There is a VERY unsettling drift toward installing Scott Brown back in the Senate.

and I am not kidding. And not *just* with the withdrawal of Rice for SoS consideration either. Why is John Kerry the only other choice?

Why risk, with Citizens United still in place, getting the largest recipient of Wall Street donations back in the Senate? Doesn't Elizabeth Warren already have enough on her plate without that hinderance?

It's almost as if TPTB want to guarantee that Scott Brown be there, and it's kinda creeping me out.

1. It's not the powers that be, it's singular it appears-John Kerry himself.(unless he gives Sherman

 

but I figure today, President Obama knows what he is doing and is working to alleviate the problems that appear to those not in the know, which he himself is in the know and we are out of the loop.

the picture picture prize at the end of the rainbow is what matters.
More than the day to day appearances that we are not privy to

President Obama hasn't been wrong yet.

See Lincoln the movie. Lincoln and Obama and LBJ three of the same that play the game to win, but do so wisely. Wise is the optimum word.

none ever was reckless. All 3 achieved.

2. relax

he is damaged goods, and Warren smacked his ass good in the election. MA was caught off gaurd in an off election. Scott brown stood for nothing and ran on nothing, let the pigs waste there money.

That being said I think Kerry would be awesome, but prefer him in the senate.

3. Yes

As a Massachusetts resident, I'd agree with your statement. I do not want Brown back in. We cannot lose Kerry in the Senate.

6. There has been talk in MA that Dems may change the rule so that a Patrick

appointment would finish out the term. One thing the Dems have in MA are numbers and can change the rules to keep Brown at bay.

9. If it's good enough for Michigan, should be good enough for Mass.

10. What's funny here in MA is that they already have changed the rules twice, and

because Dems far and away out number Reps, no one can complain loud enough that it would matter.

4. I am baffled why everyone assumes that the seat is Scott Brown's for the taking

if Kerry becomes the Secretary of State.

8. Citizens United may have been vanquished last time, but it is still the

law of this land.

Scott Brown is the highest recipient of Wall Street cash.

Yep. I said "install", and I mean it.

12. Do you have anything to substantiate this "VERY unsettling drift toward installing Scott Brown....

...back in the Senate", or is this something you personally think is happening?
