Massachusetts Post Mortem

A lot has been written about how the Democrat establishment in Washington is publicly blaming Coakley, and how horrible her campaign was.  But that’s not the primary reason she lost.  This article, an opinion piece about the president, is:

I’m very disappointed. We endorsed him. I voted for him. I supported him publicly and privately.

I hope there are changes. I think he’s already laid in huge problems for the country. The fiscal program was a disaster. You have to get the money as quickly as possible into the economy. They didn’t do that. By end of the first year, only one-third of the money was spent. Why is that?

He should have jammed a stimulus plan into Congress and said, “This is it. No changes. Don’t give me that bullshit. We have a national emergency.” Instead they turned it over to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi who can run circles around him.

It’s very sad. It’s really sad.

He’s improved America’s image in the world. He absolutely did. But you have to translate that into something. Let me tell you what a major leader said to me recently. “We are convinced,” he said, “that he is not strong enough to confront his enemy. We are concerned,” he said “that he is not strong to support his friends.”

Read the whole article, perfectly titled He’s Done Everything Wrong.

And as far as the blame-game of pinning it all on “Marcia” Coakley … that may be what’s going on publicly.  But I can tell you this.  Moderate Democrats in House and Senate aren’t worried about how bad her campaign was run.  They’re worried about the things written in the opinion piece above.
