Do you still want Scott Brown for President? 41st vote turns into 61st vote.

I was as jubilant as the rest of the right when Scott Brown won the election in Mass. because of the historic nature and because of what it meant to the Obama agenda.  Remember, he was Mr. 41st vote.  That is what he campaigned on.   So many people were ready to crown him the Republican nominee for President in 2012.  We knew he had very liberal social beliefs (abortion), but maybe he could be banked on to help preserve our economy.  Well, what do you think now.  He broke from the party and voted for the "jobs" bill.  Why, if he didn't believe in the direction of the democrats when it comes to the economy, would he vote for the jobs bill.  I consider this a very important litmus test to his conservative credentials.  NO CONSERVATIVE would vote for a bill in which government spending is used to "create" jobs.  We all know this doesn't work and we thought Scott Brown did too.  NOPE.  Can you say rope a dope.  What's worse than his affirmative vote for government spending is how he will serve as a rallying figure for other RINOs to vote for the Obama agenda.   What a turd.  I mean, that's what it boils down to.  Is there a politician out there you can actually believe in.

Ron Paul?

Well, look. I can't make many excuses for ol' Scotty. But I think he needed to signal the left-leaning indies back home who voted for him that he’ll break their way from time to time. Even armed with a huge war chest for 2012, he ain’t getting reelected as a party-line Republican. In which case, this might not be a bad time to throw a vote to the Dims.

Perhaps Brown’s strategy, essentially, is to use that logic against them by throwing them a vote he can use to try to keep the seat red in two years. Other than that, I got nothing......

plus jimmy, why would scott brown consider it good strategy to campaign on stopping the thing he voted for. What's the use. Mean what you say, say what you mean

I am playing devil's advocate here, not siding with him. He is in the bluest of blues states, so he isn't going to vote our way all the time.

Just trying to throw out a reason why he did, not justifying it.
