"The People's Seat:" The Rallying Cry of a Nation

As confetti fell from the ceiling at Scott Brown's campaign headquarters, murmurs of "the People's seat" could be heard from the crowd. Indeed, it was this saying that defined Senator-elect Brown's campaign.

Uttered as a rebuke to a question during a debate, "the People's seat" struck a cord with millions of Americans. From the shores of the Atlantic in Massachusetts, to the fields of Wisconsin, on to the forests of California, this phrase has reverberated.

But it is not an empty campaign slogan. It is not a "Yes We Can," in which a Presidential candidate promises to do whatever he wants, but with the people's vote. No, it is "the People's seat." When in office, Brown will do what the people want.

It is even more than that, though. It is a defining moment in the biggest upset in American political history. It is the people saying: "Do what we want, or you are gone." It is a wake up call to incumbent Democrats pushing corrupted health care. It is a call to the RINOs of these United States that it is a privilege to serve us, not a privilege for us to have them.

The People have realized that indeed every seat in politics belongs to us and only us. We make the decisions, the politicians follow.

And that is what Scott Brown has done. He has taught us this lesson and he has woken us up. Hopefully we will not go to sleep again.

OLDPUPPYMAX:

Lefty Gergen did Brown a tremendous favor with his typically left-wing "gotcha" question at the debate. His pathetic attempt to SHAME Brown by literally questioning his right to seek "Kennedy's seat" provided a true home run thanks to a very, very smart--and more importantly CORRECT-- answer.

Hopefully.

I wonder if anyone has tracked down when, exactly or just more-or-less, our elected officials went from being 'representatives' to 'leaders we must submit to or be labeled terrorists or with derogatory homosexual slurs' (no matter the party).

"When in office, Scott Brown will do what the people want."

I hope so, since polling shows that a majority of Brown voters think that Obama's healthcare proposals "don't go far enough" and that 80% of ALL Massachusetts voters wnat to see a public option.

Maybe that's why the President said today that debate on healthcare will not resume until Brown takes his seat. Maybe the President knows something we don't. Wouldn't that be a hoot?

Maybe, maybe not, but anything or nearly anything is better than coakley

What is a hoot is how close you mimic the DKos kiddies, their "poll" suggests the number to be 82 percent.

If you believe what you say is true than why do they have articles like this at Politico (which I assume you would agree is not a bastion of the conservative right)?

House Democrats watched the election results come in from Massachusetts with a sense of impending doom for their agenda -- and panic for their vulnerable freshmen.


"I feel sorry for them," Rep. Allen Boyd (D-Fla.) said of his most junior colleagues. "It's like they walked in and got hit upside the head with a big jackhammer."


Moderate Democrats have grown increasingly anxious over the past few months, watching nervously as Democratic incumbents in swing districts announced retirements, as one of their own switched parties, as Republicans scored some recruiting coups and as Democrats lost key gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey.

So please answer the following:

Why are democrats so anxious if healthcare is so popular?

Why do they feel a sense of impending doom for their agenda?

I mean if healthcare was as popular as you make out then they why all the negative feelings about the results of this election?

There's only one "poll" that Brown needs to worry about, and that's the one that gave him a 5 point victory yesterday, running on a strong anti-Obamacare platform.

Hoot it up.

Oyster:

Bruce, riiiight. Mass voters elected a Republican who was steadfastly against the healthcare bill, with or without the public option, because they want a public option.

Here ... pull the other one.

Bruce -

Only a complete idiot thinks that people really wanted Obamacare stopped because it didn't do enough. We have socialized medicine in Mass alrady and it is bankrupting the state. Nobody, but nobody wants to actually have to use Masscare because it SUCKS!

So you are alleging that Mass voters voted against Coakley because she was in favor of Obama's plan and they wanted his plan defeated because they think that Brown by promising to defeat said plan is actually promising to help Obama bring a BIGGER plan to fruition.

Damn. Get back on the meds. That is so far gone it makes Charlie Manson's ramblings in front of the parole board look sane.
