ABC Panel: Brown Just ‘Throw the Bums Out,’ Fret ObamaCare Not Pushed More ‘Vigorously’

irejectyourre128622493201557302 I am having to use this Mythbusters theme a lot lately.

With the exception of George Will, the panel on ABC’s This Week (hosted by Terry Moran) roundtable insisted Scott Brown’s Massachusetts Senate seat victory was less an anti-liberal or antri-Obama vote than simply a “pox on both your houses“and “throw the bums” out choice when Democrats happened to be in power. (On Face the Nation, Nancy Cordes described Brown as a “true Republican moderate” and dreamed he “could make being a moderate cool again.”)

Cokie Roberts and Sam Donaldson also contended people really want ObamaCare and so the White House, Donaldson asserted, should have pushed it more “vigorously” and he despaired that “Republicans were able the make the idea that being on a government health program is terrible. How absurd.”

ABC News veteran Roberts declared of Brown’s win: “I think it’s much more the process than the substance” as voters said “‘a pox on both your houses. You know, we don’t like any of you guys’” since “when you ask which party do you trust more with various issues, the Republicans do worse than the Democrats. So it’s not a Republican tide, but it is a ‘throw the bums out’ tide.”
