Scott Brown Wins US Senate Seat in Massachusetts

Is Massachusetts Obama's Waterloo?

Scott Brown is the Republican Senator-elect from Massachusetts. On January 19, 2010, he defeated Democrat Martha Coakley with a 52% to 47% victory.

Barack Obama personally campaigned for the Democratic gubernatorial nominee in New Jersey and Virginia; the people rejected the uber-liberal agenda and both states went red; the folks followed suit in MA. Scott Brown took back the Peoples' Seat!

President Barack Obama ran to Massachusetts to campaign for Martha Coakley in a desperate effort to secure votes for the US Senate seat once occupied by Ted Kennedy. Obama's evangelical dialect on that campaign trail did not find enough choir members and Martha Coakley delivered her concession speech in light of a Scott Brown Victory.

Scott Brown said his campaign began with him, his truck, and a very few amount of dedicated volunteers; however, it ended with Air Force One making an emergency run to Logan. The crowd erupted in cheers.

When Scott Brown stepped up to the podium to deliver his Victory speech he was greeted with chants of "Gas up the truck, Gas up the truck!" That was in response to Obama's derisive comments regarding Brown campaigning around town in his GMC truck.

Brown acknowledged his honor of winning, but reminded us that the Senate seat does not belong to one person, not one political Party and he said it before and he said it again, "This is the Peoples Seat." Scott Brown stated he hopes Washington is paying attention because the independent voice in Massachusetts has spoken. Can you hear me now?

He recounted the times during the campaign trail when he shook hands with Americans. Party affiliation was not cared about it was simply a shared conviction that brought us all together. Brown continued saying one thing was very, very clear as he traveled throughout the state; the people did not want the trillion-dollar health care plan that is being forced upon the American people.

Scott Brown had the courage to acknowledge that the health care bill is not being debated openly or fairly, it is not in the interest of the state or the country and that we can do better. That bold claim was met with chants of, "Yes We Can, Yes We Can!"

Scott Brown also reminded us that the special election was held because we lost someone very dear to Massachusetts and to America. Ted Kennedy was a tireless worker and a big-hearted public servant and most of his lifetime he was a force like no other in the MA.

Scott Brown continued to exude class when the first call he made was to Vicki Kennedy and reminded her that her husband's name will always command the affection and respect from the people of Massachusetts and that she is thought of in the same manner.

The 60 Plus Association has an online petition demanding that Senator Brown is seated. The Association is alerting us that some Washington politicians are threatening to play political games to keep Senator Brown from voting on the health care bill. When the people speak, their voice should not be ignored.

Senator Ted Kennedy was seated one day after his special election on November 6, 1962. Senator Brown should be seated immediately. Now is not the time for politicians to play games and cut back room deals. Listen to the voters of Massachusetts and Seat Senator Brown.

To sign the petition visit here:

Brown will become the 41st Republican in the 100-member Senate, which could allow the GOP to block the president's health care legislation and the rest of Obama's agenda. Democrats needed Coakley to win for a 60th vote to thwart Republican filibusters.

The good people of Massachusetts told pollster after pollster that they wanted to send a message to Washington. My! My! That message has been received loud and clear:


Congratulations, Massachusetts!
