Obama Almost Gets It

I knew full well that Scott Brown’s solid defeat of Martha Coakley in the deep blue liberal stronghold of Massachusetts was a watershed moment in modern American politics. I did not, however, expect its repercussions to be felt quite this swiftly or to effect the attitudes of the White House so significantly in so short of order. President Obama almost gets it; he almost understands how things have suddenly changed.

People Are Angry, and They’re Frustrated

President Obama, in a complete reversal of his previous desire to rush forward, warned congressional Democrats today not to “jam” a health care reform bill through the reconciliation process in the wake of their loss of their super-majority in the Senate. The POTUS also said they must wait for newly elected Massachusetts Republican, Scott Brown to be sworn into office before holding any debates or votes.

Here’s my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country. The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry, and they’re frustrated. Not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.

Here’s one thing I know and I just want to make sure that this is off the table: The Senate certainly shouldn’t try to jam anything through until Scott Brown is seated People in Massachusetts spoken. He’s got to be part of that process.

— President Obama
Interview with George Stephanopoulos, January 20, 2010

The President almost gets it; he almost understands the anger and frustration of the American people. If he could just “man up” and accept his responsibility for it instead of – yet once again – blaming President George W. Bush for everything, he’d probably get it and just might be able to adapt more fully to it and the will of we, the People.

The anger that Scott Brown tapped into to reach his victory is very similar to, but not quite the same, as the anger that Obama tapped into in 2008 and trying to blame President Bush for it isn’t going to change that.

Still, it’s a step in the right direction. President Obama, much like some other Liberals, can at least finally recognize the people’s anger and even if he doesn’t understand or care for America, he does understand fear and will respond to threats if they’re made bluntly enough.

Brown: The Aftermath

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) aka Lt. Colonel Brown, MA State National GuardNow that Republican Scott Brown has won the election to fill Massachusetts’ US Senate seat left empty by Sen. Ted Kennedy’s long overdue yet far too quick death, what will be the response from President Obama and his Liberals who currently rule Congress?

Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) breaks the Dems super-majority in the Senate and, theoretically puts the Liberals’ entire destructive, neo-Socialist agenda at immediate and significant risk.

Worse for the traitorous Left, Brown’s campaign was centered on opposition to President Obama visions for a 2nd Reconstruction of- or replacement for America – especially ObamaCare.

I’m ambivalent about how Brown ran his campaign largely as a referendum against Obama. It’s too similar to Obama’s presidential campaign, which was against Bush rather than McCain.

While I’m very happy that it worked for Brown and, by extension, Americans as a whole, I didn’t like it when Obama ran his campaign that way and I don’t like it that Brown followed suit. In my rarely humble opinion campaigns should be ran against one’s opponent, not a third party.

What exactly President Obama and his Liberals’ immediate response will be to Sen. Brown’s somewhat shocking defeat of Martha Coakley is a matter of some discussion and seems to be fraught with great deal contradictory evidence and statements by Democrat politicians.

Revolt In Massachusetts

There was a revolt, a revolution if you will, in Massachusetts this week and it ended in victory for the people of Massachusetts and even more so for we, the People of the United States of America. Republican Scott Brown defeated Democrat Martha Coakley in the January 19, 2010 special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s US Senate seat.

Both FOXNews and MSNBC confirm that Brown won 52% to 47% in an election with very high voter turnout, especially for a special election held in very inclimate weather.

In his victory speech, Massachusetts’ newest US Senator, Scott Brown declared the following:

Tonight, the independent voice of Massachusetts has spoken. This Senate seat belongs to no one person, no one political party. … This is the people’s seat.

Given that registered Democrats 3:1 advantage over Republicans in the state (37% of registered voters are Democrats, 12% are Republicans) but fully 51% are unaffiliated / independent, Sen. Brown was right. The “independent voice” of Massachusetts has indeed spoken, and they have spoken against neo-Socialist agenda being furthered by the Democrats in Congress and the White House in the person of President Barack H. Obama.

Yes, there was a revolt of the People in Massachusetts and it will have both immediate and long-term consequences for the Liberals who currently try to rule America.
