MUST WATCH: Ann Coulter Hits the Nail on the Head

Great video of Ann Coulter discussing Newt Gingrich and the South Carolina primary. Check it out:

When I listen to Gingrich in his debate performances, and I do mean “performances,” his answers always seem reminiscent of the Shakespeare line, “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

I, for one, was very confused and dumbfounded about the whole “standing ovation” thing that Newt accomplished in South Carolina. I truly felt that Gingrich’s answers weren’t that amazing. In fact, the answers were really quite average if you take just a moment to think about what he said. Often Newt dodged the question rather than answered it. Or he resorted to giving snarky, glib retorts rather than having a grown-up conversation about the issues. Hopefully Republican voters in Florida will see that many of Newt’s “great debate performances” are really just dodging the question in order to distract from his genuine flaws.

‘Weekly Standard’ Magazine Debunks the Myth that Romney is a “Moderate” - Romney is “More Conservative Than You Think”

There is a lot of talk these days about how Mitt Romney is a so-called “Massachusetts moderate” and how other candidates are trying to be the “conservative alternative” to Gov. Romney. Some even compare Mitt Romney to John McCain’s candidacy of 2008.

One very conservative and influential magazine called ‘The Weekly Standard,’ whose editor (Bill Krystol) is a regular panelist on Fox News Sunday, looked into the issue. The conclusion that they found is that Romney is “no moderate,” in fact:

“Romney is at least as conservative as his GOP rivals on jettisoning Obamacare and more conservative than some on entitlements, national security, and immigration. He’s no match for Gingrich on taxes, but that’s about it. Overall, he’s to the right of Gingrich.”

The article goes on to say that in regard to the top four most pressing issues of the day (namely Immigration, Tax Reform, Health Care, and Military Defense spending), Romney is “anything but moderate.”

“On four of the biggest issues in 2012, Romney is anything but moderate—or timid. He gets no special credit for advocating repeal of Obamacare. That’s Republican dogma. But he’s been the most specific among the GOP presidential candidates in backing the Ryan budget in all its parts, including its remake of Medicare. It was House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan’s plan that Gingrich zinged as “right wing social engineering” before reversing himself under duress.

When Romney announced in November his own proposal for cutting spending and reforming Medicare and Social Security, Paul Ryan was thrilled. “Look at what he put out!” he told Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post. “This is a great development.” Ryan said Romney’s package of spending cuts “tracks perfectly with the House budget,” which Ryan had drafted.”

Further Evidence

Further evidence of Romney’s conservative credentials is the fact that Romney made history in New Hampshire’s vote last week. Not only was he the first non-incumbent Republican to win both Iowa and New Hampshire, but in New Hamphire Romney got more votes from self-identified Republican voters than any other Republican candidate in history. Here is a brief summary on how New Hampshire Republicans voted:

“Mitt picked up 49% of GOP voters. Romney’s 49 percent is the highest mark among self-identified Republicans for any presidential candidate since New Hampshire moved its primary forward in the calendar.

Contrast that with John McCain, with whom he’s often compared as a squishy moderate with problems with Republicans.

McCain is the only candidate since 1980 to win New Hampshire even as he lost among self-identified Republicans.

That means McCain was essentially the worst winner with Republicans in New Hampshire over the past 30 years, while Romney was the best.”

As the Weekly Standard and polls from New Hampshire show, Romney is no moderate. He is a solid conservative. Strikingly, Romney is getting equal support from both conservatives and moderates among the voters and also from among congressmen and Governors who have endorsed Romney. Part of Romney’s strength is that he is a conservative that also appeals strongly to independents. That sounds like the kind of candidate we need running for the White House.

Romney Announces 63 Member Justice Advisory Team, Robert Bork Co-Chair

Conservative judge, legal scholar Robert Bork will co-chair Romney's 63 member Justice Advisory Committee. August 2, 2021

The news today from hard-working Mitt Romney and his campaign keeps rolling in and it’s…


Governor Romney has assembled a 63 member advisory team, including illustrious co-chair Robert Bork, to counsel him on a variety of issues. The formation of this stellar new team further underscores Romney’s deep commitment to the rule of law and constitutional governance:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday announced a team of 63 lawyers, co-chaired by conservative legal scholar Robert Bork, that will advise his campaign on constitutional and judicial matters, law enforcement and homeland security, and regulatory issues.

In addition to Bork, a conservative icon whose nomination by President Ronald Reagan to the Supreme Court failed in the Senate, Romney’s Justice Advisory Committee will be chaired by Harvard Law School professor Mary Ann Glendon, who served as U.S. ambassador to the Vatican in President George W. Bush’s administration, and Richard Wiley, a former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.

Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, is a graduate of Harvard Law School. The choice of chairs and committee members seems designed to solidify his credentials within the conservative legal establishment.

Mitt Romney deeply understands that the rule of law and the integrity of our courts are essential components of our nation’s strength and must be preserved,” the three chairmen said in a joint statement. “He will nominate judges who faithfully adhere to the Constitution’s text, structure, and history and he will carry out the duties of President as a zealous defender of the Constitution. We fully support Mitt Romney’s campaign and look forward to working with other members of the committee as we advise him on today’s pressing legal issues.”

The committee, which will also provide legal counsel to Romney’s campaign, also includes other prominent figures, including former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff, former chancellor to the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware William Allen and former Texas Supreme Court chief justice Thomas Phillips.

Romney’s statement:

Our democracy depends on a government that respects the Constitution and the rule of law,” Romney said in a statement. “Our nation needs a Congress and an Executive branch that are cognizant of the bounds of their powers and a judiciary that will strictly construe the Constitution and refuse to legislate from the bench. I am proud and honored to have the support of an extraordinary group of attorneys and legal scholars.”

(emphasis added)

For the names of those on Romney’s new Justice Advisory Committee, continue reading here.

Wow. This announcement, along with the announcement today that Romney’s campaign is shifting into higher gear, further demonstrates the planning, organization, and wisdom Team Romney is known for.

► Jayde Wyatt

~UPDATE from RightSpeak

This news even has a bit of an Iowa spin to it, according to the Iowa Independent:

“The formation of the committee could play well among some voters in Iowa, specifically from social and religious Conservatives who feel the Iowa Supreme Court has overstepped its Constitutional boundaries in the last few years, particularly in the 2009 ruling of Varnum v. Brien, which legalized same-sex marriage in Iowa.”

Mitt Romney, in announcing this committee, with members such as these, should go along way to assuage the fears of his critics, who think he’ll appoint “activist” judges, who legislate from the bench.

Gov. Romney is Hit With the First Democrat Attack Ad of 2012

Democrats are running ads to hurt Gov. Romney in South Carolina this weekend. Revolution 2012 at RightSpeak makes some interesting observations on the attacks.

The Democrats are attacking Mitt for supporting Supreme Court Justices like Thomas and Scalia as well as saying he is on the same page as Paul Ryan. Other than that, they try to use a play on words to say Mitt Romney changes his mind a lot but literally gives 0 examples to support their attack. President Obama is probably angry that an ad this pathetic was used against his fiercest competitor. I could be giving President Obama too much credit though, maybe he thinks it will be effective. If the Democrats spend a billion dollars on attack ads like this, Gov. Romney is going to be whistling all the way to the White House. Check out the response from the Romney camp:

‘President Obama and his team are desperate to change the subject to anything other than jobs and the millions of Americans out of work,’ Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Romney’s presidential exploratory committee, said in a statement. ‘With 9.6% unemployment in South Carolina, voters are looking for a jobs plan not a smear campaign.’

According to Politico, the following e-mail has been sent to some supporters of Gov. Romney.

Just this morning, the New York Times posted a story, “Group Unleashes Early Ad Against Romney,” about President Obama’s reelection campaign machine starting attack ads in South Carolina against Governor Romney. All the while, South Carolina is hurting. Like many states suffering from the failed policies of the Obama administration, the Palmetto State has seen 3,800 more jobs in April disappear than in the previous month; and they are currently experiencing 9.8% unemployment.

After campaigning so famously on “hope” and “change,” the President and his team have now resorted to governing on fear and misdirection. Already, former Obama aides and union leaders have been commissioned to lead outside political attack groups — which aren’t limited in the amount of high-dollar donations they can receive — and President Obama himself plans to raise an additional $1 billion.

As part of their effort this weekend, they’ll be welcoming Governor Romney’s visit to South Carolina with a misleading, negative attack ad — their first ad of the campaign. There is no doubting it — the vast amount of money that President Obama has raised over the last few years is being put towards silencing his opposition. Don’t be silenced — donate today.

Make no mistake. Governor Romney plans to confront these attacks head-on. He will not allow these tactics to slow him down. Governor Romney’s message of restoring a prosperous economy and bringing jobs back to the American people is too crucial to be suppressed by political maneuvering.

I hope you’ll join me and stand with Mitt today. Help him show these outside political attack groups that they’re out of tune with America’s core beliefs, and do so by donating today. Your contribution and support is crucial to continue to push back against these negative attacks.

Thank you for your support.

Gail Gitcho

Communications Director

P.S. These attacks will continue. Share this with your friends and family and help Governor Romney expose President Obama’s real agenda. Please ask them to donate $5, $10 or $25 today.

To all the Republicans who think Gov. Romney can’t beat President Obama, it’s fairly obvious that President Obama disagrees. Let’s make the creators of those ads regret their decision to air them and all make a small donation to Gov. Romney’s campaign today!

Is Mitt Romney responsible for Obamacare and the current state of the Massachusetts Health Care system?

Dr. X

Here is an analogy for those who continue to blame Obamacare and the current status of the Massachusetts Health Care system on Mitt Romney:

There was a woman named Massa Chu Setts. She had complained of chronic pain to several doctors over the years. No one seemed able to help her until Dr. X came along. After several meetings with Massa, Dr X took her medical history and specific symptoms and consulted with several specialists. Tests were recommended and performed. A plan to remedy this woman’s suffering was developed and put into place specific to here particular needs and situation. With all this information in hand, Dr X proceeded with his treatment and the woman was finally relieved of her pain.

Dr. Y

Well, hearing this news, Dr. Y who had a patient that he felt had a similar problem, decided that he would treat his patient the same way. Why bother with the unnecessary tests and consultations Dr. Y thought. It was obvious to him that his patient suffered from the same ailment and required the same treatment as Massa. He proceeded and his patient died.

If he had only just consulted with Dr X, before he proceeded, he would have learned that Dr. X’s patient Massa Chu Setts, had mixed results. The pain she was having was lessened, but she would require ongoing treatments and close supervision, for the rest of her life.

Dr. Z

Dr. X, finally retired and left his patient in the hands of Dr Z with the recommendation to continue with his treatment of Massa under close supervision. Well Dr Z decided to put the woman on additional drugs because he felt they would help her. They didn’t and Massa continues a downward spiral losing many of the gains she made under Dr. X..

I have 2 questions for you:

1. Is Dr X (Mitt Romney) in anyway responsible for Dr. Y’s (Barack Obama) patient dying?

2. Is Dr. X responsible for his former patient’s new health issues under Dr. Z (Governor Deval Patrick)?

If you have determined that Dr. X is not responsible for Dr. Y’s patient’s treatment and death or the current health of his former patient Massa, how then is Mitt Romney responsible for Obamacare and the current state of the Massachusetts Health Care system?

Note from Nate: be sure to also read Aaron’s op-ed RomneyCare positions Mitt Romney as Most Qualified to Dismantle ObamaCare

Mitt Romney, the Tea Party, Hillary Clinton, GOP Dissension, and the RINO Label

I’m a self-proclaimed Tea Party member. It is my understanding the Tea Party movement consists of an ever-growing group of concerned citizens who protest rampant spending in Washington, and the misuse of federal power over individual liberties. I’m happy to be a part of that group.

No doubt, the Tea Party is a force to be reckoned with — evidence of this is witnessed everyday as more and more Tea Party-backed candidates rise to victory in their primary battles. Long-time GOP veterans are ousted (a la Bob Bennett) from their cozy seats while young blood Republicans fervently step in to fill their shoes. For the most part, its a beautiful thing to behold.

My Brother Luke at a SLC Tea Party Rally

I’ve gone to local Tea Party protests; I listen to an occasional Glenn Beck episode; I’ve gone door-to-door as an advocate for conservative principles, I’ve wished I had the money to hit up a National rally; heck, I’ve even listened to and liked some Mama Grizzly speeches. I know, I know, I could certainly do more …but I figure that’s a pretty decent level of activism for a twenty-something, newly married, full-time employee.

I can attest that many of those who write for this site (Team MRC), are gun toting, Bible carrying, freedom loving patriots. We’ve constructed the protest banners; we’ve worn the goofy colonial hats; we’ve marched the marches of the conservative crusade. We’ve been there, done that.

I bring up my/our involvement with the Tea Party movement not to boast, but to illustrate a strange phenomena that is happing to many fellow Mitt Romney backers within the Tea Party: Estrangement.

Somewhere along the line, the notion was adopted, mostly among liberal media but more recently among fellow conservatives, that Mitt Romney represents solely the moderate, ‘establishment’ core of the Republican party: the Bush loyalists; the staunch GOPers. I won’t deny that Gov. Romney’s appeal is wide, and it certainly may spread to the more moderate branch of our party, but I refudiate the absurd conception that his base of support exists only in that branch. I see obnoxious headlines all the time now that predict Romney’s demise, tracing it all back to how he’s the GOP’s supposed ‘next in line’, but the Tea Party backlash will impede him from gaining wide Republican support. Just today, an article from NPR calls Mitt Romney ‘the Hillary Clinton of 2012‘ - destined to fail due an uprising in the party’s fringe…

Baloney. Mitt will never be the ‘man’ that Hillary Clinton is.

As conservatives, we’ve gotten so caught up in the day-to-day mud slinging that we’ve lost site of our principal goal: to take our country back! My concern is that the primary benefactor of all this may be the very thing we all wish to deter: the advancement of Obama’s liberal agenda.

Somewhere amidst the dust up of GOP in-fighting, the Democrats are grinning. They watch- entertained - as we are preoccupied with assigning destructive labels to our own party leaders, and dividing ourselves into far too many factions of Republicanism. “My candidate endorsed the eventual primary winner WAY before yours did!” — “Why is your guy/gal silent on this hot-button issue?” — “Why wasn’t your candidate a speaker at THIS convention?!” — “RINO this, RINO, that!”

I recognize the need for purification [giving the boot to those whose ideas are stale, whose interests are no longer with their constituents], but everyone’s vision of perfection is different - and in the end, rather than coming out of the refiner’s fire without blemish, our party instead suffers a serious case of dirty dissension.

Now, it isn’t my intention to have everyone unite around my choice for the Republican nomination (assuming that he decides to run). I do, however, offer up a suggestion that we come together under the umbrella of conservatism, and reject none that seek shelter from the tempest of progressivism. For what it’s worth, the contributors of this site have tried to maintain respectful discourse with other camps, applauding our guy when he represents us well, and keeping our target on the opposition.

Mitt Romney Not a Rino

So in exchange for the respect we’ve given you, before you go labeling ‘Mittens’ as a ‘RINO’ and speculating his downfall, remember this: Mitt Romney is a true conservative. He has a record of success in family, education, career, and government. He is an honorable husband, father, and grandpa. He is not a lifetime politician. He owes no favors. He has profound concern for the future of our Republic. He is devout in his service to God and fellow man. He is money savvy and charitable with his self-earned wealth. He is visionary and innovative. He is an economical wizard; a turnaround expert in a country that needs a turnaround.

Flip through a copy of Romney’s ‘No Apology: the Case for American Greatness’. You’ll quickly see that the man has a deep love for our country and his plan for a greater America mirrors the ideals that most Americans hold dear.

I’m a Morgan Philpot Phan, and You Can Be Too!

A few nights ago I attended (with my brother Aaron and his wife) a heal-the-wounds event that was meant to reunite Utah conservatives after a hard-fought primary for the Senate seat. Both Tim Bridgewater and Mike Lee, along with many other Utah notables, agreed to attend the event before it was known who would win the primary election. Our small group arrived extremely late, too late to see Lee or Bridgewater, but we we’re in time to talk with the one person that I most wanted to meet: Morgan Philpot.

There are many congressional races in the 2010 elections where the average conservative can make a large impact - the Utah 2nd district is right at the top of that list. Morgan Philpot is the Republican nominee to run against the 5-term Obama-endorsed Democrat incumbent Jim Matheson. In this short post I hope to convince you that Morgan Philpot is not just worth voting for, he is worth investing your precious time and your hard-earned money.

Morgan Philpot for UT-2

Meet Morgan Philpot:

Morgan Philpot and his wife Natalie currently reside in American Fork, Utah with their 5 children. Philpot has served 2 terms as a Utah State Representative. He did not run for a third term, instead he chose to attend the Ave Maria School of Law in Michigan. After returning from school Philpot again became heavily involved in Utah politics where he served most recently as the Vice-Chair of the Utah Republican party, until he voluntarily gave up that post in order to run for congress in January of this year. Philpot had also worked for Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff after his graduation.

Philpot vs. Matheson

Jim Matheson is a moderate Democrat at best, but Utah can do much better. As members of the reddest state in the union, Utahns don’t have to settle for a mediocre, luke-warm moderate when we have the wherewithal to elect a full-blown conservative. Jim Matheson voted for the stimulus package to nowhere, cash-for-clunkers, and enough other high-spending bills to make the average fiscal conservative go bonkers. He has done nothing to put the brakes on the out-of-control-freight-train spending in Washington. And though Matheson didn’t vote for ObamaCare (likely due to intense pressure from the Tea Party crowd at home), he has made it clear that he will not seek to repeal that bill in anyway.

On the other hand we have Morgan Philpot, a constitutional loving, card-carrying conservative. Morgan Philpot will fight to protect the constitution, halt and reverse the rapid growth of the federal government, protect states’ rights, restore fiscal sanity (fiscal restraint as he calls it). He recognizes that government is most often the cause and not the solution of our problems. Josiah Schmidt of recently touted Philpot as one of “5 Super Awesome Underdogs To Get Behind Now“:

Philpot’s campaign is being fueled by Tea Party energy and lots of state/national support. Philpot is a proud “liberty candidate” who will oppose deficit spending, tax increases, and government regulations, and will fight to stop any increase in the national debt ceiling. He is a strong supporter of limited government and 10th amendment states’ rights.

Plus Morgan Philpot is a Romney endorsed candidate to boot.

Can Morgan Philpot Win?

YES!! But only with your help. Patrick Ruffini captures well why Morgan Philpot could and should win in the Utah 2nd district:

Over the coming days, I’ll outline exactly where I think the “sleeper” seats are, and this past weekend, one more popped on my radar: Utah’s 2nd Congressional district.

You might be asking why Utah, one of the most Republican states in the Union, sends a Democrat to Congress, and it’s a good question. In a year when Republicans got massacred, McCain still managed 58% of the vote in the Salt Lake City-based UT-2, making it #5 on my PVI-ordered list of Republican targets for 2010.

The vulnerability for now rests on the Democratic side of the ledger. In a sidenote to Bob Bennett’s ouster at the state Republican Convention last weekend, Blue Dog Democrat incumbent Jim Matheson was forced into a primary with pro-HCR liberal Claudia Wright. In a shocker, Matheson only managed 55% among party insiders against an opponent with $9K cash on hand.

The Republican nomination fight is clearer: Morgan Philpot managed to clear a primary and is the nominee. We need to get behind him with our dollars now.

In a wave year, I’m watching for dozens of mini rogue “waves” to take out incumbents previously thought safe — think of how Rosty was famously ousted in 1994, or Joseph Cao’s shock victory against Dollar Bill Jefferson, or races like Tim Walz vs. Gil Gutknecht or Nancy Boyda vs. Jim Ryun in 2006 that were basically thought safe.

Philpot is an appealing grassroots candidate who could capitalize on a national wave and take the seat.

In a year when Republicans got swept across the board McCain won 58% of the vote in Utah’s most liberal (or rather least conservative) district! The UT 2nd district has a Republican +15 PVI (Partisan Voting Index) meaning the GOP should have a 15% edge over the Dems, making it the 5th highest GOP leaning PVI in a district that has a Democrat incumbent. Utah has taken steps recently to vote-in more conservative candidates (ie. Chris Cannon and Bob Bennett - I should note that Mitt’s endorsement of Bennett is one of the very few things I disagree with him on.) We can do more of the same with the Matheson/Philpot race. With the proper organization, funding and national attention there is no reason Matheson should be allowed to retain his seat, especially against a strong conservative like Philpot.

No matter where you live, this is a battle worth fighting. Or, as a businessman, I’d like to say this race will give me the highest ROI for my money and efforts. Morgan Philpot is a candidate that all Utah Republicans can agree on, whether they be moderate, conservative or libertarian.

What you can do to:

Give Philpot your vote: If you by chance live in UT-2 be sure to register to vote, and get 10 of your friends to commit to register and show up at the November elections to vote for Philpot.

Give Philpot some of your hard-earned money: DONATE HERE. Plenty of funding is ABSOLUTELY VITAL for any campaign. Matheson is an incumbent and well-funded. He will not go down quietly. He will have plenty of money to spend on advertising to assuage conservative family-centered Utah voters into thinking he is just like them. Let’s level the playing field and give Philpot the boost he needs to compete.

Give Philpot some of your precious time: If you live in or near the 2nd district please consider volunteering for his campaign. Volunteers can post signs, do neighborhood walks, and even join Philpot in marching in some summer parades.

Spread the word: If you are not on Facebook yet it is time to sign-up and get with the action. It is extremely easy to network with friends (who are all on FB already) and share with them Morgan Philpot’s Facebook page. In fact will be doing a one-day “Like-Bomb” on our Facebook page to encourage people to “like” or become a fan of Philpot’s page. Our goal is to push Philpot’s fan total (currently at 760), past that of Jim Matheson (1242) by the end of tomorrow.

Last thoughts:

1 - I’m convinced Morgan Philpot is right for the Utah and right for the nation. I plan to use whatever influence, time, and energy I have to help promote him. I have a 80% probability of going to march with him during the American Fork Steel Days parade this Saturday and will bring as many family and friends as I can. I would thrilled to meet any of our readers there. Any supporter that attends will get a free PHILPOT PHAN t-shirt from his campaign, and (if you want) a free MITT ’12 sticker from me. If I’m not able to make it I’m certain that either Luke or Aaron, or both, will be there.

2 - A vote for Matheson is a vote for Pelosi. The UT-2 district is only one of many seats currently held by Dems that we can and will take back this November to oust Pelost as Speaker of the House.

3 - I’m a Philpot Phan!

Mitt Romney Tops the PPP GOP Nominee Poll

Public Policy Polling asks 614 Republican Primary voters: If the Republican candidates for President in 2012 were Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, and Mitt Romney who would you support?

[table "8" not found /]

What I find interesting:

  • Romney is right in the mix with all conservatives and GOP, but is far ahead of the pack with moderates and independents, which bodes very well for the general election and electability.
  • Every poll I see shows that Romney consistency outperforms with men, but lacks with women.
  • Palin does very poorly among independents at 3%. I would be very concerned about that if she goes to the general election.
  • That big goose-egg (or dash) for Romney with the young crowd has to be a concern. Expanding online campaign to be more ‘hip’ is a must.
  • Palin at 60% with 18-29? I have now idea why that would be so extraordinarily high.
  • Romney continues to dominate the Northeast while Huckabee continues his reign in the South

What think you?

Scott Brown Could be our 41st Vote in the Senate!

Mitt Romney issued a fund raising letter on behalf of Scott Brown. Mitt has already endorsed Scott Brown and held at least one event on his behalf. If you aren’t familiar with the situation in Massachusetts, here’s the lowdown: When Mitt Romney was Governor of Massachusetts, state lawmakers changed the law so Governor Romney couldn’t appoint a senator should John Kerry win the Presidential election and his Senate seat become vacant. Once Romney left and it became apparent that Ted Kennedy was in his last days, state lawmakers and current MA Governor Deval Patrick scrambled to change the law again in a blatant political move to give the Democrats in the United States the 60th vote they’ve needed so badly.

With the election only 21 days away, we need to give Scott Brown as much support as we can. If Scott Brown wins, the Democrats lose their filibuster-proof majority and Republicans get the 41st vote they need so dearly to protect the country from the dangerous over-reaches of Harry Reid and the Democrats in the Senate.

Here is Mitt’s letter:

Dear Friend,

I hope you are enjoying the holidays and let me take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year!

This is going to be an exciting year politically. Republicans stand to make significant gains in Senate, House, and gubernatorial contests around the country. But before we get to the 2010 mid-term elections, there’s something brewing in Massachusetts.

A special election to replace Ted Kennedy in the United States Senate will be held on January 19th. State Senator Scott Brown is running a determined campaign to make history by becoming the first Republican Senator from Massachusetts since Edward W. Brooke 30 years ago.

Scott’s election would shock the country and send a strong message that business as usual in Washington is coming to an end. He would bring badly-needed fiscal restraint to an out-of-control budget process that is adding trillions of dollars to our national debt.

If he is successful, Scott will be the crucial 41st vote against President Obama’s healthcare bill when it comes back to the Senate for final passage.

As Governor, I could always count on Scott’s vote in the Legislature in the fight against higher taxes and wasteful spending. He is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army National Guard and understands the importance of a strong national defense. He’s opposed to cap and trade, wants strict limits on spending and is in favor of broad-based tax cuts to get our economy moving.

I hope you will visit Scott’s website and consider helping him with a donation.

There are only 22 days left until the special election in Massachusetts. Wouldn’t it be nice to elect a fiscal conservative to Ted Kennedy’s seat in the United States Senate?


Mitt Romney

Now, you may be asking yourself how a conservative Republican like Scott Brown who is loved by the Tea Party patriots could possibly win in liberal Massachusetts. First of all, remember that Mitt won a statewide election for governor in Massachusetts, so a true conservative can win. It just takes a candidate that is far superior to his opponent and a little bit of good fortune. As seen at Scott Brown Goes Viral, we may have a perfect storm on our hands to win this election and really send a message to Washington that business as usual is coming to an end. If the Democrats lose this seat, it will be such a bruising blow that I find it incomprehensible that they wouldn’t halt many of their more radical proposals.

So, here are some ways we can help:

1. We can support Scott Brown on his social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube listed at

2. We can donate to his campaign and/or sign up for his January 11th moneybomb at Red Invades Blue Moneybomb

3. We can forward this post to as many other people as we can.

Scott Brown’s website has even more ways to help. With your help, we can remind Washington that they work for us!

UPDATE: Veterans for Scott Brown

“Radical Islamic terrorists are this century’s darkest nightmare. My opponent, Martha Coakley and I have very different views on how to approach this threat. When dealing with terrorists our tax dollars should pay for weapons to stop these terrorists – not lawyers to defend them. The Constitution and laws exist to protect this nation and its citizens. They do not grant rights and privileges to enemies in wartime.” ~ Senator Scott Brown, Lieutenant Colonel MA Army National Guard (30 yrs)

Happy New Year from Scott Brown, daughters Arianna and Ayla

Update: Huckabee already spoke this morning. Apparently he had some words concerning health care in MA. What could possibly be his motivation?
