    Who's largest platform promise was to be the 41st vote against Obamacare. I think this sends one hell of a signal to DC, question is, are they listening?

    He wasn't elected specifically on healthcare.

    This vote is a resounding negative commentary on Obama and his harebrained tax and spend policies of caving into fatcat lobbyists, paying off political cronies, and not delivering on promises made.
    Would you provide evidence of what I bolded above? I have no idea what you're talking about. Examples, please.

    I'm just happy that when I gloated about Obama winning in November 2008, I quietly gloated about it. I find public gloating repulsive.

    Oh, this is sweet and worthy of hefty gloating.

    Had I been a Democrat... last November, I would have gloated quietly too knowing the elected representative was not only hollow through and through, but had a history contrary to what he proclaimed himself to be.
    That would have made for a Shaddup moment... fer sure.
    Yeah we won... I hope he doesn't fark it up too badly.

    This isn't one of those moments.

    It's time to send a message... load and clear.
    It's time to thunder gloat for a few days, rub Obama's and the Propagandists (Mainstream media) noses in it.

    Then... we must get to work to clean up the crap in our own party and make sure Obama's Socialist scheming fails.

    I was just told by ANOTHER liberal here that Brown was a social conservative...a day before the election.

    Which is it? or is this a concerted effort by liberals to somehow minimize the significance of this to the public, so as to cast doubt on social conservativism?

    Not a day goes by that I do not hope for another Reagan. If Brown is it, I welcome him whole-heartedly.

    Until 2012 when the seat is up for election as usual.
