    Does this man ever work ?
    BO, stay in DC, cut back on the parties, pay attention, and steer the ship to safety.

    After she has weathered the storm, then we can talk about your cabin remodeling dreams.

    Enough of the politicking!! Shouldn't Obama be concentrating on more deals for "Health Care"? What other issues might need his attention – Jobs, Afghanistan, Security ....

    A big mistake – if she loses this election, his direct involvement will further weaken and already weak President.

    Great! The Campaigner in Chief will trot out another hour long speech blaming the evils of the world on conservatives and Republicans and to ask everyone to ignore the billions of dollars in special deals the Democrats have used to buy support for their healthcare bill as well as the pork they added to every bill they've passed in the past year.

    I'm sure his support will be as useful as it was to Corzine in New Jersey and Deeds in Virginia. He's not going to have time for much else if he plans to campaign for all the Democratic crooks that want to get relected this year.

    I guess we can look forward to more whining from Mr. Brown.

  10. Won't do any good.......

    he's the reason she's trailing.....

    People do not want Obamacare

    People do not want socialism

    People do not want backroom bribes with no transparency

    People want an effective national security program that goes after terrorists instead of coddling them with lawyers and Miranda rights..

    Obama's trip to Mass. will only hurt Cokely more.....

    By the way .... Why doesn't CNN have an opinion poll for the latest back-room deal? UNIONS – Exempt from Health Care Taxes? Are you just trying to slip this major absurdity under the carpet?

    Just when we thought money, election fraud, Diebold hacker tricks and the like ruled our elections, WE NOW add Begging and Pleading without the knew service? This is very important, but to echo Michael Moore and others, we have Republicrats in charge so what could we HOPE to CHANGE? Peace

    Brilliant. If she loses he looks like loser too. Why would she want him there anyway. If it weren't for him she would not be in this pickle.

    Ha, ha, ha....BO must be getting more nervous seeing the polling for Mass. right now!!! It's a sign of things to come, sir. The party of no (as in no more of this crap) is going to make some strides.

  22. Democrats........

    distance yourself from Obama if you want to still have your job in November.......

    Can't you see the revolt in Mass.? Are you blind?

    The people are fed up.....fedup with the socialist agenda in Washington....fed up with the back room bribes and lack of promised transparency.......fed up with the likes of Pelosi and Reid.....

    Dems..save yourselves... bail out now and vote "NO" on Obamacare....

    Now Coakley is absolutely finished and this will be another notch of failure in Obamas belt. This administration and its affiliates are a disgrace and history will pinpoint this administration as a failed experiment that America came to regret.

  24. Fed Up With Dems

    This keeps getting better and better! When is the Liar In Chief going to realize that they aren't just voting against Coakley, they are voting against his policies as well?

    At some point we have to expect these government officials to gain some common sense and realize that they are the problem and not the solution.

    Lets go Massachusetts, vote for Brown and send a message to those political nimrods that refuse to listen to the American People!
