Congressman-elect Bill Owens was sworn in at noon today, broke 4 campaign promises before going home for dinner

WOW!!! we all know politicans break campaign promises, but this might be a new record

Owens indicated in a press release released shortly afterwards that he was now in favor of the the “Affordable Healthcare for America Act” bill in direct contrast to his earlier position during the election campaign.

According to Politico.com, Mr. Owens assured voters that he felt the public option had no place in the health care reform bill. Contrary to that position, Mr. Owens now indicates that he intends to vote in favor of the bill even though it now contains a public option.

The mixed-up mess that was the 23rd Congressional District Special Election was a close race between Democrat Bill Owens and Conservative Doug Hoffman. Many feel that it was unlikely Mr. Owens would have won those crucial few thousand votes if the voting public was aware of his intent with regard to the Health Care bill. The majority of residents in this district do not support the Health Reform bill as it is now written and many feel like they’ve become victims of a fraud perpetrated by their chosen candidate.

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.
