After all, Barney Frank, who is seeking his 16th term (he hasn't been really challenged in the 14) is now facing a real challenge. After all, would he have asked Bill Clinton to come campaig for him if he wasn't? Furthermore, back in April when Sarah Palin went to Boston for a Tea Party event, on a Wednesday afternnon attracted roughly 25,000 people...Mr. Obama on a Saturday, with the sitting governor of Massachusetts, couldn't bring in any more than 8500...what does that say? Here's what Steven Green, of vodkapundit fame has to say:
Four more Likely Democratic wins have been downgraded to Leans. And six more Safe seats — the bedrock wins any party counts on to stay even remotely in the game — six of those seats have moved right one spot. That’s why you see Beloved Bill Clinton campaigning for Barney Frank and Loretta Sanchez — who should both be shoe-ins. Meanwhile, Toxic Avenger Obama isn’t doing much, if anything, for congressional Democrats. Obama got his party into this fix, and not even Clinton’s still-considerable charms can get them out.
So what's important isn't that the GOP has more safe seats, but that the Democrats are losing their safe seats...this means that the ground is crumbling beneath them...because of thier utterly ignoring the will of the people last year and this year. They have pursued a vastly unpopular agenda and passed bills that the public doesn't want. 73% would like to see ObamaCare repealed...this after Mr. Obama has stated repeatedly that as the public learned what was in it...it would become more popular. Then, insurance policy cancellations have started rolling in. Now...it will only get worse and much, much more expensive.
Several months ago, I predicted the Democrats could lose 100 seats in this election...that doesn't seem so far fetched any more, does it?
