    You got that right. This win was BIGGER than Brown's win of the Kennedy seat. This NY district is smack dab in the middle of Jew-Land! Jews, for some strange reason vote democrat, I am but a very tiny exception to the American Jew! This district has belonged to the dims for 90 years or so..


    If I'm Obama, I AM very worried!


    If he loses even half of the Jew vote, he's done in NY, and he can kiss FL goodbye!

For example, there's no telling how many sentimentally Republican people have telecommuted to that region for the last several decades but who have never organized into a voting power because of assumption in Democratic superiority in the region.
    When was the last time NY 9 elected a Republican? I care about the truth but realize there is nothing we can do today about what happened during the Bush years but we can do something about the present which NY 9 voters did yesterday and about this President that has made things worse, higher unemployment, declining labor force, higher debt, and higher misery index. NY 9 seems to have gotten it and if that District went Republicans then Obama is in deed trouble in 2012. America is waking up to the reality they made a mistake in 2008

You want a viable third party then start at the grass roots level. All third party candidates run into reality, not enough to support their position.
    No, the reality for the third parties is that the Republicrats have stacked the deck against them. That's what we see. The system is scewed and broken, and on that front I put a lot of blame on McCain Fiengold amongst other things. The rules to keep out candidates are astounding and the vast majority of them should be done away with.

    Yet we are left with two options to turn the government away from the status quo; third party voting, or revolution. Thus far I've done a lot of third party campaigning. And will continue to do so. The only way to change the government is to threaten its power. So long as the Republocrats can teeter-totter off each other and return to power, they're not going to care too much about the People; which is where we are at. The only way to get them to respond is to pose a serious threat to their power.

    He is a true ideologue and I used to think he simply didn't know what he was doing but now I know he knows exctly what he is doing and the people are waking up and rejecting it. It is American to want the best for this country but what Obama is offering doesn't meet that criteria.

    More reffering to their overall popularity and legacy.

    Take Tony Blair for example, one of the best Prime Ministers Britain has ever had. But he'll always have that dark cloud of Iraq hanging over his head. And although I admire and respect him alot, the fact he went into Iraq, well I just can't forgive him or Bush for that.
    I seriously doubt that Iraq had a great deal to do with the Dems hate for Bush. They hated him ever since the day after the election of 2000. As for his legacy, I am not a seer or a psychic so I cannot tell you what his legacy will be.

    You got it. I believed he was wrong for America prior to the election of 2008 and Limbaugh was right when he wanted him to fail.

    Well there's a tune that's pulled a 180 since Bush was in office.

    Too bad the seat is probably going to be redistricted.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    No, sorry Democrats have stacked the deck as history shows that at least 43% of the public are going to vote for a Democrat regardless of the candidate and 26% Republican regardless of the candidate meaning that no third party has a chance. That is reality.

    just putting NY in play greatly changes the dynamics of the presidential race. Very expensive media market etc.
