So far here is what we know. The Republicans are winning in the midwest. Rand Paul projected a winner in Kentucky, Dan Coates in Indiana and Rob Portman in Ohio. That’s a hold and a plus 2 for Republicans.

    62 seats in the house 6 senate, some still up in the air.   All no thanks to CT or MA.  In these states DDDDDD must stand for dummie.  I am very happy Grayson is gone, Rubio is in and Allen West. too bad we can't have a Rubio-west or West – Rubio ticket in 2012.  Even in state races in Ma. House, Senate,Auditor . AG, etc. all DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

    After living in MA, I didn't think there could be a worse Democrat state … SURPRISE!  I'm disgusted with the voters of CT, and if I could find a job in almost ANY red state I'd be gone today.  I'm taking NO responsibility for this, so I'm going to vent and say: WHAT THE HE** IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?  If I hear ONE person complain about their taxes or healthcare costs going up, they're going to NEED their healthcare insurance.  As if it isn't bad enough that we're basically sending back all of the RATS to Washington (DICK is just Chris Dodd but an even bigger liar), now the unions have won, and we're going to have Dan Malloy as governor. Hmmm … wonder if you'll all figure it out as any slight movement toward a growth in jobs that may occur elsewhere doesn't happen here in CT?  Probably not … last night proved it.  This is a union state; if you're not in a union, you're going to spend the rest of your working life paying for people to work for 20 years and retire at 90% of their salary. The only sensible thing to do is to MOVE.

    Sammy22, Now that the state of Connecticut is a living, breathing "Back to the Future Part II", what do we do when the casinos go broke?

    If at the end of the day they somehow "find" the votes to put Malloy in office, I'm gone. I can't comprehend how the Dems could win so big in Ct after everything that's happened, all the lies and moeny pissed away. But whatever, they "photocopied" ballots that I'm sure will contain the votes needed to turn this state over to the Dems once and for all. Like I said, Malloy wins and I'm gone.

    Got quite a chuckle when I logged onto WTIC homepage this morning. Under "More Top Stories" it reads:

    "Lembo Comptroller, Nappier Treasurer

    Himes Takes 4th District

    Courtney Back In

    Delauro Re-elected

    Escaped Prisoner Back In Custody

    Larson Wins Re-election in First District"

    (emphasis mine)

    Yeah…that seems about right!! 🙂

    Made the bitter pill of being a conservative in this unbelievably liberal state a little more tolerable before my morning coffee. But at least I don't live in Massachusettes…Barney Frank…seriously?!?! Apparently that guy can do no wrong!!

    I am so disappointed in the voters in this state! Most of CT just doesn't get it! It ain't easy being RED. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    I share the general sense of disgust that others have posted here. I am especially angry at having to be "represented" (not) by that dope Chris Murphy for two more years. He represents Honduras and San Francisco more than he represents Western Connecticut. At least his lap (Nancy Pelosi) is gone, so he'll have to be someone else's lapdog for a change. It will be curious to see whose commands he obeys next.

     

    At least national voters seem to have more sense. Now I know how Red Sox fans feel.

     

    But I am proud of my immediate neighbors (New Milford, Bridgewater, Brookfield) who appear to have voted with at least a grain of common sense.

    Lynn says:

    OkieJim, As a Red Sox fan, this is worse. The Red Sox win the the World Series sometimes. In CT, RED wins are not very common.

  9. LaurieR
    LaurieR says:

    OkieJim … I couldn't agree more about Chris Murphy!  Assuming that those of us who reside in the 5th District hold most of the same opinions as the majority of Americans (even though we're too stupid to save ourselves!), he has NEVER represented us or our opinions — voting for the incredibly flawed healthcare bill (probably so he could see what was in it), supporting cap and trade, and he's also a big pro-amnesty guy.  Not much has been said about that, but on the NumbersUSA website he has earned a D-.  I simply do not get it … and if Malloy gets in — watch our property taxes go sky high as well as taxes we haven't even thought of yet!  Oh, well — I lived in MA for 20 years, I guess I can stand CT for another year and a half, just long enough so I don't have to pay back my first-time homebuyer credit!  And I only took that because I figured I've paid through the nose for it just by having lived in Massachusetts and Connecticut … frankly, I don't like the idea of being beholden to the government for one penny.

    Connecticut must want to be an entitlement state.  We are on the track of a economic wasteland, dominated by Unions and Welfare Recipients with no intent on lifting CT residents up only to bring those that work hard down and take their money.  Just an observation, the States that continued to elect the Democratic agenda are some of the worst economically choked states – California, Nevada as examples.  And to think MA re-elected Bwarney Frank, one who is instrumental in creating this mess.  The moral of the story = stupid is what stupid does.  The good news is the red tidal wave moved across the country to take back the house and rid us of Nancy Pelosi.   This is only the first step, the Senate gained key races and Republican Governors needed for the next step, 2012 – one termer!  Connecticut is a lost cause soon to be the likes of California, I've heard more than once that CT Residents will more want to pay taxes to a State that suits their needs not a State that needs them.

    The Conservatives/Tea Party did squat in CT. Not a peep yet for the non-shakers and non-movers who pontificate on this blog and the associated talk-radio host/supporters thereof. Really, they cannot take credit for what other states did for the aforementioned Conservatives/Tea Party candidates.

    Dimsdale says:

    Well aren't you the wet blanket!  Just because CT is riddled with carefully tended state employee unions and liberals, and whose dominance of the legislature has chased out the majority of conservatives doesn't mean that "the non-shakers and non-movers who pontificate on this blog and the associated talk-radio host/supporters" didn't contribute or do their job.  I think the governor's race is evidence of that.

     

    It is hard to build a foundation when you are short of bricks and have hacks like Bysiewicz beating what you build with a corrupt sledgehammer…

    True-to-form. Looking to pin the blame on someone else. Ms. McMahon only lost by 62,282 votes. Up to the day before elections, this blog was cheering on how she was closing the gap.

    <span style="font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana; font-size: 12px; color: #333333; line-height: 20px;">Huh?</span>

    <span style="font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana; font-size: 12px; color: #333333; line-height: 20px;">Other than the fact you won't find any author here who suggested McMahon would win, I would think that going from 55/35 in July to 54/44 on election day is the definition of "closing the gap" prior to the election.</span>

    <span style="font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana; font-size: 12px; color: #333333; line-height: 20px;">We're conservatives opinion writers, hence we generally would like to see someone who is more conservative representing the state, just like the liberal opinion writers would rather see liberals.</span>

    <span style="font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana; color: #333333; font-size: small;"><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 20px;">The polls moving for all of the races – if accurate – certain do show TEA Party members "did something" in Connecticut, to suggest otherwise is just ridiculous.</span></span>

    <span style="font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana; color: #333333; font-size: small;"><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 20px;">And by the way, less than half of our site visitors came from Connecticut during the last 30 days. Connecticut is certainly our primary audience, but we're pretty far-reaching.</span></span>

    "True to form".  Thanks!  I take that as the compliment I am sure it was meant to be!  😉

     

    P.S.  I know the real meaning of "getting swiftboated"!

    sammy22 says:

    Steve, you are correct: Ms. McMahon closed the gap from 55/35 to 55/44. You should also re-read Jim's post of Nov. 1. I obviously misinterpreted his message.

    • Steve M
      Steve M says:

      @sammy22 – I don't have to go back and look at Jim's post. I'm certain he said he was optimistic she had a chance of winning, not that she would win. I was optimistic as well, but probably more realistic than Jim. In Connecticut, I was not surprised at all about the results, although the Foley/Malloy result was closer than I expected. I thought Foley would win. [I guess he still could…] Republicans did pick up more seats than I expected in the state legislature. I thought it would remain closer to status quo. (No research at all, just a gut feeling.)

    Well, now the City of Bridgeport has "found" another bag of uncounted ballots.  Surprise, surprise.

     

    How come this only happens in towns, cities and states run by Democrats?

  18. sammy22
    sammy22 says:

    Where I voted, I filled the "little ovals" w/ black ink, I took the completed ballot to the "machine", I was directed to insert the ballot into the reader that swallowed the ballot. I assume that the "machine" recorded the votes and added them to those already fed into the same "machine". How do ballots get "uncounted" if they are fed into the "machine"?
