    Maybe not Bush's undoing, but it certainly was for the GOP. Hence the results of the 06 and 08 elections.

    How about doing what is right for America and that would be supporting Israel? How about stopping with the rapid shift towards a European Socialist Model and do the will of the people? NY 9 says a lot about what is going on, wonder when his supporters wake up. This was Chuck Schumer's seat, huge Democrat District that is showing the direction of the country today as more and more Americans finally admit that this country made a mistake in voting for Obama

    NY 9 shows that people are waking up to the mistake they made in 2008. The results are there for all to see, unfortunatly not many Obama supporters even consider results in making a decision.

    Of course, the liberals here and everywhere will claim that "see, Obama's policies started working, and you kicked him out." Uh, no, things turned around in anticipation of getting his pathetic ass out of office, as well as taking over the Senate and gaining a firmer grasp on the House.

    Liberalism is being exposed to the masses for what it is. People finally understand that hope isn't a strategy.
    the best news the economy could get are the words, "Obama, your're Fired!" Obama has lost the American consumer and American business and now it is being reflected in elections. NY 9 which is overwhelmingly Democrat says it all.

    No, the "pitbull" has been beaten many times. We have no obligation to the gift at all. If Israel can't get along with its neighbors, that's its problem, not ours. We have our own problems. We have an economy that continues to tank with no sign of stopping. Our median income has fallen to below that in the early 90's. Ahh, the early 90's. God I wish we had Clinton back. And at the time, I never thought I'd ever say that. But that's the hole we're in now. We're in the "Jesus, Clinton looks like a fantastic President!" hole. Stop wasting money on foreign countries, they have to take care of themselves. Use that money for the American people. American taxpayers shouldn't have to support foreign countries.

    Perhaps I should have been more specific.

    More reffering to their overall popularity and legacy.

    Take Tony Blair for example, one of the best Prime Ministers Britain has ever had. But he'll always have that dark cloud of Iraq hanging over his head. And although I admire and respect him alot, the fact he went into Iraq, well I just can't forgive him or Bush for that.

    How did Iraq affect you or your family and what does that have to do with the thread topic? I had three family members in Iraq and still today they say we did the right thing. What do you know that they don't and why does that matter today as nothing can change the past. Obama is screwing up the present and the future and it is going to take years to undo what he has generated. Let's create a few more Solyndra's

    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.
    This is really a shocking result.

    To put it in perspective, I grew up in that district. The only election that counted was the democratic primary. Not sure if anyone can take what happens 14 months before an election as too meaningful as things can change quickly, but you had to have people who NEVER voted republican before pull that lever.

    Dude, please leave your anecdotal bull**** at the door.

    I thank your family members for their service, but just because they served, and they think it was right, doesn't make it right.

    The Republocrats have been screwing us all over for awhile now. More and more government, more aggressive government, less controlled government, government beholden to special interest and corporate interest and Wall Street interest; but not the People's interest. This ain't new, and voting for the status quo is not going to change the status quo. Putting in a Republican is not going to reverse our course or heal the Republic.
