Ok, so you're telling us that bobby rush has upstanding character??? He represents the black panther party, is a known rascist, with a criminal record, involving drugs and weapons charges... He most represents this district because of that. To say that rush's character exceeds that of Peloquin, is a very ignorant comment. However doesn't surprise me, because of the area we are in. The black population far exceeds the white population, and therefore will never vote a white person in because they are rascist, plain and simple. They care only about themselves, not about this country. It's just a fact that we have to get used to is all.

The president was re-elected because he knows how to talk and to appeal to the right people. Blacks love him because he is well.. Black, and gives them no incentive to work. He give billions in welfare. The Latinos love him because he is giving them a free ride into this country and free healthcare and social security. Look at the debt. 4 years ago when it was 4 trillion, he said he would cut it in half... It is not around 16 trillion I think. He is slowly dismantling this country. In 4 years, people are going to be wondering what happened to America. Now the liberals will have no one to blame but themselves. This country is BROKE and he just keeps spending and spending. It's sickening!

A bigot is bigot whether in Alabama or Illinois. You, in an earlier time, might have been one those who skulked around in white robes at night hanging Black's and Hispanics. Your kind, thank God are slowly fading away from this reality. Your children welcome diversity because they were born in a time of enlightenment. And they are the one's who along with educated women, Hispanics and Blacks and Gays..flipped off the GOP and helped re-elect the President. Your days are over...the nights of cross burning and screaming your racist hatred through out the nation are numbered.

Translation: "WAAAAAAAAAAH .. we got our asses handed to us!"

Romney = GONE

Only four of the 16 Senate candidates endorsed by the Tea Party Express won yesterday.

Peloquin = GONE!

Joe Walsh = GONE!

LMAO ... Isn't that wonderful?

But wait .. it gets BETTER ... repukes have been shown the door all over the country!

Allen West = GONE!

Todd Akin = GONE!

Richard Mourdock = GONE!

Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson = GONE!

Scott Brown = GONE!

Oh ... and Sherrod Brown = reelected and Alan Grayson = re-hired!

How did that policy of obstruction and zero-compromise work out for you guys again? And making Obama a one-term president your number 1 priority?

Now I hear there's a nasty civil war going on now on the Repuke side of the fence too.

Tell me ... what happened to those "skewed" polls? I thought Romney was "surging"?

I hear Dick Morris was on Hannity and he said there was a "zilch, zone, zip nada," chance of Obama getting reelected ... is that true?

Did Fox news LIE TO YOU AGAIN?

Any answers for us? You guys had so much to say a little over 24 hours ago ... how about you "man up" and answer!

Can you tell I'm LOVIN' this?

. Don and his staff of volunteers ran a good campaign. The vote from the city - straigght Democrat- did him in. Tha lack of repuiblican party support did him in.

You are hardly qualified to make reference to anyone's character let alone on someone who has committed his life to our city.

At least he made the effort and didn't spent time posting assinine comments like yours.

The reason Peloquin lost is in the second sentence of your reply. It is the pure fact that they made him a sacrificial lamb to a hard core seat that he had no hope or business of trying to win. I would have taken that bet to the bank, the GOP did.

Why is it that so many Dems resort to namecalling and put-downs. Grow up and learn some respect for your neighbors. Post something that actually goes toward the GOOD of our neighborhood.
