The Senator from the People’s Republic of Massachusetts is at it again. It was only a year and a half ago; he was the darling of our Tea Party movement. He excited the Tea Party movement and conservatives everywhere. Tea Party members gave him money, worked his campaign and even did phone banks for him from hundreds of miles away from the Bay State. He became number 41. He was the 41st Republican Senator and his presence denied Democrats the ability to break a Republican filibuster. Conservatives were elated. The celebrations knew no bounds. Even the manufacturer of a line of fountain pen inks created new ink that they called “Brown 41” in his honor.
Brown was immediately compared to Reagan and there were even suggestions he run for President. There were a few of us who understood what we were getting. We were getting a 41st Republican Senator. We were not getting another Reagan.
Unfortunately, for those of us who knew what Scott Brown really was, he has lived down to our expectations.
In his latest sell out of those who put him in, he wrote a letter to the Republican leadership, repeating the tired old liberal line that the budget cuts the GOP is pushing, disproportionately hurt “low income families and seniors.” Translation, let’s not do anything to the welfare state.
Brown goes further to object to “wholesale reductions in spending.”
What is it about Massachusetts? It is a nice state and most of the people I have met from there are fairly decent people. Why must they continue to send lunatics to Congress?
Memo to Scott Brown. If you think budget cuts “disproportionately affect “low income families and seniors,” what do you think is going to happen when we have an economic collapse?
Memo to Scott Brown. Do you want to see our future? Go look at Greece or Portugal or Spain. They have a debt crisis. How do you think they got into a debt crisis? Since you were once a model and models are not known for their heavy duty thinking capabilities, I’ll give you a hint. Debt gets you into a debt crisis. Massive debt is the realization of Margaret Thatcher’s words, when she said, “the problem with socialism is eventually, you run out of other people’s money.”
Brown is a politician, and that is meant in the worst sense of the word politician. He knows self-preservation and self-promotion. He has aligned himself with the RINO crowd, which has no beliefs, other than getting reelected and appeasing whatever base he thinks will help him get reelected. From a crass point of view, that is working. Rumors are the Democrats are not even going to put a top-flight candidate against him in 2012 because his ratings within that state are so good.
So Scott Brown used the Tea Party to get elected. Now he no longer needs this movement and we are tossed under the bus.
The Democrats will not give Scott Brown an opponent. Why should they? He votes like a Democrat. Perhaps the Massachusetts Tea Party will step up with someone to challenge him in 2012.
That, unlike Scott Brown, is not an April fool’s joke.
A man once said " Hey listen,,,by trade,,I'm a Politician,,,that means I'm a Liar & a Cheat,,,when I'm not kissing babies,,I'm stealing their lolly pops" Sure,,it was only a line in a movie,,,but it is sooooo fitting,,,it might as well be a reality for all of our 535 in D.C.
So,,,,ladies & gents,,if Scott W. of Mass. turns his back on us,,,then it behooves us to reciprocate & turn our backs on him.
To paraphrase MLK Jr,,,,"VOTE THEM ALL OUT,,VOTE THEM ALL OUT,,GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY,WE MUST VOTE THEM ALL OUT.
"Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often and for the same reason." --Robin Williams in Man of the Year
I think we would be better off treating the legistlature like jury duty. You do your time and come home. You should not get a career out of it or a pension. Go and do your part and then go back home and live with the laws you wrote and voted for.
From his first vote he showed us what he is made of. Fool me once shame on you. It won't happen again.
Dawn, I'm really tired of this God forsaken State it went from"Welcome to Massachusetts" where we are making it! to "Welcome to Taxachusetts" where we are taking it! Now does'nt that feel Good! Yea Right!!!
Tea Party Vet
That bastard stole my money! I sent him money when I couldn't really afford to. Then, after he was elected, he denied the Tea Party was a major player in getting him elected. I get his 'begging for more money' pamplets in the mail. If you read his propaganda, he claims to be the conservative 2nd coming of Christ.
I'll send twice as much this time to whoever the CONSERVATIVE is that runs against him. %$#& him! AND HIS TRUCK HE RODE IN ON!
