WOW, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews & Al Sharpton Tear Into Kentucky Democrat Senate Loser Alison Lundergan Grimes Concession Speech … “You Need to Be Gracious!”
WOW, WHO WOULD HAVE EXPECTED THE FOLLOWING FROM THE FOLKS AT MSNBC … CAMPAIGN COVERAGE AT MSLSD HAVE A MOMENT OF LUCIDITY.
How bad was the election tsunami and tidal wave that ripped through the Democrat party and Barack Obama last night during the 2014 midterm that saw the GOP pick up at least 7 US Senate seats, possibly 9, at least 12 House seats and governorships in places like Massachusetts, Illinois and Maryland … the MSNBC election coverage team of Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton ripped into Alison Lundergan Grimes for her concession speech, following her Kentucky Senate drubbing at the hands of Mitch McConnell 56% to 41%. Her concession speech was hardly gracious.
I have to give credit where credit is due, Matthews and Sharpton were spot on in their analysis.
“That wasn’t your usual concession speech,” Chris Matthews began. “Usually you congratulate the winner. You say something gracious. You move on. You unify the state to some extent. It was a partisan speech. Fair enough, it’s her call,” he added.
“It wasn’t a concession speech. Usually, you concede,” Al Sharpton added, noting that she made the Democrats turn on her when she infamously refused to say whether she voted for Obama during an editorial board Q&A. “You can represent what you represent. But you respect the winner, and you pledge to move on together.”
Rachel Maddow thought that Grimes may have been “shellshocked” by how badly she lost (polls showed her running neck-in-neck with McConnell) and Chris Hayes added that McConnell’s entire strategy was to tie her to the deeply-maligned President. “She was unable to say that she voted for Barack Obama was because Barack Obama is deeply unpopular,” he pointed out.
You can watch Grimes not-so concession speech HERE. This is what happens when you have delusion views and try and win at all cost, but cant even say who you voted for. Stay classy Alison, although last night was hardly one of your shining moments. I guess the good folks of Kentucky saw your true colors in defeat, a resounding defeat.
Sour Grapes at MSNBC after Republican Mitch McConnell Defeats Their Lib Alison Lundergan Grimes … “She Had the Audacity to Run”
NO TINGLES UP HIS LEG TONIGHT, BA-HA,HA,HA … BETTER CALL THE WAHMBULANCE FOR MATTHEWS.
There may actually be only one thing better than watching a big night for the GOP in a political election and that is watching the liberal-Left lose their minds over at MSLSD and whine about their candidates lose. Chris Matthews was obviously not feeling the tingles up his leg tonight as he bitterly stated, “She had the audacity to run against this incredibly powerful incumbent with all the tricky moves up his sleeves, and sarcasm and ridicule … She’ll be back”. Then another liberal ass-hat went on to make a ridiculous comparison to McConnell’s victory to that of Harry Reid’s win by the seat of his pants. Hey folks at MSNBC, I realize that your math skills may not be top notch due to common core,
McConnell won his race despite Kentucky voters’ negative views of him. The Republican incumbent has a 52% unfavorable rating to just 46% favorable in the NBC News exit poll, which is usually dangerous territory for a sitting senator. Fortunately for McConnell, Grimes fell short of the challenge.
Fell short? Sorry, but this was far from a close race in the end. One might think it was made bigger because the liberal MSM wanted to make it appear closer than it really was.
KENTUCKY SENATE ELECTION 2014 – Mitch McConnell (R) – Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) (Update: FOX News Calls Race for McConnell)(Mitch McConnell Wins)
Early vote count has Republican Minority Senate Leader Mitch McConnell ahead of Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, 60% to 38% with 2% reported.
UPDATE I: FOX NEWS HAS JUST CALLED THE ELECTION FOR REPUBLICAN MITCH MCCONNELL!!!
Fox News projects that Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell will win reelection to his Kentucky seat, defeating Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.
This is a big win for Republicans because Kentucky was one of the few states where Democrats thought they had a chance of flipping a Senate seat from red to blue. It’s also significant because if Republicans take control of the Senate, McConnell will likely seek to replace Democrat Harry Reid as the next Senate majority leader.
THAT WAS QUICK!!! This is huge as Democrats were all in that they could take this seat from the GOP in an effort to retain control of the US Senate as they are expected to lose many seats tonight. If this is the way it is going to go in elections tonight, the GOP may find themsleves picking up a net 8 or more Senate seats this evening.
UPDATE II: AP – McConnell wins Ky. as GOP bids for Senate majority.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell won a hard-fought sixth term Tuesday, putting him a step closer to his lifelong dream of becoming majority leader and getting the GOP off to a good start in its goal of taking control of the Senate.
Democrats once had high hopes for challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky’s young secretary of state. But the hill was too steep in a state President Barack Obama lost by 23 percentage points in 2012.
UPDATE III: McConnell Crushes Grimes.
McConnell, who as Senate Republican leader is already one of the most powerful politicians in Washington, defeated his 35-year old Democratic challenger, in one of the most expensive contests of the campaign cycle. Grimes proved to be a surprisingly formidable opponent and was close in many polls throughout the campaign.
But CNN’s exit polls found McConnell succeeded in turning the race into a referendum on whether Democrats or Republicans should run the Senate. Of those interviewed, 86% said party control was important to them — and they broke 55% to 43% for McConnell over Grimes.
