Democrats Scared by Massachusetts Senate Race, May Change Rules to Pass Obamacare

January 15, 2010

Democrats are increasingly scared by the prospect that Scott Brown may win the Tuesday, January 19 election. The latest polls have Brown leading against his Democrat opponent Martha Coakley.

Coakley has run an inept campaign. She took several weeks off after winning the Democrat primary.

Now she has said in a radio interview that Catholic health care workers who object to abortion should not have the right not to be forced to perform abortions. “You can have religious freedom,” Coakley says, but “you probably shouldn’t work in an emergency room.”

The Wall Street Journal reports on Coakley’s questionable judgment as Massachusetts attorney general.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee decided to help Martha Coakley with an ad attacking Scott Brown. They showed Brown with the World Trade Center that was destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001 in the background.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani was quick to condemn the offensive add:

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani tells National Review Online that the DSCC’s new attack ad against Bay State Republican Scott Brown, which uses an image of the World Trade Center, is “unthinkable, offensive, and a big mistake” that shows “how panicked” Democrats have become about losing Teddy Kennedy’s former Senate seat. “Never in their wildest dreams did they think they would lose in Massachusetts,” says Giuliani. “Now they’re using imagery from an area of New York where thousands of Americans died.” The ad, he concludes, “just understates how excessively negative they’ve become since they’re so paranoid about losing this seat. They’re now using buildings that were destroyed on 9/11 — which is just unthinkable — and somebody better look into what they’re really trying to say.”

Now President Obama has decided to campaign with Coakley on Sunday. He also campaigned heavily for former New Jersey Governor Jim Corzine who was soundly defeated in November.

Even rank-and-file members of the Service Employees International Union are supporting Brown.

Democrats are even starting to discuss how they will circumvent the Senate requirement for 60 votes to pass Obamacare.

There are only three more days of campaigning until the Tuesday, January 19 election. Support Scott Brown any way you can.
