    Amen!! I have been saying that since he entered the race. If you look close, you can actually see craziness in his eyes.

    Seriously, is there not one man or woman in Roy Moore‘s life who will stand up and tell him to quit acting like a fool?

    Look you lost, now be a gentlemen and accept it. I voted for the Republican party which I am sorry to say it was you. NOW pray for the new Senator he has a big job ahead of him and he needs you to be in prayer that God will lead him.

    And yet he lost by only 20,000 votes. Alabama: Where being a self-righteous prick with a fixation on teenaged girls sometimes just isn’t enough.

    I did not vote for Moore, nor would I have even before the allegations, but I think you would have seen a bigger difference if Jones was not so radically pro abortion.
    I think had there been a more moderate Democrat many of the republicans who stayed would have voted for him/her.
    Also keep in mind almost as many republicans stayed home as voted against him. I think this is as much a testaments to how bad a candidate Jones was as it is to Moore’s blind following.

    The term “radically pro-abortion” disqualifies you from pretending to have an intelligent opinion. Quick civics tip: the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on abortion in 1973, and there’s nothing that Doug Jones or Roy Moore can do about that.

    Mark Kelly quick tip, you need to study civics.
    Things Legislators has done since Row versus Wade:
    1 ended partial birth abortion in 2003.
    2 ended late term abortion in about half the states.
    3 the House passed a 20 week Abortion ban, but died in the Senate. Funny Congress would vote on this if were a moot point.
    Things Jones said he wanted to do in his MSN interview was to end the 20 week Abortion ban. Funny words from a man who would have no authority to change things.

    Mark Kelly the Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of laws they do not set laws.
    Congress can rewrite laws to address concerns in the Supreme Court rulings.
    Maybe you should understand how the three branches of government work before you start self righteously disqualifying people’s opinions.

    Mark Kelly I was simply saying, that one statement by Jones, which why would he say it if he could not do anything about, lost him a lot of votes in a conservative State.

    Alabama Secretary of State has stated today that his complaint will not interfere with certifying that Doug Jones won the election.

    The only thing left for Roy Moore to do is to go on a book tour with his book title “What the hell happened to me?”

    Jones wasn’t my choice but we must do one of two things. Pray that he is the best Senator Alabama has ever had or, if not, hope the Republicans use this as a wake-up call to recruit better qualified candidates

    Definitely think we are called to pray for him. I think the church really drops the ball on that.

    George Wallace got 80% of the black vote after preaching segregation forever and standing in the schoolhouse door. Alabamians are born with the ability to vote with one hand while holding our noses with the other hand. I’m reasonably confident that a fair amount of Jones’ voters did the same.

    Isn’t that true of every candidate?

    I think the most surprising thing to me was when I read an article written by a Southern Baptist pastor that I am familiar with that came out and said that a Christian had no choice but to vote for Doug Jones. I think that was kind of a strong statement seeing as his premise was that Roy Moore had been accused. And that we should overlook smoking words of Jones concerning abortion. No Doubt, Republican Party equipment of qualified candidates is not their strong suit

    A simple accusation doesn’t make you guilty. If it were true to begin with, the police would be investigating you. But you handled it poorly. You chose to vacation to football games etc instead of holding rallies to sway voters and confront the allegations. If you cared this much, you would have acted sooner instead of being an absentee candidate. Take your loss, you earned it.

    “Asked permission from their mothers”? He might need to be certified, but in a different context.

    Moore left those votes on the table. His lack of campaigning and catering to only a specific group of Republican voters cost him those votes. Mine was one of them. A write in. While many of us were undecided we were just waiting for him to get out from behind those random church pulpits and come out in a more public environment and answer the hard questions. He never did. He lost and it’s time to move on. This type of behavior is typical Moore style.

    The Republicans had a much better candidate in Mo Brooks. But Luther Strange wrecked that. I hope Ala voters remember that the next time Luther tosses his hat into the ring. I’ll certainly never vote for him.

    Lynne Friday I doubt we’ll see him again.
    Of course, we may also have the next election before Moore concedes.

    Please don’t give strange that much credit. When the Republican Super PAC got involved alabamians turn their nose up at being told what and how to vote. If the Republican Party would stop for just a moment, and listen, they would know the issues that are important to the voters. The problem is even after Trump showed them, they did nothing. Then after orchestrating the Luther loss, they were happier letting a Democrat win then trying to support any candidate. But if you paid attention the support became available after the tax vote.

    I’m hoping Jones will reach across the aisle as he promised. I’m afraid the folks on the other side will be pulling at him like the demons grab Patrick Swayze’s killers in Ghost
