Brown Versus Coakley – No Taxation Without Representation

[*** SCOTT BROWN WINS! READ OUR NEW ARTICLE HERE] Note: Today we will post updates at the bottom of this article. We expect many updates throughout the day (some from our Massachusetts friends). Our comments section will be update heavy as well.]

* * * * *

A victorious Scott Brown should ask his supporters tonight, at his victory speech, to march to the nation’s capital, along with him, this very week. Together, Scott Brown and the people, can demand Scott Brown take elective office despite plots and schemes to circumvent democratic process.

Scott Brown’s battle cry from the cradle of liberty: “No Taxation Without Representation”

A call for citizens to take one final step, one final march, to enforce the will of the people would be an historic step directly in line with the liberation night called “The Boston Tea Party”. In one fell swoop Scott Brown would solidify his leadership role and turn the inchoate Tea Party movement into a mature, distinctive, force.

* * * * *

A march on Washington to enforce civil rights from nullification by corrupt forces will be appropriate if Scott Brown wins. All the public opinion polls are meaningless compared to election day poll results at the ballot box.

The public opinion poll are full of grace notes for Scott Brown these days. But Hillary supporters know that between the public and the polls there is corruption and corruption is a powerful wind which blows from Chicago.



Blowhard Obama thugs already are in election theft mode. “MSNBC’s [Chris] Matthews Misses Days Of Vote Buying” and is not ashamed to say so on a television show seen by tens of people. Fellow MSNBC thug Ed Schultz openly calls for election fraud by voters:



In 1773 King George III found out the citizens of Massachusetts are capable of defense of their liberties and the fundamental rights of man (and woman). The Boston Tea Party is long gone but not forgotten. A new Tea Party is steaming in 2010. What it will produce remains to be seen. We do know that it is brewing. Tonight’s The Night.

Update I: Five things to watch:

To get a sense of whether Brown is winning the working-class vote, look no further than early returns from the heavily Democratic Irish Catholic South Shore, where Obama suffered significant drop-offs from John Kerry’s vote in 2004. Brown needs to carry the towns of Braintree and Weymouth, two Democratic strongholds that Obama barely held in 2008.

If Brown wins 55 percent in neighboring Quincy, which Obama carried by 18 points (58 percent to 40 percent), it would be devastating to the Coakley campaign. [snip]

Coakley also needs proportionally higher turnout in the Democratic-leaning cities of Springfield and Worcester, where party get-out-the-vote efforts have also been concentrated. In 2008, Obama won 77 percent of the vote in Springfield and 68 percent of the vote in Worcester.[snip]

Rack up big margins of victory in the outer Boston suburban towns, particularly those along the I-495 ring. [snip]

Brown needs to win at least 55 percent of the vote in this area, particularly in high-growth places like Marlborough, Taunton and Haverhill — three towns that Romney carried by double digits in 2002 but Obama won in 2008. He’ll also need to rack up double-digit margins of victory in his home base around Wrentham and Foxborough. [snip]

If women make up a clear majority, according to exit polls, Coakley may have an edge. [snip]

Endorsements don’t always have an impact in high-stakes races, but Democrats say Vicki Kennedy’s late endorsement of Coakley could prove pivotal in her last-minute push to win the Cape and the southeastern part of the state — where the Kennedy family name still rings strong. [snip]

In a sign that voters in the state might not be looking for a candidate to carry on the Kennedy legacy, Kennedy last week called her late husband’s seat “the people’s seat,” not the “Kennedy seat,” in a closing Coakley ad.

Update III: From AllahPundit more Obama boobery:

A follow-up to last week’s video clip of The One promising to make the midterms a referendum on ObamaCare, which is working like gangbusters right now for Marcia or Marla or whatever her name is. Not sure if there’s actual strategy at work here or if it’s just their “do the opposite of what Clinton did” instincts at work. Clinton didn’t pass health care and got wiped out in the midterms, ergo we must pass health care regardless of how many people hate it. Clinton tacked towards the center after he was repudiated by voters, ergo…

Update XII: Puma P.A.C. sticks with the honorable “elect women” strategy. Other voting groups, ethnic, racial, gender, follow this strategy and it certainly is an honorable and possibly very smart strategy. Woman power rules at Puma P.A.C.

Update XIII Strata-Sphere has the rundown on Democrats voting for Brown. DailyKooks and assorted Nutroots will soon call Massachusetts Democrats “low information voters”. That is what they do to anyone who disagrees with the “creative class” (we call them the “clueless class”).

Update XIV: The Pink is spreading“We lost independents in Virginia, we lost independents in New Jersey and we’re losing independents in Massachusetts,” said one Democratic campaign strategist. “The only thing those three states have in common is Obama.” Obama is poison.

  1. If anyone is interested in the local take, here’s the Boston news talk radio station. This is the Rush Limbaugh station, but they are pre-empting him today for local call-in all afternoon. There’s a link to listen live streaming audio from this page. Scott Brown has been calling into this station two or three times a day for a month. Don’t miss Howie Carr at 3:00 pm Eastern. He’s the one who calls John Kerry the “do-nothing giggolo”. He’s a piece of work who will be on fire today.

  3. From Politico:

    “A Democratic operative familiar with Martha Coakley and the DSCC’s massive get-out-the-vote operation says that outreach workers in and around Boston have been stunned by the number of Democrats and Obama supporters who are waving them off, saying they’ll vote for Scott Brown.”

  4. HillaryForTexas, we posted that in our latest update. As we say in the update, the Nutroots will soon call Massachusetts Democrats “low information voters”. 🙂

    10 reasons why George W. Bush was a smarter world leader than Barack Obama

    When it took office a year ago, the Obama administration boasted of a new strategy of “smart power”, designed to restore America’s “standing” in the world. In essence this new approach to foreign policy was designed to distance the new US government in every way possible from the Bush administration, supposedly hated in every corner of the earth, from Berlin to Buenos Aires.

    Hence, the hallmarks of Obama’s foreign policy have been the naive engagement of an array of odious dictatorial regimes, grovelling apologies before foreign audiences, lamb-like timidity in the face of intimidation, the ending of the War on Terror, and the trashing of traditional alliances. But has this liberal foreign affairs revolution succeeded in advancing American interests and security across the globe? Hardly. Under Obama’s leadership the United States now appears significantly weaker and far more vulnerable, faced with an array of deadly threats that grow more menacing by the day.

    When President Bush was in power he may not have been hugely popular abroad, but the United States was widely feared on the world stage, her enemies were hunted to the ends of the earth, and her real allies were treated with respect. As Barack Obama is discovering to his cost, the world stage is not an extension of the set of American Idol, and global leadership is not about winning popularity contests. The doctrine of “smart power” looks increasingly like an empty shell, a naive approach that has reaped no dividends and threatens to usher in an era of American decline, unless it is reversed.

    I’ve outlined below ten areas where George W. Bush’s international leadership was considerably smarter than that of his successor. As I noted in an article at the end of the Bush presidency, ten or twenty years from now, historians will view Bush’s actions on the world stage in a more favourable light. President Bush, like Ronald Reagan, understood that American global leadership rests heavily upon the projection of hard power as well as diplomacy, and the United States can only lead effectively if it is willing to aggressively confront its enemies and defeat them.

    1. Bush never apologised for his country

    Barack Obama has apologised for America’s past actions in practically every speech he’s given on foreign soil, and has humiliatingly referred to America’s “arrogance”. In contrast, George W. Bush’s speeches before international audiences were filled with pride for America’s history and achievements, with an uncompromising belief in the greatness of his country. The Obama approach has simply projected weakness rather than strength, and his diatribes against the previous administration’s counter-terror strategy has provided ample ammunition for those who believe the United States lacks the stomach for the fight ahead.

    2. Bush identified and confronted evil

    There was something very refreshing in George W. Bush’s Reaganesque interpretation of the world in terms of good and evil. In contrast, Barack Obama has viewed the globe largely in shades of grey, with a reluctance to describe who exactly America’s enemies are, from North Korea and Iran to Islamist terrorists. I applauded Bush when he delivered his infamous Axis of Evil address because he correctly identified the nature and scale of the threat the West is facing from an array of rogue regimes, who in some cases also act as large-scale sponsors of international terrorism. President Obama’s disastrous decision to engage Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs of Iran has simply bought the regime in Tehran valuable time to advance its nuclear and ballistic weapons programme, as well as its ambitions to dominate the Middle East.

    3. Bush made the advance of freedom a key component of his agenda

    The spread of freedom and liberty was always a centerpiece of the Bush agenda. His critics derided this approach as unrealistic, or as a grandiose dream. But few would argue today that the people of Iraq were better off living under a monstrous tyrant like Saddam Hussein. In marked contrast, Barack Obama rarely mentions the word freedom, and the issue of human rights is far down his list of priorities. He has remained largely silent in the face of extreme brutality by the Iranian regime, has extended the hand of friendship to genocidal killers in Sudan and has turned a blind eye to repression in places like Burma. There is a name for this kind of strategy – appeasement – and it only serves to weaken America’s standing in the world and strengthen the brutal fist of its enemies.

    4. Bush defended national sovereignty

    One of the biggest shifts in US foreign policy under the Obama administration has been its willingness to undermine national sovereignty, and its desire to give more power to supranational institutions such as the United Nations. Washington has already rejoined the embarrassing UN Human Rights Council (HRC), and is likely to sign up to the International Criminal Court and a host of UN treaties that threaten US interests. Barack Obama gave one of the most embarrassing and cringe-worthy speeches in American history at the UN General Assembly last September. President Bush, never a big fan of Turtle Bay, wisely kept his country out of the ICC and the HRC, and firmly resisted calls for him to sign the Kyoto Protocol as well.

    5. Bush believed in the Special Relationship

    I don’t recall George W Bush ever throwing a bust of Churchill out of the Oval Office or giving the British Prime Minister an insulting pack of DVDs. President Bush recognized Great Britain as America’s closest friend and ally, and placed the Special Relationship at the very heart of US foreign policy. Under Obama, the Anglo-American alliance has reached its lowest point since the Suez Crisis of 1956, a damning indictment of his world leadership. Bush possessed a genuine affection for the British people, their great heritage and their role in the world. Barack Obama cannot even bring himself to mention Britain in a major policy address or acknowledge the sacrifice of British forces in Afghanistan.

    6. Bush cultivated key allies

    Granted, Bush was hardly the most popular leader the US has ever had in Europe. But he did invest a great deal of time and effort in cultivating a strong personal relationship with several key European leaders, including Tony Blair, Jose Maria Aznar and Silvio Berlusconi. President Obama has largely ignored building alliances with European heads of state, and seems indifferent towards the transatlantic alliance. His administration has placed far greater emphasis upon backing the rise of a European superstate, than it has on strengthening ties wit close allies. The Obama administration has also succeeded in damaging the partnership between Israel and the United States, something no president has achieved since Jimmy Carter.

    7. Bush understood the importance of missile defence

    The Obama White House’s appalling surrender to Moscow’s demands to scrap Third Site missile defence was a shameful act in the face of Russian intimidation. It was an agreement the Bush Administration had painstakingly negotiated with key allies Poland and the Czech Republic, and the ensuing US withdrawal was a massive propaganda victory for Vladimir Putin and a huge betrayal of America’s friends in central and eastern Europe. It also demonstrated hesitation over adequately funding and building an effective global missile defence system, vital to the defence of the West against a mounting Iranian threat.

    8. Bush believed in fighting a global war

    One of the gravest mistakes of Obama’s first year in office has been his reluctance to describe the conflict against al-Qaeda and its backers as a global war. He dropped the idea of a War on Terror within days of entering office, which was subsequently renamed as an “Overseas Contingency Operation”. President Bush was right to rally his country behind a large-scale long war, one which may last for several decades, against an enemy that seeks the destruction of the West.

    9. Bush did not compromise US security

    The Obama administration’s zealous drive to dismantle the Bush administration’s infrastructure for dealing with al-Qaeda, including the promised closure of the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, is having zero effect on lessening the threat the United States faces from Islamist terrorists. In fact, the followers of Bin Laden are now further emboldened by the President’s weakness, as demonstrated by the recent failed Detroit bombing attempt. President Bush was right to use all the tools at his disposal to keep America safe in the face of a vicious enemy. Barack Obama’s PR offensive to win over the hearts and minds of America’s enemies is already a spectacular failure.

    10. Bush did not send mixed messages in the face of the enemy

    A constant theme of Barack Obama’s speeches has been to describe the war in Iraq as a “war of choice”, underscoring his own intense opposition to the war, hardly a message of support for the more than 100,000 U.S. soldiers still stationed in the country. He also spent months dithering over whether to send additional US forces to the war in Afghanistan, and when he finally did make an announcement of an extra 30,000 troops it was tempered by the simultaneous declaration of an exit strategy, and a warning that America could not wage war against the Taliban indefinitely. This was hardly a display of Churchillian grit by the Commander-in-Chief. In contrast, President Bush never failed to give his soldiers the full, unequivocal backing they deserved, and always spoke in terms of achieving victory, instead of artificial timetables that hand the initiative to the enemy.

  7. Basil9, we thought most would miss our “tens” fun. Good to know the humor is understood and appreciated (the DailyKooks don’t understand subtle digs).

    We’ll try to update with comments as much as possible, especially from those in Massachusetts.

  8. admin,

    I may read quickly and type poorly but I ALWAYS go back over your posts and pull out at least a couple of the gems.

    Love your writing!

  9. I know we are all focussed on the election today, but I thought this was a nice tribute to Bill Clinton.

    ——————-

    January 18, 2010 at 09:49 PM

    Why Bill Clinton is the greatest ex-president

    Bill Clinton is the best ex-president of the United States. Whatever you thought of him as president, you have to accept he has become one of the greatest humanitarians on earth.

    Some may say Jimmy Carter, who won the Nobel Prize, is the greatest ex-prez, but I think Clinton wins it. He is simply a more inspirational figure.

    Yesterday, as UN special envoy, Clinton met with the injured in Haiti and promised massive support. The sight of him helping the earthquake victims was at once compelling and uplifting. Here was American soft power at its best, along with the troops President Obama has sent and the joint work that former presidents George Bush and Clinton will undertake together for Haiti.

    Kudos to to Bush the younger, who has taken his father’s role alongside Clinton as a world ambassador for peace.

    If you follow Clinton’s work on AIDS in Africa, his efforts to curb childhood obesity here in America and his continued role as a troubleshooter in international conflicts, you cannot but be impressed.

    His Clinton Foundation has become one of the world’s great philanthropic organizations, with a turnover of $300 million last year.

    We Irish know all about his peacemaking skills. Without him, there would have been no peace in Northern Ireland. It is as simple as that.

    He has brought that skill to the world now, unencumbered by the strains of high office. He is proving a remarkable ambassador for our country, one who perhaps was more loved abroad during his time in office than he ever was at home.

    He has used that fame, not to enrich himself — which he could have done so easily — but to help the less fortunate, the forgotten, the frail.

    His visit to Haiti yesterday was very much in keeping with that spirit. He does us all proud.

  10. Fewer see Obama advancing racial ties

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Fewer Americans believe the presidency of Barack Obama, the first African American elected to the White House, has helped advance race relations compared with a year ago, a Washington Post-ABC News poll suggests.

    The poll, published on the U.S. holiday commemorating civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., found 41 percent now say Obama’s presidency has helped race relations, compared with 58 percent on the eve of Obama’s inauguration a year ago who said his presidency would help race relations.

    The decline was the sharpest among African Americans, with 51 percent now saying Obama has helped advance race relations, compared with 75 percent who, last January, said they expected Obama’s presidency to help.

    The poll was conducted by telephone from January 12 to 15 among a random sample of 1,083 adults, and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. For the 153 African Americans polled, the margin of error was 8 percentage points.

  11. Isn’t it interesting that the “rhetorical genius” of the 21st century, namely, Obama could not produce a single, spontaneous, and memorable line (over a campaign lasting almost two years) like “It is not Kennedy’s seat, it is not the Democrats’ seat, it’s the people’s seat!”?

    “Fired up, ready to go” or “Yes we can” don’t count!!

  12. JanH, Thanks for posting those Hillary video’s. I wonder if Queen Pelosi has ever riden on a coast guard plane. SHe did not take her huge SOS plane, she rode a supply plane to get there. I wonder how many news crews have clogged up the airport, all you hear from Beck is that its the politicians.

    Each and everytime a Clinton went in they rode a transport plane or one that was bringing much needed equipment.

  13. Just in on Fox, Obama says that HC will not fail if Martha loses. I guess he was able to buy that vote from the republican that is retiring.

  14. Confloyd, we love all the tough talk from Obama. The tougher he talks, the weaker he acts. It’s reverse Teddy Roosevelt.

    This will be Obama’s Waterloo. Wobbei got us hooked on this song:

  15. ” TO THINK WE COULD HAVE HAD HILLARY ”

    AND WE WILL Mark my word.I will not leave this world before I see her in the Oval Office and BO
    back in Capone Country

  16. Health care will go through, but many dems will be very leery IF( and I still think Coakley pulls it out) Brown wins….overall, a loud message to Congress that many are unhappy with Obama’s policies and his arrogance.

  17. Intrade has Brown at 85%!!!!!!

    I feel like not showing up to the county legislature meeting at 6 and the town board meeting at 7:30.

    I do not want to miss a single second of the impending Brownout!

  18. Heartbreaking and inspiring video PM317. A husband’s love and the wonderful L.A. Fire Department. (no embed codes so we cannot post this video).

  19. JBStonesFan, if you are right and the health scam gets pushed through, the Republicans will celebrate. After Wednesday they will have all the money they need to run a repeal campaign.

  20. I am joining a Mitt Romney fund raising group in Boca with a very, very wealthy Jewish acquaintance of mine who worked for Mitt last election. He and McCain allegedly despise one another or he would have been the VP choice… Absent Hillary running, I like Romney as he governed Mass. fairly moderately…He also has the best hair in politics imo…

  21. It’s early yet, but word coming in of heavy turnout so far in Brown areas, lower turnout in Dem strongholds:

    City figures show 23,667 people voted as of 9 a.m. Voting was heaviest in West Roxbury’s Ward 20, where 2,626 people voted. Morning turnout was the lightest in Ward 15, which covers parts of Dorchester. The city said so far 313 voters cast ballots there.

    Source:
    http://www.bostonherald.com/news/politics/view.bg?articleid=1226665&srvc=home&position=active

    Here is some history. 2008 General.
    Dorchester. Turnout: 76%. Obama: 84%
    W. Roxbury. Turnout: 82%. Obama: 59%*

    *W. Roxbury had the lowest Obama percentage in the city.

  22. I just can’t do Mitt Romney, he was one of the worst Hillary basher’s. He ridiculed as bad as Rudy did. He might have done a good job in Massachusettes, but to me he seems so fake. He might not be though.

  23. Obama is poison. That’s why Coakley is in trouble.

    http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2010/01/19/for_coakley_ominous_sign/

    Edgar Martinez is 22 years old, and 14 months ago he voted in his first and so far only election, and he cast his ballot for Obama. “I remember then, when Obama was running, that was all we talked about, my friends, my family. We were excited,’’ he said. “I haven’t heard anybody I know talking about this election.

    “All my friends voted for Obama. A lot of them were like me. It was the first time we voted. Even older people in my family, it was the first time they voted. Everybody thought things would get better. But they haven’t. I know a lot of people who have lost their houses this year. It’s sad. All my friends are saying Obama promised a lot but he’s doing nothing. I don’t know if that’s true. But that’s what my friends are saying.’’

    Edgar Martinez was born in Guatemala and came here as a boy. He used to work as a security guard.

    “I got laid off,’’ he said.

  24. http://realclearpolitics.blogs.time.com/2010/01/18/are-democrats-breaking-for-brown/

    As one looks at the polls that have been released of late, there’s a trend worth noting. Not only has Brown locked up his Republican base and taken a commanding lead among independent voters. But a growing number of Democrats seem to be shifting toward the Brown column. In this new survey, Brown wins Republicans 86-10 and independents 69-28. Among Democrats, Coakley’s lead is just 71-24, meaning nearly one-in-four of those voters plans to cast a vote for the Republican. [snip]

    With word that the Obama operation is moving in to supplement Coakley’s GOTV operation, there’s a challenge for them beyond just the weather: find only those Democrats who plan to stick within their party tomorrow.

  25. Those ten points on Bush II vs BO from the telegraph are RIGHT…much as I disliked Bush II. in terms of patriotism and national security (after 9/11), Bush for the most part right about it!!!

  26. They all bashed her except McCain. Apparently, Palin also has a new found respect for Hillary after going through the abuse of a campaign . But at least with a republican you know where they stand unlike the back stabbing scum democrats we saw betray Hillary and Bill.

  27. This is an exerpt from a bigger article posted at:

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703837004575013111682315540.html?mod=WSJ_Opinion_MIDDLETopOpinion

    “When asked whether “ACORN will try to steal the election for Martha Coakley,” a surprising 25% of those surveyed in Massachusetts said “yes.” A total of 38% said “no,” and another 37% weren’t sure. Lest you think concern about ACORN was limited to Republicans, one out of six Democrats thought ACORN would attempt electoral hanky-panky. One out of four African-Americans expressed the same concern, along with the same number of voters who called themselves moderates.”

  28. Please if Brown wins tonight, can someone please photo capture the faces of Brazille, Borger and the idiots on CNN for posterity.

  29. Obama is Poison, even Coakley knows it now:

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0110/Coakley_adviser_memo_DC_Dems_faled_Coakley.html

    The Coakley adviser’s memo: [snip]

    Brown Capitalized on Concerns About National Democrats

    — From the beginning, Brown labeled President Obama’s health care and cap and trade plans as tax increases. Polling throughout the race showed this to be the most effective attack on Coakley.

    Coakley’s lead dropped significantly after the Senate passed health care reform shortly before Christmas and after the Christmas Eve “bombing” incident. Polling showed significant concerns with the actions of Senator Nelson to hold out for a better deal. Senator Nelson’s actions specifically hurt Coakley who was forced to backtrack on her opposition to the abortion restriction amendment.

    — Democrats concerns with Obama’s Afghanistan plan forced Coakley to oppose the Afghan war in the primary, which hurt her in the general.

  30. JanH, you heard right.

    MoonOnPluto, we are not that cruel to post pictures of those two. The Barack Obama pictures we have posted are bad enough. 🙂

  31. Admin, sounds like Coakleys team has written the memo on the reason for the loss and leaking it out early so as to get the headstart on the WH.

  32. …Admin…Someone needs to tell Coakley that you need to have a set of principals. You don’t change your vote to go with the the Party line, you vote as a Representative of the American people and have a moral compass. This is exactly what went wrong with her campaign. She doesn’t know who she is and just tows the Party line.

    It’s about Character, not Party

    CAN YOU HEAR US NOW!!!!!!!

  33. One thing to keep in mind it this: since Bill Clinton left office and the party moved to the left, there has been a significant attrition in Massachusetts from the democratic party to independents. Independents are now the pivotal voting block and there are more of them than democrats or republicans. Why did they leave the party? Because they did not like the machine. Why did’t they just become Republicans–go all the way? Because they put country over party. And that is what the Scott Brown candidacy speaks to. When Hannity asked him whether he was a Reagan republican and he said that he is a Scott Brown republican independent voters who were paying attention knew what that meant. It meant country over party. That answer its independents where they live. Zogby projected Coakley would win. But Zogby hates republicans and zogby has a relative high up in the Obama campaign and the release of that information on the day of the election is a clear attempt at voter nullification by a dishonest pollster. Also, the guy who helped Hillary win the primary in Massachusetts is helping Coakley. If this were a democratic primary, where democrats only were voting that would be outcome determinative, but all he can do in this election is turn out democrats not independents or republicans. Independent and Republican turn out is reported to be very high. Bad news for Coakley. If you add all this up to me what it says is this:

    1. first, Howie Carr is right: this election will tell us whether there are more productive working people or parasites in Massachusetts. The productive people who will pay the freight for Obamamation will vote for Brown.

    2. second, we will see how effective the Kennedy Machine is in cheating. Also, if Brown wins a narrow victory then watch for Kennedy Machine operatives to contest the election. It is part of the Soros playbook, they used it in Georgia and the Ukraine. Horowitz believes that they will use it in this country as well. But it is like the pot calling the kettle black.

  34. Jan H…thanks for all those great videos…and that article from the irish…

    Bill and Hillary are the hardest working Americans we have…two soul mates out to save the world against any and all odds…just cannot say it enough, I Love these two people and I know I say that amongst kindred spirits…

  35. IF Coakley wins, and she may just do that…..will there be riots in the streets?

    Somehow I think the fix is in…that is why the “fixers” will get in with a small margin….maybe needing recounting to delay the whole prcoess…

  36. Huge turnout is only from 2 things in a special election

    1 : people are pissed
    2 : Motivation for their party.

    I dont see enthusiasm from Dems, its just not there, Independents and GOP are rabid, thats where this is going.

  37. So have we a new tally yet on how many Obama has tossed under the bus now Coakley has been tossed under it.

    He needs a bigger bus.

  38. The Democrats are turning on themselves already its a circular firing squad.

    This can only mean they know its lost and lost by some way it would seem.

  39. Anecdote….dont know the truth of it but if it is, bye bye Martha.

    FWIW, this just posted from Red Mass Group:

    Only 3% turnout in Springfield, MA as of 12:30pm

    “In what MassLive.com is calling as “higher turnout than expected” only 2,700 of close to 90,000 registered voters in Springfield casted a ballot as of 12:30PM.

    Judging from turnout so far, Oyola said turnout could reach as high as 25-30 percent. “As high as 25%”, you’ve gotta be kidding me! Talk about relative terms! If one of the Democratic strong holds is only throwing 2,700 votes Coakley’s way as of 12:30PM. A town 1/10th it’s size, Hanover, is already covering the difference. Hearing that must be crushing for Coakley. If that’s their math, I’ll gladly trade Hanover to take Springfield off the table. WOW!”

  41. Lol best line of the day….

    Martha’s new gig tomorrow.

    Ladies and gentlemen, can we have a warm New York Yankees welcome for Marcia Coakley and the Massachusettes!

  42. I will keep repeating these words day in and day out until the Hocus Potus is evicted or resigns.

    ” TO THINK WE COULD HAVE HAD HILLARY “

  43. http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2010/01/19/2178310.aspx

    As the political world waits on the returns from the special Senate election in Massachusetts, one of the big issues in the race — the health care debate — has increasingly become a liability for the Obama White House and the Democratic Party, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    In the survey, only 33 percent say President Obama’s health-reform effort is a good idea, versus 46 percent who consider it a bad idea.

  44. I would not like it if they go after Coakley. People should go after Obama and his duds.

    On another note, I watched 24 for the first time last night and thought the actor who plays president in that show looked a lot like Hillary. Is that intentional? When did they bring her in as the president?

  45. I would not like it if they go after Coakley. People should go after Obama and his duds.
    ———————-
    Precisely. Obama is the puss pocket of evil here.

  46. PM317

    I had that same thought(madam president looked like hillary) the other night during the premier of 24!!

    also wondered if that was intentional.

    great minds!! 😀

  47. Fox News just played tape of a married couple who said they voted for Scott Brown. They said they were going to vote for Coakley “But when the Kennedy’s came in we said no… they’re not going to run our lives.”

  48. I must say I did not expect it to unravel so quickly. I guess I gave Obama some benefit of the doubt but not much and he didn’t rise up to that even.

  49. LOL! Hotair has a screen shot up: Coakley’s campaign issued a press release claiming they have “reports” that people were handed ballots pre-filled out for Brown.

    Only problem is….the press release they handed out was dated….yesterday.

  50. Hi all!! Happy election night!(I hope)
    I only slept for 2 hours last night, so I have to lie down before I pass out.
    But I will dream sweet dreams of a Brown victory!

    THE TIDE IS TURNING PEOPLE, THE TIDE IS TURNING!!!! 🙂

  51. In my recent trip to India, I met a couple I had gone to school with. They (PhDs, liberal types) had a positive opinion of Obama (why wouldn’t they? if all they heard was from the Big Media). My friend (the wife) was quite argumentative and played the devil’s advocate and of course, all my french started to come out as I told her about the real Obama and what had happened in the Primary. She was especially surprised about Caucus fraud and wondered that things like that would happen in America. She saw how disappointed I was that we failed to elect the woman. I told her about Coakley and asked her to remember that name. What a wrong circumstance for Coakley! There are not many qualified women in politics and they should perhaps be smart and pick and choose their timing — that is the big lesson here.

  52. According to Beck today, he said the fight in MA. today isn’t a fight between the dims and repubs, its between the democrats and the progressives. It’s a fight for the power in the party.

    Is that what you guys think too??

  53. mop: NJ Gov Christie
    There was TV coverage of his and Lt. Gov Kim Guardagno’s (spelling?) swearing in; he delivered a wonderful inaugural address. Video is available on njn.net.

  54. President Obama ‘Surprised and Frustrated’ at Closeness of Mass. Senate race

    Didn’t we see this frustration and anger in his Web ad for her?

    He[Gibbs] said the White House didn’t need a special election to note the “tremendous amount of upset and anger” among voters about “where we are economically… In many ways we’re here because of that upset and anger.”

    The thing is there was anger and shame (about Bush) before the GE. But now there is anger over Obama from the same group. And add to it the anger from the Hillary Dems for his cheating and his incompetence.

  55. According to Bret Baier on FOx says it looks like Coakley may sqeak by according to the exit polls. They are covering for the cheating by Obama.

  56. I dunno, lots of rumors flying. Some radio guy in Boston is saying he has “inside sources” that tell him Brown won Worcester.

    That is a disaster, I will be sooo depressed

  58. Just about every election night, Republican pollster Frank Luntz assembles a focus group of likely voters to help predict election results. Tonight you can see Luntz interview an assembly of Massachusetts voters on Fox at 9:10 p.m. EST.

    But you probably won’t see all the work that went into it. As of late this afternoon, Luntz was still scrambling to balance his focus group with supporters of Democrat Martha Coakley. “I just lost another one,” Luntz growled over his cell phone from a hotel ballroom at Logan Airport. In the last 24 hours, six Coakley voters have dropped out. By contrast, Luntz hasn’t lost a single supporter of her opponent, Scott Brown.

    The problem isn’t money. “They’re getting paid well,” Luntz says, “probably more than they’re making at their jobs. And they still don’t want to do it.”

    Instead, says Luntz, they’re ashamed. “They don’t want to be on television defending Martha Coakley. It’s passé. It’s socially unacceptable. I never dreamed I’d see Democrats in Massachusetts embarrassed to admit they’re Democrats.”

  59. I heard Rasmussen was the only one doing an exit poll, so take it with a pinch of salt, they have been way wrong before. depends what areas they do it in also.

  60. This is from Admin’s XXII update..

    Mr. Brown’s surge was so sudden that many of the usual accoutrements of closely-contested elections are missing in the Bay State.
    One is exit polls. There will be none tonight from Massachusetts, disappointing journalists and political scientists alike. As Mike Allen of Politico.com reports, the consortium of news outlets that normally organizes such surveys didn’t bother when the race was expected to be a blowout and now “wasn’t confident a reliable system could be built so fast.”
    Another casualty of the expectation that the race would be a cakewalk for the Democrat will be an absence of absentee ballot fraud, the preferred method of putting an illegal thumb on the scale in a close race. Applications for absentee ballots had to be submitted by last Friday, providing little opportunity for those with ill intent to organize such an effort once they realized the race had tightened up.

    I wonder what that woman handing out absentee ballots today was trying to do?

  61. Comment From Mark N Mark N: ]
    Drudge – 50%+ turnout

    Also on the MASS twitter page above someone said there are no caot hangers @ Coakley’s. In other words, no one is planning on staying long tonight. Hope they are right

  62. Bloggers In Pajamas Scooped Again By Big Media
    CNN Audience Interaction Producer Eric Kuhn is all over this election, a step ahead of the rest of us, GOP candidate dominates social networking in Massachusetts:

    On the eve of the Massachusetts special election Tuesday to replace the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, the Republican candidate has dramatically more followers on social networks than the Democratic candidate.

    As of Monday morning, Republican Scott Brown has 76,538 fans on his Facebook page. With polls opening in less than 24 hours, Democrat Martha Coakley has 14,441 fans.

    On Twitter, Brown has 10,187 followers compared to Coakley’s 3,514 followers. The total uploaded views for Brown’s YouTube videos are 578,271 versus 51,173 for Coakley.

    Michael Calderone at Politico is not far behind:

    On the eve of voting in Massachusetts, CNN’s Eric Kuhn notes that Republican Scott Brown’s campaign has been effectively tapping into new media, and now has “dramatically more followers on social networks” than Democrat Martha Coakley.
    Damn, these guys are good.

    Big media has nothing to fear from a bunch of bloggers sitting at their computers in pajamas instead of working, who never would have thought to track social media as a reflection of the underlying momentum in the election.

    Update: Thanks to a reader for pointing out that HuffPo, the new media giant, is on the case also, as usual a step ahead of the solo guys and gals who use free blog software, like Blogspot, because it’s free and it doesn’t cost anything either, Coakley v Brown: The Social Media Divide May Decide Election.

    what happened to those people?

  64. I just saw a split-screen on Fox showing both candidates headquarters. NOBODY was at Coakley’s except one person. Brown’s was crowded. That is a good sign.

  65. Time’s Karen Tumulty:
    …I’m convinced that a Democratic loss, if it happens, is a sign of something much larger than the failings of one candidate. In talking to Brown voters, you come away with a sense that this is more about Washington than anything else. Sure, Brown has been a terrific campaigner. But no one I talked to seemed particularly aware of any position he had taken–except that he would be the 41st vote in the Senate to stop the Obama agenda. “Right now, people just don’t want to hear anything the Democrats have to say,” one veteran strategist from the Kennedy operation told me. “They think there is a lot coming out of Washington, and none of it is for them.”

    oh, to be young and in love! I could see his tenderness towards her in that split second. (sounds like Mills and Boon, though I never read one but mocked in HS all the time. :))

  72. 13% of the vote in. 53% to 46% Brown ahead. This might be over sooner than we expected. We watch for the numbers at 3 benchmarks 10%, 30%, 50%; at that point numbers begin to settle in not very close elections.

  73. Coakley adviser fights back against WH spin:

    politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0110/Coakley_adviser_memo_DC_Dems_faled_Coakley.html?showall

  74. I was just told that Rassmussen was the only polling entity to do exit polling. The say 20% of the dems broke for Brown, and 65% of the indies went for brown. Exit polling is hardly an exact science but if that holds true across the precincts, then Brown has got it. There will be no Republican defections in this race.

  75. Lets be fair here as well..While I want Mr. Brown to win b/c it will humiliate the dimocrats (and particularly the arrogance of Ted Kennedy who in large part cost Hillary the victory and tarnished Bill’s reputation to enhance the so-called Kennedy mystique), ordinarily we would support a good woman like Coakley who did stand by Hillary. On a personal level I will feel bad losing a pro-choice woman in the senate, but sadly, she is just another casualty of ego-maniac / black Jesus Obama.

  76. This could be ugly.

    Everett is reporting 17 of 18 precincts.

    52% Obama/Coakley
    47% Brown

    In the presidential election, it went 2 to 1 for Obama.

  77. My town reported 2100 votes today compared to 2700 in the Presidential election.

    The town went 55% – 45% Obama over McCain.

    Today it went:

    58% Brown
    41% Obama/Coakley

  78. Just in on Fox, Obama says that HC will not fail if Martha loses
    —————————–
    Precatory words. Not binding. You see them in wills. It is my earnest hope and desire that my heirs will spend their inheritance wisely. Not enforceable. Just remember connie–he is a pathological liar, and contrary to what he believes he does not control the universe. In medical circles it is called a Napoleonic complex/

  79. If Brown wins, he must avoid a second vote at all cost. That leaves dims out on a limb–just like Craig. It will go down like a mouth full of grass burs. They will vote no on the rest of his agenda knowing that is the only hope they have left to avoid charges of treason by their constiutuents–ya know the people they were elected and swore an allegiance to serve. Oh-them?

  80. A new republican star is born, a telegenic, erstwhile Cosmo model/hunk who can come back with a quick line like ..it’s the people’s seat, stupid!

  81. Well, he could run for Potus in 2012, Obama did. If he is truly a new star, we shouldn’t hear he doesn’t have any experience.

  82. djia, I think Palin has peaked already. Her Fox appearances didn’t show any growth in her weakest spot which is her intellect and talking coherently policy wise. She has a lot to catch up on. But Brown has time and he is from MA and pro-choice.

  83. I have not had this much fun since New Hampshire. I hope the wine supply holds out.

    Win lose or draw the dims have awakened a sleeping giant.

    The polls predicted this. If the Machine steals it then the effect will be megapolitical.

    Think what it would be like if the entire country feels what we felt when they stole the election from Hillary,

    The republicans need to be careful here. They cannot ride the tiger if they go back to the god squad.

    This is a strike against political corruption and for common sense by both parties.

    66% precincts in: Scott is 53 and Coalkley is 46.

    Coakley blaming Obama.

    CNN cuts away–then blitzer solo–not big panel–back to Haiti–tells you who they are

  84. It’s not “Coakley Lost”.

    It’s “Obama/Coakley Lost”. We shouldn’t let Mr. Poison of the hook. It was really his loss.

  85. Pm

    I don’t agree, I think Palin is still hot and has the same time period to come along as well.

    but only time will tell 😀

  86. wobb

    Rass ALSO called it for Coakley 49-47 today. We all know how they fly.

    Please, no talk of President Brown, we already have an inexperienced person @ the helm, and though I think Brown would do a far better job…I’m still holding out for Hillary

    and really, this win may help her in the end

    At least they got the exit poll right. Too bad because I was ready to tear apart Zogby.

  89. I would love to know how many Hillary supporters voted for Brown. I don’t think these results are just about health care, the deficit, and jobs.

  90. Now Democratic Leadership are you going to learn from this.

    You did this to yourself, you put that disaster there, now f$cking fix it.

  91. YES, YES, YES. Massachusettes and the US WINS…Ole Teddy is prolly rolling over and shitting in his vodka. Fuck em all that hatcheted Bill and Hillary. The hubris of this party makes me curse and hurl every day. I hope they are ALL voted out in November just to show them that they CANNOT take the voters for granted.

    Get yourself to your Senate seat Mr. Brown. Honest to God, I’m thinking about fukcing leaving the party all together. They offer me NOTHING now.

  92. Hill and Bill will not forget Coakley
    ———————————-
    Coakley is a good person. She will always have their support and ours. But she was forced to hitch her wagon to the wrong star, and in a sense that is what so many people have done. Obama may not be the devil, but he is the next best thing to it. He is a clear and present danger to this country. And keep those fucking Saudis (his master) dirty hands off of FOX. And keep them away from our banks. It is because of regimes like theirs that horde their wealth and leave their own people destitute that we have extremism in the world. Do not blame the United States, do not blame Israel, blame them and their gold plated C-modes and bedais.

    ==========================
    Yes, Jan — many many voting for Brown today were talking payback for what they did to HIllary!

  94. Just wait until tomorrow, Obama is going to be persona non grata and the democrat senators and reps are going to run like the wind from him, he’s toxic, a lame duck.

    If it can happen in Massachusetts, its going to happen everywhere.

  95. Let me be more specific: what I see in their move to buy a major interest in FOX is an attempt to buy out dissenting opinion against Obama whom their royal family sponsored to get into Harvard.

  96. Yup that was some prediction by zogby, Coakley by 1 and Rassmussen to be fair said last night on fox, Brown by 2, he was hedging, he knew he’d win.

  97. We’re sitting here with such mixed emotions — partly wanting to scream and dance and yet there’s the shock and the “oh, God, can this really be true? factor.

  98. Somewhere Bill and Hillary Clinton are laughing their leg off, Kennedy stuck his nose in, and its his legacy now that is dead, buried and battered, not the Clintons.

    Ted Kennedy, you lost, the Clintons legacy is still standing

  99. I bet, what better way to get back for what they did to Hillary but to cut the head of the snake off right in his own state of Ma. He is rolling over in his grave tonight.

    Kennedy-townsend on Larry King Live. Democrats saying they are not voting for the senate bill. That’s good.

  100. It was hilarious. Dean was on CNN BLAMING, are you ready? BUSH
    ——————————————————-
    Naturally. Contrary to popular opinion that Bush was a blithering incompetent who could not complete a sentence he was an evil Machiavellian master of the universe capable of sending death rays at adversaries and controlling the minds of the great unwashed. Dean should be institutionalized.

  101. Rachel Maddow just reported that supposedly Barack Obama just called Scott Brown to congratulate him on his win.

  102. Remember that awful State of the union 2 ys ago…THE SNUB!!!!!

    Well next week I hope somebody give all the DEMS that snub!!!!

  103. You know, how we were all keeping lists of Hillary traitors that went under – Judas, Dodd, Craig, Timmeh, Caroline, Teddy, Kerry, and so on. Well, tonight we sacrificed one of our own. But it feels good to take down DNC and WH. Will Rahm be the one to go next for this debacle? Hope so.
