Republican fears of historic Obama landslide unleash civil war for the future of the party
Senior Republicans believe that John McCain is doomed to a landslide defeat which will hand Barack Obama more political power than any president in a generation.
Parties behind in the polls often put out such messages to galvanise their milder supporters. Threatening them with an arrogant Obama if they don't get off their fat arses. And a lop-sided Congress which is what a "landslide defeat" entails.
The expression "Senior Republicans believe" is hardly one any intelligent person need bother about. The rest of the sentence is posited on this belief and can be valued accordingly.
Bernie- I do not accept for one moment your assertion that I am on the outside of things. You seem to wish to play with your bat, your ball, in your garden with your nearest and dearest as referee. Some of us have read other publications than those you have read.
Nobody is going to think you have won any argument by putting me on Ignore or saying that I'm on "The outside of things." Everybody could win every argument if it was as simple as that.
I'm not sure there is an argument. The next president will be governed by events, such as the Ukraine and Hungary asking to be bailed out, and I'm quite confident that both candidates will discharge the office reasonably well given all the expertise at their call.
