Wouldn't you just love to see their internal polling numbers?

They know what's coming for sure!

I hate to rain on anyone's parade, but the cheating mechanisms are already in place - the Dems are NOT going to lose in 2014.  It is too crucial to them.  Just like 2012.

Those mechanisms can only work in close races Alice and I don't think this is going to be close!

I hope you're right Bigun, my cynicism is running high anymore.

Me too. A lying, government never held accountable. A media that would do or say anything to protect that government. And a public that can't be bothered.

The public is convinced that Republicans are for the corporations only. That the Tea Party is hyper extreme. That Democrats care, love the people and take care of the little guy.

Next year is a lifetime away, politically. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Democrats win, in spite of all that is going on.

If that happens the country we have always know as the USA will have faded into history! There will be something called the USA remaining but it won't be anything like what we grew up knowing.

At which point it may lead to a result none of us are prepared for.

If they get immigration...another 11+ million democrat votes. 2014 won't be close then.

Which begs the question. Karl Rove's American Crossroads has applied $100,000 to the push for amnesty yet didn't give one red cent to Cuchinelli in Virginia for Governor and he support Muslim Grover Norquist...  I think Rove is as much the problem as Obama - given his actions - it is all about money and power.

It's all about preserving the inside the beltway Washington status quo at all costs!

The problem is that in some of the more critical states, such as Virginia, Florida, Colorado, the demographics have shifted to where it's all-but-impossible NOT to have "a close race".

Who thought Virginia would vote for Obama? Not once, but twice.
Who thought Florida would vote for Obama? Not once, but twice.
Who thought Colorado would vote for Obama? Not once, but twice.

Although I previously discounted that democratic cheating had made that much of a difference in these contests, I'm beginning to wonder: just how deeply is their "cheating machine" entrenched?

And with all the newfangled rules about voting (motor voter, same day registration, electronic voting machines that produce questionable results, etc.) I'm losing confidence that "the system" -- the mechanical process of voting -- can retain the integrity with which it held its credibility for more than two centuries (at least in most places other than Chicago, heh).

I wish I could believe all the happy-talk about how the Pubbies are sittin' pretty for 2014. But I'm a cynical realist.

I'll believe it when I see it.
