There was a blue wave....but who would have though it would come a week after the election from disqualified and rejected votes ?

What do you mean "many like you who will vote Repub almost no matter what" this is an untrue statement....e.g. I voted for JFK..so let's stop it with the pot shots ...

You also have it wrong saying I voted for McSally ...Everything I posted about her was negative..Did you not get,, that I said many Republicans did not vote for her because they viewed her the same way as I did..?

..and if were to eliminate all the Presidents who cheated on their wives we would have lost at least 3 revered and greatly admired Democrat presidents just in the last 100 years..and we are not  talking about what those "D'' presidents did before they were elected president ...These presidents cheated on their wives while they were sitting presidents ..You want to talk about slimballs.. now there's a triumvirate..

Well ., you will probably say... at least these 3 Presidents while they were doing the do with other women ..were doing it with class and dignity...sounds like some real phony characters to me..

McSally thought she could rely on general stupidity and ineptitude of the Arizona voting base, that all the morons vote straight party and she got really cocky and lazy. Sinema has been around a long long time and made some solid decisions years ago, well before Martha likely even considered this, Kyrsten was two steps ahead the whole way and handled herself with class and dignity...McSally tried to pull a slimeball Trump "abuse your opponent" approach and it didnt work. If you are indeed in the district you are (I am in district 2) then you saw the debate and the horrific approach she had, you saw the unending bashing political ads the repubs tried to run and you also saw the approach Sinema had..play to your strengths (her upbringing, the VA and how she crossed aisles many times) and it was actually nice to see a candidate win who didnt act like a total jerk like McSally/McTrump did.


I have no beef with what you posted (except the slimball comment)..and yes ,,,she did not come across well in the debate..

Usually the top of a party ticket will pull along many candidates on the under ticket due to straight voting ..in this case it did not happen ...

Last count Duecy now has received over 350,000 votes more than McSally ....so many Republicans saw her the same way as I did and did not vote for her...for many of the reasons you pointed out..

McSally lost Maricopa County,, if nothing else that doomed her ...

She lost because her approach was based on attacking and defaming and people did not like her constant attacks and a real lack of addressing issues. She had one or two points she focused on exclusively and ignored most all else. She is combative, disrespectful and came off as unpleasant. 

Sinema on the other hand is the exact opposite, she is composed, restrained, she is polished and professional. She hit some BIG issues over the last few years and that really resonated with the voters. She latched on to the VA issue well before it became mainstream and made it her mission to help improve a real mess and there are MANY retirees and vets here, she seriously scored by doing that.

Who cares if she is bisexual, she has been openly bisexual for multiple campaigns and she hasnt been a green party candidate in a very long time.

Sometimes its better to say nothing that regurgitate blog crap and I saw an article almost identical to what you are describing. McSally lost because she came off very poorly and losing in Arizona as a Republican is very very telling, she was bad enough to lose in this Repub dominated state.



You are incorrect on many points in your post ..esp.the bold highlighted ......

I don't need to rely on blogs to get facts about the candidates ..due to the fact that I reside in Arizon's 9th Congressional District and get all my info first hand..

Arizonan Republicans knew McSally changed her positions just prior to the primary's....The Democrats and Indys knew too ..that's why they called her “Martha McShifty.”..

An example of her shifting ..She removed her name from a bill she had co-sponsored,, that offered a path to citizenship for so-called “Dreamers”...a few months before the primary's...and then adopted President Trump's strong stance on illegal immigration.

That's part of the reason Gov. Ducey received 250,000 votes more than McSally who was running on the same Republican ballot.. Republican voters crossed over or didn't vote when they came to her name ..

McSally was rejected by the Republican voters in Arizona ,because she was an establishment candidate and a early 'Never Trumper' who refused to endorse Donald Trump for president in 2016 and has taken tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from prominent Never Trumpers...

No wonder she lost to a openly bisexual ..who originally entered politics as a Green Party candidate...

I don't fault President Trump for not heading Obama's warning....however,, the fact that Gen Flynn is a lifelong Democrat should have sent up a red flag...

Gen. Michael Flynn ..oh yeah..  Gen Flynn ... That's the one Obama fired for disagreeing with him deliberately downplayed al Qaeda’s strength ( al-Qaeda was "on the run.") before the run-up to the 2012 presidential election...

Far from "on the run" then or now...al-Qaeda has amassed the largest fighting force in its existence. Estimates (2018) say it may have more than 20,000 militants in Syria and Yemen alone.

It boasts affiliates across North Africa, the Levant and parts of Asia, and it remains strong around the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

Too bad President Obama didn't listen to the General..

Congratulations to Kyrsten Sinema here in Arizona; she defeated the total Trumpette McSally in a solid red state. No easy task when your opponent is one of the biggest liars in the system, and uses 20 year old statements and pictures to attack the person Sinema is TODAY. Now I will patiently wait for all the posts backing McSally's lies. 


Arizona use to be a solid red state ,,but thanks to implants from California it's slowly turning purple..


To be clear Sinema is an unapologetic Marxist...

...and McSally is not a total, as you call it ,Trumpette ..she is a at best moderate Republican in the McCain..Jeff Flake mold...she only cozied  up to Trump to survive.......in fact ,,she gushed to NBC News: “I’m a fan of Jeff Flake. He is a friend of mine..'

Republican Arizonans rejected her...as Doug Ducey, the governor in Arizona,received 250,000 more votes than Martha McSally....People crossed over or voted for someone else..They would rather have a Marxist Democrat than another Flake..

Nunes is doing exactly what the voters in his district want him to do.  

I get the point you’re trying to make, but like most of the points you try to make, it just shows how little you understand the political climate that surrounds you. 


I_Need_A_Detox was correct in his call ...

Rep. Devin Nunes(R) has won another term representing California's 22nd Congressional District....55.16 to 44.48 ... beating Andrew Janz (D)...

Nunes is a key ally of President Trump..........
