Appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe Tuesday morning, Politico's Jim VandeHei absurdly claimed that Republicans would be in big trouble if they took control of the Senate in the midterm election: "...even if Republicans win, I think they're going to be in a hell of a jam. In that they're not going to be able to get anything done."
VandeHei predicted Senators like Ted Cruz would be "breathing fire" and that "ultraconservatives" would control the party: "... and it's what's gonna make governing almost impossible over the next two years. This happy talk that things can get done is nonsense if you look at the history of the last four years in terms of how these House Republicans want to vote and what the base of the Republican Party responds to."
