Actually, I've heard more from Democrats today about what changes this election could make on their plans than I have Republicans. (Mostly on CNN).

Well, I think what happened was that the squatch's of the world were front and center for all to see and it ain't quite sitting well.

This kind of feels like a plan coming together. If you will check the archives you will see that a big part of my voting for Democrats in 2008 was to not positively reinforce the republicans as they were, and that liberals in full view would by definition show what they are about, and more specifically, what they aren't about. Not much.

And so, a year later here is what we have;


Coakley loses an election in a state where democrats outnumber republicans by THREE TO ONE!


It is the senate seat left by Ted Kennedy.



In an election that Ted had the laws changed to make happen,



With the people of Mass. not buying into the 'Democratic senate seat by acclimation and political heredity BS,' Brown had the great line of ,'It's not kennedy's seat, it's the people's seat.'



And President Obama comes in after not making a difference in the elctions in Virginia, New Jersey, and even the Olympic bid in Copo where the US was tossed out early on. One year in, he has coattails about as long as a Mickey Rooney tux.



and Obama and Coakley both think it is a good idea to act cool and rip on Brown for driving his 200,000-mile pickup truck around the state, acting and sounding like elitist psuedo-intellectual dorks,


and the dropping polls for Reid and Pelosi and Obama and this health care fiasco played large in this election,


and the end result is hilarious threads like this.


This is what happens when the Golden Age of Liberal- Leftist pablum is front and center! Please keep the Reid's and Nancy Legosi....er, Pelosi, and squatchs and SCBs and WoodsyDuckys and Obamas and Franks all front and center with as much enlightened liberalism as possible for all to see. It is amazing that the vast majority of the republican party has its head up its ass right now to not fully take advantage of this.


I will give a shout out tonight to a Democrat in Virginia Senator Jim Webb who says the following;

quote:
http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0110/On_to_Plan_C.html

"In many ways the campaign in Massachusetts became a referendum not only on health care reform but also on the openness and integrity of our government process. It is vital that we restore the respect of the American people in our system of government and in our leaders. To that end, I believe it would only be fair and prudent that we suspend further votes on health care legislation until Senator-elect Brown is seated."




Amen!!

True enough Squatch. But the trend is undeniable: Chris Christie in NJ, Bob McDonnell in VA, and now Scott Brown in MA. Obama injected himself in each campaign - especially the governors races - and was repudiated each time.

Face it; Obama tried to sound and run like Reagan during the campaign, but swung far left once he got in. His actions betrayed his words on countless occasions. His administration has acted with arrogance towards free market principles, American values, and even basic common sense. While true enough that Coakley ran a poor campaign, the anti-Obama agenda reaction was a significant factor.

I can't imagine a more deserving first year anniversary present for such an out-of-touch White House.

LOL. Somehow if Martha had won, I don't think this is the post we would be getting. That is very self serving to say in defeat. This election was a referendum on Health Care and this President. Thie democrats lost a seat that they had held for decades and was the seat needed for them to keep a phililbuster proof majoirty. Never in the democrats wildest dreams did they feel that they would lose Kennedys seat. Obama just suffered a huge defeat and has sent the Health Care debate in a new directioin.

Just one election not meaning diddley? Riiiiight

Did someone say Diddley?

Hey Otie, what was the link about? Seems there is always a "technical error" when clicking on it.

Those rednecks from Massachusetts, always voting for right wing nuts. And now, when the country will finally have a decent health care for everyone.



























































































I'm so sorry guys, but it's just so funny, really. I'll try to stop now.

Wow. You're responsible for all this, Fletch?

I seem to recall you on many occasions saying that you were the "new face of the Democratic Party." Care to explain how that fits in with your "plan coming together?"

Btw, you're an idiot.

The health care bill as it is, is a vote-bought mess. This election just happened in a state where Democrats outnumber republicans three to one. Coakley was her own worst enemy. And frankly, the health care mess with the vote buying of Vermont, Nebraska, Florida, the unions and all of the rest is going sour quick. When you delegate an important issue as that to folks like Reid and Pelosi, as I have been saying, what else is going to happen?? I just got a CD in the mail with a bunch of artists on it that was made to benefit the move towards health care reform in America. On the back of the CD cover is a direct quote by the senator from Vermont who expressly says that 'we should all fight for a single-payer system.' Since the CD was printed, he sold out on that notion, and was bought and paid for by Reid with billions of dollars of the rest of the American people's money for his state and his state alone. Sold out! Holy cow, California governor Arnold was even onboard until the vote buying started. Its a mess, and the longer the American people look at these bills, the less they like them. Which is probably why Reid and Pelosi tried to ramrod them as quickly as possible.

Who is backing Reid and Pelsoi and trhe way they've handled all of this right now??

Go to any of the major news web sites and read the posts they already have up about how this is changing the Democrats plans. Or you could go to MSNBC and see the interviews with Dean and several other big name Dems.

Seems like it's a big thing to them.

I don't think the governor races meant anything, but I think this one does. I don't think it is a reflection of Obama as much as a reflection on congress and the fact that many people think things run better when one party doesn't control everything.

What this really means for the senate is that Democrats will vote the way they want and the Republicans will vote as a single "non-thinking" block. Sometimes I wonder why Republicans bother to care who they are voting for because it seems that none ever break rank.

For whatever it's worth, I think this seat will go back to the Democrats in 2 years but the Republicans will pick up a few seats elsewhere. I'd like to think that the Democrats not having a filibuster proof majority is a good thing, but bipartisanship only works when members of both parties are willing to break rank with their own party for the good of the country. In reality this may be a good thing for Obama. Remember Clinton was not popular for the first 2 years he was in office until the Republicans took control of congress. After the Democrats lost control of congress, then Clinton became very popular.
