I understand the elections of 2006 and 2008 as people being tired of the Iraq war and tired of republicans who controlled the presidency for 8 years, the house of reps for 12 years and the senate for 5 years.
I understand the 2010 election as real anger about healthcare.
I don’t understand the 2012 results. In a state that romney carried by 10, Mourdock (a decent candidate) lost on some very benign comments. I don’t understand a decent candidate like Scott Brown losing to a liar and a left wing nut like Warren. I don’t understand Heitkamp beating Berg. I don’t understand how a center right, decent guy like Romney loses to Obama. I don’t get how Montana can reelect a democrat and our candidate was solid.
The only thing I do understand is Akin getting beat.
“The only thing I do understand is Akin getting beat.”
I do too. rove and his honchos pulled ALL of his funding and screeched like cats in heat for him to give up the nomination. He was a true Conservative and did NOT deserve what they did to him.
I understand it perfectly... viote fraud in my opinion!
Most of the HOUSE seats remained the same, it was the Senate and President that was the upset.
It was too imprtant for Obama to lose his Presidenct and equally important he did not lose the Senate either.
VOTE.....sorry for the typo
IIRC, Akin wasn't the "Tea Party" candidate.
