MSNBC reported to be devastated. Currently working on "loss" narrative stating that the voters of MA are now stupid. Seeking angle to blame Bush. Obama claims he was not called in soon enough. Quoted as saying "I can't do it all!"

Wow. Other than Obama going up there for a rally, what else happened to move it up that fast?

I hope Scott Brown wins. Even though I am unemployed I gave him some money. If he can stop this vast expansion of government it would be worth it.

Bubble warning! Political bubble-o-meter needle is indicating “burst”.

VA pop. NJ pop-pop. MA pop-pop-boom! Burst bubble on one’s face is not attractive.

One can only wonder what the seismic readings will be beneath Washington DC come Tuesday evening!

Those folks in Massachusetts are making a real statement.

If we're the "far-right Teabaggers" then I think we're about to find out who the Teabagee's are.

Obey Obama: MSNBC currently working on "loss" narrative stating that the voters of MA are now stupid.

How right they are! Sending wave after wave of the most liberal dems to Washington for generations. They've finally awakened to the dire consequences and are reversing course.

I thought there were a lot of moderate and conservative Democrats in Congress. Yet, it seems, they all went hog wild voting for the most liberal ideas, including the hostile takeover of the private sector, big spending, big deficits, and raising taxes.

Peak Trader,

Someone, I forget who, recently said when the chips are down all Democrat politicians are Liberals.

Scott Brown may actually win on Tuesday, but that doesn't mean he will be going to Washington, D.C.:

Destroying the integrity of U.S. elections has been a longtime project for the far left. For over a decade, elected Democrats have manipulated the American people into believing their counterfeit altruistic intentions to enable more citizens to vote. Though largely flying under the radar, they’ve been looking for ways to use our legislative system to trump up fraudulent votes and their subterfuge knows no boundaries.

In 1993 Congress passed the National Voter Registration Act, commonly called “motor voter.” Under the deception that it would boost voter turnout, the bill laid the foundation for much of the voter fraud we’ve seen over the last 15 years.

Motor voter set stringent provisions and regulations to restrict states’ abilities to remove names from the voter registry.

Consequently, people who have died or moved away from many states are still registered to vote there, and many eligible voters are registered multiple times. Several states have more registered voters than actual citizens. For example, Colorado has a million more registered voters than citizens who are eligible to vote. And, at one time, some counties in Missouri had as much as 153% of their population registered to vote.

I hope you are right. Anything to stop this Health Care garbage the Congress is trying to shove down us.

I hope when Scxott Brown gets to Congress he targets the most obvious runaway federal socialism of all: The Agriculture Department.
I support abolition of the Ag Department. Just wipe it out.

For a man who was hailed as highly intelligent (at least, that was the hype), it is amazing that Obama has not learned 3 very simple things:

1. How to apologise
2. How much resistance is created when you try to push your views on others
3. How offensive it is when you dismiss the concerns of others who have views that do not align with your own (think calling people "teabaggers" that likely to make someone feel respected or understood...or even heard?)

"Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views." - William F. Buckley

Love the Buckley quote!
