Scott Brown Wins!
I for one is so happy that Scott Brown won the Massachusetts special election to fill the vacancy in the Senate left behind by Ted Kennedy's passing. As a Libertarian, I am happy when one party does not dominate both the White House and Congress, in this case, the Senate. The people of MA have spoken, and it's reverberating across our country today. The bluest of blue states has turned red, which is pretty amazing since Obama won MA by 27 percentage points just over a year ago. Democrats and liberals scan spin it anyway they want, but Brown's win is a referendum of Obama's radical policies of tax and spend, shady backdoor negotiations, broken promises of transparency, sweet deals for unions, buying votes and a nightmare of a health care bill. The Dems made fun of the Tea Parties, and dismissed them as teabagging rednecks, Nazis, and racists. But it was nothing of the sort. It was the people getting their country back, and rejecting Obama's radical polices for our country. Obama's biggest mistake is ignoring the needs of the people: jobs and the economy. With double-digit unemployment, how is it possible that Obama's biggest concern was to pass a health care bill which would absorb 1/6th of our country's economy, and which over 55% of the population was rejecting? Everyone I know, knows someone who has lost his or her job in the past few months. It's like Bill Clinton said: "It's the economy, stupid."
