West Palm Beach, Fla. - Firebrand Republican Rep. Allen West was defeated by Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy, according to the state´s vote count Saturday, but the incumbent won´t concede. The state issued complete but unofficial results showing Murphy with a lead of 2,442 votes, or 50.4 percent. That´s beyond the half-percent margin needed to trigger an automatic recount. A handful of overseas and military ballots remain outstanding, but under state law the decision for a recount is based on Saturday´s count. Murphy declared victory early Wednesday morning and has held

Basically, who cares about the overseas and military ballots? This is so obvious. We need Allen West.

Mr. West. you have my undying support.

You are a man of great integrity and honor.

Unfortunately, those are no longer requisites for leadership.

What the world needs now ...

... is snake oil and coddling.

With a side of swag and some benefits to go.

Maybe in another century ...

"military ballots remain outstanding"

Those officers who were derelict in their duty to ensure voting should become (in)famous.

Allen West is my congressman; he has every right to question the ballot count, since there are many egregious problems with the machines in Florida as well as the way ballots are handled. If Rep. West sees that the ballots have been fairly counted, he will concede with grace. Given the fact the machines have eaten ballots in some precincts, he deserves a respectful chance to check it out.

THe local CBS affiliate is reporting a voter turnout of 141% (not a typo) of the registered voters in St. Lucie County which is (FTA)´the only one of the three" the opponent won. Darn straight I´d want to see the votes add up properly.

Post 6, I agree. The RNC elites undermined Allen West. Apparently the RNC is also to blame for the presidential debates which set up GOP candidates for failure. Bias liberal "journalists" have.moderated every debate since 1996. Town hall formats are a travesty. Enough is enough. The RNC must be fumigated before we have any chance to win a national election.

Romney crushed Obama in the debates. My sad sense from talking to some people in Chicago, and maybe the sample size is too small, is that many who did not like Obama just would not vote for a Mormon. It saddens me deeply. I honestly feel in my bones that Romney would have been one if the great Presidents of the United States of America. Instead, our descent quickens, and the world darkens.

Not voting for Mitt cuz he´s a Mormon is an assinine attitude. Whatever you want to say about Mormonism and some strange beliefs, every one I´ve ever known is a model citizen, has liberty in their DNA, is clean cut, polite, generous and hard working.

Gee, we wouldn´t want any of that in the White House, now would we?

Rumblehog - you are correct. I told my wife this summer that if you are not paying income taxes, you should not have a say in who spends your money. That would clean out all of those on the dole who do not help fund this country, including those on social security who do not pay taxes any longer. No dog in the race. Then you don´t get to pick who makes the rules.

The republicans in NY State approved a redistricting that would have flushed Ann Marie Burkle down the toilet, but a brave NYS lady judge threw out that betrayal, and a better redistricting was created.
Even at that, though, Ann Marie appears to have lost to charlie rangel´s boy, dan maffei. But it was relatively close.
If the republican party gets its act together, there could be a huge resurgence of republicans in the House and Senate.
That is, if the republican candidates stop saying stupid stuff about abortion.
Just answer the question about such matters by saying the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on the matter. Man, a 10 year old would be wise enough to do that.

#17, you should meet some of my Mormon acquaintances here in PHX. They will bend over backwards for their Mormon friends because to do otherwise would be a sin in their eyes and every ward in the state would know about it, they are that clannish. They will also be nice if they think they can convert you but otherwise, screw you. If you ever looked at some of the parallels between Mormons and Muslims, they are very similar. They expect the wives to obey their husbands in all things. I have worked with some of them. They are not happy women. Of course having 6-10 kids each doesn´t help either.

As for Col. West, keep on fighting. Hooah!

Col. West was kicked out of the military for having the stones to do what was necessary for the lives of his troops. That fighting spirit, that willingness to fight to the finish, clearly has not abated in his time as a civilian.

Does he need money to fight this fight? Send every dime the RNC is asking for straight to West.

St. Lucie county is to recount votes next week. Personally I think Palm Beach county screwed up their recounts too, and the supervisor was getting very testy with West´s attorney. We were so disappointed when West chose to run in 18 and not 22 again but guess he had his reasons. I do hope he comes out of this on top. His opponent is a jerk. Go Allen go.

Poster #26, it looks like that to me, too. By the way, how many is "a handful"? How can a winner be declared without military votes counted? It´s as if government is only going through the motions with the military vote. Could their votes put it in under 1/2 percent needed for a recount?

Florida was still ´counting´ votes as of Nov. 10th.

It has been a state ripe for voter fraud since Sore/Loserman.

Now the fraud has been perfected.

The scanners were not working, the ballots were incorrect, and the list of egregious voter abuses goes on and on.

Florida has become Illinois. Add Ohio to that list of stolen states.

Sen. John McCain is the least popular senator in the country of those surveyed by Public Policy Polling, with low marks from members of his own party, independents and Democrats. Just 30 percent of Arizona voters approve of the job the Republican senator is doing, while 54 percent disapprove, according to a PPP release Thursday. That is the worst of any senator’s polling in the nation that PPP has found.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will step down this year, he said in an interview with the New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin in the magazine’s Feb. 17 edition. In a feature article, Mr. Holder said he plans on staying in his position “well into” the year. Last November, Mr. Holder, the first black attorney general, told CBS News he didn’t have “any plans” to step down. Mr. Holder has made voting rights the test case of his tenure, the New Yorker reported. He has been a vocal critic of the Supreme Court case that invalidated key parts of the Voting Rights

Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., who has taken a tough stance against some of China’s trade practices, will be nominated by President Barack Obama to be the next ambassador to Beijing, according to Senate aides. Baucus, who has announced his intention to retire from the Senate at the end of next year, currently chairs the powerful Senate Finance Committee, which oversees tax and trade policy. He was first elected to the Senate in 1978. Obama’s choice of the 72-year-old Baucus to be ambassador to China must be confirmed by the Senate.

Administration close to finalizing rule
to give wind farms a pass on killing eagles
for decades
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: charliecoconut- 12/6/2013 5:41:40 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is moving toward finalizing a rule that would give alternative energy farms a pass for killing bald and golden eagles for decades, just weeks after it took legal action for the first time against a company for doing so. The rule by the Interior Department extends the length of the permits that allow farms to unintentionally kill the eagles without penalty from five to 30 years, according to department records. The rule authorizes the “non-purposeful” killing of eagles, but also will require farms to implement certain guidelines to help with eagle conservation.

President Barack Obama, already embroiled in a battle over a government shutdown, jumped into another dispute on Saturday - a long-running fight over the name of the Washington Redskins NFL team. Obama said that if he owned the team, he would consider changing the name, which American Indians and others have long pilloried as racist. "I´ve got to say if I were the owner of the team and I knew that the name of my team, even if they´ve had a storied history, that was offending a sizeable group of people, I´d think about changing it," Obama said

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
