I am sure his decline in approval has nothing at all to do with his vote on Healthcare. /s

Libs are afraid this will translate into a vote AGAINST Healthcare when it comes back up.

When Brown wins look for Nelson, Lincoln, Webb and Bayh (maybe other Dems as well) to rethink their current support for Obamacare.

If Brown wins in Mass. (or even comes close), Pelosi and Reid are going to have a very hard time keeping Dems in line when it comes time to vote on ObamaCare, Cap & Trade etc. The Obama rally in Mass. had empty seats, in a medium sized facility no less. The rank and file Dems are going to be in panic mode shortly, if they aren’t already.

The Democrats are looking more and more like the Governor and his staff from Blazing Saddles.

It is disheartening that 42% still approve.

Nelson sold out America to bring home the pork to Nebraska and keep his base happy. It doesn’t look like that is working out for him. Nebraskans are Americans too!

"When Brown wins look for Nelson, Lincoln, Webb and Bayh (maybe other Dems as well) to rethink their current support for Obamacare."

I know they're completely shamelwaa, but if they voted for it the first time, then vote against it, they would look like transparent, pathetic losers.

Don't get me wrong. I want them to vote against their first vote, and I won't even think of them any differently for it, because I thought they were pathetic losers to begin with.

The Obama/Reid/Pelosi “healthcare” bill has guaranteed that at least the first two members of thast unholy triumvarite will never be re-elected, along with most of their fellow democrats.

Nelson is a good example that proves liberals are stupid.

More likely he is a product of long-standing Senate Cloakroom culture which states that you can do shady back-room deals and slimy payoffs, and most of the voting public will be none the wiser. With the internet, talk radio Fox News, et. al. they simply cannot get away with that any more. But since most of ‘em are old fossils, it appears they are a bit slow on the uptake.

Ben was in trouble into 2012 anyway going against a popular govenor. Ben has always said he was for Nebraska, not the Dems or Reps. He had a lot of people fooled until ObamaCare came along. It became the litmus test of his word, Nebraska does not want it, so Ben should vote against it and stand up for Nebraska and agaisnt the Dems as he has promised he would do.

Well he didn’t so that opened everyone’s eyes, and that he took a payoff to change his vote put the final nail in the coffin.

Nelson can’t save himself. The GOP Governor would kick his butt in 2012.

If Lincoln votes no she may get a primary challenge from the moonbat Arkansas LT Governor. LOL.

If Lincoln votes no she's still going to be kick out. The people of Arkansas are pissed at the way congress has tried to force this BS down their throats. Lincoln has drank the Obama cool-aid like most Dems in D.C.
