Blowout in Massachusetts!

Well, it looks like "The One" again delivers nothing-he campaigns for a liberal senator candidate, who loses the seat Kennedy held since 1970s'. No free gas, no money for car payments, no health care, no cap and trade, and of course, NO JOBS. Folks, how's that Hope and Change working out for you?

No votes yet

You can take that to the bank.

An progressive liberal democrat lost "Kennedy's seat" held for over 40 years in a state where democrats outnumber republicans 3 to 1....

Will the democrats listen?...or will they choose suicide?

BTW...here's part two: open letter to republicans:

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

I found the maps at swing state project to be very interesting.

http://www.swingstateproject.com/

The map of the counties Brown carried are eerily similar to the counties Clinton carried in the '08 primary.

It seems the wrong person was sent to campaign on Sunday.

I don't feel this is so much a win for Republicans as it is a win for fiscal conservatives.

It's a victory for independants.

And Dems broke 22% for Brown as well.

Registered GOP are only 12%

In Mass Brown would be considered GOLDWATER....so yeah...it's a blowout chris.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

I can see another Senator with a couple years experience running for president, soon! Have you folks read Browns' resume? If anyone thinks the "tea party crowd" was energized before, watch 'em now.

This was a referendum on healthcare. The bill will now either die or be pushed throughin a very unpopular way.

If pushed through Dems will lose both houses. They will also give a sense of apathy to their voters after that loss and they won't regain momentum again for 8 years.

They could have minimized these losses had they not taken the NOW OR NEVER attitude because when you gamble like that never becomes a distinct possibility.

The administration made a very bad calculation by bailing out the automakers. From that point on it became more and more clear who the Dems were really there to serve and while voters weren't fans of the GOP they never let a special interest dictate to the point where they'd stake their political lives before it.

CONGRAULATIONS
What good and meaningful things can we expect from him and the Republicans?
I can't wait to see all of the good jobs and business that will now appear.
What do you conservatives really want. and expect NOW,[ AND PLEASE PUT IT IN LAYMANS TERMS SO THAT PEOPLE LIKE ME CAN UNDERSTAND. I am trying to learn how your ideaology is better. [I don't consider myself a liberal} although you probably do.
CONGRATULATIONS! I am happy for you..Winning is a good feeling.
Does this mean that the emergency room will still be the doctors office? and we still have to pay for it.
I hope that you all will bring down the unemployment rate. People need jobs . Please let me know about those jobs so that I can tell young people that I know where to apply. All of my "peeps" are retired.
FYI I have not kept up with the ends and outs of this race, and know very little about either candidate.
I AM being sarcastic. LMAO

Hrm....he might provide a shot accross the bow...but the democrats are still in charge...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

I expected you to be in full gloating regalia today.

A win is a win, Republicans can rejoice and crow a bit (or alot), Dems are disappointed and doing the head-scratching thing.

That said, Brown didn't beat Ted Kennedy, he beat an individual who ran a hapless campaign for Ted Kennedy's seat. She basically took Dec. off even when polls showed everything was getting tight. There is a difference.

I know nothing about Brown other than he looks like he could star in a Wrangler Jean's or pickup-truck commercial. Maybe he's got the Kennedy charisma-thing going for the other side.

Well, Obama was inaugerated in exactly a year ago. He probably felt then he had at least until the 2012 election-cycle to fix things; if he didn't know better before, he certainly does now.

You are sadly mistaken if you think the Republican Party is the party of the people. Did you not live the past decade where the Republican Party broke the bank with unfunded spending creating deficits and casino capitalistic policies that created the second Depression? They are not the party of the people but big business benefactors. This party will adversely affect the Ohio region as has been the case. Electing Republican John Kasich as governor will promote the failed Wall Street Lehman Brothers manager to institute more of the same failed policies that got us into this economic mess.

a lone wolfpuppy howling is kind of a sad song, isnt it?

I have lived thru the last 6 six decades, and I am very much aware of the last 8 eight under the BUSH GANG.
I want the conservative R's to tell me what beneficial changes can I expect now that they have won a seat in Mass.
MY THEORY/EXPERIENCE tell me that the more things change the more they stay the same. BUT, I live with the hope of a change that will benefit all American"s. I don't care who brings it.

I want the conservative R's to tell me what beneficial changes can I expect now that they have won a seat in Mass."

It's no secret it's what Scott Brown campaigned on: Stopping a horrible HC bill.

MikeyA

The Senate bill is terrible, the House bill is much better. That said, the Senate bill is basically the EXACT same thing that Brown and Mitt Romney implemented and voted for in Massachusetts.

"...the Senate bill is basically the EXACT same thing that Brown and Mitt Romney implemented and voted for in Massachusetts."

And the voters in Massachusetts REJECTED a Democrat who would have supported "the EXACT same thing that Brown and Mitt Romney implemented and voted for in Massachusetts."

Apparently, what was implimented in  Massachusetts SUCKS so badly that voters in Massachusetts voted TO TAKE AWAY A FILLIBUSTER-PROOF MAJORITY  in Congress so that Democrats cannot screw America the same way Massachusetts got screwed.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Ok

Make your point.Question?
Mikeya;
Whats horrible about it? Can we have some examples and details?

The Louisiana Purchase. The Nebraska sell out. It raises taxes and does nothing to lower premiums. Liberals hate it because it doesn't punish health insurance companies. Republicans hate it because it's a bureaucracy designed to lead to single-payer. The only people who like it are the Senators who wrote it or got paid to vote for it.

MikeyA

So rich white democrats are the "party of the people"...oh I see...how siliy of us to not undertstand and grovel at their feet...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Stock Market Drops 200 points...

Last week Cramer said this -

What does a Brown election mean...? Well, first you're going to get a knee-jerk rally in all the so-called penalized stocks -- the HMOs, the drugs, the medical device-makers. I call it "knee-jerk," though, because these stocks have been on fire for months...It's been clear as a bell that the health care reform wasn't going to affect most health care stocks. That's versus what we thought last year.

More important, though, I think that investors who are nervous about the dictatorship of the Pelosi proletariatwill feel at ease, and we could have a gigantic rally off a Coakley loss and a Brown win. It will be a signal that a more pro-business, less pro-labor government could be in front of us...How about a little bit less like the old Soviet Union? Yeah, that would be a bit more like it. Pelosi politburo emasculation!

And Fox and Fiends said -
http://tpmlivewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/01/fox-and-friends-suggest...

Regular Fox and Friends guest Stuart Varney then explained in cold, scientific, highly technical terms that if Scott Brown wins, "it's possible" people's 401(k)s could benefit. "Think of it this way: if Scott Brown wins, I mean that is a revolution in Massachusetts politics," Varney reasoned. "So if Scott Brown wins... you've got 10 months before the next big election, time to reverse the tax, spend, and borrow, and deficit story that we've had for the past year. Investors would love that. Your 401(k) could do well because of that."

So far this guy has cost my 401K a few thousand...

Only "rich people" have 401K's....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

The Scott Brown beauty pageant changes nothing! The Republican'ts along with the so-called party of the people take their money the old fashion way from lobbyists. The 1% are throwing a party today at the expedience of the 99%.

HrmmmBrowns Mom was on welfare...now he owns 5 properties....

The kennedy's inheret their money...and it came from gandpa running rum during prohabition...

Ofcorse you would prefer your own anointed in office rather than some rabble who dared go out and make his own way...

Funny when you cry about the rich...you never cry about rich liberals...like Soros, Gates,, Al gore, the clintons, pelosi, hollywierd movie stars, directors, athletes... etc etc etc etc etc an infinitum...

To you the "rich" are only white conservatives who make more money that you do ... must be punished for doing so......

It's not about the money...it's about the idealogy...

1% owning everything is what socialism IS...or did you miss all the party members riding the back of luxury cars going from the "peoples house" to their own house behind fences and armed gaurds while the unarmed peasants starve....

And yeah...Browns election has already changed EVERYTHING..

The Dems are running for the tall grass...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

The more I think about it, Brown's victory may be a good thing---IF it truly represents the beginning of a populist movement. The left-wing of the Democratic Party have been populist for years, but haven't been able to break through the "establishment" (at least in positions of leadership). It would make sense that it would begin in the GOP, considering it's recent collapse. We shall see...

Pink Slip

"The left-wing of the Democratic Party have been populist for years,"

BUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Progressivism is NOT Populism...

The left wing IS the establishment now dumbass...

No worries..in spite of all evidence to back off...the dem establishment will double down and push farther left...

Brown RAN on being that 41's vote...he RAN on approval of waterboarding and getting TOUGHER on terrorists...he RAN on being the roadblock to the democrat "establishment"...

And won in the bluest of blue states....

So go ahead and double down....RUN ON IT...

PLEASE do...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

The populist movement has been going on since July. The problem for Dems is they called them Teabaggers (a derogatory term), mobs, unruly, astroturf, nazi's and a lot of other mean spirited

A tea party in Massachusetts shouldn't sound crazy due history but there have been those Dems who even today are arguing that they didn't push Obamacare HARD ENOUGH.

All one has to do is look at the polls on HCR and it's clear that the Dem leadership was not that and instead let the bill get taken away from them and morphed into something even libs had a hard time supporting.

The Dems need to embrace fiscal conservation, cut taxes, cut spending, balance the budget or else they will get Teabagged!

MikeyA

The left wing of the democratz' party has done it's job well, bringing about one defeat after another, in three of the most socialist states now. I love it! Of course I could add to that-the loss of the Olympics, and the global warming farce in Denmark, but I won't. The Ruler is pretty much a footnote in US history now, and a rather small, insignificant one at that.
