Skip to comments.Venting: Alabama
Posted on 12/12/2017 8:53:19 PM PST by MountainWalker
Let me say I am extremely disappointed in the loss tonight. I would have stuck with Strange in the primary, but I would have voted for Moore if I lived in Alabama. This is a double loss since Sessions has been such a lousy AG and set the table for this Mueller witch hunt but would have been a reliable Senate vote.
I wish people would understand that the difference between glory and destruction with high risk candidates is pretty slim even in Alabama. The media is the enemy - the communication wing of the DNC and will sabotage R candidates or run interference for D's as the situation requires. How many people know Senator Menendez is a pedophile? How bad does a Senator Strange sound tonight?
Let's not kid ourselves: Moore lost this seat. If any Democrat gave as tepid a response to the pedo charges leveled at him, we'd be all over him. He was stupid, selfish and reckless to have run with this is his past, and the media deliberately waited to expose him until he was locked onto the ballot. They tried to do the same to Trump with the Access Hollywood tape, waiting until well after Trump clinched the nomination but it backfired ultimately because of Trump's dynamism and the weakness of the charges once you get past the crassness of the remark. Still, Trump only won by about 80k votes across some key states.
This country is teetering on the abyss if it's not already fallen into it and we just haven't realized it yet. We need bulletproof candidates because the media is gunning for our guys while they bury stories for any Democrats whose seats might get filled by Republicans, either at the ballot box or appointed by Republican governor. This is the battlefield we have to operate in, and there's nothing we can do about that but not make unforced errors with lousy candidate quality control.
What reason does the creepy state have to not commit vote fraud?
They’ve been doing it forever. Behavioral Science 101.
The MSM is the Country’s greatest threat. Parent companies: Disney, Comcast, and inevitably AT&T.
Don’t subscribe to companies that piss in your shoes.
The GOP hates it’s base. Embracing that base gets them no points for social signalling, and doesn’t put money in their owner’s pockets. They hate you, and the people who own them really hate you.
This destroyed my day. Really cannot understand Alabama voting for this POS. Very disheartened.
If everybody here vented about Moore’s loss with a Vanity Thread,
Jim would run out of band width real quick.
There are plenty election threads where u could have posted your comments.
When is it going to be “okay” to tell the truth about what is going on in this country this year? Why don’t Trump supporters say #winning, “we always wanted Doug Jones” to win?
Soros, the media, marxists/democrats did a coup in Alabama
Forces Allied against 1 man Moore
2. the media
3. minorities vote for democrats/socialism
4. blacks 25% of population in AL vote for democrats/socialism
5. The democrat party
8.immigrants vote for democrats/socialism
7. voter fraud
imo it wasnt the true Americans in Alabbama nor Moores fault.
Democrats have been importing an army of minorities etc. for many decades. This is happening in many states and is how they turned California communist.
Wouldn’t it be great if AG Session resigned to be appointed elsewhere where he would be more effective and President Trump nominated and got Judge Roy Moore to be the AG. I know, I know, it can’t/won’t happen but man would that be a killer team or what!!
Hey! Most of us donate so that pays for the occasional vanity.
I would have done ANYTHING to save this seat - even voting for Moore, who is, let’s face it, a buffoon.
This result shows that there are limits to how bad our candidates can be, and serves notice that Bannon must be ignored.
Keeping the Senate is the most important thing we have on our agenda for 2018. If we lose it, then forget all the Trump judges, which will be his lasting legacy.
President Trump won Alabama last year with 1.3 million votes. If Roy Moore could've rallied 3/4 or even 2/3rds of them to the polls, he'd be celebrating tonight.
He couldn't even get half of them.
No fraud was necessary.
I mostly agree with you, but if Roy Moore can’t unequivocally come to his own defense over pedophilia charges, he shouldn’t expect others to do so.
Suffice it to say the appointment of Sessions was the solitary worst mistake that Trump has made. All that followed has been disastrous. Can only hope that there will be no further debacles and that it is now in the past.
Ultimately it is low information voters of all parties who are to blame for not supporting candidates who will support and defend the Constitution.
The long view of this is that the Republic will be lost within a generation if we do not stop the attrition of young people to socialism. Government schooling and media are root causes. The media will not change.
25% of the population in Alabama are black . add to that minorities and immigrants and liberals. These 3 groups vote for democrats/marxism as they are brainwashed by the news media.
Trump had more media exposure to fight the sexual allegations. The media didn’t give Moore the chance.
President Trump will never speak Roy Moore's name again. He's already congratulated Doug Jones and moved on.
Sessions needs to go. As of tonight, I’ve had ENOUGH of him.
THIS IS 100% MCCONNELLS FAULT.
HE LOST A STATE THAT WENT 28% FOR TRUMP
