I don't get it. Harry Reid should have been booted out. How stupid is Nevada?
Live Hard/hardware:I can respect those who do not like Harry Reid.
I voted for him, but that doesn't mean I disrepect Republicans. What gets me
upset is when you say things like "naive" and "stupid" without all of the facts.
Sharon Angle actually suggested there is a 2nd Amendment remedy in
the event she lost the election. She refused to answer for it---whether to
explain her answer or admit a slip of the tongue. In fact, she refused to answer
any questions, ever. She exposed herself as ignorant of policy on more than one
occasion, and her pastor (whom Angle did not counter) said that Harry Reid as a
Mormon, was part of cult. Angle also told rape victims to make their "lemons
into lemonade."A candidate who proposes an armed uprising if they
lose? Who does she think she is, Aaron Burr? That's who Nevada should have
representing it in the Senate?I am proud that I voted for Reid and
that he won re-election.
Early ad barrage and big labor unions helped him win. I wonder how he is going
to pay them back with taxpayer money. Its an ugly game we are playing.
Face it, corruption helped get Reid back in, just as corruption has backed alot
of what always goes on in Washington. Just take a look at the Drudge report on
how the absentee military vote was blocked from being included in midterm polls
around the country.
Reid won. Sharon Angle ran away from reporters. Very
I'm relieved that Reid won re-election. Sharon Angle made the statements that
showed how extreme she was, Reid's campaign simply made sure people knew what
she had said. It would be nice if the Republicans would be willing
to sit down with the Democrats and actually work together. It sounds that
Bohner (not sure of spelling) won't do anything that could possibly benefit
Obama in 2012. The news reports coming out now show that several
major companies are gearing up to hiring like they haven't in the past couple of
years. It appears the president's policy is furthering the good work. We had
to stop the free fall of our economy, before we could start building it up. His
policies stopped the free fall Bush's started--yes, it took a full year, but
Bush had us heading for a depression. You don't stop one of those immediately.
It looks like having slowed the job loss, we can now start building the economy.
Harry Reid is on the same page at least, as Obama. Who know what
page Angle would have been on.
Sharron Angle talked her way into losing fair and square, Harry Reid didn't win.
Let's be clear in this discussion. Harry Reid LOST every Nevada county except
3: Clark (LasVegas) and 2 small north west counties with less than 10000
voters. Harry Reid won Nevada because Harry Reid pandered to the Labor Unions
of LasVegas. I thought labor unions were supposed to protect jobs
yet LasVegas has nearly 15% unemployment. Could the gaming industry be the next
bailout target. Harry is certainly beholding to them.All I hope is
that Harry becomes the MINORITY leader in 2012.
Reid won in Washoe county (Reno) with 70,000+ votes, Mineral county (middle of
no where) 855 votes and Clark county (Vegas) 250,000+ votes. Sounds like he did
a pretty good job of playing the numbers game. He also got the votes of the
minorities because Ms. Angle chose to not acknowledge them . After
talking to many friends and family in Vegas, who consider themselves moderate
republicans, I found that they all voted for Reid because Ms. Angles view and
policies were too extreme. Oh and they aren't part of any Labor Unions.Sounds like Ms. Angle lost on a few levels.
Sharon Angle along with her past / present pastor also said some pretty
disparaging remarks about the LDS faith. Not too smart when you're trying to
win an election in a state where nearly 10 percent of the population is Mormon.
I wonder why Reid's son lost his bid to be the governor. Wouldn't the same
machine that helped Reid have helped his son Rory?
Reid won because he was the better choice. And, given his competion the choice
should have been obvious. The Republicans spent heavily to defeat Senator Reid.
Harry Reid is not the bad guy here, and he is obviously no loser. But the bad
news is that our demcratic electoral process increasingly manipulated by money.
If there is any corruption to be discovered in all this, that is where you will
Angle and her pastor did say some rotten things about the LDS faith. She also
said to rape victims, turn lemons into lemonade, which meant make the most of it
and help other victims of rape, don't let it destroy you. Angle made some
serious mistakes, however I still don't think Reid should have won. What won him
the election was Angle's stupidity, as well as UNIONS, Walmart & Kmart gift
cards and busing in the voters by the unions. Many are right, what has to be
done in return for the unions by Reid is a major thing? Nothing is "Won" yet, we
still have a 2 month battle in Washington with the "Lame Duck" Congress! Don't
put anything past the Progressives & Unions. Obama is controlled by these types,
he is their perfect model. Get ready for two more years of gridlock! It will all
be passed on the Republicans, so they better be CRYSTAL CLEAR on their stance on
EVERYTHING! The Media and Obama will twist it all around, just watch! Be Warned
with the victory, "We Have Not Yet Begun To Fight!" Obama is SLICK!!! Watch the
Spin Master at work! Be Warned!
Angle is more stable and informed than Palin and O'Donnell, but she dehumanized
minorities and wants government to have extreme control over women's private
lives. The right wing of the Tea Party destroyed the Republicans' chance to take
the Senate. But look who we have as Speaker of the House now--the Honorable John
Boehner. It is so wholesome and good to have family values back representin' in
Reid turned out Hispanic voters even more than they came out to vote in 2008. He
outdid Obama. That's pretty impressive and an assist has to go to Angle for that
for her racist attack ads.
actually he was rated as very unpopular, just as nancy pelosi was. i imagine the
reason he won was the unions, the gaming industry. guess he's good for them. as
for me, it's too bad he got re-elected. there isn't anything to cheer about with
bro. harry as far as i'm concerned.
Reid got elected because news reports had the casino union bosses delivering the
minions to the polls and telling the how to vote.Angle is not dream
candidate but Reid has already delivered one proven nightmare piece of
legislation after another. There was not a SINGLE piece of legislation this guy
passed that garnered a 50% approval rating by the public.I find it
comical the comments about Republican NEEDING/should coooperate with
democrats.Why?You lefties constantly accuse them of
being the party of "NO".Well, the party of no just won the House by
a HISTORIC landslide and closed the gap in the Senate.If you can
make gains like that being the party of NO then I guess they heard the will of
the people didn't they.The entire republican campaign across the
country was open and upfront. Stop democrats, stop obama, stop the current
marxist agenda, stop the lousy business environment, stop, stop, stop!!!And with that message they won in historic fashion.No, I
think they will continue responding to the will of citizens insteading
cooperating with a liberal agenda that has been resoundingly rejected.
I figured it out, the incumbent usually wins.
The Republicans ran a defective and deficient candidate in Nevada. Thankfully
the citizens of Nevada recognized her for what she was, and voted against her.
If Goldman Sachs sends a gold-plated limo to my house so that I can go vote,
does that break any law? If not, then what's wrong with a labor union lending
its support? And since Nevadans supported Reid in spite of Nevada's
unemployment, I think that says something about what they thought of Angle -
that they didn't trust her.
Angle was not the best candidate and the "Tea Party" shot themselves in the foot
by electing her in the primaries. Any of the other candidates probably would
have easily beaten Reid. "15 percent" unemployment and the nation's highest
forclosure rate don't speak well for Reid.
