The Washington elite are still trying to wrap their head around why we, in Massachusetts, sent Scott Brown (R-MA) to Washington. No matter how hard they try they just can’t seem to wrap their arms around it.
First you had Robert Gibbs on Fox News Sunday trying, quite humorously, try to explain that the election wasn’t a repudiation of the Obama agenda. Earlier in the week the President himself stated that the same voter anger that elected him, elected Scott Brown. Now you’ve got foot-in-mouth Joe Biden saying the following to Democratic National Committee members:
Joe Biden said the message from the Massachusetts election is that people want the government to understand their problems.
That sentiment could not be further from the truth. The people of Massachusetts don’t want the Government to understand our problems. We want the government to get out of the way so we can solve the problems they have created.
The resounding message of last Tuesday evening was a people awakening and telling the ruling elite to “LEAVE US ALONE”. If the Democratic and Republican elites in Washington don’t get this, they miss the message at their own peril.
