    southbeach1500 saidReally? But I just read a topic here that Obamacare has "risen from the ashes" and that it has "widespread popularity" and has been a "good thing for the American people."

    Hmmmm... Something isn't adding up!

    LOL

    "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period."

    Politifact lie of the year and the recipient of four Pinocchios from the Washington Post.

    Rising from the ashes? What a laugh!

    People really hate being lied to and the Democrats will pay a big price. Obama is on his way to going down in history as being the worst president of all time.

    This from 2 of the guys who absolutely assured us here that Romney would trounce Obama in 2012. The tactic is called "demoralizing your opponents".

    But despite the discredited & biased source (Fox News? Really? Is that the best you can do?), it's also true that the Party in the White House usually loses some ground in Congress at the mid-term elections.

    That's a well-established pattern that requires no political prophet to predict. What is different in 2014 is that the contested Senate seats (only 1/3 come up for reelection every 2 years, versus the entire House) are mostly in Red Republican States. 2016 will be a stronger year for Democrats, for the Presidential cycle.

    So that 2014 may indeed be a difficult election year for Congressional Democrats. It also doesn't help that Republicans at State level have done a very good job at voter redistricting, and at voter suppression of likely Democratic voters. So that we may continue to see a pattern where the number of Republicans elected to all offices is disproportionately favorable compared to the overall voter split between Republicans and Democrats.

    "absolutely assured"

    "Romney would trounce Obama"

    In addition to YN2K, I think even I taught you how to accurately and thoroughly search all prior posts with something named Google Advanced Search. Takes only seconds. Hell, you even know the date range so that should make it easier. So get to work.

    Art_Deco,

    I did no such thing. Fortunately, you have the ability to search all posts here. Please provide evidence to back up your assertion.

    I will save you the trouble. There isn't any because I never claimed such a thing.

    In the spirit of civility, I'll leave it as you just made a mistake and have me confused with somebody else.



    Only a really really good happy hour could cause that!

    Absolutely false. I never assured anyone that Romney would win. You like to make shit up, don't you? And you don't like FOXNews reporting? Well too bad. Has Axelrod complained that he was misquoted? No.

    Demonizing your opponents? Democrats have done a very good job themselves having deceived the American people on what Obamacare would really bring. They'll have to stew in their own juices.
