Matthews: GOP could pick up 10 Senate seats

By Kyle Balluck

MSNBC host Chris Matthews said on Sunday that Democrats could lose ten Senate seats in the midterm elections.

“To the Democrats, this election, a rosy scenario is to lose five Senate seats, not six,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“They could lose 10. And so what they've said is, ‘If we're going to lose 10 seats potentially,’ and they could well do that, a big sweep, they're going to the battle stations.”

“Nothing on Social Security. All-out talk about minimum wage. Nothing on trade. … Nothing's going to get done, because both parties have gone to their base,” Matthews added.

David Brooks, a columnist for The New York Times, said earlier on the program that while immigration reform, a fast-track trade deal and chained CPI would help the economy, their future is bleak.

“So these are all gigantic, very good policies, where there is majority support and where, in the old days in Washington, you'd cobble together a bipartisan coalition and get rid of the fringes,” Brooks said. “But right now, the fringes have veto power over everything else, and nobody's found a solution to that.”

Republicans last month believed they had widened the map to nearly a dozen competitive contests when former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie announced he would run in Virginia against Sen. Mark Warner (D), a state previously thought to be off the table.

While Republicans were feeling increasingly optimistic, they stopped short of bold public predictions, remembering the dashed expectations of recent election cycles in which Tea Party candidates torpedoed their chances.

If the Dhimmies lose ten seats in the Senate it will be devastating for the Democrat Party and the worst possible news for Obama.  Harry Reid and his nuclear option will guarantee Obama's agenda will come to a screeching halt, and the sooner the better.

Why does the phrase "rope-a-dope" come to mind?

Yep, believe it when I see it.  I think this is going to be the "cheatin'ist" election yet.

So....it's good news/bad news.....

Good News....we effectively politically castrate Barack Obama

Bad News....he will become insane in his incessant blaming of Republicans for the gridlock running up to 2016.  And the media will go "all in" to assist him.

The media is already "all in" for Bambi so that part is a wash, or a given, however you want to look at it.

Agreed. The media couldn't be more supportive of Obama.
