Presidential visit two days before the election...Does the Obama visit put Coakley over the top in the MA Senate race?

Sure, his magic worked for the Chicago Olympic bid didn't it?

Obama is still well liked in the State. But from what I have been reading the last couple days, Coakley and Obamacare are not popular among the masses.

Since Obama's disapproval rating has become bigger than his approval rating I'm not sure he helps.

I think the President's visit will cause Coakley to lose, but not because of his unpopularity.

A Presidential visit like this is a huge undertaking. I've seen last minute Presidential stumping before, and it sucks the life out of the campaign. Everything in the Coakley campaign and MA Dem party has switched from working the ground game to preparing for the presidential visit. This kind of thing is very disruptive in a campaign and it will be very difficult to get refocused on Monday.

I hope you're right.

He is coming there on the Sunday of a 3-day weekend. Not the best day to stump for politics.

Here are some comments from boston.com on Coakley..

From the article "Coakley hopes for historic win in Kennedy Seat bid.."

Martha is Hysteric if she expects a historic win. SGM SAY GOOD-BYE MARTHA!

Yeah... it's *Kennedy's seat*. Even Vicki, who just did a new television spot begging people to vote for Croakley, said it's not the Kennedy's seat. Although she was just stealing the line, that Scott Brown used to dope slap the idiot moderator, during the last debate. That point was made; and it was made for Scott Brown.

Vote Scott Brown to take back the country, from special interests and lobbyists. DOWN GOES COAKLEY! DOWN GOES COAKLEY!

"Coakley hopes for 'historic' win"? Is that a joke? What exactly would be historic about yet another Democrat rubber stamp automaton candidate winning in Massachusetts?

What WILL be historic is when we elect Scott Brown to the senate and put an end to the unprecedented spending in Washington. The current Democrat controlled White House and Congress have spent more money than all the previous administrations combined.

Vote Scott Brown, the voice of reason.

The paper mixed up the headline. This HISTORIC VICTORY will belong to Scott Brown. In politics and governance, history will remember the diversity of IDEAS. The Globe's narrow use of gender politics attempts to divide our voters for crass ends. Vote IDEAS. Vote TRUE DIVERSITY for our Commonwealth.

Save our country from the Obama/Coakley machine. Vote Scott Brown.

The follow up article of "Brown hopes for historic win of peoples' seat" must be coming in the Boston Globe tomorrow

I love how this article says Croakley has been "methodically crafting a low-key campaign to fill the late Edward Kennedy's U.S. Senate seat the way the seasoned prosecutor would build a case in court."

Hmmm... You mean like the case she "crafted" against the child molesting police officer, that sexually assaulted a 23 month-old baby with a hot curling iron?

The only thing she has methodically crafted is her own defeat, in next Tuesday's election. VOTE SCOTT BROWN TO SAVE US FROM THE RUNAWAY SPENDING OF OBAMACARE AND STIMULUS PACKAGES THAT DON"T WORK.

And the Globe CONTINUES to run it's breathless, over the top puff pieces to try and get Coakley elected.

They must get material straight from Coakley herself.

What a disgrace this paper has become.

A Historic win will be if BROWN wins - TOOLS !!

When Obama was inaugurated a year ago this week, he was hailed by his supporters as a political messiah who would transform American politics, ushering in a new era of hope and goodwill. Never had a new administration been greeted with such rapturous enthusiasm. “Obama’s standing above the country, above the world,’’ Newsweek editor Evan Thomas exulted. “He’s sort of God.’’

What Obama and his party delivered, however, was not uplifting and transparent bipartisanship.

It was trillion-dollar increases in government spending. It was party-line votes on 2,000-page bills. It was “cash-for-cloture’’ backroom deals. It was tone-deaf boasts about millions of jobs “created or saved,’’ even as unemployment soared into double digits.

Above all, it was the attempt to force through a radical health-care overhaul that would drive up the cost of medical insurance, slash Medicare by half a trillion dollars, and subject one-seventh of the US economy to government micromanagement.

The more insistently Democrats in Washington have pushed ObamaCare, the more unpopular it has become - and the more the president’s approval ratings have sunk. In a CNN poll released last week, 48 percent of respondents say Obama’s presidency has so far been a failure, while just 47 percent call it a success. The latest CBS News survey measures only 46 percent approval for Obama - his lowest rating to date. On his signature issue - health care - Obama has the support of only 36 percent of the public. Massachusetts residents are no exception: According to the new Suffolk poll, they oppose the health-care legislation by a ratio of 51 to 36.

A year ago, Americans were enchanted with their new president. Today they are suffering from severe buyer’s remorse. Massachusetts may be the bluest state, but voters here are fed up too.

It would be smart of the Pres to cancel his visit. If Coakley were to lose then it would be seen as another failed intervention by Barry. And you know that's what the conservative shows and headlines will scream. But you know he's not going to cancel. :shake:

Coakley will win. It's Mass. Come on.

This was all fun. But come on.

Didn't they say the same about New Jersey? The thing lost in all this is neither candidate is worth a shit and it will be seen as a Republican victory despite the party not doing anything.

I find it hard to believe that any democrat could actually lose an election in Mass. Maybe with the Kennedy era being ended they can get more in line with the mainstream of America and view politics in a less directed light.

The Kennedy family has had a death grip on that state and with the family all but gone from public office maybe it's going to be time when some kind of equilibrium can return to politics there.
