Even with the election coming up, they relish in pissing off Red State Americans.

They're not going to do anything in Texas.

The response would make the Bundy Ranch confrontation look like a bunch of kindergartners. 

Does Obama not realize that this kind of stuff is red meat for the Republican base?  How many seats does that cipher want to lose in the Senate?

Exactly what I was thinking.  They're masochists.

Hey, isn't this the guy that's going to become the next governor of Texas? What does Abortion Barbie have to say about the BLM, nevermind, that's irrelevent.

Good to see some politicans stand up to these bureaucrats.

How many Senate seats are in play in Texas?

0.

Nevada is a toss up.

Montana is a toss up.

Arizona "leans" GOP, but everybody hates McCain.

So, how do you get Democrats to the polls in those States in a midterm election?

Maybe by tying Republicans to a bunch of gun-totting "domestic terrorist" militia types ready to start a shooting war with the Federal government and demanding what amounts to an end of federal subsidies for ranchers?

Reid needs a boogeyman to counter the GOP's Obamacare boogeyman. The GOP needs to pick up six seats to gain control of the Senate. Seven seats are "toss ups" according to RCP.

"Domestic terrorists".

He doesn't need to be right, he just needs enough people to agree with him and come out to vote.

He just needs to hang on to two States to maintain control.

Nevada, Arizona, Montana.

BLM subsidized ranch country.

He just needs two.

Call it the "Western Strategy".

Just a guess?

There are a lot of people going to be getting cancellation notices from their insurance companies.  I'm betting obamacare misery beats a few ranchers with obama-love every time.  It hangs like an albatross from the necks of democrats.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

You're right, and that will work with Independents and Republicans, but what Harry needs is what incumbents lack in midterm elections: their base coming out to vote, and Harry's base votes Democrats even if there are videos of Democrats killing and eating babies in our city streets.

He doesn't need a lot of votes, he just needs some votes in some key precincts to win a State.

Political elections have become the art of micromanaging Districts in order to impact the political macrosphere.

How many times has Il Douchebag delayed implementation of Ohbummercare for political purposes so far?

I think his delaying tactics are starting to backfire though.  It's like taking a band aid off a hairy arm.  I think that's what the Dem strategists are missing and all the "settled law" comments aren't working either, if they were, he wouldn't need to repeat it.
Do you think the micro-managing is going to effective in what appears to have the potential for an electoral tsunami?  I'm not too sure but the electorate has been much too fickle to try and get a read.

The reason the electorate is hard to read is because they aren't informed, nor are they willing to examine what's before them. They get irritated, they vacillate, they bounce back and forth, but when it comes time to vote, the majority examines the situation and says: "Who will give me the most stuff."

Hard to say but we'll take every one he gives.

I'm with the governor's cause but I wish these guys would be a lot more professional and cut down on the testosterone induced bravado.

I guess they're trying to fire up the masses but still.....
November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.
