Obama's Response: Pitch Perfect

More

He's right about this:

Here's my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country.   The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office.   People are angry, and they're frustrated.  Not just because of what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years.

He is refusing to countenance trying to ram the Senate bill through before Brown takes his seat. Now, if Brown wants to keep his seat, would it not behoove him to make an alliance with a president very popular in his home state? Could the two of them come up with a Plan B? From every crisis, an opportunity.
