With Brown out, GOP mulls Romney energy
(He's back; Mr. RomneyCARE and family for MA Senate))
"Massachusetts Republicans are desperately scrambling to find
a strong Senate candidate to replace Scott Brown,
with some even trying to persuade Mitt Romneys wife or son
to jump into the race to avert another electoral disaster.
... Other GOP leaders also raised the prospect of Mitts eldest son, Tagg,
launching a surprise Senate campaign.
Tagg Romney was a close campaign adviser
and surrogate for his father and is a successful businessman living in Belmont."

As if Romney's and Rove's attacks in 2008 against Gov Palin,
and their meek, vapid (except against conservatives)
campaign in 2012, were not enough.:
Mr. RomneyCARE to pet felon:
"Those stupid conservatives will NEVER have a chance. Ever."
So the GOP Liberals are looking for a Romney candidate that will “not really be campaigning” for the open Senate seat?
Why even worry about Mass.. A GOP Liberal is still a liberal
Deep beneath the Commonwealth, the People are getting angry.
There is a thick vein of conservatism that needs to be scratched.
It happened before; it WILL happen again
All “moderates” do is provide cover as the democrats continue their goose stepping march to full on fascism. The GOP has been moderated into a coma.
anddddd...... Romeny returns to his normal RINO self as he got tired of being “severely conservative”
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
"So you say RomneyCARE, and we say ObamaCARE.
What difference does it make?"
Charisma....... Reagan was elected and acceptable because of his likeability and believability. The lesson of 2012 is that being conservative is not only not enough, it is anathema.
There must a charismatic personality with the voice and message to charm. Wonkish recital of conservative virtues will not prevail in a national election.
If such a person threatens, he is destroyed by the press. Herman Cain is the archetype of that person.
With those glasses, Hillary looks like one of the Hanson brothers from the movie “Slap Shot.”
I've been giving this serious thought as I read all these posts on FR and I see that I am out of step with most Freepers as far as strategy is concerned.
I believe we all desire the same things ultimately and the difference is in strategy how to get there.
Then I think can how can I be this far out of synch on strategy with most Freepers. Now, every Freeper must agree that it will take 51 Republican senators to take control of the US Senate from the Democrats. Now, this is the question I have for Freepers; do you think it more noble to allow Democrats to have perpetual control of the Senate, and even increase their numbers, than to elect less than perfect Republicans?
What is your strategy for taking control of the Senate?
I’ll ask you, too, is it more noble to allow Dems to control the US Senate than to accept less than perfect Republicans? In order to wrest control of the US Senate, we must have 51 Republicans.
Do you think a majority is important?
Just yesterday there was a thread about Alabama being the “most conservative state” in the USA.
Now, that scares me. The most conservative state is 50.6% conservative, not even a full notch over one-half. In every other state, self-identifying conservatives are LESS than half the populace.
For every one American getting angry, there are some number of illegals coming in, getting ID, getting stuff, and voting Democrat. Pretty soon they won’t need dead people to win elections for them.
I see no hope. Conservatives are too in love with the law. They are more law-abiding than liberty-loving and certainly more law-abiding than freedom-fighting.
Some few, damn few, exceptions. The rest, they can think what they like and grumble at their keyboards, but they obediently pay their taxes to this evil government, and that is all, ALL that keeps it alive.
Do you have a viable strategy to get to fifty one?
If they aren't destroyed by the press, they're destroyed by fellow Republicans because NO ONE is good enough.
Again with this crap? The letter behind the name no longer means ANYTHING. A lefty is a lefty.
We now have 45 US senators. How many of the current ones would you keep? How are you going to get to the magical number of fifty one?
