Fearmongering, Dirty Tricks Win In NY Race

From a crowing New York Times:

Millionaire Democrat and pretend Tea Party supporter, Jack Davis.

Democrat Wins G.O.P. Seat; Rebuke Seen to Medicare Plan

By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ
May 24, 2011

Democrats scored an upset in one of New York’s most conservative Congressional districts on Tuesday, dealing a blow to the national Republican Party in a race that largely turned on the party’s plan to overhaul Medicare.

The results set off elation among Democrats and soul-searching among Republicans, who questioned whether they should rethink their party’s commitment to the Medicare plan, which appears to have become a liability heading into the 2012 elections.

Remember all the "soul searching" that went on in the Democrat Party after their historic defeat on every level, national, state and local, in the November 2010 elections? We don’t either.

Mind you, all of this supposedly elation and soul searching is based upon one tiny election in which the Democrats employed untold sums of outside money and influence and outrageous chicanery. In fact, Jack Davis, who ran as a Tea Party candidate, ran in the last three elections for the same House seat as a Democrat. His entire campaign was geared towards attacking the Republican candidate, Jane Corwin. He went on to receive 9% of the vote. (See below.)

Without Mr. Davis’ presence the Republican candidate would have won handily, 52% to 47%. Even so, the Democrat did not even win a majority of the votes. But, of course, the news media will hail it as an historic mandate, anyway.

But the news media will be hail this as an historic mandate, anyway. And it will be held out as a lesson for what the Democrats need to do in 2012. Even though they have been running their stooges as Tea Party supporters to split the Republican vote for some time now.

Two months ago, the Democrat, Kathy Hochul, was considered an all-but-certain loser in the race against the Republican, Jane Corwin. But Ms. Hochul seized on the Republican’s embrace of the proposal from Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, to overhaul Medicare, and she never let up.

On Tuesday, she captured 47 percent of the vote to Ms. Corwin’s 43 percent, according to unofficial results. A Tea Party candidate, Jack Davis, had 9 percent.

Voters, who turned out in strikingly large numbers for a special election, said they trusted Ms. Hochul, the county clerk of Erie County, to protect Medicare

And never mind that Ms. Hochul also was very vocal in her opposition to the $500 billion dollars in cuts to Medicare that are included in Obama-Care. So why isn’t this election seen as a rejection of the ‘Democrats’ Plan’ for Medicare, as well? At least the Ryan Plan tries to save Medicare, as opposed to destroying it by stealing billions from its budget.

Still, who can blame the media and the rest of the Democrat Party for being so elated? After all, this once again proves that fearmongering — especially against senior citizens — wins! And that is what they do best.

    It is apparent that the senior citizens of NY are either uninformed, misinformed, democrats, or morons. Without changes to the medicare and social security systems as they exist today, it should be obvious to anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together that EVERYONE will be left out in the cold. In NY it would appear that until the Oblamer-care rationing kills a few thousand seniors, the uninformed will continue to believe whatever they’re told by shameless democrats. And when those seniors are killed or, as Obie says, just “given a pill” instead of the care they need because the gubamint won’t pay, I’m sure they’ll blame Bush. It’s worked for them so far.

      Call me a pessimist, but I really don’t think that the current crop of seniors care about the solvency of Social Security or Medicare. It seems to me that as long as their bennies aren’t affected, it would be just fine for them if it tanks when they are no longer in need of it.

      When the next generation of seniors start receiving bennies, their opinion changes as well. And the cycle continues until someone, not themselves, are left holding the bag. I think they are very much well aware that Social Security and Medicare are going to tank and as long as it is not on their backs, it’s just fine.

      This is where it takes political courage to do what is right above the whining of the MBM and their libtard constituancy.

    Great job New York Republican Party. You’re demonstrating about the same level of political caliber as we show over here on the Left Coast.

    This is why I personally am not listening to Republicans from the Northeast. The grassroots screamed and screamed for a national leader from the region to step up, denounce Crazy Jack, and defend Corwin and the Ryan budget. They don’t even want to defend their agenda in their own territory because in truth they don’t want to do jack crap with Medicare but expand it, and in all honesty they’re probably happy to let the MBM use this to try and box Ryan in.

    And this is the clique that wants back in the White House? El-oh-el, yeah, have fun living in that fantasyland while in reality watching your state and the others like it continue to go down the financial shitter. Meanwhile blue collar states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania are waking up en masse, and not because of any Milquetoast moderate and watered down message from Republicans.

    It’s not the Tea Party’s responsibility to perform miracles at every turn, especially in areas where we know our values aren’t as widely held and respected. We went through this with O’Donnell too, whom they joined the Liberals in torching right out of the competition, and then blamed us for lining up behind an ‘unserious’ competitor.

    SOUL SEARCHING? What will the elderly and politiians of both parties do when Medicare and the country are broke?

  4. Not so fast says:

    This is the blueprint for the 2012 Presidential Elections. Donald Trump or someone like him will run as an Independant/Tea Party fake. This will help to remove Barack Hussein Obama’s miserable record as the topic of conversation for the Presidency. While Trump/Fake Tea Party attacks Washington, the Republican Message will be drowned out and Barack Hussein Obama will stay out of the naked spotlight alone. This is the blueprint.
