10:15 Results

by Street Sweeper on January 25, 2011

Yes – 35,786 (49.01%)
No – 37,233 (50.99%)

1,447 vote difference.

The Suttle folks had said those numbers represented North O and South O voters, and were hoping for a bump.

They got it.  But will it hold?

WOWT and Suttle seem to think so….

Stop your whining. Your rich sugar daddies spent big wads because ya’ll had a temper tantrum. You lost. Get over it. Glad to see that voters finally showed those 6 people that gave more than half the money for the recall that they can’t buy everything they want!!

“How many homeless people voted for Suttle?” Not 1,447. Humble pie anyone?

Memo to the recall people: Thanks for nothing! You squandered the taxpayer’s money and divided the City of Omaha. You were a bunch of sore losers after 2009 and you’re still a bunch of losers.

It is good to see that the rich reactionary forces could not buy this election.

Don’t ya’ll have a BOLD(er) Nebraska meeting you should be getting to? I hear big oil is trying to starve children and ruin every river and aquifer in Nebraska. Not to mention the special guests: Hugo Chavez and El Presidente Fidel Castro. Should be a pretty fun evening.

If by “rich reactionary forces” you mean the Anti-Recall committe (who out spent the pro-recallers 2-1) then yes, Hooray for the “little guy”!!

Jim is just a nose to the grind stone, engineer. You know?

If this were a regular election, Suttle would have lost. Many of the “no” votes were not a vote in favor of Suttle, but against a recall.

He is a one-term mayor.

Let’s be thankful for that.
