Gomez game plan a GOP loser
Boston Herald, by Michael Graham

Original Article

Posted By:John c, 6/26/2013 6:15:07 AM

Well, that was fun. Another election, another moderate/independent/“I’m not one of those” Republican nominees goes down to defeat in Massachusetts. If it’s true that insanity is doing the same thing again and again but expecting a different result, the Massachusetts GOP should spike the lemonade at its July Fourth BBQ with Thorazine. According to the data available at Wikipedia.com, there have been 102 elections for federal and statewide office in Massachusetts in the 21st century. After yesterday, the Republicans’ record? Two wins, 100 losses.

Comments:
Markey has been in MD so long he needs a road map to get to his mother´s house, still the machine and low info voters carry him.

Last night my wife and I decided to move from Mass over this last straw. We are selling our boat and our house, and ´retiring´ 10 years early to Hutchinson Island Fla. We fly down July 10 to buy a place. Reservations already made. Screw these morons in this state. I will take my business to Fla, and hire people there. I am informing my employees and local clients today, and telling them exactly why.

Wise move, #3. That´s about the only way to escape the insanity of Massachusetts, Illinois, Michigan, California, etc. Let the liberals live with the hell that they have created.

Besides, housing in Florida is dirt cheap right now.

Gomez was a terrible candidate.
Yes he was good looking, yes he had a spanish last name, yes he spoke spanish, yes he was a Navy Seal ... but that was it.
All his policy positions in the important issues were no different than the liberal´s.
Just watch his interview last Sunday with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday: he said he would be happy to become the ninth member of the Gang of Eight, he said he supports gay marriage, he said TWICE that he was embarrassed that Republicans didn´t pass a gun control law.
Personally I am very happy he lost.

Gosh, this article rings true for California too. The same parameters for choosing candidates that do nothing but lose, but that´s so much better than a strong conservative that is sure to lose. Whaaat?
To paraphrase G.K. Chesterton, "Its not that Republicanism has been tried and failed, its that Republicanism hasn´t been tried at all."

FL will welcome #3. We have had an influx of libs who want to "level the playing field" (to their benefit of course) and we need more true conservatives. Marco fooled many, but has lost favor by his flip-flop.
The GOP cannot seem to accomplish much beyond sending letters and calls begging for more and more money. The GOP is our only hope, but requires a backbone! Stand up firmly against the Evil Democrats & Islamists!

I design and implement medical imaging and reporting computer networks. Ironically, Obamascare has business booming. 99% of all our work is done remotely. It´s Florida because I can walk out my sliding door to my dock, and by into sailfish in less than an hour. (we are moving within sight of St. Lucie inlet)I love TX, but it doesn´t matter the politics anymore. Screw them all. I am taking my money, and my toys, and going to Fla to fish, and the die.

National GOP, are you listening?

This is what you get when you say "me too" and think republicans and run a big government better than a demonrat.

Face it, we are doomed when there isn´t a helluva lot of difference from the libs. Taxachusetts, your once great "Commonwealth" did not learn the lessons of history that big government socialism does not work.

I heard former Sen. Scott Brown on Fox & Friends earlier today and he was angry at the Republicans that stayed home. Gee, why vote for another turncoat? Just because the guy has an R by his name does not make him any different than his opponent. They were almost identical.

Until the GOP realizes that conservatism is the only way they will win elections, they are done - even in Mass. If we lose, at least we have principles. Unlike the losers in the "Gang of 8". No mas!

Number 13, no the GOP is not listening. As far as they are concerned, I bet, they just think Gomez didn´t go far enough in being liberal. As an opposition party they are pretty much worthless.

Seriously, after this Gang of 8 debacle, I am coming to opinion of why bother. The choice is between Democrat and Democrat lite. I won´t vote for either. Detroit on a nation-wide scale, here we come.

I will never ever understand someone who pretends to be an informed and concerned Republican/GOP/tea party supporting/even an independent voter who cheers when the liberal darling Markey wins over a less-than-perfectly conservative
Gabriel Gomez. What is accomplished by helping Markey to win? Why not just go ahead and openly vote for him instead of staying home and hoping he wins? Not even a Democrat would do that. We can each sit back and dream of our perfect candidate, but my perfect is not your perfect or that person´s perfect. Meanwhile, Markey won a seat we might could have sneaked into.

I wasn´t impressed by Gomez. But he´s far better than Markey. My fathers side of the family came from Canton and Duxbury. Both went red per usual. Most towns in Massachusetts went red or pinkish. We need to focus on ideas. Calling Markey pond scum or Warren pocohantas is all good fun, but it does nothing to bring voters to our side. Brown won on a conservative theme. In 2010 he received as many votes as Markey and Gomez combined.

Why should one vote for a liberal Democrat lite candidate when you can vote for a real liberal Democrat?

The wimpy Republicans can´t figure that out, and there is no doubt that will happen with the vast majority of the tens of millions of new foreign born and mostly socialist oriented voters who will eventually emerge from the liberal Democrat path to citizenship provisions in their bogus immigration reform law that is now in the US Senate, if that bill passes.

A person is in custody tonight after police report suspicious bags were found at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street. An eye-witness told the Herald tonight a man dressed all in black and wearing a black veil walked down the middle of Boylston Street, with a backpack on his back, chanting "Boston strong, Boston strong." "He was weird looking," said Matthew VanWinkle. "He was wearing a black veil, a black hat, and no shoes." The bomb squad is now on the scene and police have pushed everyone back.

Kyiv- A recording proving that Russia is backing separatists in eastern Ukraine has surfaced online. The SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) taped the operatives, whose code names are "Nose," "Adler," "Shooter" and "Agath," discussing strategy, weapon stockpiles, and requests for reinforcements. The SBU has identified the number calling the separatists in Ukraine as having a Russian +7 area code. The person with the Russian number asks Shooter to contact him. Later in the conversation, Shooter reports “fighting off the first (Ukrainian) attack” and shooting “some significant (highly-ranked Ukrainian) people."

Frank Armstrong never got the chance to know 8-year-old Martin Richard in this life. Nevertheless, the BPD captain in charge of Area E-18 in Hyde Park keeps a picture of the marathon bombings’ youngest casualty on the wall in his office. The Dorchester boy who loved the Bruins, and the 53-year-old cop, who grew up five houses away from where the Richard family lives, share a bond that is as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming. For nearly 12 hours on that fateful Patriots Day a year ago, Frank Armstrong led a squad of Boston police officers who stood watch over

BOSTON - After taking heat from some of its own over a decision to grant an honorary degree to an advocate for Muslim women who has made comments critical of Islam, Brandeis University withdrew the honor Tuesday night. The university said in a statement that Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali would no longer receive the honorary degree, which it had planned to award her at the May 18 commencement. Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making comments critical of Islam. That includes a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine in which she

About 10 investigators with Boston Fire´s Arson unit this morning entered the four-story brownstone on Beacon Street where six days ago a roaring blaze claimed the lives of two firefighters. The arson investigators entered the building around 10 a.m. On Wednesday, Lt. Edward Walsh and Michael Kennedy died after being trapped in the basement of the 298 Beacon St. building during the roaring 9-alarm blaze. Deputy Chief Joseph Finn, who commanded the firefighters last week and made the decision to pull firefighters from the wind-driven fire, was also on scene.

Neal Mullane of Ladder 18 in South Boston, his own scalp gashed and burned, found himself drawn to the Back Bay firehouse that has become a kind of chapel for his grieving brethren. Mullane, 42, was one of the officers tapped at a moment’s notice to command as the Rapid Intervention Team at the nine-alarm fire. He described the desperate detail to the Herald’s Laurel J. Sweet.

JERUSALEM — The Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad said Thursday it had agreed to halt a wave of rocket fire on Israel, signaling an end to the heaviest fighting between the sides since 2012, though soon after the announcement two rockets fired from Gaza exploded inside Israel. The Islamic Jihad denied it launched the attack and it wasn´t immediately unclear who fired the rockets. Cease-fire declarations have not always been honored by militants and the barrage raised doubts about the cease-fire offer made by Islamic Jihad. The Israeli military said a total of four rockets were fired Thursday from Gaza.

The drum-beating of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference — the GOP’s pre-presidential coming-out party — gave us a glimpse of the Republican future. And for the GOP, the future is bleak. Sen. Rand Paul officially won CPAC’s presidential straw poll. His message of libertarianism plays well with the small government crowd.

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

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
