    Liberalism is dead. The Democrats are finished. They're leaderless, their party is in shambles, they're doooooomed. hahahahaha

    Ok, that was just a joke. The good news is that this election was about ObamaCare. Exit polls show it, common sense shows it, the fact that Massachusetts has had their own style of Obamacare and are extremely unhappy with it lends even more credence to the obvious. This election was a referendum, nay, mandate to stop Obamacare. Let's hope it's successful.

    Not so fast. You sound like one of the munchkins when they saw the house land on the witch. There are other witches. And they are just resting in their castle with their flying monkeys waiting for you to get complacent.

    Yeah, and one of them just got elected this evening.

    Stop looking at politics as just the Democrats being the evil witches.

    Uh, You forgot something.

    Brown was elected out of fear of my party's health care reform bill. If the house votes in favor of the senate bill, the bill goes straight to the White House without the need of a senate vote.

    In short, President Obama still wins because the GOP rejects both the house and senate versions of the bill.

    All this tells me was something I knew all along. "opt out" will not part of health care reform for now. However, the senate bill does lay the ground work for an "opt out" vote down the road.

    Food for thought

    Those shockingly diminutive little teenie tiny itsy bitsy coattails worn by President Obama got exposed tonight. >>>.<<<

    The gift from the majority of voters in Massachusetts today is one which will keep on giving.

    You seem to be saying that Republicans have nobody wrong in their party. I'm saying they do.

    As for my reaction to Scott Brown's win, I was more classy about it than anyone I like to think. That's not to say others weren't, but I gave a well-earned congrats to Scott and Republicans here on USMB and here in Mass.

    Don't know what's wrong with you. Though you're not very House like when your partisanship is showing. You guys won tonight, no need to act bitter about it.
