    wants the democrats to fail and lose even more seats in the house.  if he did, he would be hard pressed to come up with a more effective plan of action than his current one.

    •  Democrats thinking wistfully of the house (5+ / 0-)

      Do Democrats have a clue of the damage they will do if they pass cuts to social security, when already facing the below?

      Democrats thinking wistfully about taking back the House of Representatives, holding the Senate, ending gridlock and driving a new surge of progressive reform.....

      Well, sober up.

      The 2014 midterm election is more likely to be a debacle for Democrats than Republicans.

      It will take a true political miracle for Democrats to take back the House.

      Republicans need to win a net of six Senate seats to take the Senate – with six Democratic seats up in red states, and seven in swing states.

      Four sitting Democratic Senators are retiring compared to only two Republicans, both from safe red states.
