Martha Coakley (L). Came across as a brazen, arrogant and remote elitist that is part of the Beacon Hill power structure. Represents the party that gives you a pattern of indictments, ignoring referendums and perv and DUI members. Enough is enough.
Scott Brown (W) Played his cards right and stuck to his mantra theme throughout the campaign. Did not waiver off it and keep the national Republicans out of sight. He came across as the opposite of Coakley. That morphed Kennedy commercial and Southie commercial were well targeted. Populist message is a seller.
Obama (L) Gave help in NJ, Virginia and Massachusetts with the same result. His “rescue” is about as viable as FEMA’s was for New Orleans. The rhetoric no longer sells and the substance is not there. Jimmy Carter part II?
Health Care (W/L) That awful bill will be deep sixed or at least put on hold. Reform is needed in a sensible and progressive manner and not a rush job political agenda that the public saw right through. Now we may get coverage done right.
Media (L) No more full page ads. No more endless banal TV spots. No more mass mailings. Goodbye bottom line.
DNC (L) The Democratic National Committee has allowed a remake of 1972 when moonbats took control. Ask middle America what they think of Pelosi and Reid? To Bumpkin they are “Progressives.” LMBAO! IMO America is a nation of individualist who are abhorred by this drift to the nanny state and European socialism.
RNC (W) The Republican National Committee. They were broke and with little or no hope. Now the money will roll in and they can have their own little hope and change.
Bush & Chaney (W) Was fun while it lasted to run a Bloody Shirt campaigns but that time has passed. They no longer own the economy, the war or a bundle of foolish mistakes they made. All belongs to WOW and his own bundle of foolish mistakes.
Deval Patrick (L) If anyone was a loser before this election it was “One and out.” Now? This light weight might be dumped by his own party.
Independents (W). This is the voting block that calls the shots in this day and age. No longer tied to archaic political philosophy and mind boggling rhetoric. Where they go the election goes.
Vicki Kennedy (L) Certainly no star power for this campaign.
John Kerry (L) On cue he went dirty with targeted suggestions at the Brown camp followers. Old tricks that don’t play in this age. Swift Boat payback attempt?
Internet (W) Brown really used this to his advantage. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube hits were three to five times greater than Coakley’s.
Lobbyist (W) Oh did they pour money into the campaign the last few weeks - especially
Brown. Now comes the request for payback. Keep an eye out for a Brown sellout.
ACORN (L) As the line in the song says: “I’ll be watching you.” IMO one of the most despicable and corrupt political organizations within memory. Funny how Obama has a connection to them? Just coincidence. Their usual tactics were kept under wraps.
FOX News (W) The liberals thorn in the side. Whine all the want all it does is push the ratings up. They smell blood now and the various right wing pit bulls will be out in force.
Health Care Stocks (W) Nice bounce on Tuesday when pre election and exit polling were showing Brown winning.
Tea Party (W) Try all they want the Democrats have to face the reality this is not a right wing fringe group but a viable movement with growing clout.
Boston Globe-Democrat (L) This paper was nearly financially bankrupt and that would certainly match their ability to be intellectually bankrupt. The bow tied bum kissers even had a poll a few days before the election showing Coakley 15 points ahead. I feel your pain.
Polls (W) This is a science that is becoming quite exacting. The Suffolk University and their “Bell weather” has been 96% accurate in outcome.
Overrides (L) Taxes are really getting folks energized so the Middleboro group will face a momentous struggle to get an override approved.
Deficit Spending (L) If you loved the Bush budgets you’ll be absolutely ecstatic with the WOW budgets. Folks fully comprehend the excesses that are taking place and the fiscal con job emanating from Washington. Too bad the politicians don’t.
