President Obama’s chief lackey and former spokesman Jay Carney had some candidly bad news for Democrats heading into the November midterm elections.
“It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats…”
“It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats by definition… The sixth year is always particularly bad for a president’s party. You couple that with the fact so many seats are defended by Democrats in red states where Mitt Romney did very well against the president, double-digits in most cases, and there’s no outcome in November that anybody could say would be great for Democrats, except for barely holding onto the Senate.”
Later, he added:
“The problem for Republicans if they win is Americans begin to think that ‘we hate Congress’ and it is now clear that one party is in control of Congress.”
