Gordon Smith is Toast

Posted on 11/05/2008 5:08:26 PM PST by PublicEnemyNumber1

There are 140,000 votes left to count in Multnomah county which will go almost two to one for his opponent. There are nowhere near enough other outstanding votes for Smith. Thus, he'll lose by roughly 30,000 votes and yet another RINO is toast.

Then the dems have 3 more seats to capture the magic number 60.

I don’t think so, there are many other votes Statewide that will make up for Multnomah County. Welcome to freerepublic.com!

Lieberman said he would switch party if it came to that.

Chambliss is 110,000 votes ahead of Martin, and the Libertarian, who got 126,000 votes, will not participate in the runoff.

Thanks but no thanks. We already have too many Democrats disguised as Republicans.

Do you believe a word he says? He sold his soul for a little power in 2000. Joe only cares about Joe. He proved that.

Chambliss will hold his seat. All he needs to do in the run-off is get a very few from the Libertarian.

I also think that a lot of those voters voted straight Democrat to vote for Obama and will not come back to vote in the run-off election. I will be there again casting my vote for Saxby.

Chambliss will win b/c the blacks will not come out in droves for a special election.

This is almost like the Coverdell/Fowler runoff in 1992. That was the first time I had any “hope” after the Clinton victory.

Don’t assume too much... the Messiah may return to Georgia urging his flock to come out for the special election.

This man was such a putz. He was too stupid to even appropriate enough pork to properly rebuild the state highway from LaGrande to Milton Freewater that ran past his huge mansion on Langdon Lake in the Tollgate area.

This road is heavily travelled by large trucks and opens up a great recreational area, and as such the money could have done some real good as this was not a “bridge to nowhere”, but he was afraid of the political fallout from taking too much pork... Please don’t take this wrong I am not for pork but this highway is absolutely horrible and dangerous..

He deserves to have his butt kicked out of the senate for masquerading as a republican

Smith is a douche bag. He essentially campaigned as a democrat complete with TV ads of him and Barack. At one point, Merkley had to come out and state for the record that he was the ‘real democrat’ in the race.

I don’t care what Gordon Smith had to say to get re-elected. He MUST be re-elected to help McConnell with filibuster votes. Wake up.

Okay, where does things stand now in the Senate? I know Chambliss is in a probable run-off and Coleman is in a recount. If Smith loses, how many seats will the Demoncrat Party have? I figure that Sanders and Lieberman will vote with the Demoncrats 95% of the time, but not including them how many seats do they have now?

I hope Chambliss gets back in, if only because he has the most interesting name in the Senate...

NO KIDDING!! Come on, guys! We are way past nitpicking their records now. We must have the filibuster or the Dems will be free to cram whatever they want down our throats. Think Cap and Trade, Card Check, DC as a state, zillions for their buddies at ACORN and Planned parenthood, gay marriage, FOCA!! You don't even want to THINK about what they would do with that kind of power! Goodness! Get a grip!

The same goes for Joe Leiberman and Chambliss.

We've got 40, with 4 uncalled races: Alaska, Minnesota, Oregon and Georgia. Georgia will either be an R win, or a run-off in December (I think).

But—but—he was SO bi! Partisan that is. Am not sorry to see him go—although Merkley may prove to be a disaster. At least Merkely’s willing to acknowledge he is a donkey!

Chambliss is a damn sellout. He is an embarrassment. He is always selling American jobs to India or trying to give away American jobs to visa holders. He also was part of the sham "deal" to cut McCain's legs out from underneath him for the drill here, drill now movement last summer.

That being said, we need him at the moment.

In 2 years another 33 seats go up for re-election. I think Feinstein (CA) is one of them and she may go for Governor. But surely it will be a tough fight for a Republican from CA to win a Senate seat.

agreed! We need them all. We can't stage a conservative comeback when the senate is totally lopsided against us!

I guess people haven't learned a thing from this election. If you don't have squat it is hard to get your majority back.

Remember there are conservative Dems and Rino Repubs, but if we don't have the Rino's at this point we are toast for sure.

We don't have to like it, but we need every little bit we have to stage a come back.

After we get our control back then we can deal with the Rinos!

One step at a time people!

Nice.

So, what you’re saying is that you don’t mind lying, as long as it’s Republicans doing it.

The Ends Justifies the Means.

Don’t know about toast but seems like he may have lost or according to the latest from the Portland Oregonian.... They are projecting his defeat:
