They could be toast.
So, the safe thing to do is to keep an increasingly unpopular President from screwing up any hope of keep the seat. You can't be too careful now and you can bet the GOP knows this.
So it comes as no surprise when I read that Scott Brown was actually goading the President to come up, by using the old reverse psychology ploy.
Surging GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown yesterday warned President Obama to “stay away” from the Bay State during his roiling race against Democratic rival Martha Coakley and not to interfere with their intensifying battle in the campaign’s final days.
Now to the untrained eye, this may appear that Mr. Brown is worried. On the contrary. Fact is, he very much wants the President to come up, because there is nothing that could hurt Coakley (any more than herself) worse than a failing President, who brought to Washington a team of incompetents, who seem to excel at running things into the ground.
I think Brown may have a chance here.
