Default bho keeps his distance from Mass. race

"Thats why what happens Tuesday in Massachusetts is so important." So the femstick hides.

coakley was up by 31% in November. Scott Brown is now leading several polls. A 35% swing in 2 months. http://www1.whdh.com/features/articles/hiller/BO133471/

And all that milktoast can do is hide. Fabulous leadership barry. Just fabulous.

Obama keeps his distance from Mass. race
Friday, January 15, 2010
By Joseph Curl

Coming off stinging election losses in Virginia and New Jersey -- not to mention Copenhagen, where he failed to win the 2018 Olympics for his hometown of Chicago -- President Obama is staying away from what could become another painful loss.

Even though the campaign of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has been making quiet entreaties, the president has no plans to visit her in the last week of the special election to fill the Senate seat once held by the late Edward M. Kennedy.

"It's not on our schedule to go to next week," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said matter-of-factly.

With Mrs. Coakley flagging in the polls and Republican Scott Brown closing fast -- one recent polls puts him 2 points ahead -- Mr. Obama has decided to keep his fingerprints off a race that would be an embarrassment for Democrats should they lose, given that Mr. Obama won the state in 2008 by a 27 point margin.

Mr. Obama last year lost a high-profile bid to bring the Olympics to his hometown, even after he flew to Copenhagen to make a personal pitch. That slight followed the gubernatorial losses last November in Virginia and New Jersey, where Mr. Obama campaigned hard for the Democrats only to see them defeated.

While the president is taking a hands-off approach to the Massachusetts race, he did send an e-mail to supporters this week urging them to support Mrs. Coakley.

"We all need Ted Kennedy's seat to be filled by a champion for change -- and Martha Coakley is that champion," he wrote in the message. "The stakes are high. Time is short," he added. "And your role is essential."

Mrs. Coakley told the Boston Herald on Wednesday that she hasn't heard from the White House, but that she would welcome any public support from Obama.

"I welcome his support, but we've got a lot of support here in Massachusetts [and] I think he's got a lot on his plate in Washington," she told the paper.

On Thursday, Mr. Obama cut a video for the Democrat. "Its clear now that the outcome of these and other fights will probably rest on one vote in the United States Senate, Mr. Obama said in the message. "Thats why what happens Tuesday in Massachusetts is so important."

But not quite important enough for a presidential visit.

Touched on this in another thread, but Obama's blessing is the kiss of death for Democrat candidates right now...and if they lose this Senate seat, the D's are going to get SLAUGHTERED in November. And I think Brown is ahead by 3 points right now.

Brown has also made it quite clear that he is NOT voting for the POS healthcare bill...

This is just spectacular! "Hey all you Catholics (that comprise much of the donkey base) You shouldn't work in ERs but vote for me anyway". You can't make this @#$% up.

Martha Coakley: Devout Catholics 'Probably shouldn't work in the emergency room'

By Kerry Picket on Jan. 14, 2010

How can a Massachusetts Senate candidate possibly offend 39 percent of voters in her state? If it's Democrat Attorney General Martha Coakley, she would tell devout Catholics not to bother working in an emergency room (H/T Jim Hoft - Big Government). In the audio clip below, Ms. Coakley chokes on a question from radio host Ken Pittman referring to the conscience clause. Under the conscience clause, workers in health-care environments ranging from doctors to maintenance men can refuse to offer services, information, or advice to patients on issues like contraception, blood transfusions, etc..if the workers are morally against it. Here is how Ms. Coakley handled the matter. (audio and transcript below):

Ken Pittman: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin. ah you don’t want to do that.

Martha Coakley: No we have a seperation of church and state Ken, lets be clear.

Ken Pittman: In the emergency room you still have your religious freedom.

Martha Coakley: (……uh, eh…um..) The law says that people are allowed to have that. You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.

:toofunny :

Quit it Martha, yer killing me!!

And he would. He's using the "butt out" rhetoric to bait bho, knowing full well the femstick won't show. Everybody knows bho would further damage coakley, and that bho doesn't want to be associated with another devistating defeat, so he won't show. But Brown's baiting makes an issue of bho's cowardice. Brown wins that one either way.

bho is telling his base that he's poison and that coakley is going to lose. That'll get em energized.

Then we have the genius chucky... http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010...ndidate-brown/ ... calling Brown a "far right tea bagger". and I don't think the double entendre was lost on anyone.

Brilliant donkeys. Just brilliant!

I didn't realize birth control pills came from emergency rooms.

Coakley is woefully uninformed yet the libs want to talk about Palin.
