Change Comes in Massachusetts

The election today of Scott Brown dooms the health care changes that President Obama has been focusing on since he first took the oath of office. It was probably doomed anyway. It is hard to imagine how having sixty percent margins in both the House and Senate doesn't translate into a new health care law, but Obama has pulled off a miracle. He is going to get nothing. Even overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress was not enough for Obama to succeed. One wonders how he will do after this coming November.

Obama may already be a lame duck.

The good news in all of this is that the "war on business" by the Obama Administration may not be winnable. Just possibly, the American economy will be given a chance to recover in spite of the the onslaught by the Adminstration for the past twelve months to take over and/or destory American business. If the Obama agenda can be stopped, the American economy has a real chance to heal itself.
