Ooops…Republican mayors move into N.J and Virginia

Independents who swept Barack Obama to a historic 2008 victory broke big for Republicans on Tuesday as the GOP wrested political control from Democrats in Virginia and New Jersey, a troubling sign for the president and his party heading into an important midterm election year.
Ooopppssie, I guess having all those closed door meetings are coming to bite you in the ass.

Conservative Republican Bob McDonnell’s victory in the Virginia governor’s race over Democrat R. Creigh Deeds and moderate Republican Chris Christie’s ouster of unpopular New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine was a double-barreled triumph for a party looking to rebuild after being booted from power in national elections in 2006 and 2008

Although what was sad turn of events was Maine voters rejected a state law that would allow same-sex couples to wed.

But not all is lost in the Dem world Bill Owens and John Garamendi won a seat.

Well perhaps now the White House will see the importance of practicing Bi-partisian rather than just saying it for a vote.

But the good news is most in both states, in any case, said the president was not a factor in their vote.

The bad news is White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told POLITICO President Barack Obama wasn’t even keeping an eye on the results.

Umm, really, you dont care what is happening in your party?? Surely the ego inside the white house can’t be that large? I’m pretty sure those that supported you, would like to know you are supporting them, win or lose.
