Democrat Mass-Manipulation

leave a comment »

Massachusetts has been a hot bed of manipulation as of late.

In 2004, Ted Kennedy, for partisan reasons, orchestrated a change in the law to change the replacement process from a gubernatorial appointment to a special election.  At the time, John “Lurch” Kerry was running for President (with his three purple hearts) and Kennedy didn’t want the then-Governor Mitt Romney to exercise his power and appoint a Republican to the seat.  So, at the behest of the Swimmer of Chappaquiddick, the law was amended and Mitt Romney could not appoint a fill in senator to fill Lurch’s seat.  Kerry lost but at least the seat was safe, had Lurch pulled it off.

Last year, the Swimmer became gravely ill from brain cancer, and, seeing his own “MENE MENE TEKEL PERES” as he inched closer to the veil, prompted the legislature to change the rule back to a gubernatorial appointment, since the office is now occupied by a Democrat – at least temporarily until the special election happened.  This would prevent the Dems from losing their 60-vote bloc and the subsequent derailing of the health debate.

The thing is, the legacy of Ted Kennedy here is irrelevant.  With all due respect, the man is dead and if he wasn’t saved by the blood of Christ, he’s in hell, burning.  Meanwhile, what is important is not whether the folks In Massachusetts preserve Kennedy’s wish to see the Health Deform bill go through, but to do what the people in Massachusetts want.  But there seems to be this overwhelming push about what Kennedy “would have wanted”.  I say, “so what?”.  Let the people decide.

But the Democrats don’t care so much about what the people say.  As we know, this health debate is all about pushing a piece-of-junk pile of horse dung through and onto the American people.  Despite the majority of Americans that don’t want this bill, the Dems are willing to shovel it onto us anyway.

So with the special election coming up, there’s talk that the GOP candidate may just pull this off and take the seat back to the right side of the aisle.  This would put a hex on the entire debate, since Scott Brown has already pledged to fight the bill if he is able to do so.  This is a huge threat to Democrats as his one vote could cause the debate to come apart.

To prevent that from happening, the Dems are willing to stall Brown’s swearing-in appointment until long after the State of the Union address, where Obama will be able to tout this as a victory for Americans (actually, it’s just for Progressives – Americans lose big if this passes).

What’s funny is that the Dems couldn’t get Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-Lowell) to the US House fast enough.  Two days after the special election, Tsongas was sworn in my Pelosi in order to help overthrow President Bush’s veto of expansion of the SCHIP program, back in October 2007.

But now, the Democrats are willing to hold up the senatorial swear-in of Scott Brown until after the Health Deform is done and passed, to prevent the debate from getting derailed if they lose their 60-vote filibuster-proof majority.  I sure as heck can guarantee you, if Martha Coakley wins the election, they will whisk her off to Washington, tout de suite and put her on the party line.

What does this mean?  Well it means that the Democrats care very little about the will of the people of Massachusetts, so long as it achieves their objectives.  They follow the drumbeat of the Democrat machine, pushed by the very liberal progressive agenda.  Massachusetts has already shown that the people don’t want the bill, but that won’t stop John “Lurch” Kerry from voting for it. 

I leave you with this very poignant quote from Bob Hope.
