Scott Brown Wins MA Senate Seat Democrats Same Old Same Old
A political earthquake has struck in one of the bluest states in the union, Massachusetts. Scott Brown a Republican has defeated Democrat Martha Coakley in the special election for the senate seat held for more than 40 years by the late Ted Kennedy. The last Republican to hold a U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts was Edward W. Brooke, the first African-American senator to be elected since Reconstruction, winning in 1966 over Democrat Endicott Peabody.
Brown won over Coakley by a margin of 5 points (52% – 47%). This rebuke of President Obama’s big government, big spending policies follows the same pattern set in last November 3rd’s gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia, both won by Republicans. These are all foreshocks to the big one that will occur this coming November, when angry voters will throw as many Democrats as they can out of office!
An interesting note is as Brown’s vote totals continued to lead all over Coakley, CNN switched to Larry King Live and it’s Haiti coverage. Rather than let their viewers see this Obama defeat, they changed the subject!
So how did the Democrat’s respond to their failing administration and legislation; continue along the same lousy course. Why listen to the voters? These elitists are tone-deaf to the reality. Instead of bailing their sinking ship, Nancy Pelosi said, “We will pass quality, affordable Healthcare for all, very soon.”
This hold steady on course policy is driven by Barack Obama and the White House, believing that this populist anger is a minor blip. Press secretary Robert Gibbs said a key theme of 2010 will be asking voters “whether the people they have in Washington are on the side of protecting the big banks, whether they’re on the side of protecting the big oil companies, whether they’re on the side of protecting insurance companies or whether they’re on the people’s side.”
David Axelrod, Obama’s senior adviser said the midterm elections will not become “a referendum on this administration”. Mike Allen, writing for Politico says, “The White House rallying cry, according to one Obama confidant, will be, “Buckle up — let’s get some stuff done.”
Obama has to blame someone else rather than believe it is a referendum on his lack of Presidential hubris. “And in private conversations, Hill sources say White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has blamed Coakley, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake for failing to see Brown’s surge in time to stop it.”, according to Yid With Lid.
Now that Obama has set his State of the Union address for January 27th, we’ll see how cocky he really is. Barack will spout lots of his bullshit over the truth, but hey, that’s how he got elected.
Not only does Scott Brown’s election spell trouble for Obamacare and Cap & Trade, but it will scare the crap out of all those so-called “Blue Dog Democrats” who are up for relection. If they swallow the poison that Pelosi and Reid are offering then say good-bye to them too, this November.
Here is an interesting behind the scene snapshot of the current Democratic voter; Are Coakley Voters Too Ashamed to be Polled?
