Republican hopes for retaking control in Washington, D.C., will rely heavily on a red tide in bluest New England, according to GOP bigwigs, who today are showcasing one of their leading White House hopes — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who doubles as a poster child for breaking the Democratic vise grip.

Birds of a feather flock together. Is it any wonder that Christie and his fellow RINOS gravitate to the blue zone?

GOP doesn’t have a future anywhere if they don’t make up their minds to stand for something.

GOP sees rosy future in blue New England ,

Meanwhile I see a very purple or lilac future for the Republicans as they change more and more to make the NY Times and Washington Post happy.

That’ll be great. They’re going to need a start as they lose Texas to amnesty

This is such bull. I live in MA. The establishment republicans cream their pants over “New England-style” republicans such as Scott Brown, Lincoln Chafee (now a democrat), Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, etc.

Last November Richard Tisei, a gay republican state senator was soundly defeated. This same worthless republican was also the lieutentant-governor nominee, chosen by worthless moderate Charlie Baker who was also soundly defeated in 2010.

Conservatives can win in New England if they run as such but not these worthless moderates because the democrats will out-liberal them every time.

Hate to break it to them, but New Jersey is not in New England.

Except possibly for New Hampshire (and even *that* may be a stretch),New England is absolutely,completely and irrevocably lost to true conservatives.One example of what I'm saying...Ronald Reagan carried Massachusetts in ‘80 *and* ‘84.If last year,OTOH,it was Karl Marx vs Reagan I promise you that Marx would have taken 66% of the vote.

This is the same state where they allow abortions and pro fag stuff, right? How can a Pubbie’ win there unless they are as RINO as Mclame.

And then there was Gabe Gomez, RINO for senate, who went campaigning with his young son at gay pride events. He was more liberal than a lot of the old style MA democrats still robotically pulling the lever for "D".

Yes, I’m sure people in Maine will warm right up to the GOP after it screwed over their delegates at the 2012 convention just to prove they could do it and get away with it.

Oh, yeah. Forgot about Gomez. Totally worthless candidate. But he was pushed and funded by the Scott Brown crony who is now head of the MA republican party.

::::rolls eyes:::: If Christi is the kind of Republican we can expect from the NE, then what's the difference if the R's or the D's take control of Congress? (Hint: none)

Any further confusion as to why this party is dead? The party "leaders" are only interested in cutting deals with the Democrats and could care less what their policies do to this country and our freedom. I used to think that the GOP had some sort of grand, stealthy plan to produce a governing majority, but I now see that their only dedicated to making sure that conservatives control nothing in this country.

That has become glaringly apparent. And here is their current standard-bearer, "Boss Christie":

Tisei lost by 1%, hardly a “sound defeat.” Still, he would’ve been a Trojan Horse if he had won (now they’re pimping another gay leftist RINO, DiMaio, out in California for a House seat). If Cap’n McQueeg and Slick Willard couldn’t carry New England, another liberal phony like Corpulent Christie won’t either.

Reagan also easily won VT in both elections. We usually blame transplants for the electoral mess here but something has fundamentally changed here. I think it is welfare addiction. When the farmers got on the government tit I knew it was trouble.

yep.

I spent weeks up there with the caucuses. Assumed that the delegate eviction went over real well.

No clue who Coombs is. And I didn’t hear that Tisei was running again. He just got married, dontcha know! He’ll lose again.

You gotta love a party that fouls it’s own nest with presidential nominees that can’t deliver either of their own states and goes out of it’s way to alienate as many people as possible.
