Tennessee Democrat leader Mike Turner seems to be under the same delusion that Barack Obama is. That jobs lost is somehow an overall gain.
While most pundits will admit the Tennessee House Republicans are poised to pick up at least 4-7 seats in the state house, Rep. Mike Turner seems to think any seat won is a net gain.
“Any gains we have we will be a victory for us,” Rep. Mike Turner, D-Old Hickory, told TNReport. “I think we can pick off three to six people within reason, and maybe if things go our way nationally a little better we might even get a little higher than that.”...
...“Our people will have 32, 33 people back… hopefully a little higher,”
Lets do the math. You have 35 now. If you pick up 3-6 you get 38 to 41. If you come back wit "32, 33 or a little higher" that is a net loss from your original 35. Is mike Turner Working for the Obama administration on unemployment numbers?
