Allen West and Mia Love lose too

In Florida…

Freshman Republican Rep. Allen West (Fla.) is locked in a tight race with Democrat Patrick Murphy as the two competed in one of the nastiest races in the nation, according to MSNBC election projections.

West, despite out-raising Murphy 5-to-1, trailed by less than 3,000 with 100 percent of Florida’s 18th District reporting, according to MSNBC.
West, a Tea Party favorite, has not conceded, and it is unclear whether there will be a recount. Florida law requires a recount if the margin is 0.5 percent or less of votes cast.

And in Utah…

Like a magician freeing himself from a box filling with water, Rep. Jim Matheson escaped with his political life once again Tuesday to earn a seventh term in Congress.

The Democratic congressman claimed victory shortly after midnight in a hard-fought victory over Republican Mia Love after trailing in the polls going into Election Day. In so doing, he becomes the first representative from Utah’s new 4th Congressional District.

    I got to say I am stunned, because it wasnt that Obama was losing, it was by how much..

    What does it take for a bad President like Obama to lose? Lose another 5 Million Jobs and increase Debt another 5 Trillion?

    I have to give it to the Dems, they understand humans are basically greedy and selfish and thats exactly what they set out to appeal to.

    So the only way I can make sense of “keep on Presidentin Obama” is that it boils down to just how much free shit one is prepared to dish out. There is only one problem with that however, eventually the money runs out.

    Hold on to tight America, its going to be one hell of a down hill ride.

    WTF?! West loses, Alan Grayson is baaack, Wassermen Schultz wins, Jesse Jackson Jr. wins … Biden announces he will run for president and and the top bozo, despite all the destruction he has wrought, wins?!?!?!

    Dear God … what happened to my country? It died yesterday … dug its own grave, jumped in and pulled the dirt on top.

    On the bright side, we are still a Republic … banana, but still a Republic.

    Voting against them because they’re black. I see how it is. Shameless bastards.

    I am extremely disappointed to see these two lose. I hope we have not seen or heard the last of them.

    West is demanding a recount. “Murphy has 160,328 votes, or 50.4 percent, to West’s 157,872 votes and 49.6 percent, according to the Associated Press, which has still not officially declared a winner.”
