GOP DEMS

A GOP strategist has declared that the week of the Midterm Elections “was a dark week for Republicans, and for everyone who wants to see America remain the world’s most vibrant, most powerful nation.” What the HELL! Where was he?

Out of the total of 36% of eligible voters who voted in this year’s election, even if Republicans averaged a 10% margin of victory over Dems overall (55% to 45%), that means only 19% of American voters voted for Republicans. So Democrats should be running scared because 81% of U.S. voters didn’t vote for Republicans?

What do you do now that Republicans won a wave election? Just what Republicans did when Democrats won wave elections in 2008 and 2012. Become intransigent and refuse to work with them because America made clear they want a President who’ll block Republicans and represent their values. Easy peasy!

I knew things were going to go badly in NY. I am no spring chicken, and the vast majority of voters were older than me (we’re trending into the 60-90 year old range).

Dems loser

The halo effect. Tip O’Neill said that all politics are local. Not last night. All politics were national. 6 years of negativity about the President paid off. Every election was a test of Obama’s popularity.

Dumb Dumber GOP

Too many Americans have become “dumb” voters, they vote on little more than emotion. They feel upset at DC so they knee jerk vote for the party that doesn’t control the White House…even though it is the party they’re voting for that has caused the problems that led to their being upset.

GOP crushes Dems

A lot of money has been spent on a tiny Missouri state assemby race by the GOP….by our estimates six times the average. Why? There is no way she was ever going to win. Why throw so much money at so small a race?
The Grand Strategy at Work!

Square Peg in a Round Hole

Has this ever worked? Have Democrats ever succeeded as a party by agreeing with Republicans, “I suppose you’re right, The President from our party IS a dick!”? If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, the Democratic Party may need to hold its next convention in Arkham Asylum.

Cowardly Boehner - PPOV

As part of their attempt to soften their image with voters just ahead of of next week’s election, top names from the GOP have donned their Halloween costumes and are offering a trick…or treat…for America.

Mitch McConnell

The Republican tension between satisfying the base and appealing to the entire electorate will be made significantly worse if the party controls both houses of Congress. The Republicans will get almost none of the practical things they want, and their political headaches will be multiplied.

Martha Coakley reminds me of Hillary Clinton to the extent that she is clearly intelligent, cares about the issues, yet fails to connect to the citizenry.

The Core Thesis: Authoritarian people have a stronger emotional need for an outlet like Fox, where they can find affirmation and escape factual challenges to their beliefs.

Midterms Big Money

Democrats this election have done a good job attracting a lot of big on the record public donors, but Republicans appear to have the big advantage when it comes to big secret donors. $794 Million for the GOP vs. $463 Million for the Dems. That’s a $331 Million advantage for the GOP.

GOP Dems Masks Small

The vast majority of politicians run in whatever direction will get them the most votes. Liberals will pretend to be conservatives on pivotal issues (knowing that their base will still vote for them) to pick up some conservative votes.

In Texas we have a Republican Governor who has deregulated a lot of the businesses and cut government agencies that are needed. Deregulation is one of their top talking points.
