Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

You lefties ought to watch this 50 year old cartoon.

The party with the racist is the GOP of course that's why minorities vote against them. The republican voter suppression (treason) sure isn't done to stop republicans from voting and freeman is back to tell us water isn't wet again.

A few seats turned red as usual but abortion laws lost while minimum wage and marijuana laws won. So who won the election. If wolves eat your sheep you buy a license to shoot one. This is a government program that right wingers don't want? More dry water.

If a 90 year old man is creating a disturbance and hurting your business you call the cops when he won't stop.

Nobo..It's not your death that concerns me. The question is do I decide like in Oregon or do the christians get to decide for me like in Michigan. This is one of the many reasons I have had to vote against the GOP.

No they don't. It's a lame duck session.

The next few months are critical to congress. The republicans have the ball. Lets just see how they play it.

Seriously, why are you lefties so stupid?

The "gridlock" was 380 bills still in Harry Reid's pocket. Not read, heard, considered, or voted on.

And why do you so seldom say anything consisting of any truth?

Posted 18 days ago.

So the Repubs have the Senate. Look for more of the same gridlock - after their record-setting use of the filibuster since Obama came in, they can expect plenty of the same from the Dems, and even if they manage 60 votes on something the President doesn't like, he'll veto the bill anyway. Same music, different band...

Jaxspp just looks for the silver lining I'd guess. It's an admirable trait.

Jaxsap isn't nearly articulate enough to tell us how he got to be so stupid or why he's a Democrat.

He's most adept at showing and demonstrating that stupidity...which coincidentally and simultaneously, explains why he's a Democrat.

The reasons for the Republican gains are not voter ID laws, racism or any other half baked ideas the left comes up with.

Simply put, the democratic base was not motivated to turn out because they don't feel the need to perpetuate the lack of action taken by their party. Harry Reid has obstructed congressional action for years. Members of his own caucus have complained that they can't defend their votes because they've not taken any. So they have to go home and defend doing nothing. You can't pin that on the Republicans.

I won't even address Bill Moyers... I mean, come on.

Seems like the only time they get the attention is when the democrats are in trouble. They, (the African American community), are the most loyal voting block in U.S. history and they deserve better than what they've gotten. Don't blame voter laws for their lack of turn out. THAT BIRD DON'T FLY..... TURKEY.

Since you asked jaxspp, business is flat. Costs are up and net profits are down. Health care is an issue for my employees going forward. (Most mandates have been deferred until after the midterms).

My customers are not expanding their businesses.

Those are facts. Hurts me and the people that work for me.

Voting - African American voters feel like pawns. Their economic condition has crashed and burned under the "Obama economy". Facts, what the heck, they just confuse people.

Facts, what the heck, they just confuse some people.

The post was from Bill Moyers. Not The Washington Times. Not World Net Daily. Not Breitbart. Not Rush. Not Hannity. Not Fox.

"In the last midterms in 2010, 200,000 voters cast ballots during the early voting days now cut, according to a recent court decision. In 2012, 700,000 voted during those days, including more than a quarter of all African-Americans who voted that year. In 2012, 100,000 North Carolinians, almost one-third of whom were African-American, voted using same-day registration, which was not available this year. And 7,500 voters cast their ballots outside of their home precincts that year."

"In the North Carolina Senate race, state house speaker Thom Tillis beat Senator Kay Hagen by a margin of 1.7 percent, or about 48,000 votes.

At the same time, North Carolina’s voters were, for the first time, voting under one of the harshest new election laws in the country — a law that Tillis helped to craft. Among other changes, the law slashed seven early voting days, eliminated same-day registration and prohibited voting outside a voter’s home precinct — all forms of voting especially popular among African-Americans. While it is too early to assess the impact of the law this year, the Election Protection hotline and other voter protection volunteers reported what appeared to be widespread problems both with voter registrations and with voters being told they were in the wrong precinct yesterday.

Some numbers from recent elections suggest that the magnitude of the problem may not be far from the margin of victory..."

By the way, Fact-Free, how's business in the Obama economy? Probably pretty good. You may have seen RS crashed and burned, and is blaming the government instead of his own lack of business skills. Go visit his website, Politicutandpaste, weigh in with people of your own narrow mindset.

Posted 18 days ago.

Still waiting for RS to post an election where voter fraud changed the outcome. Just one. Or is it possible the voter ID law is a solution to a non-existent problem?

Posted 18 days ago.

There is a reason these voter ID laws are being overturned, I'll let you two figure them out. It has nothing to do with me. Read the court decisions.
