Scott Brown moving to New Hampshire
Washington Post ^ | December 17, 2013

Posted on 12/17/2013 5:45:43 PM PST by SMGFan

Former senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) is selling his home in Massachusetts and moving to New Hampshire — perhaps the clearest sign yet that he's serious about running for Senate in the Granite State two years after losing his seat in its neighbor to the south.

I know he thinks the GOP needs to be more inclusive of gay marriage and abortion supporters.

He was a square peg in a round hole when people tried to lump him in the the Tea Party. The association benefited him, but once in office he proved to be a standard MA Liberal.

Fortunately for him, NH is no longer a Conservative bastion, so he might get elected there.

IF he had only kept his word to be a conservative,
then he would have been Senator.

I don’t think the conservative activists here will be too friendly towards this carpetbagger. He should stay in the People’s Republic and run for office there if he’s so desperate for political power.

In 2009:
MA Independents were a little tired of old, dead Ted Kennedy, and they were ready for something new.
MA Conservatives thought they finally had a Conservative candidiate and they came out in large numbers.
MA Liberals weren't used to fighting for Ted Kennedy's seat, and they were caught off guard.

Brown won the seat.

In 2012:
MA Independents didn't find Brown compelling.
MA Conservatives knew he wasn't a Conservative, and they stayed home.
MA Liberals got majorly pumped about Elizabeth Warren: a liar, a lawyer who practiced without a license, a committed communist -- they knew she was the right choice to push their agenda of destruction and they eagerly swamped the polls.

Brown started shopping for a house in another state.

just another typical career politician who thinks he is important.

Mr. Brown there was a time when I was cheering for you, no longer and I’m sure many, many feel as I do...you betrayed us.

so move where ever you like, American voters won’t be with you..

Do I care about Scott Brown’s moving anywhere? The answer is NO. Another Masshole moving to NH? Who really can care?
OK, I feel sorry for the NH people, sorta...

Eh, I’m not really big on this. I’ve defended Brown before, and were he still Senator in Mass., I’d do so again.*** I don’t dig the carpetbagger thing, though. And I have to think New Hampshire has at least a few decent candidates of their own.

***(He was the best any of us could realistically hope for given the realities of Massachusetts’ voter makeup. He had a higher ACU rating than Indiana’s Dick Lugar or either of the Ladies from Maine, despite being from one of the bluest states in the union. He may have been a RINO, but as my grandpa used to say: “half a loaf is better than none...and a hell of a lot better than a crazed Marxist who thinks she’s an Indian princess.”)

Well he came from Maine, so he had moved into Mass.
Actually in America, I think that’s still allowed.

Ah, you are a compassionate Republican! Yes, it is nice that politicians can move where ever they think the their election is possible and better yet, get the okay from the locals... Much better than facing their own constituents though since they did not seem to want to vote for them.

Of course it is America - I would think though that normal folks would wonder about that. It’s all about politics these days...

Howie Carr defends him. Are Scott Brown’s parents from NH?

He would be more conservative than Ayotte on some issues. He voted down the Dream Act.

I wonder what his stance on amnesty is. I think he interviewed Rubio on Fox and gave him softballs. When I saw him debate Warren he was not that much of a hardass. Saying that Harry Reid won’t let any amnendments on bills and forces it through.

He could wait until 2016 and have the battle of the RINOs with Ayotte.

I don’t like carpetbaggers whether they have a (D) or an (R) next to their name.

“I don’t like carpetbaggers whether they have a (D) or an (R) next to their name.”

Well, we have two here in California, Boxster (Brooklyn, NY) and Pelousey (Baltimore, MD). Unfortunately, Fineswine is “home grown!”

Both Massachusetts U.S. Senators are from out of state. Senator Markey lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and Elizabeth Warren is from Oklahoma.

“Both Massachusetts U.S. Senators are from out of state. Senator Markey lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and Elizabeth Warren is from Oklahoma.”

And now Brown is going to move to New Hampshire to see if he can continue his Senatorial “gig” from there. We are beset with a “ruling class” that are the highest paid migrant workers in the country (maybe not ahead of School Superintendents though). But they are all basically the same. They all think that they are the only one’s “qualified” to run our government, and that if we would only capitulate our freedom to them, our “lives” would be oh so much better. It all started out in the Northeastern States where these cretins were originally bred. Then they proceeded to $Hit in their own nests so they had to “sally forth” and corrupt most of the rest of the country like a bunch of spoiled children. The Liberal/Marxist/RAT party is the party of “spoiled brats” who have the mistaken idea that somehow they are a whole lot smarter than the rest of us.
