Mixed Election Results for County Political Parties

The Bucks County Democrats took home the night's biggest prize, but the Republican Committee had its own victories at the polls.

By 11:15 p.m. Tuesday night, the re-election of President Barack Obama was not completely official, but Ann Marie Jordan felt pretty good after seeing the results of one of the major battleground states.

"When Fox News called Ohio for Obama, I knew we had it," said Jordan, a volunteer neighborhood team leader for Obama's Bucks County re-election campaign.

Not long after, the news networks began making their calls that Obama had earned a second term as Jordan's team of volunteers gathered at their headquarters on Main Street in Doylestown began celebrating the victorious night.

"It was the same boots on the ground effort we had in 2008 that helped him win tonight in Pennsylvania and the country," Jordan said. "All of our volunteers worked tirelessly to make this happen."

The celebration continued further up the street as the Bucks County Democratric Party watched the results stream in while partying on the second floor of M.O.M.'s Maxwell on Main. Despite his loss to Marguerite Quinn in 143rd District in the Pennsylvania Assembly, Joe Frederick was fired up by his party's overall successful night.

"As a candidate, Mitt Romney flip-flopped too much," said Frederick. "The people want somebody who is consistent and will stand up for the rights of everybody, and that's Barack Obama."

Frederick congratulated his opponent on her election victory, but pledged that she has not seen the last of him.

"This is my first campaign, and I loved being out there," said Frederick. "I'll definitely be back in two years."

The success of Quinn, Bernie O'Neill in the 29th district, Paul Clymer in the 145th district and Mike Fitzpatrick's re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives provided some solace to the Bucks County Republicans as they watched the results around the corner on Broad Street.

"My glass is always half-full," said committee chairperson Pat Poprik. "We managed to keep Mike Fitzpatrick in congress and hold onto the house. Business-minded individuals like Fitzpatrick need to be there to stop Obama's shenanigans."

Obama is for the freedoms of all? You do know he signed an executive order that permits the US government to execute a US citizen without due process an executive order allowing for the siezure of a US citizens assets and they can not even defend it in front of a judge or how about the executive order that allows for the indefinate detention of a US citizen without due process or even charges being filled against them. He is for freedom for all? The sheeple are being led to the slaughter one right at a time and your thanking him. What a joke freedom for all thats a good one.

Truth be told, the president doesn't have that much affect on the economy or the military. Whoever's in the office is controlled by "the power that be". So my vote went for the guy who's not a douche to women and gays.

Oh so President Obama does not have control over the economy? Huh, that's a new one. So I guess it is also true that it can't be blamed on Bush because he had no control either. Gotcha.

Wars are terrible for the economy. They're unpaid for, create huge debt, increase spending every year. Oh and then there's the prescription drug plan, once again, unpaid for. These are things presidents have control over. Not the price of gasoline, or how much other companies hire. The president affects those things very little. Oh wait there was the "Jobs Bill", but the republicans voted against that...
