» The Meaning of the Cox Replacement Election UPDATED from Local Liberty
Citing different blogsites, OC Blog has a round-up on the 48th congressional election. Mark Krikorian argues that Gilcrhist's 25% is portentious for immigration reform—killing it. Hugh Hewitt argues that it shows immigration is a marginal issue. My tak... [Read More]

75% of the voters in the 48th rejected Jim Gilchrist. Allan, you would have been a better candidate then Gilchrist.

Allan Bartlett

It really is good spin Phil, but you still haven't answered the question of how John Campbell could lose the election day vote to both Jim Gilchrist and Steve Young. What the hell is that all about? The job of the county party is to get the vote out in all elections. Scott Baugh has failed miserably. He is the captain of the ship.

48th constituent

John and Ken are a couple of blathering, self serving ego-maniacs that spent the afternoon bashing a well respected elected official because thier feelings were hurt. I say get over yourselves Jon and Ken. Your whiny rants are nothing short of loud and irritating. Campbell is no David Drier and they know that. Campbell is my congressman and I am proud to have him in DC to represent me. If J&K wish to spend their time trying to create a movement against Campbell, I say good luck. He is the Republican choice in a Republican district. This is not a swing District like Drier's. The fanatical rants of J&K have hit an all time high (or low depending on perspective). Get over yourselves or you just might loose your appeal. As for me, the radio dial has already been adjusted.

Wow Alan, have you been sippin' on the Courvoisier-KoolAid? First of all, to be technical, it was closer to 45% than 44%. Not to mention that Jim Gilchrist took THIRD PLACE. He is a LOSER. His wacky National Socialist (please, be mature, I don't mean genocide) ideas about borders are no approved by the people of the 48th or of America. A guest-worker program is the only feasible remedy to the immigration problem in the short term--until we fix our broke-ass welfare system, we can't expect a fence, wall, or anything to stop people coming here to live the American dream. Until our jobs are filled by those who should be filling them, we need, frankly, bodies to fill labor spaces.

You are in the dark, Mr. Bartlett, and your tired rhetoric is not making an impact on anything--you sound like a sore-loser democrat...and I thought JimG was a "Reagan Republican"...

Allan Bartlett

Nice prediction Jozef. You were only off by 25%. Your political instincts are as bad as your rhetoric. John Campbell can consider himself on double secret probabtion to coin a phrase from one of my favorite all time movies.

Campbell 3rd on Election Day

If you look at the Election Day numbers - Gilchrist came in first, Young - 2nd, and Campbell - 3rd.

A win is a win, but these Election Day numbers just suggest that Campbell and his staff have some work to do.

Speaking of that great movie "Animal House" the scene where the marching band is being led down a blind alley is how I view those that blindly vote Republican. Hopefully they'll snap out of it in time.

Phil Paule

What this means is that most Campbell voters have busy jobs and vote by mail. Most Gilchrist voters ....well you can figure out the rest.

Logical

Flash sums it up best ...
Since both JC/JG were stating stronger illegal immigration stance, then 70% of the voters want the GOP to straighten up and get with it.

"A guest-worker program is the only feasible remedy to the immigration problem in the short term--until we fix our broke-ass welfare system, we can't expect a fence, wall, or anything to stop people coming here to live the American dream."

This makes no sense at all. There are 2 types of guest worker programs. One would impose limits on the numbers of guest workers, the second allow unrestricted numbers. Without a wall or highly aggressive border security (more than any "serious" polititian has proposed) the first program would degenerate into the second. And I am not even considering the bribery that would be encouraged to raise the numbers. BOTH would ENCOURAGE more "guests." This would defeat any potential gains from a national security perspective. You are right about the welfare system which is why it should be fixed (or repealed) first. Additionally, the anchor baby problem with the 14th Amendment must also be addressed as a top priority.
