Weprin Blames Obama for NY-9 Loss (Ha-Ha Dems Play Blame Game Alert)
Commentary ^ | 9/14/2011 | Alana Goodman

Posted on 09/14/2011 3:44:55 PM PDT by mojito

Some Democrats are arguing that the NY-9 race doesn’t mean anything for Obama’s 2012 chances. But according to David Weprin, the Democratic candidate who lost the NY-9 race to Republican Bob Turner, Obama has “major problems” in New York.

Weprin blamed Obama’s unpopularity and Israel issues for his failed bid during an interview with Washington Jewish Week’s Adam Kredo:

My first question for Weprin was, “What happened?”

His reply: “The media, my opponent somewhat successfully made it a referendum on Obama. I don’t know if it was just Israel, but Israel certainly was a major part of it.”

Whether real or perceived, there’s “no question” that the president “has some major issues in New York,” Weprin said. “I certainly suffered from the effects of that.”

I still say Weprin sounds like a prescription medication.

I can't wait to have 0bama, sitting by a crackling fire, lecture us wearing a cardigan sweater this winter.

Then His morph in Carter 2.o will be complete.

The fact that Weprin is so quick to blame his loss on Obama indicates he knows that a LOT of Dems — especially Dem candidates — will understand and sympathize. That speaks volumes.

He is vaguely medicinal.

Too bad they didn't run an ad like: “0bamas recommend Weprin two to one over that bargain brand.”

He's right, but,

the Hitler mustache and dead animal on his head didn't help, either.

Yes, this shark-infested pool is an amusing spectacle as congressional dems either slam or distance themselves from the incumbent because it helps their poll numbers.

Great! The POTUS should tailor his foreign policy, not for the sake of America as a whole, but so that some liberal Democrat can win a seat in NY.

Sheesh!

Dear AttackWatch.com:

David Weprin is spreading a vicious rumor that President Obama was responsible for his defeat yesterday. Please have a Teamster take that SOB out.

Yes, and another huge problem was the marriage issue.

Now, I need to be precise here. If Weprin (like Weiner before him) had simply mouthed the usual “yes to gay marriage” statements, he’d’ve been fine in that district. But no.

Weprin made the outrageous statement — in THAT district, with a heavily Jewish population — that people who oppose legalizing gay marriage are like those who would outlaw intermarriage between Jews and Gentiles. HUH?

I had to read that to my wife who enjoyed it too. Thanks for the belly laugh - hope you follow through and actually post this on Attackwatch!

How about the fact that Mr. Weprin did not live iin the district and had no intention of moving into the district. Said that he’d “vote from his mother’s house.” What an arrogant clown.

The longshoreman has better hair.

Plus, I am pretty sure that's not a Hitler mustache. I think it's just a shadow. :)

His toupee DID live in the district, though. That has to count for SOMEthing.

I did think it hilarious that the Democrats tried to attack GOP candidate Turner because he lives in a gated community of some sort. “At least I live in the district!”

I suspect Barry’s upcoming Bus Tour II will be limited to Maxine Waters district. He’s poison everywhere else.

He’d look like Netanyahu if he’d lose the wig and the mustache. Then he would have won.

That the guy with the interesting name? I think he told the reporter his name was c*******er m*********er or something like that. That gives the name “Weprin” a run for its money.

Obama, less sense than Carter, more hubris than Clinton,
less honor than Nixon and half the brains of LBJ.

Weprin is a dead ringer for Ira Flatow of NPR and PBS.

Might as well blame the stupidity of the voters, too. That seems to be a common excuse on DU.
