    Happy New Year.. it's possible

    1) Even Democrats will turn on Obama due to fear of the coming election.

    2) Americans will decide they want the adults running the country again.

    3) The realities of Obamacare failure will hit both Republicans and Democrats.

    Concerning 3)

    The reality hit Republicans way before Obamacare was passed, it will be Democrats who get a cold hard dose of reality when the law goes fully under.

    I said it that way because I figured Democrats think it only affects people that don't matter, in other words, not them.

    No need to appease the sensitivities of Democrats, let them think that way if they want to, it will make the reality more cruel.

    It is sad that so many Americans have to suffer to prove a reality. The only thing standing in the way now are the ego's of the Democratic Party and their faithful travelers.

    Political Predictions for 2014

    1. Boehner has acted correctly, forcing the party to deal with matters as adults.

    2. The passing of the budget and the real possibility of a comprehensive immigration bill next spring, since Boehner has demonstrated to the far right and they have finally realized he will pass bills without their support, means not only a solid retention of GOP in the House but a real chance to take the Senate.

    3. ACA will be a counter beat in the GOP election chorus certainly, but hopefully it will be only part of the outreach to women and minorities.

    Democrats poison the waters when it comes to minorities, women and the older set. Who knows, maybe Americans will come to their senses and realize their being played by Democrat divisive politics.

    None of us can predict the future but I can tell you this....

    If the elections were held today, it would be a rout

    We'd win another 30 seats in the House and take 15 in the Senate.

    10-1/2 Months is a LONG time people. A VERY long time.

    And lettuce not forget the incredible luck that befell dimocraps in 2008 and 2012.

    We saw what happens when Conservatives are united and stand together -- In 2010.

    Then obama and his Army of Nazi thugs got the IRS shutting down and throttling Tea Party groups, he got lucky with Hurricane Sandy and he got to fatass Candy Crowley in the 2nd debate....

    Luck counts. And dimocraps have been lucky two out of three times.

    We take the Senate and retain the House, and dimocraps fall apart.

    We take the White House in 2016..... IF we run somebody with a pair of balls. :mad:

    Maybe we should look for a woman?

    The idea is to spout off predictions only to be insulted later.. it's part of the holiday festivities at the USMB.

    Well, I always have to dampen my predictions with a dose of reality. How can we win when faced with this kind advertising genius?
