The fallout from this election will lead to 2 possible paths which will become visible here in the US and likely as not, starting tomorrow.

These paths are:

1. The democratic congress will take this election for what it is, a referendum by the electorate from one of the historically most staunchly democratic stronghold states in all of the US on the democratic congresses direction and tactics one year after Obama was put into office, take a step back and say "You know guys, if we keep on our current tack we're gonna likely get slaughtered in November. If we slow down, take a more genuine attempt at listening to what people are saying nationally we'll have at least some chance at keeping our congressional seats after the election.

2. They will instead do their best to stonewall Browns installment into the Senate and put their collective feet on the floor, knowing full well they will be sacrificed for their choices but choose to head forward at a breakneck pace to ram through the healthcare bill, cap and trade and amnesty for the illegals before they get the boot in November.

I'm goin with the idea they'll choose #2, though I'd really like to be wrong on this one sad smiley

I agree with you, I think they will choose 2 as well. They will try to push through as much as they can over the next few months. They will be trying to get as much for themselves as they can while they are still in office and do as much damage as they can before they leave. I only hope that this trend will continue through November and remove everyone who is in office right now regardless of party affiliation. Even remove the republicans who are in office now. This will send the right message that the people are tired of the same old politics and are willing to do a clean sweep to tell them. Only a clean sweep will send the message to all of them. If we leave the republicans in office they will see it as support for their party line and will continue along those lines. They have to be shown that we want a complete change and no more party politics.

Here's some interesting snipets I came across this morning :

The Wise Sayings of Master Barack: "We can't win them all." --Barack Obama (Memo to Obama: Please keep campaigning for other Democrats.)

Yes please, you've been so effective at helping lose elections, by all means please continue to stump for your buddies at every opportunity thumbs

No change here: "Regardless of the size of their minority caucus, Senate Republicans have always had an obligation to join us in governing our nation through these difficult times. [Tuesday's] election doesn't change that. In fact it is now more important than before for Republicans to work with us rather than against us if we are to find common ground that improves Americans' lives." --Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), himself in election trouble, on how Republicans should now shut up and help pass health care "reform"

An interesting take on the situation but, doesn't it also mean the liberals have a responsibility to work with the minority party and .... at least TRY to listen to what the public that elected them is seemingly trying to desperately to say (*facepalm*)

What states' rights? "Massachusetts has health care and so the rest of the country would like to have that too. So we don't [think] a state that already has health care should determine whether the rest of the country should." --House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), telling voters what's good for them

Since the elephant in the room is obviously healthcare and the clear message everyone else is hearing is that Browns election was part of a national outcry by the electorate (and in this case an electorate that even 1 month ago considered the Democratic candidate as a shoe in) who already has implemented state wide mandated healthcare that their election results show dissatisfaction with the system and they are attempting to relate their systems shortcomings before a similar system is shoved onto the American people totally

Pot and kettle: "You know how politics is. At times like this, there are always some who are eager to exploit that pain and anger to score a few political points. There are always folks who think that the best way to solve these problems are to demonize others. And, unfortunately, we're seeing some of that politics in Massachusetts today." --Barack Obama.

Another take on this might be that some politicians will always use their power and those of their mouthpieces to deride all opposition to their agendas by leveling charges of racism, having a total lack of a social conscience, being nut jobs, uneducated, misinformed instead of instead choosing to enter into meaningful debate with their opponents that could offer an opportunity to move forward instead (*facepalm*)

Speaking of blaming Bush: "One thing the Democrats have done wrong? We haven't kept the focus on this disaster on the Republicans who brought it upon us. We've tried too hard to do that right thing, and that's to fix it, as opposed to spend more of our time and energy pointing the finger at who got us [here] in the first place." --Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI)

Seems as if this administration has attempted at every opportunity to lay blame elsewhere and even after the failed "stimulus" debacle it voted into passage (without congresspeople even reading what was in it!), continuing increases in unemployment, a failed international policy on making peace globally with those Big O claimed just needed to see a "different America", Big O still continues to carp on endlessly about this shit, attempts to shove national healthcare down our throats instead of actually attempting to do the truly positive things we need to get our country back on its collective feet industrially and right the sinking ship of our struggling economy totally

Tough luck: "Health care was the cause of my friend Ted Kennedy's life. So it sickens me that the Republican running to take Ted's place is vowing to be the 41st vote to kill health care reform." --Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT)

Seems the message your voters were very obviously trying to send you hasn't been heard yet. They don't care that it was Kennedys dream, it obviously wasn't theirs, and in turn, it wasn't his to pursue if the electorate he was supposed to be supporting didn't agree with him (*horse*)

From the crystal ball: "Let's remove all doubt: We will [take over] health care one way or another." --Nancy Pelosi

It's time to pull out the earplugs Nancy. The message is we don't want your vision of national healthcare fraught with convoluted back door dealings, concessions to everyone BUT the American people who will be expected to abide and PAY for it while every day the list of groups who WON'T have to bite the bullet just keeps gettin longer and longer hot smiley

World's smallest violin: "You know, folks ask me sometimes why I look so calm. I have a confession to make. There are times when I'm not so calm. ... There are times when progress seems too slow. There are times when the words that are spoken about me hurt. There are times when the barbs sting. There are times when it feels like all these efforts are for naught. Change is so painfully slow in coming. And I have to confront my own doubts." --Barack Obama

Really? Coming from the biggest narcissist to ever hold the office of president that's quite a statement. Should you choose to in future attempt to listen to the American people you might find us a bit gentler on you. It's your choice one way or the other but don't blame us for the result if you choose to continue on your current path drinking

Ditto: "We're all pretty unpopular. Why? Because people don't feel good, and we're the leaders and we're in office, and they expect us to do something about it." --House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD)

I don't suppose that unpopularity could be based on the fact that the liberals are doing their dead level best to ram a long list of liberalized agenda items donw the throats of Americans who just simply don't agree with them now could it angry

Unhinged: "It's that rare election where voters know exactly what they're voting on. If they're with Democrat Martha Coakley they get health care reform. If they go for Republican Scott Brown it's deliberate, premeditated murder for health care!" --MSNBC's Chris Matthews

Great "back handed" comment on your opinion of the electorate in Mass. equating their dissent with national healtcare while also in the same sentence equating them with murderers for holding that opinion eye rolling

Despicable: "I wanted to apologize for calling Senator-elect Scott Brown an 'irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, tea bagging, supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees.' I'm sorry, I left out the word 'sexist.'" --MSNBC's Keith Olbermann

This from a "newsperson" who calls conservatives rabid wack jobs ... Hmmmm (*butt*)

Predictions: "It's just going to get a lot uglier in Washington." --CBS News political analyst John Dickerson

That all depends on how things move forward from this point, the ball's in the liberals court grinning

Blame game: "While Coakley is a solid Democrat, she had never really worked directly with Kennedy on anything, according to a former Kennedy aide, so she didn't have the appellation of 'a Kennedy person,' which would have opened the door to a lot more resources earlier in the race." --Newsweek's Eleanor Clift with a strange explanation on Tuesday's election

Seems the concept that perhaps she was forwarding an agenda her electorate disagreed with must've flown right over your head there Eleanor. These folks are dangerous as hell as they seemingly are content with eating their own instead of reading the handwriting on the wall eye popping

Cheat to win: "I tell you what, if I lived in Massachusetts, I'd try to vote 10 times. I don't know if they'd let me or not, but I'd try to. Yeah, that's right, I'd cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. 'Cause that's exactly what they are." --MSNBC's radio talk-show host Ed Schultz

More of the lack of "fair and balanced" reporting from an MSNBC Obamaite mouthpiece who still calls anyone in dissent with Big Os policies a wack job. Kinda leads on to wonder if he actually ever hears the stuff that comes out of his own mouth, much less thinks about what he's said confused

Time to worry: "You have top Democrats like Barney Frank of Massachusetts who said flatly if Martha Coakley, the Democrat, loses, health care is dead. So what kind of planning is the White House doing right now for backup? What's their Plan B?" --ABC's George Stephanopoulos

Only time will tell but my guess we won't have long to wait to find out winking

"[It would be] a tragedy of Greek proportions if Ted Kennedy's successor ... is the one who was responsible for the death of health care." --PBS's Judy Woodruff

Perhaps the irony is that now that he's no longer in office the people of Mass. might actually have representation of their positions and opinions instead of his socialized agenda. Actual representation of the electorate, what a concept (*facepalm*)

"The stimulus was too small; policy toward the banks wasn't tough enough; and Mr. Obama didn't do what Ronald Reagan, who also faced a poor economy early in his administration, did -- namely, shelter himself from criticism with a narrative that placed the blame on previous administrations." --New York Times columnist Paul Krugman

Sorry but disinforamation can only be stretched so far. Reagan chose NOT to whip out the Blame Card at every turn and instead chose to further policies that lead to a rallying of the American economy that actually worked ... without mortaging the country to the Chinese in the process, nationalizing the banks, 2 of the largest automakers on the planet, or placing hordes or socialist agenda driven "czars" at the helm of undermining the countries economy, industrial base and trying to tax and spend his way out of a recession hot smiley

Not only is Coakley not fit to be in the Senate, even Kennedy's seat, that fucking cunt should be in prison for what she did to Gerald Amirault.

I am still going to have to hold my applause until November to wait and see if the American people vote everyone out and send the right message.

Kieth Olberman, Chris Matthews, and Paul Krugman should all be Tasered in the balls. I would do it for free, but not on PMSNBC, since I would want someone to actually see it.

How many women had EVER been elected to the Senate, Governor, Lt.. Gov in Massachusetts ?

It's the same number of women that Fossil has slept with in the last year.


Had Scott Brown lost now that would have been Epic.

The best thing that could happen to America, at this point, would be for space aliens to come down and abduct the entire Congress in one fell swoop. Second best would be for a solidly Republican Congress and a Democrat president to be hopelessly gridlocked for the next seven years, unable to agree on anything more substantial than resolutions in honor of famous dead people and National Marmot Appreciation Day.
