"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Why Democrats Are Scared

A new Rasmussen poll shows that 58% of Americans are against Obamacare, with 45% registering strong disapproval.   And that's before the cascade of disasters that's coming breaks (see below).   And remember... this is a disaster that was rammed through using questionable procedural tactics on a straight party line vote with zero Republican support.   The Democrats own this turkey, and they know it.

Election day 2014 is less than a year away, and Senate Democrats running for re-election know it in their bones, especially these red- or purple-state democrats:

  • Mark Begich, Alaska
  • Mark Pryor, Arkansas
  • Mark Udall, Colorado
  • Mary Landrieu, Louisiana
  • Jeanne Shaheen, New Hampshire
  • Tom Udall, New Mexico
  • Kay Hagan, North Carolina
  • Mark Warner, Virginia

And how do you think Democrats looking to replace retiring Democratic Senators in West Virginia, Montana, South Dakota, Iowa and Michigan are feeling right about now?

That's 13 Democratic Senate seats that, if Obamacare implodes, would be up for grabs.
