Coakley Concedes

I'm watching it as I type....

more later

Updates:

There will be one of two things to happen now, either the Democrats will learn from not only this defeat but also the previous two defeats recently and move more to the center and work with their opposition to make real changes on health care.

OR, they will go on the attack and get even more aggressive in an effort to cram as much through as possible knowing they are going to lose big time in the next two elections. They might try a reconciliation approach, but that will indeed spell their defeat in re-elections.

Seeing how they are already attacking Coakley and blaming her for this loss, I'm going with option two.

The Nebraska and Louisiana thug bribes, the Union bribe were the straws to the camel's back, and Coakley was stabbed in the back by her own party. Brown knows this race was not his win as much as it was the people's anger, disgust and drawing a line in the sand.

NO MORE - the people have spoken and will not again be silenced.



Some history on Brown:

Wiki: Brown is a graduate of Wakefield High School (1977), Tufts University (1981), and Boston College Law School (1985). He is a practicing attorney specializing in family law.

Brown grew up in Wakefield, Massachusetts. His father, C. Bruce Brown, served as a city councilor in Newburyport; Scott later recalled memories of holding political signs for his father from an early age. His father and his mother, Judith A. Brown, divorced when he was about a year old. Both his parents have since remarried three times.

During various periods of his childhood, Brown lived with his grandparents and his aunt. Brown has said that he "didn't grow up with all the advantages in life" and that his working mother needed welfare benefits for a short period of time. In an interview with The Boston Globe, Brown discussed his childhood circumstances and revealed that at the age of twelve he was arrested for shoplifting record albums in Salem. The 12-year-old Brown went before Judge Samuel Zoll. In chambers, Zoll asked Brown about his interests and if his brothers and sisters looked up to him. Brown said they did. The judge said, “How do you think they'd like to see you play basketball in jail?” The judge asked Brown to write a 1500 word essay on that question as his punishment. Brown said, "That was the last time I ever stole, the last time I ever thought about stealing... The other day I was at Staples, and something was in my cart that I didn’t pay for. I had to bring it back because.... I thought of Judge Zoll."

Brown graduated from Wakefield High School in 1977[3] and then earned a Bachelors of Arts from Tufts University, in 1981. He received a Juris Doctor from Boston College Law School in 1985.

He joined the Army National Guard when he was 19, near the end of his junior year at Tufts. He received his basic training, which took about two months, at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Brown has said the rescue efforts of Guard members during the blizzard of 1978 left a lasting impression on him. He attended ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) at Northeastern University. He has been active with the Guard for about 30 years and holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He currently serves as Army Guard's head defense lawyer in the New England states. He also assists the Judge Advocate General's Corps out of Milford.

Brown has been deployed to Kazakhstan and Paraguay. He has said, "I go where they order me to go... I'm just proud to serve and be part of the team." He wishes to stay in the Guard in the future, but he will be unable to do so given the service's mandatory age retirement rules at age 50. He has expressed disappointment at this rule, remarking that "I'm probably one of the most qualified soldiers in the entire Massachusetts [Guard].... I have enlisted service, I have infantry, quartermaster, JAG, I'm airborne qualified, I’ve been to all the courses". Brown received the Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service in homeland security shortly after the 9/11 attacks.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

His political views and voting record in the state senate seem to be libertarian/republican. Believes marriage is between a man and a woman but calls the states current laws allowing same-ses marriage as settled law. Same with abortion, which he is personally against, but says Roe v Wade is settled law.

Originally supported the state version of Cap & Trade, but now regrets that decision and will not support it in the Senate.

Time to write to "doggon" Doggett. Send him a pink a slip and a "get the heck out of my house" eviction notice.

Not just a scumsuckin politician but a scumsuckin liberal.

Pelosi runs up to Obama and Reid talking quietly in a corner. Exasperated, she yells at them:

"Master Obama! Master Obama! The peasants are revolting!!!!"

Reid replies:

"I know. I can smell them up here."

The second option seems more plausible. The Progressive Movement has worked toward a socialist US for almost 100 years. Destroying the dollar, enslaving the producers, and creating a larger entitlement class are what they need in place to solidify their rule. So, they will be desperate to get this stuff through or they sense that they will lose everything.

So, while we are being paranoid let me crank up the heat....

What do we really know about Brown? What do we know about his upbringing? Where did he go to school? What sort of voting record does he really have?

Aside from Brown, how many other non-democrat/non-liberals are from up in the area? Snowe? Collins??? And just how conservative are they?

Progressives/liberals are everywhere, in both parties. And now that things are getting really close where the progressives/liberals can taste it, Alinsky teaches that this is the time to really turn up the heat and go all out.

I expect Obama to become even more radical with Pelosi and Reid to back him up. I expect to see Obama create and push more executive powers. The EPA is cranking up and the FCC us trying to take complete control of the internet.

It is only going to get more desperate. Obama learned a lot about power in Chicago through thug tactics: "They pull a knife you pull a gun they send one of yours to the hospital you send one of theirs to the morgue."

The party is only just getting started.

I have since posted his speech, listen to him and see what you think. I like him. And frankly at this point, if he gets in and does NOT do what the people want, they will let him know loud and clear.

I so hope he drives that truck to Washington at least for his first day. Some moron news person at the end of the heckler video (see prior post) said Martha should have used Obama's line about not getting in that truck with Brown, but that would have been a HUGE mistake as the people up there took his truck and ran with it.

All during his speech you'll hear "gas that truck" being yelled.

Obama and Coakley came across as elitists during the campaign even while they were accusing Brown of being one. And here he is, driving around the state of Massachusetts in a GMC with over 200,000 miles. Talk about a misfire moment.

I'll add some history on him.

Antie Em,

Great write up. Thank you. I still have that Who song running around my head:

"...we don't get fooled again..."

followed by a loud scream.

Anyway, I was hearing on the radio this morning that Nancy Pelosi left the White House last night (this is where butt nekkid comes in with all sorts of visuals!) proclaiming that this does no stop anything. Other top advisers to Obama are saying that he is going full steam ahead.

Alinsky is driving our government by proxy.

Actually I think McCain is the one that requested the meeting. McCain is high in rank, a junior senator can't exactly say no right off the bat. Maybe he'll secretly tell the old man to step down...
