Didn’t the GOP destroy his district?
In before Obama complains about the mess he inherited!
Either way he was going to be in a hotly contested race....not liking the way we got kicked around last night. Demonrats are swimming in their giddyness.
Be careful what you wish for....higher unemployment and more taxes on the way for you.
Opps, wrong thread. The world really is upside down today.
Yup. From January:
This has not received a lot of national attention, but the Republican legislature in Florida is about to push through a plan which puts Allen West at serious risk, and the person leading the effort is one of Mitt Romneys spokemen.
Why, yes, they certainly did. Wasserman-Schultz put her little puppet up against West, with the help of the GOP, she succeeded.
That was the other knife to the gut last night.
The world has gone mad.
Mia Love lost her race also(Utah). She was up by double digits 2 days ago.
Unfortunate. I really liked Col. West. I wish him well wherever he goes and whatever he does.
Maybe if the US becomes a republic again, he can run for President.
I don't see any cheering on FR, so I assume she was.
Being that her mug was on the news this morning, my guess is she’s still in.
Wow. Just wow. Very sad about West.
Meh. His voting record never matched his rhetoric anyway..
And here everyone thought the GOP would back a conservative. The conservatives are nothing but an annoyance to the GOP, only getting in the way of them sucking up to the leftists to get a few table scraps. The GOP has sold their soul to the political devil, and they will now get the screwing they so richly deserve.
This was worse than the Romney loss, IMHO.
That is a heavy blow.
She won, roughly 63-36%
I thought that the state GOP gerrymandered him into a bad redistricting. If there's anything the establishment Republicans seem to hate, it's the Tea Party. More so than Democrats.
Unfortunately, Debbie WashedOut-Shitz wond handily. Some people were thinking it’d be close - but it wasn’t.
WashedOut-Shitz (D) 63%
Harrington (R) 35%
I nominate him to replace Weepy McBoner as Speaker of the House. Can I get an AMEN?!?!
Sorry to hear it.
When George Allen was redistricted out of his seat he ran for governor and won.
West seems as good a politician as Allen...
Liberalism is indeed a mental disease. Shlitz also is certifiable,....and, unfortunately, she casts votes which affect all of us, not only her district.
This is a sad outcome, but I think he’ll rise again. And, yay, we got crazy Alan Grayson back! He and Harry Reid will lead the Crazy Charge.
Small victories here in AZ. We got to keep Sheriff Joe. Matt Salmon is headed back to the House. Jeff Flake won the senate race, but I am ambivalent about him. My district was redrawn and we are faced with a too-close-to-call race that has not been decided yet.
Here is tragedy.
The hits just keep on coming.
Allen West out. Alan Grayson in. This country is so phuked.
I wish LTC West would move to a part of the state where he would be appreciated.
You said it. Not just the tea party, they despise conservatives in general. They really want to be a center-left party to take on the hard left democrat party but those damned conservatives keep forcing them to tack to the right. They hate it and think that's why they lose. They'd rather lose races outright than support a tea party candidate, thinking that they're better off without those embarrassing tea-party nuts distracting everyone from their goal agenda of entitlement expansion, amnesty, and increased regulation. I'm talking to you, John Boehner! And you, Karl Rove! And you, John McCain! And you, anyone named Bush!
I'm pretty sick of them asking for my support when it's clear they consider me and my beliefs distasteful.
WEst didn’t get much help from the GOP. The GOP is NOT conservative, have you noticed yet??
What a fine man to lose! He should hit the road today and run for president in 4 years!
Did I just hear that he was challenging the results due to serious problems with re-counts after original posting and locked doors so no observers?
damn right he should, these results do not make sense
walker won his two elections and yet Ryan never came close
I4 corridor was plus 7 for Romney but it went for obama
Broward and their tactics too.
Military votes split in VA , even after Libya,
union votes up by 5% and yet voting is down and after these last 4 years.
PA, OH, FL observers kicked out
machines not working or voting for obama
there is much more but have to go out but this stinks to high heaven
That isn’t the real Florida down there, it’s Chicago and NYC and Boston refugees.
Does he need any observers...I would drive down and help!
I-4 is filled with Puto, et, Puerto Rican Third World filth.
I am looking at these results and they do not add up.
Wlker won his race twice but Ryan doe snot come close.
Military vote is plsit just in VA which is unheard of and after Libya etc.
Pols showed FL for Romney, I;m here and others are saying that there is no way obama won
Poll showed the I-4 corridor for Romney by 7 just a couple of days ago
PA had observers thrown out as did FL
OH union votes went up by 5% which does not make sense as obama got less votes and after these 4 years that does not make sense
It goes on and on and these results just do not add up , I;ve even looked at the counties here and something is fishy
check post 44
won’t do any good. the ballots have been filled out... the numbers prolly add up.
the trick is ... who cast the votes.
This is a shocker! Mia Love lost....wow!
I most have been truly delusional these last months, thinking we were going
to be able to take the country back and get some good people on board. I
really feel lost.
I am not a conspiracy person, but nothing makes any sense to me on any of this.
All the pundants were wrong. The Democrates have always seemed to be relaxed about winning this race. We heard from axlerod and the rest how there was no issue with winning. Trumka got his merry men and women together. All across the country we were shellacked. I almost feel delusional thinking we had a chance. Heck even DWS won and she wasn’t even campaigning for crying out loud. She killed her opponenant(Harrington) who raised over a million dollars and lost worse than she did the last go around. I need to really step back and give up this political garbage. It will not make a difference at the end of the day.
nonme of these resutls add up none at all.
military votes ever go half but in one state htye did and thta was VA.
The I-4 corridor was a dead cert for Romney and yet it went the other way, Broward did their usual crap
Mia Love in Utah was up double dgits and lost.
Ryan came no where in WI and yet the same voters voterd Walker twice
lESS VOTES FOR OBAMA BUT oH UNION VOTES UP 5%
I cou;ld go on and on about certain races and hwo the Dems beat the odds and how our turnout was low which makes no sense.
I wish someone who did this for a job looked more into all of this and coudl check these votes and what was the Dems doing when they threw out republican observers?
Where was the DOJ when a lot fo stuf was going on?
Nothing is being said because we ae many on our side which just go with the flow.
we have a media which fails to report any of this and asks questions.
Meanwhile obama is dear leader and the country is now gone, this election was it and in the last 4 years he changed the country and nonone on our side is investigating it seems but I;ve talked to many in my state, trust me about 50 today and all have said that this does nt make sense that FL went obama
Another freeper in FL said that all the polls workers were different and then I though I they were at our station, An hispanic woman who tried to tell my wife she coudl not go next to me when we voted or we could nto share the sample ballot
Other posters on here in FL have said that they are shcked and doee not make sense
I saw this on the 11 o’clock news. Oh, how I hope this helps him. Just wish Romney would do the same. The thoughts of 4 more years of the #1 clown makes my stomach hurt.
