Skip to comments.Jim Moran to announce retirement
Posted on 01/15/2014 5:37:01 AM PST by markomalley
Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran will retire after 23 years in the House, according to multiple Democratic sources.
The retirement is the third for Democrats this week: on Monday, Rep. George Miller (Calif.) said he would leave Congress after 40 years and Rep. Bill Owens (N.Y.) announced Tuesday he would forgo re-election in 2014.
Morans northern Virginia seat is heavily Democratic, and is unlikely to be competitive in November: President Barack Obama won 68 percent of the vote in both 2012 and 2008, and Moran coasted with 65 percent of the vote in 2012. The Democratic primary is expected to be competitive, though, since Moran has had a hold on the district since 1991.
Moran, a longtime former Alexandria, Va., city official, is expected to make the announcement Wednesday morning, according to party sources.
Is he an idiot or somewhat reasonable?
A true traitor!
Moron? He’s leaving?
Isn’t this the guy with a seriesly misspelled last name?
Great week for freedom.
Good. Now go rot & save the taxpayers the expense.
And so it begins. The SS Obamacare is losing rats by the day.
One less anti-Semite in Congress.
His replacement could be worse, though, but it’s doubtful.
Suddenly my morning coffee tastes so much better.
Glad to see one of the Left’s iconic angry psychos go out to pasture.
Ground and pound the Rats into the dustbin of history.
Crash and burn, you communist bastards.
I’m waiting for Dingell and Conyers to retire. They are both in their 80s, have had a stranglehold on their seats since the 1960s, and have long outlived their usefulness.
They know what’s right around the corner and they are getting out while the gettins’ good!
I have seen him eons ago on Matthews ( before he went around the bend ) and IMHO he was verbally the nastiest politician ( and his whole gestalt ) I think I have ever seen, even worse than Bawahnee Fwank. IMHO he will not be missed.
Good riddance to a genuine anti-American P.O.S!
“Run to the hills - run for your lives
Run to the hills - run for your lives”
after his son gets off probation for voter fraud or beating his girlfriend or whatever it was, he can run for his daddy’s seat and democrat party leadership. He’d fit right in.
Now this is really good news. But then again, New Yorkers replaced Bloomberg with DeBlasio.
If someone says they’re going to “announce their retirement,” aren’t they in fact announcing it then ?
He's an Israel-hating lunatic, probably the PLO's favorite congressman since Paul Findley (yimach shemo vezikhro!).
Yup. They are abandoning ship after leaving us with the mess they created, and be able to live on the taxpayers’ dime the rest of their lives. Low life scum.
“Loathesome” is not a strong enough word for a cretin like him. Stupid, belligerant, communist, sadistic and literally violent. From henceforth anyone like him should be called “moranish.”
The Democrats will find someone even more psychotic than Moran. Sad times in America.
Gee. why not Steny Hoyer as well?
You forgot financial deadbeat and wife beater. Please add to your list
He’s a wife beating scumbag Democrat whose son should have been indicted by Cuccinelli for conspiracy to commit voter fraud; but of course he will be honored for his great efforts to destroy America.
He's my moron. He's an unrepentant statist, a true unreasonable Pelosi syncopant RAT.
Top TEN Douche Bag in Congress.
Perhaps Matthews is going to run for Moran's seat?
I go with idiot, but that is based on other observations of his behavior over the years. A boorish drunk who verbally abuses women and children, it is with great surprise that Congressman Moran ever managed not to arouse great resistance and a rival within the Democrats ranks within his own district. He could make Alec Baldwin seem to be civil and well-mannered.
“Reasonable” is not an adjective that ever applies to Jim Moran.
Rep. George Miller is retiring? He’s the rep from my ancestral home. Smarmy liberal personified. He owns a house in DC and his tenants are Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin. A loathsome liberal of the worst sort. FUGM.
I remember he beat the hell out of a 6 year old black kid but he’s a RAT and gets easy with it.
Except, of course, his entire family is political. . . there will be another Moran running for the seat, almost certainly. ..
If Moran was alive and living in NYC in 1863 he would have been lynching adult Blacks and setting fire to Black Orphanages.
There are more Democrat resignations coming. Most Democrats know the devastating politico wreck that they will undergo come November, 2014. The smart ones know it’s time to get out before being embarassed by massive losses in the Mid-Term elections. The only things that can alter their fate are, the Republican dummies screw this up or, brooming Obama/Biden out of office right now, by resignation or impeachment!!! End of story!!!
Conyers can’t retire until his wife gets out of jail and gets back on somebody’s payroll. Dingell will die in office and his old lady will run for his seat and probably win.
Serious alcoholic too if the stories about him barely being able to stumble his way home from Murphys are true.
But Alexandria loves him. I once got kicked out of the Irish store in the “Irish Walk” by Pat Troys for speaking ill of him. Saw him walk by on King St and made a comment to my wife (not too loud, but definitely enough to be heard by others) about how amazed I was that he’d managed to pry himself off his barstool at Murphys in a condition where he could actually walk, then wondered whether he was on his way to beat up a kid or his ex-wife.
Another politicians quitting to go home to spend more time with his money.
Hooray! This antisemitic child beater has been an embarassment to Virginia and Congress. The libs in Alexandria / Arlington / Fairfax County kept re-electing him no matter what shenanigans he committed.
Oh, he's an idiot all right.
Give him a break on his antisemitism. He comes from that thankfully now rare, old school segment of Catholicism that still blames the Jews for killing the Baby Jesus.
I mean, it’s clear that his entire life has been lived with a massive inferiority complex to the Kennedys. Poor guy ...
(is a /sarc tag really needed for the above??? ;-). )
