    They all make promises, but in this case the chief reasons the Democrat lost is that he was getting hammered on things he did which offended the district residents (like support the Park 51 project and gay marriage in New York state), and he failed to respond to his opponent effectively. It wasn't a campaign run on national issues.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Unbelievable. I am not surprised at the liberal distortion and attempts to re-write history. You really should research more and post less. Name for me one year during the Bush term where he had the control of Congress like the Democrats had in 2009-2010?

    All this from Scott Brown's surprise victory over Martha Coakley in the race for the Massachusetts Senate seat held for nearly 47 years by liberal lion Edward Kennedy, who died in August.
    Brown will become the 41st Republican in the 100-seat Senate, breaking Democrats' filibuster-proof majority.

    that is what you are going to believe and nothing is going to change your mind including media reports after the election.

    I see you're already preparing your whine for next year's election.

    The only reason you did vote for him was because he was a Republican. Don't sit there and lie your ass off claiming results matter to you. I'm embarrassed for you that you would even attempt to pull off such a scam.

    I'm not surprised that you're so narrow-minded that you label anybody who takes issue with your view as liberal, or an Obama supporter. That's why you refuse to see the NY-9 special election as anything other than a referendum.

    You, who calls the media biased and untrustworthy whenever they don't report what you want them to, should really stop referencing media reports as truth. It makes you look like a hypocrite. At any rate, I'm not going to change my mind because I know the truth, whereas all you know is labeling someone who disagrees with you as the opposite of whatever you label yourself.

    That is pretty good Democrat control and better than anything Bush or Reagan had during their term and yet Obama got his stimulus passed which did nothing but make the problem worse and Obamacare which is a jobs killer. NY 9 got it, when will you?

    The media interviewed voters after the election and that is what I was referring to but then I believe you knew that.

    No, that is exactly how I described it -- he didn't have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, and he had to bargain for those remaining votes. Otherwise, "Obamacare" would've come out looking much different.
