What started with Scott Brown and Chris Christie, blossomed into the TEA Party and the GOP take over of the House of Representatives, and now this.
NEW YORK – Republicans have scored an upset victory in a New York City House race that became a referendum on President Barack Obama's economic policies.The 9th is a Blue Collar neighborhood. It is considered the home of Archie Bunker. Yet since 1923 it has voted Democrat. Until today. Today this Jewish-Italian neighborhood made a bold statement about Barack Hussein Obama and his policies both foreign and domestic.
Retired media executive and political novice Bob Turner defeated Democratic state Assemblyman David Weprin (WEHP'-rihn) in a special election Tuesday to succeed Rep. Anthony Weiner, a seven-term Democrat who resigned in June after a sex texting scandal.
The heavily Democratic district spanning parts of Queens and Brooklyn had never sent a Republican to the House. But frustration with the continued weak national economy gave Republicans the edge.
Turner has vowed to bring business practicality to Washington and push back on spending and taxes.
If the 9th goes, will the state of New York be next? We can now state very plainly that the beginning of Obama's reign has ended and his removal from office will now begin.
