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."

Much of the reason we are fighting the hard left is that we supported the mushy right in the past. The only way to fight them is to state a clear alternative with no compromises. No federal funding / control of state affairs. Slash tax rates and eliminate all deductions. Trim Presidential and Congressional and Judicial branch power by adhering to the Constitution.
We cannot create middle ground to allow the left to claim that it is "right wing". We need to be right wing in reality.
You are WRONG. It doesn’t matter how conservative is a Democrat if they caucus with the Democrats. This is a matter of mathematics. There must be 51 senators with an R after their names to get rid of a Democrat majority. Those red state dims still vote Democrat and they vote for Harry Reid for Majority Leader. Now if these red states DIMS would vote for a Republican for Majority Leader it would matter, but they won’t. Don’t fool yourself, there’s no such thing as a “conservative” Democrat. I know, I worked in a legislature for years and I got my fill of so-called “conservative” Dims.
I’m not saying it’s not important to get rid of Dems. But how does it help us if we have Republicans who vote with them? Look at the RINO contingent from New England and all the harm they have done over the years.
I’m with you and there’s one way to get rid of Republican liberals and that is through primaries BUT we must be careful because the ultiimate goal is to get rid of Democrats first.
Great. Name one. The problem is that the theory doesn't bear out in reality. Are there any democrats willing to stand up for the Second Amendment ("shall not be infringed")?
There are, but they are rare. You wish to tie us to the R party that stands for nothing. That is a losing strategy. We simply need to promote conservatism and support conservative candidates. We need to make sure there are conservative choices in the primaries (both parties) and support them.
Of course Hagel is a dunce, so what? That doesn't mean all Republicans are dunces.
If we expect perfection, we're creating unrealistic expectations--we go for the best we can get.
We chose Scott Brown to get rid of Obamacare but got a lot of crappy votes in return: http://votesmart.org/candidate/key-votes/18919/scott-brown#.UQ0120ITusM He had lots of votes for pork which sustains the problem. The problem is specifically big government which pushes liberalism.
First, we MUST have a majority. The party in the majority controls the whole agenda--they get to appoint the committee heads and control the leadership.
There is no substitute for a majority--NONE--we must have the majority or we have Democrats running rough shod over us.
Realistically, what can we expect when RATS control the US Senate and we have this Marxis/Muslim in the WH?
Mitt RomneyCARE (D, Shapeshifter): "I'm not running as the Republican view or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.
(Backstabber Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldnt make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
There are only two teams on the field and that is the Republican team and the Democrat team and whether we like it or not, this is the system we have—there is no other.
There are authentic conservatives, ...
and phonies and trolls (like yourself, Tagg).
True but could you have done any better? Do you think Elizabeth Warren is preferable?
I believe that all Americans deserve health care coverage, but I am opposed to Obamacare, voted to repeal it and will continue to support its repeal in Congress. With its higher taxes and cuts to Medicare, Obamacare is a bad deal for Massachusetts. Until we are able to repeal the entire bill, I will continue working to get rid of the worst components. I have introduced multiple bills to repeal the 2.3 percent medical device tax that would crush the more than 200 medical device companies in our state that provide thousands of good-paying jobs. I believe states should be allowed to implement health care reform that works best for them on an individual basis, like we have done here in Massachusetts, without raising taxes or cutting care to seniors."
This is a quote from Scott Brown's website.
Now you understand, hopefully.
NO MORE RINOs. NEVER. EVER.
Romney (Carpetbagger shapeshifter, D, RINO):
I'm very clear I think, to the people across the Commonwealth
my "R" didn't stand so much for Republican as it does for reform."

"A political party cannot be all things to all people.
It must represent certain fundamental beliefs
which must not be compromised to political expediency
or simply to swell its numbers."
-- President Ronald Reagan
I wish the trolls would go back to DU. This one has been spouting nonsense far too long...
