Who will get Kennedy's seat?

The irony in the Massachusetts election is a seat that was occupied for nearly 50 years by Ted Kennedy, the "liberal lion" of the Senate who helped champion health care reform on Capitol Hill, could go to a Republican candidate who's vowing to stop President Obama's plan. CNN political analysts, Jennifer Donahue and John Avlon spoke with CNN's Kiran Chetry Tuesday.

    Good Morning guys,
    You see what fear does to people? They think that because President Obama hasn't created the millions of jobs needed to put people back to work, that it's his fault now. But, yet, CNN reported that Major banks pulled another billion dollars off the table to help small businesses create jobs. I do believe that was the seventh month in a row and the people of Massachusetts think it's President Obama's fault.

    Fear clouds the mind. Yet, if people would just go back a year when George W. Bush went on national television and begged to pass a stimulus bill; Where he said there would be a depression greater than the Great Depression if we didn't pass it. They would remember the fear in his eyes. He knew how bad things were going to get and how bad his administration screwed things up. Yet, people still want to blame President Obama. Amazing! isn't it?

    Now, the people of Massachusetts have health care so their not worried about the rest of the country, but they should. Cause any day now, events are going to transpire across this globe that is going to rock their world. Then they will really have something to fear.

    I swore an Oath that before the Republicans come back into power, the Son of God would. And I keep My promises.

    Many people think God is unjust, but, it is not He who is unjust. His righteousness is complete in the eyes of the Father. And, it is this righteousness that will save mankind from destroying himself.

    I understand fully that people are worried about their future. And they should be. But, they need to clear their thoughts and start believing that God, My Father keeps His promises.

    I was amused by the Independent voters interviewed by CNN this a.m. Two of the three said they do NOT want government health care "shoved down their throats".

    I hope that they will do the honorable thing and opt out on the MA health care plan & save those tax dollars that are being "wasted" on themselves.... HUH?!?
