"One the bluest of Democratic states, Massachusetts has a Democratic governor, an all Democratic congressional delegation, Democratic majorities in both legislative branches and a straight Democratic lineup through its six constitutional offices."

straight Democratic lineup.... Now that's funny, when considering it's Bwarny Fwanks state.

With only a week left to the special election and with it the sucess or failure of Obama's health care bill Mass senate race is very close. Extremely closse when you consider that the seat once held by Democrate Ted Kennedy is the one the candidates are vying for. During last night's debate republican candidate Brown was asked if he was elected to Ted Kennedy's seat...to which Brown responded it is not Kennedy's seat it is not the democrats seat it is the people's seat.

Given the state of Ma it is doubtful a republican can win however given the closeness of the race speaks volumes about the publics opposition to the current administrations programs.

Several Years ago I got a group of Veterans to openly oppose Ted Kennedy. We worked very hard to get him voted out of office. Then came election day with a 3 to 1 exit poll victory over Kennedy. Only come the official tally Kennedy won by a landslide.

If the Democratic Machine does it AGAIN we are all sunk AGAIN.

I was living in Chicago during the Nixon Kennedy race. 11 days after the election they dredged up 12 Federal Ballot Boxes from the bottom of the Chicago River. Those 12 Federal Ballot Boxes gave the city of Chicago to Nixon along with the state of Illinois and the Presidential election. At the time the Democrats held a majority control of the Congress so nothing was ever done about it.

During the Bush Gore election I talked with several Democrats who boasted of voting in the early elections in a northern state, voting with an absentee ballot and then voting a third time in Florida. The only reason why nothing was ever done about it was they lived in Democratic Districts. Up until then I believed that a Democrat could ONLY win when the election is fixed in their favor. Gore proved me wrong on that one. The fix was in for Gore to win and he still lost.

Let's pray the same thing happens in Mass during this special election.

One correction, I believe Chicago went to Kennedy not Nixon. Also if you haven't heard the union is out in full force "urging" voters to support Coakley. Next it will be Bill Clinton, Kerry, and ACORN.

I thought there would be more discussion on this site given the consequences of the election. Funny no one is reporting on Coakley's aid stopping the reporter from asking her questions.

Please reread what I posted.

The Unions have sealed their fate along with Health Care Reform.

Any Union member who goes along with the Union on Health Care Reform deserves everything that happens to them.

Actually I personally give union members more credit. Once they learn that they are going to have to pay MORE for their Health care and start receiving limited services they will jump ship real fast just as many Democrats have over the past few months.

The only way the Dems could win in Mass is to violate the election laws again and stuff the ballot boxes with fraudulent and fabricated votes. Hey they have done it many many many times before in Mass and Illinois. Like I said back in the early 90s when Teddy was up for reelection we had him beat 3 to 1 that according to the exit polls. When the "Official Vote" was announced Kennedy won by a landslide. I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens come election day.

ACORN and SEIU are being bussed in from other states. Brown doesn't have a chance against the corruption machine.

I pretty totally agree with you. It is so frustrating to know that so many are so ignorant of what is really going to destroy...

They had people voting in their home states of New york, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan during the early election. Then they voted again with their absentee ballots. Millions of Americans then voted again on election day after they arrived in Florida. And Gore still lost. Clinton even went as far as to withhold the ballots for our military and government employees serving overseas until it was too late for them to fill them out and mail them in and Gore still lost.

Anything is possible.

When I lived in Florida, it was common knowledge that the homeless in tent city, Ft. Lauderdale, were given 10 bucks apiece, and bussed to the polls to vote for the Democrats, using the names of the recently deceased.

That is nothing new Here in west Tennessee a person can be born a Republican. Vote Republican his or her entire life and vote Democrat after they are dead. There is one of our legislators who complained that the will of the people was being violated after she was caught with people living outside her congressional district voted for her and several dead people. She said and I quote if they were still alive they would have voted for me.
