A scathing editorial from the liberal paper of Mass.

Blame Obama - The Boston Globe

Instead of transparency and bipartisanship, this is what obama has brought; Setting aside the massive increases in spending, this summarizes perfectly;

Quote:
It was party-line votes on 2,000-page bills. It was “cash-for-cloture’’ backroom deals. It was tone-deaf boasts about millions of jobs “created or saved,’’ even as unemployment soared into double digits and millions of American jobs disappeared.

Above all, it was the attempt to force through a radical health-care overhaul that would drive up the cost of medical insurance, slash Medicare by half a trillion dollars, and subject one-seventh of the US economy to government micromanagement.
This is a stunning condemnation from the bluest of blue states, for all that obama has wrought on this country.

NO longer can the media ignore his broken promises, his lies, his thug-style politics - the people have other ways to find out what their government is doing...to them.

If they lose in MA, you're gonna see the Dems start blaming the Repubs for the failure of their healthcare "reform" bill.

Are the Democrats handing out $100 bills on street corners in Mass. yet ?
Somehow I would not be shocked or surprised if they were.

Since it is CLEAR the nation wants the republicans to do all they can to stop this monstrosity, that's a very good thing.

Of course it would not be their party's fault. They are doing everything they can but the Repubs seem to be preventing them. Imagine if the Repubs had more numbers and could actually do something ?

How much longer will Democratic voters buy this "Repubs are preventing us from doing our job" propaganda ? The Republicans today cannot stop the Dems from doing anything they want and pass any bill they want.

I don't understand why the Dems are still saying that and why some voters are still buying that. Do people not realize the Dems have total control ?

The Dems should be stark raving mad at their own elected Representatives but deflection and finger pointing seems to be the game these days.

The Donks are still trapped in the Bush Derangement Syndrome Mental Prison. The Massachusetts residents may be ready to break free. For that, they can thank rather than blame the ZeroMan.

be honest sanrene, if obama was running in place of coakley he'd be up 15-20 points.

he has high favorables in mass, 53 approve 34 disaprove 13 undecided.

coakley is a horrible candidate who isnt getting the local dems enthused.

scott brown himself is a liberal who is pro choice, running as a republican, and has the likes of SEIU backing him, unions that people like sanrene bash but praise now because they back someone on her side.

im still amazed at how people are conned into this two party system.

this scott brown is more liberal then that dede scozzafa in ny-23.

has nothing to do with obama, moreso with a horrible dem candidate and a liberal republican that people in a liberal state would vote for.

I'm sure the democrats will try to convince people of this...but it won't work.

Brown is running directly as the 41st vote that will kill obamacare - can't get any more national than that.

This is Teddy The Swimmer's seat, one he has held for 46 years, the dems are campaigning for this seat to save the lifetime cause of Teddy, which is health care.

You're going to have to come up with better spin than that. The media knows the truth, they have been reporting it - this is a referendum on obama's radical policies.

This is all about Obama.

I have said for months that Obama and his policies and lack of leadership, poor decisions and zero accomplishments will bring down the entire dem party.

Like or not, if Brown pulls this out, Obama will be the focus of blame because of his horrible record.

It kinda makes you wonder about the liberals on this board and their ability to actually comprehend what is going on around them. Nothing can exemplify that better than their rhetoric on the "party of no." In the end they will have marginalized themselves, watch.
