Democrats had made serious, but unsuccessful, attempts to gain the seat with self-financed candidate Jack Davis in 2004 and 2006 as well as Alice Kryzan in 2008, but nominated only token opposition in 2010 when Philip Fedele ran.




    Hmmm...looks like a Democrat won a seat in a traditionally GOP district, and was so for 40 years. Just another referendum on Obama, huh?

    Thanks for posting links that show you only read the headlines. Hochui got 52,713 votes and her opponents got 58,884 so again here is an other example of where the Tea Party and the Republicans divided the vote giving the election to an Obama Democrat. Unless I am wrong opponents of Obama won the District so how is that no a referendum against Obama?

    Right about the time you get that NY-9 wasn't about Obama.

President Obama has much going for him and in fact said just the other day his chances of winning in 2012 are better than the were in 2008.
    It continues to amaze me the loyalty Obama supporters have to his failed economic agenda which to me shows that it really isn't about compassion on the part of liberals, it is all about changing this country towards a European socialist model that supporters don't believe will affect them. When they find out it will be too late. Typical liberal spin that now it won't be about unemployment and the economy which of course flies in the face of Obama JAR and the results in NY 9

    TacticalEvilDan;1059804964]Both parties are just as dependent on buying votes -- they only differ in their constituency.
    Right, Conservatives buy votes by allowing people to keep their own money whereas liberals redistribute money from the producers to the non producers.

    Sort of like all that government money that goes out to defense contractors, farmers, bankers, and so on.
    That is what I keep hearing except that Wall Street and the Bankers gave more to Obama in 2008 than to McCain.


    No, it's all about how he spins it, just like the Republican's primary opportunity to win is spinning his record in the opposite direction. They don't have a concrete plan for getting us out of this mess any more than the
    President does. Everybody in Washington is playing musical chairs -- they keep running around and around and around the core issues, and their only hope is that when the music stops, their ass will be in a seat. Their first concern isn't fixing anything.
    The campaign hasn't even begun as there are too many Republican candidates and yet even with that number Obama isn't over 50% on the top tier candidates. People are paying attention to the Obama record and that is what will be on the ballot in 2012. NY 9 got it, wonder when the Obama supporters will get it?


    Where's the Republican plan to get us out of this? Which of the field of Presidential candidates have presented any specifics?
    It doesn't matter which one because one of them will be the candidate and one will beat Obama. they will run on his record and it is going to be the dirtiest race in U.S. History as those dependent on Obama and someone else will be fighting like hell to keep their gravy train going.

    Are you telling me that the majority vote didn't go against the Obama candidate? You look at the bottomline and make the determination that this was a referendum for Obama when both the Republican and T.E.A. Party Candidate ran against him. The majority in the District voted against the Obama agenda and he only way Obama wins is with a third party candidate on the ballot. Happened in both NY 23 and NY 26.

    If that is what you want to believe, so be it, nothing is going to change your mind including media discussions with people in the District and the fact that Turner ran against the Obama record and won.

    Yep, there's no other reason a Republican could ever lose.....just like Nader is the only reason Gore could have lost.

    When you gave them your capacity for independent thought, did the Republicans at least pay you well?

    Oh, if only that were true -- but it's not.

    Way to respond to only part of what I said.

    So, in other words, there are no specifics or plans from the Republicans, so all they've got is slinging mud at Obama. Got it.

    Wow, you're seriously arguing that a win was in fact a loss. Unbelievable.

    I've listed several specific reasons why the Democrat lost that race. You retort is that the media says it (even though that's hypocrisy coming from you), the loser said it (when of course he'd blame anyone other than himself) and the winner said it (when of course he wants to frame the victory as one against the most powerful man in American politics, rather than a win over a complete idiot).

    Weak.
