    "... the race has become something far more unsettling to Democrats: a referendum on the president and his party that is highlighting the surprisingly raw emotions of the electorate.

    National Democrats, alarmed by a poll that showed the contest far closer than anticipated, are privately fretting that even a close outcome in a working-class swath of Brooklyn and Queens may foreshadow broader troubles for the party in 2012. "

    "The Siena College poll, conducted early this month, showed Mr. Weprin with an advantage of 6 percentage points, within the margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 points.

    Few predict a Republican upset: registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by three to one in the district. But it is not uniformly liberal — many Orthodox Jews live there, for example — and even those closest to Mr. Weprin grudgingly describe the contest as uncomfortably competitive."

    Weprin's prostitutes need to come forward and cement his characterization as a true Democrat.

    BO is a product of the Keynesian-Great Society, which is rapidly approaching relic, non-functioning status. The time might be nigh to change horses in the middle of the stream. Wrong man at the wrong time.

  5. Its not to late for a democratic primary challenger but time is running out :(
     
  6. No surprise here. Turns out, Obama is Bush with a darker complexion.
