Stillow:

Jindal has a super high approval rating.....

Well lets face it, I think the voters are so dumb in Lousiana, probably from all the incest and inbreeding and their wonderful record of high life expectancy and dropout rate. Hey, Vitter could go to New Orleans and screw two whores at the same time and he could win re-election. What ever did happen to Family Values?

Farleftandproud:

Louisiana is just about 39 percent black and that is the percentage of people who approve of him. That sounds just about what I figured. I highly doubt that has to do with the fact he is black. No, from the state that could have elected David Duke the KKK leader to high office? That is just a coincidence. Lets not forget that Bill Clinton won LA twice. Is this a coincidence or may I have a point?

Stillow:

Shhhh, just between us, Jindal is a non white....he's an Indian. Those evil southern racists voted and approve highly of a brown skinned fella............

I didn't say they wouldn't go for an Asian for statewide office; there is a moderate Republican from New Orleans who I was happy supported the first house health care bill, but a Black governor? I doubt it.

Farleft,

You continually throw out the typical far-left ideological garbage that is the predominant reason why Brown won by 7 tonight.

____________________

Farleftandproud:

Brown will get his ass kicked in 2012 because we will pick a candidate who will win, and Brown's life will be a living hell from leftist activist groups, and the state will see what a neo con he really is. He was good looking and used his attractive daughter for bait too; Coakley came across as the worst campaigner I ever saw and I am really annoyed at the people advising her. Tonight is the worst defeat I can ever remember in politics, yet I still can't understand how the state I know and love and resided for so long could make such a horrible mistake.

I grew up in Louisiana. A moderate Democrat could win in Louisiana in the past and now. A left wing demagogue of any color could never, ever win statewide. Louisiana has a fine governor now that is a great human being that I have met personally. Disagreeing with him politically or religiously does not make him a bad person. When I met him, I did not ask his race and did not know exactly what his race was. There are many creoles(people of mixed black/white ancestry) that look just like him in Louisiana. People in Louisiana are much more forgiving (i.e. Vitter)of their politicians than most people understand. They did the same for Edwin Edwards on numerous issues, a former Democratic (very popular) governor. He is in prison the last time I checked though. I love Louisiana, the land of Mardi Gras, Cajun Food, and some of the friendliest people you could ever hope to meet. The state has its problems like any other, and more than most. It does not have the problems of California though, just look at unemployment figures for each state from the BLS for comparison. The next time you pump gas into your tank you can thank a Louisiana "roughneck" (offshore oil rig worker) for being a part of the process to get it there. Like it or not, for the foreseeable future we MUST have oil to survive.

I think the Democrats better start packing their bags based on Massachusetts.

I was wrong about Mass. I admit it and will take my medicine like an adult. Too bad for Mass, too bad for the country but what is done cannot be undone.
Hopefully the House will pass the Senate health care bill. I believe I said if I was right I wouldn't talk to Stillow for a week and if I was wrong I wouldn't talk to him for two weeks. So two weeks it is. I guess being wrong is that bad after all.

I think ObamaCare is just about done now. Nothing major can pass the House vote.

They're all up for re-election in 10 short months, and they're about done sticking their necks out for Nancy and Barack.

Wouldn't surprise me to see a few more defections to GOP.

Farleftandproud,

Let me tell you a little secret about the people here in Louisiana. We couldn't give a f*** less what you left wing communists think about us.

Is this another example of that famous liberal/progressive "tolerance"? You, sir, are a disgrace.

Field Marshal:

JMS,

It doesnt count if a far-left loon is bigoted like farleft and others on this site, it only matter when a republican does it. Havent you figured that out yet?

The left is a disgrace to this country.

Yeah, the you're stupid, oh yeah you're stupider, oh yeah, you're a bigot; well you're a bigger bigot game! Hey, imagine this being stupid, a bigot, an ass is independent of party it's a "human" condition that infects parties equal.

Now that Mass. is decided, I guess we sit back and wait for the next time a party gets 60 votes in the senate for maybe something to happen. Wonder what the deficit/medicare/HC/economic/terrorism problems will look like then in a decade or two. Ah this era of no compromise is wonderful, I'll count the beginning when FL&P and FM agree on anything.

Farleftandproud:

Thank you for calling me a left wing communist, because I have more respect for real communists than I do people like David Vitter and Chuck Grassley. I often question just how affective our democracy has worked. I have been to the Netherlands, Belgium, and Greece, and see the living quarters under socialism really do make many of our decaying cities in PA, upstate, NY and Michigan look like third world countries. People are happy and I saw minimal homelessness. In Toronto Canada, I think I saw about 3 homeless people in two days. In San Diego, I saw 100's. You righties can continue attacking me, but until the American people can wake up everything will go downhill.

Farleftandproud:

Well if you think liberals are intolerant for getting into on line discussions at least I don't go to protests that have Obama dressed up as a African tribesman and push all the abortion links to the health care plan. I am so god damned tired of righties intimidating people and heckeling the president at rallies. Progressives behave ourselves. Most of the domestic terror attacks in the past 20 years have been from the far right, excluding moslem foreigners. The conservatives are so intolerant they have to spread hate publicly and carry guns far to close for the President of the US.

Xenobion:

Farleft you make me ashamed of being liberal. You call LA voters dumb rednecks that are inbreeding and you essentially fall into the trap that many conservative voters live by, by being an intolerant bigot. You need to understand why people vote the way they do even if it isn't in sync with your views. If you were as smart as you proclaim to be over these people you'd figure it out.

Farleftandproud:

Okay. I apologize for the inbred comment about Lousiana; I admit it happens a lot in VT and northern NY too, and to be honest these people rarely vote. They don't really care about any issues from my experience. I am not in any way saying that just because people are conservative they are rednecks. yet if Elliot Spitzer had not resigned in NY state, he would have been removed by now. I just think Vitter is a hypocrite for standing up for family values when is own were so messed up for so many years. I do believe that there is a lot wrong with our education system in this country because it really is hard to understand how a senator like Blanche lincoln could have been so intimidated by people in Arkansas who oppose affordable healthcare. Unlike Mass, 25 percent of people in AR, and a lot in Texas are uninsured. Here we have the greatest football stadium in the world in Dallas. It is the most high tech advanced sports arena in the world. Billions were spent on that stadium, and some of it was from taxpayers, but not everyone wants football, and it did cost taxpayers money. Yes, it will bring in some business and help the economy, but it is hard to believe that there is so much money to build the stadium yet nearly a quarter of the population are uninsured. This just doesn't make sense to me. I would rather pay higher taxes if I knew that there was healthcare security in case we lost our jobs. I think covering the uninsured is a good use of taxpayers money, and unless we are extremely rich or independently wealthy we could all face being uninsured.

I may say some harsh words but I can't help it when I see a nation making so many mistakes. I am angry at Democrats for selling their souls to big insurance, so it isn't just conservatives I am angry at.

I have news for you all about Nancy Pelosi. If she fails to get health care passed, not only will she not be leader anymore, I think she would lose to a socialist or green candidate in San Francisco. She will clearly be out of a job.
