Best news since November '08!

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Finally a message
Hopefully the administration will eventually figure out there are quite a few of us who don't like what they're doing....

I think it sends a resounding message... especially considering the state that was the Democrats nest... that this country is standing up.... BIG TIME.

This is the beginning of the end of Obama's dictatorship.

Un frikkin believable!!!!

Taxachussets replaces Dead Kennedy after 47 years at the snap of a finger.... during Obamas tenure.

Here's your sign

Republican Scott Brown has won a shock victory in the race for the US Senate seat in Massachusetts left vacant by Democrat Edward Kennedy's death.

The result is a huge blow to President Barack Obama, whose healthcare reform programme is now in doubt.

Democrat Martha Coakley conceded she had lost the race after early results gave Mr Brown a healthy lead.

The Republican win has robbed the Democrats of their filibuster-proof 60-seat majority in the Senate.

This will make it much harder for Mr Obama to pass a healthcare reform bill - the most important domestic policy objective of his first year as president.

'Senator Beefcake'

The BBC's Paul Adams, in Boston, says Ms Coakley's defeat is a humiliating defeat for the Democrats, and a deeply unwelcome anniversary present for President Obama exactly one year after his inauguration.


He adds that it is one of the biggest political upsets in years - in a seat held for almost half a century by Edward Kennedy, a Democratic Party colossus, who died last year.

In his victory speech, Mr Brown, 50, said that the voters of Massachusetts had "delivered a great victory".

He said: "Tonight, the voters of this commonwealth defied the odds and the experts."

He also made clear he would join his Republican colleagues in trying to block President Obama's healthcare reform proposals.

Mr Brown led Ms Coakley by 52% to 47% with virtually all votes counted; a third candidate got less than one per cent.

Dubbed Senator Beefcake in the US media, Mr Brown is a lawyer and former model who posed almost naked for Cosmopolitan magazine in the 1980s while in law school.

'No sugar-coating'

After conceding the election in a telephone call to Mr Brown, Ms Coakley told her supporters she was "heartbroken at the result".


"This is a calamity for the Democrats, all the more on the very day the president has been in power a year."
Mark Mardell

Sen Robert Menendez, head of the Senate Democrats' campaign committee, said he had "no interest in sugar-coating" the result.

"There is a lot of anxiety in the country right now," he added. "Americans are understandably impatient."

President Obama had campaigned personally on behalf of Ms Coakley.

Analysts say the race should have been an easy win for her in a state which has traditionally voted for Democratic candidates for the US Senate.

I was quite pleasantly surprised as I watched last evening's news and discovered that Scott Brown was now our Senator Elect. I hope his swearing in is not delayed.

I think changes are in the wind here in Massachusetts. Democrates are going to be facing an up-hill battle in upcoming elections. They just can't keep giving the money away. I don't know about you, but my pockets are not a bottomless pit. It has to stop somewhere. Maybe it's starting to be stopped right here in Massachusetts.

god bless Mass!!! Never thought I'd say that. I never understood Mass's fascination with the Kennedy's. Especially Gin Blossom.
Thankfully, you guys really woke up this time and came thru for the country. We all owe you a huge "Thank-You" and push forward to this years elections.

Well Done Mass!!!!!!!!!

Teddy is rolling in his grave. HA HA HA I think Mary Jo was an angel on Scott Browns shoulder during his campaign that prevailed him to victory.
It's about time 6 decades maybe I will move back to the Boston area after all.

Bammy wanted "CHANGE". Now he has it, just not what he wanted.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
