Charlie Baker gets very upset when asked if he's a "social conservative."
(Excerpt) Read more at politipage.com ...
This is Romney and Brown’s guy... Enough said.
And let's not forget he was Mitt's right hand in formulating RomneyCare which was the blueprint for ObamaCare.
Not only should this scumbag be defeated, he needs to come in third place behind Cahill and Patrick.
Join “DUMP TISEI”.
Haley Barbour and his Republican Governors’ Association has gone all-in for Charlie Baker too.
If the GOP was smart (yeah right) they should back Cahill/Loscocco like they did Lieberman in CT.
Cahill or bust for me. I'd rather Deval again than Baker - he sucks and his running mate most definitely sucks.
Cahill was on talk radio a few months ago saying how the only difference between himself and the R candidates was that “being a former Democrat I am more aligned with them and will get along better with them than the Rs”
he is an opportunist that tested the waters to run in the Dem primary but since all of the Dem party officials nationally and in the state promised to destroy him so he went Indie. Not that Baker is a prize mind you i just dont buy the whole Cahill is the real conservative out there
clearly he is not
From what I have heard Cahill say - I like him better, too. although, I do not put much into what any politician says.
Plus, those VERY negative ads that the Republicans put out are really bad and offensive and seem to go after Cahill only and completely ignores what Baker STANDS FOR (if he stands for anything).
Is Loscocco the former State Rep? If it’s the same guy I’m thinking of, I will definitely vote Cahill/Loscocco.
>his running mate most definitely sucks.
Well, what would the GOP be without a vice gubernatorial candidate who sponsored a gender neutral bathroom bill for our esteemed state. I tell ya....
I do not hear Baker talking about anything.
As of now, he’s got money and he’s bombarding us with anti Cahill ads.....hope they work because I barely knew who Cahill was until Baker began dissing him!
KEmom - yes, Loscocco is the former State Rep.
We don't have much of a choice here in MA, and one of these clowns is going to win. Again, it's a choice of the lesser evil.
Cahill is a fraud too. He’s got a new web ad out basically attacking the yahoos in the south, Republicans and, of course, Bush.
Screw him. Once a Dem always a Dem.
And I’m not sure why Baker is trying to be all liberal in a year that is pro conservative. He makes Scott Brown look like a right-wing radical.
It may be that Mass is just a lost cause.

Mitt Romney part deaux.
Baker should be attacking Patrick, not just Cahill. You're right, all he's doing is raising Cahill’s profile and looking like a clown in the process.
Baker needs to stick to Building 19. Tisei can troll the men's restrooms.
Like I posted before, IF the GOP/RNC had a brain, they'd back Cahill the same way they backed Lieberman in CT back in 2006.
Exactly. Sure Cahill may be herpes. But Baker is AIDS. (And Deval is Elena Kagan with AIDS).
Impy, if the two choices were Baker or Deval, at this point, I vote for Deval.
Baker sucks and is unacceptable.
“It may be that Mass is just a lost cause.”
thats pretty much it in a nutshell
I agree with the lesser evil aspect i used to live in MA so i keep tabs on the politics down there but do consider this.
1. i think Baker would be a better executive than Deval or Cahill which has nothing to do with ideology.
2. in a redistricting year an R Governor (RINO or otherwise) would be far better than a former Dem Indie who would probably try to buy support for buddies by passing anything the Dem legislature throws on his desk. This year the state GOP MAY be able to get enough seats in the legislature to keep a Veto from being overridden. its a long shot but with an R Governor you at least have a chance of this scenario. with a former Dem turned Indie and a Dem you have ZERO chance of that happening
3. Cahill is an opportunist nothing more and i really was appalled before this whole Tea Party train took off how he basically kept saying he was still basically a Dem just couldnt stand Deval’s incompetence. Once he found a niche for himself by attaching himself to the tea party suddenly he is all about their “values” which i find highly dubious
But the overriding factor to me is Baker's involvement in RomneyCare which was a blueprint for ObamaCare. Baker cannot be rewarded for this. In fact, Baker getting defeated is another nail in Mitt's political coffin - a true ‘two-for-one’ deal.
Add in Baker's uber-liberalism and at least in this voter's opinion, he is not acceptable as a gubernatorial candidate or local dog catcher.
there are absolutely no good choices there and although we disagree who the least “evil” would be i think we understand where the other is coming from
