    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?

    2. I assume you are referring to republicans...so they will make sure the idiots who want to leave the poor in the cold get elected...sigh...I hope not. It will happen I am sure because of the backlash against obamacare and democrats in general for voting for it lets just hope we can get some moderate republicans and not these tea party tards in office.Do nothing but tie up shit.

    As we approach the debt ceiling in February, the GOP will lowball its demands that must be met for them to approve raising the ceiling. This is because they want to keep the American people focused on the shortcomings of ObamaCare and not on the GOP being a bunch of assholes who shut down the government.

    In 2014, ObamaCare will be far more successful at getting people insurance than the GOP is hoping it will.

    Beyond that, everything else is smoke. There are an infinite number of unforeseen events which can happen between now and next November which will tilt the field this way and that.

    But you can be sure if an extinction event asteroid were discovered to be heading toward Earth, the right wing will find a way to blame it on Obama golfing too much.

    The percentages say "no", so we have to work on the outreach.

    You know, you Democrats have beat that pony to death. Accept 66.6% (the Presidency & Senate) of the blame and move on.
