Deval Patricks records under lock & key
"You think all those cyber sleuths searching
Sarah Palins e-mails would get a similar thrill
looking at, say, Gov. Deval Patricks BlackBerry?
The answer is no, and not just because MSNBC
would never mobilize an army of reporters
to go after a Democrat.
The real reason people will never see Patricks e-mails
is because they cant.
The Massachusetts governor is citing a court ruling
used by Mitt Romney and Paul Cellucci
to exempt himself from the state public records law."
"Let's con them all!"
then why of why does Palin’s executive emails get published?
Romney...the architect of zer0bamacare needs to be properly vetted...
I fail to see the connection between Palin’s email and Mitt Romney. Again, I am no fan of Mitt. What does 0bamacare have to do with Palin’s emails?
“Protected by Romney”?
Selective disclosure/transparency. Tactics of totalitarians and their minions. Standards for Statists 1.0
Many of the MSM attacks on Gov. Palin HAVE
been driven by .... Mitt Romney.
Second, BUT for Romney there would be NEITHER
RomneyCARE nor ObamaCARE.
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++8 pts. days prior to September 18th, 2008.
So the RomneyTeam attacked Gov. Palin and her children to throw Election2008.
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers, some of whom are currently working for Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin's bid for the White House,
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide, now working for McCain-Palin.
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
He's in charge on November 5th.'"
The Prowler added: "Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Romney supporters in the McCain campaign had access to internal polling which indicated well in advance of the November 4 election that McCain had no chance to win.
So they began working to position their man Mitt for a run in 2012. Just two days after the election,The Palmetto Scoop reported:
"One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
These aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"Heres what I think: I think there are some staffers on the McCain campaign who seriously screwed up the roll out of Sarah Palin, to which Governor Palin herself objected.
These staffers are now out trying to finish her off thinking, as typical D.C. types do, that if they dont do it to her, shell do it to them. They just never understood who Palin is or what she is about."
"Likewise, I do think there are some staffers and others who expect Mitt Romney to run again in 2012,
they decided McCain could not win, and decided to undermine Sarah Palin and her chances hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign? (Mark Wallace, Romney pimp)
The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
Right I understand that. I just said I was no fan of Mitt Romney, okay? You don’t have to convince me that Mitt Romney was behind the trash Palin campaign in 2008. In fact, I posted articles in 2008 to this effect.
I think the idea is that Palin and Patrick are both public figures. Since the media dives precipitously into Palin’s life [emails while public employee in this instance] they should also dive headlong into all public employees’ emails.
But this article connotes that they can’t in the case of Deval Patrick...and Romney is brought in gratuitously as the leftist media does when it thinks it will make a difference for their side?
So I dunno if the topic is a “connection” or an “incongruity” but I get the gist.
the real question should be what does zer0bamacare possibly have to do with Mittens emails??
I need to know.
Why blame Romney? Please notice the time of the post; ten seconds before 8:00 am. An anti/Romney post is required here before 8 !
I’m no Romney fan, but the levels of attacks on him make everything associated with FR look small and easily ignored, as opposed to the extremely well-respected site we were a few years ago.
Was not aware of the time requirement. Thanks.
MindBender26, you have shared how you feel.
You think FR “look(s) small” because of
criticism of Romney?
You think FR “look(s) small” because of
citing an article mentioning Romney?
You think FR “look(s) small” because of
citing an article describing a typical Romney anti-transparency coverup?
You think FR “look(s) small” because of
the MSM should be able to harass Gov. Palin,
but any criticism or investigation of Romney
Please favor us with explaining exactly how
having governmental transparency, accountability,
and exposure is ... “small”?
Your picture is clearly worth a thousand words. That is, unfortunately, how my wife and I envision Romney.
Too many liberal pundits and liberal MSM talking heads praise Romney. I don’t want the media to select our candidate for president AGAIN.
WRKO’s Scott Alan Miller went to Milton town hall to get Deval’s Voting Record. The Clerk, who was also the police chief started calling him a Racist. The local blogs then started showing comments about Scotto being from Indianan where “the KKK was started”.
Shout FOIA! If Sarah Palin’s emails are subject to the microscope, so should be Mitty’s/Patrick’s. Fight for the same access to these via the open-records request.
I sure don't recall those mythical halcyon days when FReepers engaged in robotic unity.
And thank God for that!
I don't get all the hand-wringing lately.
Because Alaska law is different? Because Palin changed it?
What I suspect is that Republican primary voters are so uninformed that Romney will be name they recognize on the ballot and will therefore nominate him!
Of course, because we were such a much better site when Slick Willard’s paid agents, sycophants and trolls were spamming this website with lies and debunked talking points ad infinitum and their attacking respected FReepers with vicious personal slanders.
I pray that Romney doesn’t get the nomination. I hated voted for McCain but did so because of Palin. I honestly don’t know if I can vote for him. I really, really, really cannot stand him.
Romney is an idiot.
Every time I see those photos I see red. Now I will be in a bad mood for at least half the day.:P
I swore I'd never vote for McCain for dog catcher, but we held our noses and did. If the party insiders pull this crap again I just may write in who I want.
| "But the details of the event are more than unseemly - they may, in fact, be illegal. Massachusetts's animal cruelty laws specifically prohibit anyone from carrying an animal "in or upon a vehicle, or otherwise, in an unnecessarily cruel or inhuman manner or in a way and manner which might endanger the animal carried thereon. "An officer for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals responded to a description of the situation saying "it's definitely something I'd want to check out." The officer, Nadia Branca, declined to give a definitive opinion on whether Romney broke the law but did note that it's against state law to have a dog in an open bed of a pick-up truck, and "if the dog was being carried in a way that endangers it, that would be illegal."
"Dog on Roof? What Was It Like for Romney's Pooch? - Scientists Say Dog Likely Experienced Wind-Whipped, Uncomfortable Trip - "Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family's hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and attached it to the station wagon's roof rack. e'd built a windshield for the carrier, to make the ride more comfortable for the dog,".. Jordan Kaplan, the owner of Petaholics, a dog walking service in New York City,
"Romney's dog - This is a distinction Mitt Romney probably could do without, but he is surely the first presidential candidate to be attacked for putting a dog with diarrhea in a carrier and tying it to the top of a station wagon. Romney's defense: Seamus liked it. [like the citizens under Romney's RomneyCARE, etc.?] "
"As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. ''Dad!'' he yelled. ''Gross!'' A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who'd been riding on the roof in the wind for hours. As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway."
Romney's bad behavior Exposed by Seamus
"Romney Loses Nomination Over Dog Abuse? - Romney was traveling that summer with his wife, five sons, and Seamus to his parent's cottage on Lake Huron. But hours into the ride, Seamus apparently suffered diarrhea, which ran down the back window of the car. .David Kravitz wrote on BlueMassGroup, a liberal blog. "It also strikes me as classic Romney: it solves a problem efficiently, in a business-like manner, and with no regard whatsoever for the suffering that the solution may cause."
WTF is wrong with Massachusetts?
I apologize to my fellow FReepers from MA, but WOW I thought Illinois sucked and I've lived here my entire life.
And no Scott Brown is not a conservative.
If you put a shot of Scott Brown and Romney together they'd look like twins...
The RINO line-up is making me uncomfortable but if a strong conservative leader steps forward at the right time noone is going to care about a RINO Romney.
Sort of like when Palin stepped out of the mist and shook things up.
Otherwise, for every card the lefty press plays the right needs to play a card. The left attempted to dig up dirt on Palin and was eclipsed a man-child named Weiner.
You know the left is going to throw everything at the wall to see if something sticks. So, have the buckets ready to wash away whatever they throw.
Im not talking about making stuff up like they do but real stories of dirty dimwits.
Shock and Awe to barrow a phrase.
I am far from a Romney fan, but the endless attacks on him became “the sky is falling - the sky is falling” long ago.
Romney will not be the 2012 nominee. No really serious decisions on the nominee will be made until late fall at the earliest. Wasting time trying to destroy him every day keeps us from our prime duty of teaching the vast unwashed about the benefits of Conservatism. Remember, we do not elect the president. Neither do the DU / far left crowd. The middle dies, and we win only when attract them to our side.
Constant, endless, hate-filled Romny bashing does not bring us more voters. It only brings us disdain from the swing voters we need to attract.
Your tagline answers your question!!
Don’t call them Massholes for nothing!!!
I just tell them that I was brainwashed.
Richardson did the same thing in New Mexico before he left on December 31. Except even the current Governor Martinez (R) couldn't get her hands on needed records to help her decision making. After much posturing, Richardson granted her access to records that he had locked up for many years in the future.
In posting my worries about the emphasis FR seems to have in bashing Romney, I twice said I am not a Romney fan
You use that to claim Romney is my “master.”
I was also going to post my worries that FR seems, in some cases, to have become the hone of some people for whom lucid thought is a problem
I was going to post that worry about some serious nuts and hatera flocking to FR.... but after your post you have made that point better than I ever could.
For someone who claims not to be a fan, you seem unusually preoccupied with concern for an individual who is as antithetical to the principles this website stands for as can be. We’ve also been “bashing” Weiner as well. So should we tone that down, too, lest we offend his supporters ?
“In posting my worries about the emphasis FR seems to have in bashing Romney, I twice said I am not a Romney fan”
Good. Now can we get back to discussing Romney’s stance on abortions, global warming, carbon credits, romneycare and Ted Kennedy, hiding files, and being all things to all people EXCEPT Conservatives.
Why does Romney hate Conservatives?
It's a lie.
ROMNEY ALSO BANNED GUNS...
You ask good questions My point is nothing counts except defeating Obama. Everything else is the semi finals
To defeat Obama, we have to draw in middle of the roaders voters we need to win the 2012 General. I would prefer to spend my time doing that rather than concentrating on the non-electable Romney,,,, who is already dead meat (politically speaking)
Yeah, it is the truth though and it reigns supreme here in Crook County, IL. According to Drudge MLB is warning teams about violence in the city, this city run by Rahm Emanuel!
His solution - 300 more police.
My solution - National Guard with shoot on site orders.
Problem is, no matter what we claim here, he hasn’t been defeated yet. We have to kill that candidacy dead in the primaries before we can advance to the general.
Spell check is handy, but proof reading is our real friend.
Exactly. The battle for Conservatism MUST be won in the primaries before it can be won in the General.
He is the Rudy G of 2012
It's time to promote a C rather than running down the sure loser.
Actually, the people who vote in primaries are among the most informed of the electorate. Most of the people who vote in the general election don’t even know when the primaries take place until after they’re over.
Next time, please, if we have a choice between dumb and dumber like we did in 2008, at least CONSIDER voting third party instead of continuing the RINO reign. Write-in votes are entirely wasted, but the prospect of a third party scares the Republicrat types $#!#less. Why else would the RNC rank-and-file work so hard to act as if they’re integrating the Tea Party’s ideas into the Congressional GOP’s aims?
