    I am both amazed and excited over the news that the seat once held by that rabid liberal Anthony Weiner will now be solidly Republican. You can call this a fluke if you want, or just one district that happened to be unhappy with the state of politics in this country, but I see it as much more. First off this particular congressional district has never sent a Republican to the house before, and the last 7 terms Anthony Weiner was their choice for Congressional representation who is as liberal as they come. This district was won by Obama in 2008 by 11 percentage points, but today his approval rating there is 33%. When it comes to registration by party democrats outnumber Republicans 3 to 1, and the democrat candidate on paper seemed to fit the bill quite well in that his background and family history nearly mirrored the constituency of this heavily Jewish district. Every statistic and demographic makeup of this area would lead you to believe a democrat is the only candidate who can win there, but that is not what happened. These facts could not overcome a bad economy, a lack of leadership in Washington, and a largely demoralized democratic base. The future of this country looks slightly brighter if this means the festering bot fly currently occupying the white house will receive the collective thumbs down from this nation next November. Next years election season is looking like it will be a truly exciting one, and I can't wait for it to arrive!

    I wouldn't call it a fluke, but I wouldn't want to bet that the next election will prove out the same results.

    A traditionally democrat held seat in Nevada also went to a republican yesterday.

    Difficult to win? How could that be with 3 to 1 registered doms to repubs? Unless most of those 3 have been dead over 20 years.

    It is the democrat's job today to play down the 2 wins........I would love to hear D.W.S. on this topic. I could use a good laugh!!

    Since the Republican wins in 2010, the Dems have tried to portray GOP as party of 'no'.........I think the people know the real story of trying to stop wild spending by drawing the line. These 2 results (NV & NY), show they want someone to control the spending in DC.

    [h=2]DNC Chief Wasserman Schultz On Dem Loss Of Weiner’s NY Seat: “It’s a Very Difficult District For Democrats” – Reality: Seat Has Been In Dem Hands Since 1922…[/h]
    Via WSJ:
    Democratic party leaders insisted the loss wasn’t a harbinger of things to come. “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats,” said Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City.

    Smart move putting this one in charge of the party.
    She continues to show the party's weakest side.
    Of no leadership from the top or anywhere else.

    So the dems thought they had a ringer by puting in a Jewish canidate but even the Jews saw thru the smoke and mirrors on how the Messiah has treated Israel. The Republican that ran has no political experience and he still won huge. The Hope and Change is wearing off., and the Obama kool-aid tap is starting to run dry.

    Rumors about Obama and his former Chief of Staff Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel having lifetime memberships at the same gay bathhouse in uptown Chicago keep getting easier to believe.
    Liberals considered it appropriate to make this guy Commander in Chief of the American Armed Forces.

    [h=1]A Pair Of (Nobel) Aces[/h]
    Failed Policy: The Nobel Prize for Economics goes to two Americans who have separately exposed the flaws in government stimulus spending. For a Keynesian president, it's the Anti-Peace Prize.
    Thomas Sargent of New York University and Princeton's Christopher Sims, whose macroeconomics work has been of invaluable help to central bankers and other economic policymakers, and for which they now share this year's economics Nobel.
    Sargent's discoveries in particular echo the rationale Republican leaders in Congress have presented in opposing the massive Democratic stimulus spending during the first two years of the Obama administration — that such spending seeks to give the economy nothing more than what House Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan over the weekend aptly called a "sugar high."

    As the New York Sun pointed out Monday, Sargent has also criticized Obama's stimulus policies specifically. It pointed to an interview a year ago in which he called the calculations of the Obama Council of Economic Advisers "surprisingly naive for 2009."
    According to Sargent, "They were not informed by what we learned after 1945" regarding fiscal policy. He suspected the council "was asked to do something quickly, and they did what they thought was 'good enough for government work,' as some of us said during my days at the Pentagon."
    On high unemployment and a possible double dip, Sargent told Business Week that Washington risks breaking its benefits contracts. He said "it's not clear which of the incredible promises are going to be broken first."

    While Sims might not be quite as outspoken a critic of Obamanomics as Sargent, at a 2004 Federal Reserve Bank of Boston conference, he selectively criticized Alan Blinder, economic adviser to Bill Clinton, Al Gore and John Kerry. On using stimulus spending to counteract economic downturns Sims said Blinder overlooks the debt-driven "inter-generationally unfair crowding out" that a massive stimulus can cause.

    All in all, the judges honored economists who've shown what the public knows well: Obamanomics is a failure.

    69% Oppose In-State Tuition To Illegal Aliens (Even 54% of Hispanics are “Heartless”)
    By John Hill
    Party and ideological divisions are roiling America.
    Battles over the budget, taxes, jobs and energy have crippled Washington.
    But there is one issue that people across the political spectrum agree on: they oppose giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens.

    According to the latest poll numbers, 69% of Americans oppose subsidizing those here illegally with in-state tuitions rates.
    73% of Republicans oppose it – as one would expect.
    An even stronger 74% of Independents oppose it.
    But the same position resonates across ideological and ethnic lines too.
    58% of Democrats oppose it too, as do an overwhelming 90% of Black Americans.

    And contrary to media propaganda, even HISPANICS are “heartless“, opposing in-state tuition for illegals, by 54%-28%
