Here is what Barack Obama said today in an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC.
"Here's my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country: the same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry and they are frustrated. Not just because of what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years."
Apparently, Barack Obama is determined to blame George W. Bush for everything--even losses in the Democratic Party. Bush has been out of power for more than a year. Obama cannot keep blaming Bush for every shortcoming in the Democratic Party and the Obama administration. For Obama to say something so audacious, he either has to have a tremendous lack of respect for the intelligence of the American people, or he simply delusional.
Scott Brown's victory over Martha Coakely in the Massachusetts Senate race is a referendum on the Democratic Party. The voters are mad at Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and every other Democrat in DC who is pushing our nation toward Socialism.
It is simply stunning that a Republican is hopping into Ted Kennedy's seat while it is still warm. Do not let the significance of this event go unnoticed. The voters are furious with the Democrats and their lack of concern for the American people. If the Democrats do not get their act together by the end of this summer, they will be losing hundreds of elections to Scott Brown clones all over the country in November. This victory could be just the first step in a major voter revolt that could change the political landscape for several years or more.
