        Yes....I am sitting here with an adult beverage celebrating that the "borrow and spend, spend, spend" Democrats have taken a mighty hit in the Mass. special Senate election. 

        Hopefully, this will at least put some brakes on Obama and the Polosi Democrats tanking our nation.

        Ahhhhhh....Ted Kennedy's seat going to the Republicans!  Karma is such a bit..h!

        I think that it was in part the news leaking out of all the perks and sweetheart backroom deals and her onw attitude which led to this defeat. I saw a clip from a John Stewart show in which Coakely was asked about her campaigning and she responded

        "Be out in the cold next to the ballpark shaking hands?"

        That kind of an attitude would even turn me to vote for anyone else no matter if they were my party or not. I oly think this will be interesting in the coming months to see what occurs.

        I am ECSTATIC of the outcome of that election in Mass!!  Holy Moly, if that doesn't send a strong message to the current administration about Americans being fed up and that we aren't going to take anymore....I don't know what will.  I've been waiting patiently for the REAL truths to come out after Obama was elected and they are slowly coming to the surface.  I'm terrified of what the govt run health care plan would do to this country, her people, and just hope...and pray....that with the newly elected Mass Senator, it will lose its momentum.  Yep...take THAT Obama

        Im not a gun owner myself but I'll cheer you on. As Andy Rooney said: Guns dont make you a killer. Killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a car or a baseball bat but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game!

        What is supposed to come out about Obama?  He is not GOD and he is about change, maybe not the change some people wanted but it was a change from the good ole boy network...as far as the change of guard in Massachussets, well the Kennedys held on it to it forever and now thats a change for: we will see.  President Obama inherited a lot and so its gonna takea lot to fix it, but working together is the change I was hoping for and some folks dont want that change and thats the bottom line here and thats my take on it.  I do feel President Obama needs to focus more on jobs and the economy because that it was needs some care ..and as far as health care...well I wish i had some but I will survive that too as I have for 54 and counting years.  It has been a year since he took office and it will take more than that too make some positive changes and there is a President but he doesnt rule alone, you have the senate the house and the lobbyists, the crooks, the special interest groups .....he has so much opposition, there are those that are out there too see him fail so that we will never have a president that is not from the good ole boy network and that is how  I feel about the whole darn situation.  GOD Bless America.....land that i live in.

        If I remember correctly, it was the Bush administration that started the huge unconditional bank bailouts. Obama continued with further bailouts, however, he did try to put restrictions/conditions on the bailouts.

        When Obama became president, he came into a no win situation, the economy had already crashed and no matter what he does, it is impossible for him to fix crisis he inherited.

        The public has continuously asked what he is going to do to fix the economy, yet when he does take action, he is bashed for spending money in an attempt to do what americans have asked of him.

        Now I ask, how do you think the government can help/fix the economy without spending?  Should they quit spending in order to balance the budget, quit helping all the people out of work who will be homeless, and hungry? Should they deny aid to Haiti, other countries, and individual states that are are devastated by disasters? Should they quit giving corporate tax breaks - sometimes referred to as corporate welfare? Should they not provide any bailout money?

        Do you think that it is time for survival of the fittest from large corportations down to the poorest of citizens?

        I am truly curious and very interested in the various thoughts and opinions on these questions.

        I think the one good thing about this is that Brown said "We don't want to throw out health care, we just need to redo it"

        Now that I can agree with. I am for all people having it, seen too many suffer due to the lack of it after I came back to WA. Just without all that BS that was put into the original.

        Arizona,

        I couldn't agree with you more. I think it is a no win situation. President O'bama was left with such a mess that did anyone really think he was going to save America overnight?

        It's just too unrealistic. It's so easy to sit back on the sidelines and point fingers. Maybe i am just naive.......but i don't think any man in office regardless of what political side of the fence they are on could be 'miracle man" we are looking for.

        Patience......its all about patience.

        I sincerely meant NO disrespect towards Obama in my previous posts, more of a frustration coming out of the let downs from all the promises made from his campaign.  But...that IS what politics are all about...what POLITICIANS are all about and I really don't care for ANY of them.  Yes, Prez Obama was left with a mess from the previous administration (as was the Bush administration) and I do believe he had the best intentions to try and fix what was broke.  Perhaps one year is not enough time to judge ones abilities as the "free world leader" but gosh darn it....we are heading down a path that has all the signals of self destruct and quite frankly, it frightens me.  I am conservative in my political and moral views and what I have seen evolving in the current administration's agenda, well, just sends shivers down my spine.  I think he is in way over his head. I have never condoned the 'good ole boy' politics and think it too, has done great injustice to our country.  Politics and religion are always such passionate, personal and emotional topics for us all aren't they?  I don't have the answers to our problems by any means, just don't agree with how those problems are being handled by our current leader.  But I still believe and hold steadfast to the love and respect of my country...for our freedoms to speak our minds without fear of persecution and WE as a people, are one wonderful nation.

        ok...one too many drinkies tonight....off to bed I go.  I don't speak much here on LCB, mostly gambling conversation but there are some topics that are just worthy of engaging in...respectfully of course

        arizonadback I think it's not that he's spending money, but it's how it is BEING spent. When I first heard about the "Stimulus Money" and grants I applauded this as I was sure that our crumbling infastructure would be brought back up.

        Nope, we're seeing companies who are well established getting it for some inprovements which they could have "Borrowed" for. However, the banks now won't lend!

        Or some of the money is going to states and what happens? They repaved roads already in fair to good condition. Is it any wonder that bridge collapsed in Minn?

        We DO need to spend the money, but spent wisely, we'll reap the benefits way down the road. As it is now, I fear more bridge failures and then the fingers will start to point. But it'll be too late for the unfortunate.

        I am not frightened, but wary of what is to come, but I hold out hope that this nation will recover, and discover a return to what we know what is right and continue to do so.
