    House really safe in 2014?

    House really safe in 2014?

    Guy Cecil is the Democratic strategist who was the hero of the 2012 Senate strategy which resulted in Democrats not only holding the Senate, but picking up two seats.  He will return in 2014.

    Cecil, it’s worth noting, points out what people like Kathleen Parker refuse to admit, that Republicans’ failure was as much if not more a failure of establishment Republican candidates:

    “We intend to hold the Senate [in 2014],” Cecil said. “No one thought we could hold it  last cycle. Not only did we hold it, we picked up seats. And it wasn’t just  because we had the Mourdocks. Nobody was saying Tommy Thompson was extreme, or  Dennis Rehberg was extreme. We won because we recruited candidates that best fit  their state.”

    So when Cecil says the Democrats will not take back the House, it has credibility:

    But I would take absolutely nothing for granted.

    By 2014, Politico and others will have stopped complaining that they are puppets manipulated by Obama, and will resume full-blown puppetry.

      Hold on there about Carson. Remember how we conservatives jumped at having Powel as our candidate? Or Rice? Just because a black says something Conservative doesn’t mean they’ll work out for us (Powel as an example).

      Let things work out in the next 2 years before we jump.

    Maybe the best course of action is for “good” Republicans to resign from the party and join the democrats as “inside” influence.

    The Republican party has shown me not much of anything in the past couple of years…

    The way things are going, it’ll be a miracle if we hold House.

    It’d almost be worth losing it to to finally end the disaster of Boehner being House Squeaker. Almost.

    “So when Cecil says the Democrats will not take back the House, it has credibility:”

    Does it? Or is this Cecil’s opening strategic move for 2014 – to lull the GOP into complacency?

    If the next vote is as crooked as the last, the GOP will not hold the majority after the next election.

    I have no idea how Republicans win any position anywhere. Zero presence, and easily ridiculed positions.
