Changing Tide

Yesterday, Republican  Scott Brown was elected to fill the Senate seat long-held by Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy. 

That is quite a change.

This election should be recognized by democrats as  a sign that people are not comfortable with the direction that they are leading our country.  A distaste, and distrust, of the proposed health care reform; a sense of weakening security, a fragile economy and spiraling debt: this is not the change that was expected when President Obama took office a year ago today.

Perhaps democrats should rethink their strategy.  It’s not so much of a mandate anymore.
