Hampton Roads is for McDonnell. I only know a handful of people who actually take Sen. Deeds seriously.

Where's the latest birther question PPP? You guys are slipping over there.

You Dems should start working on your talking points now on why you lost the VA and NJ governorhsips this year.

I will be interested to see how you Dems losing these races are either 1. Bush's fault somehow or 2. town hall protesters.

Stillow, name me one special election this year that Republicans have one? Or did you forget that you guys were trying to make the NY-20 elections an indicator of the Rep resurgence...until Tedisco lost it. Or how about Curt Hanson in Iowa? Or the one in California. What's the narrative there?

____________________

Stillow:

What is your point? Is that the talking point? Well we won NY-20 by a razor thin margin so losing VA and NJ is no big deal?

That is it? You better hit Kos, cus you guys can come up with soemthing better than that....because your about to lose two governorships in states Obama carried.

The anti Bush mood is fading every month, bashing Bush won't win election this November or in 2010....your actually going to have to come up with soemthing other than Bush is the devil and tax and spend politics.

Stephen_W:

My point is that you said the same thing about all three special elections that Republicans LOST this year. So instead of ranting about how you're about to sweep even more elections coming up, you should probably be careful not to gloat before the votes are counted. Then again, short-term memory is a hallmark of Republicans so why should you change it now.

Stillow:

I didn't mention any of those 3 elections....as usualy Dems make up their own facts.

NY 20 for example was months ago when Obama had high numbers, now that he is down to 50 things are turning...at this pace Dems will distance themselves from him to get elected.

Bush bashing worked in 2006 and 2008, but 2009 and 2010 are a different beast.

Stillow predicted the death of healthcare reform in August. Perhaps his prediction of the two losses in VA and NJ bodes well for us Dems. If not,.. Well, we'll just quote the late great Tip O'Niell.

"All politics is local"

Stillow:

To borrow a zinger from reagan....there you go again....making stuff up as you go...I predicted the death of the public option....not reform. Sheeesh, you guys are horrible at this facts thing.

Well Stillow you never fail to disappoint. Maybe enough Ku Klux Klaner's will show up in VA for McDonnell to eek out a win. As for NJ the last republican to win a statewide race there was Christie Whitman who I would hardly call a republican other than in name (pro-choice, pro- gun control, pro gay rights, etc.). Like I have repeatedly said if your party does not learn how to win non-white voters your future is miserable. You cannot lose minority voters 5-1 election after election when they are the fastest growing population in the country and expect to maintain a winning strategy.

You just get more racist with every post don't you? The only KKK member I know of is a DEMOCRAT NAMED ROBERT BYRD.

I see you libs still have your playbook....page one, paragraph one, line one. "Whenever you lose the battle of ideas, just call the toher person a racist". Its losing its affect. This has been the oldest trick in the liberal playbook for decades. When you lose the debate, just call the toher side a name, racist, sexist, homophone, whichever one you happen to grab out of the hat for the day.

You libs are sad excuses for good Americans.

@lat

Curious, why did those evil racists in LA elected an Indian to be governor? LA is one of the most conservative states in the country located in the deep south, yet they elected an Indian? Hmmmm, strange isn't it? Perhaps its because conservatives vote based on ideas and ideaology....we don't care what color you are, we care about the values you put forth and would govern by. So why did those evil racists elect a indian?

Hmmm...and that racist evil GOP has a black man as the head of its national committe, Steele. Hmmm, interesting again isn't it? Eventually you liberals will be exposed for the racists you are, people will get tired of being judges by the color of their skin which is all you libs know how to do. Everyone to you guys is a ethnic group....conservatives don't care what you look like, its what you say and beleive that matter.

Or is the entire state of LA just color blind from to much sun? And perahps Steele is really white and no one told the GOP?
