    Re: Republican wins Democratic New York House seat

    So a GOP guy won over a Democratic guy in a district where they were fighting to replace a Democrat who showed the whole world his private parts....

    So when Mark Foley was caught chasing boys... the GOP won his seat in the next election... right? I bet that if you look at seats that have had a guy in a sex scandal, a large portion of those seats went to the other party at the next election...

    Now if this seat stays in GOP hands at the next election, then yes it is a shock.

    There will be no next election...this seat will be abolished in about a year and a half because redistricting eliminated it....so its not much benefit to the gop in the long run...but it does have psyche value right now being its been a dem seat forever

    Schumer's old seat I believe....Although I am not surprised the libs, and stealth libs in here are downplaying the victory, it is what political parties do, however I can assure everyone that the WH is not downplaying it today when in their private meetings. They are ****ting themselves.

    Are you advocating that President Obama give up his principles to pander to the Jewish vote?

    So far his track record on changing what isn't working isn't real good. I don't see Obama making any major flops on position here.

    I whole heartedly endorse the down playing, hell even outright ignoring of this election, and the one in Nev as well....Heck, to all libs out there just keep whistling.

    While I think one can read it too much to two district elections such as these, the idea that the NY district went GOP should be a sobering matter for the Democrtic Party. That is a district they never should have lost.

    It pretty much underlines by belief that President Obama should announce before the holidays that he is NOT running for re-election and will devote his final year to the economy without the attendant political circus surrouning any re-election effort. This would give Hilary Clinton time to get a national campaign together and re-energize the Democratic Party placing them in a stronger position in 2012.
