    How you doing on cleaning up that California mess and getting the unemployment rate under 12%. You seem content on supporting Obama regardless of the results and that doesn't give you a lot of credibility.

    So let's see, the Republicans gain 65 seats in November 2010 and another this week and you point out NY 23 and 26? Wow, a true cult follower

    Where were you referring to the Obama Administration? Or is this just something that you're going to apply only to the Democrat side, but not your own?

    More on topic of this thread, would you mind comment on this?

    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.

    Obama is sill blaming Bush for the "mess" he inherited so do you have something of value to add? Political pundits say and do a lot of things but the attacks on Bush came from Obama officials. Stewart posted NONE from Bush Administration

    So was NY 9 a referrendum against Obama or not? Make up your mind. Amazing that this District hasn't voted for a Republican in almost 90 years so what changed?

    No, you wrong, it's about NY-9 having Orthodox Jews who beyond anything else support Israel more than anything else. They don't represent the Jewish vote, who for the most part are liberal, in America. Your punditry sucks.

    No....I am pointing out the fallacy in your logic. You want to believe that a Democratic seat turning Republican is a referendum, yet fail to address how two very safe Republican seats turning democrat is not also a "referendum". Once again, simply pointing out the hypocracy that you engage in day in and day out.

    Wh-wh-wh-what?

    So by your logic, Bush was responsible for 911 right? Or are you in the blame Clinton camp?
