It will be good. I would have enjoyed Virginia's new Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to do it instead.

Good. Have a conservative give the address instead of the RINO Brown.

He’s good. He’s telegenic and a competent speaker who comes across as intelligent and earnest. He doesn’t have Brown’s charisma, but he does come across as a serious guy.

As long as he stays positive and constructive. No Barry bashing, and stay away from republican rah rah. (R) was a nasty word during the last election and now will need a slow and balanced re-introduction to the mainstream voter.

i think he’ll do fine. he is a republican success story in a state that went for Obams, not quite as glamorous as Scott Brown, but i don’t think it would be fair to have Scott thrown into this task quite yet!

Since Barry will be pushing his bank tax in the SOTU, I hope the Guv refers to it as the bank customer tax. Since that is who will be ultimately paying for it via higher fees.

I rather have a politician closer to Ronald Reagan give the GOP response than one closer to William Weld.

Words I hope to heaven NOT to hear:

"reaching out to our friends across the aisle"
"bipartisan"
"committed to cooperating"

I don't care what anyone says, these all portray weakness and a reluctance to assert a conservative agenda.

I wouldn’t worry - top of his agenda is pushing a bill to make it ILLEGAL to require someone to BUY health insurance ...

And anyone who watched the debate or has visited his website will agree with you. Some folks are in for another Michael Steele style let down.

That's great, but isn't it by default already illegal to do that?

(nevermind, there I go thinking constitutionally again!)

Sure some are but most people with an inkling of intelligence knows the product. Any hope for a true conservative to be elected statewide in Massachusetss is nothing but pure foolish fantasy.

You’re right. Scott Brown’s win in MA was great and he’s about the best we can hope for from MA but he’s not the furure of the GOP. A guy like Bob McDonnell IS. He’s very good.

Populist: A supporter of the rights and power of the people.

If the GOP retains Mikey Steele, then more “Republican/Independets” will run as Populists [not the 1891 political party].

Sarah Palin, Scott Brown, Bob McDonnell, and others who use the “R” are not Mikey Steele and the GOP style Republicans. They are Populist Republicans. And that’s why they get the votes and why they win. They don’t want nor need Mikey Steele to come to their States and rally voters. The voters are already rallied. Mikey Steele would be the “kiss of defeat” just like 0bama is for Democrats.

Think outside the “Republican” Box! The New “R” politicians do not fit into a GOP mold. They do fit into Their State Conservative/Populist/Republican Rights mold.

It’s a new, freer, more educated, more outspoken political atmosphere. For Virginians, Bob McDonnell is their choice. For Massachusetts, Scott Brown is their choice. Neither of them have to be cookie-cutter replicas of each other. They “fit” their own State Voters even if they don’t fit the Voters of another State.

The person who appeals to voters in every State will be the person who is the best “fit” for the “R” win for the White House in 20-12.

Normally I wouldn’t bother to watch the liar in chief.

But this is so delicious I can hardly wait.

He put off the SOTU so he could brag on passing health care.

Now he can talk only about the failures of the past year, all being President Bush’ fault.

Since when did this guys anti-tax, anti-terrorist , anti-obamacare, pro-American stance become that of the RINO? Are you some sort of strange Glenn Beck styled conspirisist?

It's way, way, way too early for this but on another blog this morning I saw the following:

McDonnell/Brown 2012

Yeah I know it's crazy at this point but these are two relatively young, attractive candidates and they both have bright futures. It will be interesting to watch both.

He did what he had to in Mass, he’s still a RINO. You’re not as smart as you think you are.

Excellent! An antidote to the embarrassment of having The Eyebrow give the dem response to Dubya’s last SOTU speech.

Classic!

Maybe you’re not as smart as you think you are.

Please tell us the issues Scott Brown successfully ran on in the solid blue state of Massachusetts?

Or maybe you aren’t as smart as you think since I obviously said he was, but don’t let that stop you.

Here’s the YouTube link to his State of the Commonwealth address he made a few days ago:
