Pathetic … NAACP Ignores South Carolina’s Tim Scott & Utah’s Mia Love’s Historic 2014 Election Wins (Video)
What does NAACP stand for … Advancement of Colored People, I guess it only matters if they are liberal Democrats.
The NAACP should be ashamed of itself. The following was a statement provided by Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP following the 2014 midterm elections:
“This election was not about who won but the rather the citizens who lost the right to participate. This first election post the Shelby vs. Holder decision resulted in problems in every single state previously protected by the Voting Rights Act. For 49 years, these states were singled out because they had a history of discriminating against American voters. The Election Protection Hotline we manned with other concerned organizations fielded over 18,000 calls yesterday, many in those same states previously protected by the VRA. As we move forward—it is imperative that our newly elected Congress work with the NAACP and our partners to pass Voting Rights Act Amendment legislation that assures that all Americans have the franchise—our very democracy depends on it.”
What the NAACP failed to mention in their post 2014 election statement was the historic wins by Tim Scott and Mia Love. Are you kidding me? How do you not celebrate all blacks, no matter whether you happen to agree or not with their politics. Tim Scott’s win on Tuesday, November 4th made him the first African-American elected to the US Senate from the South since Reconstruction. That is quite an accomplishment. Also, the NAACP failed to mention that Mia Love was the first black Republican woman to be elected to the House of Representatives.
How does an organization that claims to be about the advancement of blacks fail to mention such note worthy and historic accomplishments? Sadly, the NAACP is all about liberal politics, not the advancement of a race.
Barack Obama is Trumanesque … Obama Loses More House of Representative Seats Than Any President Since Harry Truman
Many have tried to say that Obama was Lincolnesque and Reaganesque, wrong … but he does appear to be Trumanesque!
Never has a narcissist and a bunch of mind numb, Kool-aid drinking robots ever been so wrong.
BARACK OBAMA SETS ANOTHER RECORD: In 2008 Barack Obama was touted as “the one we had been waiting for”. Obama was supposed to be the president that transcended all and was the bridge to the future. WRONG!!! It turned out that Barack Obama has been the most polarizing president and probably the worst US president in modern times. Obama has not just been bad for America, he has been disastrous for his Democrat party. During this past 2014 midterm election Barack Obama lost another 16 House seats. Back in 2010, Barack Obama lost 63 House seats. Form the mathematically, common core challenged, that is a total of 79 House seats. That is the most House seats lost for any president since Harry S. Truman. With House districts being so gerrymandered these days, that is an incredible number of lost seats.
Not since Harry S. Truman in 1950 has a sitting president lost more House seats in two midterm elections
President Barack Obama is about to do what no president has done in the past 50 years: Have two horrible, terrible, awful midterm elections in a row.
In fact, Obama is likely to have the worst midterm numbers of any two-term president going back to Democrat Harry S. Truman.
Truman lost a total of 83 House seats during his two midterms (55 seats in 1946 and 28 seats in 1950), while Republican Dwight Eisenhower lost a combined 66 House seats in the 1954 and 1958 midterms.
Obama had one midterm where his party lost 63 House seats, and Democrats are expected to lose another 5 to possibly 12 House seats (or more), taking the sitting president’s total midterm House loses to the 68 seat to 75 seat range.
WAVE ELECTION 2014 … Emperor Barack Obama Has No Clothes and No Authority To Tell Anyone His Radical Liberal Agenda is Wanted by Americans
Call it what you will, a political tsunami, tidal wave or butt kicking … the end result is Emperor Obama has no clothes, no radical leftist agenda and no future.
If last night’s 2014 midterm election was a Little League baseball game, they would have called it early on the mercy rule. If it was a high school football game they would have kept the clock running and if it were a boxing match they ref would have called the fight for the safety and health of the boxer. Make no mistake about it, the American people spoke and it was a complete and total repudiation of Obama, Democrats and their liberal, failed agenda.
- House Republicans are looking at their largest majority since 1928 according unofficial results from last night’s election.
- Senate Republicans picked up a net gain of 7 seats with 2 races still in question in Alaska and a Louisiana runoff that will most likely both go to the GOP.
- Republicans were supposed to have a net loss of governorships, yet now find GOP governors in the deep blue states of Massachusetts, Illinois and Maryland.
The era of the Barack Obama – Harry Reid gridlock is over.
Hmm … Look what happen when Team Obama, Democrats and the IRS are not affecting elections.
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.
Republican David Jolly Defeats Democrat Alex Sink in Florida Special Election for #FL13 … In a District Obama won in 2008 & 2012
A sign of things to come for the upcoming 2014 midterm elections … Republicans defeat Democrats in special election vote in Florida, a district that Obama was twice.
Republican David Jolly has defeated Democrat Alex Sink to win the special election in Florida’s 13th district. Despite being outspent 4 to 1, despite being the lesser known candidate and despite being behind in polls ahead of the special election, Jolly defeated Sink 48.5% to 46.5%. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8%. OUCH, that is going to leave a stinging mark on Democrats. Is this a harbinger of things to come this Fall? Although the seat has been held by a popular Republican for years, Barack Obama carried the district in 2008 by 8.2% and in 2012 by 5.6% . This is a perfect example of a snap shot in time to see just how unpopular Obama has become and namely, Obamacare. Florida-13 is a swing district in a swing state that covers most of Pinellas County between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, including parts of St. Petersburg.
Republican David Jolly narrowly defeated Democrat Alex Sink in the special election for Florida’s 13th District on Tuesday in an unusually expensive race watched closely by both parties as the midterm election season kicks into high gear.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Jolly beat Sink, 48.5 percent to 46.6 percent, according to The Associated Press.
Both Democrats and the GOP plowed millions of dollars into the swing district race in hopes of an election year boost. The results appeared to vindicate the strategy of the GOP, which focused its attacks on linking Sink to Obamacare and managed to win with an untested candidate who had frustrated many in the national party.
Sink was “ultimately brought down because of her unwavering support for Obamacare, and that should be a loud warning for other Democrats running coast to coast,” National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Greg Walden said in a statement.
The folks on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ had to admit that this is a devastating blow to Democrats and Democrat moral for the 2014 elections. Republicans in Washington thought that Jolly was a bad candidate. Doesn’t that show how much the GOP establishment knows? This stinging defeat of a Democrat hand-picked, centrist candidate, who had previously run for Florida governor shows the rest of the Democrat politicians that they cannot run on the notion that Obamacare is good. One has to wonder whether Obama will be asked to campaign in any states or districts unless they are absolute sure races or a Democrat running unopposed.
As stated at the Tampa Bay Tribune, David Jolly’s victory Tuesday in the U.S. House District 13 special election represents a clear repudiation of Obamacare.
Powerline weighs in on the impact of Florida 13′s special election, Dave Wasserman, the editor of the non-partisan Cook Political Report and certainly not a Republican operative, says “If Dems couldn’t win an Obama congressional district with a solid candidate against a flawed R, expect a rough November.”
Please do not confuse Dave Wasserman and Liberal Florida House Democrat election denier Debbie Wasserman-Schultz who said last night following the Democrat defeat, that the Democrat loss in special election shows GOP weakness. Really Debbie, you can say that with a straight face, eh? Next thing Debbie will be telling folks, if you like your helthcare plan, you can keep it.
“Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican congressional district that they’ve comfortably held for nearly 60 years. Tonight, Republicans fell short of their normal margin in this district because the agenda they are offering voters has a singular focus – that a majority of voters oppose – repealing the Affordable Care Act that would return us to the same old broken health care system,” Wasserman Schultz said in a DNC rapid response statement.

Let the Democrat ostrich head in the sand spin begin and them shaking in their collection boots when the camera is off.
