Thanks for the bad news- heartbreaking. Most disappointing loss of the night because unlike Aiken, etc. it was 100% undeserved.
The RACIST party won
West needs to run on the next race avail in Florida, I wanna see him run in 2016
And with Mia’s loss, two more brave Conservative blacks have been taken down. How dare they leave the liberal plantation.
My heart grieves, he is the one honest, good, decent, “black man” running. I pray for him and his family.
not a good night.
what in the he** is wrong with the people in FLorida? West is a good man and we needed him in the House. I’ll bet the RINOs are happy.
Can’t say he wasn’t combative enough. I wonder if he would have been better-served by focusing on the economy.
The most disgusting revelation tonight.
A patriotic man with years of military service lost to a pathetic drunk.
The people of this district should be ASHAMED.
He was targeted for redistricting
Well..he is now free to devote himself to 2016....he has the leadership skills, he has the right ideology, and with another 4 years of Obama there should be a target rich environment for him to attack any democrat who much seek to assume Barry’s mantle - that is provided Barry wants to give up the gig by 2016....if he’s packed the SCOTUS with his stooges he can almost do anything he wants...
the rats stole every election tonight....every one....
so sorry Col West....you deserved better than this stinking country...
That’s a shame.
Ultimately I think most of these lost Congressional races come down to Obama coattails. Obama turns out the kind of low-information voters who don’t pay attention, probably never heard of the candidates running, and just vote for all the D’s under Obama’s name on the ballot. West should come back in 2 years and try to win the seat back.
CNN has Michele Bachmann up by 2,000 votes in a 50/50 result.
I’m just sorry that West risked his life defending the gutless, lazy majority of this sinking ship. Waste of time, Allen.
Remember, the Dems sliced up his district to put more of their people. It was almost expected he would lose. Just damn. And I really hate that Mia Love lost.
Until then he would be a great replacement (NOT sub) for Ted Baxter.
Vernon Parker narrowly defeated apparently in Arizona as well to a Dem candidate that calls herself openly a socialist and participated in a communist party newsletter...this was highlighted in ads run by the NRCC but they elected her anyway, it appears.
the fix was in. blacks can’t speak against a brutha without getting whacked
Disgusting! I love Americans like Allen West — we have officially tilted into a country of takers — helots.
Mia Love and Allen West both lost? Mia Love... a Republican in UTAH. Lost??
OMG... what the hell is going on?
Romney not only reelected Obama, he lost the Senate,ruined the “down ticket”, West, Mia Love, Brown.
Thanks very much for posting. I’m a great admirer of Allen West, a true American hero, have his image posted on my FR profile page. I wouldn’t have been aware of this for a long time had you not posted it. I am shocked, terribly disappointed by the news. It’s been a terrible, terrible night, politically.
How is it possible that Mia Love - a Republican in freakin' UTAH - lost this race? Last I heard (recently), she was double digits over Matheson.
Anybody know how Rep. Steve King of Iowa did? He's a good guy and we've contributed to his campaign... hope he won.
It's gonna take me a long time to get over this awful, awful night...
Frankly, this election SMELLS....I think we got ALINSKIED, and maybe there was some major FRAUD...sophisticated, from the TOP fraud....
Like I said....something SMELLS about this election...
Not to be melodramatic, because I thought this way before the election, but America has been pornographized, liberalized, to the core, there is no going back. Conservatism is dead, it will not rise again, period. We’ll save their asses when armegeddon comes, but of course that’ll be all God’s power, through us, undeserved.
Both Republican congressmen (Bass & Guntia) have lost in NH to 2 female moonbats.
Iowa 4th District
R Winner S. King (i) 53.2% 197,873
D C. Vilsack 44.6% 165,932
I M. Monroe 2.1% 7,836
Happy King won.
Bachmann’s lead has be cut to less than 700 votes. 47 precincts remain.
the stupid 50% of the American electorate and the media is where to aim your anger.. it wasn’t Mitt Romney’s fault 98 percent of the media were busy 24/7 campaigning for Obama and his Rat Congress for the last 5 years..
the rats stuffed the ballot box, hello
God bless, Lt Col West and thank you for your service. America has lost much. Sad, very sad.
no retard, the thing was stolen
This election was way worse than I could have anticipated. The pessimist in me was prepared for an Obama win, but I did not see such a disaster as was this election. Obama won every swing state.
Of course it was stolen. And the guy our side sent into the battle capitulated before it was even over. At least we didn’t have to wait to be disappointed by Romney.
THEY STUFFED THE BALLOT BOX DON’T YOU SEE? ALL THE RACES WE WERE SUPPOSED TO WIN WE LOST, GET IT?
No Romney atually did well, the election was almost a tie they cheated at least that is what I think. Did you really think Obama was going to go just remember what he said 4 years ago the night he was elected:
“WE are the ones we have been waiting for” what do you think he meant by that. I hate Obama don’t blame Romney
Romney despised Reagan, despises conservatives, and actually left the republican party because of Reagan.
Romney is anti-conservative, and he deserves the blame of what his 20 years of effort, and 50 millions dollars of his personal funds, did to America.
Are they sure we still hold the house?
It would be nice to ditch Boehner. Wothless piece of chit.
But the Unpublicans kept him as their leader, tells ya something, eh?
Doesn’t matter if they’re R or D...we aren’t playing on the same team.
I agree absolutely 100 percent. How is it that the presidential was declared so early and quickly? It stinks like yesterday's diapers.
Sooner or later Americans are going to have to face down being overcome by "elected" authority they never elected.
The libertarian candidate made Mia Love lose.
Steve is a good man... there are so few of them left. God bless him.
“Romney is anti-conservative, and he deserves the blame of what his 20 years of effort, and 50 millions dollars of his personal funds, did to America.”
But West lost. A Republican is a Republican is a Republican. Doesn’t matter if he’s a RINO or the best conservative out there. The Dems will always find a way to get someone even more liberal.
