(AP Photo/Steven Senne)Democratic candidate and Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley concedes after losing a special election held to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy on Tuesday in Boston.
The president got creamed in Massachusetts. No amount of blaming this disastrous outcome on the weaknesses of the local Democratic candidate or her Republican opponent’s strengths can gainsay that fact. Obama’s opportunistic search for win-win solutions to our health care concerns and our larger economic problems is leading to a lose-lose outcome for the president and the country.Howie P.S.: As I have said before, Scheer's been right on almost everything since he came to my university in 1965 to object to the Vietnam war.
To salvage his presidency, Obama must reverse course and make solving the “toxic political problem” of Wall Street greed that’s bankrupting the country his highest priority.
