How O can help dems
take the House

New York Post, by Michael Barone

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/18/2013 6:54:50 AM

President Obama has said that he wants to help Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives. He says he looks forward to Nancy Pelosi being speaker again. If he does work hard to elect House Democrats, it will be a change from 2010 and 2012, when he didn’t do much at all for them. But let’s say he does. What are the chances of success? Certainly not zero. Democrats need to gain 17 seats to win a House majority of 218. That’s fewer than the number of seats that changed party in 2006, 2008 and 2010.

Just the thought of the Democrats taking the House ruined my day. With all the voter fraud and the msm kissing Obama´s backside it could easily happen, Then the real "fundamentally change" America will happen and what he does with a majority in both houses of Congress will destroy this country as founded forever. Look out gun confiscation, drone strikes, immediate amnesty with voting rights etc.

While I have always respected Barone and his warnings should be heeded, this seems like lot of chicken little hand wringing. We have to look at the loss of 5 seats by the Republicans in ´12, more closely.
Every lefty ´journolist´ has exploited it as evidence that the Republican Party is losing relevance, drifting to the extreme right and will soon go over the cliff. But the Democrat gain comes from ten seats gained in Illinois and California redistricting. The Republicans actually gained five seats in the rest of the 48 (or 55 take your pick) states. This manna is not available to Pelosi any more. Every House Republican has been returned with a margin greater than Zippy.
While due caution and vigilance is required IMO there is no reason for unnecessary alarm here.

Actually #4 - zippy is getting a lot of help from Republicans who vote and act more like Democrats than Republicans. I´m certain it´s time for my RINO to go, and I´ll vote for the Dem next time. Sadly, the net result will be the same, other than at least the Dem will be honest up front how they are voting.

If the Democrats think Obama is going to lift a finger beyond a little window dressing for PR´s sake to help Democrats win the House, they all have a big suprise coming.

He didn´t do it in 2010 or 2012 and is setting up his Obama for America whatever it is for his future, so why will he change.

Besides, after 2017, he´s on his own for golf trips.

#6, now is the time to help get a conservative going for the primary - so you have a clear choice between the libtard and a conservative.

Hopefully the pubbies are working now in the swing states they control to get voter id in place, line up vote fraud observers (and protect them from getting kicked out) and move to award an electoral college elector for each district based on how the district votes - neutralizing any cheating the libtards manage in their pest hole cities.

Fortunately the gerrymandering of districts to assure the election of racial minorities has left lots of districts with solid Republican majorities. The House will be forever Republican.

There is obamacare coming on line, stagnant GDP, record chronic unemployment, and rising gas & food prices. Another catastrophe in waiting is the weak sisters Kerry & Hagle at state & defense.
If America was of the fabric of citizens that propelled it to the world´s superpower it once was, this article would not even be printed, and barry would have been decimated. Now, who knows? Since November, I have come to the conclusion that we´re trying to save something that only exists in our memory.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has said the grassroots revolution sweeping across the country today mirrors the one that propelled Ronald Reagan to the White House, and the conservative stalwart said that Breitbart.com represents the democratization of the news that was once controlled by just a few elites in the legacy press. Appearing on the inaugural edition of Breitbart News Saturday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, Cruz said that "what Breitbart does is so important" because it helps conservatives bypass those in the legacy media who once were the sole gatekeepers.

In what’s become a recurring theme, the weekly addresses of President Obama and congressional Republicans offered a preview of the two sides’ political strategies heading into this fall’s midterm elections. Mr. Obama and his fellow Democrats are pushing an income-equality agenda that includes a hike in the nation’s minimum wage and more federal investment into manufacturing, infrastructure, education, and other areas. The GOP, on the other hand, continues to zero in on the president’s health-care reform law and its negative consequences, a tack the party is sure to continue heading toward the November contests. In his weekly speech, the president

Baghdad -More than 700 people died in violence in Iraq in February, not including nearly 300 reported deaths in western Anbar province, where security forces have been battling Sunni Muslim rebels since January, the United Nations said on Saturday. The world body said local authorities had recorded 298 civilian deaths in Anbar, but that it could not confirm the figures independently due to the chaos in the desert region. Outside Anbar, the bloodshed was worst in Baghdad, where 239 civilians were killed, followed by Salahuddin province to the north with 121 dead. A total of 1,381 people were wounded.

The creators of Northern Kentucky’s controversial Creation Museum say enough money has been raised to proceed with a new biblical theme park built around a 510-foot replica of Noah’s Ark. Ken Ham, the president of Answers in Genesis who gained national attention earlier this month after a debate with Bill Nye the Science Guy, said that after a recent bond offering “the funding is in place” to start building the “Ark Encounter” park on an 800-acre site in Grant County, Ky.

Senate Democrats will not write a budget for the next fiscal year. One year after writing and passing the first Senate Democratic budget resolution in four years, Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) said her conference will not make an effort in the 2014 midterm election year. In a statement, Murray said there was no reason to do a fiscal 2015 budget after the two-year deal struck in December with House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). That deal set budget ceilings for the 2014 and 2015 fiscal years. The 2015 fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. “Fiscal Year

Russian President Vladimir Putin received permission Saturday from parliament to mobilize the country´s military in Ukraine. Parliament voted unanimously on the request and also recommended that Moscow´s ambassador be recalled from Washington over earlier comments made by President Obama. Putin says the move is needed to protect ethnic Russians and the personnel of a Russian military base in Ukraine´s strategic region of Crimea. The request comes a day after President Obama warned Moscow that "there will be costs" if it intervenes militarily in Ukraine. "I´m submitting a request for using the armed forces of the Russian

Americans take justifiable pride in the freedoms given to them by nature or God and enshrined in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. As we seem to be finding out day after day, however, those rights are no longer of any real value; they are, as James Madison suspected they would be, “parchment barriers” against the encroachment of government and a population conditioned to believe that rights originate with that government, not from a higher power. Founding philosophy believed that the legitimacy of government sprang from defending rights inherent to human beings; if the government were to violate those rights, it

Sure, he was joking, but we all know that in some way or another, there is truth to that statement. We didn´t get much more info besides Obama revealing that "researchers who invent some of the most advanced metals on the planet; designers who are modeling prototypes in the digital cloud; folks from the Pentagon who help to support their work" are involved with a "secret project we´ve been working on for a while."

A federal court has ruled that an American school student has a right to free expression -- unless that American might be threatened for that expression by others, in which case state officials have the right to quash the offending expression to appease potential aggressors. Which, ipso facto, means Americans have no right to free expression at all. For if it’s not the government’s role to protect expression that is thought to be offensive by a vicious mob, what purpose does the First Amendment have? “Safe” expression needs no protection, after all. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled upon the constitutionality of a decision

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids.

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins.

The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West.

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.
