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."

Wonderful. You understand.
A RINO vs a liberal ====> Anticonservative for sure.
Therefore, WE WILL SUPPORT ONLY TRUE CONSERVATIVES.
You actually asked the reasonable question earlier:
In the US Senate, which members are acceptable Conservatives?
There are 26 of them. Of those 26, ZERO would break 40% in MA.
The strategy to retake the Senate and attempt to make it a quasi-conservative body is probably futile, but it will take money, moderates, and a fiscal collapse that cries for conservative Fiscal Policies.
The conservative-only strategy will never work in the Senate. Ever.
Reagan ran on a clear conservative platform despite what the Uriah Heep republicans say. After all they were trying to destroy him till it became apparent that he was winning then they attached themselves to him like a bunch of leeches.
His goal was to do the right thing, theirs was to gain power.
It was Reagan’s conservatism that won over the heavily unionized Reagan Democrats here in Michigan. I personally think that’s why Santorum was able to tie Romney in Michigan when John McCain barely got within 10 percent of Romney here in 08.
We don’t need RINOS to take the senate. In 2014, we have enough DemoRats in red states, it’ll be like open season. We’re also going to primary the hell out of some Manchurian conservatives like Lindsey Graham.
How would you know? It's never been tried. The GOP-E has seen to that.
BTW, I've never seen you on FR before. Welcome to FR.
Do you want to get rid of Democrat control?
Nonsense. You’ve still gotten rid of Majority Leader Harry Reid and you’ve also gotten rid of Obamacare.
Moderates don't vote with the Conservatives. Look at the Hagel hearings. He's a dunce! He couldn't put two words together to make a coherent sentence. He's anti-American and guess what? Our Moderates are going to put him through. Even McCain, as tough as he was at the hearing, hasn't committed to voting against him, as of this morning.
The moderates don't help us or vote with us so why elect them? Geez you are dense....or a liberal pushing a liberal agenda.
You certainly are trolling a lot today, Tagg.
I WOULD SUPPORT A CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRAT over
any lying, liberal, backstabbing, RINO.
You are wrong. First, do you propose surrendering to Democrats? I am very much of the Wm F Buckley school of thought that we always vote for the most conservative—than can win. That means always have the goal of defeating the Democrat with the most conservative person we can get.
The real problem is these idiots who don’t care how liberal a candidate is as long as he has the right letter behind his name. Conservatives have been the ones to make all the compromises to elect moderates all along and all they can do is scream “PURIST!” at anyone who won’t cross a certain line.
Conservatives here in Michigan happily accepted very moderate Thadeus McCotter till he self destructed with the help of a few sleazy staffers. Fortunately he was replaced by a tea partier who is showing some real fight as a freshman.
I supported Pete Hoekstra despite his moderate tendencies. Unfortunately he ran a milquetoast campaign against Stabenow. Plus he was attacked by “moderates” when he commented that the 17th amendment has been a disaster (He was absolutely correct)
How do you figure that???
Suppose you're right that we don't know how the RINO will vote, the difference is that with the RINO we have the chance of them voting right where with the RAT, they will NEVER vote right. I'll take a 50 percent over a zero percent anytime.
With a liberal demoRAT you know he/she/it is going to stab you any chance they get. With a demoRat-lite repub liberal you will get stabbed when you least expect it, ala SC justice.
Mr. RomneyCARE CREATED ***himself*** both gay marriage
and ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE. And he tanked Massachusetts,
and gave Obama TWO (2) terms.
You like that, Tagg. Right?
Thank you for your reasonableness.
I would agree with your thinking of preferring a 51 seat RAT conservative senate to a 51 seat RINO Senate but do you think that is EVER going to happen?
