Schadenfreude: Robert Gibbs Edition

This is making the rounds today:

There is no doubt there are enough seats at play that could cause Republicans to gain control, there is no doubt about that,” Gibbs told NBC’s “Meet the Press” talk show when asked whether the Democrats would maintain their majority in the House.

1101090518_400.jpgLess than a year and two months ago, Time Magazine declared Republicans an endangered species.My, my how things change.The fact is that there is no such thing as a permanent political majority. The Democrats, in their zeal to secure one with racial politics, form an Achilles heel unto themselves. The Republicans, in their zeal to secure one with seniors and steel workers, form their own.As Churchill said in his eulogy to Neville Chamberlain, “It is not given to human beings, happily for them, for otherwise life would be intolerable, to foresee or to predict to any large extent the unfolding course of events.”Events change all things, but that has never stopped the automatons of the liberal leaning mainstream media from declaring the death of conservatives and Republicans.
