This year the Democrats are in grave danger of losing control of the Senate. President Obama's growing unpopularity, combined with Harry Reid's crazy rants and huge lack of action on bills that have come from the House, is causing voters to consider a change from Democrat leadership in the Senate.
Things on the Democrat campaign trail are interesting this year, to say the least. President Obama has been largely uninvited to campaign for individual candidates. Democrats don't want to be associated with him or his policies - particularly the policies that are not doing well. Obamacare is suddenly not popular among Democrats. Obama's refusal to initiate a travel ban from Ebola infected countries hasn't gone over well either. Democrats are denouncing both or, at least, playing them down so as not to be associated with either.
But that's not the worst thing going on. The worst thing is the blatant use of the race card by Democrat campaigns - while they're calling Republicans racists.
In North Carolina last week some people came out of a church service and found this on their windshields:
If you can't see it - the background picture is of the lynching of a black man by a large group of whites. The flyer indicates that if Democrat Kay Hagan doesn't win in November then President Obama will be
lynched impeached. I don't know if Kay Hagan approved her message but if not she needs to reign in some of her PAC staff.
In Georgia, the Democrat Party is sending the following flyer out to black voters, trying to get a larger turnout, playing on racial fear and tension.
So... if black voters turn out and vote in Georgia it's going to change the ethnic makeup of Ferguson, Missouri? Does the Georgia Democrat Party believe the black voters in Georgia are stupid enough to believe that or are they simply trying to stir things up? Hmmmm
Not to be outdone - "Reverend" Al Sharpton has begun his own campaign to get out the black vote. It is also based on the Michael Brown incident (which reports are now indicating happened the way Officer Wilson it did). Sharpton's National Action Network has launched the "Hands Up Vote" which is a call back to the Ferguson case in which "Hands Up - Don't Shoot" has become the mantra of the protesters.
The left is using blatant racism to get black people to vote Democrat. It's quite shameful but certainly not surprising. They did the same thing in 2012. During a campaign speech in Danville, Virginia, whose ethnic make up is 49% black, in August of 2012, Vice President Joe Biden said "They're going to put y'all back in chains!"
Biden's aides and White House spokespeople downplayed it saying he was referring to Wall Street however, the racist overtone did not go unnoticed. It's what Democrats do to get elected.
When Barack Obama was running for President, and even after he was elected a second time, anyone who opposed his policies was immediately branded a racist, regardless of the stated reason(s) for that opposition. Even the President himself has made statements about people who disagree with him doing so only because of his skin color.
I always find it laughable how the Democrat Party, the founders of the Ku Klux Klan, now goes around calling Republicans racist. Democrats are responsible for the massive numbers of minorities being on government assistance. Democrats are responsible for the high unemployment numbers in the black community. Democrats are responsible for the complete failure that is Detroit. And the Republicans are the racists?
Don't worry though. That could all change in 2016. If Hillary Clinton becomes the Democrat nominee for President, on the very day it is announced, all of us racist Republicans will instantly become sexists.
