Note to Menino:

Tenses matter.

Past tense.

He’s already failed.

If a bus driver decides to kill himself by driving himself and his passengers off a cliff I want him to fail. Similarly I want Obama to fail.

I want him to fail! His policies have wrecked this country. We can't afford more of the same.

Sounds to me like they are resigned to defeat.

The fact that the Boston mayor has to say this is pretty incredible in itself.

They are throwing everything at this guy. The internal polls must show the bottom dropping out for Coakley. It’s beginning to have a stench desperation.

LOL! Fail at stealing more of their money. The old saying that a liberal is a conservative who has not been mugged yet. I think MA residents are finally reaching a tipping point on how much they can be taxed, abused, lied to, etc etc.

I still can’t fathom why they put up with the Kennedys crap for so long. I guess Teddy brought home lots of pork.

She was already dropping and then she pulled that trick of sending one of her thugs back to beat down, and maybe murder, a reporter she didn't like.

People in Massachusetts know what that sort of thing really means.

Excellent observation. If Menino was upbeat, he would have given a very upbeat and positive message. His comments are neither. It sounds like he thinks Cloakly will lose.

-- The internal polls must show the bottom dropping out for Coakley. --

Intrade has her losing. A remarkable pair of charts, hers and Scott Brown's, since Jan 10. It cost 90 cents to win a dollar on Coakley taking the election, back then. Dropped like a rock, and still dropping. It's my sense that Obama's visit will do more to harm her chances than to help them. He and she will each say stupid things.

We dont need Brown to help Obama to fail, he is doing a good job of that all by himself.

The Congress has been fluffing for him for a year now and fail is written all over this administration.

Article says he made the comments to a "mostly black congregation", but article doesn't say where.

I presume another instance of Democrats campaigning illegally in a church.

The Party of Abortion getting votes in a house of worship. Sad.

Abortion supporting voters in a house of worship allowing campaining. Sad (but not surprising)

And what is really sad is that blacks seem to allow the Dem Party to continue to keep them down, as they destroy their culture and families, by offering them "free handouts", making them a "victim" class and rewriting history.

Someone needs to go to those black congregations and ask those who have lost their jobs to raise their hands. Then ask how many have had Obama pay their rent and buy their gas. Then ask if they really got what they voted for.

It is pretty amazingly convenient how their “separation of church and state” has such fluid parameters.

Coakley began the day at Charles Street AME, where about 70 congregants at the largely black church came to hold a prayer service for Haiti. There were men in suits, women wearing their Sunday hats. Coakley sat near the front, between Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Representative Marie St. Fleur.

“They don’t want Barack to be a president who leads this country,” Menino said, to calls from the crowd of “Say it, mayor, say it.” “They want him to be a president who fails. We’re not going to let that happen…We lose this one, we lose the opportunity for Barack Obama and the change agenda to move forward.”

******

I believe that would be called campaigning in a CHURCH (if he was a Republican)!
