Senate Control in 2014 Increasingly Looks Like a Tossup

By NATE SILVER

This weekend’s announcement by the former governor of Montana, Brian Schweitzer, that he would not seek that state’s Democratic nomination for Senate represents the latest in a series of favorable developments for Republicans as they seek control of the chamber.

The G.O.P.’s task will not be easy: the party holds 46 seats in the Senate, and the number will very probably be cut to 45 after a special election in New Jersey later this year. That means that they would need to win a net of six contests from Democrats in order to control 51 seats and overcome Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s tiebreaking vote. Two years ago at this time, Republicans faced what seemed to be a promising environment and could have won the Senate by gaining a net of three seats from Democrats and winning the presidency. Instead, Mitt Romney lost to President Obama, and the G.O.P. lost a net of two Senate seats.

But Montana along with West Virginia and South Dakota — two other red states where an incumbent Democrat has retired and where the Democrats have not identified a strong candidate to replace them – gives Republicans a running start. Republicans could then win three more seats from among red states like Louisiana and Arkansas, where vulnerable Democratic incumbents are on the ballot, or they could take aim at two purple states, Iowa and Michigan, where Democrats have retired. More opportunities could also come into play if the national environment becomes more favorable to Republicans (such as because of a further slide in Mr. Obama’s approval ratings). Meanwhile, while Kentucky and Georgia are possibly vulnerable, Republicans have few seats of their own to defend; unlike in 2012, they can focus almost entirely on playing offense.

A race-by-race analysis of the Senate, in fact, suggests that Republicans might now be close to even-money to win control of the chamber after next year’s elections. Our best guess, after assigning probabilities of the likelihood of a G.O.P. pickup in each state, is that Republicans will end up with somewhere between 50 and 51 Senate seats after 2014, putting them right on the threshold of a majority.

How many blows to your head would you have endured if someone was holding you down? And at what point would you find any way to defend yourself?
The evidence is right in front of you.
This is a political ploy to distract our attention from this administration's numerous scandals - the last being targeting Obama's political enemies using the IRS and the NSA.
What better way to keep our minds off of this administration's abuse of power?
The liberal media may have done their job by making this case something it never was, but they are going to pay dearly for it when they find themselves in a mega bucks lawsuit.
Was it worth it?

The Truth about GD's and Chicago

Quote:
A fierce advocate and member of Chicago's Growth & Development sets the record straight on issues involving GD's, Chairman Larry Hoover, Co- Chairman Gregory "Shorty G" Shell, the federal case/frame up involving "the guys", the politics behind it, and the resulting conditions in Chicago following their convictions.
That's all nice and good that this guy can explain the violence in Chicago. But it would have been nice and good if Barack Obama and Eric Holder had expressed their concern over black on black crime and the number of deaths that occurred in their own backyard by other blacks before becoming so concerned about this one case about a Hispanic defending himself in an attack.

I have never been a person who voted along party lines. I did not vote for Obama. It was really the ugly hatefulness and obstructionist attitude of the Republican party. which began on the day of Obama's inauguration, that made me align myself with Obama and the left but I still keep an open mind.
Conservative Republicans resisted a radical liberal who had shady connections, a mysterious past and promised to redistribute the wealth, raise taxes and fundamentally transform this nation long before his inauguration.

Demanding accountability after the bottom fell out was the most patriotic thing an American could do.

The hatefulness and obstructionism began after Obama's inauguration by liberals - not concerned citizens - who demonized anyone who dared criticize their beloved and perceived deliverer of a nanny state.

But glad you keep an open mind. Hope it's letting some light in.

So assume you are a registered gun owner and have your weapon on you when someone ambushes you, breaks your nose, holds you down and starts slamming your head on the sidewalk. How many times would you allow them to slam your head on the concrete before thinking your life might be in danger?

Two, three, four? It doesn't take much force to the head to cause brain damage or death.

Was Trayvon just going to bash his head until he was unconscious? Or until he was dead? Would you have waited to find out?

LAPD announced earlier today that they would keep a low profile at demonstrations and now the white and Hispanic citizens of Los Angeles are paying the price. When the police do nothing, one needs to protect oneself by any means necessary.

The war in Iraq once divided us. But never have we been this divided because of our differences in ideology deliberately driven by those in power.

Ever wonder why?

Is this the America you really want?

We needed a wake up call after the bottom fell out. And we woke up. This president used the crisis to promote his personal vision for this nation while we were wide awake.

Unfortunately, his vision was only to further his own party's best interest and not the best interest of all Americans.

But that's it for me tonight.

Incorrect.

The looters (not protestors) are still being allowed to roam at will.

But suspect the cops will act soon.

FACT: On January 20, 2009 Republican Leaders in Congress plotted to sabotage the Obama administration.

At the meeting, Rep Kevin McCarthy said, "We've gotta challenge them on every single bill.....Show united and unyielding opposition to the president’s economic policies."

Go buy a copy of Robert Draper's book, "Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives."
