Election 2014: DEM Pundits Deliver For The GOP While Exposing DEM Political Weakness

The Washington Post, The Fix, published a piece this afternoon that literally foretells doom for the Democrats in the November mid-term elections. The piece is a quick read with charts full of historic data that would drive most analysts and readers to the voting booths to cast the GOP vote.

Yes, articles such as the "Don't count on it", pieces is sure-fired vote GOP.

After the pure gloom from, The Fix, let's take a look and listen to progressive media (Hardball Chris Matthews), progressive pundits and their version of election doom. They posit, they reminiscence, they chatter and they appear to sheepishly "hope." Problem is they are immersed in the very dialogue the Right has worked very hard to develop and promulgate.  

As they traipse through the segment with an under-current of "DEMS running from Obama", one has to remember, these are paid mouthpieces (from the Left) who appear to have fallen into the GOP election trap. A trap that has enticing inducement comparable to a jar of honey. The Left leaning talking heads have slipped into the mindset of GOP sweeps in November. They know.....
I. Know midterm elections do not draw large turnout. Advantage GOP. 
II. President Obama has successfully implemented a national health insurance reform law that is paying dividends for millions, but falls shy of benefiting many middle to high income earners: people who vote in mid-term elections. Advantage GOP. 
III. The nation leans Right despite irrefutable prologue of GOP economic malfeasance and incompetence while Obama and his team literally save the nation from economic disaster beyond comprehension. 
IV. They also know which election races will drive the Democrats to the full extent of their wherewithal to secure a win. 

Matthews asked a salient question. Where is the chest-thumping from an Administration that has enough "thump" material to at least fire-off a few heavy hands? Hell, one of Matthews guests thoroughly threw a cold shower on the Administration's September Jobs Report.

As I moved away from the segment, thoughts of lax Democratic politicking and candidate running form President Obama shot through my mind like a bolt of lightening. I recall Al Gore distancing himself from the under siege Bill Clinton. Had Clinton helped to carry one state we may not have suffered through years of Bush political incompetence.

Thoughts of a US economy handed back to a political party replete with salivating oligarchs and a reinfection of full-blown Reaganomics. 

In July 2003, Mehrun Etebari for United for a Fair Economy published a screed with inarguable data and comment about the fallacy of supply-side economics. 


Excerpted charts (below) must be accompanied by Etebari's per "reason" comment.

1. Cutting the top tax rate does not lead to economic growth.
Top Tax Rate vs Real GDP Growth Rate

2. Cutting the top tax rate does not lead to income growth.

3. Cutting the top tax rate does not lead to wage growth.

4. Cutting the top tax rate does not lead to job creation.

Weeks before the 212 General Election, I published  a piece regarding Mitt Romney's serial lying, GOP governance and DEM VS GOP handling of the US economy. The piece included a chart that shows the callousness and lack of US voter acumen via voting the GOP into political offices that directly impact of national economic well being.
Yes, the US voter is easily manipulated, and equally deficient in long-term memory. My contempt for the prospect of the GOP taking over the Senate and progressive punditry that has seems to follow a lackadaisical DNC, RCCC and other Democrat election authorities boils over.

Any party that would augment its election voter suppression subterfuge with ads like the following ad spot, should never have an easy trek to federal government dominance.
