Van Hollen: GOP 'High On Their Own Hype'

7 years ago by David

The anti-incumbent feeling in the U.S. will not lead to Democrats losing the House, according to Rep. Chris Van Hollen. The Democratic senator was quoted as saying anyone who thinks that Republicans could take control of the House is in "la-la land."

He didn't back down from his comments Sunday. "I have always said, David -- way back a year ago, after the election of Barack Obama, I said this would be a tough political cycle," Van Hollen told NBC's David Gregory Sunday.

"The idea that [Republicans] will be measuring the drapes is clearly -- they are high on their own hype," he said.

(Nicole:) The polls back Van Hollen up, not that silly things like facts will ever stop conservative bobbleheads in predicting doom and gloom for the Democratic Party. From Polling Report:

Hell, look at Barack Obama's favorability ratings from the GOP's personal propaganda arm:

And that's after months of unrelenting negative coverage.

So GOP, don't go counting those chickens just yet...we've got a long way to go to get this country back on track after your years of horrible leadership, but the country isn't prepared to let the people who ran this ship aground back at the helm just yet.
