Bill Clinton will campaign for Martha Coakley today in Massachusetts. Martha Coakley was a strong, not intimidated, Hillary Clinton supporter during the primaries and Bill honorably wants to repay that courageous deed.
Bill Clinton is busy at work to help the earthquake devastated Haiti even as he is attacked from beyond the grave as a “racist”. Ted Kennedy, as we wrote a long time ago before the book “Game Change” was even a thought, worked behind the scenes to gift Barack Obama the Democratic nomination yet deceitfully crafted the public pretense he was a “neutral”.
When it was the proper time to stick the premeditated knife in the back of Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy endorsed Barack Obama. At the same time Ted Kennedy (a.k.a. the Chappaquiddick Chauffeur), falsely charged that Hillary Clinton demeaned JFK and that Bill Clinton was for all intents and purposes a “racist”. Ted Kennedy, charged Bill Clinton as a “racist” in order to destroy Bill and Hillary Clinton and to prevent them from ever again being an electoral force. Let’s repeat: Ted Kennedy wanted to assassinate Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton politically.
As previously written, Bill Clinton is the only force (other than Hillary Clinton) that can employ electoral persuasive powers to keep the dirty Ted Kennedy Senate seat away from the Republicans. But Bill Clinton should stay at work to help the earthquake destroyed Haiti. Even Bill Clinton can no longer prevent Scott Brown from victory. Scott Brown will be the worthy successor to the political assassin and Mary Jo Kopechne killer.
We spent our lives in defense of Ted Kennedy from attacks with regard to Chappaquiddick. Now we see that Ted Kennedy’s deceits were many and we will no longer defend the Kennedy corruption. It does provide great pleasure to Hillary supporters that it is Bill Clinton called to the rescue in Massachusetts by the very same John Kerry, who did Ted’s dirty work, and the very same Kennedy family that has so destroyed the good that was their legacy. But Bill Clinton will not be able to rescue Martha Coakley. Martha Coakley is the final Ted Kennedy victim.

Why, contrary to our earlier premise, can Bill Clinton no longer help Martha Coakley? Bill Clinton can no longer help elect Martha Coakley because boobery is afoot. The stench of Barack Obama now infects the Massachusetts election fight. Obama went to Copenhagen to get the Olympics for Corrupt Chicago and came back empty handed, with derision, insults, and laughter his sole acquisitions. Now the Obama stench wafts over Massachusetts. Obama has a long-winded video, which stinks, to praise himself and bury Martha Coakley:
The video is very strange. [snip]
The video also is fairly downbeat. There is nothing about Obama’s tone which resembles his campaign speeches, either for himself or for others. He seems almost lethargic and disinterested.
The video also is all about Obama and his agenda. Coakley is the means to achieve Obama’s vision, and Coakley almost is an aside.
After this hideous stench of a video, Bill Clinton cannot help Coakley. Massachusetts does not like the Axelrod experiment and pre-Obama candidate Governor Deval Patrick. Massachusetts has had enough of Barack Obama and Deval Patrick and the Kennedy assassination squad. The latest public opinion poll from last night has the numbers to support our earlier assertion that she should return to her primary stance away from the Kennedys and against the Obama health scam:
Big-name Kennedy endorsements for Martha Coakley appear to have been little help to the Democrat in the U.S. Senate race – and may have even hurt her with some voters, a new Suffolk University/7News poll shows.
The late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s widow, Vicki, and nephew Joseph Kennedy II gave the attorney general their official blessing last week.
But of the 500 voters surveyed, only 20 percent said the Kennedy family nod made them more likely to vote for Coakley, and 27 percent said the endorsement made them less likely to support her.
Coakley should not have linked herself to the Kennedys and to Obama’s health scam. Wait until the polls come out which empirically demonstrate that Barack Obama is poison even in blue Massachusetts. Before examination of that late-breaking Suffolk poll let’s look at other numbers – absentee ballots:
“They are in an absolute panic mode,” one prominent Bay State Democrat was saying yesterday. “They don’t care if bringing in Barack energizes the Republicans and independents – how much more energized can they get? Obama’s people have to get the minority vote out, and Coakley sure can’t do it herself. It’s risky, but it may be the only way now to save her.”
The national Democrats are pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into the race in the final days. On TV and radio here, Scott Brown’s first name is now “Republican,” as in “Republican Scott Brown.” The SEIU, moveon.org, NARAL – all the usual suspects are on board. The “A” word – abortion – is heard once more in the land. But Coakley’s first 30-second hit piece fell a bit flat when, at the end, the campaign misspelled the name of her state as “Massachusettes.” [snip]
In the state’s suburban town halls, voters are lining up to get absentee ballots, just in case the weather takes a turn for the worse Tuesday. For example, in Yarmouth, on the Cape, during the primary last month, 183 residents voted absentee. By Monday, the number of absentee ballots given out in Yarmouth was 543. It’s the same in all of the more conservative cities and towns.
Despite the bitter January cold, the Brown campaign has been swamped with volunteers. On the weekends, there are Brown “standouts” at every major intersection. Representing a gerrymandered, heavily Democrat district in the state Senate, Brown is used to having his yard signs disappear, but this time there’s a difference.
“My own supporters are stealing them from each other,” he said. “They say, I need it more than you. I live on a busier street.”
Did we mention Barack Obama is poison?
Did we mention Barack Obama is poison?
What went wrong? A year ago, he was king of the world. Now President Obama’s approval rating, according to CBS, has dropped to 46 percent — and his disapproval rating is the highest ever recorded by Gallup at the beginning of an (elected) president’s second year.
A year ago, he was leader of a liberal ascendancy that would last 40 years (James Carville). A year ago, conservatism was dead (Sam Tanenhaus). Now the race to fill Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in bluest of blue Massachusetts is surprisingly close, with a virtually unknown state senator bursting on the scene by turning the election into a mini-referendum on Obama and his agenda, most particularly health care reform.
Knowledgeable sources in Massachusetts tell The Daily Caller that Republican candidate for Senate, Scott Brown, has raised at least $1 million dollars every day this week, most of it online.
The $1 million dollar a day news is a shocker. Another shocker:
Riding a wave of opposition to Democratic health-care reform, GOP upstart Scott Brown is leading in the U.S. Senate race, raising the odds of a historic upset that would reverberate all the way to the White House, a new poll shows.
Although Brown’s 4-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley is within the Suffolk University/7News survey’s margin of error, the underdog’s position at the top of the results stunned even pollster David Paleologos.
The new poll is indeed a shocker:
“It’s a Brown-out,” said Paleologos, director of Suffolk’s Political Research Center. “It’s a massive change in the political landscape.”
The poll shows Brown, a state senator from Wrentham, besting Coakley, the state’s attorney general, by 50 percent to 46 percent, the first major survey to show Brown in the lead. Unenrolled long-shot Joseph L. Kennedy, an information technology executive with no relation to the famous family, gets 3 percent of the vote. Only 1 percent of voters were undecided.
Paleologos said bellweather models show high numbers of independent voters turning out on election day, which benefits Brown, who has 65 percent of that bloc compared to Coakley’s 30 percent. Kennedy earns just 3 percent of the independent vote, and 1 percent are undecided.
Did we mention that Barack Obama and Ted Kennedy are poison? Scott Brown is increasingly seen as the antidote:
And with 99 percent having made up their minds, voters may be hard to persuade. [snip]
Brown wins among men and is remarkably competitive among women – trailing Coakley’s 50 percent with 45 percent.
While Brown has 91 percent of registered Republicans locked up, an astonishing 17 percent of Democrats report they’re jumping ship for Brown as well – likely a product of Coakley’s laser-focus on hard-core Dems, potentially at the exclusion of other Democrats whom she needed to win over, Paleologos said. [snip]
Brown’s popularity is solid. He enjoys a 57 percent favorability rating compared to just 19 percent unfavorable. Coakley’s favorability is 49 percent; her unfavorability, 41 percent.
Those numbers are deadly. The Coakley campaign slept while Brown worked unbothered by Coakley for two weeks to build up his favorability. Now voters feel like they know him enough to like him and not believe nasty things said about him. In this last week Coakley allies have unleased a wave of hate advertisements designed to muddy Brown, but these attack ads backfire because people like him and the attack ads appear as desperate. The time to attack Brown was immediately after the primaries, not now. This last week should have been dedicated to positive advertisements designed to bolster Martha Coakly, not trash Scott Brown.
The new, ugly, poll numbers dispirit Coakley supporters at the worst possible moment.
Even the Nutroots agree with us as they recognize the disaster looming for the Obama Dimocratic Party:
In both the VA and NJ race, undecideds broke heavily for the Republicans. If anything, that sour landscape has gotten worse since November for Democrats.[snip]
But Brown may win it by staying positive. He’s making the right gamble here given his position. [snip]
Scott Brown is ahead. The negative ads are back-firing. Coakley is going to lose…. Actually, its a toss-up.
So says the latest Suffolk poll, which shows Brown ahead now 50-46 percent. Hmm, Coakley at 46 now, that’s not good. I’ll recant my prediction that Coakley is going to win upthread. Brown’s taking the highroad with momentum and the lead (in one poll), while Democrats go with a negative onslaught– it is probably not the best scenario in the closing days for Coakley to win.
Even the Boston Nutroots boys are aware of the problems:
Really. WTF are you guys doing over there? [snip]
Get out there. Where are you? You were given the ball by many people and you are not even trying. This is not about you. Do you have any idea how pissed people are at you. Get your goddamn ass out there and start talking to people about the difference between you and Scott Brown. Non stop. Get your ass into as many radio stations, live instudio and talk. Get on Howie’s show in studio all of them you a goddman trial attorney and you know these guys are wrong on the facts and the law. Spend an hour with Howie and his callers. You need a counter attack. Then go the other talk shows. In between call in others (live in studio is 100 times better. and get in front of TV cameras and go after Scott. These stations owe you some time. Go on Finneran and McPhee and in Worcester and Springfield etc. and attack with facts. And take on Howie and all the others etc. Brown is a dolt and the people defending him are too. If you control, like an hour inside the studio you will be going to a kife fight with a gun. No problem.
And dan Rea too. He’s turned into a big diappointment.
It will be good radio, get you attention as being aggressive and turn this thing around.
And talk about Jobs Jobs Jobs Job. And mammograms. Leave the abortion thing at home now. Those that need to know now know.
How’s your phone bank going? I hope you are not just counting on the unions.
But get off your ass. Monday’s a holiday for crisssake.
The issue on the minds of Massachusetts voters is Obama’s health care scam and Coakley is concentrating on issues which are a problem even for South Boston Catholics. Scott Brown campaigns on the issues Massachusetts cares about right now as most important – Jobs and Obama’s health scam.
Martha Coakley was a shoe-in said Big Media last week.
The noise on the right about Republican Scott Brown pulling off a shocking upset in the January 19 special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat is just that. [snip]
And now, some conservatives are talking about winning the race, humiliating Democrats in a deeply blue state, and – suddenly armed with a 41st vote in the Senate – driving a last-minute stake through the heart of health care reform.
Take it from this Bay State native: It ain’t happening.
The race would be close, I figured — 53-47 for Coakley, or something like that — but the state’s blue tint would be just enough to save the Democrats.
I’d now like to qualify that prediction. Coakley’s internal poll last night, I’ve been told, showed her barely ahead, 46 to 44 percent. The momentum clearly favors Brown, and one very smart Massachusetts Democrat I know told me this morning that “this may be too far gone to recover.”
So I was wrong: Brown may actually win.
The excuses are now the order of the day, decorated with “creative class” charts.
The Washington establishment is now aware that Brown has momentum and in the lead in Massachusetts.
The Right Wing is busy mocking, not so much Bill Clinton, but the situation in Massachusetts. In a cartoon there is a balloon of Bill Clinton saying: “I would describe this as possibly a loss of Biblical proportions, a catastrophic disaster. We are in a race against time, and need to raise as much money as possible. There is growing desperation and I fear the aftershocks. So, I will be taking a team of rescue specialists to help with the rescue efforts of Martha Coakley in Massachusetts today!” It’s an unpleasant cartoon, but essentially accurate.
The great, like FDR twice elected, Bill Clinton can save lives in Haiti but he cannot save Martha Coakley.
Martha Coakley is a good person with a good record. The sexism and misogyny used against her (not by Scott Brown or his campaign) is despicable. Martha Coakley did not take our advice but we understand the political calculations she made. Martha Coakley made many mistakes in this campaign as opposed to her smart primary campaign when she ran against Obama’s health scam and the Kennedy clan assassins.
Martha Coakley made mistakes but she will not be the next senator from Massachusetts because voters, even in that bluest of blue states, are sick of Deval Patrick, Barack Obama, the Obama Dimocratic Party, and Ted Kennedy. Martha Coakley’s defeat will defeat the health scam Ted Kennedy inflicted on the United States when he lied and cheated and smeared to elect Barack Obama.
Martha Coakley is Ted Kennedy’s final victim.
