    I lived there for 5 years during college (on and off campus-including 3 years outside of the college area), and it never came off as very conservative to me. Fairly Republican-yes. But pretty moderate as well. I think this is the biggest problem Ryan's budget is going to face. I think America is more towards the center than both parties think it is.

    I think this has more to do with there being a third party candidate in the race who performed fairly well than it does with Paul Ryan's budget plan, but those who oppose Ryan's plan will certainly spin it that way.

    Can't let the truth get in the way of politics.

    Doesn't really change anything though. The House is still in control of Republicans. 2012 is a long way off.

    That's absolutely false. As Davis declined in the polls in the last couple weeks, Hochul rose.

    Hochul just singlehandedly saved Medicare for a generation, and booted Paul Ryan back into the crackpot hole he climbed out of.

    Exactly as I predicted btw, lololol.

    Keep believing that. The republicans don't even believe that, they trotted that line out late in the game.

    Yeah. The 3rd candidate makes the win less satisfying. Prolly a combination of the two. I'm a libral too.
