Scott Brown:Senator Elect Massachusetts
Instead, in an amazing show of how arrogant and out of touch the leadership is, my Congressman, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) has an unbelievable quote. According to The Hill, Hoyer is quoted as saying that "I think what the public is angry about is they see, first of all, an opposition for opposition's sake."
Are you fucking kidding me??!! Massachusetts, a state where Democrats have a 3-1 edge in registered voters and has not had a Republican Senator since 1972 has elected a man who will break the Democrats fillibuster proof margin in the Senate. This will make it harder for the Democrats to further their far left agenda and Hoyer actually can make a statement like that with a straight face?
So now we have a Republican win a Senate race in a heavily Democrat state like Massachusetts. This comes after a Republican won the gubernatorial race in New Jersey, another heavily Democrat state, and a landslide Republican gubernatorial win in Virginia. Somehow the Dems don't seem to get that the people are angry. It will be interesting to see what types of shenanigans that the Democrat leadership will come up with now to force through an agenda that the people don't want.
