Never say never. A great ticket for 2016 would be Warren/Kennedy III. They both won and Kennedy won by a landslide stepping up to fill the shoes of the great Barney Frank. People really support JK3's ideas and policies.
#3219 Nov 7, 2012
Would you be kind enough to tell us how much experience you think they have to take on that level of public service or are you just trying to be funny?
#3220 Nov 7, 2012
Better yet, tell us what JK3s great ideas are. If hi last name was Jenkins he wouldn't have gotten 5% of the vote.

Would be nice if foodstamps were as hard to apply for and get as building permits
#3222 Nov 7, 2012
Senator Warren even said JK3 will be great and fight for the middle class and women. Senator Warren is looking forward to working with JK3 on womens rights issues.

Now that Obama has won re-election, the Dow is down over 300. Another recession is here. Taxes are going way up and before January 2013. Brace yourselves for 3 more years of deficits and overspending. Unemployment, welfare rolls and foreclosures are going up too. Congrats democrats on a well fought race on the issues. For most of you, reality will never sink in.

All kidding aside...this isn't a game we're playing...real people's families are impacted by the people making these decision and/or not making decisions. You and I were not playing golf and can just play another game to see who wins next time.
The results from the election setup our government in exactly the same configuration it has been for the last two years.
People have argued that Bush made a mess, but history shows that during his 8 years in office, we had a low unemployment rate with both houses and the Whitehouse under Republican control. I didn't advocate for that because there are no balances in that configuration, but our country had jobs for everyone that wanted to work...the last 2 years with Bush, we replaced republicans in both houses with Democrats, and that is when the shit started. Many things were said by Democrats with the intention of getting Bush out of office.
Obama was elected with a high unemployment rate and both houses under Democrat control..again, I do not advocate for that because there is no balance. What didn't the Democrats do? They didn't do anything about jobs and they did nothing about a budget for congress. We replaced Democrats in the House to create some balance, but Obama and the Senate Democrats aren't interested in working with Republicans, they are interested in doing whatever they want to whomever they want, and they feel they are above the American people.
Our country may have had a chance if we had a Republican President that understands and will make tough decisions, and has a proven history of working in a bipartisan way, along with our Republican House and Democrat Senate. We would have had balance and could potentially move forward.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, but expecting a different result. We have the same makeup for our government as the last two years, with a President that has proven that he has no intentions of working with Republicans.
You may think you won something and I lost something, but the truth is"our country lost". I had high hopes because Romney had a track record of working with Democrats, and Obama has a track record of not working with Republicans.
Noone won anything and we all lose. You can believe what you want to believe, but the only way we will move forward is if the Democrats and Obama stop the partisan BS and actually work with Republicans, and we all know thats not going to happen.
In two years, we will have an opportunity to vote in a bunch of Democrats to replace Republicans in the House, and we know what that got us during Obama's first two years...no jobs and bunches of new mandates for someone to pay for...
So you are very correct that although you and I share many of the same ideals and we care about many of the same things, I see the future from the viewpoint of someone that goes to work each day, talking with people trying to figure out how we will be able to sustain paying for all of Obamas STUFF...you see it from a retirees viewpoint and you may be all set because you had opportunity, but MILLIONS of Americans have no opportunity to make things better for themselves because we have no jobs for them...that is a disgrace and it is the fault of Democrats in control then and now.
I'm glad you feel you won something...good for you.

Since when is experience been a requirement for massachusetts voters to vote for someone? He is a Kennedy...nothing else needs to be said.
#3226 Nov 8, 2012
You keep thinking that, it's still far better than the alternative we were presented with as the last of your kind had us on the brink of another great depression. You just don't know how lucky you are! Now quit slacking off and get back to earning that pay check and paying your taxes like the rest of us had to do.
#3227 Nov 8, 2012
If you do the math JK3 is 32 now and in 2012 he will be 36. Minimum age to be President is 35. Name has nothing to do with his success. He was captain of his lacrosse team in college, a peace corps volunteer and an ADA for both cape cod and middlesex county. I think these facts alone outline his qualifications. Unless you can name another person who has worked so hard and accomplished so much at such a young age on their own.
#3228 Nov 8, 2012
We dumped the guy with a black belt in balancing budgets to keep the guy who just got his first real job 4 years ago.
We deserve what we get,
America has had every opportunity to separate reality from BS
we chose BS
and that's exactly what we deserve.
I truly hope I'm wrong and you are right,
but any amount of independent research (= read more than what you are spoon fed)
Things are going to get much much worse before they get better.
You can't kick the can down the road forever.
#3229 Nov 8, 2012
Little Chuckie Manson worked hard, was great at organizing others, and getting groups of people together at a young age.
Did those facts alone outline a good candidate?
The red headed Kennedy looks like a good kid.
Let him get some experience under his belt before you hand him the keys to the White House,
And my prediction for 2016 will be Deval Patrick vs Chris Christie
#3230 Nov 8, 2012
Let me tell you STAMOS, I see you all around. You in fact are finally going to be held JUSTLY accountable. You and your little group have it coming as Karma will come home to roost where it belongs!
I see you and discuss you with others, we are prepared! You are not as sly as you think. Your little group did illegal and jailable offenses to my family and I .
We were wronged seriously and we will be made right through the courts.
#3231 Nov 8, 2012
Just keep an open mind. If someone is the best at what they do that's the qualification. Tom Brady or Terry Bradshaw, Tiger Woods or Lee Travino etc.. this country has some problems and the world is always changing. Would you rather elect someone who is in his late 50's has been a senator for 20 yrs. and has heard about that interweb and electronic mail or someone with practical knoledge of the world we live in today?
#3232 Nov 8, 2012
JF, I am glad you wrote back to me as I respect and value your opinion. I also fully agree with you on having our government work together in a bipartisan manner which was evidenced by my support for Scott Brown for the Massachusetts Senate. I would be the first one to vote for someone in either party that can make bipartisanship a reality to ensure our country can move ahead positively, so we fully agree on that aspect of our discussion.
You say to me that I see it from a retirees perspective and that is partly true and you say that I am all set and that is also partly true. But you are forgetting that I also have children and grandchildren that I love, care and worry about and the tough decisions that are made today will affect their lives tomorrow not mine.
Additionally, I am also fully aware that there are millions of Americans that are out of work, have lost or will lose their homes, there are Americans that have lost their lives fighting for you and I that will never see their children, I am also aware that big business outsourced jobs out of the U.S of A and I am also aware the spike in gas prices at the pump started to rise four years ago, so I am in tune with the message you are delivering to me. Once again, the one fact you seem to be side-stepping is that all the issues we are discussing here started under, during or as a result under the Bush/Chaneys watch along with some of the decisions made in the Clinton era.
There is no argument in my eyes that when Obama walked into the Oval Office with his lunch bag for his first day of work that he had a mess of a country to work with and I believe with all my heart that all the bipartisanship in world could not have corrected all the years of corporate greed, the start of wars and failure to address America Social Issues that Obama inherited and is still working to resolve.
Now, along comes your hero and you think hes going to save all us Americans from future pain and suffering, wave a magic wand to make nice and create a happy bipartisan family. This I do not believe, while I do believe he worked with his Democratic colleagues while in Massachusetts, he only did so because he was forced to do so or he would have been sitting in the Gov. Office twiddling his thumbs. Its a lot different on the Federal level and he could not survive in that arena with his business background. Your hero is a corporate hit man and outsourcing champion which is demonstrated by his Bain background. Furthermore, he was being bankrolled by some our countrys as Ed Sullivan would say we have ah Really Big Shoe in the businessmen who were not backing him because they liked his smile. We would have seen more of the Bush/Chaney policies and practices reincarnated again in this country to ensure payback to all those who were contributing enormous funds to this mans election, so if I feel good about anything its that this is not going to happen at the expense of the American people.
If you step back and look around the world youll see its also in a real mess, the Middle East, Greece, and Syria just to name a few. They also play an important role in running our country, if you remember the Bush/Chaney Foreign policies failed in that area, our Flags were being burned and even our staunch ally England had uprisings against our leaders at the time burning pictures of them, so I feel good that wont happen again too. Again in stepping back and looking around, SSA and Medicare were put in place to correct a problem, without them the problem will return unless they are replaced with a solid tried and proven solution, this we have not seen from either side of the house, so we need to preserve what we have and not change it for the sake of change so that it will be there for you, your children, mine and theirs.
I know I might not have everything right in my spiel here, but its the way I see it and my heart is in the right place with my convictions. Thanks be to God.

You have been making these threats for a few months now. You are personally pushing me into making a decision to seek justice.
You and your little bunch have been ducking but I see and notice you lurking. I have been in contact with attorneys as the fight has just begun. My family and I have been unjustly harassed.
My brothers health is seriously failing as it begun from the very day that Antonucci pulled his corrupt pen out of his ass and corruptly fired my brother for no cause immediately after consecutive excellent job reviews.
He fired my brother due to the fact that he was my brother. It was a recession and it was just before Xmas. Yes, my brother was devastated and immediately got serious I'll due to the massive stress. What they have done is not honorable!
You can continue to ignore what your little bunch
#3235 Nov 8, 2012
You think your corruption has been shielded? I am in serious poor health. I am in the process of Continueing to seek assistance.
I will die working most likely. My body is hurting. I cannot maintain a normal laboring work life any longer. It is tough to swallow as carpentry is my love. My body struggles through.
I have ms along with other devastating health issues. I have worked my entire life. You come on here and spew your nonsense.
Yes, I have been on a ladder. When I am on that ladder I have serious vision problems. My entire body needs to be tied up in order to be able to live through the agonizing pain levels that I experience.
I continue to push forward but my body is in massive unbearable pain. I keep refusing to lie down and die.
If you think you can bring forward some bullshit as your little group has done a few times already then bring it as this fight may need to be finally brought to the forefront .
You may be able to cause me serious bodily harm but I will never give up. I had to let things go for awhile as it was affecting my parents health and they needed me to assist them as the corruption that your little corrupt group brought forward solely because they were in positions which they could illegally abuse in order to exact their corruption.
I fought them all back. I exposed many of them. Don't think that I have given up my fight.
#3236 Nov 8, 2012
If what you mean by "preserve what we have", you mean to allow things to continue as they are for the sake of "no change", that will not be acceptable to the millions of people without jobs.
You've stated Romney is my hero, but I care little about Romney other than his abilities and his past history. He has a proven track record of starting and running an investment firm that became wealthy in doing investing...am I supposed to support someone that doesn't accomplish anything...if so, I would support Obama.
Romney saved the olympics because they were bleeding money...he wasn't forced to do it and had to work with all kinds of people to get it done. He also didn't take compensation for it although he didn't have to do that.
Romney saved Massachusetts and worked with a state that has consistently shown nothing but disdain for Republicans, but you say he was forced to do it...doesn't matter how he did it...Obama hasn't done it!! Obama has been the most partisan President we've had in a long time!! Romney also didn't take a paycheck for that...
So he is a heartless capitalist that sent jobs overseas, but in two separate instances, he did something very few people would do...he worked on fixing problems but took NO COMPENSATION for doing it.
Obama is a wealthy guy...how about we ask him to show us what he is made of and work for nothing??
I'm not certain what standards you use to measure people, but my standards are pretty high. I know little about Romney, but his standards of conduct are pretty damn high.
What are Obamas standards??
Leak classified information for political gain...
Allow Americans pleading for protection overseas to be killed and have their bodies desecrated by ignoring their requests for extra protection, even though they put themselves in harms way...can't upset his Muslim brothers!!
Cover up a failed gun-running operation by exercising executive privilege, so he could protect his buddy at the Justice department..gotta take care of his buddies!
Issue executive orders allowing millions of undocumented people to flood our markets for jobs to compete directly with LEGAL American citizens...during an election year of course!
Claim to produce a jobs bill that didn't get passed by Republicans, even though it never passed the Democrat controlled Senate...how convenient to forget about that...BTW, the jobs bill never had a chance because it was a joke and didn't create a single job.
So, yeah, I guess we will continue to see the same ole same ole...
I admire your convictions, but the "road to hell is paved with good intentions".
#3237 Nov 8, 2012
You bring out energy in me STAMOS. The group that you support is corrupt to it's core.
Yes, it is very clear that this corrupt group not only is corrupted but in fact they have friends in political positions that are also corrupt from yes, judges to others in the system.
They crossed the line and will be held accountable through the courts.
I will fight a room full of your corrupt groupies in the court room without a degree. You continue to bring purposeful corruption forward.
#3238 Nov 8, 2012
I see that your newspaper is involved. You have judges in your pocket as well as other persons in owed positions.
Notice that my head is always held high among these individuals no matter their ability to abuse their power.
Now I will turn to listen to my bob Dillion and his song for hurricane Carter for inspiration and strength.
Bring your corrupt judges forward as I will expose them all. Bring your newspaper forwArd. Bring Antonucci people forward. Bring on your group of prosecutors as I a have already exposed one.
You want to keep bringing corruption forward to abuse my family and I ?? You may be able to relish in the fact that you were able to bring a corrupt affect to my brothers job and his health. I will admit that you have succeeded some In this regard but that only means that you are now awaiting the karma from this fact to appear on your doorstep as karma always finds it's righteous course!!
