    I hope freedom-loving politicians are taking notes from the Massachusetts Democrat, Martha Coakley. A few months ago, she was the shoo-in to replace Teddy Kennedy. Now, she might lose outright (although there's indications that even if her opponent wins, he might not be seated for a while. Scumbags.) She's run quite possibly the worst campaign in recent memory. Examples of her stupidity, campaign-wise, include...

    • Dismissing your opponent--especially in a year in which your party isn't exactly setting the world on fire. Not the brightest move.
    • Simply put, not campaigning...not going out there and shaking hands with "normal" people. (SOURCE)
    • Bringing in "heavy hitters" to campaign for you...but then discovering (by listening to their speeches) that they don't even know your name. (SOURCE)
    • Blaming your problems on a former president, now out of office for a year.
    • Frankly, not listening to the people of your state. This healthcare garbage scares folks...even Massachusetts residents...and Coakley basically ignores them.
    • Having supporters insinuate that they will cheat to help you win, and that if your opponent wins, they'll try to prohibit him from taking office for a while. (SOURCE)
    This is a lose-lose for the leftists. If Coakley wins--well, she's supposed to. If she loses, the D's might lose their healthcare edge (though I think they'll find a way around the rules). Should Brown (her opponent) win, but not be seated, (or as an MSNBC host suggested, "I'd cheat to keep those (profanity omitted) out...Well, at that point, I think it's time for a revolt.

    If the Kennedy/Kerry mish-mash is strongly considering ousting the Ds, what does that say about the "0" worshipers here who claim that the "people" are for all this liberal garbage?????????

    Like was said, this is a lose/lose for the Ds regardless of the actual outcome. This election should not have even been in question!!

    Senate democrats have already stated their intentions. Delay and stall seating Brown if he's elected.

    I'm not getting my hopes up. The dems don't usually allow themselves to lose close elections.

    rbell,
    First of all, I thank you for this topic and I hope that Coakley loses; I hope that it would stop this heath care debacle in its tracks.
    Still, the point that I wanted to make is in regards to one of the words you used in the above-quoted line. I used this same term in a conversation with an English professor from our church and was severely reprimanded. I had no idea what the origin and meaning of that word was...I looked it up and she was correct...it is quite offensive...I no longer use it.
    We often use that term to mean a worthless person, but it is actually far worse. It is a person who is not worthy of being procreated...and the exact meaning of the term is graphic and not suitable for discussion on a Baptist website. I am guessing that, like me, you did not realize this so I thought I should let you know so that you avoid the embarrassment that I went through.

    Anyway, let's hope for a great victory tomorrow.

    So true.

    If Brown wins, expect a recount, even if it's not particularly close. An ever so slow recount.

    Actually, I am surprised that the Democrats nominated Coakley, not a particularly strong candidate for this seat. However, it will not stop the health care proposal since the senate has already passed it and it is now back in the House. The House version can be made into law, and I would guess that if they think they can't get that 60th vote to stop a filibuster, they won't let it go back to the senate.

    But what happens if Brown wins? His election simply represents a return to the corruption, greed, incompetence and bad policies that led to the recession in the first place. People who vote for him are saying that exhorbatant bonuses and the legalized stealing that is causing the demise of the middle class, the robbery of small business, elimination of competition, insurance companies and energy companies creating monopolies and decreasing benefits while increasing prices and premiums for the benefit of a few, and that minimizing the importance of issues like abortion are all O.K.

    It's a lose-lose election, and until people realize that neither party represents their interests any more, we will be trapped between choosing one or the other.

    That is an oversimplification. It could be intelligently argued that over regulation did as much as Bush's spending to put us into this hole. Brown has promised to return to fiscal responsibility.

    Face it. The fact that this is even a close race speaks volumes. The zero's agenda is being rejected by the people.

    No the Senate version could be made into law.

    The bonuses are fair and no one's business. Competition cannot be achieved through the fed. And it says none of that in the least.

    Just thinking about the intimidations that are certain to be rampant, and hoping that there will be surreptitious videos being made all over Mass showing such - sorta like the black panther video of a few months ago.

    If enough surface, even the AG will not be able to keep them suppressed, and I would predict that even the (0) would throw them under the bus to keep his image!!!!

    Dear God let it be!!:praying:

    In favor of the current "corruption, greed, incompetence, and bad policies" that are destined to keep the economy in a perpetual recession?

    Are you against "hope" and "change"? :laugh:

    Crucified in Christ, I shall heretofore refer to these people (referred to in the OP) as "boogerheads."

    That term is descriptive, accurate, but carries none of the baggage, no? Hope that helps...

    :D :D
