  •  Jobs which the GOP also want to obstruct (6+ / 0-)

    I think journeyman is reacting to what seems like GOP self destruction.   Running on the repeal of protections given in this law is, I don't think, a winner.   The GOP is not hitting the dems for failing to deliver jobs, they are hitting them for extending health care benefits to the sick.  

    Now the Dems will switch to jobs and financial reform, and the GOP has already committed to obstructing that, and yeah, I can see how they could lose seats or at least keep very similar margins.  

    My muffin top is all that, whole grain, low fat...

    •  The Newest PPP #'s Are Out-Do You Really (0+ / 0-)

      want to see them? Or would you rather just stick your head in the sand.

      Tough Times for Dems in the Midwest
      It's really looking like a brutal year for Democrats in the Big Ten states.

      Barack Obama's approval numbers in the two places we polled this week- Wisconsin and Ohio- tell the story. He won Wisconsin by 14 points in 2008 but we find his approval there at a net (-2) (46/48) for a 16 point drop since the election. It's a similar story in Ohio. He won there by four points in 2008 but our approval numbers there for him tomorrow will show him at (-13) (40/53) for a drop of 17 points. If his national approval rating was falling the way it is in these two states he'd be at about 43/53 for the whole country.

      If the election was today Democrats would likely lose something they currently hold in every state where they have something to lose- Pennsylvania Governor and perhaps Senate, Michigan Governor, Ohio Governor, Indiana Senate, Iowa Governor, Wisconsin Governor and perhaps Senate, and Illinois Senate and/or Governor. Only Minnesota doesn't join the party because Democrats have nothing to lose there.


      Time to wake up and smell the coffee.

        Who are they going to put up?  What are that person's numbers?

        The problem with Democrats is that they think that polls tell you where to run.  They don't.  They tell you what to hit.  When you're numbers are down, attack.  When you're numbers are up, attack.  If you're even, attack.

        DO NOT DEFEND.

        Whatever else you say about Rove, he at least got that.  Ultimately he lost, but that was because he was working for the worst president in history.  We are not so handicapped.

        If we come out swinging, this thing is as good as done and WE WILL WIN.

        •  Hell, we're mounting an attack on John Kline. (1+ / 0-)

          Or "TX-33" if you read the vote record.

          His margins don't matter. He's sell-out horse shit and worth attacking.
