    Do you think a republican in New York is the same as one in Texas?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This does not bode well for Obama...if the jews abandon him...they are some of his staunchest supporters and donors. I am ALL FOR total support of Israel.

    Republican wins Democratic New York House seat - The Washington Post


    Bob Turner, the winner, cast the election as a referendum on Obama’s stewardship of the economy and, in the state’s Ninth Congressional District, which has a large population of Orthodox Jewish voters, the president’s position on Israel.
    I wonder how many lefties are pissed off about this but they shouldn't be.. it's all Obama's fault not Bush.
    Catch me if you can.

    What the hell are you talking about? I honestly have no idea how this would be Obama or Bush's fault?

    No different than a Democrat in TX vs. one in NY. What does that have to do with the fact that NY 9 hasn't elected a Republican since the early 20's and elected one yesterday? This was Chuck Schumer's former seat. Think about it. I posted the issues and those issues went right after Obama and the Republican won. That speaks volumes.

    I agree that couldn't be Obama's fault .. . after all I remember him throwing out a first pitch …. he throws like a girl, and couldn't even get it to home plate …

    Well...that might be a LITTLE disingenuous. It may not be Obamas fault or even say anything at all about him. But...for a traditionally overwhelmingly democrat district to elect a republican...well...it says SOMETHING. could be weiner shame. Could just be the republican was the bette candidate. But it could indicate a trend.

    I still believe Obama will be reelected. But I am starting to see a 2004 type scenario blooming.

    Obama won in 2008 with 52% of the vote. Today his job approval rating is around 40%, what happened to those 12% that voted for him in 2008?

    I don't believe I have suggested any such silly theory. Well, I guess I did tell them to wash their brain. LOL!

    The district is heavily Jewish and Obama has not been to nice to Israel and the way he treated Benjamin Netanyahu and Jewish people don't forget.
