remember he voted YES on that health care bill they rammed through at Christmas, billions and billions of dollars and no one reads it or debates it, they could have taken their time and done it right, especially with something so massive, but "just get it passed and we'll work it out later" ain't in our best interest and ain't doing your job right.
You don't do your job right, you gotta find another one. See you later Mr. Bishop
Don't say your goodbye's too soon !!

You know what we have her is a case of the MAJORITY speaking. It may not be a large majority, but it is the majority. It's also true that Bishop did not carry quite a few counties in the District but that has never stopped him in the past from serving those constituents as well. I think it also gives him a good idea where to go to improve his appeal and image. It's hard for some of us (the MAJORITY) to believe people would be more interested in the harsh and often times corrupted message of rank and file Conservatives than they would in the message of Democracy and equality. I absolutely do believe the prejudice of the "Old South" is still alive and well in the form of modern day Southern Republicans; maybe not all of them but certainly the ones who run the political machine.

Congratulations Sanford Bishop and I hope it's easier the next election. You've always been a servant of your district and don't deserve auch hatred from the minority.

Bishop serves himself. Prejustice is alive and well in the south, a black person will not vote for a white candidate if they are running against a black candidate, its so obvious and sad really.

You know Travis, if everything was fair then we'd have Saints running for office and any one elected would be as good as the other. We wouldn't have political parties because every candidate would do the right thing and every decision would yield a positive result for every voter... but unfortunately it isn't like that.

I'm white, near retirement age, and grew up in Columbus. I don't live there now, but was there through the late 50's, 60's, and 70's. I agree, African Americans mostly won't vote for a white candidate if there is a black candidate in the race... but... most white voters won't vote for an African American if there's a white person running. There's a small but growing number of us that make a distinct effort to judge the candidate by his character rather than the color of his skin. Since we agree on this aspect, I'm sure you are as fair minded as I am and don't judge the result of this election by the race of the candidates. There are a lot of Republicans and Tea Party Conservatives who do just that, but we all know how fundamentally immoral that attitude is.
It's a pleasure to know there are others who don't take race into account when viewing the outcome of the election. Thank you for being so fair minded. Besides, regardles of anything else, a Majority is a Majority regardless of how it's formed. If either of us doesn't like being in the minority at any point in time we do have the option of moving to a place where the demographics suit us...

I don't hate, I seem to remember hate was ok for Bush but thats the hypocrites right.
You do know with the 2010 census the districts will be redrawn. You do know who supervises this process, our new Governor, Nathan Deal. This is the first time since reconstruction that the entire state government of Georgia is republican.
The lines will be drawn to favor the republicans for the first time in Georgia including District 2.
Don't believe me, check it out for yourself.

Oh no, I'm not accusing you of hatred. The term is used rhetorically and generically to apply to those Republicans and Conservatives who do hate... Democrats, African Americans, Hispanics, Jews, Orientals, Intellectuals, non-Aryans and anyone else who is "not like them".
You're right too, the districts will probably be redrawn before the next election (unless Nathan Deal goes to jail, and maybe even then). It's the only way (the way I see it) for Republicans to actually have a majority in some areas. If they "segregate" (there's that word again) the non-Aryans in areas surrounded by the "Aryan Brotherhood" (you know, that term really does fit) then they can keep them in line and dilute their right to vote.
And I absolutely do believe what you said... I've done the research on that.
You know though, if Republicans don't produce for the people (including the non-Aryans) in the next couple of years the pendulum will swing the other way. Even with districts being redrawn, the real majority is still Democratic, is now, always has been, and always will be... and there's nothing the Aryans can do about that short of the "final solution" which didn't work in 1939 in Germany and won't work now.

The election is over and done with and we are stuck with Sanford Bishop for another 4 LONG years. He is definitely in support of everything that Obama wants to shove down our throats such as the health care. The reason Bishop won was because of the votes in Columbus and Albany. He does NOTHING for the people in the rural areas of the district. He should just be the representative of Columbus and Albany since he only does things for these 2 cities.

Of course he did bring 1.5 million in earmark money to Cairo Ga in 2009 and a little over 4 million to Thomasville, and almost 1 million to Camilla Ga, and over 6 million to Valdosta, and a little over 2 million to Moultrie... but I'm sure what you say is right when you say he does NOTHING for the rural areas of the state. Look at your highways, sewage treatment plants, public buildings, traffic cameras, and a hundred other things that local municipalities want (not NEED, but want) and you'll see the things the Congressman's office brings to the entire congressional district, not just Albany and Columbus. The rest of you who don't know when you're well off just need to THANK Albany and Columbus for having enough voters to re-elect Bishop. The Republican challenger did not have a clue how to do what Bishop does for his constituency. I know this will probably bring some rebutal, but do try to stay factual. We all know every candidate has negatives and I acknowledge tht for Bishop also, butthere's a lot more good than bad so if all you're going to do is the bad then all you leave for me to respond with is more of the good.

I am so humbled by your honest post.I happen to be among the few in America who diligently search and VOTE based on issues,platforms, etc...AND NOT COLOR.We just went through a "POLITICAL FIRESTORM" in Brooks County over our school board.2 black females won over their 2 white incumbents in July...whites claimed VOTER FRAU(GBI called in...canvassing BLACK community with their badges and guns).Then switched and ran in November. Now, the Secretary of State says that both blacks won...There is some redeeming HOPE for America. Those of us who truly love this place must CLING to that. By the way, the winning black candidate won by 9-NINE votes...

What you say here is absolutely true. Congressman Bishop is the 3rd most prolific obtaner of earmark money in Georgia (and isn't even in the top 25 nationwide). The two who obtain the MOST MONEY for their constituents are a Republican Congressman from North Georgia (I don't remember his name but could look it up if you doubt what I say)... he obtained arount $68 million for his district.. the biggest obtainer of earmark money was Saxby Chambliss who got a total of $91 million. These figures were for 2009 by the way when Republicans were calling for "budget austerity" and "reducing the deficit".
We are taxing ourselves to death and mortgaging our children and grandchildren, but until people are in office who will stop doing that we stay on that road... and Republicans ARE NOT the one who will do that for us... just wait and watch. You know John Boehner, the apparent new Houe Majority leader has retracted his pledge to reduce or cut earmarks... that's one of the things he ran on, but as soon as the votes were counted he (in his words) took it (off the table". Now just how much good do you think the new Republican congress is going to be if they can't even keep their campaign promises for 30 days ?

I was speaking of the hatred that democrats have for people who want to achieve and be successful, they hate them. The republicans don't see color, religion etc, the democrats divide people up into groups. As I said if you disagree with a democrat you are stupid and even a threat. I see it as a road to communism and am so surprised at how many welcome communism. The democrats would have us all working for the government that would give them total power in everything. Then they could determine what we need and provide it for us. It does level the playing field, everyone is exactly the same, except of course those leaders.
I think that Georgia has a history of support for the democrat party because it the past they maintained the segregation and institutional racism of the south. The southern democrats equaled racism and segregation in Georgia and things aren't really much different now. As racism has declined in Georgia so has the influence and popularity of the democrat party. But the democrats cannot stand to see it dissolve and try and paint the republicans who see all as equal as the racists, the hypocrisy is appalling! They play upon the fears of people who think that if the government does not take care of them they are lost which to me is the biggest lie perpetrated by the democrat party.
As the democrats try and move further to the left, embracing tired and dead ideas of Marx, Lenin, Mao, Americans are left wondering, Where will it all end?, and most know that at worst a socialist nation and at even worst a communist one.
The democrats/ progressives/communists are being exposed for what they really are more each day and America is revolted by what they see.
The democrats final solution is the same as Joseph Stalin's.
But here in America, at least for now, we can vote the democrats out, and not a moment too soon.
