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.

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.

Justina Pelletier treated

There is a young person held captive in Massachusetts today who is not allowed to participate in religious ceremonies, or visit family without government agents watching. No, it’s not accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. It’s 15-year-old mitochondrial disease patient and nonterrorist Justina Pelletier. U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole Jr. ruled Wednesday that the now-20-year-old charged with four deaths and injuring more than 260 people should be able to see his sisters without an FBI agent present. The feds can appeal, but he says their case would have to be “pretty convincing.” “Can you believe it?”

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

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 Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president."
