I had higher hopes after I met Polito a few years ago.
The Lieutenant Gov here in MA is just as rabidly anti-Trump as Baker is, based on her recent stance.
Really, a Massachusetts Republican Governor? I believe that’s an impossibility. They only call themselves Republican, they’re really libs masquerading as Republicans.
Many, many, many false republiturds out there these days!!!!!!
Who in their right mind believes a REAL Republican would be AGAINST Trump???
We had high hopes for Romney, too, before it became clear that the Governor position of MA was just a stepping-stone for his Presidential ambitions. Baker doesn’t seem to have that ambition, but otherwise, he’s a complete fake-out, in that he might as well have come out as a full-blown Democrat from the beginning.
Recent MA governors
Mike Dukakis D 1975-79, 1983-91
Bill Weld “R” 1991-97
Paul Cellucci R 1997-2001
Jane Swift acting gov “R” 2001-03
Mittens Romney “R” 2003-07
Deval Patrick D 2007-15
Charlie Baker “R” 2015-
This vision crosses party lines and is understood well enough by many educated, moderate voters that they want in on it, also.
Trump is seen as a solitary loudmouth standing in the way.
He has only survived two and a half years in office by playing dumber than he is. Many of the moderate Republicans prefer to say to their Democrat partners, "Just let him alone - we'll help you get him out in 2020."
But when Trump lets the cat out of the bag, like mentioning Crowdstrike to the Ukrainian leader in a phone call, this elite suddenly feels a great stab of fear that maybe, just maybe, Trump isn't a clown after all, and he has been quietly gathering evidence against them. They try to reassure themselves that such evidence won't matter - that that the Deep State has all of the Federal law enforcement agencies under their control, not Trump's - but they aren't 100% sure. And the military is still a wild card under Trump's control, despite Obama's efforts to subvert its leadership.
Add in the impeding death of RBG, and they reach a point of near insanity. How dare this one man, an apparent clown, stand in the way of their Utopia!
But it's all going to turn on whether there are still elected and unelected patriots in American government. If the Clinton-Bush-Obama subversion is complete, there is nothing Trump can do to convict the seditionists, nor to halt the slide into collectivism.
I've been waiting since 2016 for one single power center within American government or industry to speak up on Trump's behalf and against the planned Deep State Utopia. Aside from a few solitary voices, here and there, I haven't heard one.
Waiting for RINO Never-Trumper Hogan in Maryland.
There is a landscape worker in Maricopa County that was alleged to vote Republican once. Have they found him for an interview yet?
The media and journalists are the young Brown Shirts.
So vote rat?
Apparently, GOP voters already did when they elected these two dirt bags.
At least a rat will look you in the face when they spit at you.
To paraphrase another freeper: I’d rather have a Democrat in front of me than a Republican behind me.
Vermont is also known for ben & Jerry’s commie-crunch bars
New England? Who cares?
I don’t think the senators from vt or ma have to worry about being ‘Scalise’d.
Who needs enemies....
It’s OK, they’re not actual Republicans. Two Derper Communist kooks.
Last decent MA Governor: Ed King (DINO, later R), 1979-1983.
Yep, all the recent "Republican" governors of MA have been defacto Democrats. I'd be curious to find out when Massachusetts had a Republican governor who acted like an ACTUAL Republican. For example, Illinois really hasn't had one since William Stratton in the 50s.
Might have to go back to Calvin Coolidge in 1919. So many of them had left-leaning inclinations.
