With Brown out, GOP mulls
Romney energy

Boston Herald, by Joe Battenfeld

Massachusetts Republicans are desperately scrambling to find a strong Senate candidate to replace Scott Brown, with some even trying to persuade Mitt Romney’s wife or son to jump into the race to avert another electoral disaster. The former GOP senator’s decision to stay out of the June 25 special election surprised and angered some Republican leaders, who said it will make it much harder to beat a Democratic opponent without Brown on the ballot. “I’ve had several people call me and ask about Ann Romney,” Ron Kaufman, a longtime friend

I have to go with Brown on this one. He faced an electorate who should have appreciated his energy and moderate voting patterns (good for that area), but they voted for a lying idiot. Why should he expend time and effort on such people again? If he lost this upcoming election, his career would be toast. He needs to take a breather.

This is Massachusetts. Electing a republican is an anomaly. Don´t throw a Romney into this one. Save the political capital.

Mitt(not his wife or son)should run for that seat.He should have run when Kennedy died.

But,I suppose he considers that too low of a position.

#3, Romney ran against Kennedy. I´m absolutely sure he doesn´t consider the senate beneath him.

No mention in this article of Sean Bielat. But Bielat (if you don´t know who he is, Google him)may be out of politics permanently after losing to Barney Frank and then to the Kennedy kid.

Perhaps Weld would have a shot, though he just moved back here from NY and it makes him look like a carpetbagger/opportunist.

Kerry Healy, who was Romney´s lt. gov., would make a fine senator, but I don´t know if she has a shot. Richard Tisei is good, too, but lacks statewide name recognition.

I think Brown want to be governor. If that´s his intent, I wish him the very best.

None of them should run. I agree with #1. Massachusetts has a majority of voters who are clearly too stupid to vote for the better candidate. Why waste all that campaign money on a sure loser?

Sorry, I meant #2. To reiterate, I´m quite sure Romney doesn´t consider the senate beneath him.

This just in... Claiming that the Boston Red Sox have always been her favorite team, Hillary Clinton has just announced a Massachusetts "Listening Tour". It is said that the former "Kennedy Seat" is the only seat in the Senate wide enough for America´s best Secretary of State. Expected to run against her on the GOP side and matching her wit-for-wit, is longtime Boston bar patron Cliff Claven.

Perhaps the two candidates who would garner the most Dem votes in this perverse state are Obama´s two illegal relatives. His aunt lives in Boston public housing and is fully conversant on Medicaid, food stamps and other welfare programs. His uncle works in a liquor store and is personally quite knowledgable about DUI arrests and court appointed attorneys. Since Massachusetts will only elect RINOs, who better to be senator than either of these two Kenyans who grew up near rhinos

Most importantly, since Obama´s # 1 priority is amnesty for illegals, who better to debate this issue than two illegal immigrants who have continuously ignored ICE deportation orders.

If only the GOP thought outside the box.

I believe Governor Romney has given us his best effort and I think he deserves a well-earned rest from the political fires.

We need new, fresh, undeniably and consistently fiscally conservative faces. Can you say Senator Cruz x as many as we can? Should we be blessed with a good President again, Romney should be asked to serve in the Cabinet or Fed.

My guess is that the Romney family *as a unit* is looking at places outside the US, with plenty of Mormons, detachment from what is going on here and better economics, to go settle. The ugliness shown in this campaign and the physical attacks on conservatives in blue states (read Howie Carr´s other article) has ratcheted up to the point where I personally am scared to say a WORD except among whom I know are ´safe´ people and in safe places. Don´t be surprised if the Brown family is preparing to exit Massachusetts.

If any of them run it should be Ann Romney. She´s the one who had to cajole & push him the hardest to try to get his heart into the election, so at least I know she´d really want it.

Ann Romney is a wonderful lady, but she has a medical condition that could be exacerbated by this kind of thing.

Absolutely #16. Because Ann is not a whiner don´t get the impression MS doesn´t take a terrible toll
Scott Brown tried the Senate and reaped the scorn of the never satisfied GOP perfection wing so why would he want a repeat.
The Governor´s seat may be a different direction because they have the real power now.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

SANTA FE, N.M. —A national political magazine has released secret audio recordings of Gov. Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin. The article featured several recordings of the governor. Some believe what Martinez is heard saying could jeopardize her political aspirations. The recordings were published by Mother Jones, who said they’re from four years ago. The reporter said his article sheds light on a side of Martinez the public has never seen before, a

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

   

 



 
Former US president joins

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
