Romney says Brown can ‘make history’
The Boston Globe ^ | 01-01-10 | The Boston Globe Staff

Posted on 01/02/2010 9:25:42 AM PST by GOP_Lady

Mitt Romney - that rare political breed, a Republican elected statewide in Massachusetts - told supporters yesterday that if Scott Brown can pull off a similar feat next month in the US Senate special election, it “would shock the country and send a strong message that business as usual in Washington is coming to an end.’’

“He would bring badly-needed fiscal restraint to an out-of-control budget process that is adding trillions of dollars to our national debt,’’ said Romney, the former Bay State governor who gives every indication he’s preparing a second presidential bid in 2012.

The Kiss of Death. Romney support.

I am going to vote for Brown despite Romneys endorsement.

Send a little electronic love ($$$) to Brown today and the Dems could lose their 60-member majority in the Senate on January 19. The fact that this is Ted Kennedy’s vacant seat is hot, rich gravy.

Typical Romney vapid support.

Not a word about Scott Brown directly.

The same emptiness Romney had when he tanked the Mass.GOP.
for the DNC.

Hey, Mitt. it “would shock the country and send a strong message that business as usual in Washington is coming to an end.’ Heed your own words - because "YOU" are a part of Washington.

Mitt Romney - that rare political breed, a Republican elected statewide in Massachusetts

Romney was the fourth republican governor in a row there, the problem is that he was so lousy that he slinked out of office with a 34% approval rate, and gave the office to the democrats.

Very true. The same Mitt that is AWOL on important or controversial issues. Better to let DeMint and the womenfolk (Palin and Bachmann) do the fighting. Mitt doesn’t want to mess his hair.

Unfortunately you’ve got it exactly right re: Romney in MA.

I am intrigued by the lack of polling data on this race, however. Could it be closer than the usual Democrat suspects want to acknowledge? This is an exceedingly rare open Senate seat for them, and absolutely no polling is being reported.

"It's exactly what Ronald Reagan did. As governor, he was adamantly pro-choice."

Mitt Romney: "I'm not a partisan politician. My hope is that, after this election, it will be the moderates of both parties who will control the Senate, not the Jesse Helmses."

Look into what Martha Coakley wants to do in her 30+ years in the senate, before considering a vote for her.

Also look into her record. Of all, and I mean all, of the high-profile graft and corruption cases in MA, every single one has been brought on by the Feds, never ever the Massachusetts AG, Coakley.

It would be a sweet thing to see, but assume that the Senate is indeed split 59-41 after a Brown victory. If I am correct - there are no more votes in the process of the conference procedure between the House and the Senate on the health care legislation that need the 60 vote threshold in the Senate. From here on out it can be agreed to by a 50% +1 majority. So it’s not a game-changer.

Not a Romney fan, but he’s right on this one: if Brown takes the Mass. Senate seat, it’s hard to imagine a stronger message that the country - even that part populated by Massholes - is fed up with Obamaism.

Not even perky Katie and her ilk in the MSM will be able to spin their way out of that conclusion (although if it does come to pass, they’ll try like like hell to do so).

And the mittens try to attach a conservative tag on Mitt! He's tells what he is. Mitt is of the Newt mindset 'the Reagan era is over'. They loathe conservatism. Dede is their girl.

He’s got a megaphone, and given that he was elected governor, he’s got people who believe in him - if that helps put Brown over the top, that’s fine by me.

There’s a lot I don’t like about Romney, but some of his opposition is starting to reek of Romney derangement syndrome. Dump on him when he does something counterproductive (no lack of opportunities there), expose him when his people knife our allies in the back (again, not hard to find), but I just don’t see any point in slamming him when he’s doing something useful.

What has he done that is useful? He sees Brown may win and jumps on the bandwagon? Pleeeze. Shows just how much you are looking for just a ‘grain’ of anything to put a star next to his name.

Mitt is the poster boy for empty suit. You realy think anyone will vote for Brown because of what Mitt says? Mitt is FOR Obamacare - Brown is AGAINST it! A vote for Brown is a vote against Mitt and Mittcare/Obamacare.

Romney is right, its not business as usual, and country club RINOs who pretend to be conservative and will say or do anything to get elected are going to have their asses handed to them.

MYTH FLIP SLICK WILLARD RINO ROMNEY being at the top of the list.

That's Mitt's dream - he thrives off of the clueless, disparate and needy for his gain. He's a crumb dropper and the needy gravitate towards it.

He can take his big government controlled healthcare - sugar daddy mindset - and shove it. His mittens can crawl up his butt to feel safe.

Hey, Mitt - how is your 'little' following going to cover your butt on this one - the greatest fraud perpetrated on the world for 'control'. And Mitt is for it! Along w/his socialistic mindset for government 'control' healthcare.

DeMint probably supported Mitt for the same reason I voted for Mitt in the Michigan primary: he wasn't John McCain.

By the way quietcontrarian: In the Michigan primary, Mitt was big on federal support for the “Detroit Three.” Whatever you think the voters want to hear, that's Mitt.
