Special Election Next Tuesday

***UPDATE***
A Coakley aide roughed up a "Weekly Standard" reporter. It can't be good for Coakley.

"Coakley said she is not “privy” to the facts surrounding the incident..." (hat tip Guy Faulkes for link)

Thanks to Guy Faulkes for the topic and the links.

To borrow a phrase from the thought provoking and brutally bombastic Johnny Rico, "This ought to be interesting".

That was a great rebuttal. You can tell in his answer he is a bigot (the new version anti-socialized health-care bigot), so he may have trouble being elected. Unless, of course, Obama will accept his apology in the name of all African-Americans. But he won't, because he is the political opposition.

Did anyone note the CNN poll on Obamas Presidency? 48% say he is a failure while 47% think he is not. One year in and CNN is now reporting in on a NEGATIVE story on Obama.

This link pretty much sums up my opinion. If Brown finishes within ten percentage points in the second most liberal state in the union, the liberals have more trouble than they can handle.

This election is close enough that the liberal socialist sheep are bringing in the head sheep to try and help out. The draft dodging, dope smoking, dully eyed slug Billy Clinton will be there himself to try and raise support for the Democrats. Like Faulks said, if the spread is less than 10 points, it spells deep trouble for the Dems. Gotta love it.

Oh yes, and was I being BOMBASTIC? Fantastic!!!!!!!!

Honest Debate said...

Johnny Rico,

Bombastic is good if it's honest. It can be an art. You are an artist.

Honest Debate said...

I would be absolutely stunned if Brown pulls this off. Then again, I didn't believe New Jersey would ever elect a Republican Governor. The pendulum swings.

guy faulkes said...

I just read a poll that says Independents are supporting Brown 71 to 23 percent. Massachusetts has more Independents than either Republicans or Democrats. If this poll is true, then the times are indeed a changing.

I to will be stunned if Brown wins. I am beginning to believe he has a good chance to do so. However, even a close finish is a telling win for conservatives. As Rico says, the liberals have been forced to pull out all stops in a state that was supposed to be a sure thing.

Sarkazein said...

If the election is looking close, and ACORN is not stuffing the ballot box, many Democrats will stay home. This will be a victory for Brown. Mass has elected conservative governors in the past, since this is state-wide, and not district, it is probable Brown will win. Unless there is a recount, then the cheating will start as it did in Minnesota, and even if they win by only 129 ghost votes they will claim a huge victory.
So far I like this Brown guy. That "people's seat" rebuttal was quick, and accurate. I would have preferred a tad more sarcasm in his answer to Gergan, but his was just as effective.

Honest Debate said...

His response seemed genuine and unplanned. It seemed to me Brown found Gergan's premise truly offensive. It was.

Honest Debate said...

This is another example of it not being over until it's over. If Obama had his way health care would be law by now. Republicans have forced the can to be kicked down the road enough that the Dems may just loose their majority before the vote.

guy faulkes said...

More liberal intimidation:

ABC asks if conservatives have already won in Massachusetts even if Brown loses.

Thank you HD!!!!!

This race has become nationally significant on many levels. The liberals have already lost as it exemplifies the distress of the public over liberal policies, even in a liberal state such as Massachusetts. It is driving more nails into the liberal coffin regardless of the final outcome.

Even if Brown were to win provisions to keep from seating him until after the vote on the health care compromise is taken are being made. In the event Brown wins and the vote is taken before he is seated, it will cause a national scandal. The vote cold be delayed until the Senator that was elected by the people is eligible to vote. This will further hurt liberals in the 2020 elections.

A very interesting perspective on Massachusetts liberal politics. Is it negative campaigning or reporting facts? You decide.

It is no worse than what Coakley has put out about Brown in any case, except she has trouble citing sources. Does that sound like other liberals we know?

Johnny Rico said...

Coakley's campaign is in shambles. When her staffer assaulted the reporter, it was a sign of the Democrat's desperation. Why was FOX the only news channel to report on the assault?

Oh yeah, why won't Hussein Obama make an appearance in Mass to help Coakley? LOL!!!

Your ole pal

I just saw some things on the news.

Brown is ahead in the polls by 4%.

Coakley has said Catholics should not work in emergency rooms because their religion might cause them to not give people proper care. I am sure this will help her a lot.

Sarkazein said...

There are stories out now, saying Brown has pulled ahead in the polls. The bottom has dropped out of Coakley's poll numbers.

The leading law enforcement officer of Mass looks at the reporter after he was knocked to the ground by Mehan, but makes NO effort to come to his aid or witness an assault by her consultant. I think she is toast.

The question is, will the Democrat Party Bosses slip in another candidate at the last minute like they did with Toracelli (sp)?

Look out Brown, the Marxist thugs will do ALL necessary to ruin you.

Sarkazein said...

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said he doesn't think Brown will win in Tuesdays Mass senatorial election even though Brown leads in the polls. Either he doesn't know he is the spokesman for the White House, not the DNC, or he thinks he knows the fix is in.
Either way he's an idiot.

Honest Debate said...

Could it really happen? It's looking so. A Brown win means health care's dead. Waterloo.

guy faulkes said...

HD, I must once again respectfully disagree. A Brown win does not mean health care is dead. The liberal machine will find some way to keep him from being seated until after the vote on the bill in order to gain control of the power they desire. They are willing to lose their seats or be thrown under the bus, as the case may be, to archive their socialist goals. As evidenced from the little we know if the backroom deals that have been cut to get this bill where it is, the potential for bribery and malfeasance is unlimited. They realize that the nails are being driven in their political coffins, so they feel they have nothing to lose.

It does not matter if Brown wins or if the race is stolen from him (as is likely). The die is cast. The fact a Republican was able to garner support like this in Massachusetts indicates people are tired of politicians that think they are our masters. The times, they are a changing.

Honest Debate said...

Gosh Guy, I hope you're wrong. I hear you and I've heard others say the same thing. The Secretary of State has already threatened to drag it out by recounting absentee ballots and such. Even though it's apparent the Obama administration and the Democrats are not exercising the will of the people I can't believe they could get away with such treason. Brown's ascendancy is a direct result of the desire to kill health care.

I still can't let myself believe that Brown has a chance so it's all probably moot.

Sarkazein said...

I think the final secret bill being discussed behind closed doors still has to get a final vote after conference.
If Brown is allowed to win the election, it may change the minds of the more conservative Democrats before they cast the final vote.

Sarkazein said...

Or, is the conference the final vote before sending it to Obama?

Sarkazein said...

Obama's rally today for Coakley had all the Democrats blaming President Bush for all of today's woes.
The Kennedy speaking there, didn't even know Coakley's first name and continuously got it wrong.

Obama will be the first President that will go through puberty in office, unless his self-admitted drug abuse delays that too.

guy faulkes said...

I heard on the news last night that the House was considering approving the Senate version as is to avoid there having to be another vote in the Senate if Brown is elected.

Sarkazein said...

Like he needs to say it.

guy faulkes said...

Sark, excellent link. After viewing this, where are our liberal friends condemning talk show commentators? What if Rush had said this?

I also saw that 19 states are going to challenge the national health care bill if it passes, either legislatively through legislation in the states or though the courts as to wheather it is constitutional.

Sarkazein said...

Well, here we go. Cigar or no cigar, that is the question.

Sarkazein said...

FIRE UP THE CIGARS!

Sarkazein said...

Do you think any of the staffers have gotten up the nerve to interrupt Obama watching his biography again to tell him he has just caused the impossible to happen?

guy faulkes said...

That sucking sound you hear is caused by air rushing into the space formerly occupied by liberals now moving to the right, The nest time you hear it will be when they are moving out of Washington because they were defeated in the 2010 elections.

The interesting thing about this race is that Brown did not campaign against Coakley. He campaigned against Obama's policies and won by a landslide.

I now think it is possible for Conservatives to gain control of both Houses.

Sarkazein said...

The tone deaf, child-like President blamed Bush for Scott Brown's election, saying voters were upset about the past 8 years.

Liberal POV said...

"The tone deaf, child-like President blamed Bush for Scott Brown's election, saying voters were upset about the past 8 years."

Who else could you blame for wrecking the world economy? Wall Street bankers? It was still on Bush's watch.
I will also give Bush credit for doing the right thing in preventing it from being even worst with the bank bail out. We should have had those responsible behind bars with lesser criminals.

guy faulkes said...

POV, Bush deserves a lot of blame for his big government policies. This does not change the fact he was a piker when compared to the man child Messiah Obama. Congress gets a large share of the blame.

Hopefully this is along to be fixed as indicated by teh election results in New Jersey and Virginia last year, the bad scare the liberals had in New York and most telling of all, the Brown victory in Massachusetts.
