In one of the last contested races of the 2012 Election, Allen West of Florida, a vocal, tea-party backed Republican Congressman, has conceded the race to Patrick Murphy after a recount of early votes showed that he would not be able to beat Murphy in a total recount.

“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.”

Sharron Angle came close to winning the Nevada Senate race, and she’s decided not to let that loss stop her:

The high-profile race helped to make her a tea party leader and in her concession speech, she indicated she likely would pursue office again. Recently, she has traveled to Republican rallies in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina and kept followers abreast of her whereabouts through her Twitter account.

So, that should be interesting, and a relatively easy win since she was close to winning the entire state.  It will also give her a legislative record, which could be a good thing if she chose to run for Senate again.  I wouldn’t mind seeing a rematch in 2014!

In 2008, the country voted for someone with a promise of “hope and change,” someone that gave a lot of promises to everyone—many more than he could possibly fulfill.

Will the country be ready for someone whose only promises would be less debt, less spending and less taxes in 2012?  And who would have that kind of track record?

Like the broken down old pickup shown above, many in America feel that the American Democracy is broken.  Putting aside for the moment that the country is actually a Democratic Republic, many believe that the officials we have in place are not cut out for the task at hand, and one wonders if that includes their own elected representative.

In 2008, the story was President George W. Bush, and anyone that ran against him was given a distinct advantage.  In 2010, it seems that anyone that runs with tea party support is surprising the establishment.
