ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In commenting on the Democrats’ loss in Massachusetts (“Obama unable to deliver in three major losses,” Politics, Friday) Rep. Chris Van Hollen, Maryland Democrat, stated, “The White House, which has a big megaphone, needs to make sure that the contrasts are very clear to the public.”

On its face, that is an absurd statement. Scott Brown, with his small megaphone, made very clear to the voters of Massachusetts what the contrasts are. President Obama even went to the state to stump for Martha Coakley. He knew the contrasts had been madevery clear to theelectorate, which is why all he could do was bash Sen.-Elect Brown’s pickup truck.

The Democratic Party leadership refuses to acknowledge that the American people know very well the differences between what they want and the crumbling Democratic agenda. The contrasts are, in fact, a chasm.
