The meaning of Scott Brown | Op-Ed Contributors | Jerusalem Post

January 25, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Obama thinks the wave of outrage that swept Scott Brown into office is the same one he rode in on? 

Well, not exactly.  Charles Krauthammer sums it up very nicely.

And the Democrats are delusional: Scott Brown won by running against Obama not Bush. He won by brilliantly nationalizing the race, running hard against the Obama agenda, most notably Obamacare. Killing it was his No. 1 campaign promise.

Here’s another of my favorite quotes:

An astonishing 56 percent of Massachusetts voters, according to Rasmussen, called health care their top issue. In a Fabrizio, McLaughlin & Associates poll, 78% of Brown voters said their vote was intended to stop Obamacare. Only a quarter of all voters in the Rasmussen poll cited the economy as their top issue, nicely refuting the Democratic view that Massachusetts was just the usual anti-incumbent resentment you expect in bad economic times.
