    Cool! His arrogance makes him think he can help but in reality he can only hurt her chances. His days of helping candidates is about over.

    "Ann January 15th, 2010 1:59 pm ET
    Maybe we should elect 100 at large senators."

    No maybes about it! That is the only way to take our country back from the tyranny that we are facing.

    Coakley is double digit points ahead in the polls and not to worry - right. That was until Obama started to push the voters for her. Now he is going to MA to help some more.

    People, talk to everyone who will listen to get out and vote. The turnout will determine the winner. Maybe Obama is coming to give MA a deal on healthcare like all the other special interest groups he bribed. I have no more to give (be taken). Please stop this madness and vote for Scott Brown on Tuesday.

    Yes! Please send in the president who has a 36% approval rating on his handling of health care and unemployment.

    The fact that the President has to fly to Mass. to campaign for a Democrat in the bluest and most solidly liberals of all states is very telling of the nervousness of the liberal party! With all the closed door and back room deals, and broken promises, they should be very nervous! Americans are not "fired up and ready to go", its more like "fed up and ready to throw" (out the liberals)!

  8. Brilliant, If She Wins . . .

    Obama looks like a winner.

    The Rush LImbaugh ReBirther Tea Partiers have woken the Dems.
    Prepare to lose, Brownies.

    I can hear the excuses if Brown wins......well she ran a bad campaign and not the administration's fault......It is the bad policies against the American people's will that will cause for a major 2010 Democratic loss.

    It ain't over til all the votes are counted. Come on Democrats, let's take this election to the bank and keep change going! We need Martha now! Be sure to vote on election day, never take anything for granted. Every Democrat vote is needed. Do you want the same thing we had for 8 years, 2000-2008? No, you don't because it was total failure for America. Brown = Bush

    Obama is not a president. He is a constant campaigner. Like Rome, just fiddles while our country is on fire.

    I can not wait to see what spin his, marketing team, will put on Scott Brown winning in MA.

    If the republican is elected its the end for healthcare reform, financial reform or any other tyrpe of reform as the republicans have to protect their fat cat Wall Street and Mega Corp buddies.

    Cut him a break. Yesterday was a great success and he deserves to get in some campaigning to celebrate. I'm talking about getting the unions on board with the Health Care Bureaucracy Act. It only cost the rest of us $60 billion! ( okay, I really shouldn't be throwing a word like 'success' around so carelessly!)

    You have to be stupid to give the seat to a peanut-eating Elephant, whom for 8 years, gave W a blank check.

    we nee to move forward to the future and stop looking at the past. Putting elephants in Congress, will ensure we are dying dinosaurs while other countries are getting ahead of us....

  17. Larry from Mass.

    OBAMA IS A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is so arrogant that he doesn't realize that HE is the reason Coakly is losing. How much taxpayer dollars is he spending (wasting) to come and campaign for someone else? Look how much he helped in Virginia and New Jersey. By coming here it only strengthens our resolve to vote for Brown. by the way I live in Massachusetts and am a democrat and I am voting for Brown!!!!

    Remember that with the elephants, you will get NOTHING, while Scrooges will get everything.

    We have seen eight years of letting big corporations eat us alive

    Why in the world would you want to repeat the same dumb mistake?

    Let's stop all those closed door deals and start over on healthcare reform.

    Dingle Barry to the rescue!!!! Better saddle up the ACORN buses, it looks like it could be a Dimbocrat blow-out. PS: I just sent $50 bucks for Brown's campaign and I live in NC.
    Bring on 2010!!!!!

    A nutty tea bagger elected on Ted Kennedy's seat ? Shame, shame, shame. I hope I will not see that day.

  24. Bedtime for Obonzo

    Great! That will only put more emphasis on Brown's winning issue - stopping the health care monstrosity.
