One Week To Go For Midterm Elections – Voters Angry Says New Poll

The 2014 midterm elections are just one week away now. A new CNN-ORC poll shows that 69% of voters are angry about the direction the country is headed. In the Midwest, South and even the West, Barack Obama faces job disapproval numbers above 50%. This could have a great bearing on the outcome of US Senate races in key states like Iowa, Colorado and Georgia. Over at Real Clear Politics, Republican candidates are leading in six of the top ten Senate races. Democrats only have the lead in three, though in Kansas it is a Democrat masquerading as an Independent, and in Georgia, the race is considered a tie. RCP is still predicting that the GOP will pick up 7 Senate seats, giving them a majority with 52.

Two Weeks To Go – Obama Campaigning Toxic To Dems

With just two weeks to go before the 2014 midterm elections, Barack Obama campaigning has become toxic to Democrats, especially for those in tight races for the U.S. Senate. On Sunday, Obama appeared in Maryland, a ′Blue State′, to campaign for gubernatorial candidate, Lt. Governor Anthony Brown. Not long after Obama began speaking, crowds of people walked out while others heckled him. Several weeks ago, Obama stated that the midterms were all about his policies, much to the chagrin of Democrats, including his buddy, David Axelrod. Yesterday, Obama remarked that he doesn′t mind that many candidates are giving him the cold shoulder because he knows they support him anyway. Oops! Nearly every major poll shows Democrats will lose control of the Senate. Real Clear Politics now has increased the number of GOP seats they are expected to win from 52 to 53. What may be worse is that a new poll by Politico shows that 64% think the country is ′out of control′.

4 Weeks Till Midterms, Gallup Poll – Obama, Dems in Trouble

With just four weeks to go until the 2014 midterm elections, a new Gallup Poll shows that Barack Obama is in worse political shape than either George W. Bush or Bill Clinton were during their final two years. Some 32% of those polled say they are voting to send a message of opposition to Obama and the Democrats, while only 20% will vote to support them. In comparison, during the 2010 midterms, the numbers were similar, with 30% voting to send a message against Obama and 22% in support. In 2006, the numbers for Bush-43 were 31% opposing and 18% supporting, whereas in 2002, the numbers were only 15% opposing and 28% supporting Bush. In 1998, Clinton only had 19% opposing and 24% supporting. Even David Axelrod was dumbfounded when Obama said in a speech last week that the November midterms were about his agenda and policies.

Republican Midterm Edge for Senate

The latest polling data in key battleground states shows a Republican midterm edge for winning control of the U.S. Senate. In Arkansas, Democrat incumbent Mark Pryor is slightly behind his challenger, Rep. Tom Cotton. In Alaska, incumbent Democrat Mark Begich was doing well until he ran an inflammatory ad against Dan Sullivan which caused such an outrage that the Begich campaign had to withdraw it. In other states with incumbent Democrat senators, like West Virginia and South Dakota, the GOP has a distinct lead in those races. North Carolina may turn out to be a nail-biter, as well as states like Michigan where the Democrats thought they would have a certain victory. Currently, based on polling numbers, the GOP looks to win at least 51 senate seats and possibly 53 to 55. Between 5 to 6 states are so close that results may not be able to call a winner on election night.

SCOTUS to POTUS – You Went Too Far, Obama!

Hocus, Pocus, Scotus, Potus! In a 9 to 0 unanimous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Barack Obama exceeded his Constitutional authority when making recess appointments to the National Labor Review Board. The ruling specified that only the Congress, in this case the United States Senate, can determine when it is in recess. Even the nation′s high court Liberals, said that Obama overstepped his power as president in making the NLRB appointments. A second ruling on matter, brought about by the case of the NLRB v. Noel Canning, concerning a labor dispute between a soft drink bottler and the Teamsters union, ruled 5-4 in a broad interpretation of recess appointments, though still narrower than that used by the White House. The minority opinion in this second ruling, led by Justice Anthony Scalia, said that even appointments during short recesses, such as only 3 days, should be prohibited.

Senate Approves Debt Ceiling, Clean Bill or Clean Kill?

The U.S. Senate approves the debt ceiling bill, passing the increase 55 to 43. This followed an earlier vote to prevent a filibuster, passing 67 to 31. The House passed its ′clean bill′ on Tuesday with Speaker John Boehner and 27 other Republicans joining all but 2 Democrats against 199 GOP Congressmen who tried to stop it. Unlike previous debt ceiling bills, this one, like that from last Fall, did not put any cash limit on how much money the federal government may borrow. Instead, yesterday′s bill allows the government to borrow as much as they want until March, 2015. Needless to say, Barack Obama and his White House goons are very happy. Not so happy is Senate Republican Ted Cruz, a Tea Party favorite, who at least wanted an amendment to build the Keystone XL pipeline added. Mitch McConnell and Bob Corker were among several GOP Senators who changed their votes to block a filibuster.

New Report from Senate: Benghazi Attacks Preventable

A new, bipartisan report from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee claims that the 2012 Benghazi attacks on our consulate was preventable. The other two major findings of the report are that at least four Al Qaeda affiliated groups were involved in the attack and that the Obama administration has yet to bring any of the terrorists to justice. Perhaps equally important is, yet again, we are given a time-line which proves that the White House, Barack Obama and his incompetent officials, namely Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice, all lied to the American people about the attack being blamed on some stupid You-Tube video. Meanwhile, Fox News reporter, James Rosen, who was being spied upon by the Justice Department, has revealed new, declassified documents from the House closed-door hearings on Benghazi. The gist of which is that the White House statement from September 10, 2012 about precautions for the 11th anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks was a lie. Few, if any, military forces were deployed to respond to any attacks.

What the “Nuclear Option” means for you

I will avoid wasting your time with “Duck and Cover” or the assorted doomsday preparations here, as I go over the assorted (or sordid) details of the latest Democrat strategy of invoking the “nuclear option” in the Senate.

Last week, fresh off the heels of the latest Republican capitulation to Democrats, Harry Reid decided to casually adopt this strategy to end filibusters over certain legislation and judicial nominations. Our current Senate Minority Idiot, Mitch McConnell, responded by saying… “It’s sad!” Read the rest of this entry »
