Gas up that truck Scott Brown, you're going to Washington!
It took Obama just one year to become toxic to the Democratic party. It took Bush eight years for him to be a liability to the Republican party. Scott Brown has shocked the political world with his politically earth shattering win. When Obama and Kerry made fun of Scott for driving a pick up truck, I knew that their words were just helping to dig the political grave of Martha Coakley.
It can now be said that Barack Obama has no political capital left. Right now, he'd be better off just jetting off for another date night with Michelle. What does this historic election win says about Obama? Obama's "mojo" couldn't help a liberal candidate win in a liberal state, so what influence does he have as the leader of the Democratic party? The liberal lion Ted Kennedy was a senator of Massachusetts for 47 years, yet it took less then one year for a moderate-conservative candidate to win that seat. The election of Barack Obama has to be at this point the best gift the GOP could have ever wished for. Republicans should now be finding ways to get Obama to campaign for other Democrats this year. In essence, the man has become a jinx to his party. The people tried to tell Obama, Pelosi and Reid that America is a center-right nation. They didn't want listen. It was easier for them and their supporters to just label the people as "tea baggers" and members of the "mob".
The lesson learned by the victory of Scott Brown is that "trying to polarize people with opposing views doesn't help to win elections". Their attacks on Scott Brown because he drives pick up truck is no different then when the liberal elites attacked Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin. Hate, venom and smears don't play well among independent voters. Scott Brown won among independent voters by a margin of 73% to 25%. That is nearly a 3 to 1 margin. How embarrassing is it that Obama and Bill Clinton had to come into what was suppose to have been a solidly blue state to try and help a well known liberal candidate beat a politically unknown Republican candidate? What's more embarrassing is that it didn't work.
