Chiming in on Massachusetts

January 19, 2010

To say that I’m fired up about the special election in Massachusetts would be an understatement.  I’m out of my mind with anticipation.

Regardless of the outcome, a message has been sent about the direction Congress and the Obama administration have been taking this country.  In Massachusetts of all places, a Republican is running a competitive race with an establishment Democrat at a time when Democrats are supposed to be on top.  The message Congress and the president should be getting is that the people are fed up.  They don’t like the direction we’re going.  But, they still don’t get it.

A senior administration official said this about the surge in support for Scott Brown: “This is not a moment that causes the president or anybody who works for him to express any doubt.  It more reinforces the conviction to fight hard.”

And what that statement reinforces for me is the knowledge that our president and his administration don’t care what the will of the people is.  Why fight so hard against the citizens of this country?  Obviously they were arrogant enough to think they could spew whatever they needed to in order to get elected and then suffer no consequences later on.

Well I’d say the consequences are knocking down the door.  Even if Scott Brown loses, the message that is being shouted from Massachusetts is clear.  The only question is, is Washington listening?  The president might not be, but I imagine there are members of Congress who are.  None of them want to be turned into the next “Croakley.”

And if Brown does win, well, I’ll get back to you on that after I run through the streets celebrating.
