The only thing that can screw up a scenario that sweeps more Republicans into the House and into a takeover of the Senate is to hand the Democrats the usual set of issues that work against Republicans, especially inopportune remarks by candidates in forums in which they forget that their statements will end up on YouTube within the hour. 

As of now, the Democrats are trying to build their 2014 push to women voters on income inequality.   Unemployment insurance and raising the minimum wage are the two biggies.  They know tax increases are off the table, but they're getting huge revenue increases in Obamacare (and Republicans should point that out, over and over). 

But the Republicans have a huge issue looming in the need to bailout the insurance companies when sign-up numbers fail to materialize and insurance companies begin reporting big losses.  They should stake out a ground right now, to introduce legislation to stop any bailout of the insurance industry.  That will appeal across party lines and will receive support from lots of Democrats. 

Start that campaign NOW!!!

They - the GOP - should also begin a campaign to strategically compromise on the subject of unemployment compensation in order to remove it from the democrats' arsenal.  After all, if the GOP manages to control both houses of Congress after Nov. 4th, it becomes much easier to undo that compromise (not easy, just easier).

I'm predicting the Democrats....of course, together with the MSM...will grab onto the loss of unemployment benefits.

On one hand they're bragging about the 'booming economy'...which of course would justify making these people [read: victims] get off their asses finally and find work...but the visual we're going to see are people being thrown out of their homes and begging on the street corners.....thanks of course to a Republican-controlled House.

Predicting it is like bending over and picking up money.  That easy. :whistle:

They've already started grabbing onto it, which is why the republicans need to pull the teeth on that issue now, before it does serious damage and before the republicans manage to humiliate themselves (again) by giving in and acceding to democrats' version of extension after having bitterly opposed any such extension.

That's right.  Give 'em three months, then take Patty Murray up on her offer to pay for another nine months, if needed.

And do it now.  Don't allow two months of getting hammered over the issue, only to give in anyway.

It's not savvy politically, to dispense 'tough love' to the voters.

But you're 100% correct.

It's not savvy to do it at exactly the same time as you're trying to seduce them into voting for you.  Sure, the few sadomasochists in the electorate might enjoy it, but it generally turns off everyone else.

The 800 pound gorilla in the room right now is that the Media is desperately trying to manufacture some kind of win for Obama in the hopes it will distract people from what is really going on.  But too many Obama voters out there have already found out that they have been had, and millions more will after January 1st.

What really worries Dhimmies though, is how many of them have already made their Republican challenger's campaign ads for them...video tape of hundreds of Democrats repeating the lies Obama told to get elected...you can keep you doctor....you can keep your plan....Obama will save you all $2500 a year.  It was all an enormous lie, they all knew it from the beginning but they all voted to put Nancy Pelosi in charge, and it should have been no surprise that this is what she and her minions came up with.

The press cannot cover this up nor can they continue to ignore it.

The American peoples' ability to be distracted is legendary.  The democrats only need to distract enough that they can get 50% plus 1 of the votes, and that's before their inevitable electoral fraud is factored in.
