Virginia governors are limited to one term. McAuliffe will be doing the perp walk before then.

I was surprised the final vote was so close, but the anti Obamacare wave gave Cuccinelli a chance. Exit polls showed 53% of voters oppose the ACA (Washington Post). The ultimate political insider, McAuliffe was up double digits as recently as two weeks ago and Obama went out of his NOT to mention heath care on his campaign trip for McAuliffe.

The influx of govt teat suckers in the northern Virginia counties around DC overwhelmingly supported the Dem not wanting ANY threat to their wealth stream of taxpayer $!!

Those counties are have become some of the wealthiest zip codes in the nation and it showed as those earning over $100,000 voted for the Dem 49%-43%!! Cucinelli won the middle class ($50K-$99K) 51%-43% (NY Times)!!!

So the Dem won the elitist DC types and the Republican won the middle class!!

Interesting!!!

BWAA HAAA.... TEAHADISTS heads are exploding today as they stare at the death of their movement in the face. You have to admire their conviction as the grasp at straws and try to put a shine on total defeat.

How about this. The Republican Party cut funding to Cuccinelli on October 1 and he ran out of money.

And STILL, 51% of the voters voted against Macaliff! That's a bad sign!

Where Cuccinelli went wrong, he should have campaigned agaist the (so-called) libertarian candidate that was funded by the dems to siphone votes away Cuccinelli. If he had, he would have exposed the fraudulant candidate and captured at least half of the votes that went to the fraud.

Bill De Blasio is an admitted Communist Party member. Yes this is news. New Yorkers are voting for more taxes, more corruption and more "free" stuff they think.

In spite of voter discontent and polls indicating the nation heading in the wrong direction..the voting sheeple once again demonstrate how to continue going in the wrong direction.

The sheeple, throwing caution to the wind, have lost their way and cannot discern what is really important in life.

The hole keeps getting deeper for America.

The biggest game-changer, though, is Bill de Blasio, the mayor-elect of New York City, who campaigned against the corporatist legacy of Michael Bloomberg -- promising to raise taxes on the wealthy and use the revenues for pre-school and after-school programs for the children of New York’s burdened middle class and poor. Those who dismiss his victory as an aberration confined to New York are overlooking three big new things: First, the new demographic reality of America gives every swing state at least one large city whose inhabitants resemble those of New York. Second, he won notwithstanding New York’s position as the epicenter of big business and Wall Street, whose money couldn’t stop him. Third, Americans are catching on to the scourge of the nation’s raging inequality, and its baleful consequences for our economy and democracy. - Robert Reich

Pundits who are already describing the victories of Terry McAuliffe in Virginia and Chris Christie in New Jersey as a “return to the center” of American politics are confusing the “center” with big business and Wall Street. A few decades ago McAuliffe would be viewed as a right-wing Democrat and Christie as a right-wing Republican; both garnered their major support from corporate America, and both will reliably govern as fiscal conservatives who won’t raise taxes on the wealthy. They look moderate only by contrast with the Tea Partiers to their extreme right. (cont).

Goose- Yes, Approx 200 generals were allowed to retire. Trouble is- many will be hired to fill other positions in the gov.The U.S. has 900+ generals. Most have created an empire that is a road block to progress. Compare them to the generals/admirals of 1941.

Bloomberg was a Democrat before 2001! I doubt that a "real" republican would have been worried about the size of a coke cup.....

New Yorkers chose Bill de Blasio as mayor, electing the first Democrat since 1989.

Wonderwhy the tea party refuses to realize they have splintered their beloved GOP?

If there is a positive and glimmer of hope for America, McAuliffe had a 12-14 point advantage and won by much less. Had the Obama Care rollout been a month sooner or the election one week later this election would have gone the other direction.

That heavily-funded VA Democrat just barely squeaking into office at 48% with an assist from a fake, Dem-funded "liberatarian" against a Conservative, who received what amounts to zero assistance from the RINO GOP, is great news for Conservatives and the Tea Party. Cuccinelli did far better than I expected, with so much money stacked against him. Lots of Dems and RINOs wiping their sweaty brows. Lots of voter's remorse coming soon to VA.

Detroit elected it first WHITE mayor in over 40 years in a non-partisan race.

Guess even an area that voted 99% for Obama in 2012 needs a rich white guy to save the day.

You know what they say "Once you elect White, you can't go back to Blight!"

BBBWHAHAHAHAAH!
