    Rush talked a lot about this election today. The Dim candidate was resorting to the old claim that Republications wanted to take Social Security away from old people.

    I guess with respect to the results today an old surfing term applies to the Blue Wave and that term is "ankle buster."

    Does that term mean the same as "the blue Wave is only ankle deep"?

    My mother in-law, living in Florida told me that they had to vote for Algore because Bush was going to take away their social security. As I remember it, Bush didn't take away SS.

    Democrats haven't given up the lie because there are still enough stupid people that believe the lie.

    But, but, but, LAGC said this was going to be a Blue Wave and the Dims were going to win everything.....

    It had to be Russian meddling. Nothing else could have prevented the Dim from getting in.

    Funny you should say that, because they are in fact blaming the Russians.

    A ruby red Ohio district that Trump and Romney won by double-digit margins. Only barely held on to this year, by the slimmest of margins, and only then after outspending the Dems 3-to-1.

    Yeah, I'd be a little worried about November if I were the GOP.

    Yeah, just looking at the totals, and the GOP candidate had more votes than the total of the next two highest candidates...while the DEM candidate came in next to last.

    Are we talking about the same race?

    With 100% of precincts reporting, the special election in Ohio's 12th district is too close to call.

    Troy Balderson (R) has 50.2 percent of the vote with 100% of precincts in, compared to 49.3 percent for Danny O'Connor (D). There are still 3,300 provisional ballots and some more absentee ballots outstanding.

    U.S. House, Ohio, District 12

    Troy Balderson (R) ...... 101,574
    Danny O'Connor (D) .... 99,820
    Joe Manchik (G) ........... 1,127
    Looks like that Green Party candidate may have played spoiler. If he hadn't run and those votes went to the Dem, the Dem may have won.

    (We'll have to see after those 3300 remaining provisional and absentee ballots get counted...)

    But, the Republican won.....right? I don't give a damn if the totals were lower. It only takes 1 more vote than the other guy to be a winner. Every vote counts.

    I'm not worried about anything in Nov. The Dims are in the middle of a Blue Ebb Tide. It's only going to get worse as they continue to become more unhinged over the next few months.

    Sorry, LAGC, your side is losing ground.....

    And, if he hadn't run, and votes went to the Repubs, the margin would have been a little greater.

    You're rationalizing all this, but it doesn't change the results.

    It's very difficult to find solid ground when you build your hopes on, "what if's."

    If wishes were horses then beggars would ride.

    The dems will have a harder time cheating this time around:

    Judge ends consent decree limiting RNC 'ballot security' activities

    By JOSH GERSTEIN
    01/09/2018 11:50 AM EST

    After more than three decades, Republicans are free of a federal court consent decree that sharply limited the Republican National Committee's ability to challenge voters' qualifications and target the kind of fraud President Donald Trump has alleged affected the 2016 presidential race.
    Telling the truth is treason in an empire of lies.

    We all know LAGC, the only way the dems/communist party wins is through illegal votes. You simply should be ashamed that your side of the coin is win at any cost. Requiring voters to present ID is an impediment to illegal voting. You don't mind though disenfranchising legitimate votes for the cause do you?

    I wouldn't declare victory for the Republican just yet. There are still many ballots to find in out of the way places, mail bags full of absentee ballots that were previously unknown. A 1,000 vote deficit is nothing to Democrats whose soul goal is to be in power.

    There's a whole graveyard of Dimocrat votes that haven't been counted yet.

    You can live as a Republican, but when you're dead, you become a Dimocrat.

    And EVERY TIME the "missing" ballots are counted they are usually 90% Dimocrat, or just enough to sway the election.
