Seeing the numbers that the RAT is pulling in Erie County... I don’t see how Corwin can win this. This is pretty much over and will be a RAT pickup.

What a shame. I am so mad at that Chris Lee. What a dope. Now the media and the Dems will be crowing about their huge victory, and he helped hand it to them. But I thought this was a majority Republican district. What is with voters there turning blue now?! Do they want to go back to the days of the Pelosi Congress?? If they are so timid that the GOP Congress has them so scared then what hope is there.

Medicare.

The American people are just not yet ready to deal with entitlements. This nation is still wedded to the social welfare state and there is real clear evidence that people are willing to ween themselves from it.

there is no way a Dem can win in today’s climate in these kind of areas unless there is a massive fraud.

I thought up there was a more conservative area too .

Davis the former Democrat and FAKE Tea Party Candidate worked out well for his buddy Hochul.

Looks like you only have to fool 8% of the people part of the time, on Election Day.

Using fraud as an excuse is just not gonna cut it. This is a very heavily conservative district. If we lose, it won't be because of fraud.

There is fake Tea Party candidate drawing 5-10% of the vote and the American people do not seem willing to even reform Medicare - let alone curtail entitlements.

The Dem is close to 50% anyway. Unless every vote went from the fake TP guy to the Republican it looks like she might have lost anyway. Too bad. Sounds like Corwin would have been an asset to the House GOP.

So now the Dems will think they can use this to take back their majority next year? If the American people are that weak willed then we are in big trouble.

Exactly. Until we have a President who will look the American people in the eye and tell them the truth rather than demagogue, this nation will continue to go the way of the Euro-Socialist model of a stagnant economy and confiscatory taxes. The young people are screwed.

This will be a good indicator for the Dems also that they have to play dirty tricks like running a fake Tea Party candidate in order to split the GOP vote. Watch for it to happen in races next year. So when do we start to fight fire with fire, as they say? Maybe it’s time to fund some Republicans and have them run as fake lefties. Why not? Trying to be moral and not use dirty tricks has hurt our side a lot.

What is it with the GOP in the north east, are they this stupid or lazy all the time?

To lose to the Dems today is pure voter stupidity and the GOP needs to address this instead of relying on the Soros media to tell the truth

we’re taking fists to a gun fight for crying out loud the GOP had better get balls and stop playing nice .

The left are lying, doing fraud, putting in fake candidates etc, then we have to combat this.

if the left likes race and class politics then put a black person acting as a Dem in their race, put a person using class warfare in their race and then they can change their vote for those years in power.

I’m sick to death of the cowardly GOP being nice while the Soros media and the left piss all over us, do fraud and lie and we just take this crap.

Uh, because this is a free country and you are allowed to run under different ballot lines. There is nothing to "bring charges" for. While underhanded, what he did was perfectly legal.

I don’t think this is necessarily the people being stupid. I’ve read reports that the Tea Party sympathizers know this is a dirty trick and aren’t falling for it. Also, Corwin ran a LOT of ads pointing out the dirty trick.

I see this as the result of two main issues: 1) backlash against the Republicans in general because Chris Lee behaved so badly and 2) Medicare scare tactics which will be repeated in every congressional race in the country in the next election so the GOP better be ready to counter it.

Corwin ran a lousy campaign. She flipped and flopped over Ryan’s plan, and was very late to grasp that Ryan’s plan was not popular in her district.

She didn’t do any independent thinking.

Medicare. The American people are just not yet ready to deal with entitlements. This nation is still wedded to the social welfare state and there is real clear evidence that people are willing to ween themselves from it.

Bingo. What they don't seem to understand is there is only a small window to salvage their precious welfare state with a minimum of pain. Four more years of Obama and the democrats and another 5+ trillion blown. By the end of the decade they will know what real pain is, living in a country where the dollar is in free fall and double digit inflation is the norm and China is dictating our financial policy. The government will be forced to slash entitlements, not the rate of growth stuff that Ryan is talking about, but REAL cuts in the 30%-50% range just to cover the interest payments on the national debt and good luck finding a doctor who will even accept medicare, by then the government will only be able to reimburse doctors pennies on the dollar.

There is a cruel part of me, that almost wishes to see this scenario occur just so these folks can learn the hard way about personal responsibility and not to depend on government. However, I realize a lot of innocent people would be hurt in the process and there is a good chance the country might not recover for decades if ever.

Based on what I read the GOP candidate did go after him and try to expose his leftism. If not enough people were paying attention and voted for him because they thought he was a good guy then they are more stupid than we think. Almost makes 2010 look like a fluke. I guess these voters have no problem with Pelosi care either. So now they get a liberal Democrat rep. so they get what they deserve. When she votes down the line with 0bama and Pelosi no Republican who voted for her or Davis has any right to complain, IMO.

indeed but it seems one or two does think so on here of all places.

There is no way the Dems should win with all our problems unless there was something going on.

You might not have heard but Jacksonville also got a Clinton hack as mayor last time I checked the other day too.

We’re talking about a more conservative/ republican area and in today’s climate the Dems are winning, no way . I know of not one person who is happy with the Dems and yet they seem to get local elections just in time for the big one and after a massive vIctory to the GOP

doesn’t make sense

the problem is with the media and bow they have been paid off by Soros.

People are not being told the truth and that is why the Dems will get votes.
If the GOP does not go after and call out the media then we might as well not run anyone against obama.

They do have a problem with Pelosi etc but when they do not know and only heard quick messages then they have no clue as to what they’re voting.

I know of not one person who is happy with obama or the Dem right now but they seem to be wining local elections. COME ON NO WAY.

the GOP better get guts and stop playing nice guy , look at me media i ma nice please like me crap

TOTALLY AGREE

putting out this plan played right into the left and now the left does no budget and the have plans for the next 4 years.

The GOP should have shut up, told the voters what they wanted to hear and then done the deeds once in power and when we have a majority

All we did was to play into their hands, talk about a Christmas gift for them when they wee so low in the polls.

Now it will be look at republicans they want to get rid of your medicare etc and because they have a media paid off by Soros then this will go viral.

HOW STUPID YET AGAIN BY THE GOP, AARRGGHHH

JOhnny Bonehead let the Tea party fraud and Dems out spend the GOPer.

I was told that a local radio talk shown host was promoting the Tea party millionaire fraud non stop.

Frankly , the GOP killed the base morale with Bonehead not stopping Obamacare in the Pelosi BUDGET !
He is a disaster and needs to GO.

Bonehead is a K street darling and they want Obamacare !

Voters gave the GOP the House last November because voters expected that the GOP would take IMMEDIATE and CONCRETE action on pushing back the insane and out of control growth of the government, especially entitlements.

The GOP, including Ryan, are doing EXACTLY what the voters put them in office to do.

Yet you're complaining about it and saying the GOP should be reneging on the promises they made to the voters in November for political gain. If they did that, where would the voters turn after they were lied to yet once again.

Direct your anger at Democrats, not at Republicans who are walking the walk and talking the talk we expected them to do when we voted for them.

This is the time when leadership is crucial and doing what is right MUST be done. Politics as usual is taking this nation the way of Greece.

I'll take 100 Paul Ryans any day rather than a bunch of mealy mouthed, sleazeball demagogues who only care about getting re-elected.

“Medicare scare tactics which will be repeated in every congressional race in the country in the next election so the GOP better be ready to counter it.”

The GOP already has the counter and they are not using it. It is not demagoguery to repeatedly focus on how unserious the dems are about fixing the problems. Barry’s lack of cuts and fairy tale “budget”, over 700 days without a senate budget, etc., etc.

McConnell should be blasting his “good friends across the aisle” at every opportunity. Boehner should refuse to extend the debt ceiling beyond Dec 31st under any circumstances and make it a central Presidental campaign issue.

But instead these beltway RINO’s are tip toeing toward disaster in 2012.

way I look at it

the Dems are like locusts .
They ruin an area.
They then ruin their new area.
They make it look like their old area.
They then move on again to do the same thing.

It is based out of ignorance here in this state.
They are old union hacks, “I’ve always voted Dem” or just “I like JFK” like my MIL.

The only place where my state is Dem is the south east where illegals etc and snowbirds moved to.
Thankfully I’m in the north east

BTW WELCOME back to the south

no you miss the point, the voters wanted cuts but for crying our loud ask a old person if they want medicare cutting and the answer is no
Think about it.

The Dems never put a budget, why? Because they they’re smart.
We were thinking after the win we had it and we never did ,.
Hell even a kid can understand this

This is not about what you or I want this is about getting power and there is the problem.
WE have to get the word out and then call them out and then get power to pass laws .
