    One look at Mr. Brown and the rest of us citizens should stop in our tracks.
    He has the appearance of someone who would bite.

    I am so dumbfounded that MA would vote for a republican after the stranglehold Kennedy had over the state I cannot believe it. I apologize MA, I thought you guys would vote for any democrat....

    Remember, it is NOT Kennedy's seat. It is the people's seat. Go Scott.
    I think that it is time to collect donations for Hearing Aids. Apparently, Obama and his administration have difficulty hearing what voters are saying.

    It has to be a joke. The hypocrisy of the sanctimonious right is backing a COSMO nude male model.

    Zoolander for Senate? LOL

    Well hey, let's give these the republicans back what they call their country and see what hell America is going to be in. It just makes me sick after 8 years of B.S that America does not see what is really going on here. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

    I've told my story before Martha Coakley's office discriminated against me after they agreed to represent me – went to there office and they twisted all my evidence I had including a probable cause letter from the Massachussetts Discrimination Board who found in my favor – if she runs her office like this I can just imagine her as a Senator.

    I am an indenpent and I'm going to vote for Scott Brown because I think he is the kind of person Massachusetts needs. I also e-mailed him and he answered me back.

    Please what would the late Senator Kennedy think a GOP Senator to replace him? People really the last thing we need in Washington D.C. is another right wing nut!

    Mass. voters please get to the polls and vote for Martha Coakley.

    We voted for change last year, now give it a chance. If you replace Ted Kennedy with a Republican you'll just be going back to those awful 8 years that didn't work under Republican leadership. Hello. Anyone remember this??

    Seriously...........WHO CARES what any of the Kennedy's "think". They do not OWN the seat.

    The Democratic Party-–including Ted---are/were NOT JFK Democrats.

    The Democratic Party has been hijacked by loony left liberals. Based on JFK's policies--even he would have butted heads with Ted over his left leaning agendas/policies.

    Yes, let get out and vote the GOP back in to office. They screwed America up from 94-06 they almost had it destroyed it is time to let them finish. I also want Palin/Bachman '12 so we can get more nut jobs in office...Sarah makes a good living selling her book of fiction she did not even write..

    As Scott Brown said during a debate....this is not Ted Kennedy's seat, it's the people's seat.

    WOW...finally someone running for office that has it correct.

  18. Man of the People or Another Shill for Wall Steet?

    Brown's campaign is being financed by Wall Street (Freedom Works and Dick Armey). Do you wonder why he is against the "Wall Street" tax?

    Meet the new boss . . .

    If we are once again swayed by the aggressive and deceptive appeals to our biases, prejudices and self-focused concerns, in the near future we are very likely to be here again, only then the circumstances will be even more dire as the costs of the new self-serving irresponsibility will then be added on top of the current drastic problems. To now repeat our blind acceptance of the deceptive rhetoric offered to rationalize as ‘conservative’ their bold total concentration on benefiting Special Interests and a select few while giving the majority only apathy, the costs and an abundance of subterfuge can only result in more significant loss for the vast majority. Failing to be objective and responsibly rational in recognizing the control and manipulation executed over their ‘puppet’ representatives by the influential, powerful and wealthy few is simply to be self-flagellant. Should we allow ourselves to be influenced by their appeals to our self-interests regarding concern over the costs to straighten things out now and support them in further neglecting reform, we will have only ourselves to fault. We need our representatives to be honestly responsible to us and not just loyal to Special Interests and a select few who overtly and covertly strongly support and control them. We really need to be diligent in holding them responsible to do so and stubbornly firm in rejecting them when they seek to do otherwise. Otherwise don’t blame them.

    To Diane.....

    I would love to vote for elephants again, but right now is not the time. As for Coakley, Tim Kaine is a weak DNC Chairmen. Where is Dean? Love that man! So much fire and so much guts!!!

    Correction!! There is no way for the Senate vote to take place by the end of next week. The CBO once it gets this hidden, corrupt 2500 page monstrosity will need one week to score. Then it has to be passed by the House. Before it gets thru the house the GOP will make them read the entire bill at every point possible. Assume 2 full days to read the bill alone and then then normal time between votes.

    Once it passes there, the Senate GOP will have even more power to slow down the process thru the rules of the Senate. Expect the bill to be read in full at least twice, once at cloture and once at the final vote. Both houses will be trying to make amendments to it at the same time, since they took the coorupt way around reconciliation process, so each time it gets ping-ponged back to the other house, it will get read in its entirety. Best guess, if Coakley win would be late Feb early March. If Brown wins, the whole thing goes away then the Dums will be forced to work on real legislation.

    A vote for an elephant = a vote to stay in the stone-age = a vote for Scrooges = a vote to bring back the past 8 years = a vote for the party that offshored your jobs = why do you want to repeat the same mistake?

    I LOVE elephants but it is not the right time to bring them back. DONKEYS need 8 years to change America and make it a GREAT country, the way Clinton made it a #1 destination for a strong economy.

    Please dont be stupid, patience.....

    This Republican candidate is nothing but another do-nothing Republican who wants to continue to vote NO on everything to restore America and make the lives of Americans better. He is a TEA BAGGER – should that not say it all???

    Let's keep Ted Kennedy's seat as the shining example of real public service and real care and concern for the American People. Coakley is an intelligent, experience, popular Attorney General. She has everything it take to make a truly great Senator who will actually WORK for much-need change. We need Senators who love this country and will restore it – not more hateful Republicans who are determined to destroy it and reach their goal to make us fail. We don't need any more Republican hate and fear mongers doing nothing but obstructing all efforts to help America.

    Put the correct person in the Senate – COAKLEY – who will serve the People and work to move America forward. She has integrity, character, and wants to see America strong again. We need her!
    Get out and vote for the only REAL public servant who will do what she says she will do – vote COAKLEY!

  24. go-go Scott..Brown

    This is the peoples' seat and not Kennedy-seat...so you Kennedy get off your high horse...democracy shall prevail...vote "Scott Brown"

    January 16, 2010 01:38 pm at 1:38 pm |
  25. Vote 4 Scott

    Scott is a better candidate. Period.

    If you watched the debate, it is clear. Not only is he better informed, but he is smarter and, unlike his competition, doesn't feel entitled to the seat.

    MA already has Barney Frank, who helped create the ecomonic disaster with his 'oversight' of Fanny and Freddie Mac (yes, he was warned by the previous administration 17 times since 2003 that there was a huge problem, but he did nothing). Do you want another 'Barney' representing us?
