Election Results

Obama Administration

New Yorkers gave liberalism a resounding yes and elected Bill de Blasio mayor of New York. Or, as I have come to think of the office after many hours of riding the subways and reading the announcements out of boredom, el Alcalde de la Ciudad de Nueva York. It sounds better in Spanish.

New York activist lefties to begin complaining about de Blasio selling them out in 5 … 4… 3… 2…

Chris Christie won another term in New Jersey. According to a local television news story I saw yesterday, the state Democratic Party didn’t bother to crank up its GOTV machine for the Dem candidate, Barbara Buono. Buono has accused the NJ Dem establishment of “making a deal” with Christie. From what I know of the NJ Democrats, that is very plausible.

Terry McAuliffe won in Virginia by a slightly smaller margin than had been predicted. This result is being spun into a public referendum vote against Obamacare.

    ..and the Tea Party guy LOST in Alabama. His solid, establishment Republican opponent won by 5 pts. There is hope in the world.

    And, the appropriately named EW Jackson also lost in VA.

    But what scares me, is that he only lost by such a small margin.

    That loon made Cooch look like Robert Marion “Fighting Bob” La Follette, Sr.!!!

    Hoping the GOP is too impaired to nominate Christie in 2016. Pretty sure they are.

    As Steve Benen pointed out this morning, if the Virginia election was a referendum on ObamaCare, ObamaCare won. There’s no silver medal in a yes or no vote.

    Of course, I’m happy to let the Republicans believe what they want. If ObamaCare did bring down McAuliffe’s numbers, they should really feel terrified rather than vindicated. Assuming the problems are worked out, healthcare.gov won’t be such a burning issue a year from now, but right-wing extremism doesn’t appear to be going anywhere.

    “Terry McAuliffe won in Virginia by a slightly smaller margin than had been predicted. This result is being spun into a public referendum vote against Obamacare.”
    Well I would think the fact that McAuliffe won by less than ten percent is a clear indication that president Obama has failed and should resign immediately!
    For all the talk about what a wonderful Pol Christie is he sure can’t give much of a speech, his acceptance drool last night was hard to watch, his constant stare into the camera was awkward at best, Hillary will mop the floor with his considerable ass!

    CUND, yeah scary. The dimwitted baggers will vote for anyone up to and including Joseph Goebbels as long as he does not have a D next to his moniker!

    Well, the Dems didn’t fare too well in the Garden State, but they had good solid victories in the Empire State and the Vaginal Probe State.

    One of my right wing friends is outraged over the results. So, Robert Sarvis, the Libertarian party candidate, became the “Libertarian” candidate, i.e. a shill Democrat meant to syphon votes away from Cuccinelli. This leaves the referendum on “Obamacare” meme intact and tops up the vitriol at the deceitful Dems.

    It’s “twofer.”
