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.
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.
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.
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.
Chris Matthews‘ exclusive interview with President Barack Obama was #1 in the 25-54 demo at 7pm and the second highest-rated show in the demo for all of cable news, despite airing during other network’s live coverage of Nelson Mandela’s death. With 298K viewers in the demo, MSNBC’s Hardball beat Fox’s On The Record with Greta Van Susteren, which had 218K, in the 7pm time slot. The only show with more viewers in the demo than Hardball was Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, which had 405K viewers at 8pm. With 1.296M total viewers, Matthews came within 3K of Greta Van Susteren, who
ALBANY, NY –A New York-built American fighter that´s one of the few remaining still-airworthy planes to survive the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is being donated to a Massachusetts-based organization that flies World War II aircraft at living history events across the nation. Robert Collings, executive director of the Stow, Massachusetts-based Collings Foundation, said that the purchase of the Curtiss P-40B Warhawk from an aviation museum in England was completed this week. The plane will be disassembled and shipped to the United States, where it eventually will fly over Buffalo and other cities, with plans to participate in the 75th
OBSERVATION POST OUELLETTE, South Korea— U.S. Vice President Joe Biden stepped foot into the no-man´s land between North and South Korea on Saturday, peering out at the furtive nation hours after it released an American tourist the regime had detained for more than a month. Surrounded on three sides by North Korea, Biden and his granddaughter, Finnegan, looked through binoculars at the enemy soil less than 100 feet away. On the other side of the demarcation line, North Korean troops could be seen staring back. "Welcome to the edge of freedom," said Lt. Col. Daniel Edwan of the U.N. Command
Nelson Mandela is being rightly eulogized as a great force for peace and freedom. Though a deeply flawed man, his moral growth allowed him to voluntarily relinquish power, much the same as George Washington. This is an example being taken to heart on the African continent, which may now be fitfully entering a more hopeful era, in contrast to the 50-year bloody disaster of post-colonialism. What won´t be talked about much is that this was only possible because the West won the Cold War and allowed disillusioned Marxists like Mandela in South Africa (or Gorbachev in the Soviet Union) to
An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained in North Korea for more than a month for alleged hostile acts is on his way home after being "deported" to China. North Korean state media said Saturday that 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. "I´m very glad to be on my
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Friday that the enrollment records for roughly a quarter of all the people who signed up for health insurance on its website in October and November could contain errors, raising questions about whether those consumers would get coverage in time to pay for their medical care next month. Even now, the administration said, it may be sending incomplete or erroneous information to insurers for one in every 10 people who enroll. The disclosure added yet another complication to a long list of technical troubles that have hampered the rollout of President Obama’s health care
BRYAN, Texas- Holiday cheer in Texas has become even sweeter thanks to a giant gingerbread house that has broken a world record for confectionary construction. Coming in at 35.8 million calories and covering an area of 2520 square feet, or nearly the size of a tennis court, the 21-foot high gingerbread house in Bryan, Texas, 90 miles northwest of Houston, has been declared the biggest ever by Guinness World Records. The house, with an edible exterior mounted over a wooden frame, was built by the Traditions Club near Texas A&M University to help raise money for a trauma center at the regional
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
