    You realize that Brown ran as a relatively moderate social conservative comparitive to the type of conservative you are, and what was in office for the past few years. He wasn't running on over turning Roe v. Wade, he wasn't running on a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

    The only part of the liberal platform this really points to is the Health Care platform, and even then to say that it shows "Americans" have rejected it when only a single state has, even if that state is definitely a blue one, is questionable.

    The republicans also didn't lose in 08 because they were trying to "act like liberals". McCain was actually trying to act more like the archtype conservative during the campaign than he had anytime in the 8 years prior. Palin was far from attmepting to act like a liberal.

    People throwing out this ignorant hyper partisan hack spin on both sides about why Republicans lost are at best delusional and at worst purposefully decieving and manipulating information because they don't give a damn about this country but simply scoring their own political points.

    Republicans lost because.......

    They had an extremely unpopular president from their party leaving the White House.

    The economy was doing poorly under the Republican President just prior to it.

    A segment of the republican base had became disengaged and disinterested in the party starting in 2006.

    A large segment of the base was unenthusiastic and unhappy about a John McCain candidacy.

    A extremely botched campaign by McCain that couldn't grab independents, and horrible political strategy after bringing Palin on making it even harder to get independents.

    The pop icon status of Obama, becoming not just a political pick but a "trendy" pick for people. It was suddenly "fashionable" to vote and be political interested for the first time in years upon years.

    The historical significance of an Obama election.

    The striking charismatic difference between Obama and McCain

    Etc

    People stupidly saying it was done largely because people "rejected the republican agenda" or because "Republicans acted like liberals" are just being intellectually dishonest or lazy in their examining of that situation.

    My kid coulda beat out Coakley and her defeat is, IMO, directly related to rejection of the far Left swing by our government.

    Coakley went into this race up, what? 30 points over Brown? This is a classic case of agenda rejection.

    48% of Mass. voters said that health care was their main issue. If that ain't agenda rejection, then I don't know what is.

    No one's making money, mostly because of the Liberal agenda. The same agenda that wants to force people to buy insurance, or be fined if they don't, all the while taxing healthcare plans of the working class, who aren't union members.

    Whose doing the bleeding?

    So wait...you are totally ok with it if the guy lied during the election to pander to groups you don't agree with and then turns around and does the opposite? Isn't being fed up with that kind of behavior what led to the dems losing the seat to start with?

    You might want to rethink that position just for the sake of that morality you seem to be so proud of.

    Wholesale panic set in yet, Dems?
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Incorrect and misleading as usual. The tax revenue generated would largely be the burden of corporate and upper echelon. But the fear mongering you are regurgitating was certainly effective in swaying voters.

    The taxing of healthcare plans was refused by the Dems after its proposal. And people are not making money because of the last eight-years of Republican economics. Its called the trickle-down effect and the pores have clogged!

    Nah. More like the sad realization that this country is not interested in fixing its problems even after seeing the consequences of putting conservatives in charge over the last 6 or 8 (depending on how you do the math) years.

    Re: GOP's Brown wins Mass. Senate seat in epic upset

    The fact that Mass. voters denied Kennedy his last wish (to pass healthcare reform) by voting in a candidate that ran on opposition to it leads me to believe that maybe Kennedy really didn't represent his constituents.
    Not only is it a slap in the face to the Dems and their totally crappy healthcare bill, but it's a kick in the balls to Teddy.
    It's funny to see the pundits all saying "Even though polls show that people like Obama as a person, they're voting against his policies" LOL. Sounds more to me that the people are scared of being labeled as racists, so they say they like him as a person but hate what he's doing to America.
    It's also funny to hear Dems say that Obama hasn't been able to do anything because he's been opposed at every turn. In reality, the Reps. didn't have enough votes in Congress to stop them from doing whatever they wanted. It's the moderate Dems who actually put the breaks on healthcare. America gave the Libs free reign last year and they royally screwed it up.

    Annnnnnnd, who do you really think is going to end up paying for that?

    The taxing of healthcare plans was refused by the Dems after its proposal. And people are not making money because of the last eight-years of Republican economics. Its called the trickle-down effect and the pores have clogged!
    The Dems have been running the show since 2007. Interesting how things started going to **** after they took the reins, eh?

    "If people don't vote the way I think they should, it's because they're stupid."

    Now there's the Kennedy spirit that was so absent yesterday.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
