There’s a video of Wall Street Journal’s “Campaign Journal” saying that Democrats could lose more than sixty House seats. The previous record was 52 seats, set the LAST time a Democrat president led a Democrat Congress. Way to go, SanFran Nan. You and your pal Barry Hussein have led to the greatest destruction of a major political party in U.S. history.

I’m Thinking of a Number Between 48 and A Lot
By Patrick O’Connor
Tuesday night will be a bad one for Democrats. But how bad?
Let’s survey the political soothsayers: The Rothenberg Political Report now predicts Republicans could take somewhere between 55 and 65 Democratic seats “with gains at or above 70 seats possible.” The Cook Political Report says the Democratic losses could total somewhere between 48 and 60 seats “with higher losses possible.”
Nate Silver, whose FiveThirtyEight blog makes predictions based on a weighted average of available polling, puts the number at 53 – and offers no caveats.
“The midterm maelstrom pulling House Democrats under shows no signs of abating, if anything it has intensified,” wrote the folks at the Cook Political Report. “House Democrats are suffering the full violence of this national undertow.”
With the hours ticking down to Nov. 2, the field of imperiled races seems to keep expanding for Democrats. Just this week, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee started spending money to defend Reps. Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona, Ron Klein in Florida and Chris Murphy in Connecticut, among others, according to disclosures filed with the Federal Election Commission. Rothenberg puts a total of 98 seats held by Democrats in play, with only nine Republican-held seats in the contested column.
Mr. Silver at FiveThirtyEight hasn’t officially turned out the lights for House Democrats. They still have a 17% chance of retaining the House, he says, but adds: “their chances of doing so essentially boil down to there being systemic errors in the polling” and the other indicators he uses to compile predictions.
Carnac the Magnificent would be having a ball.
When Obama took power, hat-in-hand Republican leaders came to him to offer compromise and provide their ideas. Obama arrogantly and dismissively told them, “I won.”
No compromise. Thus began the Obama regime. Total Democrat control, with rabidly leftist agenda after agenda rammed down America’s throat, like it or not. The stimulus. ObamaCare.
Recently Obama demonstrated that he hadn’t learned a single thing about compromise in two years of failed governance. He told Republicans, “We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.”
Is that not racist enough for you? How about this one from our disgrace of a president:
“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.”
We’re literally going to need a white Rosa Parks to tell Obama that she isn’t getting up to ingratiate herself to his despicable, immoral and perverse agenda.
It’s not Islamic terrorists who are our enemies in the United Socialist States of Obamastan; it’s white people who vote Republican. And if you are a racist Democrat, you need to punish Americans. Hurt them. Destroy them. Break them.
And if the economy goes under in the process, GOOD! Because Obama has his glorious Cloward-Piven strategy to first cripple America, and then “fundamentally transform it” as a socialist utopia. And if you happen to get mowed under and turned into mulch in the process, well, great change always has consequences and casualties.
Obama will lead this country to ruin, like Ahab pursuing the white whale come what may. “Change” is clearly not in him when it comes to changing his own pathological agenda.
The only problem is that the American people aren’t quite the sheep that the rest of the world have turned into. At least, not yet.
