nevada deserves to fail!

with 17% unemployment, and counting people who have given up

looking for jobs, 22% unemployment,

nevada is near the great depression levels of unemployment.

to vote for more of the same, is stupid.

I’m just looking on the bright side - we got rid of Pelosi and we still Harry to kick around.

Just checked their website to see which hotels are Harrah’s. Paris, Caesars, Planet Hollywood and Rio to name a few. We’ve been to Paris and will never return. Some of the rudest people ever working there.

Not a single explanation in that article seems plausible. The GOP governor won 380k to 298k... the GOP House seats totaled 356k to 315k... but Harry Reid wins by 360k to 320k. That means that 45,000 people voted for the GOP House seat, but also voted for Harry... and that 62,000 people voted for the GOP Governor, but also voted for Harry Reid. One out of every 7-8 GOP voters had such a significant disconnect. Why? Sorry, but I don't buy that it was because "Harry got his message out with a barrage of last-minute ads".

Nevadans know who and what he is. The Nevada DEM-ontrolled Congress lost its super-majority, the House and Gov seats went GOP, and it was for the same reason as the rest of the country: a repudiation of the Reid/Pelosi?Obama agenda... and one of the architects of that agenda gets a pass by ~13% of those otherwise voting against that agenda? I really don't buy that. I'd like an investigation into this one.

In Ohio, when Howard Metzenbaum ran for election, he would employ the same scare tactics. Don’t vote for the Republicans — they are going to take away your social security. Worked every time.

Nevadans got what they deserve!

Yes they did. So did Californians, apparently. I expect that those 2 states will continue to drive residents over the borders into neighboring states. Taxes will continue to rise, but won't cover the defictits. Tax payers and businesses will flee. Home values will continue to plummet long after other parts of the country begin to recover.

I still wonder how much criminals activity was done to get this old fart reelected

A state economy and tourism based on gambling is a criminal enterprise to start with, no surprise here. I'm just proud of Sharron Angle's willingness to do battle with pure evil.

Reid, who in open Congress accused our military of murder, the intentional killing of innocent civilians and constantly beat the drum of defeatism is unrepentant.

Bring back the Rule of Law, honor the US Constitution, investigate, prosecute and incarcerate now, ASAP, for the honor of our sons and daughters serving their country.

Reid won by over 60,000 votes. The power failure was only at one polling place in Vegas. Please get a grip. Angle ran a lousy campaign.

The people of Nevada spoke”

The ILLEGALS of Nevada & the SEIU Union of Nevada spoke.
I NEVER saw a single Reid sign in my area of N Nevada. One large stack of hay just south of Yerington had been spray painted:
ANYONE BUT HARRY REID. You couldn’t miss it as you drove by.

Easy, Harry Reid’s son investigated the fraudulent machines. Declared no problem here.””

Rory Reid is a member of the Clark County Commissioners. I don’t know their entire role in this mess. (He lost his bid for Governor).

The Sec of State of Nevada is Ross Miller- a Democrat who is the son of a prior Governor.

Miller was the one who said “there were no VERIFIED problems with the machines & ‘it is just a little computer glitch’ & there is no need to any investigation”.

Harry Reid’s tentacles reach far & wide here in Nevada.

Sharron Angle got a lesson in basic politics. Money, foot soldiers, lies and gaffes play an enormous role.

Hairy gets six more years of ignominity! Nevadans got what they deserve!

Or what they got by tricked-out voting machines.

Won’t the House get to chase him on his buying votes and other strange things that happened in that election?
