Patrick Stumps for Senate Candidate What’s-Her-Name

It’s so Patrick Kennedy to enlist in a partisan battle and offer passionate support for a candidate whose name he doesn’t know:

Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), speaking with a gaggle of reporters after the event, said that while state Sen. Scott Brown (R) offers voters a quick fix, in reality, the problems created by “George Bush and his cronies” are not so easily solved.
“If you think there’s magic out there and things can be turned around overnight, then you would vote for someone who could promise you that, like Scott Brown,” Kennedy said. “If you don’t, if you know that it takes eight years for George Bush and his cronies to put our country into this hole … then you know we have a lot of digging to do, but some work needs to be done and this president’s in the process of doing it and we need to get Marcia Coakley to help him to do that.”

And it’s so Rhode Island U.S. legislator to have nothing constructive to say and concentrate, instead, on declaring superiority to a former president.
What makes it funny (apart from the natural humor of all things Patches) is that the Democrats’ very behavior belies his claims. Clearly, everybody from President Obama to Congressman Barney Frank (D, MA) to candidate Martha Coakley, herself, believes in the magic of a Scott Brown victory to turn national politics around overnight.
Tuesday night, to be precise.

“said that while state Sen. Scott Brown (R) offers voters a quick fix, in reality, the problems created by “George Bush and his cronies” are not so easily solved.”
(Note the dragging out of the Dem’s favorite blame target, by the way.)
Is Brown offering a “quick fix”? I hadn’t heard that.
On the other hand, candidate Barack Obama did offer quick fixes. For a variety of reasons, they have not been delivered; hence, the need to keep the blame target in handy reach.
In short, this sounds like a bit of projecting on the Congressman’s part.
