    Senate was controlled by the Democrats in 2001-2002, GOP Controlled Congress 2003-2006 and I will take those results all day long, in case you missed them which I know you have, bls.gov and bea.gov have those numbers for you.

    Both parties have proven they're equally capable of electing people who are either utterly incompetent or so ambitious that they'll do just about anything to get and keep the job.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

I also reject Schumer's half-assed explanation about how conservative the district has been getting over the past decades, mainly because it kept electing a Democrat. This was about local politics and nothing but local politics.

    I don't know about any of you, I noticed that Weprin took certain positions which left him very vulnerable in a district full of conservative Jews:
    • He supported the Park15 project -- the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque."
    • He voted for the legalization of gay marriage in New York.
    • He wasn't particularly effective at attacking his opponent or addressing his opponent's attacks.
    • He pissed off some local interest groups with gestures as thoughtless as, well, not showing up to talk to them.
    Summation, for all you tl;drers -- this was an election lost by an idiot because of local politics. It was nothing more or less than that.

    I realize that the national media (and, heck, let's throw Fox News in there) didn't have a whole lot to say about these another salient facts in the wake of Turner's victory, but that doesn't make them any less true, or this referendum crap any less false.

    I now return you to your regularly scheduled baseless posturing.
    Now that is incredible spin, thanks for the good laugh today. Fact, GOP won the seat for the first time in almost 90 years. Seems the media disagrees with you in that one candidate ran on support for the Obama agenda and the other against that agenda. Guess which one won?

    You'll ignore even the most obvious facts in order to feel like a winner, won't you?

    Listen folks, I live in the 9th District. Weprin ran a half-assed, unmotivated, uninvolved campaign. He failed to focus on the economic times and the ridiculous positions of Turner. He skipped out on planned meetings, he failed to squash the utter lunacy of turning the election into a referendum on international affairs, and he simply failed to show any great interest in winning. So......he lost.

    I predict a stronger, more committed, more focused Democratic candidate will easily win back the seat for the Democrats in 2012...if the seat even exists after redistricting.

    Hey, look at that! Someone who lives in the district pretty much saying what I just said after doing some reading and critical thinking! It's almost as if the Republican party and the mainstream had absolutely no idea what the **** they're talking about!

    Why do you or anyone else have a problem understanding that Obama has been a disaster as the actual results show and this election was a referendum against Obama especially with his Israel Policy? The economy is bad enough but his foreign affairs policy is almost as bad. Those that voted for Obama just cannot admit when wrong.

    I guess you missed the part where the guy who actually lives in that district explained how you, the Republican party and the mainstream media have no idea what you're talking about.
