In the 2014 midterm elections a lot of Democrats will be in for a shock when, for the first time in their miserable lives, they will have to get a real job. They are running scared right now and they have a reason to. They thought that the government shutdown would help them and when it first happened that appeared to be the case.
Terry McAuliffe won the election for Governor of Virginia but he barely eked it out. When the month of October started he had about a 12 point lead over his Republican opponent. McAuliffe raised 15 million dollars more and outspent his opponent about 2:1.
Then the partial government shutdown ended and the media focused on Obamacare and the disaster it has been. The failure is there each time something is tried and it is obvious that Democrats lied to America by supporting Obama and his you can keep it if you like it mantra.
Ken Cuccinelli had the deck stacked against him. He did not have the money and the left spent a lot lying about him. To top it off the Democrats paid for a person to pretend to be a Libertarian (his entry into the race and his backing paid for by an Obama bundler) to siphon votes. The votes the pseudo libertarian got would have propelled Cuccinelli to victory.
Be that as it may, the reality has set in. Obamacare wiped out a 12 point lead that McAuliffe had. Exit polls show that a lot of people are not happy with the whole mess that is Obamacare.
Cuccinelli had no support from establishment Republicans and the establishment’s new darling, Chris Christie Kreme refused to even campaign for him.
With all that going against him Cuccinelli almost won because of Obamacare.
Democrats can crow about a win in Virginia but when they are in their quiet places out of the public’s sight they are worried. They know that they are vulnerable because of Obamacare. All of them are on the record voting for the law and the very items they were warned would cause millions to lose their coverage thus giving us the lie of keeping it if you like it.
They cannot hide from their votes and they cannot defend what they did.
There are a number of Democrat Senators who are in trouble and any Democrat House Member in a red state (or specifically a red district) is worried because support of Obamacare will come back to hurt them.
Unless of course, Democrats find more phony third party candidates to help them along the way.
Never surrender, never submit.
