With everything else going on of late, I've taken a bit of a break from political posts. Just a couple of comments:
1) I lived in Massachusetts for many years. Of all the places I grew up, I consider it more home than anything else. Shame on the Democratic candidate for not even trying to campaign and just riding along, and double shame for not knowing anything about the Red Sox. Yes, that is a big deal there. And lastly, a conservative teabagger wins by campaigning with his truck and riding on his so-called looks? It is shameful....a very blue state with a seat held by a Kennedy for decades. It wouldn't be as bad if it wasn't for lack of trying....but it was a lack of trying.
2) The above mentioned win in Massachusetts still does not give Republicans a majority. Since when - and in what math class - is 41 a majority over 59? Time to step up to the plate, Democrats. Get health care passed...get some of these things done and quit playing nice. It isn't about debates, it isn't about winning - it is about what the American people need. As far as the Republicans go, there is something said about standing up for what you believe in, but just saying no to everything and being difficult and playing games is stupid. And while they are at it, watch some old tapes of yourselves. Too many of you are against things that you were for before, but you say you weren't. You are aware these are on videotape? Lieberman is even against a bill he introduced in the first place. Ridiculous, game playing, and a waste of everyone's time.
3) Lastly, thank you President Obama. For finally getting to the point where you aren't overly nice anymore. The President Obama that did the last State of the Union address and his meeting with the Republicans...now that is the man I voted for. As Rachael Maddow said...something like "where's the popcorn?" it was so enjoyable. Calling people on their lies and being strong and direct. Now, that's what I'm talking about....
