In epic upset, GOP’s Brown wins Mass. Senate race
BOSTON (AP) – In an epic upset in liberal Massachusetts, Republican Scott Brown rode a wave of voter anger to win the U.S. Senate seat held by the late Edward M. Kennedy for nearly half a century, leaving President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul in doubt and marring the end of his first year in office.

Addressing an exuberant victory celebration Tuesday night, Brown declared he was “ready to go to Washington without delay” as the crowd chanted, “Seat him now.” Democrats indicated they would, deflating a budding controversy over whether they would try to block Brown long enough to complete congressional passage of the health care plan he has promised to oppose.

“The people of Massachusetts have spoken. We welcome Scott Brown to the Senate and will move to seat him as soon as the proper paperwork has been received,” said Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin said he would notify the Senate on Wednesday that Brown had been elected.

The loss by the once-favored Democrat Martha Coakley in the Democratic stronghold was a stunning embarrassment for the White House after Obama rushed to Boston on Sunday to try to save the foundering candidate. Her defeat on Tuesday signaled big political problems for the president’s party this fall when House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates are on the ballot nationwide.

To paraphrase John Paul Jones, ‘We have not yet begun to fight!’ and embarrassment for the White House has only just begun as well!

A while back, I’m sure you all remember, Michelle Obama said, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.” Well folks, I can’t say that. You see, I have always been proud of my country!

What I can say is this, for the first time in over a year I am proud to say that I don’t feel that this nation is headed into the abyss. For the first time in over a year I got a peaceful and relaxed night of sleep and rest.

The people of Massachusetts stood and spoke, in a strong voice, ‘This is THE PEOPLES SEAT’, and by God, they meant it! The good people of Massachusetts did what was thought to be very nearly impossible, they have elected a Republican Senator! They have done the RIGHT thing!

And surely we ALL saw this coming.

Dems cast blame at each other over Senate campaign

WASHINGTON (AP) – The buck stops … Well, it was hard to tell just where the buck stopped Tuesday when it came to the Democratic party’s loss of the Massachusetts Senate seat that had been held by Edward M. Kennedy for nearly half a century.

Days before Republican state Sen. Scott Brown officially captured the seat over Democrat Martha Coakley, Washington to Boston began dodging blame and pointing fingers at each other.

Cool-headed analysis of what was driving independents from Coakley to Brown? No. The issue was who botched Democrat Martha Coakley’s Senate campaign more: her state people or national Democrats.

Most spoke the classic Washington way, under the cloak of anonymity. But President Barack Obama’s senior adviser took precise, public aim at Coakley’s camp as Brown closed in on the late Sen. Edward Kennedy’s seat.

Dems cast blame at each other over Senate campaign

I haven’t seen it yet but I have heard they are even blaming George W. Bush.

That can’t be confirmed yet, but I have to ask, didn’t the Dems say that Bush was as ignorant as a pump handle? Didn’t they say he was the dumbest man on the planet? Well, if Bush is THAT dumb, how did he manage to get all the folks in Massachusetts to vote for Scott Brown?

Had to be that evil Karl Rove I suppose, the Dems haven’t blamed him yet have they? :twisted:

No seat needs to be held by anyone, from ANY party, for nearly half a century, I don’t care what the branch of government is. The reign of Teddy *Swimmer* Kennedy was nothing less than a travesty and only reinforces the obvious need for term limits on ALL public officials, Executive, Legislative and Judicial.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely! And the longer it lingers, the worse it becomes!

To all of the great folks in Massachusetts that did the RIGHT thing, THANK YOU! And congratulations to Senator Scott Brown!

    Good! This is a f*ck you to that bastard teddy. It ain’t over though. Now we have to worry about the 2010 elections in Congress and in Texas. I sure hope that between ACORN & Co., the useful idiots, the illegals, and the damn yankees we don’t end up with the RINO (KBH), the gun grabber (White), or the hair care jihadist (Shami). We have our work cut out for us.

  2. extex_cop says:

    I think this election sent a BIG message to the Democrats and the Republicans. They had better start listening to the people and do what we want…or you are OUT !!!

    This is just the first of many….now THEY will be losing their jobs.

  3. Texasgal says:

    I am thrilled that Brown won. The country now has a much brighter future…IF Brown follows up on all HE pledged. Politicians do have a habit of lying to us. But, I have so much more hope than I did yesterday that we can get things turned around and stop Obama in his tracks. Next question will be….how soon can he be seated and what will the Dems try to do to get the HC vote before he is there to stop it?

    America has made her voice heard. We do NOT want a one-party rule and I suspect that a lot of Dems will be seeing the door in Nov. Now, we need to make sure we do not slack off and keep the pressure up…cause the Dems will be fighting back with all they have. WE have to have more!!!!!

  4. minuteman26 says:

    Rifleman – You worry too much. Times are beginning to change; for the good. The Mass. election will have all nonconservatives running for the hills. Just be sure to support your local conservative. A raghead Governor in Texas? Not hardly.

  5. Vigilante says:

    I watched Scott Brown’s victory speech last night and was really enjoying it till he came to that part of giving special thanks to his new found friend for guiding and nurturing him along the way during his campaign……

    Senator JOHN McCAIN!!!!!

    Gag me with a frikkin spoon!! This is what happens when you get new people with GOOD intentions elected, and then some dammed old shitbag RINO has to start guiding him on how you DO things in DC. I only hope that he has his own set of balls or we’re just going to have more of the same old shit.

  6. TexasFred says:

    Did he say *friend* or did he say *colleague*?

  7. txhillcountry says:

    I was also concerned about the reference to John McCain. He is part of the Washington establishment that has put us in the situation we are in along with others like KBH. I also feel this is not only a wake-up call to the Dummocrats but also the “old Line Republicans. It is time for a conservative agenda, albeit I think the best position is a right-centrist, lower taxes, secure borders, heath care reform (Government get out of health care regulation and control), term limits for congress, and finally, if we get in a war, lets win it with finality by superior firepower and ultimate surrender.

  8. Longstreet says:

    Watch for the Dems to begin moving toward the middle of the political spectrum — to save their collective rear ends. Just as they “overreach” every time, they also triangulate, toward the middle, when they get caught. I have observed “those people,” as Gen Lee used to say, for a very long time now and that is what they do.

    We can’t let up for a single second. We MUST keep the pressure on. day and night, 24/7, until we can “throw the bums out” in NOVEMBER! Until then, keep fighting, fellow conservatives. Keep those Tea Parties brewing! I intend to continue firing broadsides as fast as I can load ‘em!

    JDL

  9. Longstreet nailed it! Keep ever vigilant, as well as your powder dry and never, ever, take your eyes off their hands. That way we will all know if he (Brown) signs off on anything that detracts from liberty and freedom.

    Bluto for President!

  10. …giving special thanks to his new found friend for guiding and nurturing him along the way during his campaign……

    Senator JOHN McCAIN!!!!!

    Gag me with a frikkin spoon”

    I too am concerned with that part of Brown’s statement, but being from the extreme liberal leaning state of Mass., I think we can expect him to be right of center. We can’t dismiss the message the good people in MA have sent. But as Longstreet so astutely points out, we can hardly relax until the fight is over and freedom wins. I think Brown’s stance that the “seat belongs to the people” is welcome to people all across this nation and we need to take up the mantle and run with it! That is what our current, corrupt leaders have failed to understand.

  11. Robert says:

    A victory YES, a Conservative victory.. I don’t think so. I think we just got another McCain/Snowe type “R” in the senate… Better than the alternative for sure but NOT the best we could have hoped for.

    Look for the Demorats to start the amnesty push within the next couple of days, not that they care about Illegal Immigration so much, but they know it will fragment the Republicans, it will put Conservatives back on the attack against RINO’s and that’s what the Dems need to slow the momentum.

  12. TexasFred says:

    Robert, the more I hear him speak, the more correct I am thinking you are on this…

  13. A Republican from Mass is more apt to be like Romney… not all that conservative, but better than a shilling libber. That’s why we must be vigilant and press on demanding that the RNC raise the bar for candidates or a 3rd party will screw us in 2010. And I agree with Robert. If they can pass amnesty, they will increase their voter base before fall. They will do it for that reason, as that has been their mindset for at least a decade.

  14. TexasFred says:

    SCOTT BROWN FOR PRESIDENT 2012?? Oh Please…

    He hasn’t done anything yet and there’s a FB group touting him for POTUS??

    Are these people crazy or are they THAT desperate??

    For crying out loud folks, KEEP IT REAL, we have some serious fights ahead, and this thing, this *group* is a serious waste of time and effort!

    Don’t go off into this La-la land, reality is about to bite a lot of people in the ass if Brown turns out to be another Olympia Snowe…

    He was bragging about his friend John McCain? Give me a break… If McCain is his friend and mentor, Mass is better off than they would be with a Dem, WE are better off, at least at 1st glance, but damn…

  15. I saw that crap on FB. Geeez, people are really learning the importance of following voting records and vetting candidates properly aren’t they??? Guess they haven’t felt enough pain yet Fred!!!!

  16. Vigilante says:

    HAM
    You are right about passing that amnesty bullshit before fall.
    If Scott Brown tends to keep listening to assholes like mccain, then they will have ANOTHER bleeding heart in their favor. John, go home and play with the flowers in your front yard. You served your country well in VN (and thanks),but now you’re getting past your usefullness in the government, and almost senile. GO HOME!!!

  17. John McPain has passed into the realm of useful idiots… it’s time for him to retire indeed!!! :-)

  18. Silver Fox says:

    Last night was great for the people in MA and great for the nation. It will be nice to see the democrats squirm for a while. I think their will be some movement in Congress toward the center on the part of the Dems. but the White House will remain on its radical course, even if it means going over the cliff.

    I didn’t expect Brown to win and honestly was shocked. I watched a little of CNN last night and even David Gergen admitted that the Tea Parties had more effect that he had originally given them credit for—bascially he said they came in below his radar, Hell the whole MSM missed them and most still will not admit what is happening. They are still pointing to the candidate, Coakley, and not to the issue that sunk them in the Bay State.

    This election is not about the one vote Brown will bring to the Senate, but rather the sea change that has occured since Jan ’09. Many democrats will be reluctant to continue blindly following Obama and the democratic leadership in Congress—things are changing and many Obamaites will be running for cover in the next few weeks.

  19. TexasFred says:

    Lets now hope that Brown remains conservative and that the people of Massachusetts don’t get a *Snowe Job*…

  20. Isn’t Howard Dean the “Original Useful Idiot”???? :-)

  21. TexasFred says:

    If ya look in your Funk & Wagnalls under MOONBAT, there’s a pic of Howie! :twisted:

  22. Vincent says:

    And Obama implies that Bush is to blame for this loss.
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8470187.stm

    [[Asked for his assessment of the Republican victory a year after taking office, President Obama told ABC: "The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office."

    "People are angry and they are frustrated. Not just because what has happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years." ]]

  23. TXSonOfLiberty says:

    YEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAA!!!!! Glad the Libtards lost!!!!!!

    The ‘Fat Lady’ has sung and it wasn’t Martha Coakley!!!

    This is only the first small step…….and remember, he’s a Massachusetts Republican….. in Texas he’d be a Democrat. I’m happy he won…..but…

    Keep Your Powder Dry!!

  24. Mr Pink Eyes says:

    Yes, thank you Massachusetts! Did you ever think that you would utter those words? In December Brown was 20 points down, before the last debate he was 9 points down. Then came the now infamous line about the “people’s seat” and he was thrust into the lead just days afterward. That one line won him the election, but there was an ad that he ran just before the debate that gained him some momentum also. In this ad he compared himself to Kennedy– John Kennedy, he played a clip from JFK calling for tax cuts as a means to grow the economy and them stated that he was more like JFK in regards to taxes than was Martha Coakley. This ad got the momentum going in his favor before the debate and he never looked back.
