Is There Nothing They Will Not Do … Democrats Tried to Obtain Medical Info on Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) & His Family

Is there no level that Democrats will not sink to in order to gain information on some one they are targeting in an attempt to win an election? The Boston Herald reports that the DCCC has requested information about Senator Scott Brown and his family from Brown’s insurance company. UNREAL. For what good reason would any one want this information on the Senator and his family?

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown — an upstart Blue State Republican in the cross hairs of national Democrats — is lashing out at the party’s opposition researchers, accusing them of prying into his family’s private health insurance records, and demanding that they stop fighting dirty.

“It seems in bad form. Obviously, when it comes to information about my wife and daughters, it crosses the line. I find it offensive and so do they,” Brown told the Herald yesterday

“They (Democrats) don’t have any business muddling in the private health records of my family,” said Brown, adding that his family is “disturbed” by the intrusion.

Officials from the Group Insurance Commission, the state’s health insurance provider, notified Brown on Tuesday that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee asked them “to provide insurance information,” according to a copy of the GIC letter obtained by the Herald.

 The Democrats are out to slime Brown in whatever way they can try and win back the US Senate seat in Massachusetts. However, this ugly type of mudslinging politics might just backfire in the Bay State. As opined by the Lonely Conservative, the DCCC spokesperson accused Scott Brown of trying to score political points, because he dare object  to this intrusion into his privacy. Even when caught in a hideous act, they try and spin their way through it. Do these people have no shame?

Democrats in their delusional and panicked state think that Republican Scott Brown is vulnerable. Really? Maybe they might want to read the polling numbers of Brown in Massacusettes and comprehend that he is the most popular politician in MASS.

In fact, he’s the most popular politician in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, with an approval rating of 73 percent.  To top it all off, his “re-elect” score is comfortably above 50 percent, which is unusual for a Republican in an overwhelmingly Democratic state.

As for political benefits, the topic makes most people squeamish, which can backfire in politics, as it does at dinner parties when I talk about my work.

US Senate is in Play: The Top 10 Senate Races that Democrats Need to Worry About in 2010

Democrats could lose the US Senate, once unthought of, now a real possibility.

Just curious, when Scott Brown won in Massachusetts in the special election for the seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy, why didn’t all people think at that point that it was possible for Republicans to win in any state? The Massachusetts special Senate election represented the shot heard round the world and was the symbol that all things were possible. Think  Brown’s victory was a one hit wonder? Not at all,Brown is presently out-polling President Barack Obama and Senator John Kerry (MA-D)


Remember when the political pundits only said that the US House of Representatives was in play and Democrats feared that it could flip and control go back to the Republicans? Less than 60 days from the 2010 midterm elections and now many think that Democrats could lose the US Senate as well.

A terrible economy, near 10% unemployment, no jobs really being created, an unpopular $787 billion stimulus package, and unpopular Obamacare law passed,  an unpopular President Obama and a complicit Democrat party that passed numerous laws against the will of the people and the unpopular suing of a state on illegal immigration has all lead to the most improbable outcome … a complete sweep of Senate races and control by the GOP. The following are the top 10 US Senate races that Democrats need to worry about.

1. North Dakota (1): Get ready to ho-down with Republican John Hoeven (R); yes, we’re running out of Hoeven puns. Ranking: Solid GOP. [This race is over  Hoeven is up by over 40% in the polls]
2. Delaware (2): Does Mike Castle (R) survive his primary against Christine O’Donnell (R)? The GOP’s likelihood of winning this seat depends on it. Ranking (with Castle as nominee): Probable GOP.[This race is up in the air as who knows who will win the GOP primary? Castle is ahead in polls against the Democrat in a general election; however, he is a RINO at best. Can O'Donnell win the GOP primary, after all she is the real Republican in the race? If she does, can she wil the general election in a blue state?]
3. Arkansas (3): Bill Clinton campaigned this week for incumbent Blanche Lincoln (D), but it’s unlikely to change the dynamics of her race against John Boozman (R). Ranking: Probable GOP. [Probably GOP? Barack Obama has a better chance of providing tax cuts to the rich than Lincoln does of winning, she is down by 38% in the polls.]
4. Indiana (4): Speaking of being able to change the dynamics, Brad Ellsworth (D) hasn’t caught up to
Dan Coats (R). Ranking: Probable GOP. [Republican Coats up by 21% over the Democrat, this seat is lost by the Democrats.]
5. Pennsylvania (5): After being dormant for the last couple of months, Joe Sestak’s (D) campaign has become more active, with Biden and Obama set to stump for him later this month. Right now, though, this is Pat Toomey’s (R) race to lose. Ranking: Lean GOP. [Not only is GOP candidate Toomey ahead in the polls, the Republican Gov. candidate Corbett is far outpacing the Democrats. It will be a clean sweep in the Keystone state.]
6. Illinois (7): The Alexi Giannoulias (D)-vs.-Mark Kirk (R) contest remains what we consider to be the truest 50%-50% race out there. Ranking: Toss Up. [Democrat candidate only gets 37% in the polling, hard to imagine that translates to a victory.]
7. Colorado(unranked): The Ken Buck (R)-vs.-Michael Bennet (D) race is close to being a pure 50%-50% race, too. Which force will be greater — the overall political environment, or the GOP’s woes in the state? Ranking: Toss Up. [The Democrat incumbent is only polling at 44%, far below the 50% usually considered needed.]
8. Nevada (8): Now we enter the contests where Democrats might have an advantage by a fingernail. But the Harry Reid (D)-vs.Sharron Angle (R) race is going to close. Fasten your seatbelts. Ranking: Toss Up. [Its a dead heat in Nevada; however, Harry Reid, the Democrat Senate Majority leader is polling below 50%. Do Nevada voters really want more in the same? Even though Reid wants to distance himself from Obama and the economy, Reid has been in lock step with Obama and is completely responsible.]
9. Wisconsin (unranked): As was the case in ‘98, Russ Feingold (D) is fighting for his political life. What makes this time more difficult for him is that this political environment is much different than ’98 was. Ranking: Toss Up. [Incumbent Democrat Feingold trails GOP candidate Johnson in the polls. The fact that a dark blue state like Wisconsin is even being discussed tells us just how much trouble the Democrats are in.]
10. Washington (10):If Republicans indeed catch a wave on Election Night, we’ll be pulling an all-nighter watching the returns from the Patty Murray (D)-vs.-Dino Rossi (R) race. Ranking: Toss Up. [Republican Dina Rossi has a 2% point lead in the post recent Rasmussen poll and incumbent Democrat Patti Murray is polling below 50%. If Washington goes, one would think that Democrats would lose control of the Senate.]

But wait, there is more an an honorable mention of even more states that Democrats have to worry about. Check out California and West Virginia, both also in fear of being lost by Democrats. As stated by First Read, it is quite amazing that Republicans have a better chance of flipping West Virginia’s Senate seat than Democrats have in picking up the one in Ohio.

Check out the Scared Monkeys analysis made in February 2010, seems like some were ahead of the MSM curve. At that point, even before many primaries were complete, we were stating a +9 for Republicans.

Mother Jones  importantly notes that there is not one Democrat gain on this list. This is literally unheard of. So many US Senate races and it is only the Democrats that are in fear of having seats flipped on November 2, 2010.

If Democrats think they have an issue in 2010 … 2012 does not appear to be much better. Check out some of the vulnerable races in 2012:

?WV – Robert Byrd is nor longer the Senator, this will be the vote for the 6 year term for whoever wins the 2010 special election.
?ND – Kent Conrad could be the victim of the anti-Obama vote.
?NE – Ben Nelson and the corn husker kickback. Payback will be on the minds of many and he just might be the Blanche Lincoln of 2012.
?FL – Bill Nelson and his preferential Obamacare deal
?VA – Jim Webb in newly “Red” Virginia like what swept Bob McDonnell into office.
?OH – Sherrod Brown in a swing state like Ohio in a Presidential year. How much of the vote against Obama will be a vote against Brown?
?PA – Robert Casey in a swing states that could trend against the incumbent President.
?NY – If Kirsten Gillibrand wins in 2010, will there be a strong GOP candidate like Rudy unseat her in 2012?

Democrat Strategy in Massachusetts for 2012 … Ask Vickie Kennedy Run for Teddy’s Old US Senate Seat, Again

Talk about the Democrats having a lack of options to run for the US Senate seat in Massachusetts in 2012.

After the death of Teddy Kennedy, Democrats wanted his widow Vickie Kennedy to run for the seat against upstart Repub;ican Scott Brown. She said no and the rest was 2009 GOP history as Scott Brown won the US Senate seat in MA in a special election.

So what is the Democrats answer in 2012 for the seat formerly held by Ted Kennedy, ask his widow again to run again. It is hard to beleive that a state so predominately dominated by Democrats in the US House, Senate and State House has no political answers other that trtting out the widow of the late Edward Kennedy.

Nearly one year after Edward M. Kennedy’s death, prominent Democrats in Washington and Massachusetts are promoting his widow as the party’s best shot at winning back the Senate seat he held for nearly five decades.

Republican Senator Scott Brown Out-polls Democrats John Kerry & Barack Obama in Boston Globe Poll

Here is the “Hope & Change” that America is really looking for … Is Scott Brown popular in the Bay state … YES HE IS!!!

In a Boston Globe poll, the newly elected junior US Senator Scott Brown from Massachusetts has out-polled longtime Democrat Senator John Kerry and has become the most popular officeholder in Massachusetts. So much for Democrats efforts to spin Scott Brown as a flash in the pan and inconsequential. The Scott Brown phenomenon continues even after he shocked the world and defeated Obama backed Democrat Martha Coakley for the US Seante seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy.

Republican Scott Brown is not only out-polling John Kerry, but President Barack Obama as well. Keep in mind, Brown is outpolling Barack Obama in Blue state like Massachusetts that voted for Obama in the 2008 Presidential election 62% to 36%.

After less than five months in Washington, Brown outpolls such Democratic stalwarts as President Obama and US Senator John F. Kerry in popularity, the poll indicates. He gets high marks not only from Republicans, but even a plurality of Democrats views him favorably.

The support for Brown, whose victory became a symbol of voter anger, is consistent with widespread sentiment that incumbents in Massachusetts and Washington “need to be replaced with a new crop of leaders.’’ That statement was supported by 50 percent of those polled, while 28 percent said they trust the incumbents.

Readers need to keep in mind that Massachusetts is as liberal a state as there is in the US and Brown still remains popular due to his message.

Asked their opinion of Brown, 55 percent of those polled said they view him favorably, only 18 percent unfavorably. His rating among Republicans is 79 percent favorable, 3 percent unfavorable. And 55 percent of independents — the majority of the state’s voters — say they like him, while only 11 percent have an unfavorable opinion. The poll has a margin of error of 4.2 percent.

In contrast, Kerry was viewed favorably by 52 percent of those polled and unfavorably by 37 percent of the respondents. And in a sign that Obama is a polarizing figure even in Massachusetts, 54 percent of the respondents view him favorably and 41 percent unfavorably, according to the polling data

OUCH, Obama only polling 54% in Mass? The One and Democrats are in for some serious trouble in 2010 and 2012. How can Obama be struggling in a dark blue state like MA?  The One may just be … One and Done.

If Democrats thought that Scott Brown was a one hit wonder, would only be serving the remainder of Kennedy’s term and they would be taking the US Senate seat back anytime soon, they might want to rethink their thought process. Republican Scott Brown appers to be here to stay.

Delaware Senate Election 2010: Republican Castle 55%, Democrat Coons 32% … VP Bidens Former Seat all but Gone

Delaware Senate seat, all but lost for Democrats …

Once again Democrats and especially the Obama White House will appear to have major spinning to do the day after the 2010 midterm elections this November as VP Joe Biden’s former DE Senate seat is all but lost.

Republican candidate Mike Castle has a 55% to 32% lead over the Democrat challenger Chris Coons.

The U.S. Senate race in Delaware is virtually unchanged over the past two months, with Republican Mike Castle continuing to draw strong support from the state’s voters.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Delaware shows Castle picking up 55% support to Democrat Chris Coons’ 32%. Seven percent (7%) of the state’s voters prefer some other candidate, while another seven percent (7%) are undecided.

Like in most all races across the country this Fall, Democrats are struggling with the independent vote. Castle leads by a 4 to 1 margins with voter not affiliated to either major party. He also leads among both male and female voters.

What are the catastrophic losses that Democrats face in the Senate races? Democrats already lost Ted Kennedy’s former Senate seat in MA to Republican Scott Brown.  Democrats are trailing in Illinois with President Obama’s former Senate seat and Harry Reid, the Democrat Senate Majority leader is trailing badly in Nevada.

We the People will have an opportunity during this midterm election to send and loud and clear message to Obama, Democrats and Republicans.

The Day The Democrat Congress Stood Still … Republican Scott Brown Sworn In As US Senator from Massacusetts

It’s official … “The Scott Heard Around the World” or at least through the halls of the US Congress in Washington, DC. Scott Brown has been officially sworn in as a United States Senator for the state of Massachusetts.

Do you solmonly swear that you will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic …

As VP Joeseph Biden swore in Scott Brown yesterday and asked the above question in the oath, maybe the rest of the Senators, especially on the Democrat side of the aisle should have run those same words through their head and answered in the affirmative as well.

Not only did Scott Brown do the unthinkable in Massachusetts and win the late Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat, it appears that the Freshman Senator will also be getting Ted’s old office as well.

It’s the day that the Obama Administration stood still as their reign of ramming unpopular legislation down the throats of Americans has officially come to an end.

SNL Mocks Obama SOTU & Rips Coakley’s Loss to Brown in Mass Senate Election

Once again SNL took it upon themselves to mock President Barack Obama and his State of the Union speech. It was actually are pretty clever piece as SNL’s Obama would mock parts of the speech including reciting jobs available and then cut to actual footage from the SOTU.

If SNL is going to continue to mock Obama for his actions, he does not have a chance.

Fred Armisen as Obama further went on to shred Democrat Martha Coakley for losing the Massachusetts Senate race stating that she couldn’t beat Dick Cheney for mayor of Berkeley.”

“Our nominee Martha Coakley was the single most incompetent candidate ever to seek public office in this nation’s history,” said Armisen to thunderous applause.

“Martha Coakley, you are a disgrace,” he continued. “You couldn’t beat Dick Cheney for mayor of Berkeley”

However, Martha Coakley may have run a poor campaign and did some incompetent things; however, the dramatic shifts in the campaign occurred at the same time that back room dirty deals were made with Obamacare.

As The Corner states, the Scott Brown skit was pretty funny. Actually, YES IT WAS, albeit predictable. I guess, like Sarah Palin, the LEFT just considers Brown just another pretty face … that’s why he won. No matter, HE DID!

Obama’s Polling Headaches Continue, Gallup Has Job Approval at 47% Approve & Disapprove

What a week this has been for Barack Hussein Obama.

Barack Obama’s not so excellent adventure continues. As per the most recent Gallup Daily Presidential Job Approval poll, Obama has a 47% approval and disapproval rating. This is the first time that The One has had just as many people disapproving of his job as President as opposed to approving in the Gallup Poll. Less than one year ago in February 2009 Obama had a 69% – 13% approval-disapproval rating.

My what a difference a year, socialist policies, lack of leadership and a failed health care policy makes. On the foot heals of the astonishing win by Republican Scott Brown in Massachusetts and the “NO” to Obamacare stated by the People of the Bay State, 61% of voters nationwide now say Congress should drop health care and focus on the economy.

Missouri Senate 2010 Election: Roy Blunt (R) 49%, Robin Carnahan (D) 43%

The Missouri Senate race represents yet another political race that is turning toward the Republican in the wake of the recent Massachusetts Scott Brown victory. The pendulum is swinging  Republican in a big way.

In the most recent Rasmussen poll, Republican Roy Blount now leads Democrat Incumbent Robin Carnahan, 49% to 43%. Just last month Carnahan held a two point lead at 46% to 44%.  An 8% point shift in just one month. Can you say thank you Barack Obama and Obamacare.

Republican Roy Blunt now holds a six-point lead over Democrat Robin Carnahan in Missouri’s race for the U.S. Senate.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds Blunt ahead of Carnahan 49% to 43%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Could Missouri be the next Senate seat to fall for Democrats as it appears Independents are breaking for the Republican Blount.

Once again we see another state, the “Show Me” state, in direct opposition to Obamacare tanking for the Democrat Senator. Only 37% of Missouri voters favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, while 62% oppose it. That is very close, actually even worse, than the national average of support of Obamacare where 56% oppose while only 38% are in favor.

Where Obamacare crashes and burns and is never passed or is rammed through Congress in some sneaky and politically suicidal manner by Democrats, the point is moot. Democrats are going to have an impossible situation trying to separate themselves from Obamacare come the November midterm elections. They were for it every inch of the way and refused to listen to the will of the people.

The only thing that caused them to pause and get their attention was the “Shot heard Around the World in Massachusetts when Scot Brown did the impossible and won as a Republican in the Bay State and took Ted Kennedy’s former US Senate seat.  It was  the continuation of the political revolution of “We the People” as Scott Brown won “The People’s Seat.”
