Toss up in Massachusetts

The Massachusetts Senate race is now a toss up.

Buoyed by a huge advantage with independents and relative disinterest from Democratic voters in the state, Republican Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 48-47.

Here are the major factors leading to this surprising state of affairs:

“Potential disaster”

Yikes. From Public Policy Polling — no numbers yet, but remember, this is not Rasmussen, which tends to slant Republican:

This has become a losable race for Democrats- but it could also be easily winnable if Coakley gets her act together for the last week of the campaign. Complacency is the Democrats’ biggest enemy at this point and something that needs to be overcome to avoid a potential disaster.

Let’s just be obvious about this: Scott Brown has absolutely no business being in the same area code as Martha Coakley…

Hey Obama? Blue-Nosed Massachusetts Marxist Socialist Progressive Elites? Leftist Lap Dog Bloggers who want to be breast fed by them? Don’t blame Martha Coakley’s campaigning efforts… nor Obama’s campaigning efforts on behalf of DEM Governor candidates in New Jersey or Virginia who lost soundly.

Who is to Blame? Those so-called  astro-turfing redneck illiterate racist tea-bagging racist selfish gun-toting racist bible-carrying small-minded terrorist Jihadist-hating anti-communism torture-loving townhall-ranting non-existent 912 DC rallying racist tobacco chewing carbon-dioxide spewing racist confederate-nazi troglodytes and neanderthals? Did I mention racistYeah… BLAME ALL OF US! lol

uhhhh…. wait a minute…

We are talking Massachusetts here… the so-called Bluest of all Blue States in the Union… The People’s Republic of Taxachusetts… Home of Progressive Elitism, au-delà de comparer.

right? RIGHT???

Sooo… What happened to the 100+ years of Progressive brainwashing within the 100s of Universities in Massachusetts?

Was something slipped in the public water supply? Is there some sort of Mass Hypnosis via FOX News going on? Perhaps there is a Fifth Column in the ranks of Marxists Socialists Woodrow Wilson Progressive Worshipers there?

How could it possibly be? ..that  Martha Coakley is actually trailing Scott Brown in Massachusetts?

After all… what’s not to LOVE about Marxism Socialism Progressive-ism?

right? RIGHT?

    Democrat Martha Coakley, buoyed by her durable statewide popularity, enjoys a solid, 15-percentage-point lead over Republican rival Scott Brown as the race for US Senate enters the homestretch, according to a new Boston Globe poll of likely voters.

    The UNH poll published by the Boston Globe (owned by the Leftist New York Times Co) is obviously a statistical outlier, a false fat rabbit, thus a socialist ploy to print false manipulating poll results.

    That tactic could likely backfire and result instead in unmotivated and/or jaded progressive DEM voters staying home on election day thinking it is in the bag while progressive-rejecting motivated voters redouble their efforts to get out the vote amongst themselves.

    I will publish a new blogpost on this election this morning.

    how bout incestuous homophobic hillbilly predators? lol

    when my son was in preschool, there was a home that sat way down below a bank that was behind the preschool. There was a family of hillbillies who lived there and some grade school kids were in the woods on hillside and were taunting the hillbilly kids. So their uncle or brother comes out and starts screaming at the kids with such profanity that they never heard before about what he was gonna do to them and where, if you catch my drift. It was quite disturbing.

    Venezuela faces risk of devastating power collapse

    By FABIOLA SANCHEZ / Associated Press Writer

    CARACAS, Venezuela – Venezuela is at risk of a devastating power collapse as drought pushes water levels precariously low in the country’s biggest hydroelectric dam, posing a serious political threat for President Hugo Chavez.

    Chavez on Friday said his government is determined to keep Guri Dam from falling to a critical level where the turbines start to fail in the next several months. He has also imposed rationing measures that include penalty fees for energy overuse, shorter workdays for many public employees and reduced hours for shopping malls.

    The entire South American country of 28 million people depends to a large degree on the massive Guri Dam, which holds back the Caroni River in southeastern Bolivar state. It supplies 73 percent of the country’s electricity by feeding the massive Guri hydroelectric plant – the world’s third-largest in power output – along with two other smaller plants.

    White House Economic Adviser: Jobs Picture is ‘Still Terrible’

    Council of Economic Advisers chief Christina Romer said it’s devastating that some workers have been unemployed for two years and that job losses were continuing nearly a year after passage of the so-called stimulus bill.

  48. samiam60 says:

    A top White House economic adviser said Sunday “you’ll get no argument from” her on the need to improve the miserable jobs picture.

    Council of Economic Advisers chief Christina Romer said it’s devastating that some workers have been unemployed for two years and that job losses were continuing nearly a year after passage of the so-called stimulus bill.

    The jobless rate remained at 10 percent in December as 660,000 people said they had left the workforce. But Romer couched the news by saying the siphoning of jobs from the market has slowed.

    “In the first quarter of 2009, when we first came in, we were losing on average 691,000 jobs per month. With these new numbers in the fourth quarter, we were losing 69,000 jobs,” she said. “It’s still terrible. We’re still losing jobs, and we absolutely have to go from losing any jobs at all to adding them at a robust rate.”

    Romer wouldn’t predict what the unemployment rate will be in the fall, when members of Congress face re-election, but said it is “still a very realistic estimate” that job growth could begin in the spring.

    She added that she wants to work on convincing firms that are considering hiring to take the plunge.

    Romer also appeared to back a House effort to pump an additional $75 billion in federal spending into the struggling economy and pointed to targeted programs like longer COBRA health insurance coverage and “cash for caulkers” — energy saving retrofits — as ways to expand growth.

    “The sense that we need to do more is overwhelming,” she said.

    Foxwood,

    That is my deepest hope also but remember if Marshal Law declared the Constitution is Suspended. So is there Oath to uphold it.
    I am sure the Socialists have considered what the response would be from our Military under Marshal Law. What they have planned for America has been planned for decades now.
    They have crossed every T and dotted every i.

    We can only hope that True Patriotism wins the day when push comes to shove.

    I am so happy to hear the news that Massachusetts is a toss up state. I went to school there and so am very sentimental but also a political realist about what kind of anchor state it is in the region.

I can trace my ancestry on both sides back to the Normans who came to France from Norway at the invitation of the Frenh King to protect France.

    Steele Calls on Reid to Resign as Senate Leader After Obama ‘Negro’ Comment

  70. samiam60 says:

    Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele on Sunday called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to resign for describing Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign as “light-skinned” with “no Negro dialect” unless he wants to have one.

    Steele also accused Democrats of hypocrisy on the matter.

    “There is this standard where Democrats feel that they can say these things and they can apologize when it comes from the mouths of their own. But if it comes from anyone else, it is racism,” Steele told “Fox News Sunday.”

    “If (Senate Minority Leader) Mitch McConnell had said those very words that this chairman and this president would be calling for his head, and they would be labeling every Republican in the country as a racist for saying exactly what this chairman has just said,” Steele continued.

    Reid went into damage control over the weekend, mobilizing a raft of supportive statements both in Washington, D.C., and Nevada.

    Reid spoke by phone to numerous senators and took part in the regular weekend call with Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island to go over the Sunday show talking points on his gaffe and other topics.

    Reed and Reid were on the call with staff members for Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Joe Lieberman. The message: Reid did it, it was wrong, he apologized immediately, the president has accepted the apologize, time to move on.

    “Harry Reid made a misstatement. He owned up to it. He apologized. I think he is mortified by the statement he’s made,” Reed said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And I don’t think he should step down. I think he’s a valuable member of the Senate and someone who’s going to continue to lead.”

    Reid also called prominent African Americans, including National Action Network head Al Sharpton, Democratic strategist Donna Brazile, NAACP Chairman Julian Bond, House Majority Whip James Clyburn, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Rep. Barbara Lee and Leadership Conference on Civil Rights chief Wade Henderson.

    Reid was not going to speak publicly about the matter on Sunday. As of now, aides say he has no plans to cancel his appearance at a scheduled event on energy on Capitol Hill on Monday.

    Reid is taking ownership of his comments, having made the remarks directly to one of the authors of “Game Change,” the tell-all book on the 2008 presidential campaign being released Tuesday. Reid spoke straight to author Mark Halperin in context of what he believed was a positive statement about why he backed Obama as early as he did.

    Reid and his staff did not expect this direct quote to appear in the book and he began apologizing shortly after the excerpts were reported on the Web site of The Atlantic magazine. According to several sources familiar with the senator’s actions, Reid called Obama from his home in Searchlight, Nev. Obama took the call in the Oval Office.

    “I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African-Americans for my improper comments,” Reid said in a statement.

    “I was a proud and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama during the campaign and have worked as hard as I can to advance President Obama’s legislative agenda.”

    In a written statement Saturday, Obama said he accepted Reid’s apology “without question because I’ve known him for years, I’ve seen the passionate leadership he’s shown on issues of social justice and I know what’s in his heart.”

    “As far as I am concerned, the book is closed,” he added.

    A senior Democratic source with close contacts on Capitol Hill said Reid is not depending only on Obama for forgiveness.

    “He’s in the midst of an aggressive mea culpa tour that has thus far produced supportive statements from key African American leaders in the Congress and civil rights community. He’s got a strong record on social justice and related issues and is doing the right thing by immediately taking responsibility for the comment. He knows it was a boneheaded thing to say and is showing appropriate remorse,” the source said.

    Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine also defended Reid. “I don’t think this is an issue that is going affect his leadership at all. In fact, he’s doing some very heavy lifting — wonderful lifting right now to get this health care bill over the goal line,” Kaine told “Fox News Sunday.”

    The Democratic source added that Reid will likely not lose his position, as Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott did after his 2002 tribute to the now-deceased Sen. Strom Thurmond on his 100th birthday.

    “The only way he gets deposed is if the Democrats decide they have a political interest in seeing him go. Based on the reaction thus far, he’ll endure a few bad days but will be fine in the long run and can focus his efforts on his campaign.”

    But Steele responded that if Lott is the standard, then Reid’s comments fall into the same category for resignation.

    “It’s more than just an apology here. It’s a reflection of an attitude. Now, remember, this is the same leader who, just a few weeks ago, you know, was talking about health care in the context of slavery. Clearly, he is out of touch not only with where America and his district are but where — how African-Americans generally feel about these issues,” he said.

    Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., agreed that if Lott should have resigned, then Reid should too.

    “Harry Reid has said a lot of insensitive things for which he’s had to apologize,” he said. “My tendency is that when these people apologize, if you know what’s in their heart, they shouldn’t. But I’d like to see the same standard applied to both.”

    Reid’s aides cite vast differences between him and Lott. They say Reid has backed civil rights legislation, has voted for pro-civil rights court nominees, has promoted diversity in hiring in the Nevada casino industry and has always had an open and productive relationship with the civil rights community in his home state and nationally.

    With Reid’s poll numbers tanking in his home state, the majority leader is persisting. With no challenges to his majority leader position, he also will not drop out of his re-election race.

    But rank and file Democrats have been put in a difficult position. They don’t want to sound like nothing happened, but are uncomfortable criticizing Reid in public.

    I think our troops are being indoctrinated to follow the Geneva Convention Dictate…and it would benefit us ALL to go read that doctrine.

    I have faith that when they made their pledge to uphold the Constitution, they knew what they pledged to.

    Foxwood,

    That is my deepest hope also but remember if Marshal Law declared the Constitution is Suspended. So is there Oath to uphold it.
    I am sure the Socialists have considered what the response would be from our Military under Marshal Law. What they have planned for America has been planned for decades now.
    They have crossed every T and dotted every i.

    We can only hope that True Patriotism wins the day when push comes to shove.

    As always, enjoyed the post. I often forget to say so. I usually speak up if I don’t like something.

    I found sunglasses but here are some closer to Sarah’s. Are these true cats? I can’t believe a true cat standing for this kind of nonsense. They are too busy with other things – any other thing than paying attention to silly humans. This one was undoubtedly watching TV when interrupted.

    Hey, Harry – Where’s your hood?

    be back inna bit with the post :P

  107. samhenry says:

    It’s sad when Harry speaks and Nancy is not around to pinch him or step on his foot to shut him down. He looks as if he is a wind-up doll these days anyway. He just needs to go home and stay there or he will end up in a FEMA camp.

    I may be the least politically correct one on this blog.

    Kaine was actually saying that Reid was paying Obama a compliment. In other words Democrats think ‘Negro’ is an upgrade. And I have no doubt Reid uses Purell alcohol based hand sanitizers after shaking Obama’s hand.

    Reid is one tough dude. Hell, he even has a keen sense of smell. He claims he can smell ‘em (tourist coming to Capital Hill). LMAO!! Hubby is shaking his head.

    And the nerve of Democrats bashing Rush for airing the song – Barack the Magic Negro

    But if it were me I would title it:

    1. “Reid Don’t Like ‘Em Dark .. He Wants Light”

    2. “Harry Reid’s Motto: The Darker the Dumber… the Lighter the Brighter”

    3. Reid: Complexion of the White House

    4. Top Democrat Official Rates Obama as Negro Light

    5. Reid: Fe Fi Fo Fum
