"...I'd like to thank the voters of New Hampshire"

The Lennox Hotel Boston Nov 6th 2012 10:15 p.m.

Thank you, Thank you all.

I want you all to know that I received a phone call from the pres­i­dent, to con­grat­u­late me on our hard-​fought vic­tory and express­ing his delight that we would be able to spend the next four years work­ing together to take this coun­try in a direc­tion we can be proud of.

They say that vic­tory has a mil­lion fathers and defeat is an orphan. I am so grate­ful for all of your hard work, the long hours and the ded­i­ca­tion to our cause that was so vital in our vic­tory tonight but before I thank by name those who worked hard­est I’d like to reflect for a moment on how we got here and remind you that a vic­tory like the one we are cel­e­brat­ing tonight, is the child of not only our hard work but of tak­ing advan­tage of chang­ing times and the mis­takes our oppo­nents have made.

All of us remem­ber that Jan­u­ary day back in 2010 when Mass­a­chu­setts defied the expec­ta­tions of a nation and for the first time since the 70’s sent a mem­ber of the Grand old Party to the United States Sen­ate. It was a seis­mic shift that sent shock waves nation­wide. We saw the rise of the tea party. We saw the elec­tions of 2010 giv­ing the GOP the great­est elec­toral vic­tory in a non-​presidential year in gen­er­a­tions, and we saw not only the retire­ment of long­time mem­bers of the con­gress like Ben Nel­son and Bar­ney Frank but we saw can­di­dates for office from New York to West Vir­ginia run away from Pres­i­dent Obama in order to pre­vent elec­toral disaster.

And then, as it did a year prior, an elec­tion in Jan­u­ary changed the equation.

In the state of New Hamp­shire just an hour’s trip away the vot­ers of the Gran­ite State after months of cam­paign­ing and con­sid­er­ing choose to ele­vate Mitt Rom­ney over his rivals giv­ing him a solid vic­tory in the Gran­ite state in his quest for the GOP nomination.

The vot­ers fol­lowed the party estab­lish­ment, con­vinced that the best way to defeat Barack Obama was to select a can­di­date they thought would appeal to mod­er­ates and inde­pen­dents and to reject the con­ser­vatism that had been the sta­ple of the tea party.

My friends it was that deci­sion that changed the world. It was the deci­sion that put Mitt Rom­ney at the top of the Bal­lot for the GOP.

On reflec­tion one might under­stand it, after all a suc­cess­ful busi­ness­man, a gov­er­nor, a man with a clean fam­ily life that can appeal to mod­er­ates and who rejected the polar­iza­tion of the tea party.

They thought they were play­ing it safe but it was a deci­sion that pro­gres­sives could not do without:

With­out it pro­gres­sives could not run against a can­di­date of Wall street on the top of the ticket GOP ticket.

With­out it pro­gres­sives could not, due to his pro­fessed faith, attack him on social con­ser­vatism, with­out ener­giz­ing actual social con­ser­v­a­tives who believed him “moderate”.

With­out it we wouldn’t have the videos of can­di­date after can­di­date for the GOP twist­ing them­selves in knots try­ing to explain to the media how they can run against “Oba­macare” while sup­port­ing the author of “Rom­n­ey­care” for president.

With­out it tea party mem­bers all over the nation, the grass-​roots activists who made 2010 what is was would have been ener­gized and anx­ious to make calls, donate money and do the work of cam­paign­ing that every can­di­date needs to cross the fin­ish line.

And with­out it, here in Mass­a­chu­setts con­ser­v­a­tives, already vac­il­lat­ing over Scott Brown’s record, might have been moti­vated just enough to hold their noses and turn out in an elec­tion and a state where Repub­li­cans need every pos­si­ble vote.

Two years ago it appeared the tide of to pro­gres­sivism had been stemmed, that the basic phi­los­o­phy of gov­ern­ment being there to take care of the peo­ple who served, was rejected.

Instead today we have four more years in the White House, a House retained despite over­whelm­ing odds and here in Mass­a­chu­setts the deci­sive sen­ate seat held so long by the lion of lib­er­al­ism Ted Kennedy back in the hands of the Demo­c­ra­tic party where it belongs.

And while I am grate­ful beyond words for all you and I have done to get us here, I’d like to thank the vot­ers of New Hamp­shire, may it never be for­got­ten that the first step on the jour­ney that took me, Eliz­a­beth War­ren, to the Sen­ate was taken by the vot­ers in New Hamp­shire on a warm Jan­u­ary day when we Democ­rats and lib­er­als needed it most.

Thank you, Thank you all.

I want you all to know that I received a phone call from the president, to congratulate me on our hard-fought victory and expressing his delight that we would be able to spend the next four years working together to take this country in a direction we can be proud of.

They say that victory has a million fathers and defeat is an orphan. I am so grateful for all of your hard work, the long hours and the dedication to our cause that was so vital in our victory tonight but before I thank by name those who worked hardest I’d like to reflect for a moment on how we got here and remind you that a victory like the one we are celebrating tonight, is the child of not only our hard work but of taking advantage of changing times and the mistakes our opponents have made.

All of us remember that January day back in 2010 when Massachusetts defied the expectations of a nation and for the first time since the 70′s sent a member of the Grand old Party to the United States Senate. It was a seismic shift that sent shock waves nationwide. We saw the rise of the tea party. We saw the elections of 2010 giving the GOP the greatest electoral victory in a non-presidential year in generations, and we saw not only the retirement of longtime members of the congress like Ben Nelson and Barney Frank but we saw candidates for office from New York to West Virginia run away from President Obama in order to prevent electoral disaster.

And then, as it did a year prior, an election in January changed the equation.

In the state of New Hampshire just an hour’s trip away the voters of the Granite State after months of campaigning and considering choose to elevate Mitt Romney over his rivals giving him a solid victory in the Granite state in his quest for the GOP nomination.

The voters followed the party establishment, convinced that the best way to defeat Barack Obama was to select a candidate they thought would appeal to moderates and independents and to reject the conservatism that had been the staple of the tea party.

My friends it was that decision that changed the world. It was the decision that put Mitt Romney at the top of the Ballot for the GOP.

On reflection one might understand it, after all a successful businessman, a governor, a man with a clean family life that can appeal to moderates and who rejected the polarization of the tea party.

They thought they were playing it safe but it was a decision that progressives could not do without:

Without it progressives could not run against a candidate of Wall street on the top of the ticket GOP ticket.

Without it progressives could not, due to his professed faith, attack him on social conservatism, without energizing actual social conservatives who believed him “moderate”.

Without it we wouldn’t have the videos of candidate after candidate for the GOP twisting themselves in knots trying to explain to the media how they can run against “Obamacare” while supporting the author of “Romneycare” for president.

Without it tea party members all over the nation, the grass-roots activists who made 2010 what is was would have been energized and anxious to make calls, donate money and do the work of campaigning that every candidate needs to cross the finish line.

And without it, here in Massachusetts conservatives, already vacillating over Scott Brown’s record, might have been motivated just enough to hold their noses and turn out in an election and a state where Republicans need every possible vote.

Two years ago it appeared the tide of to progressivism had been stemmed, that the basic philosophy of government being there to take care of the people who served, was rejected.

Instead today we have four more years in the White House, a House retained despite overwhelming odds and here in Massachusetts the decisive senate seat held so long by the lion of liberalism Ted Kennedy back in the hands of the Democratic party where it belongs.

And while I am grateful beyond words for all you and I have done to get us here, I’d like to thank the voters of New Hampshire, may it never be forgotten that the first step on the journey that took me, Elizabeth Warren, to the Senate was taken by the voters in New Hampshire on a warm January day when we Democrats and liberals needed it most.
