Allen West concedes to Patrick Murphy

By ALEX ISENSTADT | 11/20/12 5:45 AM EST

Florida Rep. Allen West — the tea party pugilist and face of the class of House Republicans that stormed to power two years ago — conceded Tuesday to 29-year-old construction executive Patrick Murphy in one of the nation’s highest-profile congressional races.

After two weeks of battle with St. Lucie County elections officials — and a recount of early votes that wound up extending Murphy’s lead — West acknowledged that he couldn’t surmount his 1,904-vote, or 0.58 percent, deficit. That difference was just outside the 0.5 percent threshold to automatically trigger a recount of all votes.

- snip -

“For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process,” West said in a statement to POLITICO. “While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.”

West congratulated Murphy, saying, “I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.”

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

I wonder how many of West's constituents believe that there are almost 100 communists in the Congress.

Maybe I don't want to know the answer to that question.

The "clarity and sanity" was in recognizing that if he continued to fight all he'd have was his own foam.

Both deemed thoroughly unelectable. One of them even quit her job halfway through.

These idiots don't understand that putting up people to public office who do nothing except to intentionally annoy the opposition is not a leadership trait.

You never know with these folks.

I LOVED the punchline to this story:

West congratulated Murphy, saying, “I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.”

HILARIOUS!!! Gee, maybe if allen west had put the interests of our nation before his own and his teabaggers' own, he might still be a Congressman today. He might even have had his first term ratified and reaffirmed by winning a second term. I find it exquisitely lovely that not only he was fired by his constituents, but also that asshole dirtbag deadbeat dad joe walsh in Illinois was hosed after only one term. That's a real vote of confidence for ya!

Glad you're here! Let's all make sure 13th Century "minds" like these DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT get anywhere near the reins of power AGAIN!!! Don't even care what office it is they flatter themselves into thinking they deserve!!! They need to be regarded as full-on UNELECTABLES!

The GOP needs to be pressured like the earth pressures undersea sand into solid, hard sandstone. Hopefully in much less time, in our case, though!

46. Very glad to see this! I hope it's a new beginning! For our side as well:

I'm hoping that 2010 is a lesson for all us Dems, progressives, liberals and other good guys. Even in the midterms - WE HAVE TO GET OUT THE VOTE!!! You want more of these assholes in power? More versions of allen west and joe walsh (the bad joe walsh, not the good singer/guitarist Joe Walsh of The James Gang and the Eagles!)? More of a chance for THEM to gain prominence, news coverage, lead-story attention, and donations up the ying-yang from opportunistic infections who think they see a winner? More opportunity for them to gain clout and influence? More opportunity for more of them to metastasize into the culture and overrun it, so THEY get to decide what the agenda is and what the policies are and what the laws are and who the enforcers are and whose interests get ignored and neglected?

Good Grief NO!!!! A vigorous GOTV campaign needs to be waged during the midterm elections as well! Especially since President Obama is going to need more strength at his back than ever! And it might even mean we take back the House in 2014 if we go all in!

And then, please consider this: if we have another great election like this one in 2014, JUST IMAGINE what that will do to the morale of the teabagger world. More of them becoming despondent, opting out, not bothering to vote, viewing their "movement" as so much toilet-filler. And MAYBE - just MAYBE - some of them will decide to open their eyes and open their minds a little more. What if it convinces some of them that they've just been lied to, and used, just one time too many? What if it actually reaches some of those poor souls and rescues them from the Damned? That would actually be really great! After all, even teabaggers will need to wake up, eventually.

What I hope for, longterm, is that the bad guys suffer enough significant electoral defeat, election cycle after election cycle, that some of them start to realize that not only have they been shamelessly used and lied to, but these ideas they're puffed up with just don't fly anymore. MAYBE, just MAYBE, some of them will realize the REAL truth: that they may actually have to join the 21st Century and abandon some of their Bronze Age ideas.

I think that's the real lesson of 2012, a lesson on which most of them on that side of the aisle can't, or WON'T take delivery: that it's not HOW they messaged that failed. It's WHAT they messaged. It's their over-arching message. Their agenda. Their ideas. Their worldview. THAT'S what failed. It certainly failed them - the way it would absolutely fail the rest of us if, Heaven forbid, THEIR agenda was enacted into law and/or carried into office by a new president.

I don't think many of them will recognize this, or learn this lesson, this time. But what if there's a series of elections that reinforce that lesson over the next SEVERAL election cycles? What if some of them finally start realizing that THIS set of ideas is a loser, and they better start developing some better ones. OR, better yet, warming up to the ideas that are WINNERS. Not all souls can be saved, of course. But maybe there are some. Maybe there are more than just some.

66. Don't trust Murphy Either

I heard on progressive radio the other day that Murphy is a really blue dog, who is already talking about preserving the Bush tax rate-giveaway to the rich as a way to avoid (this phony) fiscal cliff.

Anyone is better than West and the loss feels sweet, but WTF is the matter with Florida?

71. I'm not too sure about him either

And don't forget that they voted for Murphy which means they voted West out and they also voted for Alan Grayson to return. He's a known quantity which actually means something. They voted for what he does.

70. If nothing else you can say he's consistent

Went out like the crazy asshole he's always been.

May he quickly be forgotten forever.
