Lady Libertas watched in amazement and delight the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts on Tuesday night. Contrary to all the deflection being thrown out by Democrats, Scott Brown’s victory was a referendum on Year One of Obama. The American people are weary – overtaxed, overburdened, and underemployed. We have been bombarded with bailouts, stimulus, and spending to the trillionth degree, not to mention the negative rhetoric that comes from the White House about anyone who disagrees with their agenda.

Apparently, Massachusetts was just as weary as the rest of the USA and voted to send Scott Brown to DC. The fallout has been fascinating to Lady Libertas.

In the true colors of bullies and cowards looking to save themselves, we are now hearing “bipartisanship” as the new buzz word on the Hill. When the Democrats had the majority, Republicans were not invited to the table. In fact, the “table” was non-existent. President Obama made his feelings very clear last August: “I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking.”

At the time of that statement, Lady Libertas was puzzled since the Democrats have had a Congressional majority since 2006. Apparently, Obama forgot that fact and the fact that, indeed, HE was part of the people who created the mess. Even as late as Sunday, Obama was stumping for Coakley and mocking pickup trucks and Scott’s “slick” ads.

The song has certainly changed. Lady Libertas would like to suggest “The Boulevard of Broken Dreams” for Obama who has made healthcare the key issue of his Presidency. Obama has been encouraging Democrats to get it done, no matter how many payoffs and backroom deals required, but he changed his tune on Wednesday in an interview with George Stephanopoulos.

The new song from President Obama? Sounds like “You’ve Got a Friend”: “Here’s one thing I know and I just want to make sure that this is off the table: The Senate certainly shouldn’t try to jam anything through until Scott Brown is seated,” the president said. “People in Massachusetts spoke. He’s got to be part of that process.”

Lady Libertas would not be surprised to see Obama crusing DC in his new pickup truck. Let’s just hope that he buys American.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also has had a rethink, it appears. Could be Harry Reid has final seen his plummeting popularity and approval ratings. This is what he said Wednesday: “First of all, we’re not going to rush into anything,” he said. “We’re going to wait until the new senator arrives until we do anything more on health care.”

This tune change is not just coming from Obama and Reid.

In a jaw dropping statement, Barney Frank came out after Scott Brown won and said: “I think the measure that would have passed, that is, some compromise between the House and Senate bill, which I would have voted for, although there were some aspects of both bills I would have liked to see change, I think that’s dead.”

Barney has backed off of that a bit but we are still seeing a very subdued Barney “we will get single payer healthcare” Frank in his statement on Wednesday: “I have realized that my statement last night was more pessimistic than is called for, although I still regard the fact that the Republicans have now elected a 41st Senator as a serious obstacle to getting health care done.”

And John Kerry, Scott Brown’s fellow Senator from Massachusetts? John Kerry has to have known that his beloved Cap & Trade fiasco was going to meet with as much resistance as healthcare. He has already backed off the “this is not how democracy works in Massachusetts” after the people of Massachusetts showed John Kerry and the rest of the tax and spend liberals precisely how democracy works in Massachusetts.

Today, as Scott Brown arrives in DC, Kerry is already setting up the reach across the aisle regarding Cap & Trade: “There’s overwhelming public support and this can be a bipartisan issue,” Kerry added. “It doesn’t have to be polarized.”

Bipartisan issues indeed. I don’t believe we saw any bipartisan issues or overtures in 2009. Lady Libertas firmly believes that if Coakley had won, we would be reading crowing headlines of how the Democrats were going to joyfully jam healthcare right down the throats of the American people.

But this is 2010 and Scott Brown is the 41st Senator; a whole new world has dawned regarding the bully politics of the Democratic majority. Perhaps now we will see some of the transparency and biaprtisanship that Obama promised in his campaign and failed to deliver on in 2009.

November 2010 is fast approaching. Two governorships have flip flopped to the GOP and now a Senate seat. The Tea Party movement is fired up and organized. The far left is as disgusted with the Democrats as the Conservatives are. Any seat that is up for grabs in November 2010 is now even more uncertain with the current mood of the country.

THIS is Democracy in Action, folks, and Lady Libertas’ song for 2010 is: “Let’s Get the Party Started.”
