“You know they can try to pooh-pooh my election and try to minimize it and all that stuff,” Brown said.
Oh, “pooh-pooh.” I get it. Sorry — my mistake. 😉
Anyway, poor Scott has been reduced to mumbling barely coherent, vaguely paranoid sentence fragments in trying to explain what happened. From the same story:
“I get what they’re trying to do. But the bottom line is they are going to start to carve out folks who are disabled and have some very serious medical issues and say, ‘See the Republicans want to take this away.’ ”
What’s that about disabled people? Is this another “death panel” thing? Seriously, what is Brown on about here? I would honestly like to know.
But Scott still thinks he’s got it covered.
“They can try to, you know, twist and manipulate and, you know, destroy the message and destroy as much as they want but the bottom line is people are very angry.”
Problem is, that’s not really true. Actually, most people like the bill that was just signed into law. Now, the tea partiers, they are angry, since nobody likes to lose. But my guess is that President Obama’s ginormous win on health care will significantly improve his standing with the public, and will allow him to move forward on other items on his agenda. In politics, nothing succeeds like success, and Obama just scored a big one.
