President Barack Obama Dragging Democrats Down, They Have Lost 2014 Advantage Over GOP Because of Obamacare
Democrat’s Obamacare chickens are coming home to roost … Actions have consequences and Democrats are about to get hammered for backing the Obama lie.
Barack Obama and Democrats thought the 2010 midterm elections were a shellacking, 2014 might be even worse. According to a recent CNN poll, Democrats have lost all of their political advantage over the GOP for the 2014 elections. Republicans now hold a 49% to 48% lead in the generic ballot, which asked respondents to choose between a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district without identifying the candidates. Just last month Democrats held a 50%-42% advantage among registered voters in a generic ballot. This is a 10 point swing follows a political uproar over Obamacare, and Obama being caught lying to the American people that, “if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD!” and instead 5 plus million people and counting have lost their healthcare coverage.
Look at all those gushing Dems as Obama signs away your healthcare coverage that you liked and wanted to keep
Guess what Democrats, I guess Americans are finally learning what was in the bill that Pelosi said you just had to pass along a partisan Democrat vote.
A new CNN/ORC International poll indicates a dramatic turnaround in the battle for control of Congress in next year’s midterm elections.
Democrats a month ago held a 50%-42% advantage among registered voters in a generic ballot, which asked respondents to choose between a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district without identifying the candidates.
That result came after congressional Republicans appeared to overplay their hand in the bitter fight over the federal government shutdown and the debt ceiling.
But the Democratic lead has disappeared. A new CNN/ORC poll indicates the GOP now holds a 49%-47% edge.
Gee, I wonder why Obama delayed the enrollment period for 2015 until after the 2014 midterm elections. It couldn’t be 100% based on politics now, could it? Sadly, with many individuals in America who really needed healthcare reform and affordable coverage, Barack Obama and Democrats just used that as an excuse for a political power grab and a way for the federal government to take over 1/6th of the US economy.
DEMOCRATS OWN OBAMACARE 100% AS IT WAS PASSED ALONG A PARTISAN VOTE AND RAMMED DOWN THE THROATS OF AMERICANS WITHOUT ONE GOP VOTE …
Don’t look now but the rats are jumping off the SS Obamacare as they fear a backlash in the 2014 midterm elections. Not only is the Obamacare, Healthcare.gov web site roll out been a complete disaster, the few that have been able to log on have sticker shock at the price of what Obama and Democrats call “affordable” care. However, what is going to cause the most problems for vulnerable Democrats in 2014 and 2016 elections is that Barack Obama and Democrats knew in advance it was a lie when the Obamamessiah said … “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period! No one will take it away, no matter what.”
Lies, lies, lies!!!
The WSJ reports, Democrats Run for ObamaCare Cover:
After 16 long days of vowing to Republicans that they would not cave in any way, shape or form on ObamaCare, Democrats spent their first post-shutdown week caving in every way, shape and form. With the GOP’s antics now over, the only story now is the unrivaled disaster that is the president’s health-care law.
Hundreds of thousands of health-insurance policies canceled. Companies dumping coverage and cutting employees’ hours. Premiums skyrocketing. And a website that reprises the experience of a Commodore 64. As recently as May, Democratic consultants were advising members of Congress that their best ObamaCare strategy for 2014 was to “own” the law. Ms. Shaheen has now publicly advised the consultants where they can file that memo.
Even House liberals have felt it necessary to reassure voters that they, too, are angry—though so far they are merely calling for scalps. “I’d like to see somebody lose their job over this. I think it’s outrageous,” complained New York Rep. Sean Maloney. “Somebody’s got to man up here—get rid of these people,” said Minnesota’s Rick Nolan. This is presumably a call for a certain “somebody” to do something more than 1-800 commercials from the Rose Garden.
This Democratic freakout has been building for months, even if it was masked by the shutdown headlines and the way the media reported that event. Nationally, yes, the GOP took a drubbing on the shutdown. But next year isn’t a national election. It’s a midterm that will turn on key states, where polls all along have found disapproval of ObamaCare, the president and his party’s handling of the economy.
In Arkansas, Mr. Pryor’s home state, a poll conducted by the University of Arkansas from Oct. 10-17 found that 39% of likely voters blame Mr. Obama for the shutdown (only 27% blame congressional Republicans). Just 29% approve of Mr. Obama, and Mr. Pryor’s disapproval ratings jumped 21 points in just a year, to 44%, from 21%.
More worrisome for the Democratic senator is a recent poll conducted by OnMessage for his GOP rival Tom Cotton. Only 33% of Arkansans support ObamaCare. The number drops to 28% for independent voters. Even one-third of Democrats in the state oppose the law.
Now Democrats want to pretend like they care about “We the People”.
Teddy Turner Jr. Blames “Hanoi Jane’’ Fonda For Maing his Dad a Crazy, Moonbat Liberal … Junior is Running for Congress in South Carolina
Ted Turner Jr. told the Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show”that it was “Hanoi Jane’’ Fonda who transformer his father, Ted Turner, from a conservative to a bleeding-heart liberal. Who could not have seen that coming. When you lie with liberal dogs, you get liberal fleas. Turner Jr. claims that he grew up in a conservative home. Turner’s 180 must have been one of the greatest transformations ever. However, when you have “Hanoi” Jane as your wife, what would one expect? Ted Turner Jr. is running as a conservative for Congress in South Carolina for the House seat being vacated by Tim Scott, who today was appointed to fill the remainder of Jim DeMint’s Senate term. Turner will be running in the GOP primary against disgraced former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford. Ted Turner Jr. stated, “I’m not a liberal … People say how did you separate from your dad? I didn’t separate from my dad. My dad separated from me.’’
Listen to a blast from the past from Dana Pretzer discussing Hanoi Jane circa 2007
Ted Turner was transformed from a staunch conservative into a bleeding-heart liberal by none other than one-time wife Jane Fonda, according to the media mogul’s outspoken son. But when the senior Turner moved to the left and then expressed an interest in running for president, Fonda deep-sixed the idea by saying she’d dump him, Teddy Turner told Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’ “I was raised in a different time at the Turner household … a very conservative household with capitalism and all of that kind of stuff,’’ Turner said. But in 1991, when the senior Turner wed the Oscar-winning actress and exercise guru — once labeled “Hanoi Jane’’ for her controversial support of the North Vietnamese — things changed dramatically.
The election for the House seat for Florida’s 18th District is not over yet. US Representative Allen West (R-FL) won his legal challengeto continue the recounting of the votes. West won the court fight to have votes recounted in his Florida congressional race against Democrat Patrick Murphy. The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections ordered a retabulation of all eight days of early voting to begin Saturday morning.
Rep. Allen West’s (R-Fla.) campaign is celebrating a circuit court judge’s decision that blocked Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy’s attempt to stop a recount of early votes in St. Lucie County, a major part of Florida’s 18th District.
“Clearly, if the canvassing board has already agreed there were discrepancies and under- or over-counted ballots, it would make no sense to halt the retabulation,” West campaign manager Tim Edson said in a statement late Saturday.
Watch this election in the end fall within the margin of error where all of the votes will have to be recounted by state law.
Maryland Democratic Congressional Candidate Wendy Rosen Quits Race Amid Voter Fraud Allegations … Caught Voting in Two States, Florida & Maryland
VOTER FRAUD …
It appears that voter fraud has caused one of their own to drop out of a Congressional race. Wendy Rosen, a Maryland Democrat Congressional candidate has quit the race against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District amid voter fraud allegations. Hmm, I guess voter fraud does exist. So much for that Democrat narrative that none exists. As stated at the PJ Tatler, kinda hard to say none exists when one of your candidates has to step down because of voter fraud. Of course Democrats will find a way to spin this that this is not real voter fraud.
A Maryland Democratic candidate quit her congressional race Monday after her own party told state officials that she had committed fraud by voting in both Maryland and Florida in recent elections.
Wendy Rosen, a small-business owner running against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District, released a statement saying that “with great regret, and much sorrow” she was resigning from the contest.
“Personal issues have made this the hardest decision that I have had to make,” Rosen said
Rosen’s announcement came the same day the state Democratic party released a letter to state Attorney General Douglas Gansler and state prosecutors reporting the allegations against Rosen.
Letter issued by state Democratic party to state Attorney General Douglas Gansler and state prosecutors reporting the allegations against Rosen.
“The Maryland Democratic Party has discovered that Ms. Rosen has been registered to vote in both Florida and Maryland since at least 2006; that she in fact voted in the 2006 general election both in Florida and Maryland; and that she voted in the presidential preference primaries held in both Florida and Maryland in 2008,” wrote Yvette Lewis, the state party chair. “This information is based on an examination of the voter files from both states. We believe that this is a clear violation of Maryland law and urge the appropriate office to conduct a full investigation.”
Yet another Democrats will not seek reelection in 2012. US Representative Heath Shuler (D-NC) will not run for reelection in 2012. Shuler was first elected in 2006 as a fiscal conservative, Blue Dog Democrat who in many instances broke with Democratic leadership on issues of spending. Shuler voted against President Obama’s 2009 economic stimulus bill as well as healthcare reform. He also launched an unsuccessful attempt to oust Rep. Nancy Pelosi (CA) following the 2010 midterm election massacre.
One of the last remaining members of the Blue Dog Coalition, Shuler was hit by congressional redistricting that made his western North Carolina district much more difficult for a Democrat to win. The three-term congressman had been floated as a possible candidate for governor in North Carolina, but announced on Wednesday that he would not be running for that office.
“This was not an easy decision,” Shuler said. “However, I am confident that it is the right decision. It is a decision I have weighed heavily over the past few months. I have always said family comes first, and I never intended to be a career politician.”
Shuler stressed to reporters that family considerations were his sole reason for leaving Congress.
“I’ve got to be at home more, spend some more time with them,” said Shuler, who has a 7-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son.
Let’s face it, many things are against Shuler in 2012. He faces a tough reelection battle due to redistricting, his Democrat party has pretty much left him as it has lurches to the far left, and it is hard to imagine that Obama will carry NV as he did in 2008.
Mark Oxner Campaign Ad for Florida District 27 … “Turn This Ship Around” … ““let’s not enslave our children with debt”
And now for a campaign ad that is completely different … from Mark Oxner for Congress. Oxner appears to be running against liberal flame thrower and former Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson, who was booted out of his District 8 office in 2010. The New Times actually calls it a “slave ship,” as depicted in the ad. Really? Have the libs at the NY Times not noticed the mountain of debt that Obama has strapped future generations to come with? Sorry if this ad does not meet the NY Times politically correct standards.
From The Blaze:
File this one under wackiest political advertisement ever made — or, at the least, one of the oddest to date. You may think that I’m being dramatic here, but take a moment to watch the 39-second clip called, “Turn This Ship Around,” that was recently created and released by the Mark Oxner campaign.
Oxner, a Republican, is hoping to win the District 27 congressional seat in Florida come November. His new video, which departs wildly from more issue-based campaign pleas, is turning heads for more reasons than one.
The bizarre ad takes place on a vessel that looks like pirate ship — but with some amenities. The New Times actually calls calls it a “slave ship.” While there’s no definitive way to determine that this is, indeed, intended to invoke images and themes related to slavery, footage of children rowing the massive boat with a voiceover that says “let’s not enslave our children with debt,” only add fuel to the fire.
Just curious, when Obama and Democrats only want to increase taxes and spending on the backs of the American people and continually increase the debt on the Chinese credit card, have record numbers on food stamps, high unemployment and actually stopping a work projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline that chooses Saudi and Venezuelan oil over Canada … what else would one call it?
The proposed District 27 is supposed to encompass most of Oceola County, plus bits of Orange and Polk counties, if the map survives probable challenges in court.
That’s all folks …
Massachusetts Democrat Barney Franks will not be running for reelection in 2012. Franks blamed redistricting for his decision; however, he had a tougher than expected reelection bid in 2010. However, it probably has more to do with the fact that most of America is on to him and his “fingerprints” that were all over the 2008 financial crisis.
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection in 2012, ending a three-decade career in the House.
Frank, 71, is the top Democrat on the Financial Services Committee and the architect, with former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), of the sweeping Wall Street regulatory reform law enacted in 2010.
He announced his decision at an afternoon press conference in his hometown of Newton, Mass., where he said redistricting played a major role in his retirement.
“I was planning to run again, and then congressional redistricting came,” Frank said.
Reelection? Heck, as the Gateway Pundit reminds us, earlier this year Newt Gingrich had suggested that Barney Franks should have been jailed. The post could be subtitled, the rats are fleeing the sinking ship … Frank 17th House Democrat to announce retirement.
Democrat NC Gov. Perdue’s Office Said “Suspending Elections” was a Joke … Listen to Audio, Doen’t not Sound like a Joke
The other day it was reported that North Carolina Democrat Governor Bev Perdue stated that “elections should be suspended” for two years. Quickly her office put out the talking points that she was just making a joke and using hyperbole. Really? The Daily Caller has the audio of Perdue’s comment regarding the suspension of election. I guess that Perdue must work on her stand up comic delivery or at least provide a rim shot to emphasize the comedy.
Listen for yourself and you make the call.
“Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”
“If it was a joke, what was the set-up?,” Lockwood adds. “What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter? It took them three hours to say it was a ‘joke,’ but when that flopped it became ‘hyperbole.’ We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad idea.”
When just 17% of the American people think that the country is headed in the right direction and Democrats are headed for another 2010 shellacking in the 2012 elections, I bet those in the “Donkey” party want the elections to be suspended.
EXIT QUESTION: If Democrats are willing to suspend the US Constitution for elections, what else are they willing to suspend it for? I wonder if Democrats would be asking for the suspension of elections if they thought they were predicted to remain in power?
Pelosi & Dems Must Fear the Disgruntled Blue Dogs … Ready to Break Ranks & Cut Deals with Republicans
It would appear that House Democrat Minority leader Nancy Pelosi has a difficult next two years in store for her. Disgruntled “Blue Dog” Democrats are ready to deal with the GOP and break ranks with Pelosi. So many “blue dogs” were voted out of office in the 2010 midterm elections as upset voters showed them the door for voting with Pelosi rather than the will of their constituents.
Blue Dog Democrats remain deeply frustrated with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s leadership and are signaling they are ready to break ranks and cut deals with Republicans.
In an interview with Roll Call last week, the leadership team of the fiscally conservative group talked about its vision for the 112th Congress — and its frustration over how Pelosi ran the 111th.
