http://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...k-house-seat/2011/09/13/gIQAoos5QK_print.html 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!
