West Palm Beach, FL - Republican Rep. Allen West took the first steps in a legal challenge Wednesday in his closely watched re-election bid even as Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy declared a razor-thin victory. West, the south Florida Republican who has made headlines nationally for his fiery tea party rhetoric, filed motions asking a judge to require elections officials to impound ballots and voting machines. Separately, his campaign alleged ‘‘disturbing irregularities’’ at the polls and called for a recount. The conservative congressman refused to concede, but Murphy

Nothing like running a hit piece disguised like a news story. If we are going to use phrases like "West, the south Florida Republican who has made headlines nationally for his fiery tea party rhetoric..." why don't they use the same type in describing his opponent like, "Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy who was arrested for being drunk and disorderly and abusive to police?"

I have had 24 hours to digest what happened yesterday, and Col. West is on to something.
Too many solid Republicans were defeated and something doesn't smell right.
Grayson being re-elected is beyond the pale!
It is reasonable to explore the reasons.

I am SO sick of our side capitulating and conceding way too early. Good grief, Charlie Brown! Good for Col. West and Godspeed. It's about time we stop taking it in the shorts and fight back. They count on us rolling over and we're much too accomplished at it. Here in San Diego, the mayoral race and a House rep race are so close and there are a couple hundred thousand absentee ballots being counted.. and the pubbie mayoral candidate conceded! Doh! Luckily, the House Rep candidate, Brian Bilbray demanded a count. Yes! Fingers crossed. We must fight. Always!

Exactly #4. I sent this to a bunch of my political friends early this morning and I believe it even more right now.

A few predictions.

You will see a number of "suicides" or "accidents" in the current administration staffing. Some information has has drifted down a bit too far and the people who were unfortunate to learn that info must be erased. If I were a low level Obama staff, I'd stay out of small parks and such. Memories of Vince Foster spring to mind.

All of this ammo you guys are buying will suddenly dry up. Much like Hitler, gun 'control' will become a mantra with these clowns.

The elite in the Republican party will begin to beat the TEA Party about the head and shoulders and blame them for the losses. As I said before, Romney wasn't my first choice, Romney wasn't my second choice, and quite probably, Romney wasn't even my third choice... but for some reason, Romney was selected and I backed him... but something is odd here.

Finally, for now anyway, something doesn't smell right here. Democrat enthusiasm was low and conservatives were hyped but yet, Romney pulled in virtually the same numbers McCain did in 2008 despite him drawing huge crowds in the multiple thousands and Obama drawing tens of people. I don't know how to correlate that properly in my brain. The game has been changed and we weren't informed of the new rules. Something nasty is running in the background and we are sinking into darkness. I hope we are not repeating the "Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire."

Way to go Col. West! As the saying goes, these liberal fools are messing with the wrong Marine!

I have to agree with posters that Republicans do not usually split their votes and vote for Republican governors and Representatives, and then vote for a Barack Obama. The machines were rigged, as more than a few reported. Furthermore, the bussing of large number of "Somalis" to polling stations indicates that Obama and his minions were fixing the election in Ohio.

The 30 plus Republican governors need to take control of their elections, do away with early voting and allow only justified absentee voting, and go back to reliable paper ballots, AND require ID. Holder can go to prison for his role in Fast and Furious. Ditto for Obama and Hillary in Benghazigate.

It is time for Republicans and the House and American Conservatives to have no mercy and take no prisoners.

In 10 counties checked in Colorado, there were more voters than actual listed residents--checked numbers of voters against census numbers. Nevada is being cited for illegals. All of the swing states had malfunctioning machines. And, last by not least, Jeb Bush is being pushed as the one who should have been in to beat obama but is now being pushed for 2016, along with Rubio.

I think in every swing state there were massive shenanigans. The RATS had re elect offices in every swing state to register voters and basically have them bussed in to live there establish residency and vote early and then move on to another state and vote early also.

Ask any programmer about how easy it would be to rig voting machines to register a vote incorrectly. One I talked to said you could make every third vote go for another candidate, or if you wanted to really cover yourself you could say have all the presidential votes go for the expected winner in your state and have the votes go to the RAT senator.

Thank you, Col. West -

so disappointing when people concede too readily -

here in Riverside county, they discovered about 170,000 uncounted ballots - the votes contained within some of those ballots could affect the Congressional race here in our district (Mary Bono Mack against Raul Ruiz) - Mary had not conceded yet when these votes showed up

Lots of tough talk on this site but the time to be tough is on election day. Fewer Republicans showed up to vote for Romney than for McCain. We lost because we failed to turn out. It is hard to believe that there are more registered Republicans than Democrats when they keep trouncing us.

My son lives in West's old district and was upset that redistricting meant he could not vote for him. I admire West's tenacity but it is a losing battle. Somehow the trash keep coming out on top.

This article was my tiny ray of hope this morning. I am still staggering from the loss which I cannot understand. The crowds for RR were amazing and I knew the fraud would be great. Then I hear the the turnout was low. What? I can only conclude that millions of votes were destroyed, either by the machines or some other mechanism. I have been mystified over the years as to why our elected republicans never mention or fight the fraud. I then can only conclude that they are in on this to some degree. How did John McCain get re-elected?

I have been saying this all along...something is not right! Too much momentum in Romney's last few months, too little in Obama's. How did they fix the vote? Chicago Axelrod? They did, I really believe!! Why would well respected Rasmussen and Gallup be so wrong??? Something is indeed rotten in Denmark!! In battleground states, the "fix" was in!! Look to see which ethic group was pollster judges without any opposite party attenting alongside. ACORN in any other name is just as vile!

Remember the complaints in some states, during early voting, where electronic voting machines were used that the screen would say 0bama when Romney had been selected? Election officials blamed it on the voters by saying the touch screens were very sensitive and the voters were touching the wrong area of the screen? Reported a couple of times on election day too.

Suppose those machines, out of all the thousands tampered with, were accidentally left in a "test mode" where the fraudulent results would be displayed to assure the tamperer, I mean "technician", the fraud was properly taking place. Do this on a say, 1 in 10 to a 1 in 20 basis and there's your missing 10 million Romney votes. Wasn't some Spanish company involved in this? Aren't the machines maintained by SEIU operatives, oops I mean "technicians"?

Just supposing.

So what happens if it's found that the machines were rigged for fraud? Does the district hold a new election? Are the people who constructed the fraud indicted? Is there even an investigation?

And what about other fishy districts? Will there be any curiosity at all?

"By the way, we have to fix that," President Obama said in his acceptance speech last night. No, he wasn't referring to a specific economic, social or policy issue. He was referring to the issue of voting lines. Long, long voting lines. Across the nation yesterday, and then subsequently across Twitter and Facebook, U.S. citizens shared frustrations, photos and information about voting lines. The images of the long queues were a dime a dozen, especially when you looked at the #stayinline hashtag on Twitter. People in states like Florida and Ohio waited up to seven hours.

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.

In a strongly worded letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), the Congressional Black Caucus called for Rep.

In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Debo Adegbile´s defeat is a "travesty" and is based on unfair attacks. "The Senate’s failure to confirm Debo Adegbile to lead the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is a travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant," Obama said. "Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable." Obama said the main attack used against Adegbile -- Republicans denounced his work on behalf of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal
