    LOL
    Just kidding.

    YES, Democrat Ron Barber has won the special election to serve out Gabby Giffords term - but NO it doesn't mean that President Obama will (or won't) win in November.

    This is a sweet victory for Democrats - just like the Walker recall result last week was a win for the Repubs - but NEITHER race has ANYTHING to do with the presidential election (or any other elections).

    Democrats are definitely enjoying this win - but we're not going go batshit crazy over it like the Repubs did last week after the WI result.

    Ha ha !!! That's great news !!! and it would be nice if this did foretell Obama's Win this Fall, but no it doesn't as you said.

    Lets hope Obama does win or we're headed for more of what Bush pushed us into with his policies. With no help from the Party of no for anything like job creation. Ten years of transfering wealth to the rich still hasn't gotten through their thick heads that giving to the rich does not create jobs, Demand creates jobs, and the middle class having money to spend is what creates Demand, not policies and legislation transfering wealth to the rich.

    Oh but they'll say, government needs to spend less, then where the hell were they while bush was spending away surpluses for unecessary wars, new agencies, Medicare part D and etc. etc. and more etc. that got us into this terrible mess.?

    Yup.
    The Repubs have things ass backwards.

    Helping the rich doesn't create jobs or a strong economy.
    Helping the middle class does.
    A thriving middle class of consumers spending their $$$$$$ on goods and services helps companies to grow and profit and hire more workers.

    If you give tax cuts to rich people they just put that extra $$$$$$ in the bank and sit on it.

    And YES it is great news.
    We're definitely celebrating here in AZ.

    I think Congresswoman Giffords will win this seat again in a couple of years. Or better yet, Clinton/Giffords 2016.

    Everything time I see Congresswoman Giffords I am blown away.

    Same here.
    I had the pleasure of meeting her in person and she blew me away.

    And with or without Gabby - Hillary has an excellent chance of winning AZ in 2016.

    Hillary won't likely be running in 2016 or any other year. The poor woman wants to retire.

    LOL
    Curiousjock makes another prediction!

    Given his track record I'd say it's a dead certainty that she will be running in 2016.

    Barber won even while using language that the wealthy need to pay their fair share? Good for him.

    The best part of this story is that Democrat Barber won the seat in a district that is strongly Republican. Giffords barely won her seat. Thanks to some redistricting Barber's district will lean Democrat, making his chance of winning in November a sure bet.

    CrankyMcBadass saidRepublicans, sensing a chance to capture the seat, sought to make the special election a referendum on President Barack Obama and his handling of the economy.


    Ho hum. Both sides play that card.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Let's see, can we update the list of KKKuriousJerkAZ's greatest hits:

    1. Jon Huntsman has a very good chance of being the GOP nominee.
    2. Rick Santorum will be out of the race by January.
    3. Hillary is not a viable 2016 candidate.

    No wonder nobody takes this guy seriously.
