Tuesday night, the GOP and the tea party movement will elect conservative Republican Scott Brown by four points over yet another out-of-touch, ignorant Democrat — Curt Schilling a Yankee fan? — to fill the Senate seat that has been in the hands of the Kennedy family since 1952.
Ironically, the next day, Jan. 20, is the first anniversary of Barack Obama’s inauguration.
So, one year to the day of the arrival in D.C. of “The One,” Obama effectively will become a lame duck president. His Obama Revolution will be finished. The Democratic stranglehold on D.C. power will be shattered. The November midterm elections will be a Democratic blood bath.
Obama’s first year has been a case study in misreading why an election was won (the economy, stupid!), followed by another misreading of the public mood (jobs, jobs, jobs!) and then using the “never waste a good crisis” thinking to try to install Far Left, European-style socialism through the White House political and economic agenda.
Tuesday’s election also will be the final nail in the healthcare coffin. With Brown’s victory, there will be 41 solid votes to filibuster the conference committee healthcare bill.
And with that, the eight months spent on healthcare reform will be revealed as an enormous waste of time and political capital, Obama looks inept, incompetent, and weak. His Sunday rescue trip to Boston will not rescue Democratic state Attorney General Martha Coakley. It merely will cement the notion that he is ineffective and weak, a politician with nothing but celebrity status.
The Boston trip will be like the Copenhagen Olympic trip: Obama will once again come home empty handed. His presidency will be forever weakened by his indiscriminate spending of White House political capital.
America is bouncing from one incompetent president — G.W. Bush — to another — Barack H. Obama.
How long can a great nation survive with the two parties producing such dunderheads?
We better get our act in gear in 2012. Or else.
