McAuliffe's win only happened because an Obama bundler provided money to the Libertarian candidate, DNC out spent the RNC ~$34 million to $14 million and it was still a razor thin victory. Dems/libs originally stated that McAuliffe would win in a landslide. No comments about that from MSM....

spin, spin, spin!

you still lost an election you should have won easily. terry mcauliffe is an appalling man who is despised by democrats and republicans alike. had you nominated a rational human being instead of an insane teabagger who was more interested in banning blowjobs than creating actual jobs, you would have won.

but, no - just as you did in missouri and indiana last year and in nevada and delaware before (and, hell, the presidential contest last year), you lost a seat you should have easily won because your party is too extreme.

take a lesson from christie's easy victory in democratic new jersey. if you are to become a national party once again, you will have to return to the center.

C'mon, admit it...you couldn't even spell "Obama bundler" before you heard the right-wing talking point 2 days ago. Quit being a parrot and think for yourself for a change.

Christie ain't no moderate. He just seems to be one because the right wing is so goddamn far right and the Left is pretty much non-existent.

This. Guns, schmuns.

When one is given a choice between a guy who wants universal background checks and limitations on magazine size and a guy who thinks "sodomy" should be a felony, the latter will always appear more batshiat crazy to anyone who isn't similarly insane.

Come. On. We can disagree about firearms, but blowjobs?

Money is speech.  You guys fought for it, now you need to own it.  The Koch bros would not be pleased to hear you disparaging the idea that unlimited anonymous campaign money is somehow un-American.  As a fascist post whore, you really should be jumping for joy that the assertion money correlates to votes has been affirmed.

As a personal aside, you're doing really badly at this.  Fark used to enjoy a much higher caliber of paid corporate troll.  If you want your shill money, you'll need to choose a different tack in future threads.

The point I was trying to make regarding the extremely close election in Virginia was that McAuliffe was supposed to crush Cuccinelli. With the DNC outspending the RNC by $20 million dollars, Bill & Hillary campaigning for him and President Obama campaigning for him....he barely won....against a guy no Republican cared for.

If anything, the razor thin win is a reflection on the poor performance of Obama and fellow Democrats.
