All leftists are whining about how voter turnout was down this year, and that’s why they got their asses kicked in the mid-term election. Problem for leftists is that facts are a stubborn thing. Voter turnout as actually up over 1010 levels in key states like North Carolina, Montana, Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Colorado, Iowa and New Hampshire. In key governors races in states like Florida, Wisconsin and Maine, voter turnout was also higher than 2010 levels. But let’s now confuse the poor progressive liberals with actual facts. Check out this tweet from a whiny ABC:

Hey ABC and lefties, not all states had important elections. Also, propositions in each’s states ballots drove turnout, and not every state that anything important worth voting for. The key states had higher voter turnout over 2010 and that’s all that matters. Sorry ABC.
Take for instance California. Voter turnout was down 9.2% from 2010 levels. They had no senator up for re-election and everyone in the state knew Moonbeam Jerry Brown was going to win easily. What’s the point of voting in California?

Democrats are all giddy that Mitch McConnell with run again for the Senate in Kentucky, and their far left progressive liberal darling Alison Lundergan Grimes won her primary. But Democrats have a bigger problem before their wet dream about winning the Senate in Kentucky and Georgia. Democrat voter turnout continues to plummet over 2010 levels (the last non-presidential election primary year.) In 2010, the ‘big tea party year’, Democrats got a total of 521,659 votes between their various Senate candidates. The winner Jack Conway faced Rand Paul and got crushed in the general election. Republicans in 2010 in Kentucky only got 352,275 between their 2010 Senate candidates.

This year with about 98% of the vote counted, the Democrats only got around 400,000 total votes. A nice drop of 121,000 or so primary votes of 2010. Maybe leftists and the media can blame the weather like they did for the crappy economy or something.
Wow, I’m actually impressed. Politicians doing something to actually protect their citizens from unconstitutional laws. Indiana state Senate bill SB0400 aims to block enforcement of the unconstitutional NDAA bill signed into law by Obama and created by both power hungry Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. House of Representative. Let this be a lesson, and a blue print for other strong conservative states to not only enforcement of the NDAA.
Aid in enforcing unconstitutional laws. Prohibits specified state actors in Indiana from aiding certain United States agencies or other state actors in the investigation, prosecution, or detention of a person lawfully in Indiana under a state or federal law that the state actor knows or reasonably should know violates the due process clause of the United States Constitution or the Due Course of Law Clause of the Indiana Constitution, and prohibits state actors from investigating, prosecuting, or detaining a person lawfully in Indiana under a state or federal law that the state actor knows or reasonably should know violates the due process clause of the United States Constitution or the Due Course of Law Clause of the Indiana Constitution. Makes a knowing or intentional violation a Class A misdemeanor.
One state Obama won in 2008 has already flipped back to Mitt Romney. Romney is currently winning over 60% of the vote. In Kentucky, another early call, Romney is winning at the time of this post 70% to 29%. As expected, hippie land Vermont went to Obama.
How fitting. Charlie Crist may claim to have been a Republican once, but he really was nothing but a Democrat running as a Republican in a conservative state like Florida so he could get elected. Crist showed his true colors during the 2010 mid term elections when Marco Rubio crushed him in the Republican primary. Crist so desperate to win a Senate seat, he decided to run as an independent. Crist once again got crushed by Marco Rubio. Crist was so bitter he finished out his term as governor and became an ambulance chaser. Now, two years later Crist is still as bitter as ever. He endorsed Obama over the past weekend, and has been awarded with a speaking slot at the DNC Convention. Snort. That should really bring in the big crowds. Crist is so insignificant in the state of Florida that Jeb Bush is far more popular than him, Yes, a Bushie. I guess Crist is the Democrat’s answer to the Republicans getting Artur Davis to speak at their convention.
Arlen Specter is whining in a new book that Obama ditched him after he was the 60th vote to pass ObamaCARE. According to The Hill, Specter is also whining that Harry Reid not uphold his promise to grant him seniority accrued over 28 years of service in the Senate as a Republican. If these stories are true, I really have to give some credit to both Obama and dingy Harry Reid. Good for them for stabbing this back stabber in the back.
Missouri Primary Poll – Santorum 45 percent, Romney 34 percent, Ron Paul 13 percent (Gingrich didn’t qualify for the ballot)
Next Tuesday’s Missouri primary is little more than a “beauty contest.” It’s a non-binding primary that doesn’t even have Newt Gingrich on the ballot because he failed to qualify. On March 17th, Missouri holds a caucus that will determine how the delegates will be allocated among the candidates. But for this upcoming non-binding primary, Newsmax reports that Rick Santorum leads Mitt Romney 45% to 34%. Ron Paul gets 13%.
On fiscal and domestic issues? Hell yea I’d rather have Ron Paul as president over Newt Gingrich. In fact, I’d prefer Ron Paul over probably everyone else in the current GOP field. On foreign policy, not so much. I can’t stand Gingrich either, but I can’t muster as much dislike for Gingrich as Ann Coulter has ginned up. First she creamed herself over RINO Chris Christie. Then she went to flip flopper Mitt Romney. She is so against Newt Gingrich being the GOP nominee and president that she declared on Red Eye last night that she’d prefer Ron Paul to be president over Newt Gingrich.
The 112th Congress is finally set as Randy Altschuler concedes to progressive liberal Tim Bishop in NY1
Progressive liberal Tim Bishop managed to win New York’s 1st congressional district, as Randy Altschuler has conceded. This was the last seat that needed to be decided for the 112th Congress. The final total gives Republicans a historic 63 seat gain. The final total for the House in the 112th Congress will be 242 Republicans and only 193 Democrat Marxists. This race was rated a toss up be Real Clear Politics. Altschuler released this statement:
If only RINO John McCain was joining Russ Feingold on the unemployment line this coming January. Poor John is going to miss his Wisconsin Obama clone Russ Feingold. Sniff. While we still wait for the whole tax issue to get resolved, poor Johnny bid a heartfelt goodbye to Feingold, who was crushed by Republican Ron Johnson in the November election:
“I have to confess I think the Senate will be a much poorer place without Russ Feingold in it,” McCain said in a floor speech.
These two should get a room on New Year’s eve or something. McCain also said:
