Democrats Retrench as GOP Pulls Away - WSJ.com
I think I will start a catalog of your predictions.
Not my predictions. The Democrats.
I have never seen an election where one side explicitly counts out the seats it will lose and cuts and runs. This will be a tidal wave over the Dums, who deserve all the infamy and calumny they get.
Are you sure? I would imagine that this is the normal way of running an election. It would be inanely STUPID not to. If the republicans do not do this then they need to start. Is there some proof that they do not?
They might do it internally but I have never seen it done so openly and so wholesale, with a dozen seats simply given up for dead.
The retrenching now under way happens in every election and is typically painful for the party running behind. Democrats are loath to admit that they are cutting off any of their candidates
American parties do this all the time in this situation. The pubs did the same thing in 2006 and 2008.
No, actually they didn't. Cite a source that says the RNC gave up certain seats ahead of the election.
What is unusual is they are giving up seats that they now hold.
They always fail to contest seats that are in districts where they have no incumbent.
They are being rational with their assets. Protecting what is savable.
I am pretty sure that Greyson clown is wondering where his add buy money is going to come from this year.
Kinda like in 2000. Remember how all that turned out?
