Thanks to Obamacare, the Republicans need only to be more popular the Democrats. 2104 is going to be a very, very bad year for the Dems.

People will always vote for those that give them everything at someone else's expense. It is the beginning of the downfall of america, predicted 200 years ago by a French Philosopher, and coming to fruition today.

In my book, neither parties image has improved. I would not vote for a candidate of either party.

The GOP is actively shrinking its former image of the kinder and gentler big tent. Put the squeeze play on healthcare for the elderly, poor and disabled, boost up the wealthy with continued tax cuts, remove unemployment benefits from those out of work, advocate to discontinue "food stamps" from those on the downside, advocate to bring rigid religious based "beliefs" into the political realm, give comfort to fringy single issue advocates, allow FOX, Rush, Sean and Glenn and the tparty to be the steering committee of the GOP....There is no need for a life coach and a beauty makeover for the GOP when so many image negatives are self inflicted and purposefully pursued from within.

The last, great hope of the minority party just shot himself in the foot because of his greed, ego and inferiority complex. Their new strategy of reaching out to those they've waged war on has resulted in escalating the same wars they vowed to end. Their solution is to trot out extremist candidates once again... totally ignoring the lessons of the past two elections. The minority party are the Washington Generals of politics
