First Off, let it be known, I used the search option first with negative results.
Now,,,,,To the Article.
The title is, Democrats have no hope of taking over the House, so don't come here and Bash or Flame me for your Disapponitment and Hurt Feelings!


Beside after all the Scandals and the Poor Performance of ACA and not to mention the illegals Obama has invited into our Country, I can't blame the Voters or the Democrat Politicians running for election distancing themselves from Obama and his Agenda. Can you?
It is Very True, people are not Happy with their Old republican Rep. and would send him / her home, but their Even More Unhappy With Obamas Minions and Thugs,,,,,,,


Yet Republicans are forecast to pick up as many as a dozen U.S. House seats this November, strengthening their grip on the House majority. "I'd rather be us than them," crows Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., who chairs the House GOP's 2014 campaign operation.



President Obama's waning popularity is part of a political climate suggesting that Democrats cannot expect a "wave" election to turn the tide in their favor.
Democrats and Republicans are locked in a competitive struggle over who will control the U.S. Senate next year. But barring a seismic political event between now and Election Day, the GOP's control of the U.S. House is not in question. Here's why.

I know, I know, you didn't want to see those words in type did you,,,,,,

In 2012, congressional district lines were redrawn, as is constitutionally required every 10 years, based on population shifts. Republicans had the upper hand in many states after the GOP won control of governorships and state legislatures following the 2010 Tea Party wave. The end result has been a precipitous drop in the number of competitive seats and a rise in the number of seats considered so safely Republican or Democratic that they are unlikely to ever switch party control.

So,,, What are the Democrats going to do, What is their Plan,,, or better yet, Ask yourself this, Have They Already Implemented This Plan YET? Think About It!!!

To Democrats' advantage, their long-term future includes a broader, more diverse and expanding base of young people, women and minorities.


"I am absolutely sure (turnout) will be lower than 2010 or 2006," says Curtis Gans, an expert on voter turnout. While Gans is more bullish on Democrats' prospects than most election handicappers, he also maintains that Democrats can't take back the House this year.

Yes, Not This Year, Not Yet,,,Long term Goal,,,, here like my Old Communist Masters in Beijing,,,,,

Democrats are laying the groundwork for that election by building better voter databases, registering voters and solidifying their support among women and minority voters, especially Hispanics.

Current Democrats in office need the money for their campaign but don't really want Obama in their neighborhood,,,,,, I think.


While Obama has worked to build the campaign war chests of the House and Senate Democratic campaign operations this year, he's been largely absent on the campaign trail, where Democrats in tight races are seeking to portray themselves as independent of the president and his agenda. "They have to run from their leaders; they cannot embrace them," Walden said. "The only thing they can embrace is the fundraising."

Dems,,,, Read and Weep,,,



What is clear is that the 2014 election is unlikely to change Obama's loyal GOP opposition in Congress. In fact, if House Republicans' achieve Walden's stated goal of an 11-seat gain, or a 245-seat majority, next January would usher in the biggest GOP House majority since the Hoover administration.

Not sure if you're saying it's a good thing that none of that stuff will take place, but starred your post.


minimum wage, infrastructure legislation, immigration, women's rights,, alternative energy spending, clean water legislation, safe food legislation, clean air legislation, corporate corruption legislation,

ALL OF WHICH needs to be addressed, in my opinion. As for union busting - no, I think unions were a benefit to middle-class/working class Americans...

Just my opinioin.

But, Yes. Two more years of obstructionist school-yard crap, and NO MOVEMENT. Thanks to the puerile GOP.

As to the OP:
I hate doomporn. This reminds me of Brownback, who was soundly CHALLENGED in the primaries by a rival GOP unknown - and he then blames Obama for the poor turnout and the 1/3 that the unknown (Jennifer Winn) carried on Tuesday. The GOP needs to get its collective head disengaged from its collective backside.

I sort of disagree with the claim that voter turnout will be even lower this election and the reason I think that is wrong is because in many states such as my own MJ in one form or another is on the ballot which has gotten the attention of a lot of people who usually do not care about mid term elections. That is my opinion but I guess we will see come November.

We have Dems until they piss us off.
Then we have Reps until they piss us off.
Then we have Dems until they piss us off.
Then we have Reps until they piss us off.

Do we see a pattern here?

Abolish Dems and Reps as being bad for national security.

just for the record, it took both parties to end up as a socialist country, and it will not likely change any time soon. the corporate corruption thing is even worse now than it was during bush. and it was even worse during bush than it was during clinton, etc. one thing you can set your watch by is that it keeps getting worse, regardless of who is at the helm, so i don't think it's going to suddenly change if there is more of one party than the other in any particular spot. ditto on most of the other stuff. and were it to improve, a thing that seems almost unbelievable, it would be some time before we realized the improvement at the grass roots level.

everybody knew that was coming. all they had to do was show him on tv taking over businesses and firing the employees. in a country where jobs are scarce and the people unhappy about that, it was the worst possible PR. and i think that was on purpose -- convince somebody to run that has so many skeletons in their closet, that they can't possibly win, so that your chosen candidate looks great by comparison. it also put a huge conservative group -- mormons - at odds with ron paul. yep, those power brokers know how to work it, don't they?

I lean toward thinking that Dems will lose the Senate and have virtually zero chance of gaining the House. But it has a lot more to do with luck than politics. Poll after poll shows that America is sick and goddamn tired of Republicans, whether they are RINOs, "Libertarians" or stock GOP. Americans are also sick of Dems because they compromise too much. The country seems to be wanting to pull Left but actual Left has very little representation or even candidates running. So instead we have Democrats disenfranchised. Combine that with the States that have Senate seats up for grabs and fizzle.

But maybe it should happen, maybe it has to... sometimes you have to hit rock bottom, blah blah blah. I think with a Republican controlled Congress and they actually try to put in place the BS they've been spewing, they will be lighting the fuse to a massive powder keg.

Harry Reid, leader of he democrat Senate majority has denied votes in over 300 bills passed in the House.

The do-nothing congress is a lie.

It's a do-nothing Senate majority leader who is blocking any and all reform.

That's Very True, But the MSM, doesn't exactly give credit where credit is do does it.


The Washington Post reports. “So few bills have been approved this year, and so little else has gotten done, that many senators say they are spending most of their time on insignificant and unrewarding work.”



Check out the stats. Even Democrats have complained about the Senate’s obstruction, and one actually said he was “furious.” When President Obama tried to blame Republicans, his rhetoric didn’t match reality and fact-checkers called him out for it, noting the dozens of jobs bills listed on speaker.gov/jobs that Senate Democrats are currently blocking.
Here are just 10 of them, ranked in order of bipartisan support:
The Hire More Heroes Act (H.R. 3474) passed the House on March 11, 2014, with support from 183 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The Success and Opportunity through Quality Charter Schools Act (H.R. 10) passed the House on May 9, 2014, with support from 158 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The Innovation Act (H.R. 3309) passed the House on December 5, 2013, with support from 130 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The Cybersecurity Information Sharing and Protection Act (H.R. 624) passed the House on April 18, 2013, with support from 92 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The American Research and Competitiveness Act (H.R. 4438) passed the House on May 9, 2014, with support from 62 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act (H.R. 4457) passed the House on June 12, 2014, with support from 53 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act (H.R. 6) passed the House on June 25, 2014, with support from 46 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The S Corporation Permanent Tax Relief Act (H.R. 4453) passed the House on June 12, 2014, with support from 42 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act (H.R. 2218) passed the House on July 25, 2013, with support from 39 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
The Small Business Capital Access and Job Preservation Act (H.R. 1105) passed the House on December 4, 2013, with support from 36 Democrats. The Senate has done nothing.
“These are just a few of the examples of what Republicans are working on to foster more economic growth and more job creation in our country,” Speaker Boehner said last week. “For the nearly four years of our majority, Republicans have stayed focused on the economy and on jobs. We’ve listened to the American people. Their priorities are our priorities.”

Yes, The Democrats, The Party that Cares for the Little People,,,,,,

I am hoping that the GOP takes the senate.

With the GOP in control of both the house and senate the only thing Obama can do is veto everything he does not like.

The American people will then see what is really going on.

Because the GOP will hit his desk with a 100 plus good for the america bills that obama will not like and will veto.

Then the people will start questioning what Obama and the democrats are really doing and what he really supports.

We are not a Socialist country.


we have the following social programs:

- social welfare (food and housing)
- social insurance for old age
- socialized infrastructure maintenance
- social benefits for minorities and women
- social benefits for corporations
- socialized medicine
- socialized education
- socialized benefit packages for college students
- a socialized propaganda department
- war paid for via socializing the cost
- socialist intelligence structures
- universities filled with socialist professors

both sides are socialist, and there is virtually no difference in their long term goals and strategies nor the form of government they wish to have. there was no difference between stalin and hitler. communism and fascism are the exact same thing,

Those are not socialized things... that is welfare. Socialism is solution to the need for welfare. Socialism is worker ownership of the means of production vs what we have, capitalism where money makes money off exploiting those without.

That's my point. Thanks. Man. We keep hearing from the righties and lefties about how awesome this and that is and they forget the centrist voters. The ones that actually decide the vote(well, as much as the PTB allow them to). They don't listen to the daily swill. And a lot of voters just vote for the devil they know. That said, "We're not the Democrats" platform isn't winning the GOP any votes.
