It’s Official, Democrats are in Panic Mode Ahead of 2014 Midterm Elections … Some Veteran House Dems To Retire

 

The New York Times has officially declared that the Democrats should be worried ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. Why so concerned, Barack Obama’s sinking job approval ratings, the GOP’s special election House win in Florida 13 and the continued dissatisfaction with Obamacare to name a few. Democrats have been in denial for quite some time when it comes to their chances of success in 2014. However, Barack Obama has become toxic and so have his policies and agenda.

Of course Barack Obama sent Baghdad Bob White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer to go out on ‘Meet the Press‘ this past Sunday and spin the obvious. Pfeiffer said,“the president will be an asset in every way possible to help these candidates” and that Democrats are on the right side of the issue that matters most to Americans, jobs and the economy. Okay, try not to laugh. Really, Americans agree with Obama/Democrats on the economy, polls would say a much different story.

Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama’s sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last week, and millions of dollars spent by Republican-aligned groups attacking the new health law.

The combination has led to uncharacteristic criticism of Mr. Obama and bitter complaints that his vaunted political organization has done little to help the party’s vulnerable congressional candidates.

The latest in a cascade of bad news came Friday when Scott Brown, a former senator from Massachusetts, announced an exploratory committee to challenge the incumbent Democrat in New Hampshire, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and when the Republican-aligned “super PAC” American Crossroads said it would spend $600,000 to help his effort.

Earlier, another top-tier Republican recruit, Representative Cory Gardner, decided to challenge Senator Mark Udall of Colorado; the two races create unanticipated opportunities improving Republicans’ chances to take control of the Senate. No prominent Democrats predict their party will win back the House.

Over the weekend on CNN on ‘Inside Politics’, John King said that because of the results in the Florida 13 special election, look for a few more veteran House Democrats to retire seeing the handwriting on the wall and no chance for Democrats to win back the House.

Watch in the week or so ahead for a few more retirements by veteran House Democrats.

I’m told the Florida special election results were the last straw for at least two and perhaps more House Democrats facing tough 2014 races.

      The Democrats are on a downhill slide that began in 2010. The TEA party is working a plan to cut them off beginning at the local and state level. This election cycle is going to be worse for the Democrats than the one in 2010.

      The way to stop the Democrats is to out work them at the local level and to prevent them from stealing elections by things such as stopping voter ID and false ballots in the early voting cycle.
