"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Problems For Obama


Massachusetts has stunned Obama's Democrats and elected a Republican to the Senate for the first time in almost fifty years.  Scott Brown has taken the late Teddy Kennedy's seat in a shock defeat for Obama's Party and puts full implementation of his healthcare bill in doubt.  It's as significant a victory for the GOP as the LibDems winning a GE over here and Nick Clegg becoming Prime Minister.

  2. Isn't it just? It's a fishslap for the Democrats who thought they were going to have it all their own way. Now the GOP will have enough votes to ensure proper debate.
