    Apparently so did Corzine in N.J. and Deeds in Va. Do Democrats ever admit they are wrong on any issue? When Democrats lose it is the candidate running a bad race but when they win it is the will of the people. Liberals are so predictable and arrogant.

    So let's break this down. A moderate Republican won a seat in Mass. Great. Good for him!

    Now do you think he would have won that seat if it had been against against Kerry or a half-alive Ted Kennedy or any heavily entrenched incumbent Senator? Hell no. He would have gotten destroyed.

    So the GOP picks up one (vacated) Senate seat in a special election in January. Again. Big whoop.

    Until I see serious changes in the GOP and their style of governing I refuse to get excited about any of this bull****.
    I'm with you on all that, trust me, but you have to admit there's something good about stopping Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid redefine the American health care system. We just dodged a train.

    No.

    He has the opportunity to stop them.

    The Left losing the Liberal Lyin's "seat" in the Senate is momentous, but don't think the Constitution has been restored.

    Here we have one of the most Liberal states in the union & they are flat out rejecting Obamacare, yet we still have Dem leaders telling us they are going to push it through however they can, even though the majority of the public rejects it.

    If they continue with this IMO we will see a huge turnover in the next election if they persist. The Dems just arent getting the message the American people are trying to tell them......arrogance?... ideology?

    Thank You New England & Scott Brown !!!!!!

    So long to commie care.....

    I never said I was in favor of Obama care or cap and trade. I haven't even mentioned them. I simply expect spending and increased government from the Dems. Hell it's what they do. At least they're not hypocrites about it.


    Obama's agenda seen through would have killed what's left of American capitalism, and probably America. Scott Brown just stopped him.
    No it would not. Spare me the hyperbole. It would have simply taken our money and spent it on something the Dems wanted. It's exactly what the GOP would do if they could get their greedy little hands on our cash. Of course they'd spend it on something different, but just as wasteful.


    I'm with you on all that, trust me, but you have to admit there's something good about stopping Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid redefine the American health care system. We just dodged a train.
    Sure. Great. We have temporarily slowed down government spending. And the only reason the GOP supporters on this site are happy about that is because it's spending they didn't like.

    Blowing open the discussion about Obama's ideas failing.

    He did that. Alone.
    The press took on Rush, and kept the talk going.

    That discussion would never have taken place had it not been for Rush, as NOBODY was prepared to challenge Obama. Even some R's cowered at the thought.

    That comment "I want Obama to Fail" opened a discussion not on Failure... but what Obama's agenda is. Without that discussion, pried open by Rush... few people would know what the hell is going on, or how radical Obama is.

    The press certainly wouldn't... after all they tried to destroy Rush and discredit his comments.

    They didn't and because of Rush... America benefited... and Brown is one of the beneficiaries.

    You know what really probably did it?

    I bet Mr. V said that "Brown is going to Bust in Mass, he can't win there, its mass".

    As seen in the avatar thread, anything Mr. V predicts will happen 100% opposite. So that must've been what caused this

    Woo, the past few elections...its nice to be excited about results again

    Oh, they're getting the message.

    That's why they've been rushing this monstrosity through, without public input, without "openness", without concern for next November.

    Because, when it's all said and done, and the Messiah puts his signature on whatever IS passed, that's it. By NO stretch of the imagination will the Republicans be able to gain the seats in November to pass a repeal of this disastrous bill, and by the time 2012 rolls around, it will be too late, there will be too many interests vested in the status quo for it to be repealed.

    The Messiahcare Bill has to be stopped.

    Now.

    Dead in it's tracks.

    So they can't incrementalize any "fixes" to it later.

    No Healthcare must be that goal while this administration is in power.

    The super-majority is lost. The public option and cap & trade are dead. I don't suspect we'll be seeing either of those terrible ideas resurface for a long, long while. That is very good for this country.

    Of course not. I'm just glad Obama lost his super-majority.

    You can't fix things if you don't know they are broken.

    I will bet Obama and his team do not think this is no big deal. They have to figure out where to go from here.
    Oh no, no big deal just freekin kennedy's senate seat in the most democratic state in the universe!!
