Congrats to our Conservatives on "their" win yesterday.

I found it (kind of) interesting - in Nudie's speech, he said he wanted to get back to good government. What? When was that? During the Bush 1 or 2 years? Back to the future. Yippee!

Status quo, here we go...

Sounds to me like the Massachusetts democrats are a heck of a lot smarter than the ones from Michigan.

You are right. Nobody liked the Senate's bill. It was a give away to the insurance companies.

So, Senator-elect Brown- the "everyman w/ a truck" (his TV personality wife and American Idol daughter) wanted to kill healthcare reform. He will now be able to access the gov't pool to select his healthcare plan. He supported the Mass. Healthcare plan.

He also supports abortion rights. I could (point out), how that would be a good thing --given his magazine spread. Consevative should hope he only did it for money and no freebees will be showing up on the web.

So, now you start the throwing crap at the wall to see if it sticks or did you get the Progressive talking points in your inbox???? Now the ridicule and demeaning begins, again. You are so predictable and boring.

What did I say - that was incorrect?

porn model?
pro abortion?
supporter of the state healthcare plan?
attention seeking family?

No.. YOU made the acusations. The burden of proof is on YOU. YOU prove that what you just said wasn't from the DNC talking points email.

For argument sake, let's say you are correct. Then I would expect you and your liberal friends should all embrace even the thought of such a wonderful man. Shoot, I bet Pete would embrace him as a porn model alone.

Pushing a few buttons there Bubbly?

Fact - Posed for Cosmopolitan in his 20's to help pay for law school.(not exactly a porn model)-not a big deal to me anyway

Fact - He is Pro Choice w/o late term abortions and no tax payer sponsered abortions.

Fact - He did support the Mass health care bill. He also thinks that the health care should be up to states not feds. He had ideas on the federal level, though I don't agree on his tort reform stance. I believe tort reform, if it is enforced on the medical industry needs to be enforced on all industries. Just my opionon on tort reform.

Fact - His wife is some kind of reporter (I think), and his daugther finished in the top 5 of American Idol. I really don't consider that attention seeking. They are pursuing their own individual careers. Not a big deal.

He, did however, receive substantial donations from some lobbying groups. I guess he can't really be criticized for that because they all do it, and it is something I wish we could really get away from. To me it is just buying votes when a bill comes up.

I believe that pretty much covers your points but in a different presentation.

Sounds like a successful family.
The guy ran on Conservative ideals: lower taxes, against PelosiCare, against lawyering up terrorists, etc., and he won convincingly in an overwhelmingly Democrat state.
Insult his family if you want for kicks, Lord knows we've had our fun with Obama, Pelosi and the idiot Biden, but this election had nothing to with "buying votes", corruption or, as Obama wants people to believe, hate.
It's not rocket science, people don't like the Progressives agenda and whining about it just looks like sour grapes.

I wasn't whining, nor criticizing the family. Just putting the facts in persepective.

You misunderstood the buying votes part.

It appears that you saw my post as a criticism, which it was not.

Okay. I see where you're coming from.

Let me ask you: Do you agree with Obama's take on the election of Brown - that it was based on anger? That the same "anger" over the last eight years of politics that propelled him to victory also was at work in this race?

Let me ask you. Is this is trick question so you can label it back to the blame Bush that everyone keeps saying Obama always does?

In answer to your question though, to some degree yes. The
American people are angry. Does it relate back to Bush in this particlar election, no I don't think so. Many reports have said that the Mass people (as do many other Americans) do not want the Health Care Bill in its present form. One of the discussions was that Mass already has Health Care that they pay for and the people of Mass don't want to pay for the rest of the country too.

I personally hope that we do get some new, decent, common sense politicians (if they can be found)in these upcoming elections that will actually sit down and work together for the good of the country. The mudslinging needs to stop.

LOL - no trick questions, I promise. I was genuinely interested in your answer. Thanks for responding!
It came as no surprise Obama would try and spin this smackdown back to Bush-bashing. I just wonder if anyone at this point is buying that BS anymore. Sounds like you're not.

As for common sense and working together for the good of the American people: Couldn't agree with you more!! Bet a lot of people feel the same way.

Well actually, I like the guy. I am just trying to push your buttons.

I probably would have voted for him too. He worked pretty well w/ DEMS in his state, so he may do the same in Washington. Obama and Brown both like basketball, so they will probably- end up best buddies. We could call him --McCain Lite.

So...stop screaming at me!!!
