Massachusetts’ loss is New Hampshire’s gain?


Scott Brown is edging closer to ending the suspense about whether he’ll run for U.S. senator from New Hampshire next year. Brown, who served for three years as senator from Massachusetts, has sold his home there and is moving to the “Live Free or Die” state. Later this week, he will headline the New Hampshire GOP’s annual Christmas party.

This isn’t as strange as it might seem. The telegenic Brown has owned a vacation home in New Hampshire for decades. And although New Hampshire has been getting more and more blue in recent years, it’s still nowhere near as blue as Massachusetts.

So Brown definitely would have a chance. What’s more, New Hampshire is loaded with Massachusetts refugees who would probably be simpatico to Brown’s political relocation.

What’s next for New Hampshire: Romney as governor? After all, Mitt has owned a home on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee since 1997.

    I give you the catatonic Dr. Leo Marvin as just one example of the damage possible.

    Anyone ever wonder if electing Scott Brown to the Senate was an awful mistake in the first place? I mean, it was his election that gave us the rushed PPACA (Obamacare) in its final form, because the Dems no longer had a supermajority. Had he either not been elected, or at least not run on being the 40th vote against the PPACA, then maybe there would have been a chance to add a few amendments that might have helped kinda fix it…

    I doubt the stupid party would have complied with the extra time for amendments.

    This would have been much less likely to happen in the days before the 17th Amendment, when state legislators selected Senators to represent the state’s interests.

  6. Ymarsakar Says:

    The Left had an early blow against independence with that. By tying Senators down to a democratic process of popular opinion, while still having the perks of being an elite cushioned from consequences, they struck a blow against the foundations of American stability.

    A lot of what the Left does or what they use, appear harmless until the activation process goes critical and moves into the Final Stage.

    The idea of a Leftist alliance existing even before the Soviet Union came to power, may seem ridiculous on the face. But one should never underestimate the Power of the Left.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
