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.

The headline in the National Review, same article, is: ~~Will the House Go Democratic?~~

Let us all work to make that NOT happen.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees. The field of finance

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
