Unless the democrats can deceive the public again and make obamacare popular by 2016, I don't know how can you spin this but you are trying here with the left talking points....lol
Both the Republican and Democratic candidates will have to present positions on what to do with Obamacare. With Obama in 2012, the Republicans could run on Keep it vs. Repeal it. With another Democrat, that's not going to fly. I just don't see the issue as an automatic win for Republicans.

The GOP has the house, senate and the majority of the governorships.....I say they must be doing something better than the democrat party....
Bob doesn't care for statistical trends that don't favor Democrats. He only belches out the ones he thinks make Democrats look good.

The diverse aren't self-deporting, either.
Good thing the GOP won the Asian vote in 2014.

wisely? W couldn't pass amnesty and neither Obama. Maybe latinos should start voting in the midterms elections better or maybe they haven't figured out that its congress that handles immigration laws not the WH.

Shows you the nation is against amnesty, that's why the GOP controls the house and senate.

A pathway which the republicans have consistently supported, even though you will not let that penetrate your bias.

Just keep ignoring facts that don't agree with your false talking points.

Then care to explain the recent elections and losses by your employer or even the polls taken nation wide that do not favor (to say the least) your democratic party? Or even the in fighting of the dems?

If the numbers tell the story you are in real trouble.

Stupidity alert. 51 states? Last I heard there were 50, unless you listen to Obama and then there are 57.

This certainly puts all of your alleged statistics in question since you can't seem to even repeat them correctly.

Bob is a bias democrat who obviously is for amnesty and abortion on demand with no restrictions using tax payers money......lol


The fact is no party has won the WH 3 times in a row for nearly 30 years and the last party that did that was the GOP under Reagan and he had very high approval ratings something Obama doesn't have. The fact is whoever runs for the democrats in 2016 will stay away from Obama just like the democrats did for the mid-terms elections in 2014 which is a negative for the democrats to keep the WH.


Both parties have split 2-2 the last 4 Presidential Elections. The GOP has the house, senate and the majority of the governorships.


I say the GOP must be doing something right with their NO amnesty and PRO LIFE platform.......something Bob will never admit here.

I don't either.

The genie is out of the bottle and the problems faced by Americans re: affordable, quality, accessible health care are now front and center. If the Republicans want to address Obamacare head on they're going to have to present an alternate plan to the American people that really works. Do they have a comprehensive plan to overhaul? Is it a good plan? Is it cost effective? Is it simple enough (as in not a mountain-high manual of rules and regulations) that Americans can understand and believe in it? Will it be presented truthfully to us? Can we afford it? Will it increase the national debt? How would it be implemented so that the entire system (1/6th of the economy) is not (again) thrown into upheaval? Is it good for Americans or is it good for insurance companies? A ton of other questions people smarter than me could come up with.

I have my doubts that the Republicans can get their act together enough to come up with a good plan and then message it in a persuasive way.. I would like to be proven wrong.
