    Well....when the people who voted for Brown get their health insurance canceled, or more likely when the rates are jacked so high they can no longer afford it at all...they'd better not blame anyone but themselves.

    Please Mr. President be tougher on Wall Street. Live up to your campaign promises. And don't worry about making friends with Wall St. They have demonstrated they only have 1 use for us, MAKE MORE BONUS MONEY FOR THEMSELVES.

    Can you believe it?
    A "conservative" taking the seat of Ted "Killer" Kennedy.
    Ya think this might send a wakeup call to the "big spenders" in D.C.?

    I am on the left & wanted change. I wasn't on the Obama band wagon. but a mavrick/paline ticket wasn't it. Obama has been a disappointment but to vote for a republican on Kennady's 47 years of service is an insult. have it the repulican way more military spending which obama did. But lets forget insurance to the working class which are about 30% who don't have insurance. Lets not complain about the Defense Budget which the military is just 1 of 10 parts to that. We live under the military industrial complex. no republican never says we can aford all those foreign mulitary bases. war budgets, CIA budgets, on and on and on maybe know one knows that all this is increasing. Speak out against washington win a seat. Speak of change win a seat. talk a populist talk win a seat. Nothing for our infastructure everything for Defense budgets thats how the Repulicans and dems like it.

    I hate this country! What is wrong with Massachusetts voters? Do we not want to help the deplorable healthcare situation of this country. We are a country without a soul.

    Reason #1: The short term memory of the American public. It seems people cannot remember what happened 2 1/2 months ago let alone what happened a year ago, or 8 years ago.

    Reason #2: Unrealistic expectations or the Instant Gratification Mentality. The American people have this misconception that problems that took years to develop will only take a few months to remedy themselves.

    Because of this history will repeat itself in a vicious cycle making it virtually impossible for significant progressive policy to move forward. In the end it will be the people's fault for this stagnation of action as the US continually loses ground as a world leader.

    (I) Have the power. Regardless of your political affiliation, (I), not you decide the momemtum of American politics. While you may win the temporary battle and gloat about it the next day, (I) will always win the war. NO party has ever learned this lesson, the (D) in 94 and again now, the (R) in 2002, (I) will always be your mentor. Tonigh may the student atempt to learn the lesson, even (I) will have to teach it to you over and over again.

    I.m still a Democrat......Yes and I think the Corporatist Republicans suck; They are a disgrace. But a Healthcare Bill that does not control costs is pure stupidity. But it does sicken me that so many good people approve of the Republican agenda which in no way supports the middle classs in the U.S. Nixon was the last middle class Republican.

    People have a short memory. All I have to say is "Vote Republican. Suffering builds character".

  18. Tom L.

    The proverbial bucket of water has been splashed. Will the Democrats wake up and get the message or continue to stubbornly push forward with an unpopular agenda?

    A Republican just won a Senate seat in Massachusetts. 'Nuff said.

  20. If You Want Something Ruined Let a Democratic Community Organizer Run It

    The left wing nuts are gonna try a ram the health care farce through in the next day or so. Obama the logo president claims the losses in VA, NJ and now MA (the ultra blue state) are local and mean nothing.

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.

    I am horribly disappointed! How could this have happened? Dems MUST work harder to PASS Health Care Reform and make changes quickly!

    The folks in MA will not be happy with the way Brown will cast votes against them. Being the new republican in the Senate, he will be beaten down by the neo-cons that are currently in control.

    Finally change we CAN believe in!

    Thank you citizens of Massachusetts for taking a stand, for stopping the Obama / Polosi steamroller. Thank you for saving this great nation of ours!

    Our country owes you a huge debt of gratitude!

    To the 52% of you in MA that voted for Mr. Brown: How incredibly DUMB can you be? You stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid people. Do you have the smidget of intelligence to know what you've done?
