The GOP's probability of taking over the United States Senate increased dramatically Wednesday with the entry of Rep. Cory Gardner into the race against incumbent Obamacare enthusiast Senator Mark Udall in Colorado.

Not one GOP seat is in danger of turning blue, despite all the yammering from Democrats about Kentucky and Georgia, where Mitch McConnell will coast and will Rep. Jack Kingston will emerge from a crowded Senate primary to win handily in the fall.

The biggest loser because of this move --other than Udall who is as tightly bound to Obamacare as President Obama himself-- is Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor, whose already sinking campaign is going to quickly find itself on the wrong side of the triage tent as Democratic strategists and donors realize that Re. Tom Cotton is unbeatable in the Razorback state.

Here's the list of Democratic seats which Republicans are positioned to take, from the mortal locks at the top down to the biggest but still possible reach at the bottom:
But you'll have to follow this linkto see them
"There's the list that makes Harry Reid twitch. How wonderful it will be to see him live with the rules he has enacted, all the precedents he has dashed, all the abuses he brought about. Cory Gardner made a lot of people happy yesterday, but not nearly as happy as November will make them."

And the mindlessly obedient dishonest press dutifully echoes whatever Obama and the Democrats tell them to say.

Tim: <<<"Democrats are avoiding being associated with Obama as much as possible, but they can't hide from their voting records... ">>>

--Sure they can, they just make stuff up and vilify the opposition, in order to make themselves appear as the lesser of two evils. Of course republicans now do this too to some extent...

Another thing that has to be considered in Udall’s bid for reelection.

Udall supported Obama’s gun control laws. Colorado just had two of its state senators recalled over two issues. First and foremost was the new gun control laws passed in Colorado. Udall also pushed for Colorado’s renewable energy mandate. That mandate is also becoming less and less popular as energy prices continue to climb and that also played a part in the recall of the two state senators, and a third who resigned rather than face the voters and possibly giving the Republicans a majority in the senate.

It looks more like the Democrat lie machine has failed.

If you like your doctor and your plan you can keep them no one is going to take them away, period.

The attack was not preplanned. It started as a protest over a video.

If you already have health insurance we are going to lower the premiums by up to $2500 per family a year.

One the IRS scandal, Obama said we will hold the responsible parties accountable.

Although he couldn’t get cap and trade, using the EPA he was able to keep one promise.

There's no need for such action when you have the myriad of colossal failures of the Obozo administration as ammunition. But, I understand your tendency to project...

It is pretty clear what is going on

No Republican, Conservative, Libertarian, Green Party, independent will swing to the Democrat column. (ok, close to zero since independents are usually lost)

A landslide of swing voters have abandoned the Democrat party and have no intent of going back in this election cycle.

1. Obama waived the employer mandate date
2. Now he waived the policy compliance mandate for employer plans (Union plans now safe)

Why am I forced to pay for the more expensive "compliant" plan?

because we fell into the Obama doughnut hole!

SMF!

Probably correct, pirate. Then the Democrats become the party of "NO" in a more obvious way than Reid's burying everything that comes to the Senate.

The swing voting block of independents who want something to actually improve will move even farther than they have from the Dems and 2016 will be a Democratic debacle.

Unless the Conservatives can pull a rabbit out of a hat & get a veto proof majority. Obama will just Veto anything passed across his desk. I do not se them getting that many seats.

That would be most delicious...both to watch them stew in their own impotence and also to see REAL progress in America where intelligent politicians don't have to compromise with the stupid ones in the name of "bipartisanship".

With ObozoCare and so many other Dumbocrat-crafted fiascoes, we've seen the enormous damage done by those who are wholly incompetent.

They should have remembers if you use the nuclear option you need to make sure it can’t be turned back on you. That goes for both war and politics.
