Matthews: GOP could pick up 10 Senate seats

MSNBC host Chris Matthews said on Sunday that Democrats could lose ten Senate seats in the midterm elections.

“To the Democrats, this election, a rosy scenario is to lose five Senate seats, not six,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“They could lose 10. And so what they’ve said is, ‘If we’re going to lose 10 seats potentially,’ and they could well do that, a big sweep, they’re going to the battle stations.”
“Nothing on Social Security. All-out talk about minimum wage. Nothing on trade. … Nothing’s going to get done, because both parties have gone to their base,” Matthews added.

David Brooks, a columnist for The New York Times, said earlier on the program that while immigration reform, a fast-track trade deal and chained CPI would help the economy, their future is bleak.

“So these are all gigantic, very good policies, where there is majority support and where, in the old days in Washington, you’d cobble together a bipartisan coalition and get rid of the fringes,” Brooks said. “But right now, the fringes have veto power over everything else, and nobody’s found a solution to that.”

    If we take the 10 seats with conservative (not RINOs) we can get our country back. Even if the RINOs win the seats Harry Reid will have to step down. That in itself will be a 100% victory.

    “Nothing gets done” because “Dingy” Harry Reid is still in office. If bills don’t get passed it will because BO has veto’ed them, and will then have to justify that. BO will not like a Republican House and Senate. The paradox here is a Republican (Newt Gingrich) was the best thing that happended to Slick Willie Clinton. Some good work was accomplished when he had to compromise. It’s so very doubtful that BO will see that as an opportunity. He doesn’t know how to compromise in his personal or private life. His wife tells him what do do at home, and he has NO experience in compromise as a community organizer (notice I left out his other time in elected office and as a, so called, lawyer).
