Republican Remorse?

Hey, it’s not Republican Senator Scott Brown’s fault Obamacare passed.

While I was feeling optimistic after Brown won Ted Kennedy’s seat in Massachusetts, I knew he was pro-choice (though he says he opposes infanticide, known euphemistically as partial birth abortion), and that dampened my enthusiasm.

Regardless, I enjoyed reading stories about how worried Democrats were about passing the Obamacare bill, and I truly hoped Brown’s election signaled the end of socialized medicine talk in Congress.

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

From the Boston Herald‘s “Republicans feeling blue as Scott Brown win backfires”:

“Brown’s backers from the insurgent Tea Party movement want to know if they’ve been had.

“We start to wonder whether we helped a RINO (Republican in name only) get into office,” said Tea Party activist Jeffrey McQueen, who traveled from Michigan to campaign for Brown in the final days of the Jan. 19 special election that rocked the nation.

“If it wasn’t for the Tea Party movement, Scott Brown wouldn’t have gotten that seat. We expect to see a true conservative in there.”

In fact, Democrats now say Brown’s election as the so-called “41st vote” to block Obama’s health-care overhaul inspired them to seek procedural means to bypass GOP efforts to derail the bill.

“Scott Brown’s election actually delivered health-care reform, because we didn’t need the 60 votes to make it happen. He delivered a significant victory in that,” Walsh said.

Hopes definitely were high after Brown’s win, but optimism ebbs and flows. He’s one more Republican in the Senate, and that’s good enough for now. So gloat on, libs. I truly, sincerely, seriously hope November 2010 elections will be a blood bath. Violent imagery aside, what’s your take?
