It sure didn’t take long for someone to blame Martha Coakley’s defeat in Tuesday’s Massachusetts special election on sexism.
If you thought it was because of the economy, or a backlash against Obama’s agenda and/or healthcare reform, think again, for Jeannie Cummings and Erika Lovley of Politico claim Scott Brown won because he’s a man and his opponent was a woman.
Speaker Pelosi In Total Denial Following Bay State Backlash – Ready to Take Down Dem Party For Obamacare
And already Tuesday night, Democrats were being forced to come to terms with the prospect that their decades-long goal of health reform might once again fall short, despite getting closer to becoming law than ever before.
Pelosi insisted Democrats could still make it happen. “We will get the job done. I am confident of that. I have always been confident of that,” she told reporters as she left the Capitol at 11:30 p.m.
“Massachusetts has health care and so the rest of the country would like to have that too,” Pelosi said, referring to the state’s health care program. “So we don’t [think] a state that already has health care should determine whether the rest of the country should.”
Not even Barney Frank was this clueless.
Frank released a statement last night calling on Congress to change course on health care.
Olbermann blamed the racists in Mass. Yeah, the ones who voted for Obama.
Team Coakley blamed Obama and the DNC.
Obama blamed everyone except himself.
Congressman Weiner blamed the administration for not having health care passed yet.
Washington (AP) – A few months ago, the question was not who would win Massachusetts’ open Senate seat, but which Democrat. Now it’s which Democrats get blamed for losing it.
Unfriendly fire engulfed the party long before the polls closed Tuesday and Republican Scott Brown had defeated Democrat Martha Coakley. Washington insiders a week earlier began blaming Coakley, while her campaign fired back that national Democrats didn’t help her soon enough.
There wasn’t much somber analysis of what drove independents from Coakley to Brown in the race for the Senate seat once held by Edward M. Kennedy. Democrats were too busy sniping in the classic Washington way: under cover of anonymity.
But President Barack Obama’s senior adviser took precise, public aim at Coakley’s camp as Brown closed in on the prize.
"I think the White House did everything we were asked to do," David Axelrod told reporters before the polls closed Tuesday. "Had we been asked earlier, we would have responded earlier."
Most of us who keep up on the Global Warming Hoax were aware of this one. Pretty much an unsubstantiated comment with zero scientific proof (in fact it did have proof… against it) became a UN mantra to prove to the world that we were doomed and they needed huge amounts of money to stop it.
Sure, it’s almost physically impossible for glaciers miles long and hundreds of feet thick would just melt away in such a short time, but that doesn’t matter. Science just gets in the way. Send us money!
The Himalayan glaciers won’t be gone by 2035? Well I’ll be…..color me surprised
(AP) A U.N. warning that Himalayan glaciers were melting faster than any other place in the world and may be gone by 2035 was not backed up by science, U.N. climate experts said Wednesday – an admission that could energize climate change critics.
In a 2007 report, the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said the Himalayan glaciers are very likely to disappear within three decades if the present melting rate continues. But a statement from the panel now says there is not enough scientific evidence to back up those claim.
The warning in the report "refers to poorly substantiated estimates of rate of recession and date for the disappearance of Himalayan glaciers," the IPCC said. "In drafting the paragraph in question, the clear and well-established standards of evidence, required by the IPCC procedures, were not applied properly."
Well, there we go. It didn’t take long for the liberals to start blaming the bugaboo of the progressives, racism! Ignore the fact that a large number of Dems voted for Brown that also voted for Obama. Olbermann is so crazy.
Olbermann floated his despicable theory to Howard Fineman: "the Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens with Scott Brown tonight whether he wins or comes close is a repudiation of Obama policies. And surely one of Obama’s policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is it’s OK to have this sea-change in American history—to have an African-American president. Is this vote to any degree just another euphemism the way ‘states rights’ was in the ’60s?"
Maybe we can find someone who is actually willing to even SAY “Islam” or “Jihadist”.
The Obama administration’s choice to lead the Transportation Security Administration is withdrawing his nomination.
In a statement, Erroll Southers says he is withdrawing because his nomination has become a lightning rod for those with a political agenda.
Obama tapped Southers to lead the TSA in September but his confirmation has been blocked by Republican Sen. Jim DeMint, who says he’s worried Southers would allow TSA employees to join a labor union.
The White House says the president has accepted Southers’ decision with great sadness.
