MASSACHUSETTS:
RCP Average 9/21 - 10/4 -- -- Obams,58.8 : Romney, 33.8 Obama +25.0


That an up close and personal judgment don't you think?

The people of that state know what it's like to have Romney as the chief executive and really want no part of him again.

Interestingly Scott Brown is way ahead of Romney.....

:cool:

I'd be interested in that one too.

Is it true that Romney is a Liberal Socialist? Does Paul Ryan know this and if not why on earth has no one revealed this truth to him?

Mittens don't care. That would good if he was at least half bad***, but.....he's not.

You can still buy a chevy rather than a toyota. Usama sleeps with the fishes. Mittens didn't do that. You know who did.

And since Scott Brown is polling ten points higher than the Liberal Socialist ex-governor that must mean he's a Liberal Socialist as well! Just not as Liberally Socialist as Elizabeth Warren at the moment.

Wow they're everywhere!

Just like in that Jimmy Buffett song.

Especially when most people in the state realize that Romney is running on a COMPLETELY different platform than he did when running for governor.  

His desire to fit whatever mold he needs to fit into, to rise to a position of power, is abundantly clear to the people of MA.

To further cast away that nonsense of a statement, Brown is currently polling better than Warren.  Another clear indicator that the folks of MA don't vote blindly for Team Blue.  There have been several revelations showing Warren has at points spoken out of both sides of her mouth, not to mention that silly Native American claim.  MA voters recognize this, and are showing they would rather have honesty and ethics over the party line.

Romney is down in MA based on his lack of honesty, lack of transparency, and lack of character.

I'd say that the voters in MA are amoung the smartest and most informed people in the nation. They know this isn't the same Romney. I don't even know if he'd recognize himself.

Was Governor Romney even the same individual as Candidate-for-Governor Romney?

From various articles I get the impression that's a "no".

So Romney ran as the Liberal Socialist candidate when he ran for Governor?

Well no wonder he faced headwinds in the Republican Party primaries!

Oh and as noted when did Scott Brown switch to the Liberal Socialist party? He's within the margin for error in his race with Elizabeth warren.

Read the link."Reliably Dem since 1928", "The only state to vote for McGovern", yeah, that might be a liberal bastion.

Yet they elected MITT ROMNEY Governor?

How "reliable" is that to have elected the man the REPUBLICAN Party has chosen for their presidential candidate?

Unless, of course, Romney is a Liberal Socialist plant! Is Vulture Capitalism a Liberal Socialist trait? Given Massachusetts is "the only state" to have elected Mitt Romney Governor.... hmmm.

So really there's no escaping the fact that a majority of Massachusetts voters CHOSE Romney over a competing "LIberal Socialist" and yet this time? Notsomuch. That would appear to reflect experience of him as chief executive not blind ideology, they voted him IN! after all.

Montana is seen as strongly Conservative yet has Democrats for governor and US senators. I guess they're really right wing teapartiers in disguise.
