Listening to the former Chairman of the GOP on the Rev's MSNBC Politics Nation program

He says the Republicans will take the Senate and keep the majority of the Governors. I think the strategy is to convince people that the Republicans are to win big therefore it will be a waste of time and effort to get out and vote. There is no way unless people are brain dead that the GOP will win big in 2014.

2. Unfortunately

Dems are far less proficient at organizing and propagandizing than are repugs, so people don't have to be brain dead. But many are, that is, U.S. education is so degraded, things just move right along for repugs.

If we do then we should keep the Senate barely. The house is to gerrymandered. I can not watch Al, Can not stand his screaming at me.

5. I'm not expecting

things to change much in the House or Senate. D turnout will probably be higher next year than 2010 and may even surpass R turnout. Maybe we'll dethrone a few R governors. But I doubt turnout will be high enough (in the correct Congressional districts) to overcome gerrymandering. This is not to imply that Democrats shouldn't bother voting--everyone should still work their asses off, but don't be surprised if after Election Day 2014, the Status Quo remains.
This goes back to the point I made about 2010 actually being Obama's worst year instead of 2013. Many people on our side starting becoming less engaged, less patient, more cynical, and apparently forgot the importance of having a strong majority in both Houses of Congress in addition to controlling the executive branch. Ever since then, he hasn't been able to get nearly as much done as from 2008 to 2010, and there are now very few competitive districts to be able to get rid of the RWNJs. Adding salt to the wound, the GOP also won big in governorships. That has been how they've been able to push their voter ID laws and block health care in various states.

6. It would be the dream of the GOP for Democrats to stay at home and not vote. The outcome

Of the 2014 election lies at the hands of Democrats. The GOP know they can not beat the Democrats or they would not be trying to change the voter laws. Get your families registered to vote, get them excited to vote out the crazy RW, there are more of us than them, let's beat them.
