The Virginia gubernatorial race was a huge victory for the Tea Party movement. Wait a minute! Democrat McAuliffe won, you say. How could this be a victory for the Tea Party movement and a positive precursor for the 2014 mid-terms? Heres how:

bullshit. a loss is a loss. period. say it. we lost. period.
That man being elected to anything isn’t a win for anyone, anywhere, anyhow.
It’s a crying ****ing shame and a damn disgrace and a dishonor to America.
I think New Jersey was even more incredible. To win a land slide like that in deep blue Jersey is a miracle. God was looking out for America today. Sure we lost Virginia but by a point. We should forget Virginia and start grandstanding New Jersey. I am sick of looking at the loss’ and ignoring the wins.
Cuccinelli would have won if the so-called Libertarian (maybe a Rat plant) hadn’t pulled 6% of the vote.
Yeah right. So was Obama.
This just doesn’t do it for me. I would rather participate in an ALL OUT effort to identify supposed Conservative politicians(easy: just ask them how they feel about Ted Cruz or the Tea Party)....and THEN find true Conservatives to run against them and make sure these backstabbing RINOs are primaried.
The GOP-E abandoned Cooch....We’re on our own folks.
It is a lost, but could a credible tea-party candidate have come so close to winning just a few years ago?
IMO, it’s a win because we are changing mindsets. It may take another election, or two, to start electing candidates, but we are moving forward.
You are right. Any ‘this is a moral victory’ talk is loser talk.
Virginia has had Democrats as Governor’s before and NJ has had Republicans for quite a while over the years. Christine Todd Whitman was Governor for at least two terms. It doesn’t really surprise me much. New Jersey must be getting the conservatives now and Virginia getting the liberals. The states ALWAYS have changed political parties. California used to be Republican and deep red and Texas used to be deep blue and today they are opposite. States seem to go back and forth every now and again.
Who was runner-up in last year’s Indy 500?
Agree on all points, and there’s one more consequence to the RAT party stragegery going into 2014 mid-terms.
They’re scared shiteless. Their Golden Boy, not some upstart who gives nice speeches, but one of the top money men, the most connected insider, and a Friend of Bill — BARELY won. In Virginia, which is full of big government lovers as this article points out.
It’s going to force them to change strategy, shift funds around, and basically act like a bunch of RATs where the light has just been turned on to illuminate their vile nasty places. Wars are not won with a single battle and there is much to be encouraged about tonight.
No doubt about it, this was a loss for us on the heels of the Lonegan defeat in New Jersey, but there is very good news underneath all this
A) We can learn a lot from this race. It’s time to tackle key objectives where we don’t measure up to the DemoCraps. Answering these social issue attack ads early on, GOTV effort and ground game, and exposing fake libertarian candidates.
B) My take is that... had this race been held on Friday, Cooch would have won. This was a race where we ran out of time, but Obamacare is only getting worse. King Hussein is now in the 30s approval rating range. We have all the time in the world to make the case against the Dems in 2014, based on Obamacare.
C) The fact that this state, which is trending blue, which has huge numbers of mooching government hacks, which had us outspent by ludicrous margins, almost went for an unabashed conservative, Tea Party candidate says a lot about how red states with Democrap officials may vote in 2014. You come this close in Virginia, you better feel damn good about states like Arkansas and Louisiana.
I want to repeat, if we had just had a few more days, we would have won. Let that light the fire in your belly. The momentum is with US. Let Virginia get looted by this crook. He can’t do anything significant legally without the legislature, and as much as the pundits are making of his influence for 2016, do you remember McDonnell giving Romney the state? No.
Tonight is a pretext. The Democrat’s last skin of their teeth moment before annihilation.
Cuccinelli would have won if the so-called Libertarian (maybe a Rat plant) hadnt pulled 6% of the vote.
That is just an excuse. Conservatives only voted 83 percent for Cuccinelli. 17 percent of conservatives cost him the race.
What’s the over/under on how long before Terry McPunk is indicted?
What a crock. Off year election when Dims don’t turnout and we Still lost to a horrible candidate by any measure??
This is an unmitigated disaster. I do not buy snake oil.
Don’t just look at party affiliation. Look at the political philosophies of the leadership. Texas was a heavily Democratic state when Democrats were much more conservative. It was “blue” in name but “light red” in its politics. It will turn back to “blue” in both name and politics once it gets filled with all the people who relocate there from the places they’ve ruined already (like California).
The 0bamaCare factor has only just begun. By next year people will be thinking more about nooses and pitchforks than elections. And they will vote.
much better than expected. In this election, GOP elites are more like a bunch of backstabbers.
Tea party is still a growing movement.
