    You can't have your cake and eat it too. If "Obama wasn't on the ballot" how did people vote against him? You're saying that the election was about someone who wasn't on the ballot. Even though it wasn't 10 months ago in the same district.

    Yes it is. It goes to the video I posted that nobody commented on. This district voted (D) instinctively. It wasn't something they even thought about. It just was. For 90 years. Now they didn't care for the Weiner fiasco being who they are and that certainly hurt but when the race started they were still behind Weprin. As the election progressed and Turner was successful in his campaign to note that Obama really wasn't much of a supporter of Isreal, the numbers started to turn.

    My video starts off with Weprin up 6%. As we know, Turner won by 8%. That 14 point swing can reasonably be placed in Obama's lap. The video notes that even though the precinct voted (D) for 90 years, they didn't care much for Obama.

    So what? NY-26 has been Republican for 138 of the last 154 years and it went to a Democrat in a special election after the last Republican resigned in shame. That's no different than what happened in NY-1.

    Which is true, just like Obama inherited a recession. The Clinton recession ended in Nov. 2001 and the Bush recession ended in June 2009 so what is your point. Both inherited recession. We are 2 1/2 years later and there are more unemployed today than when Obama took office, fewer people working, a declining labor force, a rising misery index. Compare that to two years after the Clinton recession ended.

    Right, the Republican resigned in shame and yet NY 9 voted against Obama, more and more are going to do that so get used to it. "Your " President is incompetent and over his head. NY 9 elected a Republican for the first time in almost 90 years.

    Clinton got blamed for all sorts of things throughout the Bush Presidency. You were even given one from nearly 8 years into his tenure.

    The Republican in an upstate district resigned in shame, therefore people in Queens voted against Obama, who wasn't on the ballot?
