    Corsine goes down like a dog, Republicans sweep Virginia Hoffman a man connected at the hip to neither political party barely loses in upstate New York, land of the me too Republicans.

    Obama doesn't matter in Jersey to 60% of voters.


    Ouch.

    All those endorsements and money from Republicans really means he's not connected to any hip huh?

    Considering how late in the day they showed up, nope. Most of the Reps climbed on board to late to do any good.

    Not at all. And what are you accusing the people of this district being? Ignorant people who don't read the papers, have internet access or watch television?

    You know, Doggie, you can play this anyway you want in your head but by any normal persons measure, Hoffman took it to the wire - a virtual unknown, with no experience, held the Democrat to the last. In public, the DNC and the GOP might be pretending that's cool but behind closed doors, the intelligent in both parties will be having a 'holy fuck' moment. And well they should.

    I dispise the spin that goes on post elections - and you are gonna throw up if you don't stop. You're like a fucking DNC hack. It's pathetic. See things for what they are, and stop sipping the kool aid.

    And that's exactly what we need in Congress. People who have no clue what they're doing. I'm sure he would of fit right in. :lol:

    I'm not a DNC hack at all. I'm just quite pleased with these results. A huge amount of the Republicans on this board rallied around Hoffman, saying he was going to win by 5-10% and in some cases 20%. And like a Bugs Bunny cartoon, it blew up right in their faces.

    Hoffman had all the money and endorsements from Republicans. He debated poorly and was a Neo Conservative. Thats why he lost.

    If you're not a DNC hack, don't act like one.

    And, if you're going to use the term neo-conservative, use it correctly.

    He lost because he isn't a me too Republican in a district dominated by them. By the way what makes you think he is a neocon?

    Oh I get it. So now you're blaming the people in that district? Classy!

    I guess they don't have a choice in who they want, it's all about you want huh?

    And he is a Neo Con based on the positions that he held. I assume you don't know them?

    There is a major shift that seems to be occurring. My district has been Democrat for a couple of decades and in every local election the Dems win with a 70% to 30% ratio. This time it was a 60 40 split. It would be interesting to see the demographics since we haven't had a large influx of people since the New Yorker invasion in the 90s. But then again a major defense/government contractor is moving it's headquarters from California to here which will have an added demographic impact in the region.
