A poll states that Massachusetts voters voted against health care policies. when they elected Scott Brown yesterday.
What's so hard to understand about this? (ahem) Massachusetts HAS STATEWIDE HEALTH CARE. Health care is something they're not that concerned about because THEY HAVE IT. The braying about it fell on absolute deaf ears - especially those of independent voters.
The Dems who showed up for the primary put up a candidate who ultimately totally and thoroughly misread the room. It was a complete marketing meltdown. They ran (if they ran at all) on passing national health care. That was about it.
Her campaign team utterly forgot what Ted Kennedy was all about on health care anyway. He simply wanted for the rest of the country what Massachusetts had. These bozos turned it into a "We need the 60th vote" contest. As I said...there was no 60 votes to begin with. It was all on paper. It was never reality. And the bottom line in this election was Who Cares About 60 Votes?
Take the voters for granted and keep the blinders on. A recipe for disaster, and the Democrats perfected it.
