Even Yoda would have loved the results of yesterday's special elections. In both New York and Nevada, the GOP wrested seats away from the Dems in races that were largely considered referendums on The Big Zero, Obama.
And this came despite dirty tricks by Nevada's Dem Secretary of State, Ross Miller, who declared this to be an open ballot election, which would have drawn multiple Republicans — a scenario Democrats had hoped would divide the GOP vote enough to allow a single Democratic candidate to win. But the GOP took the case to the State Supreme Court, arguing that they had a right to select their own candidate via a party primary race, and the Court agreed, swatting down Miller's chicanery. With the election made fair again, the Dems had no chance and they knew it.
In New York, Bob Turner, a first-time political candidate beat a career Democrat in a heavily Democrat-infested district for Anthony "let-me-show-you-my" Weiner's old seat. That race was all about Obama and even the loser, David Weprin, tried to distance himself from Barackus Failus, but alas, he couldn't pull it off and had to run with Obama standing on his coattails. And Obama, who has a 54% disapproval rate among likely voters in that district, was clearly an albatross if ever there was one as even the fact that registered Dems outnumber Republicans by a 3-to-1 majority in that district wasn't enough to save him.
Americans are speaking, folks. And what they are saying is that they want Obama and his policies stopped. They obviously aren't blaming the Republicans for our current economy no matter what Obama and his pet media lapdogs keep saying or else they would not have handed these two seats to the GOP in landslides.
More and more, 2012 is looking like it's going to be an interesting year, isn't it, folks?
