passed Obamacare. Democrats made their bed, they opposed the will of the people and now they must pay the price.
