A CHANGE OF PLAN
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 3, 2010) — In a surprising last-minute development, various media outlets are reporting that Senator-elect Scott Brown (R) of Massachusetts will be sworn in as the junior senator from that state at 5:00 p.m. tomorrow, February 4, by Vice President Joseph Biden.
The original swearing-in ceremony had been expected on February 11. Brown defeated Democrat contender Martha Coakley in a special election on January 19, 2010, held to replace the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D), who had held the seat for almost five decades before his death in August 2009.

The Obama regime had all the power: the White House and a majority in the House and the Senate. Team Obama owns the liberal media. Because the media selected him, they have a vested interest in protecting his presidency. Obama also had the American people in his corner; youths considered him a rock star, blacks saw him as their Great Black Hope, and naive whites thought that casting their vote for a black guy would finally put an end to them being called racist.

In a January 20, 2010 editorial, the Editor in Chief of U.S. News & World Report, Mortimer Zuckerman, had this to say: “Obama’s ability to connect with voters is what launched him. But what has surprised me is how he has failed to connect with the voters since he’s been in office. He’s had so much overexposure. You have to be selective. He was doing five Sunday shows. How many press conferences? And now people stop listening to him… He’s lost his audience. He has not rallied public opinion. He has plunged in the polls more than any other public figure since we’ve been using polls. He’s done everything wrong. Well, not everything, but the major things… I don’t consider it a triumph. I consider it a disaster.” And that’s what his friends are saying about him.
