From Twitter: those who don't remember the 2000-2008 Bush years are bound to repeat them. (Sorry, don't know who to quote now.)
Now, let's get down to business....

I told Lisa there is good news and bad news:
The bad news: This does not bode well for the Dems in the fall. There is going to be a lot of scrambling going on in Congress.

The good news: The Republicans will misinterpret this and overplay their hand with it. They see this as a Healthcare thing, a bank anger thing, an anti-Obama thing, but it isn't. Its an economy thing, pure and simple.

If the Dems can remove their collective heads from each other's asses and put this economy on some kind of positive track, they can salvage this thing.


Honestly, I am not hopeful.

May as well
get used to it.

Lisa G. said...

Honey, I'm not hopeful either - especially with Harry Reid leading the Senate.

Lisa G. said...

Signed - thanks RZ.

Kennedy is so pissed off right now - I'll bet he'll resurrect himself and say "Fuck this! I'm taking my seat back! Get outta my way!"

He's got to be spinning in his grave.

I hate to say this but the Democratic Party does not deserve to be in the majority.

Having a 60 vote majority, yes I know I'm including that Judas Lieberman piece of shit, and can not get anything passed what will they do now?

The truth was that they did not have a majority because we all know that Judas was a Dino and would block anything of importance to the American People. He should have been kicked out of the caucus and stripped of his Chairmanships and Committees after supporting McInsane.

Instead he was allowed to sit in and then pass on to his Nazi Republican Brethen the Democratic plans from the caucus. So in reality we only had a 59 seat majority and still could not get anything passed.

Now we still have 58 without Judas and will still not be able to pass anything even with Judas as number 59.

Kick his ass out since we now have a lame-duck President who's agenda will go nowhere.

Why? Because the Democrats have no balls and therefore do not deserve to be the majority in either House.

The next three years nothing of importance will get done and in November if nothing turns around in the economy we can look forward to a big loss of seats in both the House and Senate.

Thanks you asshole Democrats and Martha I should be at Fenway in the cold shaking hands lowlife piece of shit.

Thanks for taking the seat for granted and screwing the American People and Teddy Kennedy's life long work for the American People and America.

God Bless.

Tom...

Now you know why I don't blog much anymore. I'm burned out from what I see as a broken political system with no chance of being repaired.

America is screwed and soon we will be a third world country.

Time to hit the sack. Work in the morning.

Take care and...

God Bless.

This is a disgusting development. Coakley was a horseshit, mediocre candidate who got outcampaigned and allowed a Republican liar to frame the issues his way. This idea of Brown, an opponent of Wall Street regulation and universal health care, successfully portraying himself as a man-of-the-people type is as phony as phony can be. Congratulations, Massachusetts: you just cut your own throats by electing a Bush/Cheney-style free market, plutocratic phony. Shameful and unbelievable!

*shrug* You work within the constraints of the reality as it is not as you dream it to be.

I do agree with Anon though it is time for some lieberman bloodletting and a change in senate leadership.

And I do NOT want the House to pass unabridged the Senate HC reform package. It is the worst of the two pieces of shit proposed and also the one that panders to them whom do us the most harm.

Now we will see if the president is a fighter or simply an orator. This situation is not awfully dissimilar to what FDR faced and he came through it by being a brawler himself.
