"The measure passed 60-39 under ground rules insisted upon by Republicans that required 60 votes to pass it. Democrats and allied independents control 60 seats — for now — and were only able to win the vote because Republican Sen.-elect Scott Brown of Massachusetts has yet to be seated."

Obama is still campaigning but for what? He couldn't pass his plans with a super majority in both houses and now is warning the Republicans to go along with him?
He's still pushing for climate change legislation even as more revelations of fraud and deceit leak out of the IPCC and NASA stonewalls FOIA requests.
He attacks the Supreme Court like some angry child, throwing 230 years of decorum out the window. Sam Alito responded to the attack in this video but he could as easily have made the same comment "not true" about the entire speech.
His national security segment was late, unfocused and reduced to a statement about gays in the military as though he's unaware that most people are questioning his administration's handling of the Fort Hood shooting, the Christmas Day bomber and the move of GITMO military trials to criminal courts in NYC.
He calls for openness and transparency as though we're supposed to forget that he's spent the last 6 months behind locked doors with Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and a bunch of lobbyists for pharma and insurance companies.
There has to be a way out of this nightmare of a presidency. Let's take a closer look at that birth certificate. Maybe that's where Hillary Clinton really was last night.

In another stroke of staged brilliance, President Barack Hussein Obama takes to the teleprompter in front of a group of 6th graders. I didn't have a photo of the enthralled students but I bet they were impressed by the president and his imported podium. One wonders if this man has command of any subject sufficient to deliver off the cuff remarks.

This Friday, on the 37th anniversary of the constitutionally flawed and disastrous ruling by the Supreme Court in Roe vs. Wade, tens of thousands of people marched on the Capital to defend the personhood and humanity of the unborn. Amid new polls showing large majorities now consider themselves pro-life, and with a divided Supreme Court, the crowds for the annual March for Life only get larger and more enthused.

Massachusetts Race Still Close
Raleigh, N.C. – Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 51-46 in Public Policy Polling’s final survey of the Massachusetts Senate special election, an advantage within the poll’s margin of error.
Brown’s lead comes thanks to an overwhelming advantage with independents and the ability to pick off a decent number of Democrats. He’s getting the support of 19% of voters in Coakley’s party, while she is winning just 8% of the Republican vote. The lead with independents is 64-32.
Each candidate has seen a large decline in their favorability numbers as the campaign has taken on an increasingly negative tone. Brown’s +19 at 56/37, down 13 points from his +32 (57/25) standing a week ago. Coakley’s now in negative territory at 44/51 after being at a positive 50/42 previously, a 15 point net decline.
Republicans continue to show much more enthusiasm about the election than Democrats, with 89% of them saying they’re ‘very excited’ to go vote compared to 63% of Dems who express that sentiment. Brown has a 59-40 lead among voters in that category.
The likely electorate for Tuesday’s election continues to express skepticism about the Democratic health care plan with 48% saying they’re opposed to 40% who support it. President Obama’s approval stands at 44/43.
“Brown has a small advantage right now but special elections are unusually volatile and Martha Coakley is certainly still in this,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “She just needs to get more Democrats out to the polls.”
PPP surveyed 1,231 likely Massachusetts voters from January 16th to 17th. The margin of error is +/-2.8%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

"I can understand the frustration you sometimes feel when you are a minority opinion. I am one of only six Republican members in the Massachusetts Senate which is controlled by a majority of Democrats who number 34.I am proud that you are standing up for your viewpoint even though they might be considered unpopular by some classmates with opposing views. However being able to express alternative viewpoints is one of the foundations of our democracy and everyone is entitled to their voice."

|Dems Use World Trade Center Image as Symbol of "Greed & Corruption"|
|Posted by: Meredith Jessup at 3:53 PM|
|In a new ad out from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) attacking Massachusetts Senate candidate Republican Scott Brown, an image of one of the old World Trade Center towers and the destroyed Marriott Hotel's western side in lower Manhattan is used to tie Brown to "greed and corruption."|
Thankfully, since everyone and their mother has complained about this, the ad is now being run with a different image--another scary tall building.

BOSTON, Massachusetts, January 15, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a local radio interview Thursday, the Democrat candidate for Massachusetts' special U.S. senate election, Martha Coakley, said that those who object to participating in abortion and contraception, "probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room."
Coakley was responding to WBSM radio host Ken Pittman as he questioned her on her views about the role of conscience rights for health care workers.
Pittman asked, "Would you pass a health care bill that had [provisions protecting] conscientious objector[s] towards certain procedures including abortion?"
Coakley said she opposed an amendment filed by Republican candidate and state senator Scott Brown in a Massachusetts measure to protect the right of health care workers' not to distribute emergency contraception against their religious beliefs.
PITTMAN: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin, uh, you don’t want to do that.
COAKLEY: No, but we have a seperation of church and state Ken, let’s be clear.
PITTMAN: Yeah, in the emergency room, you still have your religious freedom.
COAKLEY: [stuttering] The law says that people are allowed to have that. And so then, you can have religious freedom, but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.
PITTMAN: Wow. Ok.
Bill Donohue of the Catholic League expressed shock at Coakley's apparent disregard for religious liberty.
"Conscientious objector rights are essential to religous liberty," Donohue told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) Friday morning. "I don't quite understand how someone - even if someone were an atheist - it's a staple in a free society that people cannot be forced to violate their conscience on something that's morally repugnant. But she doesn't seem to care."
The special election pitting Coakley against Republican Scott Brown in next Tuesday's election has received national attention: the unexpected popularity of the dark horse Republican could jeopardize the future of President Obama's health care bill by robbing Senate Democrats of their filibuster-proof 60 vote majority. Brown has vowed to be the "41st vote" against the health care overhaul, a platform that appears to have attracted rapid support for his candidacy amid widespread public discontent over the bill.
Once considered the easy favorite, Coakley has suffered a dramatic drop in poll numbers this week: a CrossTarget poll Thursday showed Brown ahead by 15.4%, while a Suffolk University Political Research Center published Thursday morning showed Brown ahead by 4%.
Some Massachusetts officials say, however, that even should Brown win the election, the swearing-in process could be delayed for weeks - long enough for the health bill to be pushed through.
