Romney 'introduced' 131 repugs to run for state office in MA
He also promised, I think another million (or was it 2?) to get repugs elected to offices in state govt. I think he has already raised 3 mill for that purpose. Sorry, no link; I just saw it on the news. This rich repug carpetbagger is working hard to ruin our state!

1. I like "Mittens" Romney
Edited on Tue May-25-04 04:51 PM by Sandpiper
If for no other reason, he's single handedly done more to damage the public perception of the anti gay rights movement than anyone in the country.

With each defeat in court, he looked like more and more of a fanatical bigot, desperately trying to make sure that gays remained second class citizens.

He's fast becoming the George Wallace of this generation.

2. He is being quite ridiculous on that issue.
Gets shot down on one move, comes up with something else, ad infinitum.

3. No tax pledge Mitt wants a new tax on internet tourist postings!
I do not even know how it would work - but we have a say no to Mitt's new internet Tourist Tax ad on the radio today!

:-)

4. Huh? WTF is that?
I don't know what you're talking about, but the words 'tax' and 'internet' in the same sentence make no sense, particularly if he's referring to a state tax, which I would assume he is. Man, this guy just keeps getting worse and worse. I can't remember hearing much about him for quite some time, and all of a sudden, as the pre-election season is starting up, I'm hearing him come out with a new asinine thing just about every day.

7. I've heard that this is why he's doing it...
Right now, because of the amount of Dems in the H&S, Romney does not have veto power over anything the H or S passes.

However, if we reach a certain number (I forget the number) of Repugs in the H & S, then Romney will get veto power.

night managers at video stores, guys who flunked out of Dairy Queen Management school and women who were too crazy for the Sodality...in all the cream of the Massachusetts GOP.

12. and on the Cape
they have to import them from Boston:

From this morning's Cape Cod Times:

Duncan's Cape residency disputed

By JACK COLEMAN
STAFF WRITER
FALMOUTH - State Senate candidate Timothy Duncan says he has been a year-round Falmouth resident since October, but he is getting a $1,454 tax break this year for his house in Cambridge, an exemption available only to those claiming a dwelling as their primary residence.

Republican state Senate candidate Timothy Duncan's house in Woods Hole is under construction in this May 12 photo. Duncan lists the home as his primary residence, although he receives a property tax benefit in Cambridge becasue he filed papers with city officials saying his home there is his primary residence.

<snip>

Although Duncan is not required to live in the district until Election Day, critics say the Cambridge lawyer is moving to the Cape as part of a Republican effort to target Democratic incumbents.

Duncan also has not obtained an occupancy permit for a 2,600-square-foot house under construction off Woods Hole Road, where he claims to live.
