With voters going to the polls in the Bay State, it is interesting to watch Democrats react to what is widely expected to be a loss of a Senate seat they have held for decades.
Plans are being devised to enact the health bill quickly before a new GOP Senator can derail it by denying the House-Senate version the cloture vote needed.
Its like the President and his crew are in denial...The reason Democrat Martha Coakley is trailing is not because she called Bosox pitcher Curt Schilling a Yankee fan. Its not because she was lackluster on the stump.
The reason is that even in blue Massachusetts, people are pushing back against Obama and Democratic spending, taxing, regulating and blustering.
In a representitive republic, the people express their will through elections. The President and his ilk seem not only on the verge of losing a Senate seat, but also willing to deny the will of the majority.
If Scott Brown wins, look for it to be dismissed as hate-mongering "tea baggers" getting back at this transformational new President.
The real message is that Martha Coakley didn't go from a 30 point lead to a possible loss because she is suddenly reviled. The reason is voters have been getting too much of the chanage they didn't bargain for.
