As usual, the tea party champion an idea they are totally clueless about. Turns out they were totally ignorant on what this man stood for. I pointed this out while you guys were celebrating the "victory" but nobody listened.

But barely three months into his tenure, Brown has fallen out of favor with his onetime Tea Party backers, and is starting to looking like something of a silver lining for Democrats. In a no-less symbolic moment, Brown declined an invitation to appear at a Tea Party rally in Boston this week headlined by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
Quote:
On Monday, he furnished a critical swing vote to tamp down a threatened Republican filibuster on a bill to extend federal unemployment benefits. And in his first major break with conservative activists, he voted for a Democratic jobs bill in February, earning him thousands of outraged comments on his Facebook page from Tea Party backers who felt betrayed by the senator they had worked so hard to help elect.

Nothing is going to help the Democrats in the next election. Brown or no Brown.

He is not beholden to the Tea Party - he already fulfilled his promise to vote against the healthcare bill, and he joined other swing votes on the jobs bill in an act that defines precisely what swing votes are all about. He appears to be voting like a Republican in a liberal district would vote, if you ask me.

Kills you that people are taking this country back from the liberals doesn't it?
Because your disdain for the tea party is clear. The Libs have had a good run but their time is up. NEXT!

Scott Brown is a Republican in Massachusetts. He needs to present himself as a centrist. This shouldn't be surprising at all to anyone.

I would like to see some more popular Republicans who are moderate on social issues and hard line on fiscal, national defense and immigration issues.

That describes the way I voted most of the time since Nixon in 1968. It's the take no prisoners hate-filled extreme religious right that drove millions of us into the Independent and DEM camps, not to mention the disaster of Bush-43.
