    So, the left and dems and Liberal Media are in full spin mode. Trying to say the Result of the Election in NY means Americans have turned away from Republicans already.

    Lets examine the Facts. The Democrat did win, by a margin on 5%, She got less than 50% of the Vote. She had help in the form of a former Democratic Candidate who ran under the Tea Party, despite not having any Tea Party support, or Endorsement. This split the Conservative vote, and the Dem won an Election she could not have won in a 2 Candidate race.

    Only the Delusional Democrats could think having to pull a fast one, and slip a Democrat Plant in as a tea Party Candidate to win an Election, Means the American Voters are back on their side.

    Only the Delusional Democrats would characterize winning an Election with less than 50% of the vote as some kind of overwhelming statement in their favor.

    The Simple truth is that with out the Former Democratic Candidate pretending to be a tea Party candidate. The Republican would have won by 4%.

    You guys are just completely off your rockers.

    Only a scared Conservative would worry about it what the Delusional Democrats think.

    First, you assume that all the Tea Party vote would have gone to the Republicans. That may or may not be true.

    But even if it were true and the Republican won, that's so totally not the point. The Republicans won that district with 74% of the vote in 2010. The Democrat candidate won the same percentage of votes as they won in 2006 when the Dems swept the country.

    I do think one should not read too much into a special election, but if the Republicans stick their head in the sand and ignore this, they risk getting hammered next year.

    The Tea Party is NOT popular right now. Here in Florida, Tea Party governor Rick Scott has an approval rating of 29%, the lowest in recorded history, whereas his negatives are 57%. Poll after poll has shown that even though people like the idea of reducing the deficit, they are decidedly against cutting specific programs that affect them.

    The New Conservative Movement is a shooting star. They had momentum, couldn't control themselves and over reached terribly. Look at Wisconsin, Ohio, and now Ryan trying to put the hammer down on the whole country with the Medicare thing.

    The bad thing now is, If they officially back off... they look like idiots. If they don't, they look like bastards.

    Rock? meet Hard Place.

    Ok... allow me to add Florida to Wisconsin and Ohio.

    That's the problem with extremism... sooner or later, people start to recognize it.

    I think the Middle Class is rising. For years they have neglected and they have not taken part of in the recovery from the 2001 recession and again not in this one.
    Now it's not all the GOP's fault that companies are holding down wages despite record profits. But it seems the working class has had enough of it. And then the GOP comes out and supports Ryan's vision for Medicare and future tax cuts that more than primarily benefits the uber wealthy.
    So the GOP who in the eyes of the Middle Class appears to be tools of the Fat Cats who have held down the Middle Class. Look at their actions, they speak louder than cheap words.
    Maybe the GOP should start identifying the Middle Class, who the Middle Class is and why the Middle Class is becoming more and more vocal about their position in the grand scheme of things.

    We know a dumb idea when we see it. Thankfully its early enough to fine-tune Ryan's Plan, maybe more like the Debt Commission's recommendations.

    What you guys aren't realizing is that Jack Davis isn't a Democrat turned Tea Partier - he's a Republican-turned-Democrat-turned-Republican-turned Tea Partier.

    The residents of NY 26 know who Jack Davis is - he's ran for that seat 5 times already. No one was "fooled" by his Tea Party Party.

    Any people who voted for Davis were supporters of his, not people who thought they were voting for "the most conservative" candidate.

    How does a Democrat get help from a Democrat running as a Third Party?

    That is daft.

    Davis's constituency was/is mostly Democrat.
