I also can't believe any West Virginian (or any woman) would vote for the party that wants to abolish Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Insurance; or the also hard fought-for minimum wage, Public Education, Union Rights (VERY dear to WV;) etc.
Or who sides with the abusive coal companies, who regardless of the regulations they ignore and thus kill miners, do and WILL continue to substitute raping the beautiful mountains in order to do their mining with much FEWER jobs.
Only the EPA could stop them - if we actually made them do their job and funded that regulation..(and Manchin fights FOR the companies who killed miners in the past, and by greedy neglect of safety, even continue to kill them today. Suing the EPA in favor of the companies that abused miners for decades is WRONG - and they certainly shouldn't have his help in the Senate!)

The answer I and the wife are left with, is - Mountain Party.
Jesse is even for the Public Option, the only way the ACA (Health Care) Bill can work to actually CUT PRICES IN HALF and control the protection racket that is for-profit health insurance. Perfect. He's even for doing away with the derivatives market that caused the recession on Wall Street, and for STOPPING the offshoring of American Jobs to China.

Voted For Mike Oliverio

Almost nothing is worse than a Republican or a Blue Dog Dem.(Unfortunately for senator Manchin is the bluest of the corporatist blue.)

The rest, I vote Dem to keep out the teabagging cuckoos.

"Nancy Pelosi" is the ONLY effective person in congress - the only one who actually can and does do her job.
And that's why the coporatist Republicans hate her so much that they keep using her name as a LIE to the voters.

Voted for Mike Oliverio. He will actually be a independent voice for West Virginia. McKinley will just toe the Republican leadership's line that will continue the reckless agenda from the Bush era.

DCH.....I couldn't agree more! bush may not have been the most eloquent speaker, but he was head and shou8lders over the terrible president that we're suffering through right now! I wasn't a big fan of John McCain, but he would have been alot better than anything the Democrats had to offer. I can't wait for this coming Wednesday....hopefully the day when Obama is neutered!

By the way...I don't expect the Republican Party to "do" anything for me! I'm quite happy to take care of myself and my family. I'm just content to have the government - at all levels - off my back and out of my life!

I am terrified by the thought of the psycho right regaining power in this country. Almost every person in our area of WV should be a democrat, but instead of looking out for their own self interests they vote for the greatest propagandists since Nazi Germany. Republicans want to lower the federal minimum wage. They want tax breaks to continue for companies that ship jobs overseas. They want to end Social Security. Are those not bad ideas?
Repubs and tea-baggers say that we need to cut the budget of the government. Yet they say we cannot cut the budget for the military, our vets, or our seniors, but that is 7-% of the budget. Anyone capable of logic can see the nuts on the right are full of it.
And to any tea-baggers out there, I hear all the complaining of personal freedoms, and smaller government that you have. My question then is why not have less laws and less police?
You do realize that your rant makes you sound like an insane person, don't you?

Mollohan was a crook who didn't listen to the people who elected him.
Oliverio ran a dishonest campaign.

Both paid the price for their deeds.

How could the Republican Party have "screwed us over and over again" in West Virginia's First District? There hasn't been a Republican in the First District seat since the 1960's. Alan Mollohan enriched himself in public office and voted against the will of the people of this district and West Virginia on a number of recent key votes. Now he is gone, Oliverio has been beaten and Mr. McKinley will have an opportunity to serve West Virginia. I, for one, am happy about it.

I don't expect him to get us out at all while moving in the wrong direction. Spending money that the country doesn't have won't fix things. Creating another entitlement program won't fix things.

Besides, Obama wasn't running for West Virginia First District Congressman.
