Only 1.1 million jobs, have to agree that is a lousy number. But lets look at president nobama, unemployment rate higher than when he was elected, most of the jobs created under nobama, government and part time.

Can anyone believe the President of the United States lied to us - on purpose!- about something as important and personal as our health care?

Just because he wants us to have what he thinks we should have?

Shocking. Absolutely shocking.

It's even worse than "read my lips"...GHW Bush's undoing.

At least on occasion you can be honest. You admit most of the jobs created in the last 5 years are either government or part time.

State Sen. Ralph Northam (D-Norfolk) defeated Republican candidate E.W. Jackson in the race for Virginia Lieutenant governor Tuesday, according to projections from NBC News and the AP.

Jackson, a Baptist minister, won a surprise victory at the Virginia Republican convention in May. His long history of anti-gay remarks dominated his campaign. He also said that non-Christians were following a "false religion" and said that government programs had done more harm to African-Americans than slavery.

Jackson's comments caused trouble for Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Cuccinelli, who had to repeatedly distance himself from his remarks.

"I am just not going to defend my running mates’ statements at every turn," Cuccinelli said in an interview with the Washington Post. "They’ve got to explain those themselves. Part of this process is just letting Virginia voters get comfortable with us, on an individual basis, personally."

Northam ran an otherwise quiet campaign in comparison to Jackson's eye-popping statements.

Oooops, I forgot Cuccinelli was running against that leftist phag in Virginia. Looks like a good chance for a red sweep in all the important races tonight. That's the first nail in baruck's political coffin; just wait till the midterms...

Where are all the leftist phags saying "the tea party has the lowest ratings of anyone", as a tea party candidate probably wins in a blue state.....??:-)

Choke on the EASY win duhm-bo-rats.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) was elected for a second term Tuesday, beating Democrat Barbara Buono in the general election race.

NBC News and the Associated Press called the race for Christie shortly after polls closed in the Garden State.

Polls leading up to Tuesday's election showed the Republican governor with a 20-point lead over his Democratic rival.

McAuliffe wins!

t-p got potted!!!

And Virginian KNOW who caused the government shut down!

"... Cuccinelli had sought to prove that a tea party-backed conservative could win the governorship of a swing-voting state. He brought big-name supporters to the state, too, including Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal - all potential presidential contenders.

Virginia Democrats hoped they were on their way to holding all statewide-elected offices for the first time since 1970 and turning back of the conservatism that has dominated for the past four years under one-term limited Gov. Bob McDonnell. The state's two U.S. senators already are Democrats. Aside from McAuliffe, Democrats also won the lieutenant governorship. The race for the attorney general's office was neck and neck.

(AP) New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie waves to workers at Oasis Pastry Shop during a campaign stop in...
Full Image
The governor's race had turned McAuliffe's way last month partly because of the partial government shutdown. Exit polls conducted for The Associated Press and the television networks found that about a third of Virginia voters said they were personally impacted by the shutdown, and those who were broke for McAuliffe by nearly 20 points.

"Over the next four years most Democrats and Republicans want to make Virginia a model of pragmatic leadership," the Democrat said. "This is only possible if Virginia is the model for bipartisan cooperation."..."
