And apparently the Mass. GOP is the most liberal caucus in the country. :)

I like where this is heading.

This reminds me of "Confessions of a Right-Wing Liberal" by Rothbard.[1]

It's funny they don't show their so-called "research". He's not liberal from what I know, and that article didn't even make an argument. Brown's just a typical GOPer.

The first link I clicked on linked to Scott Brown's wiki. I'm doubting they did any "research".

I did. The guy didn't even mention one liberal policy of Brown. He didn't make an argument.

He's doing it by ideology charts and research based on positions that Brown himself has given. It isn't as if this guy it making it out of thin air. He cites surveys, interest groups, and lots of things. I'd give it some credence.

I would if I could see some charts, research, and surveys.

Everyone's a Liberal in Massachusetts. Must be the air. ^_^

Unless you're Mitt Romney.

When it gets to the point where I'd support Mitt, he's a liberal. He just likes to pretend he isn't, but we all know he is.

"c) Do you support state funding for open space preservation? Yes"

He's an environmentalist, too.

He's okay with gun ownership, as long as there is a licensing system.

What I don't like is that he wants to "Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks on guns." That's dumb. They're too easy to get around, and even then, the large majority of gun manufacturers have some sort of safety switch all ready.

The old "log cabin Republican" Mitt Romney was a likable guy, but he changed his entire persona come the 2008 elections. It was all just for the sake of trying to get his neoconservative party's nomination.

It's virtually impossible for someone to get elected in a New England office if they're not liberal on abortion, it seems. We don't have many Republican office-holders up here, but when we do, they're most likely Moderates.

LOL. Why do you say that Romney used to be a log cabin Republican? Do you even know what a log cabin Republican is?

Yes.

Romney was extremely liberal for a Republican, even so far as to oppose the "Reagan Revolution" and "Contract with America" crap that was being thrown around a lot. Since then he's become a major flip-flopper on pretty much everything.

A republican who likes a log up the ol' cabin?

Lol... no. A Log Cabin Republicans is a gay rights organization, with Republican affiliations. Mitt Romney never has been a member. That ad you sourced was an attack ad - painting Romney as a flip-flopper.

He's opposed to Obamacare. He wins.
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

All that really matters here is that MASSACHUCETS is going to vote for someone who will help kill this healthcare takeover. Which the people don't want and is completely unconstitutional... COMPLETELY.
GAH!

I dunno, they might go for the candidate who can spell instead.

Fail. Utter, fail.

Those are some vicious attack ads though. And I thought the ones here were bad. xD
