MA-Sen. 2010: The Lesson Of Brown? (a RINO who supported Romneycare, Sotomayor, abortion)
The Atlantic ^ | 2010-01-15

Posted on 01/15/2010 9:51:31 AM PST by rabscuttle385

Frum sees him as an antidote to the Tea Party madness:

Strong on defense and school choice, opposed to the Obama administration’s signature initiatives, Brown voted in favor of Mitt Romney’s health plan in Massachusetts. He describes himself as pro-choice (subject to reasonable limitations), accepts gay marriage in Massachusetts as a settled fact, and told the Boston Herald editorial board he would have voted to confirm Sonia Sotomayor.

David Frum knows conservatives are backing Scott Brown. I think he pulled that out of his ass.

I dunno. McLame is supporting Brown, which does lend some credence to Frum’s allegations.

This race is a referendum on ObamaCare and one party supermajority rule, nothing more and nothing less.

As long as he wins and then crshes Barry and the Dems hopes of shoving ObamaCare down our collective throats, I’ll worry about the rest of his garbage carry-on afterwards.

It is absolutely stunning how FREEPERS are trading principles over a win. Just two months ago, everyone was swearing NEVER to support a RINO and here we are...very tragic and sad. One positive...I don’t have to be in the position to vote for this election. I was unfortunately in the position when voting for Senator of Pennsylvania years back when I had to vote for the Scottish Guy :) However, there was not the screaming NO RINOs back then. Today I would never vote for Arlen Specter!!!

Is Frum truly so delusional that he sees Brown as a Tea Party “antidote” rather than as an example of just how far Tea Party sentiment has moved Massachussetts electoral politics rightward toward the center?

Brown’s a decent guy who’s wrong on a few items, but it’s less about Brown than it is about kicking the Kennedy cult, the lockstep media, and the Obamanation to the curb.

Still better than Coakley or Kennedy. No one is deluded that he is a perfect Conservative, they just see the big picture strategy and realize he is heads and tails better than the competition and breaking the dems super-majority will stop the move left better than almost anything else now.

Oh, he's got some warts, that's for sure. But if he'll de-rail this disasterous power grab by the D's, we need to support him, just with the knowledge that this guy is far from perfect.

No one is trading principles, they are simply seeing the larger strategic picture in relation to their principles. This is chess, not checkers.

I think in this case, assuming Brown is a RINO, there is no choice but to support him. He is our only immediate hope to put the brakes on the Obama agenda.

Why do you 0-bots spend every day spamming every possible thread here telling us how we all should be so upset at the GOP yet have never said even a single word critical of Obama on anything,?

You posting history indicates your posturing as a "Conservative/" is specious. You only direct your outrage one direction and that direction never involves attacking the Leftists for anything.

Everything is relative. Brown is much more liberal than we would like, but he is infinitely preferable to the Satanic Martha Kookly.

Are you expecting something different from Massachusetts? Some RINOs are inevitable.

A Free Republic type conservative cannot win in Massachusetts and cannot win in at least 10 other states, no way, no how. This is a fact that is true as 1+1=2. If Brown wins this coming Tuesday then the 60 vote filibuster proof that the democrats have in the Senate will be broken. This is by itself is an extremely important thing that we can achieve to stop socialism.

I am not sure if I would care if Brown himself personally ripped a baby out of a woman’s womb.

It’s Massachusetts, and a conservative won’t win. Period.

Never.

That said, he is center-right, and that’s good enough for me.

As long as he is not as liberal as Snowe or Collins that is. They are my limits. I can take McCain or something, but they are too much.

Sen. Brown is the antidote to Frum’s and Romney’s
poisoning of Election2008.

Of course RINOs are wrong, but would you rather have Martha Coakley in that position, esp. at this time?
