ACLJ: Delay in seating Brown “outrageous”

by D. Bennett

Jay Sekulow, via his blog on the American Center for Law and Justice’s website, posts that the fact that Scott Brown (R-MA) has yet to be seated by the U.S. Senate represents an “unacceptable delay tactic on the part of the Senate leadership.”

“There’s absolutely no reason to wait to seat Senator-elect Brown and with each passing day he is prevented from participating in the legislative process,” Sekulow writes. ” This delay tactic…show that it’s business as usual in Washington – ignoring the will of Massachusetts voters and moving forward with a disturbing health care plan that America simply does not want.”

Despite the fact that the election results have not yet been officially certified, Sekulow argues that there is precedent which would allow Brown to be seated immediately.

During a recent radio program Sen. Arlen Specter was unable to get a word in while his colleague Rep. Michelle Bachmann and reportedly told her to “act like a lady.” The AFA wonders if Specter has ever said anything similar to a male colleague.

The AFA reports that Pelosi feels that the House does not have the votes necessary to pass the Senate version of health care reform and they will have to go back to the drawing board.  The AFA responds, “Good riddance.”

Elijah Friedeman transcribes Scott Brown’s response when asked if he had considered running for President. While Brown’s answer was very well measured, it did not rule out the possibility.

Tasha Easterling notes that Glenn Beck is criticizing Scott Brown for some offhand comments he made about his daughters, mentioning that they were ‘on the market’. Beck compared that behavior to that of disgraced Representative Gary Condit.

Friedeman also mentions recent comments made by Keith Olbermann when he insinuated that Massachusetts voters are racist because they voted against the policies of the Obama administration.

Finally, Jerry Richardson goes on a long discourse using biblical passages to repudiate the Obama administration, believing him to be arrogant and calling him a ‘fool’.

ACLJ: Notes on the Mass. election and a comment on Erroll Southers

by D. Bennett

The American Center for Law and Justice posted several comments on the Massachusetts special election for U.S. Senator, including:

– Is the election of Scott Brown (R-MA) a referendum on President Obama’s ambitious health care agenda?

– The outcome of the election “commands national attention.”

– The Democrat-controlled Senate should move to seat Scott Brown as soon as possible, while avoiding any vote on health care reform until Brown is seated as a U.S. senator.

The ACLJ also noted that Erroll Southers, the nominee for the head of the Transportation Security Administration, has withdrawn his name from consideration due to controversy surrounding his nomination. The ACLJ called his withdrawal a “critical victory.”

Liberty Counsel: Mass. election a “shot heard ’round the world”

by D. Bennett

The Liberty Counsel writes that the results of the Massachusetts special election for the U.S. Senate, in which Scott Brown defeated Martha Coakley, was the start of a “new revolution in America.”

“President Barack Obama misread his election victory to be a referendum on radical liberalism. It was not,” the Counsel writes. “The radical policies of Obama, Reid and Pelosi have been rejected. The tax and spend, big government, anti-life agenda has been pushed back.”

The Counsel also argues that the election of Brown, a Republican, to the Senate has “derailed ObamaCare.”

“How ironic it is,” the Counsel writes, “that the person who replaced Ted Kennedy could be the deciding vote that kills government healthcare.”

The Counsel also notes that in addition to opposing the policies of  “radical liberalism,” people should also pray for liberal leaders via the Adopt-a-Liberal program.
