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.

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.

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.

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.

Administration close to finalizing rule

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

Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

PHOENIX -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed Wednesday a controversial bill that would have allowed businesses to deny services to gays and others based on religious beliefs. The veto of Senate Bill 1062 will likely be met with praise from Arizona´s business community, which called on Brewer to veto it citing potential damage to Arizona´s economy. The Arizona Chamber of Commerce said Monday the bill could hurt tourism, make it hard to recruit new businesses and open the door to lawsuits against businesses.

The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
