The Massachusetts political cancer has spread to Brown. I personally didn’t think he had much to offer from the outset. Massachusetts had to choose the lesser of two evils, which is still a vote for evil.

Brown signed the pledge stating he wouldn't vote for anything until the tax cut was extended for everyone.

He is welcome to vote for the repeal after the new congress sits in January, when his vote wont matter.

Scott Brown is an always has been a RINO and now that Obamacare has passed serves NO purpose. He needs to be ousted next time around.

He miss-read his own election. The chant “41” was a call by the electorate to STOP everything in the senate, NOT to be some “Independent”

Pre-election he was all over conservative Boston radio. Now radio-silence. The guy is a 1st rate p**sy and can’t handle the voters telling him what to do.

I’ve completely written him off as no better than Kerry.

All the apologists and Brown fans better wake up quick. He’s been there a year and already blown at lest a dozen votes.

Brown is good on some votes (way better than Kennedy) but terrible on others. It was to be expected.

Likely he feels he has to give on something (DADT) because he's under fire in MA for holding firm on the tax cut extension.

Don't forget his seat is up for election in '12. He's to be commended for the times he DOES vote with the GOP between now and then, but he likely will be the RINO-est Senator in Congress.

Rinos are worse than evil...at least evil is honest, when you vote for Democrat, you know you are voting for evil.

Rinos are gladly useful idiots for the communists. The enjoy lying and taking donations from citizens who believe their lies.

Rinos have but one goal...the work with the MSM/DNC to defeat Conservatism, marginalize Conservatism, and radicalize Conservatism.

RINO’s are always doing things like that.

We all know that the report was heavily slanted and meaningless, but RINO’s so want to take the other side they’ll accept any straw.

How long before conservatives simply give up on the GOP?

Too bad. He had the excuse that he was just going along with that faked opinion poll that the troops wanted this. But he spoke out just when three Generals came out and said, no, that’s not what they are hearing from the troops.

Obviously he was playing to his constituents, but I don’t believe it will help him in the least. Gay marriage and all the rest of that stuff had to be shoved down the throats of the voters by activist courts and a twisted governor (Romney), even in Massachusetts.

In my experience, DADT is the way a civilized people interact.

Otherwise, if anyone is interested, I can tell all what I want to do with your teenage daughters.

Homosexuality and various other perversions/proclivities are a reality that exist. They are best kept to self and partners.

Nothing pi$$es me off more than a retard who feels the need to tell me where he/she gets a thrill in the sack. Throw that $hit into a foxhole, and you have a recipe for discourd.

"I accept the findings of the report

Has anyone else stopped to consider that this so-called "report" that seems to "settle" the question, might be a crock of fertilizer?

I want to know if the respondents were able to do so anonymously. I want to see very detail of how, where and by whom the questions were asked. I've never been in the military, but I do know that on the surface, you're supposed to go along with whatever your superiors want. Ultimately this all trickles down to chain of command up to the CIC.

This strategy of a survey/report that allegedly removes all opposition to major left-wing agenda item "report" sounds to me like Saul Alinksy's wet dream. I don't buy it for a second.

Sorry, that argument is not going to fly here. People won't be happy until Brown is defeated by O'Donnell's twin sister, and then trounced in the general by someone well to the left of Ted Kennedy.

>>He needs to be ousted next time around.

There already is a groundswell of support for what could be our next Senator here in MA:

Vicky Kennedy.

Yeah. That would be better. (Article linked below claimed Brown is the most popular pol in MA. Surely someone much less popular would beat him...? Remember this is MA:
Patrick, Murray, Bump, Grossman, Frank, Tierney, Keating,
Olver, Markey, Kerry... If we can get a true conservative in 2012, great, but remember 11/2/10, the second Revolution: Other than getting a few more Republicans in the state legislature, this commonwealth proved to be
DemocRAT heaven.)

>>Is it merely touting, as the sign reads, the attendance of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s widow at a mayoral event on immigrants and diversity? Or is it part of a low-wattage effort to maintain Vicki Kennedy’s profile for a possible 2012 campaign against the man who succeeded her husband, Republican Sen. Scott Brown? That’s the hope of the roughly 1,700 members of a Facebook group “Vicki Kennedy for Senator of Massachusetts in 2012.”
The interest is shared by some Democrats looking for a heavy-hitting challenger to Brown, who staged an extraordinary upset in January to claim the seat Edward Kennedy had held for nearly a half-century.

Exactly. By the way prior to the election Brown said that he would vote with GOP sometimes, Dems sometimes; depended on what he thought was best for state, and he said he was that way in the state Senate too.

The Dems promptly released a TV ad: “Who is Scott Brown, really? A Republican. Who will Republican vote Republican
in Republican lockstep with the Republican party.”

Who was telling the truth here, Brown or the Dems?

A bit more, from NECN:

"I think it would potentially be exceedingly disruptive to the force," he said, and expressed doubts for troops' safety if the policy was immediately implemented while they are in battle.

Brown said he wanted the policy to take first take effect for troops at home, and said emphasized that there should be increased education and training for soldiers if or when the policy takes effect.

Deval had high negatives but managed to win (thanks to Tim
Cahill). Overall the last election proved the unions, etc.
could get out their votes and scare tactics (the state will come to an end if the tax rollback passes) and people voted
lockstep Ds, other than in some state legislature races.

While it does show some hope for us that many Mass. pols
don’t score as well in popularity polls, the one that
counted just about a month ago proved otherwise...

I would like to weigh in on some of this DADT discussion

The U.S. Military had better get ready for implementation of the U.S. Department of State’s Foreign Service Manuals, Foreign Service Regulations, and other official policy bulletins and memorandums being utilized as the “benchmark” from which they are rewritten into the DOD Regulations supporting Gays, Lesbians, Bi and Transgendered employees. Some background for you to investigate.

Obama signed a Presidential declaration starting in 2009 that the month of June is LGBT/Appreciation of Gays, with the same type awareness as Asian Pacific Islanders/Black History/Hispanic Months are recognized by the military.
The US Department of State, under Hillary Clinton’s directives have promoted this “Diversity” by making gay partners eligible to become actual “members of household (MOH)” eligible for Family Member Employment via Human Recourses; the Department of State has rewrote the Foreign Affairs Manuals, along with the Foreign Affairs Regulations, to support this implementation. Under the Secretary of State’s guidance, a man can have a gay lover and even that lover’s children put on their official orders and this is permitted to be supported by the Department of State as “Dependents”, yet someone living a non-gay lifestyle cannot have a live in girlfriend as a Member of Household.
All of this information should be available publically from the Department of State’s Public Affairs Office upon request. Be sure to ask for the Presidential Proclamation, Secretary Hillary’s annual correspondence and Cable Traffic, and Department Notices. Also request the FAMs and FARs allowing gay MOH to be supported by the Department of State either financially or with other privileges normally extended to Family Members.
An angle which I believe should be explored is whether there is an actual financial earmark or line item expenditure authorized for the Secretary of State’s actions, or is this an unfunded expenditure mandated by Hillary and endorsed by the President himself? Are these Social Engineering efforts legal when appropriated funding is being budgeted to give travel allowances, dependent COLA and other pay to support non-spouse “Members of Household” at the Department of State?

Rinos/MSM/DNC love “reports”, commissions, judges rulings, academic “science”, tv “documentaries”, “journalism”.etc.

It is the construct they use for their commie propaganda.

It is why they worked for 40 years to own the Judiciary, Academia, Hollywood, and TV broadcasts.

The only thing they missed is talk Radio...because Rush got there first.

No one is pimping Brown for the RNC presidential nominee, ever. But, if people think that we are going to find someone more conservative than Brown who can win in MA, they need to put down the crack pipe.

And, if they would rather then have a Dem instead of Brown, I hope they're willing to cut that nose off their spiteful faces.

Boston Herald, Nov. 7, 2012

Vicky Kennedy waved to supporters as she celebrated her victory over Republican John Doe by a 75-25 margin in the U.S. Senate race. Doe, a hardcover conservative, squeaked by incumbent Scott Brown in the primary but lost to the popular Kennedy in “a very blue state”. Kennedy is the widow of
Ted Kennedy, who had the seat for 47 years.

“We’re proud to have a Kennedy back in office,” said
Barney Frank, who won re-election as well by a similar
margin, again defeating Sean Bielat. “What a great state!”
