After losing seven consecutive House special elections, Republicans finally win one! In Obama’s home district in Hawaii!
Well done Charles, now can he keep it come November?
Hopefully the crappier Dem wins their primary so he gets a better shot.
I didn’t realize we lost that many in row. What about scott brown>
The Media’s New Villain – Rand Paul
Looks like he Djou’d his way into winning this one, eh?
“Djou 67,274 votes, 39.5%, Democratic state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa 52,445 votes, 30.8%, and Democratic former Rep. Ed Case 47,012 votes, 27.6%. ”
Dems stupid to run 2 candidates who split the vote.
But, wait, this is just another affirmation of the Ascendency of Republican/Wingnut values, right?
Yep…he’s got a mandate! Repuglican’s gonna f–k up Hawaii now I guess.
Gee, that’s awfully good news for Conservatives!
Let’s celebrate with a Coca-Cola® down at the malt shop.
Um, so, the Dems won that seat?
Louisiana blasts BP, U.S. govt for slow oil response
Obama got the most money from BP.
And the Feds are no where to be found.
In the pocket of big oil, at the expense of the environment.
Where is algore?
McRock “Dems stupid to run 2 candidates who split the vote.” Worked for you in NY 23. In fact, you haven’t stopped talking about that one. Always good, however, when you where your hypocrisy proudly on your sleeve. BTW, how’s that Times Square Bomber being a right wing terrorist theory working out for you? Oh, that’s right, you just move on….spew and move, spew and move.
where = wear
I’m as conservative as a guy can be, and I dearly hope the GOP re-gains control of the House and Senate in November. But 7 consecutive losses in a row?! Are we fooling oursleves into believing that the Republicans have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning much of anything this year?
White House corruption ….
while our administration and Dem congress continues to look away or make political excuses.

Seems like somebody’s swastika panties are chafing again…
In Pennsylvania’s 12th, Critz ran against the Health Care Bill, against Cap and Trade, etc. It is a heavily Dem district and the election was held against a backdrop of a contentious Dem primary. Burns did reasonably well, but his campaign did not do a good job on the get out the vote effort. Regardless, Critz is now in the position to either vote with the Republicans on pretty much everything key or risk being tossed out on his butt in November. Then we had the NY 23 debacle, where the Party forced a lib loser R upon the electorate-we still came within a a couple percentage points.
FL-19 was a sure loser for us, it is a heavily D district and a fairly liberal one at that. Same kind of deal with the 2 California districts, Obama is still popular in that state.
NY-20 was held in April of last year before the Health Care Debate really heated up- we were barely out of the first hundred days honeymoon period. Same thing with IL-5, which also is another heavy D district.
All this talk of 7 losing streak ignores the GA-9 race, which is in a runoff between 2 conservative republicans-the Dem didn’t even finish in the top two out of 7 or 8 candidates.
All of these 7 have been tough fights with low percentage for victory except NY-23 and PA-12 due to timing and the voter makeup of the districts. All 7 have been Dem seats, except for NY-23, which was held by McHugh, who resigned to become Sec. of the Army in the Obama administration (couldn’t have been that Conservative).
Add to this the Dems still have a money advantage for now -they are not raising as much and are having to spend a lot to defend these seats, we are closing the gap.
It isn’t going to be easy, but I still expect somewhere around 55 seat pickup in the House and 8-9 in the Senate.
GOP grabbing failure from the jaws of victoroy.
With a leader like Steele what do you expect?
McConnel, Graham, Snowe, Collins, commies all jamming up the works every time….Scott Brown, huge disappointment….
They have all the guns…seiu, acorn, laraza, wall street, banks, corporations, other country contributions..THE FRIGGIN MEDIA
Burns hinted that he could support a federal sales tax. Maybe the R’s should run someone different in November. In HI, it looks like it’s going to be a 3 way race again. NY 23 is going R in November. There wouldn’t be 2 R’s splitting a majority of the votes. These specials have all been taking place in blue states for mostly Dem seats. Keep in mind that there are almost 80 Dem seats out there that are in districts that Bush and/or McCain won. GA-9 is a early warning of what’s going to happen in the red states in November.
