The race for disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner's seat should have been a slam-dunk for Democrat David Weprin. After all, New York's 9th. District is the bluest of blue and has been in the control of Democrats since the 1920's. This is the same district that voted for liberal Chuck Schumer and Anthony Weiner for years. Tonight's victory for Republican Bob Turner is a major slap in the face to President Barack Obama and his failed agenda. It's also a repudiation of Obama's treatment of Israel, because the 9th District has a large Jewish voter base that went for the Republican candidate. Barack Obama received an astounding 78% of the Jewish vote nationwide in 2008 and many New York Jewish voters have said they were sick and tired of the way this administration has treated Israel and wanted to send a message.
