    Democrats downplay election losses as GOP celebrates

    Democrats downplay election losses as GOP celebrates --

    What's this" And from a Liberal Obamedia Source too.

    The White House this morning minimized the meaning of Republicans' off-year election victories Tuesday night, saying that the results did not reflect on President Obama.

    White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that the election of Republicans to the governorships in Virginia and New Jersey was based on "very local issues that didn't involve the president."

    Gibbs said voters were concerned about the economy. "I don't think the president needed an election or an exit poll to come to that conclusion," he said.

    Republicans won the governor seats, but Democrats, who spent much of election day distancing themselves from the outcomes, can claim a victory in an upstate New York congressional election. With Obama's help, a conservative Democrat was elected from a conservative district that rejected an even more conservative candidate.

    Republicans, of course, were cheered this morning but cautious.
    The key phrase here is "Republicans, of course, were cheered this morning but cautious", as weel the y should be. Now is not the time to let up the push to end the attempted Socialist/Communist take over. We still have to stop this "I Don't Care About Yoyr Health Plan" from passing.
    Even now we see things like; Pelosi dismisses Dem losses in Virginia and New Jersey Which like many post on this site is a way to try to obfuscate the facts.
    It would be easy to blame the mess we are headed into on Obama alone but I blame the School system for not teaching the values and standards of freedom this Nation was founded on and the members of the GOP who strayed from Conservative principles and allowed the fear tactics of G.W. Bush and Chaney to cloud the issues and take us in directions we should never have done.
    It's time to refocus on what's important and that does not include take over of all private ownership of business bt Government appointees who have an agenda to destroy the Country and refashion it in a Marxist mold.

    Neither Dems nor conservatives should be cheering very loudly.

    Interesting quote from Rham Emmanuel from 2005 when Corzine and Kaine won NJ and VA.

    Democratic House campaign committee chair Rahm Emanuel, calling First Read immediately after Kaine's and Corzine's victories were announced, argued that it's clear Democratic voters were already energized earlier in the year when Democrat Paul Hackett nearly won a traditionally GOP-leaning Ohio House district. "I think that's even more true today." He also pointed out that the mayors of Detroit, Cleveland, and St. Paul, MN were all losing. "A lot of incumbents are losing to change," he said (although he neglected to mention that these three mayors are Democrats, though the one from St. Paul endorsed Bush last year).

    But let's not make too much of this... no celebrating...
