GOP grows confident of Senate takeover
Politico, by James Hohmann

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/10/2014 5:56:18 AM

At an annual gathering of Republican bigwigs in Florida a year ago, a top GOP strategist was chided after he gave a presentation about how his party would win the Senate in 2014, including a handout that blared “MAJORITY” in red. “Stop saying majority,” donors, consultants and even some senators told National Republican Senatorial Committee Executive Director Rob Collins, he recalled in an interview. “Just say you’re going to be able to pick up a few seats.” Fast forward to early this month, when the annual event took place again at the same posh Palm Beach resort. Far from preaching caution, many

So the ´establishment´ thinks they got what it takes to win this time,huh? Are we once again going to have to choose between democrat and democrat-lite? What good does it do to have a GOP majority in Congress if they simply hide under their beds and pee their pants every time Obama circumvents the law? Where is their proposal for demolishing Obamacare? Are they going to ram amnesty down our throats like democrats?

Frankly, I think i´ve become so jaded about politicians especially in the past 6 years or so, that I´m almost to the point where I don´t care anymore. The only Senators worth their paychecks are the likes of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. And they are treated like pariahas by these very ´confident´ establishment types. Wish someone could come up with a backbone meter to help us out on election day. And btw, if the GOP can´t win this time in red states NC, LA, and AR, they might as well hang it up.

I agree, but those wins are going to difficult when so many of our own are withholding moral, financial or physical support. Pique could spell doom for a Senate majority.

No Palin, no conservatives. We must elect status quo.
Funny how one has to use liberal opinion pieces in order to make that case.

Prior to the 2012 elections (and the comments made by the establishment republicans following that debacle), this headline would have filled me with hope. Now I look at it as just more of the same degenerate, corrupt politicians changing faces and places, but the result is the same and not good for my country.

"Pride goeth before a fall..." Did we learn nothing from the election in 2012? Someone take the microphone from the NRSC Executive Chairman. Enthusiasm is one thing, a big mouth is another.

#2 We are not your "own". If we disagree with the methods and beliefs of the GOP Establishment, we are not compelled to provide financial, moral and physical support.

Recalling a bunch of news stories and editorials over the last month or two, the GOP Establishment wants rid of the Tea Party Republicans and wishes to go it alone. So be it.

It´s laughable to announce your majority (even to your own members) in February prior to the election in November. That is what Republicans did in 2012 prior to that election and we know how that turned out.

Ok, so you´re sitting around wishing and hoping for Dem victories in 2014 to teach some amorphous "establishment" a lesson.

Then what?

I´m wishing and hoping and working for big victories in many states in 2014, giving the GOP the Senate majority we must have, an increased hold on the House and if that upsets some of you, too bad.

"Don´t let the Democrats win" isn´t much of a strategy, or a slogan.

How about if the current GOP leaders actually accomplish something other than immigration reform that is opposed by the country? I need a reason to vote for a candidate, other than voting against their opponent.

If someone can list actual accomplishments, I will consider them. The problem is, I cannot think of anything significant.

Poster #2 worries that ´"Pique could spell doom for a Senate majority."

It is not pique, but rather the failure of the Statist/ Establishment RNC Elites to connect with the Conservative base, that is far more likely to spell doom for a Republican majority in the Senate.

Of course, denigrating a principled Conservative stance to a mere "pique" is simply one more sign that the EE´s are willing to consign their party to permanent minority status in order to protect their share of the federal dole and to maintain abortion as their social sacrament.

Do they think they can win without the TEA party ?
Rove and the elites have indoctrinated many of our Republicans with the wrong message.
The Framers assumed that all politicians had the GOOD of the America at heart, and would humbly serve a term and then go home.
I suggest all candidates go back and read some of Ronald Reagan´s speeches so they may understand how far off message the Republican party has gone.
Liberals and Progressives get away with calling US "extreme"?
Lower taxes, Constitutional laws, smaller Government, the Rights of the Individual are now EXTREME?

The RINO apoligists and progressive appeasers are at it again. (D)em-lites good, Conservatives bad. I pay little attention to such drivel.
The republican establishment is in it for themselves. They are corrupt, power over principle progressives. I have little respect for them and their camp followers.
But there is hope...Cruz, Lee, other Conservatives are ready to make a difference, if only the camp followers would stop drinking the (D)em-liter kool aid and force the establishment republican to Conservative values and principles.

I will offer to you that the corrupt RINO tactics of embracing the Chamber of Commerce, big labor and crony capitalists to assault and marginalize TPers, fill the RINO political war chests and kowtow to the progressives is corrosive and corrupt. They and their ilk have not earned my vote.
They could get my vote if they clean up their act, return to principle conservatism, and stand their ground and not flee in the face of underhanded progressive political maneuvering.

#8. Significant accomplishments? Are you kidding? Bet we can´t even find any insignificant accomplishments!
Seriously, the ´don´t let the D´s win´ cliche´ is our ´moderates´ mantra, who stand for nothing. It´s just some kind of power thing for them. Predictably, they go ballistic whenever posters insist that conservative principles are a bedrock for sound governance. Nothing will change in DC until voters grasp that these frauds and hustlers are the essence of the problem!

From manicures to motorcycles, four Little League crooks in three states used team funds for more than baseballs, bats and celebratory ice cream cones. Thanks to community kindness, it’s still game-on this spring. With the start of a new baseball season comes a disheartening stat that makes you worry not just for the national pastime, but for the nation itself: In less than a year, four little league presidents have been charged with looting their organization´s treasury.

Eco-extremists can often be heard expressing their frustration that more people don’t take their climate change alarm-mongering more seriously. I realize this is just one guy, but… that’s partially because of moments like this. So brilliant. Labour peer Viscount Simon, 73, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions” resulting from the UK’s unusually high consumption of baked beans. He put energy and climate change minister Baroness Verma on the spot during the government’s daily question session in the upper chamber. … Lord Simon said: “In a programme some months ago on the BBC it was stated that this country has the

From 1964 to 1968, close to 34,000 Americans died in South Vietnam. We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Ukraine: Special Forces Sent to Eastern City

KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukrainian special forces were deployed Sunday to an eastern city where armed pro-Russia men seized a police headquarters and the Security Service office, the interior minister said. Arsen Avakov wrote on his Facebook page that the "separatists" who seized the buildings in Slovyansk had opened fire on the approaching troops. This claim could not immediately be confirmed. The unrest in Slovyansk and the nearby major industrial city Donetsk were the latest shows of spiraling anger in eastern Ukraine, which has a large Russian-speaking population and was also the support base for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president ousted in February

It was the best of hugs; it was the worst of hugs. Or so the description might have gone had Charlie Crist labored a bit longer on his new memoir, in which the erstwhile governor of Florida—who is now campaigning for the job again—relives the fateful embrace with President Obama that he claims sunk his political fortunes in 2009. Rather than try for style, Crist renders the moment with the racy, staccato gusto that one might expect from a pulpy romance. “We shook hands. The new president leaned forward and gave me a hug.

A FedEx truck crossed a freeway and slammed head-on into a bus carrying students in Northern California, killing 10 people, authorities said Friday. The collision Thursday evening killed both drivers, five students and three chaperones, said Lt. Bill Carpenter with the California Highway Patrol. At least 34 people were taken to local hospitals, authorities said. The bus was taking students from various Los Angeles-area schools to visit Humboldt State University in Arcata. The collision occurred in Orland, about 100 miles north of Sacramento. In a statement, the university said it got word of the crash but was working to find out more details. "Our thoughts

Rolling Stone’s Constitution cover is in need of an amendment. The cover of the storied rock magazine’s latest issue features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a faulty U.S. Constitution inked on her back. Just above her derriere sits the signature of one of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers, John Hancock. There’s only one problem, however: John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution. Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, actually signed the Declaration of Independence. His autograph on that document is so stylish and large, in fact, that it inspired the use of his full name as a synonym for

When a business acquaintance insulted Jose Manuel Martinez´s daughter, Martinez put two bullets in the man´s head, officials said. It was a matter "of family honor," Errek Jett, an Alabama prosecutor, said Wednesday. But it was not, it turned out, the first time he had killed — far from it, authorities believe.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
