Scott Brown

Here is the process by which Democrats want to pass Obamacare explained in 90 seconds in a clever video by the National Republican Congressional Committee’s Code Red project.

Hot Air has the ad that made the narrator, John Moschitta, famous.

President Obama has again demonstrated his hypocrisy by doing what he condemned John McCain for suggesting during the 2008 election.

Barack Obama on September 16, 2008:

Just today, Senator McCain offered up the oldest Washington stunt in the book – you pass the buck to a commission to study the problem. But here’s the thing – this isn’t 9/11. We know how we got into this mess. What we need now is leadership that gets us out. I’ll provide it, John McCain won’t, and that’s the choice for the American people in this election.

On February 18, 2010, President Obama appointed a commission to study the problem of federal government debt:

Feb. 18 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama signed an executive order creating an 18-member bipartisan panel to suggest steps to reduce the federal government’s record debt and deficits that he said threaten to “hobble our economy.”

Whether it is government spending, health care or any other issue, Obama’s “hope and change” continues to be nothing more than ordinary stunts that politicians with a vested interested in a growing government have applied for decades when they want to kick any serious decisions down the road, preferably beyond the next election.

If Obama were serious about reducing the federal deficit and debt, he wouldn’t need a commission that will provide its conclusions more than 9 months from today, on December 1, 2010, conveniently after the November 2010 elections. He could instead reverse his policies that have taken annual deficits from a couple of hundred billions to trillions for the next decade. Of course, as a radical leftist, he cannot bring himself to cut spending, regulations and taxes. Government size and control of American society must grow.

True “hope and change” are coming in the November 2010 elections if Republicans can consistently run on a limited government platform and can win the support and energy of the Tea Party movement. If Republicans falter in their opposition to Obama’s policies and the Tea Party movement splinters into supporting third party candidates, Democrats will win big.

Tea Party patriots have a natural home in the Republican Party. They can bring out the best in Republicans and transform the party to focus on limiting government to its essential functions including a strong defense against Islamofascism and other external threats.

Republican will disappoint at times. It is unfortunate that Scott Brown voted for the $15 billion jobs bill in the Senate. That doesn’t mean we should regret his election which may have resulted in the death of Obamacare. Brown is still on the right side of health care, the stimulus, runaway spending and a strong national defense. A staunch conservative / libertarian couldn’t have been elected in Massachusetts. We got the best we could get in the election of Scott Brown.

Tea Party patriots should study the 1992 presidential election where Ross Perot ran as a third party candidate and helped elect Bill Clinton. Republican saved us from Clinton’s potential excesses two years later when they took over the House of Representatives running on New Gingrich’s Contract for America and Clinton governed as a moderate Democrat for the rest of his presidency.

Obama is not a Bill Clinton who came from a conservative state. The only way to stop him is to win Congressional majorities in 2010 and deny him a second term in 2012.


President Obama’s arrogance knows no bounds.

In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous he said: “Here’s my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country: the same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry and they are frustrated. Not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.”

Yep, it is still Bush’ fault.

Obama advisor David Axelrod quickly followed with another lie. He told MSNBC: “I would note that Senator Brown didn’t run one ad on health care in the entire campaign. I’m sure you know that.”

The problem is, anyone can watch the following Scott Brown add on health care on Youtube:

Obama has had enough political survival instinct to tell Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid not to attempt to rush a final bill through the Senate before Brown is sworn in. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that such a move would just increase the outrage at the Obama administrations excesses although Harry Reid probably couldn’t figure it out by himself. Besides interim Senator Paul Kirk already announced on election night that his job was done, so there wouldn’t be sixty votes for Obamacare anyways.

This is no time for complacency. Like all Obama promises, statements that they will have to work on a more bipartisan bill come with an expiration date. In the end, what he may mean by “bipartisan” is that he just needs to flip one of the Republican senators in Maine to his side.

The Obama agenda will continue on other fronts. Obama’s proposals to tax and regulate banks have sent the stock market to a 2010 low today. The Cato Institute has a good summary of Obama’s relentless drive to raise taxes and create new ones.

Congratulations Senator Brown!

Thank you, Massachusetts!

The Kennedy’s still consider it their senate seat. Just today Patrick Kennedy referred to “his father’s senate seat” even though he doesn’t seem to know the candidate he supports well enough to get her name right: yesterday he repeatedly called Martha Coakley, “Marcia”.

The voters of Massachusetts are poised to take back the “People’s Seat” that has been controlled by the Kennedy’s for 52 years.

Tuesday, January 19, the election of Scott Brown to the US Senate could be the first shot heard in the 2010 voters’ revolt against the Obama/Washington political machine.

Brown’s opponent, “Marcia” Coakley, has made more mistakes than can be listed here, ranging from the serious, unconstitutional and outrageous, i.e. telling Catholics opposed abortion not to work in health care to the ridiculous, i.e. calling retired Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling who supports Scott Brown a New York Yankee. She is out of touch with all types of voters in Massachusetts ranging from Irish Catholics to Boston sport fans.

Democrats are frantic. One of their stooges on MSNBC has called for voter fraud.

If Independents, Tea Party Patriots, Republicans and, yes, moderate Democrats turn out on Tuesday to elect Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate, expect dirty tricks from the Democrat Obama machine to pass Obamacare. These could include delaying the swearing in of Scott Brown or making the House adopt the exact bill the Senate has already adopted to avoid another vote in the Senate. Speaker Nancy Pelosi must have a torture chamber ready for pro-life Democrats who cannot in good conscience vote for the Senate bill.

However the Democrats try to circumvent the will of the people, the reaction will be that much greater in the November Congressional election. Two weeks ago almost no one gave Scott Brown a chance to win. Today, he is, by all accounts, the front runner in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans three to one.

Conventional wisdom holds that Democrats will lose seats in the House, but maintain their majority and are unbeatable in the Senate. Regardless of the outcome of the Massachusetts race, Scott Brown has shown that if Republicans listen to the people, propose a positive agenda for limiting government excesses and don’t take the growing Tea Party movement for granted, anything is possible in 2010.
