We let the socialist Democrats win a 60 seat majority in the Senate. As a result, the Dems were poised to seize control of the private health care system in this country. Then an obscure politician from Massachusetts beat the overwhelming odds and took the Kennedy seat away from the Democrats.
Now we have a pretty good chance of killing ObamaCare. Conservatives should be eternally grateful for what happened in Massachusetts in January ― but some are irate because Scott Brown has bucked his party and sided with Democrats on a lousy package of tax cuts and porky spending.
I really don't understand how anyone can be surprised by this. Scott Brown was elected to serve and represent the people of Massachusetts...not the top conservatives on Twitter.
Don't get me wrong. I'd like to fill the Senate with Jim DeMint and 99 DeMint clones. But let's stay grounded in reality...
As far as I'm concerned, Scott Brown is a real leader. I'm not going to agree with him all the time, but he scored a big win in the People's Republic of Taxachusetts on a pro-waterboarding, pro-Gitmo, anti-ObamaCare, anti-amnesty, pro-gun platform while emphasizing fiscal sanity.
Anyone who can successfully lead their constituents in a rightward direction will get my support. So far, Scott Brown done quite well in that regard. In fact, I'm quite sure Brown is as good a politician as we’ll ever get from Massachusetts. But we shouldn’t expect the guy to vote like Jim DeMint.
When GOPers from states like SC, AZ and AK vote the way Scott Brown inevitably will, I’m very disappointed. But Scott Brown is voting from “Teddy's Seat.” Let's give him a break.
