The Referendum

Obama and his henchmen (and mouthpieces in the media) have already begun to spin tonight’s elections.  They insist that the elections are strictly local and NOT a referendum on Obama’s and the Dem Congress’ performance thus far.  Bullshit!  Here are the races.  As long as I’m awake, I will post comments regarding the races as results come in.


There are the races for governor and all statewide races including the Virginia Assembly.  Projections are that the GOP will make gains across the board.  There is a potential for the GOP to sweep the state’s big 3 offices – Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General.  Late polls show Republican Robert McDonnell with a 10+% lead over Democrat Creigh Deeds for governor.


Chris Christie (R) is going up against incumbent Dem, Jon Corzine for New Jersey’s governor.  Corzine has run the state into ruins and jacked up taxes.  This is a close race.  Corzine has spent millions of his billions on this race.  It’s too close to call, but this would be a major upset in a deep blue state.


A race for New York’s 23 rd US House Congressional District pits Doug Hoffman (C) versus Bill Owens (D).  As you all know, the liberal Republican dropped out a few days ago and gave her personal support to the Democrat.  Owens is a life-long Republican with conservative values.  Late polls show him with a slight lead even after the departure of the pseudo-Republican.  This would make a major statement concerning Obama and the Dems in Congress.  Additionally, it would send a sharp message to the GOP establishment.  Stay tuned.

Obama and Biden have assisted the national Dems in pouring all their resources into each state.  So when the media and the White House downplay the importance of these results – don’t believe them for a damned minute.  The fact that the Dems are so concerned with these “petty local elections” show that they take them seriously.  There is a statement to be made here.  I hope the message goes for our side.  These are all 3 states that voted for Obama last time around.  The Dems and the White House have shown some urgency in all three states.  They know the implications.

  1. THIS JUST BREAKING – Chris Matthews is still a liberal, hack asshole. (See his interview with Rep. Eric Cantor [R] re: Virignia’s race and Palin).

  2. With 30% of the vote reported, FOX has just declared Republican McDonnell as the NEW GOP GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA!!! The Lt Gov. and Attorney General GOP candidates are still holding over 60%

    1 down……2 to go! New Jersey polls just closed.

  3. Republicans Bolling and Cuccinelli have been declared winners in the Virginia Lt. Gov and AG races (respectively). Strong GOP sweep in VA.

  4. The panel on CNN (including Carville and Brazile) is throwing Deeds under the bus now – as Rush predicted. The spin has begun. It’s not Obama or the Dems or their policies. It’s the quality of the Dem candidate.

    That’s why they lost in Viriginia, right? Nevermind the sweep of the top 3 offices in the state. Losers and liars opine.

  5. With 17% of the vote reported, the Republican, Chris Christie, has an 11% lead in New Jersey’s Governor’s race. Looks good so far. Not secure yet by any means.

    New York polls just closed. Incoming.

  6. I’m watching it too, buddy…was about to post on the John Allen Muhammed stuff, but this is too good to ignore. If Christie wins, it’ll be a HUGE upset, one Obama can’t ignore. And if Hoffman wins in NY23, it’ll be a march down the road to victory in 2010.

  7. I’m off for the night. Some counties from NY 23 won’t even report til tomorrow.

    Hoffman closed it to 7%. I’m hoping and praying, but this race might go on.

  8. I’m about to hit the rack myself…they’re saying there were glitches in some of the machines in NY23, so we may not really know until sometime tomorrow afternoon.

  9. Hi Phil,

    Been watching closely, last I heard – there was a 4-point lead for Owens in NY23 at 71% of total count – however, most of the first half of the votes came from Owens’ home county and Scozzofava’s as well.

    I knew this one was going to be a cliffhanger. I see a couple of re-counts ahead of us.

    Also, you named Owens as a life long conservative. I believe you meant Hoffman – he’s the conservative fella who replaced Scozzofava. Owens is the Democrat.
