There was a political race in Massachusetts this week that was felt across the nation probably stronger that it was there.
Republican Scott Brown’s victory will likely grind President’s Obama’s agenda to a halt and portend unexpected losses for Democrats in the November midterm elections.
Republican, democrat, independent, or whatever the party, may sometime in the very near future begin listening to the people instead of their own party agenda.
The American people voted for Obama because they wanted “Change” from the old style, cram it down your throat politics. Change that would put American back to work and get our economy back to an acceptable level.
Health care has been the big issues in the past several months and no one agrees more than we do there is a drastic need for change.
But why cannot Washington do anything without making the behind the door deals, sending millions to one while increasing taxes to others. Health care is needed but cannot it be accomplished without giving special deals to unions while other workers pay the bills.
Maybe this drastic change in Massachusetts will open the eyes of both parties. To now have a Republican in the office of long time Senator Ted Kennedy is just unthinkable. Early poles had given Democrat Martha Brown as much as a 30 percent lead only to see that dwindle daily to the 52-47 percent loss.
Most political analysis report it was simple a revolt by the voters to show the Obama administration they did not like the behind the door politics simply to pass an agenda that the majority seem to oppose.
We were reading an article from American Thinker by Geoffrey P. Hunt this week and he is predicting Obama to be heading down a very rough road.
He stated, “Barrack Obama is on track to have the most spectacularly failed presidency.
Obama is failing. Failing big. Failing fast. And failing everywhere: foreign policy, domestic initiatives, and most importantly, in forging connections with the American people. The incomparable Dorothy Rabinowitz in the Wall Street Journal put her finger on it: He is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them. Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard says he is failing because he has lost control of his message, and is overexposed. Clarice Feldman of American Thinker produced a dispositive commentary showing that Obama is failing because fundamentally he is neither smart nor articulate; his intellectual dishonesty is conspicuous by its audacity and lack of shame.
But, there is something more seriously wrong: How could a new president riding in on a wave of precedented promise and goodwill have forfeited his tenure and become a lame duck? His poll ratings are in free fall. In generic balloting, the Republicans have now seized a big advantage. This truly is unbelievable. What's going on?
