What does the election of a Republican Senator from Massachusetts mean? It means the Democrats now have to start answering to the American people. Balance was in order, and the most Democratic state in the nation voted Republican by a wide margin (yes, he ran as an Independent, but it was clear he would not vote with the Democratic majority).
It is our guess that Scott Brown will shortly convert to the Republican party. And there is little doubt he will vote against the national healthcare debacle.
Most of what we said prior to the election has come true. The Democrats have put us so far in a hole, that the light at the surface is no longer visible. They have claimed credit for the Fed’s actions to restore the economy. They have not delivered on any of their promises. And they have lied so much that if Pinnochio were a Democrat, his nose would reach from Provincetown, Massachusetts, to San Diego, California.
Obama actually came to Massachusetts to crush Scott Brown. The Democrats resorted to their lies and mudslinging in the campaign to get Democrat Martha Coakley elected after their attempts to get votes legitimately failed. Scott kept his head high and, in so doing, gained even more respect, as people looked on Coakley with total disdain.
Nothing the Democrats did could change the result, even in a state that is even more Democrat than Bill Ayers! Scott Brown and Massachusetts sent them a huge message. Stop lying and start doing something other than spending our money!!
Will someone tell us what Obama has accomplished since the election? Anything? Anyone? Well, to be honest, he did introduce his guests to Kobe Beef ON AMERICA’S NICKLE!!
And will someone PLEASE shut up that stupid comic, Wanda Sykes?? Every time she opens her mouth, all that comes out is nauseating nonsense. She was good on The Drew Carey show though, when she didn’t confuse her ability to make people laugh with intelligence.
We welcome Scott Brown and we welcome America to the reality of Obama’s first and last term.
G.O.P. Senate Victory Stuns Democrats
BOSTON — Scott Brown, a little-known Republican state senator, rode an old pickup truck and a growing sense of unease among independent voters to an extraordinary upset Tuesday night when he was elected to fill the Senate seat that was long held by Edward M. Kennedy in the overwhelmingly Democratic state of Massachusetts.
By a decisive margin, Mr. Brown defeated Martha Coakley, the state’s attorney general, who had been considered a prohibitive favorite to win just over a month ago after she easily won the Democratic primary.
With all precincts counted, Mr. Brown had 52 percent of the vote to Ms. Coakley’s 47 percent.
“Tonight the independent voice of Massachusetts has spoken,” Mr. Brown told his cheering supporters in a victory speech, standing in front of a backdrop that said “The People’s Seat.”
The election left Democrats in Congress scrambling to salvage a bill overhauling the nation’s health care system, which the late Mr. Kennedy had called “the cause of my life.” Mr. Brown has vowed to oppose the bill, and once he takes office the Democrats will no longer control the 60 votes in the Senate needed to overcome filibusters.
