In a stunning political upset, the Massachusetts Senate seat previously held by Ted Kennedy for over forty years was won by national newcomer Scott Brown. His win brings many complications for the extreme, far-left Obama agenda, watering down some things and outright killing others.
Happy anniversary, Mr. President.
Brown’s victory should be a wake-up call for everyone in Washington. The far-left agenda led by Obama and aided by Reid and Pelosi is on life-support. In a year, we’ve seen the epic failure of state control; high and rising unemployment numbers, decreased tax revenue resulting in larger-than-expected deficits, government takeover and the subsequent evisceration of GM and Chrysler, closing many profitable dealerships across the country for no reason, the devaluation of the dollar and the very real threat of inflation, the list goes on. Clearly, Marxism doesn't work, and America knows it.
The win sent a refreshing breath of clean air through D.C. Scott Brown showed the kind of strength and leadership sorely needed in Washington. When he pledged his opposition to ObamaCare, “I’ll stop it”, he simply and plainly laid out, in no uncertain terms, exactly what he’d do in Washington. No vacillation, no wishy-washy non-commitments. Just “Here’s what I intend to do. If you want me to do this, vote for me”, then let the chips fall where they may. This is the type of commitment needed by future candidates. Straight forward, lay it on the line, no bullshit politics, endorsing policies that benefit the majority of Americans. The right stand on the right issues will win, every time.
Naturally, conservative blogs are all atwitter (see what I did there?) at Brown's victory. Over at Pajamas Media, Richard Pollock wonders why it was so quiet at the White House last night. Our buddies at Founding Bloggers give us a poem. House Democrats have begun their retreat from ObamaCare. Ace brings teh funny, perhaps NSFW, IYKWIMAITYD, NTTAWWT.
Today is an historic day. The tide has begun to turn away from tyranny and towards freedom.
Be glad you're an American. You have much to be proud of.
