    Congressional elections should be about national and local politics. Providing for the needs of the district electorate. NOT international affairs.

    Turning a local election into solely a referendum on national foreign policy is unAmerican and unpatriotic.

    Ed Koch, Dov Hikind, and Bob Turner should be ashamed of themselves.

    Too bad your purpose isn't the truth.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    Um, what should President Obama have done that "benefits the Jewish community and their love for Israel?"

    Really? Is that what you learned the role of the Federal Govt. was, to provide for your District? Suggest going back and getting a civics lesson. Congress shouldn't be about bringing home the bacon but instead should be about doing what is right for the country. Your local community govt. has civic responsibilities.

    LOL, my posts are the truth, but a true Obama supporter is never going to admit that "their" President is in trouble. For some reason they just cannot admit it. Too many people like Thunder believe it is the Federal Government's role to provide for local needs instead of Federal Govt. responsibility to provide for national needs like security and defense. Congressional races should always be about national issues but liberals have brainwashed so many into believing it is about "bringing home the bacon."

    do me a favor and do not lie about my beliefs. The Federal govt. has the responsibility to provide for local AND national needs.

    however, turning a local election PURELY into a referendum on national foreign policy, is unpatriotic and unAmerican.

    LOL, my posts are the truth, but a mindless Republican waterboy is never going to admit that this wasn't about the President being in trouble. For some reason, they just cannot see the hypocrisy in taking the media's word for it this time, when every other time they whine and moan about how the media can't be trusted to report the truth. Congressional races should always be about the district, but Conservative would like us to believe it's all about referendums.

    Do you pay local and state taxes? If so what for? It isn't the Federal Government's role to provide for your local needs unless it relates to defense and natural disasters. Show me in the U.S. Consititution that requirement?

    Why wouldn't it be about Obama? 25 million plus unemployed and under employed Americans, declining labor force, 4 trillion added to the debt, increasing misery index, lack of leadership in the world, meager economic growth, and turning our backs on our best ally in the Middle East!

    If you understood NY9, then you would not be saying there was a local issue here. This is a district that is conditioned to just pull the D level without a thought. Many years there isn't even a Republican opponent there.
