Allen West Still Won’t Concede

Rep. Allen “Communists Are Everywhere” West and his followers are continuing to scream about “voter fraud” as West refuses to concede defeat over “irregularities” in Florida’s St. Lucie Country. 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 ...

World Net Daily: Dems Stole The Election

“Am I suggesting that the recent presidential election was stolen through voter fraud and manipulation? Without a doubt. Do I have evidence? Yes, I have plenty of anecdotal evidence to show that it was committed by one side in the election in various ways. And I am convinced that at least 5 percent of the Democratic vote can be attributed ...

Quote Of The Day – Maureen Dowd

“Romney and Tea Party loonies dismissed half the country as chattel and moochers who did not belong in their ‘traditional’ America. But the more they insulted the president with birther cracks, the more they tried to force chastity belts on women, and the more they made Hispanics, blacks and gays feel like the help, the more these groups burned to ...

Bill O’Reilly Has The Sadz

“It’s not a traditional America anymore. And there are 50 percent of the voting public who want STUFF. They want THINGS. And who is going to give them things? President Obama. He knows it and he ran on it. Whereby 20 years ago, President Obama would have been roundly defeated by an establishment candidate like Mitt Romney. The voters, many ...

Ann Coulter Has The Sadz

“If Mitt Romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. We have more takers than makers and it’s over. There is no hope.  Mitt Romney was the president we needed right now, and I think it is so sad that we are going to be deprived of his brain power, of his skills in turning ...

Quote Of The Day – Charles Blow

“No, you cannot have your country back. America is moving forward. That’s the message voters sent the Republican Party and its Tea Party wing Tuesday night when they re-elected President Obama and strengthened the Democrats’ control of the Senate.

Puerto Rico Votes For Statehood

One the bigger stories that I missed on Tuesday: A slim majority of Puerto Ricans voted Tuesday to approve a nonbinding referendum that would make the island the 51st U.S. state. The measure requires final approval from Congress, so it means little for Puerto Rico right now. Still, nearly 54 percent of Puerto Ricans voted for a change in the ...
