Dems are scratching their heads today, throwing excuses as to Coakley's loss up against the proverbial wall to see what sticks.
From this source:
Rep. Steve Driehaus, D-Ohio, said Democrats never properly messaged the health care bill. "We have been so focused on getting the right number of votes and getting the legislation drafted that we forgot we have to message this to the American people and help the American people understand what's in it," he said.
Not enough health care reform: While some Democrats were saying slow down, others said speed up, and that the reason Coakley lost is because voters were frustrated by the legislative inertia in Washington.
"The reason Ted Kennedy's seat is no longer controlled by a Democrat is clear: Washington's inability to deliver the change voters demanded in November 2008," Service Employees International Union President Andy Stern said. "Make no mistake, political paralysis resulted in electoral failure."
Two reasons are incorrect in the leftists' assumptions.
One: We KNOW what's in most of the bill. WE DON'T WANT IT.
Two: We are tired of being ruled with impunity by petty monarchs. The damn chair doesn't belong to the Kennedy family, it belongs to WE THE PEOPLE.
Your arrogance appalls even traditionally blue Massachusetts. Wake up, leftists.
PS: I've not had time today to look up the statistics and I haven't heard a peep from the MSM. Does anyone have a link for the percentages of votes?
