Scott Brown (Republican) takes Kennedy's senate seat in Massachusetts

Unbelievably, Republican Scott Brown has defeated Democrat Martha Coakley for recently deceased Edward Kennedy's US Senate seat. This is a kick in the balls for President Obama on the eve of his first year in office. It is blatantly clear that if a Republican can win much beloved Ted Kennedy's seat in super left Massachusetts that the public are clearly not happy with the was the Obama administration is panning out.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy held the seat for nearly half a century.

Democrats needed Coakley to win for a 60th vote to thwart Republican filibusters. Sen elect Brown will become the 41st Republican in the 100-member Senate, which could allow the Republicans to block the Democrats health care legislation and the rest of Obama's agenda.

If this was a referendum on the Democrats Health Care bill and the lack of fulfillment of President Obama's election promises, then I predict change in these upcoming midterm elections. The change will be towards the Republican Party and their more conservative views. Sen Harry Reid, Sen Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and President Obamabest listen to the voting public if they want to keep their jobs after their next election. This should be a clear and loud message to them.

Congratulations Senator Elect Brown.
