Scott Brown and the Health Care Plan
This picture is from a different event, but for me the look on President Obama's face says it all. With Scott Brown elected as a Senator and letting everyone and his brother know that he will vote no on the Health Plan it looks like another chance for this country to offer health care to all its people will go down the tube again.
And this from a state that offers a health care plan for all it's residents.
I don't see this completely as the voice of the people rejecting the President and his plans, there was a lot more going on in that vote. The Democrat thought it was a lock and did very little campaigning until it was too late. And I think the Republican machine is a lot better at scaring people into believing that the President is not doing his job. It's no longer a fight over right or wrong, it's become just a fight over who wins. (And I say that for both sides, the Republicans and the Democrats.) The GOP will say or do just about anything to convince the people they are right, even if they know they aren't.
It really worries me about the mid term elections coming up. I would hate to see the GOP voted in for a fear factor.
And even though whenever we see an election locally the media always tries to give it a larger meaning, someone once said "all politics are local" so we should all remember that.
