  •  Believe u underestimate 1) delusion that voters (0+ / 0-)

    will support their fiscal proposals if packaged as 'deficit control' (even tho they are the opposite) b/c of the mythology that this plus ACA is why they won in 2010, 2) power of gerrymandering, which means that most House Thugs are in CDs they think are safe, and 3) the chaos of both the power struggle between Thug 'wings' and the utter lack of real beliefs which could garner an actual plurality, let alone majority, of voter support.

    IOW, they will draw the wrong lesson from this, as they have from the 2012 election and every defeat before then, i.e.: that the fault is not the policy but how they marketed it.
