    Tea partiers don't do those things either. They just want their taxes (and no one else's) taxes lowered, but their benefits (and no one else's) protected. And to keep gays and atheists from being full citizens. They love Christianity as a label, without actually being Christ-like.

They liked him in 2008 but now realize they had a different definition of Hope and Change than Obama has.
    When Obama was running for office and people were running around shouting "Hope and Change" and all that nonsense, I told them that he's a Chicago politician and you shouldn't trust him. In the end he'll be almost exactly like Bush I told them. And lo and behold, it turns out I was right. Bush II.

    Other than whining about another poster - do you have any comment on the Bob Turner win or Weprin loss? Perhaps an analysis of the campaign and strategy used?
    I didn't follow the campaign, I understand Weprin was a piss poor candidate. He was asked what the national debt was on TV and his answer was $4 trillion. Politics are local and I don't see where this affects Obama who likely will win reelection.

    What are you talking about? President Obama is not the GOP's candidate.

    No. We're under the impression that he's in over his head big time.

    I see that you have been here since December of 2006. Can you point us to a thread where you made these comments?

    NY 9 is 4-1 Democrat over Republican and the Republican won by a 54-46 margin and that speaks volumes. The best you can do is say he wasn't a good candidate? This District hasn't elected a Republican since I believe 1921 so during that time I guess all the Democrat Candidates were excellent. My bet is that the D after the name meant more than the candidate. Today those with a D better find a way to disguise it. Obama will be on the ballot in 2012 and this leftwing partisan ideologue is out of touch with the majority in this country including many who voted for him. Results matter even in a 4-1 Democrat district

    Although the jewish vote is crucial in this district, I would think it is foolish to take it as a bellweather. For the record, I don't really have a horse in the dem v rep race.

    While the true believers cling to the "Barrack the magic Negro" savior of the universe hype, more and more people (including democrats that voted for him) recognize that not only is he not sitting on the magic fix the economy button, but that he is so clueless he wouldnt recognize it if it was rigid, 8" long, and he was sitting on it.

    No. First off, it's digging through years of stuff to get to. How far back does the database on posts go? Secondly, not everything I say is said exclusively on DP. If posts from a few years ago are still around, you are more than free to search them.
