Your support for Obama says a lot about you, you have a job so the hell with the 25 plus million that are unemployed and underemployed. NY 9 says enough is enough.
    In a district where the last Democrat had to resign in shame. It's not a shocker that Democrats didn't come out in big enough numbers to elect another Democrat. Same exact thing happened in NY-26 after a Republican seat fell to Democrats following the prior Republican resigning in shame.

    You yourself pointed a poll that showed the liberals in that district were upset Weiner resigned, Weiner supported Obama , so your analsys is a steaming pile of BS. For the most part the liberals in the district stayed home, but the conservatives didn't.

    Hey, Con, what happened to your boy from Texas? The U3 unemployment rate for the country remains flat at 9.1% but it's up in Texas. At the rate it's going, Texas will soon have an unemployment rate higher than the national average.

    Since Bush's Great Recession began, the unemployment rate for the nation has dropped from 9.5% to 9.1% -- but in Texas, it's gone up from 7.7% to 8.5% ... and it's still rising.

    Let's see, 39% JAR, 33% on the economy, a Republican took a Democrat seat for thefirst time in almost 90 years? You still cannot figure it out, not surprising. See you in Nov. 2012, then what will be your excuse?

When someone states they are going by what the exit polls indicate, why would I suspect they actually have no idea of what they're talking about and that they actually mean "media analysis?" Do you even realize the difference? Exit polling reflects the opinions of those who actually voted; whereas "media analysis" reflects the opinion of the journalists reporting it. So basically, all you are saying is that you found a journalist who blames it on Obama.
    Still waiting for a response to the top 15 welfare states since you wanted to see them and I gave them to you. Looks to me like the Democrat base is made up from these states and that is also the strategy for Obama in 2012, keep everyone so dependent on govt. that he buys their votes. A lot of Obama supporters here seem to adopt that attitude as well thus make up the 39% that support Obama today. I know what group you are in

    You should run out immediately and pick the numbers for the next lottery, you seem to be under the delusion you can foretell the future.

    Re: Republican wins Democratic New York House seat

    Its funny that even though Dem pundits and elected officials across the country are exprerssing concern over Obama...people here just think its silly that there is a cause for concern. Well..OK..

    "In my district, the enthusiasm for him has mostly evaporated," said Representative Peter A. DeFazio, Democrat of Oregon. "There is tremendous discontent with his direction."

    "a survey of two dozen Democratic officials found a palpable sense of concern that transcended a single week of ups and downs."

    "The frustrations are real," said Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, who was the state chairman of Mr. Obama's campaign four years ago. "I think we know that there is a Barack Obama that's deep in there, but he's got to synchronize it with passion and principles."

    From the HuPo...
    “Senior Democrats are now very concerned about Obama's reelection chances according to the New York Times.
    Soem are even suggesting he should emulate LBJ and not run.

    I would have thought that Pb would have heard about DeFazio's statement as Oregon isn't that big. My bet is Pb didn't want to hear it thus didn't. It is amazing what loyalty some here have for Obama, almost like it is an act

    Yet.

    (2012 Presidential Matchups Obama 46%, Perry 39% (Rasmussen September 15, 2011 | Rasmussen )

    who do the republicans have that can beat him?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
