    and so were NY-23 and NY-26 Safe Republican districts so several years that turned Democrat. Seems to me that if there IS any referendum its an anti-incumbent referendum that doesn't speak well for the Republicans holding the house if in fact that is the referendum.

    John Stewart is sadly the best political commentator we have. Sad because he's essentially a comedian, but conducts himself with a level of intellectual honesty and fairness not found in many other places.

    Make of that as you will.

    Non-Orthodox Jews are driven in many ways by social issues and the group identities that go with them. The Jews of NY-9 support gay marriage by only a 45-43% margin, with an Orthodox rabbi being featured in robocalls sponsored by the National Organization for Marriage. Nationally, Jews overall support gay marriage by a 75-18% margin, a result Pew found to be more lopsided than any demographic except atheists.

    I must have missed where Stewart posted officials from the Bush Administration blaming Clinton because all I saw were Hannity, Barnes, Buchannan, McCain, and others but no Administration officials blaming Clinton so to claim he nailed it is total and complete BS. I could put together quite a video on leftwing nuts and their attacks on Bush and acceptance of the Obama rhetoric who by the way has talked constantly about inheriting a mess. Incredible! You have to do better than that, including explaining how NY 9 elected the first Republican in almost 90 years to the House. Liberalism sure creates cult followers.

    So let me see if I have this right, the left here is claiming that this wasn't a referrendum on Obama but point out Obama's policies against Israel? Looks to me like you are making the case of exactly what it is, an anti Obama vote.

    Intellectual honesty? Bush takes over the economy in January 2001 and we go into a recession in March. What economic policy did Bush have in place to put the economy into recession in less than 2 months? Then there was 9/11 which I believe the 9/11 Commission absolved Bush of responsibility and no one here can provide evidence that Bush could have done anything to prevent it. This was a total and complete dishonest presentation void of Bush Administration officials blaming Clinton but the Obama cult here jumps on anything to try and justify their support for the incompetent in the WH. NY 9 got it, when will you, Pb, and others?

    Jon Stewart is a genius.

    Seriously....the same people that want to absolve GWB from the economic mess he led this country into .....are the same ones that try to argue that 911 was Clinton's fault although it ocurred almost a year into GWB's presidency. LOL.....you gotta love the Bush apologists.

    I know, I forgot, but I really enjoyed Elizabeth Shue in that move and thought she should have been on the poster.
