    With ObamaCare revealing that except for lies and incompetence Emperor Obama is naked, all around the country voters are turning against the president's political party and anyone who made it possible for ObamaCare to rape the middle class. Just a few months ago, the media thought the government shutdown would benefit Democrats in the 2014 midterms. Today the National Journal reports that a wave is building that will hand Republicans control of the United States Senate.A third of America's one-hundred U.S. Senators are up for re-election every two years. Of the 33 or 34 facing a 2014 election, the National Journal identifies 15 seats as vulnerable. Thirteen of those seats are held by Democrats. But of the 7 seats most likely to turn over, all 7 are held by Democrats. Republicans need only pick up 6 seats to win the chamber.

    Unlike the shutdown, ObamaCare is almost certain to be the gift that keeps on giving to Republicans as the law rains hell on American voters. By the government's own calculations, tens of millions more insurance cancellations are expected to hit next year. And if the Administration does get the website functional, that only means that Americans will discover the other bad news about lost doctors, premium increases, and sky-high deductibles.

    The unprecedented -- over 225 years -- move by Senate Democrats to kill the filibuster for presidential appointees is also a sign that Democrats see the writing on the wall. With only a year of majority control left, and ObamaCare dying a death of a thousand cuts, the nuclear option was the only move Obama had left to secure some kind of legacy by packing the courts and various regulatory agencies.

    In other news, talk of Democrats regaining control of the House was never a very real possibility and is now a distant memory.
    The good news for Republicans is that with control of both chambers, they will have two years to show the American people that they are far from obstructionists and do-nothings. John Boehner's House has passed a number of bills, but the media refuse to report that fact and Democrat Harry Reid refuses to even allow them to come up for a vote in the Senate.
    With Reid out of the picture, Republicans can craft a real agenda with real alternatives to Obama's relentless, failed statism.
    If this opportunity is handled well (always a long shot with the GOP), it could help the party heading into 2016.

    Certain Presidents turn the tide of history by destroying their political party, doing damage that lasts for many decades.

    Herbert Hoover was such a President. He was blamed for the Depression, and turned a Republican majority nation into a Democrat majority nation.

    History will note that Barack Hussein Obama is the Herbert Hoover of the Democrat party. We are going to see a sea change in politics, the destruction of the Democratic majority that has dominated this nation's politics since the days of the New Deal.

    The Democrats were very foolish to pass a new law that changes everything without a single Republican vote. Now, they have no one to blame but themselves for Obamacare's total failure.

    The sweep will continue also at the state and local level. Republicans will capture more governorships and state legislatures. Even local level offices will be impacted. District Attorneys, mayors, county supervisors, county judges, no Democrat will escape the carnage to come.

    The question is, will Republicans be worthy of the trust we give them when they win big in 2014? They had it all before, and they blew it. Let us hope they have learned from their mistakes.

    Never count your chickens before they hatch and don't underestimate the ability of the Democrats to stuff the ballot box.

    And the MSM will do its best to smear whichever republican seeks nominated (maybe not Christie).
