Florida election results: David Jolly says Democrats should be worried
Politico ^ | 3/12/14 | By LUCY MCCALMONT

Posted on 03/12/2014 6:23:21 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Congressman-elect David Jolly on Wednesday said Democrats across the country should be worried about his victory in Florida’s 13th District in the special election.

“I think my soon-to-be colleagues on the Democratic side of the aisle are engaging in a lot of spin control today,” Jolly said Wednesday on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”

The Roll Call article from back in January that Drudge had up indicated that Alex Sink had about a 10 to 1 money advantage over Jolly, Sink had NO PRIMARY challenge, the district voted FOR Obama in 2008 and 2012, and was going to get money support from the DNC.

And she still lost.

Fail.

I like that a ‘pub with such scrutiny and a media ready to pounce didn’t say any of the stupid stuff. Maybe they’re learning.

And there will be plenty more Obamacare horror stories between now and November to add fuel to the fire.

That second one was the one I saw reported on Fox News Channel a couple of days ago.

The hubris among the Democrats and the media was growing, I am sure....

Now, they have to spin this....

I even heard in the Miami media this morning the LIBERAL announcer call it a “Florida voting debacle”, and they had some expert on saying it was a “Republican district”...without mentioning the FACT that the district, while having a Republican (long time) representative in Bill Young, ALSO voted twice for the man-child prompter reader.

Obama’s humiliation by Putin in the Ukraine over the last few weeks was worth at least 5 points at the polls

To each RINO
Make sure they’ve all been beat.

Ho, Ho!
Obama’s woes
Grow worse with each new poll

Fat lady
Sings for Dems
It’s time to pay the toll

Have a Holly, Jolly Midterm!
Just laugh when the Liberals sneer
Oh, By Golly
Have a
Holly, Jolly Midterm
This year!

The only thing Dems have to fight with is, demagoguery, hate, meanness, and racism.

It is now and always has been their only tools, which have become extremely dull to the point of uselessness.

Conservatives only need to remember the rhyme “Sticks and Stones” and not get sucked in.

This is even better victory if he is a TEA party guy

Debbie Wassername must be swilling vodka and valium as we type. Lock-stepping Dumbos kept swearing they were gonna run and win on the (gag) "glories" of Obamacare b/c "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)

THE DUMBOCRAT LOSER LIST MOUNTS: Lock-stepping Democrats Feinstein, Boxer AND Pres Obama all endorsed the San Diego Democrat mayoral latino loser Alvarez (Third World pressure groups ordered to vote illegally were no-shows).

Obamacare was touted as Democrat Valhalla. As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature healthcare plan---ultimately enacted, by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote, into the "Affordable Care Act"

QUOTING 2008 OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.” Repeated over and over again---- with his promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

Significantly, Obamba NEVER corrected lock-stepping Democrats, all reading from the same Democrat talking points, all of them repeating the same Democrat promises---over and over again.

LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE Obama And the Dems marched in lockstep.....the persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D-CALIF): “So we Democrats want people to be able to keep the health care they have. And the answer to that is choice of plans. And in the state exchange, we’re going to have lots of different plans, and people will be able to keep the health care coverage they need and they want.” (Sen. Boxer, Press Release, 2/8/11)

SEN DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D-CALI): “I listened to the president and I believed him when he said, 'if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.' I believed he was correct. I didn't realize there were all these codicils attached to it. President Obama should never have promised that people would be able to keep their health plans. I think he was done a disservice. Someone should have stopped him and said – on his staff. There's this condition and that condition."

SEN. MARY LANDRIEU (D-La): “If you like the insurance that you have, you’ll be able to keep it.” (MSNBC’s Hardball, 12/16/09)

THEN-HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI (Dim-CALIF): "We must pass the O-care bill so we can find out what’s in it."

The lock-stepping list goes on and on.

=============================================

I GET A WARM FEELING OVER THIS Bill Clinton endorsed Sink----he's still the kiss of death---sucking up for his and Hillary's squalid 2016 ambitions.

Florida is a scab that wont heal WRT Democrat's presidential ambitions---- b/c of the Gore loss to Bush over a hanging chad. The USSC was deployed due to the legal brilliance of Bush SoS James Baker---who outmaneuvered Gore's people at every turn. The Dems ploy is to count and count until they have the votes to win----the Supremes ordered the count to stop.

========================================================

I do believe Billy-Boy---paranoid over Hillary's chances--- stepped in it bigtime when he advised Obama to keep his promise---to let people keep their plans.

Now, more than ever, the electorate is focused on the blunders of Obamacare........ which preceded Hillarycare. In fact, it was 2007 Hillary Clinton who originally used the wonderfully reassuring “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

Hillary's 2007 campaign website was unearthed by America Rising. America's Rising found written on the website under "HILLARYCARE"---AKA Hillary’s American Health Choices Plan---the phrase: “if you have a plan you like, you keep it.”

VIDEO http://burstupdates.wordpress.com/2013/11/15/hillary-2007-if-you-like-your-plan-you-can-keep-it/

See a smiling Hillary (above) in 2007, saying: “You can keep the doctors you know and trust. You keep the insurance you have. If you have private insurance you like, nothing changes, you can keep that insurance.”

==========================================

MOMENTS TO REMEMBER In 2009, retiring Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry presciently warned that ObamaCare was setting up the Democrats for a huge 2010 midterms defeat (just like “HillaryCare” had led to a loss of 54 House seats in 1994).

Ego-driven Obama scoffed at such concerns. Berry said the president told him, “Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.”

END GAME Republicans went on to win 63 House seats and six Senate seats. It was the largest swing in the House since 1938. Looks like the "difference" was Obama (/snix).

Onward.....to 2014 and 2016.

This is a Democratic district

The media lies about it was held by Bill Young for 30 plus years.

I grew up across the bay in Tampa and was in High School when Bill Young was the Congressman and I now 60.

Sink won it for Governor and Obama won it twice and it always leans Democratic but loved Bill Young.

They ain't your "colleagues," Jolly. They are enemy soldiers.

Get your game face on if you want to be more than a 90-day Congressman. And lose the bimbo ... or marry her ... quietly.

Which makes me more than suspicious about the polls. It's damn near impossible (if they're doing it right) for them to be so far off the mark so why? Why are they publishing totally bogus polls?

My understanding that this was a race where the GOPe came in and did what they wanted despite being in conflict with the local candidate. This should have been a much bigger blowout, but it was a poor campaign because of the conflicts.

I think the GOPe goes out of its way to be a stumbling block when they don’t get their man.

They can’t have the TEA party look good, after all...

In NYState Carl Paladino kicked little Ricky Lazio so hard in the balls he has not been heard of since... (like 67% win in the primary0

Then they went on to lose in a GOP tidal wave year (2010)
They gave Carl only superficial support, and so we got Cuomo- the many who set the timer on the Housing Meltdown.

Not even 24 hours and he’s already talking about his “soon-to-be colleagues on the Democratic side of the aisle”! They are NOT your colleagues.

These are organisms that, given the chance, will kill the men, rape your women and sell your children into slavery.
