Virginia Race

So we all know by now that Gillespie lost the Virginia Gubernatorial race.  I had very high hopes, though it seemed impossible, considering the awful hate shown toward Trump every second of every day.  I figured the association of Trump hate with most Republican candidates would overcome Gillespie, but I’m not so sure now.

I believe the fact that it was SO CLOSE says a lot for our side.  Very few pundits agree with me.  In a Blue state, I believe a 3 point spread, while a president’s unpopular in that state, isn’t bad at all.

And yes…Trump’s blaming Gillespie for “working hard but not embracing ME and what I STAND FOR”………”Please, God…GET HIM TO STOP!

THOUGHTS?  Do you think it’s a good sign that Gillespie did as well as he did? Do you think the pundits are right and this is an indication of future elections based on Trump-hate?  Or, as I think, Trump hate isn’t quite as popular as what we hear and see?  (Or what I see and hear, because I don’t just listen to or read Conservative news)?

THIS MORNING, the new governor, whose campaign approved the hideous ad of Gillespie’s car running down immigrant children, then ran from it when it was seen to be so offensive and untrue, is apparently doubling down on Republican dislike for diversity!  

Here’s how dumb Tim Kaine is…”The president chose to be thousands of miles away from America tonight…”   Ya, Tim, this whole trip was planned around the Virginia election…just in case Gillespie lost.

    The swamp’s inhabitants are migrating unfortunately. Rather the creatures are duplicating and needing habitation. They did their work in Maryland. Now a corner of PA finds a streak of them moving up route 83. Nasty blue…

    Ed, right…so to have almost FIFTY PERCENT go Republican is pretty amazing.

    But, I know I’m in the minority on this…both Reps and Dems on news, etc., are SURE this is a BIG WIN FOR DEMOCRATS. Well, it IS, let’s face it….If you get an 89 on a test in school, it’s close but not an A….BUT…you sure did well!

    Yeah, its a big win for the left, but thats gonna happen, too. Nothing goes 100% in politics. Is this going to continue in future elections? Hopefully not. What Ed said is probably why this happened.

    Nawthun Virginny is irretrievably locked into the flow of fed’ral dollars from D.C., hence pro-big gummint. Another case of Dem enclaves vetoing the bulk of the state.

    Nu Joisey is just a lost case.

    What’s really tell-tale here is DeBlasio’s winning another term, a Marxist dabbler with no game plan other than self-aggrandizement.

    All of that, plus Kalipornia Snafu, sounds remarkably like a death knell for individual liberty, the Bill of Rights, and MAGA to me.

    The left has convinced itself that Allahu Akhbar is an Arabic expression for “This bombing/killing/destruction is in no way connected with Islam.”

    Similarly, they’ve appropriated Trump’s MAGA and take it to mean “Morons Are Governing Again.”

    ALL such fabulous comments! I’m glad to hear from you all ….THANK YOU!

    CONVERSATION AT CVS AN HOUR AGO AT THE CHECK OUT:

    ME: “Did you charge me the 10 cents for the bag like it says on the sign here? I was just going to put what I bought in my purse.”

    HIM: “NO….and don’t believe everything you read. THAT’S HOW TRUMP WON!”

    ME: boiling inside wondering what to say in response…

    MAN BEHIND ME IN LINE: “Ya, and it’s exactly one year …who could have thought this would have happened?”

    ME (gathering my stuff and making a parting shot): “Oh, Yes, Socialism would have been such a great idea.”

    Does nobody want to answer my question about whether it’s as terrible as everybody’s suggesting that Gillespie lost? I still think a vote THAT close in that state says more FOR Trump than against him.
    But, man, I WISH Trump hadn’t said what he did in response…..oy

    Mustang..”Politics in America today..” Add having to wade through all the ‘cine-muck’ that sticks to your shoes with that unmistakeable squishing that tells you you’re stuck in the swamp.

    As far as Gillespie losing….I think Virgina has had only one Repub governor since 1888 or something so what’s the big deal? New Jersey, and I should know, is as stupid as they come. Imagine paying $14,000 per year in property taxes on a 250K home to get your garbage picked up 2 times per week? Then electing another tax and spend clown to further increase their taxes so that New Jerkey can become a “sanctuary state”? Thus assuring more tax hikes to feed the little brown people who need to be fed, clothed and taken care of in perpetuity as well as the chain migration of 80% of south of the border to their shores. Know why most guys inJersey have mustaches? They want to look like their moms. We need to put an entire wall around the NE states. All of them, as the original13 colonies have defiled the constitution, the law and the Bill of Rights and should have their statehood revoked.

    Sistah Brazile is a schizoid, a Frankie Pentangeli with a full head of hair. She makes allegations, then retracts them. Accusations, then refutes them. Declarations, then denies them. Expositions, then exposes them.

    I’ve never watched Carlson because when he was on Fox he was such a smug, condescending knowitall. But, he ain’t eggzackly stupid.

    It might be as entertaining, or as disgusting depending on your politics, to watch him do an autopsy on her body of bull___ as watching Mongo dismantle a roast chicken.

    MS. Z..It’s neither unprecedented nor unusual…one look at the Virginia map shows its clearly very red yet…it’s the larger population centers again that steamroll the regular folks. So…this is the same ole same ole…and the new Governor is not a quack, leftist nut job like his predecessor. It’s the Jersey guy that’s the wild card nut job…and hopefully, he gives Jersey full measure right up their cans. He and DeBlabbero can carve up the spoils. The Mafia used to own Jersey….now it’s corrupt pols who operate the same way. And Jersey had an opportunity to show just how “diverse” they really are by electing a woman. They’re all talk and no action…plus Jersey is one of the most racist states in the country.

    2. The Gubernatorial Loss Isn’t Unprecedented. Chris Donovan of ABC News points out that losing both the Virginia and New Jersey governor’s mansions isn’t unprecedented for parties in off-year elections:

    Trump is the FIFTH President in a row to have his party lose BOTH the VA & NJ gubernatorial races in his first year in office.
    Winners:
    2017: Dems Northam/Murphy
    2009: GOPers McDonnell/Christie
    2001: Dems Warner/McGreevey
    1993: GOPers Allen/Whitman
    1989: Dems Wilder/Florio

    I keep hearing about those “high taxed states” getting screwed by various Federal tax reduction proposals which would, apparently, eliminate some deductions, currently taken commensurate with such high local taxes. QUESTION: Since folks in those states love taxation so much (how else did they get there?) why complain? It seems, to me, that such high deductions result in them paying less of their “fair share” of the Federal obligation than those in states with reasonable state, local , etc. tax rates.

    – Damn she is Good ! She is putting out a book purported to be slamming the DNC and clinton, et al but it will boil down to be in support of clinton and the DNC et al.
    – “clinton is a great friend of hers” – If We know how evil the beast is – Donna must even Moreso know how evil this expulsion from satan’s butthole is.
    – she believe’s in democrats, been a life long democrat and hse must know how democrats have been raping america and especially the ‘african-american’ community.
    Lots more but why bother.
