Thanks to the leadership of President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid, the Democratic Party is facing the biggest defeat in midterm elections in the past 110 years, perhaps surpassing the modern record of a 74-seat gain set in 1922. They will also lose control of the Senate.And heâ€™s got lots of company. Why, some crack Republican analysts are already talking about how the party will increase its 2010 gains in the 2012 election, resulting in â€?a filibuster-proof Senate.â€?
Three problems arise with this scenario: Specifically, regarding Morris, his constant predictions rarely turn out right. (I donâ€™t know whoâ€™s a worse handicapper: Morris or the New York Timesâ€™ Tom Friedman.) Youâ€™re better off flipping a coin. Second, the Republicans and their friends (Morris is a political chameleon) have a recent history of suffering from premature celebration, and then quitting. And third, the John Doe calling himself â€?Barack Obamaâ€? has at his disposal the biggest vote fraud and vote suppression machine, this side of Zimbabwe (ACORN, SEIU, the New Black Panther Party, etc.).
Do Republicans have the grit to ferret out vote fraud, clear out the black supremacist gangsters, demand and get election officials to check â€?votersâ€™â€? ID, and not be intimidated by the now routine Democrat/MSM hoax, asserting that white men with guns suppressed the black and Hispanic vote? Because if they donâ€™t have what it takes, they can kiss their â€?historic victoryâ€™ goodbye. In that case, we will instead hear of â€?miraculousâ€? Democratic comebacks, the way we heard of â€?Obamaâ€™sâ€? amazing victories in all of the early caucuses in 2008.
I have much more faith in my ten-year-oldâ€™s ability to ensure an honest election, than I do in the professional â€?expertsâ€? in charge of the Republican Party.
