Election Day Sends Mixed Message To GOP

November 6, 2009 by  

Election Day sends mixed message to GOP Although many expected Tuesday’s elections to clearly express the voters’ disapproval of the direction the country is taking under the Democrats, the message sent by voters appears to be more nuanced.

On the one hand, the conservative Republican Bob McDonnell’s victory in the gubernatorial race in Virginia and moderate Republican Chris Christie win in New Jersey may be seen as a triumph for a party that appeared to be in disarray after two national electoral defeats in 2006 and 2008.

However, in the closely watched special election in New York’s 23rd congressional district, the conservative candidate — endorsed by such GOP heavyweights as Sarah Palin and Dick Armey as well as by Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck — was defeated by retired Air Force Captain Bill Owens, a Democrat.

In the run up to the vote, the liberal Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava withdrew under pressure from the party’s right wing, a development some interpreted as indicative of an ongoing feud between the far right and moderates for control of the party.

On Wednesday, GOP leaders sought to diminish the meaning of Hoffman’s defeat, with Republican Party chairman Michael Steele stressing the local nature of the election and suggesting the gubernatorial races were a better indicator of the party’s success.

However, President Obama’s campaign chairman David Plouffe suggested the Republicans were still divided as conservatives keep pushing for "purging moderates from the party," something the voters appear to disapprove of it.

    For the sake of America and the desire to take America back for those of us who desire to renain free sovereign people with our Constitutional Rights intact I work toward and pray for the removal of fascist puppet to the Elitist regieme Treasonous President Barack Obama! This man works to destroy America by design in aide of and for the foreign corporate take over by Off-Shote Foreiign Bankers, who work in and alongside of the Private Federal Reserve, which has taken over American finances and resources and holds America hostage under it’s hostile illegal take over! God Bless America!

    Finding the economy a little tough going lately? Are you noticing that prices seem to be going up and up, even on groceries? Do you find that your lifestyle is becoming crowded with restrictions and new laws and taxes that have come out of nowhere?
    Take a look at what has been going on and being planned for all of the world’s citizens by our Governments and the United Nations, give yourself a fighting chance decide for yourself and and research the facts after you watch the video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VebOTc-7shU

      Whether it is a conspiracy or just plain human nature, I do believe we are headed to a loss of our Sovereignty if we don’t get busy and start raising some hell.
      It is just human nature for leaders to want to grow their business and the leaders in government are not immune to that urge. The Liberals have been busy for decades spreading their propaganda while we slept. We need to identify the sources of their power and counteract them. Two big ones are the MSM and the Public Schools. Boycott the Liberal Networks and the Liberal Newspapers. Push for the Voucher System so that parents can send their kids to schools that educate their children instead of those that propagandize their children.

        Some people wont put their money where their mouth is Dave, and thats the problem. I cancelled my newspaper subscription 6 years ago, and they still call and want me to re-subscribe, and when I say no, they ask why, and I tell them the truth, that I can read more truth in the National Enquirer than in their liberal newspapers. I inform them that Im not into gossip, or political agenda’s, but that my newspaper should actually report stories and investigate the truth, not just give their liberal slant to everything, constantly attacking one side, and not even reporting things the other side does. So I cancelled. I stay off of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC, because again, they chose to politically slant their reports, and continually attack one side and give the left a free ride on everything. So for news I will turn on Fox News, who incredibly allows folks from the left to come on and state their views. You wont get that from the other guys. So I have boycotted and cancelled our local liberal newspaper, and I will not support the national news media propaganda outlets either.

        • Charliebug

          I won’t even take a free one when they hand them out here. Like you, I refuse to watch the liberal news media. The source of the liberals’ support is not only the media, however. It is the public schools, including and especially the colleges. Public schools and colleges are dependent upon the government for their funds. Professors are dependent upon grant monies for their funded studies and for their publishings. It is quite clear that the entirety of the academic community has a vested interest in supporting whatever they are told to support by the powers that be. I call those powers, the oligarchy of the very rich. Has anyone noticed the preponderance of ads for loan money for online education for courses for which no jobs are available? Of course, nothing is heard from the academic establishment about this because they have a strong vested interest in perpetuating their existence, no matter what.

    • Richard Pawley

      It is not just Bush or Obama who are doing these things. They can do little without Congress approving it. Yes, prices are going up and they are going to go up a great deal more, especially food. All this stimulus money was mostly squandered on Wall Street and companies who should have been allowed to fail (but only in a self-cleaning capitalist system, not in a government run socialist system). The result of spending all this money would normally be that a company or person goes broke, but since we can just print more (and have) this is going to cause at least 200% inflation, and quite possibly more. Inflation by the way is a hidden tax whereby central banks siphon off value. It is not just prices going up. The derivatives that I warned about in my first book are now, as I pointed out in my second one, exceeding the value of the entire planet by several times, and central banks need inflation to make money on derivatives. Why would India suddenly dump 6.7 Billion dollars and other currencies to buy half the 400+ tonnes of gold that the IMF was disposing off. Gold is going up too but I suspect not as high as food, not ultimately. Russia isn’t selling much gold, China has surpassed South Africa as a gold producer yet they are buying and encouraging their citizens to buy it. The Arabs certainly aren’t selling but are buying. They used to demand gold for oil when I was a kid, maybe they will again. What we need is an entirely new Congress with a mere handful of exceptions. Forget labels, it has almost become meaningless to say someone is Republican or Democrat. What do they stand for, what is their record? I don’t care what they call themselves. Obama did not lie when he said he planned a complete change of our system but without Congress he can’t do much. Everyone who wants improvement, not just change needs to work to replace Congress or there will never be change. We need honest, moral men and women who are not interested in power and control but in helping people to help themselves. Russian think thanks believe that the US is going to break up into five countries after the financial crises really hits us and the dollar collapses. Obama will be blamed just as Hoover was but it is Congress who is behind the scenes passing laws that constantly reduce freedom. Remember you can’t eat your stocks and bonds or even gold. The fortunate ones will be those who can pray for guidance and direction. The others are going to be at the mercy of time and circumstance. You don’t have to believe any of this. I’m not trying to Pelosi-Reid you, just live through the next few years and you may see it all firsthand. May God help us all. No one else is going to do so!

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        You are right about this congress thing. No president has absolute power to come in and do what he wants. Congress has the say so. Thats why I laugh when the liberals get on these sites and yell from the mountains how Bush put us into this illegal war in Iraq, when the congress voted for it, as did all the major democrats, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Howard Dean, Tom Daschle, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton. They all did. But after the left wing liberal press falsely reported making it look like a failure for a couple of years, without reporting our gains and the freedom or any good things, the public opinion turned as did all these folks that voted for it, acting like Bush is a dummy for sending us there, when they all pushed for it in the beginning. And shame on the liberal press, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC not doing story after story after story, where they should have shown the new clips of all these left wing liberals yelling on TV how Saddam has WMD’S and how he is dangerous and has to be stopped, then months later going on TV and attacking Bush for going to war. Any responsible news agency should have been playing their lying clips back to back all day, exposing them for the liars they are. And if they want to attack for going to war, attack congress, as it took a vote of congress to do it. These are the facts.

  • Theresa

    Okay, first of all, M Btok, Conspiracy theorize much? You sound like you are the leader of the babbling idiots running around throwing tea at people and demanding to see Obama’s birth certificate (which has already been provided).
    I believe that I, like many other Americans, are just sick and tired of the ideologues attempting to legislate my morality. I was a republican for most of my life. Desiring smaller government and lower taxes. However, for the last eight years, they have not produced that. They appeared to be heading towards a police state! Telling me who I can sleep with and listening in on my personal conversations! What happened to the Constitution? Cheney took a crap on it, that’s what happened to it. And Georgie-boy cheered him on!
    I voted for Obama. He is what this country needed after 8 years of failed policies and corrupt leadership.

    • Robin from Indiana

      Theresa…
      I was born and raised a Democrat. I was an adult and married before I seen how wrong I was. President Bush made some errors in judgment, but nothing like what is currently happening. I made an error in being Democrat, but I have seen the error of my ways. I shudder to think of how they are destroying our great nation. I am a conservative. I hope the Republicans get back to where they need to be, which is on the right. I don’t know what made you go off the deep end, but you have jumped from the frying pan into the fire!

      • Deena Swafford

        The Untied States was in much disaray after the Bush Administration put it in the hole. Ten months cannot recover 8 years of default. His cronies on Wall Street is getting and spending the money.

        • Neal

          Something you liberals seem to forget is that for 4 years of Bush’s 8 years in the White House, we had a Democratic led Congress and senate.

          Also Obama has increased the deficit more in 10 months than any other president in a full term.

          He is pushing this country closer and closer to socialism. WEDO NOT WANT THAT!!!!!

    • johnQ

      Once again, you liberals are close minded to the fact that your savior is an illegal alien. The lout has spent almost 2 million to hide his real birth certificate. He has only released a certificate of live birth, which anyone can get. Why won’t you open up your eyes and leave your bias at the door, and agree that if McCain had used the same for his bona fides, that he would have been shut out of the election. Just look at what has happened since the fraudulent election stolen by BarryCorn! He has not done one thing he said he would do. Open debate on Television. Transparency in everything involving his administration. Bull, this clown is a liar and a usurper. Period. Open your eyes.

      • Ella

        Yea john Q, but I heard officially that the real birth certificate has been located in Area 51. The plan is to hi-jack Santa’s sleigh and on Christmas eve little “people” dressed as elves will drop off a copy in the chimney’s of ever person in the world. They’re still working out the details on getting them to the homeless, infirmed and those in the war theater. I’ll keepya posted but keep it on the QT for now.

      • Conservagirl

        johnQ, you are aware that John McCain had to have a special session of the Congress in order to run for president didn’t you? Only advising you of the facts, that he wasn’t a clean bean either. Obama has been vetted by the best we could round up and we need to acknowledge that it is a dead horse.

    • DaveH

      Theresa,
      Look at the Libertarian Party Platform. They might fit right in with your philosophy:
      http://libertarianparty.org/platform

    • Merry

      Hoffman was an Independent and still got 47% of the vote. He ran this race himself. Nobody even heard of him until a few weeks ago. The fact that Scuzzo dropped out proves the point – nobody wanted a liberal Republican in office. Anyone who thinks Obama and his hatchet men are friends of the Constitution better wake-up…what part of Total Government Control do you not get? It’s time to start voting for candidtates that also believe in small government, controlled spending and keeping their hands in their pockets – we don’t need your help, Washington. We need you to shut-up.

      • Conservagirl

        Merry, you are missing the point. People didn’t want Palin and Rush coming in telling them who to put in office. Elections are a local process and I would also be offened if someone who knew nothing about my needs decided I should vote for someone who didn’t even live in my district. We are not being smart with our politics. Force doesn’t work. Look at how they responded. Palin and the rest of the commentators need to stay out of the local political arena.

    • V Sizemore

      Talk about corrupt leadership! That is Obama and this administration with no accountability to anyone! Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama and this administration has more corrupt, unethical behavior than all the other administrations put together!!!!

      You are the one drinking the kook-aid, oops, I mean kool-aid! How long are the Liberals going to blame Bush/Chene? But Obama doesn’t hesitate in taking credit for things even if there is no credit at all due. It’s called fabricating and lying about the results. Oh, yes, they have saved hundreds of thousands of jobs! Even if same people who ran out of unemployment are allowed to reenter the system, we won’t see the true numbers because they are taking much less paying jobs just to survive and foregoing the unemployment income.

      This administration is a disaster to America!!!

      • DaveH

        I suspect that even if Obama was reelected (an ugly thought) he would continue blaming Bush for the rest of his 8 years. I’ve never seen Democrat leaders admit fault for their failed policies.
        This current bust was presided over by a majority Democrat Congress. Yes, Bush should have vetoed everything they sent to him, but he was buying into the Bipartisan propaganda that Liberals spew. You can’t compromise with these people. Their idea of compromise is to suggest 40% growth in Government and accept 20%. We are never going to reduce the size of government by playing politics the Bipartisan way.
        If the registered Republicans are going to hang tough with the party, then the very least they can do is to insist on nominating Republican candidates who are going to work towards smaller government.
        Better yet, register as Libertarians and help us build our party – The Party of Limited Government and Individual Responsibility.

    • DaveH

      And Theresa, could you please not introduce name-calling and ridicule into the comments?

      • JeffH

        Name calling by a liberal Democrat? DaveH, what is this world coming to. Unheard of!

    • slrdeluxe

      I’m glad that you are taking responsibility for your mistake of Obamaworld. Remember, his highness wants you to turn in any e-mails that are against his highness.

    • Rick Davis

      Dear lost and confused Theresa,
      Lets work backwards and help you out of your brainwashing.
      1) What failed policies of President Bush are speaking of?
      2) President Bush inherited a Democrat nightmare called Osama bin Laden Why you may ask? Because Clinton could have had him a number of times but, unlike Pres Bush, he had no cajones, and what he had were taken by Hillary after Monica…the tail wagging the dog Monica?

      Soooo he inherited 9/11 …and what did he do? a failed policy of lower taxes and less government interference in our daily lives..and Voila…4-5% unemployment for 7 years..and no attacks by the Islamic terrorists, oh I mean man-made distasterists….oh yes and Obama, Mr Fixit-hope-and change?…said he wouldn’t let the present rate go above 8% so he enacted a ‘stimulus’…”RIGHT NOW !!!” I say NOW !!!”…Where are we today Ms Politically Correct? I’ll tell ya…10.4% …thats today, Nov 6th 2009… thats right Jimmy Carterian numbers….
      3)Obama’s Birth certificate:
      Has NOT been provided. Only a statement that he was born in Hawaii. That statement uses modern computer type font, there were no PC’s in 1961 sweetheart….and thats sounds a lot like…mmmm…Dan Rather’s phony military record of President Bush??

      3b)There is a 24/7/365 FBI guard at the alleged hospital where he was allegedly born, to make sure that no right wing racist idiot-tea throwing radical (where did you get the throwing part Braniac?) breaks in and snatches the REAL document which will NOT show that he was born in Hawaii OR the certifiacte doesn’t exist there at all..but in Indonesia…point of fact is (I Know terry baby, dont confuse you with the facts) is that the actual Birth Certificate has never been produced.
      4) Conspiracy? No a five year plan..just like the one that was used to inflate the Obama Doll in a Chicago apartment years ago so as to have a candidate that was foolproof…sounds like a Maoist 15 year plan?? It was Marxist…
      My fingers are tired of effortlessly debunking your well-worn cliches suppositions, and lies.. I’ll have my girl call your girl for lunch OK deary?
      Best wishes on your recovery,
      Rick

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        Rick, your not supposed to confront the left with facts and truth. You confuse them. They dont get it.

      • http://Yahoo Dee D

        Rick: Maybe Obama would not have the mess of Afghanistan if Bush had not broken his promise to get the one who financed the blood shed here in America. He should have finished the job.
        Instead of keeping his word he turned tail and took our brave troops into Iraq to be killed in a country that had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11, all based on a pack of lies.

    • tyM

      This the same ignorant mess that I am so tired of. Still Blaming George W.Bush for something that clearly is the fault of the Obama administration. George W. Bush and Cheney sure as heck took liberties and made mistakes. However, if you cannot or will not open your eyes and see the corruption in the white house as well as the governments grab for more and more control over our everyday lives by forcing taxes, unemployment, and prices through the roof so that we are forced to fall in line with the policies they are trying to force us into, then i truly feel you should wake up and smell coffee. I also supported Obama until I saw that not one of his promises have been even attempted to be fullfilled, that he is for everything he said he wasnt, and that he is totally undesicive when it comes to military desicions. A no to General McChrystal would be better than nothing at all. If you cannot see any of this then i truly feel sorry for you blindness.

      • Allen

        You are very right tyM. What I’d like the left to see is the fact that Barry O is a Muslim in all ways. The Koran (Queran) tells it’s followers that to lie to non-Muslims is not only acceptable, but required. Anytime they lie for the “faith” they get closer to salvation. You cannot believe anything a muslim tells you. Barry O is being a very good Muslim. He constantly lies to push his Muslim agenda on the US and also renigs on all promises and then points the finger at those who oppose him. He uses so much deceit in his everyday dealimgs that he comes off being the oppressed rather than the oppressor.
        Next point is the fact that Barry O uses all his perceived authority to push his agenda. If he can’t get Congress to go his way, he gets the courts to do it for him. If he gets a majority of his selectees on the US Supreme Court you will see even more legislation from the bench. The Administrative branch of Government is not supposed to write laws for Congress to debate. The writing of laws, constitutionally, belongs to congress, but that does not stop this administration from writing and proposing laws.
        Also, you all are correct on the point of Barry O not producing a valid birth certificate, only a computer generated “Certificate of live Birth” which is not valid. My daughter lost her birth certificate and aquired a certificate of live birth and was turned down for a school grant and social services because the Certificate Of Live Birth was not acceptable, yet we have a sitting POTUS that was allowed to use the COLB to attain the highest office in the land.
        God Help us all.

    • Sergio Torres

      It is obvious to many of us that you are an uninformed voter. If you mean that this country needs a change toward communisim, the taking away of our personal freedoms, government control of our lives then you are right we need that communist Obama and his communist cronies (Czars) running our country. It is people like you who make me regret that I ever fought any wars for our freedom.

      Please do us all a favor who love and cherish our nation, move to Cuba or China because your vote showed that you hate the USA.

      • JeffH

    • Evan

      The Democrat Party has moved consistently and extensively to a more liberal, even socialist position from their platforms in the 1950′s and ’60′s. Apparently, they expect Republicans to shift to the left with them. Conservatives approach change with caution. Change indicates growth, but extraordinary change generally is accompanied with unforeseen problems, many of which are catastrophic. The so-called “right wing extremists” of the current Replublican party are simply standing firm on their tried-and-true foundations and values. If you think about it, for all the change and excitement the Revolution was fraught with, its protagonists were right-wing extremists! They set the new nation on a path that would keep it on a strong and secure path for generations to come. When we stray from those values, we get chaos, frustration, fear, loss of clear direction, loss of individual responsibility to the family and community; not to mention runaway inflation, corruption, cronyism, deficit spending, staggering debt and on and on!

      Regarding the birth certificate that has been proferred, it does not even qualify as legal evidence of Hawaiian birth in Hawaii! And by-the-way, what ever happened to the transparency of this administration?

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      Theresa. Where is the public revealing of this birth certificate? Are you talking about the altered picture they did of one on-line? And fakes can be produced anytime, anywhere. If it was real, he would have produced it right away, and not he-hawed around about it. And since you admit to voting for Obama, how do you like the change, with millions unemployed, millions more coming when they rescind the Bush tax cuts in 2010. How do you like billions being given to GM and Chrysler so the democrats can buy UAW votes for at least the next few elections? How do you like their attempt at socializing health care, thus destroying the best healthcare in the world. If you can, read line 16, page 96, section 213 under Insurance Rating Rules, where you will find its says a monthly abortion premium will be charged of all enrollees in the government run plan. The premium will be paid into a U.S. Treasury account and these federal funds will be used to pay for the abortion services.”. You like this? Really. Well, I dont, and millions of others dont. And as you have seen what just went down in Virginia and New Jersey, America is fed up allready. And notice the in-fighting of these power hungry cats. Obama blames the guy in Virginia for distancing himself from the Obama White House. The guy in Virginia blames Obama for his failed policies. Its infighting at its best. These next few months are going to be better than any sitcom ever made. Im going to sit back and enjoy watching it. It will be like watching trailer trash with money going after each other. Bon apetite. Your guys screwed up, they screwed up quick, they screwed up huge, and they are done. Its over. Have a great day.

    • corvettelady

      Theresa, I’m afraid you’re still asleep. Obama, Bush, and those before are merely puppets for the elite who are the secret societies that are never mentioned to the public. They are Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Illuminati, Skulls & Bones (Bush Family are members), Bilderbergers, etc. The elite chooses who the next President will be and it doesn’t matter if it’s Republican or Democrat – both parties are corrupt and owned by the elite. The Federal Reserve Bank who are not part of our government control the monetary system, Wall Street, Goldman Sachs, the list goes on. Look up the history on Federal Reserve, Rothchilds, Bilderbergers and you’ll get a more understanding of the craziness going on today. The MSM is controlled by the elite spewing propaganda to the masses to keep those still asleep distracted, disoriented with TV a great mind control tool, mass distribution of pharma drugs to keep people sick, children dumbed down. The current swine flu vaccines is just a money-making scam and to make you sick or kill (you don’t want to know what’s in it). We don’t even have a pandemic for crying out loud and the swine flu is a man-made virus. Just take extra Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, olive leaf extract, garlic, colloidal silver and you’ll be fine. I don’t believe anything the government tells us anymore. Whatever they tell you, it’s the opposite. If they say the economy is getting better, it’s the opposite because they don’t want the people to get scared. We have a President (who says we have 57 states, refuses to show REAL birth certificate), who is just a community organizer, Congress particularly Pelosi & Reid who has gone mad particularly with healthcare (when they all have their own special healthcare), Cap & Trade (will destroy all American jobs, businesses), passing several laws quietly and secretly taking away more of our freedom, etc. and what does this mean? We have a combination of Marxism, Socialism, Facism, and Communism. We have foreign troops on our soil (they were at G-8 Summit in Pittsburgh – look out that turned out). Our government has been hijacked. This is all the elite’s plan towards NWO and control of the population. Ever here of FEMA concentration camps? They’re destroying the middle class. The countless unnecessary wars that’s keeping us in debt for several decades. Thousands continue to get laid off, more foreclosures – how are these people going to live when there are no jobs out there? There will be another Revolution to get our country back to where it belongs – TO THE PEOPLE!!! I just hope we’re not too late!

        Dan, must you degrade someone, can’t you use your vast knowledge of the english language and try not to call someone an idiot? If you think brow beating someone will change their mind, you are mistaken. Not only have you now allenated someone, you have made an enemy for the Conservative/Republican party. We need all the help we can get to make any changes. Name calling and having a superior attitude will not get us what we need.

    • ccg

      Yeah Theresa
      You who claimed to have always wanted a smaller Government voted for someone who is only going to make it grow even more. Ha, he HAS made it grow even more.
      Plus you are worried about someone listening to your personal conversations. This man Obama set up a website to get people to send him names of those who disagreed with him. Send him the actual emails and all. The WH had to close it down as they got too much flak from it. You don’t know what corrupt leadership is girlie. Bush was trying to keep us safe as a nation. No, I did not agree with a lot of what he did, but Obama isn’t so worried about keeping us safe as he is puffing himself up at the expense of the United States.

      You fell for Obama’s lies.

      • http://Yahoo Dee D

        ccg: I think Cheney created the largest government department bureaucracy in the history of the United Stated.
        In 2000 and 2001 with Cheney in office over 2 million Americans lost their jobs, but all the right screams , Obama done it.
        Cheney cut unemployment benefits for more out of work Americans than any other president in US history.
        More convicted criminals were appointed to administrative positions than under any other administration in US history.

      Ok, Fellow Americans, will you sit there arguing about who is wrong, it is clear we again have made a terrible mistake. It has come time to take a stand. The HealthCare Bill passed the House barely, but it passed. So, I say, before it is all over, we must take immediate action to stop any further actions by this administration and the Government. The madness must stop now!

Second, don’t be surprised if the FDA shows up at your front door, demanding to know what mind-bending drug you’ve been taking. Third, I used to think bubba clinton was bad. Now I know what it takes for a new prez to make clinton look like an improvement. Fourth, I doubt very much if you were ever a conservative. This web site attracts quite a few braindead geeks who claim they were conservatives.
    Enjoy the show. Your prez has what it takes to destroy America from within. An old saying says that those who go to bed with dogs tend to pick up fleas. In the case of your prez, it’s more like getting a mental and moral STD. Your ‘leader’ is anything but a leader. Comrade obama must wince and go into spasms every time someone reminds him that he has SWORN to preserve, protect and DEFEND the Constitution. On a good day, he’s CLUELESS. I suspect you have the same problem. Ultralibs who make sense are rare, and you are not one of them, Theresa. Take a hike.

      Makes Bill Clinton look like a boy scout. While Clinton screwed one woman after another in there, Obama is trying to screw us all at the same time. Virginia and New Jersey just fired the first salvo. These losers are on their way out.

    Imagine what the result in NY 23 might have been if the RNC had spent the $900,000 on Hoffman instead of Scozzafava. Or what if people were paying attention and were aware that Scozzafave was no longer ON THE BALLOT? Hoffman came out of nowhere and almost took this one. I’m not impressed with the spin that this election shows the Repuplican party needs to be more moderate. We need to stand for the principles of SMALLER GOVERNMENT, LOWER TAXES and therefor MORE JOBS, and PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for our lives. We will win more often than not.

    • Robin from Indiana

      Great post! I am shocked that Hoffman did not take NY 23. I think the Republican candidate must have been so bad that the Dem looked good. Hoffman should have taken it. If I lived there, he would have gotten my vote for sure!

    • DaveH

      Plus Scozzafava threw her support to the Democrat when she withdrew. Talk about a RINO!
      The Republican Party needs to get back to its traditional roots of Limited Government if they want to become relevant again. If they had stood tight on Reagon’s policies then maybe the Democrats would have won sometimes, but at least the voters would then be able to discern a choice when the Democrats failed with their economic policies.

    • Rick Davis

      Dear Sue,
      Unfortunately, or at least dubiously, she was on the ballot, only not as a Republican. She already came out and endorsed the Dem anyway…she was on as some Working Family Party or Acorn backed party…just to take votes away from Hoffman.

        The Republicans had NY23 lost from the gitgo. They put their backing into a RINO.
        “Democrat Bill Owens — unexpectedly endorsed by Republican Dede Scozzafava, who dropped out of the race mere days ago — defeated Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman”

        Rush and Palin didn’t lose this election, the Republican Party screwed this one up, terribly.

  • drgndnce

    Do you know all the votes in the 23rd district haven’t been counted yet. On election day the voting machines went down and a judge ordered them impounded. According to the report from channel 9 in syracuse, the paper ballots and absentee ballots won’t be counted until next week. The county is Fulton County and it has 22 districts. I guess their votes don’t count. I’d like to know who sits on that Board of Elections.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      You can bet all the democratic votes will get counted. If it is a predominately republican voting area, it will probably get buried. Remember when the dems all cried that Gore got more votes but Bush stole the election? They seemed to forget the tens of thousands of military votes that never got opened, you know, where the democrats purposely mailed out the ballots to these areas so they wouldnt have them on time. Then Bush won anyways and they didnt need them, so they were never counted. But the left when they like to cry that Bush stole the election, they conveniently forget about all those ballots.

    The one intelligent thing the Republican Party can do to regain the respect and backing of American citizens is to BACK OFF from the idiocy of pandering to the criminal illegal aliens by advocating amnesty for the twenty million (and counting)spawn from the sewer south of our border.

    As one of the “blue-dog” Democrats who feels unwelcome in a party now run by left-wing extremists, I am shaking my head at the “battle” for control of the GOP. What are you guys thinking of? Reminds me of a conservative friend of mine during the last election who refused to vote for McCain because of some vote he cast in the Senate…I told him at the time “Congratulations, you have just helped put the Extreme left in control of the Democratic party and the US…hope it was worth keeping your principles intact.”
    I am prepared to vote Republican this time, not because I agree with everything that the GOP stands for, but because I believe that the current direction of my party is dangerous. If you guys can’t learn to get together and compromise, then we’re all doomed to fail. C’mon, stop trying to purge your party. You can’t tell me that conservatives are happy to see another Democrat in the US House.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      The GOP really screwed up in 2008, when they tried to run a 150 year old, career politician for president. I truly believe, that if Sarah Palin, or Mitt Romney, or Rudy Guliani would have been running with McCain as VP, any and all of them would have won. What were the Republicans thinking. As soon as I seen McCain running and Obama spending billions on the the commercials change-change-change, I about got sick. I knew it was over. Business’s did do, that why they stopped being productive, saving money to pay these left wing tax monsters that are in power now.

      • JeffH

        Beberoni, one small correction. Obama didn’t spend millions on his campaign. Soros and his large group of 527′s spent million, bought the media and bought anything else it took to get this Wright/Ayers tutored radical as the head of state.

        • Ella

          No, unfortunately Jeff, it’s not a generalization. Did exactly what it took when I started up the biz, I didn’t draw a salary and loaned co $ from my personal account. It was worth it considering I kept 3 of my most experienced, qualified staff from seeking employment with my competitors. At the same time my customers all went net 60 days. Altho I provide simple IRA and health insurance, guys haven’t had a raise in 6 years but I assured them if they stuck with me, I’d make it worth their wait. Insurance cost is killing me so had to go with $5,000 deductible which is bizarre! Corporate America on the other hand takes the money and runs, closes the doors and ships ops foreign lands.

She and Dick Armey are a disaster waiting to happen.

  • ArtinChicago

    Stay focused on getting back our government from the idiots elected by liberals. These elected imbeciles and their stupid appointees like Janet Napolitano, have to be removed, if we are to remain a free Republic. The appeasing Republican Party is by NO MEANS the answer. They are busy tapping their feet in public bathroom stalls to the beat of sick liberals. As responsible Americans that wish to remain free, we must examine each candidate and ask ourselves “If we were laying unconscious after being hit by this candidate on a lonely road, would we trust this candidate to do the right thing and notify the police, or would we end up like Mary Jo Kopecky at the hands of Ted Kennedy (may he burn in hell forever)?”

      There has to be someone better suited than Steele to lead the Republican party back to reality. Don’t misunderstand my comment, I am niether a racist nor a Republican or Democrt. There are a few “small” parties with good conservative values, but everyone is so hooked on the Dems or the GOP, that they won’t look outside their parties for bonified leadership. Personally, Sarah Palin has better conservative qualities and a bonified love for this country than all of the Dems and GOP combined. She has also lived the common, middleclass life facing the same types of family problems. Is she the right one for the job? I can’t answer that. Do I trust her? Absolutley! She does have more qualifications and experiance than Obama has. I think she is a participant in the real world. Be objective and put all of the ridicule aside and look at her accomplishments. I think you all would be surprised.

            Somehow, ella sees colin powell as an icon (if you have low standards for RINOS and other turncoats). Normally, someone like colin powell would seem a responsible, former 4-star general. However, powell doesn’t have any use for the Second Amendment, and he tends to lavish praise on weasels like arlen specter. That makes him a strict liability to people who
            love freedom and hate slavery.
            Most likely, other icons on ella’s special list include saul alinsky, lenin, marx, hitler, chairman mao, margaret sanger, j m keynes, hugo chavez, fidel castro, che, queen pelosi, al ‘gotta be rich at America’s expense’ gore and anyone else who
            wants to be on a self-made pedestal. People like ella defend these ‘icons’ with a passion best viewed as obsessive. Without a doubt, she sees comrade obama as someone who turns water into wine, and can resurrect the dead just in time for the next photo-op media circus. Just what this web site needs – another delusional ultralib who thinks political ‘saviors’ will save us from ourselves (if only we’d fall in love with an all-powerful government). Sad, sad, sad.

    Nancy Pelosi has controlled the nation’s checkbook since 2006 when she became speaker. Whatever Bush did or did not do,it was signed off on by Nancy. The TARP spending bill was created to remove toxic assets from the bank’s ledgers. When BO took office, the funds were diverted to union bailouts and political payoffs and taking over various businesses. When Nancy took office, the unemployment stood at 4.6%. It is now 10.2% and will rise even higher and will remain there for a long time. When you hire a man with only 6 months experience to do a job and he screws up, you have only yourself to blame. When you hire a business manager that has never held a significant job other than government or run a business, you have to expect a certain amount of failure even if the guy acts like a rock star. The only way to limit the damage the fools in Congress can do is to balance the right wing fools against the left wing fools and see to it that neither side has a great majority.

          • libertytrain

            CindyL – I would have agreed with you at an earlier time but decided to actually look it up myself and “Troll” does have a very clear Internet meaning that seems to fit many who post – like those that use many identities – especially at one time – You know what I mean. Oh and here’s that definition of troll again with regard to the Internet -
            “In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response[1] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.”

          • CindyL

            libertytrain, it doesn’t matter, he is still calling someone a name, even if we think it is true. Bob asked that we don’t call each other names. I thought our side was smart enough to debate and use facts to dispell any lies that the “other side” throws at us? New people, who don’t have internet savvy, will just think we are disrepectful and give no credence to our arguements or statements.

          • libertytrain

            CindyL – I don’t really think it’s name calling – it’s a style of Internet prowler – one that uses multiple identities to create havoc – You know what I mean. Internet trolling has become quite in vogue by the left – don’t you really think so? New people will figure it out – that Internet Trolls are trying to be Internet savvy but always show their true face/colors – don’t you really think so?

          • CindyL

            libertytrain, don’t really know what the left finds in vogue, just know that when any name calling is happening, it is discouraging as it makes it appear as though people aren’t giving respect to Bob’s request to not do that one simple thing.

    When will you realize that voting for “the least of two evils” will by design only elect just that, more of the same—— evil.
    Big business, for more than a hundred years, has bought enough votes in congress from all parties to insure the passage of incremental stages of socialism. The Socialist Party leader stated plainly in 1972 that it would no longer be necessary to raise a candidate since the Democratic Party had accepted all the socialist platform planks.
    All you two party registrants have been sold out for many decades.
    It’s beyond me how anyone can assume that those that have sold you out will not amend the same legislation to guarantee maximum returns on their investments in legislatively protected monopolies thereby using consumers to pay for future perks and re-election funds for the legislators that they have purchased. All legislation being rushed through today will do more of the same and diminish your national sovereignty.
    The only true representation that any voter ever had existed before political parties became part of political process. Party line now rules.
    When government employees and their families can vote their candidate into office, the vote of the working class that supports the entire capitalist system of parasites and government payroll not authorized by your constitution will be a minority. Most of the budget is consumed by departments copied from planks of The Communist. Manifesto Have we exceeded the limit?

    The future of the Republican party lies in its returning to politically conservative roots by adapting a platform of small, Constitutional government and fiscal conservatism (not religious conservatism). The trick will be to keep the platform that simple and resist pressure to expand the platform. KISS will win; expanding the platform beyond that of small, Constitutional government and fiscal conservatism will only harm the party and provide additional opportunity (fronts) for our enemies to attack.

    I was UNAF until February 2009 when I switched my affiliation to Republican. In our state an UNAF can vote in either primary. So if you want to have the most effect without actually “working” within a party then that is the “best bang for the buck”! If you are willing to “work” then join the Republican party and work with them. Try to become a delegate to the conventions so you can help choose the party officers and influence the choice of candidates and encourage like minded patriots to do the same.

    I will work with the Republican party to draft the best candidate/s that we can field but I don’t vote for a/the party; I vote for my Country before all else and I make sure that it is known that I will vote for the candidate that I feel is best for my Country whatever their affiliation. I, also, let them know I will not tolerate “business as usual” politics.

    The more of us that get active and work together and refuse to tolerate “business as usual” politics the better our chances to restore our republic without invoking the final option. It will do us little good to have another Republican dominated government if all we get is more “business as usual” politics!

    You can all blather on incessantly but the fact is that the Republican Party is lost. They have forgotten their own ideals!

    Ronald Reagan said, “We should emphasize the things that unite us and make these the only ‘litmus test’ of what constitutes a Republican: our belief in restraining government spending, pro-growth policies, tax reduction, sound national defense, and maximum individual liberty. As to the other issues that draw on the deep springs of morality and emotion, let us decide that we can disagree among ourselves as Republicans and tolerate the disagreement.”

    Can you imagine Palin/Gingrich/Cheney/Steele saying anything like that? No.
    Until they can come together and stop judging those who are not “pure” enough to belong to their little club, they will fail as a party.

      How would you describe the ideals of the other party considering where they have led us in the last 100 years? Every master move has been toward one world socialism.
      Are you suggesting that the Republican Party can provide a better candidate for President when their bottom line process can only produce party controlled flunkies? More of the same is the very best that they can do when party continuity is held higher than historical truth.
      Look back at their choices 1992. The “read my lips” vow by an incumbent Republican laid down a royal carpet for an unknown Democrat with a trail of corruption all the way back to his Oxford training. Who do you think destroyed his vow of “no new taxes”? The only economic success candidate then was Ross Perot. Two party politics insured his zero electoral vote. Study the state by state design of the electoral college that insures two party continuity down to the numbers.
      Look past the economic pandemonium that is caused by neither party but by members of both parties looking for easy money and incumbency. insurance. They pass legislation for a presidential signature or veto and call for an investigation of any activity interfering with the checks and balances of the designed republic
      Are you just a willing follower? Never forget where some of the best speakers such as Adolph Hitler and Fidel Castro have led their followers. Leading sheep becomes much easier when they give up their bill of rights to silver tongued leader. Presenting factual truth is a tough chore when they know what you like to hear and refuse to discuss anything risky except by using general terminology that soothes the sheep and infuriates those that know what is really happening behind the media hype.
      Although the money trail is obvious, you may not be capable of handling the historical truths that you find by simply searching outside the popular media box. For your future’s sake give it a try. The truth is out there. Go for it.

      I think most everyone realizes the Republican Party is a big part of the problem as is the Democratic Party. Party lines on both sides suck! That is where the problems lie with politicians of each party.
      We would have been losers no matter if McCain had won over Obama. Obama brings a new bird into the cage, a socialist/marxist/communist twist, designed to dismantle America as it is. He is exposed almost daily, can’t or won’t make hard decisions other than governmentizing health care, surrounding himself with commuists, socialists and facist thinkers. Ayers, Soros, J.Wright, VanJones, Sunsteen,Pelosi,Reid,Frank,Soros,Lisa Jackson,Richard Trumka,Tony and Heather Podesta,Al Gore ,John Podesta,Ellen R. Malcolm, and a host of others including Daschle who went to the White House on Jan. 25, five days before it became public that he had not paid $128,000 in taxes over three years.
      These people bother me and I would hope some of them would make you suspicious also.

    people what were seeing here is tip of the spear that will devastate the party of hipocrisy and socialism,many of the people who voted to have there mortgages paid have finally come to reality that not only were these false promises,but the new president is seeking to takeover all major industries,okay there not that far but at least they are pulling the right lever,some of moderate liberals know there toast at first opportunity if they don`t stop the madness immediately,I myself have serious concerns for my family,if any of these insane legislative bills go through it will quite probably mean an era of massive poverty,of which i won`t allow my children to endure,so that said we must stop these mentally challenged people whom pretend to represent the people.The states are part of the republic not vice-versa

    And now Congress has passed their Health Deform Bill. It’s a dark day in America’s history when the government is half way to controlling our lives and making us the slaves they believe we should be. I’m not going down without a fight. Lets bring on troops home and eliminate the real enemy. The politicians in Washington.

    ****Sergio – No need to move to China. Cheney/Bush administration sold us out to them and we need to start learning Chinese if they call in their markers.****

    Girl, I suggest you check out former President Clinton and his Vice President Al Gore if you’re gonna rant about China. Sheesh, ignorance abounds!

    Or were you born after Clinton was President?

    I’m glad your heading in this new direction. I hope the GOP leadership can finally get on board with the rest of us who truely believe in our founding fathers writings in the constitution. Your traveling around the country endorsing these true conservatives is whats needed for us. The GOP leadership I feel needs the biggest wakeup.
    I’ve been saying this about the recent elections out east with Hoffman and the other two races. It wasn’t so much about BHO, but that the people voted and even against the leadership, but about telling the leaders “WE WILL DO IT WITHOUT YOU IF NEEDED!” Newt, Michel Steele and others hopefully have seen this writting on the wall of the direction we conservatives what our elected officals to move to and support like-minded people like us.
    Even Lynsdy Grahm speaking against Ron Paul and his views now disqualify him from any leadership positions I believe. Moderates like him, throughout the Bush days have given this country the fallout we now have. Its more their fault really than the Dems that this country now sits in the hands of Marxists. Their moderations gave us the failures in the conservative direction under Bush, and the medias joy of dishing it out to the public on behalf of BHO.
    So the vote last night is their fault. We can’t support any more moderates in the Party. Getting along, comprising with them has just been a one way street. Name one time that they’ve came over to our way! We give, they take. It sure has been working for them and now we have what we have. And still no strong voice in the Parties leadership. You must lead the way in your travels. Ron Pauls message of following the constitution scares those in power. Why? It got us all this great country. Why do they then demonize you and Ron.
    McCain and his aids did such a dis-service to us all. I truely feel that they “held you down while the Dems and the media beat you up”.
    So we either need that third party or new leadership. With 2010 just around the corner, it’s time to get one or the other going.
    You go girl!!

      robert, I heard Lindsay Graham speaking ill about Rush, but I didn’t hear anything bad about Ron Paul. Are you sure about that? When was it?

    The argument goes of which Obama wants to get in touch with a demographic that wouldn’t typically vote in midterm elections with regard to the candidates performed screeching, off-key handles of Whitney Houston melodies. Wasn’t it just the other day that the media was slamming Obama for “demeaning” the office on the President of the nation by appearing on the actual Daily Show? I can’t wait to hear what the pearl-clutchers within the media have to say concerning this latest GOTV effort through the President.
