Will President Obama pay the price in the 2014 election?

By Roger Caldwell

      The 2014 election is the last election that President Obama will have to take the blame for everything that has gone wrong with America. Americans operates from the philosophy of what have you done for me lately, and it does not matter what you did for me yesterday. The president’s poll numbers are the lowest since he has been in office, and the Republicans and conservatives think everyone in the country believe he is doing a terrible job.

Even though, the unemployment number is under 6 percent, the first time in 6 years, and it marked the 48th straight month of job growth, the Republicans are still mad. The stock market is enjoying one of the best markets in years, and breaking all kinds of records, but the president is not given any credit. The ACA is working and 10 million Americans now have health insurance, but the media is barely talking about the president’s achievements.

When the president was elected in 2008, almost every industry was close to being bankrupted, and his systems and policies resuscitated the economy. Now, in 2014 it appears that the president will pay the price for doing a good job. Logically, Americans actions make no sense, but it looks like the Democrats may lose the Senate to the Republicans.

Instead of American rewarding the Democrats with more representatives, it appears they will have less in the Senate. The political experts are forecasting that Republicans will take control of the House of Representatives and the Senate, and this would destroy the power balance in the federal government.

Presently the Democrats control the Senate and the Republicans control the House of Representatives, but if the Republicans control both the Houses, the agenda and initiatives will change. All the bills will be focused on conservative ideology and Tea Party policies.

At the present time in the Senate there are 53 Democrats, and 45 Republicans, with 2 independents voting with the Democratic caucus. But in this midterm election, there are 36 seats up for re-election and there are eight contests that can go other way. The Democrats are playing defense in these races, but most of these states are red or the Republican candidate has taken a small lead.

The states that are too close to call a winner are Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, New Hampshire, and North Carolina. The Republicans are spending millions of dollars in these races and the Democrats are having a hard time keeping up with GOP donations and super PAC’s.

In many of these races, the Democratic candidates refuse to allow the president to campaign in their state. They think that President Obama will hurt their chances to win their election, because many residents consider the president a failure. Republicans have convinced a segment of America that the president does not know what he is doing, and anyone who is a liberal that supports his policies is wrong.

America is at a crossroad, and the winners of this election will determine how our representatives will govern. If the Republicans gain control of the Senate, they will decide what does and does not get to the floor for consideration, and there would be a huge change in priorities. This would be terrible for the country and Obama’s presidency.

There will be less than seven days and America will decide which path it will choose. This election will determine if the country continues to move forward, or slip back into obstruction and misery. Please vote with your heart in the 2014 election, and vote Democrat.
